Quote from Richard Lamm,

"Let me offer you, metaphorically, two magic wands that have sweeping powers to change society. With one wand you could wipe out all racism and discrimination from the hearts and minds of white America. The other wand you could wave across the ghettos and barrios of America and infuse the inhabitants with Japanese or Jewish values, respect for learning and ambition. ...
"I suggest that the best wand for society and for those who live in the ghettos and barrios would be the second wand."
