“Friendship often grows out of shared experiences”
Andrew Hacker, Two Nations: Black and White, Separate, Hostile, Unequal

“When this parable has been put to white students, most seemed to feel that it would not be out of place to ask for $1 million for each future year they would be living as a black American. And this calculation conveys, as well as anything, the value that white people place on their own skin. Indeed, to be white is to possess a gift whose value can be appreciated only after it has been taken away. And why ask for so large a sum? Surely this needs no detailing. The money would be used, as best it could, to buy protection from the discriminations and dangers white people know they would face once they were perceived to be black.”
Andrew Hacker, Two Nations: Black and White, Separate, Hostile, Unequal

“Colleges should be helping to build the next generation’s future, not mortgaging it.”
