I would like to start a nonprofit with this goal in mind for a number of reasons. Firstly, increase the competition in the labor market by giving all students of color an equal playing field from kindergarten by giving them the same educational resources that are currently available in majority white neighborhood school districts, ie. Potomac, MD or Newport, CA. Secondly, to fight anti-minority media propaganda by giving the majority citizens some real life experiences with people of color.

Also, I'd like to see the baby boomers and generation x's reaction to these people moving into their neighborhoods at high rates while getting the same education as their heirs haha.

How do you feel about this city-data?

Of course minorities are entitled to the same access to education as whites, but *forcing* diversity onto neighborhoods doesn't work. All it does is create tensions, culture shock and in some cases, even causes white flight which almost always has a negative impact on the area. NATURAL diversity can work, where the minorities who do live in the area have earned it by having good careers and college educations...But dumping project residents in an upper middle class area will create disaster.

They should have some kind of program where well-behaved&adequately-performing students from crappy school districts can attend WHATEVER school district they want.

Yeah, I don't think you're being serious.

I assume you're being a bit facetious, but in case you don't know, what you are proposing has already been tried. It was called "forced busing," and it probably contributed more to "white flight" -- wherein cities became less diverse then they used to be -- than almost anything else.

You will sell ocean front property in South Dakota before you'll get that to work. I believe every person should fair access to opportunity both educational and occupational, however forcing diverse neighborhoods will never work. No one wants to say it but most people are most comfortable and want to live mainly around those of the same race. It's not racist, it's how humans are wired. If you force diversity on say an all white area, I hate to say it but most people there originally would likely pack up and move to a new all white area. You would get the same results in any race likely, that's just human nature.

It's not human nature to want to be around those who are the same race as you. Read up on "Beacons Rebellion" and the creation of race. Race is a new phenomenon.

"Baconís Rebellion (1676) in Virginia was the largest uprising in the Thirteen Colonies before the time of the American Revolution a hundred years later. It was a failed attempt to overthrow the rich landowners who ruled Virginia. After the rebellion, the rich maintained their power by dividing the bottom 99% by race. It became the model for US society."

I feel like you're trolling and trying to illicit a reaction out of posters that is anti-minority.

We white folk are trying to do black people a favor. We figure that the mere sight of us might trigger flashbacks to the oppression they used to suffer at our hands; so in order to prevent that from happening, we're trying to stay out of their sight!
