Suneri Kothari November 11, 2015 AP US Gov. Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka (1954) Background & Climate: This case occurred in 1950s, a period during which there was much racial segregation and inequality for colored people. Children attended different schools based on color: black children did not go to the same school as white children. There was also separation between the two races in other public places such as restaurants and trains. This segregation was legal in 1954 because of the “separate but equal” doctrine that resulted from the Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) case, among other factors.

Bush's "No Child Left Behind Act", there has been a political debate about education.

His short story, "Reading Comprehension Text 1", details the inner workings of a broken system.
In the novel “Roll of Thunder,” Papa says to Stacey, “Far as I’m concerned friendship between black and white don’t mean much cause it usually ain’t on an equal basis.” His statement denotes that although people may believe that the two races could be friends the laws separating them mean they would never have a true and equal friendship. The history of black slavery demonstrates how they were thought of as less human and therefore treated accordingly. Although slavery was abolished, the generational racism and the beliefs of people who thought blacks were less human meant that they were avoided and segregated by the Jim Crow’s Laws that were specifically put in place to divide the two races. Black slavery began in 1619 and ended in 1865 after the Civil War. The two centuries of slavery helped develop the white’s opinion about black people.
It shows that the African American community was super poor compared to white people. It shows that even people around the colored people were treated poorly.

The above incidents indicate that hate speech on the college campus is very common and serious. Some people argue that we must impose some sort of punishment for perpetrators of offensive speech on campus, whereas some oppose regulation on offensive speech. Mari J. Matsuda, the author of the article, “Assultive speech and academic freedom,” is a supporter of hate speech regulation on campus. First, she argues that hate speech on campus violates American democracy since it infringes on the rights of minority students to have equal access and equal participation in the college (Matsuda, p.150). She mentions that it is unlikely for most university students of color to experience campus life without coming across offensive speech or harassment (151).
Welders Equal Philosophers Consider the idea that a welder deserves the same intellectual respect as a philosopher. If you have conformed to society’s standards of what jobs require the most intellectual activity, then this idea might seem irrational and intriguing. On the other hand, people such as Mike Rose, author of The Mind at Work, would claim that this idea is true and even defends it in his book. Rose is a firm believer that the modern world has undervalued blue-collar workers. It is common for people to criticize vocational schools and advertise for four-year colleges, and that is what provoked Rose to take a stand.

The Supreme Court ruled in their favor stating, "segregation of white and colored children in public schools has a detrimental effect upon the colored children. The impact is greater when it has the sanction of the law; for the policy of separating the races is usually interpreted as denoting the inferiority of the Negro group."

This argument does well providing strong statistics found through credible sources such as The Wall Street Journal, however, the article failed to provide a counter-argument or different viewpoint regarding
Through this type of education, the inevitable question that black students will start to possess is “Am I invisible?”. Is this something that a student should be taking away at the end of the day?
