74. It was a tool

 

But the real issue was the segregated schools and neighborhoods. The segregation was so entrenched that the courts eventually had to reassign the students to other schools in order to overcome the segregation. Sometimes the schools weren't far away and in walking distance. Sometimes they were farther away and the school provided transportation.

But school bus transportation was very common - kids had been bused all the time for decades and only a small percentage of school busing was for integration. In fact busing was often used to keep schools segregated with black children riding for miles common often passed one or more white schools.

That said, how else other than school reassignments do you propose schools could have been desegregated - especially in communities in which the neighborhoods had been strictly segregated for years and the school boards had consistently refused in the 15r 20 years after Brown to make any effort to integrate?
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
