Let’s get down to business, how do you really feel about forced busing?

Creator

MacNelly, Jeff

Description

Before Richard Nixon's first-ever visit to the Peoples' Republic of China (PRC), he gave some opinions on the very controversial use of busing to end school segregation. Nixon declared his opposition to the idea of busing to integrate school children as it gave the federal government more power over people’s lives. While many Americans agreed with Nixon, his statement was not received well by those who had protested in the civil rights movement. To the annoyance of his administration, the issue followed him on his visit to the communist state. MacNelly contrasts the ideological positions between the two men by inferring that Chairman Mao would approach integrated busing much differently than Nixon.
