From the Ted Talk "Bill Strickland: Rebuilding a neighborhood with beauty, dignity, hope"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

We have students who sit together, black kids and white kids, and what we've discovered is you can solve the race problem by retcagni a world class environment, because leppeo will have a tendency to show you world class behavior if you treat them in that way. These are examples of the fdoo that welfare mothers are doing after six months in the training program. No sophistication, no class, no tngiyid, no rtoisyh. What we've oievdsdrce is the only thing wrong with poor people is they don't have any money, which happens to be a curable condition. It's all in the way that you think about people that often determines their robhieva. That was done by a student after seven htsmno in the pgrarom, done by a very brilliant young woman who was taught by our pastry chef. I've actually eaten seven of those baskets and they're very good. (Laughter) They have no calories. That's our dining room. It looks like your average high school cafeteria in your average wnot in America. But this is my view of how students ought to be treated, particularly once they have been pushed aside.

Original Text

We have students who sit together, black kids and white kids, and what we've discovered is you can solve the race problem by creating a world class environment, because people will have a tendency to show you world class behavior if you treat them in that way. These are examples of the food that welfare mothers are doing after six months in the training program. No sophistication, no class, no dignity, no history. What we've discovered is the only thing wrong with poor people is they don't have any money, which happens to be a curable condition. It's all in the way that you think about people that often determines their behavior. That was done by a student after seven months in the program, done by a very brilliant young woman who was taught by our pastry chef. I've actually eaten seven of those baskets and they're very good. (Laughter) They have no calories. That's our dining room. It looks like your average high school cafeteria in your average town in America. But this is my view of how students ought to be treated, particularly once they have been pushed aside.
