How Is America's Education System Helping Racial Injustice??

| 1 Comment

A big problem that I had when talking about injustice is the lack of education about it that was available. I wrote about it in my 2nd blog, but i recently came across this article and thought that it added to my point.

There is a astounding lack of knowledge about this history of civil rights in younger generations of students. If we don't understand our history we are doomed to repeat it. But even more importantly, if we don't understand the problem of racial and economic injustice in society, we are fated to perpetuate it. Thanks for posting!
