No excuses?

The race issue is incredibly sticky and prone to over-simplification.  When I stumble over a word of wisdom on the subject I intend to pass it on.  In this piece, New York Times columnist Charles Blow has some important things to say about children and the limits of positive thinking.  Let me know what you think.

One thought on “No excuses?

  1. Of course, children have a lot of good reasons (not excuses) why they can’t or don’t learn, why they can’t have a healthy emotional life, etc. What if other races lived in the least protected, secure, areas of our country? It’s easy to blame but better and more responsible to work to improve conditions children have to grow up in.
