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

“My answer is that I’ve found it an absorbing example of how a society can cling to policies and practices that serve no rational purpose. They persist because they become embedded, usually bolstered by those who benefit. Nor are the issues entirely academic. Making mathematics a barrier ends up suppressing opportunities, stifling creativity, and denying society a wealth of varied talents.”
Andrew Hacker, The Math Myth: And Other STEM Delusions

“Those choices are not just for yourself. There will be the perplexing—and equally painful—task of having to explain to your children why they will not be treated as other Americans: that they will never be altogether accepted, that they will always be regarded warily, if not with suspicion or hostility.”
Andrew Hacker, Two Nations: Black and White, Separate, Hostile, Unequal
