"The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations" — Separate and Forgotten?

On July 10, 2000, President Bush gave a speech to the NAACP in which he said:
 
“Several months ago I visited Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, where African-Americans confronted injustice and white Americans confronted their conscience. In 43 years, we have come so far in opening the doors of our schools. But today we have a challenge of our own. While all can enter our schools, many—too many, are not learning there.”
