The New Republic examines various implications of racial harassment and criticizes a "vaunted conservative ideal: color-blindness." The story finds that it's hard to tell young black men that they are not victims because of their race when police routinely make them victims because of their race." The article looks at "a conservative case against racial profiling" in schools and details the success story of the Maya Angelou Public Charter School. The author, who has helped establish the school, reveals that even though most students at the school have had academic difficulty before, and more than one-third have been in the juvenile court system, more than 90 percent go to college after graduation.
