I only have one problem with this. By my understanding, racism is simply a specific form of prejudice. At its core, its no different than classism or sexism. The question is "What is the bias?" not "Is there a bias?" For a person to say they are not racist, they are saying that they are not prejudice, that they do not pre-judge. But, as she said, we all do that. Prejudice is one of the ways we quantify our suroundings with the small amount of information given in a short amount of time. I...

Despite what theologians are saying today, the Hebrew Bible is very clear about how humans should relate to nature and the environment. In the quoted scripture, the word "over" is used a total of five times to describe man's relationship to nature. Thus, there is no mistaking that the scripture clearly situates man above nature rather than having an equal status to nature. This kind of relationship creates an unbalanced, confrontational, and even hostile relationship between the two...

Not public education, quality education through the siphoning off of funds by private schools. Of course it is the logical chain of events. The issue includes transferring money from public, non-profit entities to private, for-profit entities. Private entities compete with other private entities and their incentive to be the best is profit . To that end they are empowered to make student admission decisions that public schools cannot make.
