I included this map from a Brookings.edu article in a story I posted here in May 2015.
Today I received another article from Brookings,edu, under the headline "The Most American City: Chicago, race and inequality".
I have started using an annotation tool to highlight and comment on articles like this. Here's the link to the annotated version.
The writer finises with a comment saying, "The broader tragedy of Baltimore, of Ferguson, of Chicago, is that black and Hispanic Americans in the poorest areas of our cities have such bleak prospects. The danger is that once the media bandwagon has moved on, these structural inequalities will remain."
The strategies I've launched since 1993, through the Tutor/Mentor Connection, have aimed to keep attention focused on issues like this, even when the media are not paying attention. Read stories on this blog and the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC blog, to see how I've been doing that for the past 10 years.
