What’s the purpose?

Lester Mattox brought more blacks into the state government than any governor before him. He believe in separate but equal, but not in putting blacks down.

Interesting fellow for sure.
He also believed that if you put up the capital for a business and took all the risk that you had a right to decide who you your customers were going to be.

I tend to agree with him. No matter who gets offended
 
Back to the original question: How did Jimmy Carter help with this problem?

Let's help the 2nd grader out with a viable answer. Mine would be something along these lines:

"While dressed up in a sweater for a fireside chat, he illegally lowered the speed limits to 55 mph, and and then mis-managed the economy toward 17% interest rates. When that didn't cure the problem, he bounced a few helicopters across the desert at it. Surely that solved the problem of unequal outcomes..." But I'm guessing that's not what the leftist teacher is looking for....

It appears to be more than just that teacher. Here is some type of agenda used in Georgia for teaching that focuses on Jimmy Carter;

Some of the more math savvy kids are doing calculus in the 10th/11th grades nowadays. Way different than 50 years ago, (in the non-metro-ATL parts of GA at least).
I graduated from HS school 50 years ago in a rural Ga. County. Believe it or not we had Calculus classes in the 11th grade.

In 1970 when most Counties were finally integrated Jimmy Carter was barely a blip on anyone's historical radar. I think the answer to why the question was asked has to be found in the context of what lessons the "teacher" had taught. Until you know what answer the teacher expected you can't know the reason for the question.
 
Same here. 12th grade was Trig.
Something I was thinking about was when I had Trig in 1973 or 74, I don't remember using a slide rule. Then in a Navy school I had to use one in 1975. Shortly after that we had to go buy a TI or Radio Shack scientific calculator.

Maybe I used one in High School and just forgot, lol.

I still have my slide rule in a drawer packed away. My TI scientific calculator is long gone. I think I got rid of it when the battery finally died. Maybe with my Tandy model III and Centronics 600 dot matrix printer.
 
His religion as a sham as communist hate Christianity!
Maybe he is a Socialist and not a Communist.

I can't say he was a good politician but I think he was/is a pretty good Christian. He's humble, meek, and clothes Jesus.

If we look beyond the grace and salvation part to the works part, the part where Jesus said "when you fed him, you fed me," I'd say Carter is a better Christian than me in that regards.

LOL, he's a communist all day long.

In 1969 we used a piece of paper and a #2 lead pencil and you had to show your work.:bounce:
