This moderate and sane "separate but equal" solution to poorly funded southern black schools in the 1950s can prevail almost a century after the Warren court's wrongheaded 1954 Brown v. Board of Education extremist solution (like using an atom bomb to demolish an obsolete building). It did achieve fair funding but by the reckless experiment of racially integrating all schools, then the nation as a whole, launching a century of racial conflict. A recent book-length report on public resistance to racial integration, written by two pro-integration authors, one white and the other black, shows that four decades of forced integration have failed. The authors conclude it was idealistic but wholly unrealistic (Leonard Steinhorn and Barbara Diggs- Brown, By the Color of Our Skin: The Illusion of Integration and the Reality of Race). The Brown v. Board blunder is promptly reversed in the new separatist America.
