Why Won't Trump Judicial Nominee Wendy Vitter Support the Landmark Desegregation Case "Brown vs. Board of Education" 18.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Did you know? Truthout is a nonprofit publication and the vast majority of our budget comes from reader donations. It's easy to support our work -- click here to get started. Last week, during Wendy Vitter's confirmation hearing for a Louisiana district court judgeship, the Donald Trump appointee (and wife of former Republican senator David Vitter)  refused to say whether she supported Brown v. Board of Education , the landmark 1954 Supreme Court case that barred racial discrimination in public schools. "I don't mean to be coy," Vitter said when asked about it by Sen.

Teachers in red-state America are hard at work teaching us all a lesson. The American mythos has always rested on a belief that this country was born out of a kind of immaculate conception, that the New World came into being and has forever after been preserved as a land without the class hierarchies and conflicts that so disfigured Europe. The strikes, rallies, and walkouts of public school teachers in West Virginia, Oklahoma, Kentucky, soon perhaps Arizona, and elsewhere ...
