You (Joe Biden) also worked with them (Senate colleagues) to oppose busing. There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day. That little girl was me.” – California Senator Kamala Harris scolding former Vice President Joe Biden

The original decision in Brown v. Board of Education had not been a decision to integrate schools but to desegregate them – to free black children in any neighborhood where they lived to enter that neighborhood’s school.” – Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Theodore H. White

Linda Brown (1942-2018) wanted to go to her Topeka (Kansas) neighborhood school. As a result of the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision, Linda was able to attend the now desegregated school in her community.

Twenty years later, a litany of activist court decisions compelled states, local school districts and governments to embark on an unprecedented social engineering scheme to integrate schools. The contentious result was the busing of children, based solely upon their skin color, away from their local schools to some school in a distant locale.

Busing actually united black and white parents, who undoubtedly asked a basic question: ‘Why can’t my child go to the school right down the street?” The experiment failed; it failed big time.

Senator Harris is nostalgic about her crosstown bus rides. She supports bringing back busing, exactly 10 years after Barack Obama became the first African American to take the oath of office as president of the United States.

Almost DailyBrett remembers Obama’s 2009 inaugural celebration. The United States proved once again, it is indeed an exceptional nation. Alas, that time and euphoria were short-lived. As George C. Patton reportedly quoted, “All glory is fleeting.” Just didn’t think the good feelings would go away so quickly.

Kamala Harris’ campaign confirmed this week: She supports the return of race-based busing.

Bernie Sanders once vehemently opposed busing. We now know a Sanders administration would seriously consider bringing back … busing.

When the next debate moderator asks Democrats for a show of hands, this time on busing, wonder how many of Kamala’s presidential campaign colleagues will bravely support the restoration of busing?

Will busing restoration make it into the Democratic Party Platform? Almost DailyBrett is taking the “over.”

And for those who dare openly cringe at the second coming of divisive busing, will they be labeled as “racists” for their honesty? Bet on it.

“Liberal Train Wreck” – Former Delaware Senator Joe Biden on Busing

“It’s a failure, it didn’t work.” – President Ronald Reagan on court-enforced busing.

“I oppose busing. It’s an asinine concept, the utility of which has never been proven to me.” – Senator Joe Biden, 1975

Do you ever wonder why so many are fearful of government?

Brown v. Board of Education paved the way for Linda Brown and millions of other school children to attend their local school. Our schools were desegregated.

Busing did not accomplish integration. Instead, parents across the nation (e.g., Boston) asked a basic logical question: “Why can’t my child go to our neighborhood school? Is that too much to ask?”

Senator Harris may be nostalgic for her 40, 45, 50-minute or one-hour-long bus rides, but nonetheless she differed with Civil Rights pioneer, Linda Brown.

Linda just wanted to go to her local Topeka, Kansas school, and that’s exactly what happened.

Will anyone running for president have the fortitude to absorb the predictable “racist” charges, courageously take a stand against a busing practice that did not work and will not work?

Almost DailyBrett can think of at least one candidate, who is up to the challenge.
