Linda was the young girl who's father refused to give into racial divide and fought all the way to the Supreme Court to allow his daughter to attend an all white school in Topeka, KS, in 1951. Brown vs. Topeka School Board.

2. The country needs another case like Brown vs. The Board of Education

The schools have been re-segregated along racial lines. School choice has starved mostly black schools of the funds they need to provide a quality education.

Devos and her kind have decided they want to put the for profit model into place for education. This problem is only going to get worse.

Still fighting for rights and life 64 years later in the land of the free and home of the brave, a statement of hypocrisy showing yet another lie of ALL citizens STILL 2018 being not equal or that the statement is all inclusive for ALL citizens of AMERIKKKA. Sad indeed of how entitlement and privilege OF SOME can keep justice, equality and inclusiveness moving at a snails pace, historically speaking. That AA had to fight to vote, attend school of choice, use a goddamn toilet that was clean...Yeah I had to use toilets for 'colored people', is the ultimate spit in the face about equality in ameriKKKa, say from 1776 til 2018. Sad indeed.

And per all the songs...STILL SINGING!!!!!
