Desegregation

And they say desegregation was a big step forward,
but integration only covered up a rotten core.
The surfaced might have changed,
but the cauldron is still hot.
Now we're more politically correct,
with less real talk.

Peace,

Funny thing about desegregation...it hasn't really done much for the black underclass. Some years back, I wrote a paper about the deleterious effects of integration and my (black, old-school) instructor wrote me off for the rest of the semester. You can't convince those of our parent's generation that the movement toward integration may have been a misstep.
