would likely be arrested but a high-school student unlike a worker could spend time in jail without creating an economic problem for the community But the impact the students ended up having was more than just economic Television footage of Birmingham police commissioner “Bull” Connor turning police dogs and firehoses on the children was a game-changer for politicians at the national level That incident followed by the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in September which killed four young girls helped pave the way for the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 King scholar Clayborne Carson has described the Children’s Crusade as having “turned the tide of the movement" Despite the brutality they saw during the Children’s Crusade young people remained at the center of the movement For example the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee trained African-American children at “Freedom Schools” which taught teens everything from black history to how to deal with hostile white peers Joined during 1964’s “Freedom Summer” by young men and women who attended colleges in the North SNCC activists honed in on voting rights as their main goal even though many of them were not yet old enough to vote themselves They realized that “the surest way to achieve change was through electoral politics getting African-Americans right to vote so they could elect people to act in their political and economic interests” says Kevin Gaines a professor of Africana Studies at Cornell University and author of Uplifting the Race: Black Leadership Politics and Culture During the Twentieth Century As today’s student gun-control activists of the Never Again movement also hope to demonstrate they showed that being old enough to vote is not a prerequisite to helping to determine who gets elected Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter Anti-War Pro-Voting Demonstrators at the University of California Berkeley started incorporating SNCC’s mass disobedience tactics for campus demonstrations in the fall of 1964 That December hundreds of students occupied a campus building in what Isserman calls “the formative campus confrontation” over among other matters the rights of students to protest Inspired by the student protests at Berkeley student demonstrations spread at campuses nationwide especially as the war in Vietnam escalated And the protests weren’t just at colleges and universities A 13-year-old was at the center of one of the cases that significantly weakened that principle of in loco parentis the idea that students surrender some rights when they go to school as the school takes on the parental role Junior high school student Mary Beth Tinker was suspended in 1965 for wearing an armband to school to protest the war in Vietnam About four years later in Tinker v Des Moines Independent Community School District the US Supreme Court ruled 7-2 that students do not “shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate” “Young people [were] claiming rights and winning them” Isserman says “and changing the legal structure of the country in the process” Politicians took note of this new level of political activism among students Along with the War in Vietnam which led to the refrain “Old enough to fight old enough to vote” recognition of that generation’s high level of formal schooling and civic education was a factor that led to the movement to lower the voting age to 18 As de Schweinitz writes in Age in America: The Colonial Era to the Present “[it] was hardly accidental” that the issue sprouted in 1968 a watershed year when “militant youth protests” broke out over the Tet Offensive the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr and Robert Kennedy the release of the Kerner Commission Report and particularly heated Democratic and Republican national conventions By 1970 de Schweinitz notes Americans in the 18-to-21 age range were already participating in political activities student-led demonstrations voter registration drives and political campaigns “The young person can take the time to look at the system question it and attempt to change it” as a 1968 White House report put it “At 18 19 and 20 young people are in the forefront of the political processworking listening talking participating…” Mike Mansfield the Senate Majority Leader at the time said during discussion of the matter in 1970 “I think those of us above the age of 30 could stand a little educating from these youngsters” The 26th Amendment lowering the voting age to 18 was ratified in 1971 Patricia Keefer at her office in Washington DC in 1971 holding up placards urging 18-year-olds (who have just received to right to vote) to use their power and vote Bettmann / Getty Images What Comes Next It’s too soon to tell what kind of impact the survivors of the school shooting in Parkland will have on the national gun-control debate but American history suggests that there are two sides to the matter On the one hand it can be hard to sustain a movement that is centered on a place from which its participants are supposed to graduate “Student movements tend to be evanescent” Isserman says “When students graduate they move on and it’s left up to whoever comes along to continue [it] They rarely leave a kind of institutional framework” On the other hand today’s student protesters have tools at their disposal that their forebears lacked While their predecessors in the civil rights movement had local radio DJs spread the word about protests using code words and student activists today can address the public directly through social media Plus at least one idea that’s been floated in the wake of the Florida shooting does have historical precedent The voting age should be lowered to 16 Jason Kander (@JasonKander) February 20 2018 While there’s no major national movement to lower the voting age underway at the moment one thing about young protesters is already certain Though eventual graduation can be an obstacle for a student movement aging out isn’t entirely a downside After all the young people who march next month for gun control like the

Write to Lily Rothman at [email protected] 3:08 pm ET Health officials in Dallas were assessing about 100 people for possible contact with the Ebola virus Thursday while four family members of the Texas hospital patient diagnosed with the disease were placed under quarantine Wednesday night to stem its potential spread Thomas Eric Duncan’s close family members who spent time with Duncan in an apartment near the north Dallas hospital where he is now battling the virus received hand-delivered orders from Texas and Dallas County officials not to leave the apartment or to receive visitors without approval until at least Oct 19 the end of the virus’s 21-day incubation period The order was given after health officials grew worried about their ability to carry out necessary monitoring of the family members which includes twice-daily check-ups to take the individuals’ temperatures Dr David Lakey commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services cited “concern about our ability to be confident that monitoring was going to take place the way we needed it to take place" The order is being enforced by a law enforcement official stationed outside the apartment The quarantined family members have taken rudimentary measures to prevent themselves from exposure to the disease including placing Duncan’s bedding and clothing in a trash bag said health officials The officials said they have been working to arrange a professional cleaning service for the family which is receiving deliveries of groceries “There is no perfect response” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins “People are doing their best here” Duncan remains in “serious” condition according to a spokesperson for the hospital Texas Health Presbyterian He is being kept in a private ward under the care of top doctors Duncan has access to a phone to communicate with family members but is not allowed to receive visitors Operations elsewhere in the hospital are unaffected The number of people being assessed for Ebola symptoms swelled overnight as local state and federal officials scrambled to compile a list of anyone who had immediate or indirect contact with Duncan the first person to develop Ebola in the United States None of the people being monitored have exhibited any signs of the virus Of the roughly 100 people on the list of individuals being assessed for possible contact with the virus only a “handful” are thought to have had potential exposure said Dr Thomas Frieden the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) There are no plans to isolate additional people officials said Health officials will use a technique known as contact tracing to identify the circle of people who are potentially at risk It involves finding everyone who came into close contact with the patient and then interviewing them to identify additional potential contacts who are subsequently tracked down and interviewed themselves This form of shoe-leather epidemiology will continue until officials are confident that no one is at risk for contracting or spreading the virus health officials said Compiling a list of possible contacts is the preliminary phase of a technique known as contact tracing The contact tracing will be carried out by a team of five epidemiologists with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in concert with county and state health officials The process involves both phone calls and in-person visits during which interviews are conducted and possible contacts are provided with information about the virus and informed about best practices to prevent its spread Health officials will check in with those contacts daily to monitor for symptoms of the virus which include high fever severe headache vomiting and diarrhea It is no surprise the tally of possible contacts has grown Health officials are casting a very wide net and the number of people on the list of possible contacts is expected to shrink dramatically as the investigation continues and contacts are divided into high-risk low-risk and no risk categories health officials said The majority of people being monitored did not necessarily have contact with Duncan himself but rather with someone who Duncan encountered “No one is symptomatic as of yet” said Erikka Neroes a spokeswoman for Dallas County Health and Human Services “either in the first group or that second group” Apart from the four family members under quarantine all the people being monitored are able to move freely Ebola is not contagious until a person shows symptoms of the virus Health officials are not ruling out the possibility that more Ebola cases will emerge but they say they are confident in their ability to contain the situation While extremely deadly Ebola is difficult to transmit It is communicated through bodily fluids like vomit or blood but cannot travel through the air “The bottom line here is we remain confident that we can contain any spread of Ebola within the US” said Frieden Still he added “there could be additional cases” Write to Alex Altman at [email protected] 1970 TIME cover story that ranked the state’s counties by how big the gap

war IDEAS Glaude is the William S Tod Professor of Religion and African American Studies at Princeton University and the author of Democracy in Black In a recent viral video an unidentified white woman in line at a grocery store in Oregon dressed in a floral romper and black knee-high boots overheard a black woman’s phone conversation She believed this black woman was trying to sell food stamps illegally The exchange became heated and the white woman was told in no uncertain terms to mind her business “Oh it is my business” the white woman responded “Because I pay my taxes” She then said something that quite frankly stunned me: “We’re going to build this wall” This was not an oddly timed statement about her views on immigration; it was a declaration of her whiteness and by extension her view of who belonged in this country She might as well have called the black woman a nigger She didn’t She called the police instead But no this wasn’t a video of police violence or another example of some white person hurling racial epithets In so many ways the argument between these two women captured the soft bigotry that has from beneath the surface enabled American public policy and individual behavior for decades This woman years after the departure of what Newt Gingrich called in 2011 “the most successful food-stamp President in American history” saw a member of Mitt Romney’s “47% … who are dependent upon government … who pay no income tax” This white woman witnessed Ronald Reagan’s welfare queen Now she had not just a new phrase build this wall but also the confidence that the President would support her in her indignation and that the problem would soon be resolved America would be great again It is this type of outburst though blaring and easy to denounce that provides many Americans with a familiar experience: the moral comfort of having someone else to blame for our nation’s racial struggles If only we the non-racists could kick her out or lock her up It is relatively easy to blame our current struggles on these loud racists who have been emboldened by the election of Donald Trump But this is typical American racial melodrama We need easily marked villains and happy endings Yet this recital of condemnation all too often hides the messiness of our own moral lives: that we aren’t absolved of our complicity simply by the politicians we support especially since the American public so rarely pushes for policies that enact our supposed commitment to racial equality The fact is that Americans have grown comfortable with racism resting just beneath the surface of our politics to be activated whenever a politician or a community needed it or some racist incident exhumed it only for us to bury it once again What has resulted is an illusion that blinds us to what was actually happening right in front of our noses and in our heads we believed that our country had become less racist because we were not as brazen as we once were Trump has shattered that illusion He rode race the third rail of American politics straight to the White House He challenged Obama’s citizenship called Mexicans rapists and criminals proposed to ban all Muslims from entering the country insisted on the need for “law and order” argued that immigration was changing the “character” of the United States and openly courted white supremacists He dog-whistled in a way that let no one feign deafness Trump promised to dismantle Obamacare and provide a “beautiful” alternative to make Mexico pay for “the wall” and to restore America’s manufacturing greatness jobs and tax relief included His pledges spoke directly to the forgotten American’s sense of victimhood: that he had been left behind during the Obama years and that his way of life was under threat Trump exists in a sweet spot between the soft bigotry of self-contradictory American liberals and the loud racism of those who shout “nigger” and demand that Latino people go back to Mexico all stuck in an economic system that cannot reconcile the startling gap between the top 1% and those busting their behinds to make ends meet Trump sits right there amid the mess and false promises with a smirk on his face But Trump isn’t some nefarious character unlike anything we have seen before He embodies the hatreds and fears that have been part of America’s politics since its founding and that erupt with every rapid change in our society and world He stands in a tradition of American politics that can be traced to Strom Thurmond’s 1948 Dixiecrat run for the presidency George Wallace’s bids for the presidency in 1968 and 1972 and Patrick Buchanan’s runs in 1992 and ’96 Each of these men could move a crowd with their homespun rhetoric and their willingness to speak unvarnished truth with little regard for the consequences and each sought to give voice to a deeply felt sense of white victimhood as the nation grappled with significant social transformation be it the end of the Jim Crow South or the tumult of the ’60s revolution America responded at least in words by othering them: These were marginal men and marginal thoughts The grievances were real the country said The messengers and their racial animus were the problem This separation of so-called grievance from racial animus was a grave error and it is one we are in the process of repeating In 2016 the degree to which a person deeply identified as white “strongly related to Republicans’ support for Donald Trump” political scientists John Sides Michael Tesler and Lynn Vavreck write in their forthcoming book Identity Crisis: The 2016 Presidential Campaign and the Battle for the Meaning of America For instance among white millennials who voted for Trump a sense of white vulnerability “the perception that whites through no fault of their own are losing ground to others” and racial resentment were more important factors than economic anxiety found researchers Matthew Fowler Vladimir Medenica and Cathy Cohen of the GenForward Survey at the University of Chicago In fact Tesler says and this insight goes beyond those millennials “economic anxiety isn’t driving racial resentment; rather racial resentment is driving economic anxiety” Despite this we heard over and over again from pundits and politicians including Democrats that racism couldn’t explain the counties that voted for Donald Trump and Barack Obama that more attention needed to be given to the dire circumstances of working white men and women that Trump’s election was a white working-class often rural backlash and what was needed was a focus on Middle America This criticism coalesced with an ongoing obsession about what suburban white America was thinking All the while they decried the President’s use of explicit racism as opposed to the implicit kind they had been endorsing knowingly or not The problem was him not us It felt like folks weren’t fighting the true problem They were in fact protecting it Our narrow focus on explicit racists misses a development that explains our current moment: that much of our struggle with race today is bound up in the false innocence of white suburban bliss and the manic effort to protect it no matter the costs In the late 1960s and early ’70s for example millions of white homeowners in the nation’s suburbs for the most part racially segregated communities subsidized by state policies rejected efforts to desegregate schools through busing and vehemently defended the demographic makeup of their neighborhoods These were not people shouting slurs at the top of their lungs (although some did) They were courageous defenders of their quality of life segregated life that is These were the people of the so-called “silent majority” who insisted on free-market meritocracy and embraced a color-blind ideology to maintain their racially exclusive enclaves Their antibusing crusades taxpayer revolts and insistence on neighborhood schools cut across party lines and helped shape national politics Democrats and Republicans appealed to the interests of these voters and many turned their backs on the agenda of the civil rights movement These Americans it was argued were the true victims In his important 2006 book The Silent Majority: Suburban Politics in the Sunbelt South historian Matthew D Lassiter stated clearly the effect of this moment from the late 1960s and early ’70s: The suburban politics of middle-class warfare charted a middle course between the open racism of the extreme right and the egalitarian agenda of the civil rights movement based in an ethos of color-blind individualism that accepted the principle of equal opportunity under the law but refused to countenance affirmative-action policies designed to overcome metropolitan structures of inequality Suburban white America voiced its belief in racial equality but relentlessly held on to white class privilege and all the policies and structures that made it possible Many social scientists would call this the “new racism” or “laissez-faire racism” in which white Americans failed to actively address racial inequality and in doing so maintained the racial status quo Historians like Lassiter would identify it as a key feature of modern American conservatism White people’s expressed racial attitudes by most measures have become progressively better Today according to public-opinion surveys most Americans don’t hold the views of Strom Thurmond in 1948 or George Wallace in 1968 They believe in integrated schools and reject segregated public transportation and the like In the early 1940s according to Harvard sociologist Lawrence Bobo 68% of white Americans supported formal segregation By the 1990s 96% of white Americans believed that black and white children should attend the same school But as Bobo wrote in his classic 2001 essay “Racial Attitudes and Relations at the Close of the 20th Century” these expressed commitments stand alongside “numerous signs of the gulf in perception that often separates blacks and whites” A 2017 study by the Public Religion Research Institute for example showed that 87% of black Americans say black people face a lot of discrimination today Only 49% of white Americans feel the same The disconnect between our stated commitments and our practice is so great that we can’t even agree what the problem is This is the hazy middle ground of the silent majority That same study found that 43% of Republicans said there is a lot of discrimination against whites Only 27% of Republicans said the same with regard to discrimination against blacks This makes sense Since the mid 20th century Republicans have made a living as the party of white grievance even as it puts forward “pro-growth” policies and ardently defends the benefits of small government (I know many of my friends will cry foul here and shout that this conclusion is just an indication of my singular focus on race Their evasion is part of the problem) What is less explored is the Democrats The recognition of the volatility of race led many in the party especially those who founded the Democratic Leadership Council in 1985 to work hard to win back white middle-class voters by addressing their concerns Ever since Democratic strategists and politicians have been in hot pursuit of so-called “Reagan Democrats” and aimed to speak especially after Trump’s election to what they generally described as working-class America Here they rejected bad identity politics in favor of a politics that did not alienate the white working class Bill Clinton’s strategy of triangulation reflected a cynical co-optation of Republican views that drove the party to the center-right while taking black voters among others for granted (In a way Hillary Clinton duplicated this approach in 2016 in her effort to court “Bush Republicans” who said they couldn’t vote for Trump) Meanwhile as politicians courted the ideal white voter racial inequality persisted and black political participation was distorted as we African Americans stood between a party that assumed we would support them nonetheless Americans experienced the confusing effects of this pervasive contradiction between our stated commitments and practices with the election of Barack Obama For many Obama’s ascendance signaled the end of entitlement for whites But instead his presidency occasioned a resurgence of white resentment that set the stage for Trump We experienced the vitriol of the Tea Party and saw several states seek to enact strict voter-ID laws that disproportionately impact black and brown voters sometimes successfully Obama proved our national commitment to racial equality The vehement hatred of him exposed the illusion for what it is All the talk about equality serves as a kind of cover for the actual practices that continue to reproduce differential outcomes for black and brown people and protect white class advantage Trump can promote the lie that his policies alone have produced the lowest black unemployment rate in history He gives no credit to the Obama Administration and pays little attention to black labor-participation rates He is silent about what would happen to the numbers if we include as Harvard sociologist Bruce Western suggests those who are incarcerated Trump only cites the numbers to deepen the illusion and to justify the dismissal of claims of racial inequality as simple cries of victimhood It turns out what we do reveals what we truly believe no matter the public proclamations of our commitment to a more perfect union The facts of our daily lives in this country speak volumes Studies reveal the racial bias in policing; in sentencing and rates of incarceration; in differential punishment in schools for black and brown children; in the persistence of residential segregation and its cascading effect in the life cycle of black people; in how even if an African-American or Hispanic adult earns a college degree she will still financially lag behind a white American with the same degree But all of this was the case before Trump was elected It is not enough then to decry the loud racists or to resist Donald Trump We must once and for all confront the silent majority even if until now we did not realize we are them We must confront ourselves The desire to distance oneself from Trump fits perfectly with the American insistence that we not see ourselves for who we actually are We evade the historical wounds the individual pain and the lasting effects of it all The lynched relative; the buried son killed at the hands of the police; the millions locked away to rot in prisons; the children languishing in failed schools; the smothering concentrated poverty passed down from generation to generation; and the generalized indifference to lives lived in the shadows of the American Dream are generally understood as exceptions to the American story not the rule Blasphemous facts must be banished from view by a host of public rituals and incantations We tell ourselves a particular story of the civil rights movement with Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat and Dr King dreaming of America as it should be Our gaze averted we congratulate ourselves for how far we have come and ruthlessly blame those in the shadows for their plight in life Our innocence secured we feel no guilt in enjoying what we have earned by our own merit in defending our right to educate our children in the best schools and in demanding that we be judged by our ability alone In this illusion Trump has to be seen as singular Otherwise he reveals something terrible about us But not to see yourself in Trump is to continue the lie We must finally reject the lie The longing for a time when matters were simpler and the angst over lost superiority over people of other races and ethnicities will not disappear on their own By 2045 America will be a majority minority nation Demography isn’t destiny and the mere fact that white people will be a minority does not guarantee the country will suddenly become a more racially just society But something fundamental is changing As a country we have been at the crossroads before the Civil War Reconstruction the New Deal the civil rights movement and found ourselves with a choice to be otherwise In each moment no matter the possibilities in front of us or the significant changes in our social imaginations the country held tightly to its prejudices and its unseemly beliefs about the value of white people Trump broke the postcivil rights consensus that America would keep its racism quiet He has unwittingly cracked a pernicious impediment one we still hear in those who in one breath decry his explicit racism and then accept policies and positions that stoke the flames of white racial resentment Surprisingly though Trump has provided us another choice another chance What has for so long been hidden or willfully ignored is now in the open Americans will have to decide whether or not this country will remain racist To make that decision we will have to avoid the trap of placing the burden of our national sins on the shoulders of Donald Trump We must address not just the nasty words but also the policies and the practices We need to look inward Trump is us or better you And by the irony of history my fate and my son’s safety are bound up with you How do we clear the space Can we clear it to debate states’ rights to argue over the necessity of a social safety net to haggle over policing and prisons or to fight about the importance of public education without the undertow of racial animus and without the attribution of bad faith I am convinced that if we are to imagine the country as a genuinely multiracial democracy we have to tell ourselves a better story about who we are how we ended up here and why we keep returning to this hell No more Pollyannaish tales about the inherent greatness of America Ours is a history of not just obvious racist monsters but also of lily white communities with nice picket fences and good schools of concerning comfort of fits and starts and abject failure rife with ordinary people doing horrific and sometimes courageous things Perhaps Samuel Beckett’s words from his 1983 novella Worstward Ho offer a more appropriate (and
