  • Will this ever change?

    After you listen to The Problem We all live With  please respond to the following:

    The French critic and novelist Jean Baptist Alphonse Karr once stated,  "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose"which translates in English as The more things change the more they stay the same.  If integration has worked in the past then why such continued resistence to it? Do you see any difference in the attitudes of those who resisted integration in Missouri in 2013 with those who resisted integration in Topeka (Kansas) 1954, Little Rock (AK) 1957, Boston (Mass) 1970s, or Yonkers (NY) 1980s? Please provide evidence to support your response.

    You must post two responses. One response to the issue and a response to any of the other responses. Let us know who you are.
