I don't know that it's racism per se, but it's not even "Separate but equal," it's separate and un-equal. You can call it any number of things, but it's an awfully big coincidence that there's a lot of minority students that get shafted in education.
    I knew he was part jewish, you mean he's a white guy?? Well then I'm wrong, the white mayor has been holding back the black children in school. And to think he was one of Obama's right-hand men. A personal friend of the Prez, who must feel really let down. But still if it weren't for the other whites not paying enough taxes, like at least 80% or their income...these black children would be way smarter. Everyone knows that money makes people smarter. Right? And don't tell me it isn't racism, cause that's the only thing it could be. The lack of more money is racism. Tell me I'm wrong.

    No I got it wrong, they got a white mayor so that makes it whitey's fault. I'll bet the whole school board is white too. Bunch of ****ing racists, probably KKK brought up special from Mississippi.

    I've tossed around the idea of doing away with city governments and opting for the local government to be county/parish. That way you can't just have a mass exodus to juuuuuuust outside the city limit and have the county do fine while the city implodes. County borders are pretty much 100% coverage within a state and their local governments would therefore encompass 100% of that state. Not split portions. Then you'd not have duplicate resources like:

    • separate school systems
    • duplicate government officials
    • separate law enforcement (and jurisdictions)
    • separate fire protection (and jurisdictions)


    I'm sure there are loads of other resources that can be added that I'm not mentioning off the top of my head. Cities become county districts... you can still call them cities I suppose but the tax base is the entire county.

    Just something I'm pondering.

    Whaddaya think?

    Maybe he is the Bill Clinton of Chicago. Clinton was our first black president. Wasn't he?

    It's not a question of a lack of resources, or funding, or racism. Or "White Flight", so your plan would accomplish nothing really.

    It's simply an issue of the culture.

    You are actually going to break out the "black culture is inferior" argument? Really?

    Even though clownboy just showed you the how and why of the discrepancies in funding? I suppose the next step for you is to say everyone that doesn't agree with you are the racists.

    Why shouldn't you be allowed to move out of a jurisdiction if you think opportunities for you and your family are better elsewhere?

    I lived in Chicago for years. It's a beautiful city. When I have kids, I'll probably want to move to the suburbs where the schools are better. What's wrong with that?

    I don't see what you are saying. You can still move out of that county and into another if you want to change jurisdictions.

    Well, in Chicago, the suburbs are still in Cook County. In Dallas, where I currently live, the suburbs are still in Dallas County.

    Maybe it's different in Canada, eh?

    I wouldn't want to have to move FURTHER from the city, although I would if it came down to it. Would just burn more hydrocarbons getting to work though.

    3. Most of disruptive, harmful policies enacted by the school board predominantly affect black neighborhoods. It's not a stretch to attribute that to racism.
    So hasn't everything except number one in this post been proven completely wrong. It is NOT mostly rich, white people. It may be rich liberals but not rich white people. If it is not rich white people and it is in fact mostly black people wouldn't the harmful policies enacted in fact not be racism but maybe the liberalism? Why are mostly blacks instituting "harmful policies" for "black neighborhoods"? Is it still racism that they are? Would you agree that using racism here just makes you look like the typical race baiter?
