“Many cities, which house a disproportionate portion of the black (and increasingly, Latino) population, lack adequate funding for schools. And decrepit infrastructure and lackluster public transit can make it difficult for residents to gent out of their communities to places with better educational or work opportunities. Temin argues that these impediments exist by design.”
I came across this passage while scrolling through facebook. The article basically argues that there is only an elite group and a disenfranchised group in America today. This part of the article stood out to me because of how well it connects to what we have learned in this class. Specifically, this connects directly to Fleming’s chapter “Ghetto” in City of Rhetoric.
