Imagine a school where the valedictorian is black, but is named co-valedictorian and forced to share that honor with a white student whose GPA is lower. Imagine that black student was not allowed to give a speech at graduation until after that white student had spoken. Imagine that black student being asked to walk behind that white student with the lower GPA. You probably imagined this happening in a movie set several decades ago, right? It happened. In reality. Recently.
