Racial, Socioeconomic Segregation Still Rampant in Schools

September 30, 2012 Leave a comment

 

http://rawdawgb.blogspot.com/2012/09/racial-socioeconomic-segregation-still.html

By Torrance Stephens

The impact and history of racial segregation in America is well documented. It has moved in theory from the 1896, the Plessy v. Ferguson Supreme Court case that determined that “separate but equal” was constitutional, to the 1954 landmark Supreme Court decision of Brown v. Board of Education, in which the Supreme Court overturned the Plessy v. Ferguson and ruled that segregation was “inherently unequal.” Although segregation is no longer the law, it is still a very real part of America, in particular in education where the Brown v. Board of Education decision was supposed to obviate such practices.

A new study based on a new analysis of Department of Education data shows that whites are still largely concentrated in schools with other whites and that black and Latino students tend to be in class rooms mostly with other black and Latinos. The report was authored by Gary Orfield, co-director of the Civil Rights Project at the University of California, Los Angeles. Orefield suggest that “Extreme segregation is becoming more common” in America.

By Eva

I’ve been thinking about this particular piece since I got back from Rome, Georgia Italy, in May.

It dawned on me that there are so many of my sisters out here carrying bags that were made in Italy, rocking shoes that were crafted in France, buying hair culled in India, and sporting diamonds mined in Africa…without ever having left their own country. In some cases, ever having left their state…city…or town.

–> Who told lil’ brown girls that their possessions should travel farther in this life than THEY should? <–

Because I’m writing this to tell you differently.

(And no, it’s not just lil’ brown girls, but I’m talking to YOU right now, because your face is my face among our peers.  I want to see all women expand their horizons, but lemme just talk to my sisters for a minute, okay? Ok.) Read more…

Post image for A Mother’s Worst Fear: Learning How To Embrace It—And Then Let It Go

By TRACEY MICHAE’L LEWIS-GIGGETTS

It was an ordinary day. Except that it wasn’t. My daughter and I were making our usual trek into downtown Philadelphia and to her daycare facility. Me: Singing her favorite jams like “The Wheels On the Bus” and “The Itsy-Bitsy Spider” at the top of my lungs. Her: Getting her baby girl giggle on before falling off to sleep for her morning nap. There was so much normalcy. So much peace. That was before the avalanche of sound that came out of nowhere.

The crashing of the red pickup truck into the car behind me.

The slamming of that car into the rear end of mine

The squealing of the brakes as I tried with all my might—and successfully—to stop before hitting the truck in front of me.

The terrified yelling of my mother on the cell phone that had fallen onto the floor from the seat.

And yes, the piercing scream of my child. Read more…
