A Shining Bit Of Hope…

“Just because something is impossible does not mean it is not worth doing.”

 – Derrick Bell (1994)

A shining bit of hope in this reading about social inequality in American education. Several times I became very upset regarding our nation’s historical treatment of people of color and the backwards gestures we routinely provide them every time we make a gesture to progress education for minorities. Why is equality in America such a difficult concept to grasp?
