How The Systemic Segregation Of Schools Is Maintained By ‘Individual Choices’

Sixty-three years after the Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education ruling mandated the desegregation of American schools, many schools across the country either remain segregated or have re-segregated.

Journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones tells Fresh Air’s Terry Gross that when it comes to school segregation, separate is never truly equal.

“There’s never been a moment in the history of this country where black people who have been isolated from white people have gotten the same resources,” Hannah-Jones says. “They often don’t have the same level of instruction. They often don’t have strong principals. They often don’t have the same technology.”

Still, when it was time for Hannah-Jones’ daughter, Najya, to attend kindergarten, the journalist chose the public school near their home in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, even though its students were almost all poor and black or Latino. Hannah-Jones later wrote about that decision in The New York Times Magazine.

For Hannah-Jones, sending Najya to the neighborhood school was a moral issue. “It is important to understand that the inequality we see, school segregation, is both structural, it is systemic, but it’s also upheld by individual choices,” she says. “As long as individual parents continue to make choices that only benefit their own children … we’re not going to see a change.”

Hannah-Jones adds that her daughter is thriving at school. “I know she’s learning a lot,” she says. “I think it is making her a good citizen. … It is teaching her that children who have less resources than her are not any less intelligent than her or not any less worthy than her.”

I made this picture in 1994 as a student at OIP&T (The Ohio Institute of Photography & Technology) in Dayton, OH. It was my first attempt at using a view camera, 4x5. This was before the digital revolution really took hold. I was 18 years old, full of ambition, optimism and eager to learn photography very well. Finally getting my hands on a view camera really did fill me with joy. I sort of knew what I was doing but not from experience, only from reading about large format photography on my own and ruminating on the principles. This image wasn’t even the product of an assignment. The moment I was granted lab privileges, I marched my little ass into that studio and made this image.

I still love this picture so much. I didn’t consider myself an animist at the time, that word hadn’t even entered my purview. But I was an animist. I still am. Seeing light. Working with darkness. Photographing Spirit. I didn’t know it in 1994 but this image would become my own personal emblem for my worldview.

You haven't answered my question so I try again. Apart from being able to cast Counterspells (which is a poor color justification for a character), what makes Baral blue? He conceives rebels and pyromancers as literally incapable of change and just wants to kill/imprison them, which is the opposite of blue's "blank slate" philosophy. He also shows no particular interest in amassing knowledge or self-improvement (for example, he hasn't tried to use technology to compensate for his burnt face).

He’s more Blue in the type of magic he wields than his motivation. I agree that the character is not monoblue but rather White/Blue/Red.

It's so funny imaging Dylan trying to download porn on his slow af computer, wasn't it easier just watching it online?

I know this is probably pretty difficult to imagine for some of y'all.. but back in the day, it was super s l o w downloading just about anything under the sun. Hell, just loading a professional website with nice frames and graphics could be an ordeal. Watching streaming content was not A thing yet..the technology wasn’t there. Youtube did not exist nor did Pornhub and the like. You had a crappy 14.4 or 56K modem that was super slow at downloading music and video content. Dylan probably would’ve gotten his fix from a pioneering file sharing utility (likely where he started downloading a lot of MP3s and boasting himself the ‘God of MP3s’) or perhaps went to a BBS (bulletin board service). He’d then initiate the download and if the connection was good, he’d let the thing run for hours - maybe the entire day - just to have one porno video file ready for viewing on his desktop. He would watch the sucker offline as a file taking up space on his probably 500 mb ( 1 gb would’ve been a luxury drive which he may have upgraded his own computer too) drive and then transferred it to a zip drive or burned it to a cd to save room on his desktop for video game playing. He might’ve also gotten VHS pornos from his closest friends or even exchanged dvd disks of pornos burned on them.

why do you hate Ardyn's car tho? It's modern art.

Hey Kyle do you wanna get top/bottom surgery someday? love ya have a nice day :)

I’d love to get top surgery, I’m hoping in the next two years this will be on the table for me.

As for bottom surgery I don’t think technology is advanced enough for me for bottom surgery. My FreeTom has taken a lot of my dysphoria away but my body makes me feel quite dysphoric so I’ve been very sexually abstinent, which is a shame. 

People should be able to enjoy their bodies, perhaps one day.
