Interesting

The title is misleading, how to think as in what is happening in a given situation and the theories to apply instead it provides many Case studies with no mention of accuracy.

Greg Walton

seems Greg Walton see's that ethnic kid's are a disadvantge even if they are from a wealthy background, but it doesn't stop him saying White kids then Black kids he always puts the White kid first so no matter what the charts say over the years he is still thinking that White is the most important race!
