“Instead, it was policies like the Interstate Highway Act, whose passage one year earlier helped spawn American suburbia.”
The Supreme Court decision on Brown, in 1954, marked a moral high point in American history, but the practice that it dispatched to the graveyard had already begun to mutate into something less tangible and far more durable. What would, in the end, preserve the principle of “separate inequality” was not protests like the one staged by Orval Faubus, the governor of Arkansas, who deployed the National Guard to Little Rock’s Central High School, in 1957, in order to keep black students out. Instead, it was policies like the Interstate Highway Act, whose passage one year earlier helped spawn American suburbia. In the wake of Brown, private schools, whose implicit mission was to educate white children, cropped up throughout the South. The persistent legacies of redlining, housing discrimination, and wage disparity conspired to produce segregation without Jim Crow—maintaining all the familiar elements of the past in an updated operating system.

..progressives IN the U.S. (the Left, to avoid any confusion) are in a panic concerning the Russian/Ukraine situation, when in fact the ultimate end of these progressive actions are exactly the same actions that THEY vehemently express through word and DEED in the case OF the Russian/Ukraine situation. DOMINANCE. Dominance over EVERYTHING and EVERYONE!
Case in point:
NO FEAR FACTOR
With western oil companies tripping over themselves to assure Putin, it’s no wonder he’s so confident
If the West wants to ensure that Putin’s land grab stops at Crimea, it will impose sanctions that impair or halt the activity of foreign oil and gas companies in Russia and ignore his threats to suspend Ukraine’s gas supply. But as long as it is business as usual in Russian energy, look for the Putin crisis to continue.Russia relies on oil and gas exports to support 52% of the state budget. It is no overstatement to say that oil and gas are the lifeblood both of the Russian economy and Putin’s rule. The current revenue, and the promise that it will continue in relative perpetuity, frees him up to remain how he prefers—unpredictable.

Ankara says Russia’s South Stream pipeline could run to Turkey
ISTANBUL, April 16 (Reuters) – Russia’s controversial South Stream pipeline, which would transport gas via the Black Sea into Europe towards the end of the decade, received support from Turkey on Wednesday when Ankara said it may let the conduit pass through its territory.
Turkey would consider granting access for the line if Moscow made such a request, Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said.
