We cannot solve racial inequality with legislation alone, it comes with education on racial injustice and inequality at all levels of life. I’m not an educator so I have no lesson plan for this very large problem, but I do hope there are those out there who have the skills.

We all need to make an effort to educate ourselves on the basic issues such as those related to housing, schooling and, most of all, employment.

You can go on-line to trusted sites, such as Wikipedia, for data. Also, some government sites like Departments of Commerce, Education, Health and Human Services and Housing and Urban Development.

Keep digging on “United States Government Departments” and you’ll find lots of useful data to help you satisfy your curiosity.

One solution to abdication is education. Let’s do it.
