From The Shreveport Times:

Nine black children attending Red River Elementary School were directed last week to the back of the school bus by a white driver who designated the front seats for white children.

....After Richmond and Williams filed complaints with the School Board, Transportation Supervisor Jerry Carlisle asked Davis to make seat assignments for her passengers, Sessoms said."But she still assigned the black children to the back of the bus," she added.And the nine children had to share only two seats, meaning the older children had to hold the younger ones in their laps.

....A new solution reached Monday by School Board officials has a black bus driver driving across town to pick up the nine black children.

Honestly, what can I say to follow that?

....except to point out that the current "solution" is to have a black bus driver ship only the black children - seperately, but equally - across town.

Good Jesus, what is wrong with us?
