  •  What I find amazing (16+ / 0-)

    Is how Obama and his team clearly thought out a lot of the stuff that they were going to do, and much of it was stuff hardly anyone in the mainstream (white) liberal crowd ever talks about. Research on the racial disparities in school punishments has been going on for at least a decade now, but for Obama to put the full force of the federal government behind it means a lot. It also means that a whole lot more people are hearing about it much sooner than they would have if the federal government had stayed out of it.

    I hesitate to call your diary "nice", as it is full of painful incidents, but I am glad you shared.

    Time is of no account with great thoughts, which are as fresh to-day as when they first passed through their authors' minds ages ago. - Samuel Smiles
