I can deny it because I'm an ACTUAL African American who's grown up around other economically disadvantaged African Americans who placed a GREAT deal of emphasis on education despite not living in the most desired or affluent areas. Even more, I ended up in an actual college in an athletic conference of like colleges with tens of thousands of African Americans from disadvantaged backgrounds who reached those colleges BECAUSE their families and themselves placed a GREAT emphasis on education.

Contrary to popular belief, we're not a monolithic group who acts, behaves, thinks, and moves the same. There are MANY shades of Black. You should explore them sometime...

NYC has a mix. There are a lot of really bad ones, but there are quite a few really good ones as well. Stuyvesant, Bronx Science, Staten Island Technical, Townsend Harris, you get the idea. Of course, these are all selective in their admissions process. NYC also has a lot of very good private schools too, but that's not the purpose of this thread.
