i read an op-ed letter claiming that obama's election had "finally leveled the playing field," but i believe he's using that metaphor too literally.

i think it actually means, leveling racial disparities in education, wealth, incarceration rates, healthcare, and political involvement in the united states.

the sharp spikes and peaks along these graphs indicate our history's disparate treatment of minority populations. and as long as they persist, we cannot be said to offer equal opportunity.
