4 other cases were heard by the Supreme Court so they ultimately just grouped them all together, making it The Board V. Education of Topeka Case. “ Oliver Brown was chosen as a plaintiff because he was a married man and employed” (Warren 21),they thought that the courts would take them more seriously if the plaintiff was a man, employed, and married. In the beginning, the Supreme Court was split on how to rule school segregation. Some wanted to stand with the verdict from the Plessy V. Ferguson Supreme Court Case, which meant the the “ Separate but Equal” rule would still go on. But on September 1953, Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson passed away, Who originally stood with the verdict of the Plessy V. Ferguson case.
The bus boycott in Tallahassee followed soon after the famous Montgomery Bus Boycott. After a year of not using the bus, the African Americans in Alabama were finally granted their right to sit wherever they pleased on the bus. Right before the start of the boycott, Rosa Parks famously refused to give her seat up to a white man on a bus (http://ow.ly/Yuqbq) .This shows how something as simple as not using public buses can help one gain
After being sent to Tulsa, Willows wrote, “it seemed clear that the trouble did not have any providential causes, and, as the Red Cross had never taken a hand in man-made disasters, I called Washington with the report that: there was an unknown number of homeless refugees, all negroes; there was no adequate relief organization in town; on account of the divisions between the whites and negroes…”. The American Red Cross responded within the first 24 hours of the riot and found over 8000 homeless African Americans. The Red Cross also found that African Americans were denied adequate treatment and set up a makeshift hospital in a local school, and manned two first aid and infant welfare stations. While working in Tulsa, a Red Cross nurse stated, “I can never erase the sights of my first visit to the hospital. There were men wounded in every conceivable way, like soldiers after a big battle.
Boo frequently highlights this issue in her book providing numerous examples. Firstly, free municipal education hardly ever is efficient. According to the author, almost 60% of the public school teachers do not have even an undergraduate degree (Boo 85). Mirchi and other similar schoolchildren are not likely to acquire necessary education that could have potentially helped them and their families to escape poverty. Moreover, they risk learning nothing at all since at public school they mostly “play, take recess, play again, then have lunch” (Boo 85).
In the PBS documentary A Class Divided third grade teacher Jane Elliot tried an experiment to let a class of her third graders experience discrimination. For Jane Elliot’s third grade class in a small town in Iowa discrimination was unheard of because there was only white Christians living in the town. She separated her class based on eye color, so one day she made the kids with blue eyes be superior and the kids with brown eyes be inferior. She did multiple test to see if the way they were treated changed the way they learned. The next day she switched it, so the kids with blue eyes were now inferior and the kids with brown eyes were superior.
Dominantly black and Hispanic schools reflect much lower income families and are typically broken down, such as one elementary school he described. He states: In another elementary school, which had been built to hold 1,000 children but was packed to bursting with some 1,500, the principal poured out his feelings to me in a room in which a plastic garbage bag had been attached somehow to cover part of the collapsing ceiling. ‘This,’ he told me, pointing to the garbage bag, then gesturing around him at the other indications of decay and disrepair one sees in ghetto schools much like it elsewhere, ‘would not happen to white children.’(Kozol
Seeing Through Another’s Eyes In Chaim Potok’s book, The Chosen, blindness is a reoccurring theme throughout the book. The first example of blindness is Danny and Reuven live within five blocks from each other for fifteen years and have no idea that the other person exists. Because the boys have such a different culture, they live in their own world and are blind to each other. When they meet at the baseball field they judge each other based on rumors they have heard or by the actions of the team. Reuven thinks of them as the “whole snooty bunch of Hasidim” (Chosen 62).

She was in the arms of a neighbour under an elm tree, when a bolt of lightning struck the tree. In 1809 her father Richard died this caused her to quit school. When she was young women were not allowed to go to any universities. So she had a very difficult time becoming a paleontologist. In her later years, she had no husband or kids, so she chose work all the time.
