Nikole Hannah-Jones in the New York Times Magazine:
The [Brown vs. Board of Education] ruling made clear that because this nation was founded on a racial caste system, black children would never become equals as long as they were separated from white children.
Is the world a better place when we are closer to those who are different than we are? I think the answer is yes. Should black and brown kids need to be in rooms with white kids to make sure they are well educated? That may be another matter entirely.
