For white flight it wasnt for purposes of the education of their children. This article is talking about it being because of education. It is nothing the same, no matter how much you want it to be.
metye7, huh? Who might you be?

No matter how you deny it, what the people doing in the article is black flight. If it quacks... Or to be ungodly PC, "race flight".

In an October 4th Presidential Bulletin, Rev. Miguel Rivera, President of the National Coalition of Latino Clergy and member of President Bush's White House Immigration Reform Coalition, said that within hours a lawsuit to defeat Oklahoma's anti-illegal foreign national law will be filed. He also said the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund will jointly contribute their legal support. In a translated version of the bulletin, Rivera makes the deeply disturbing claim that ethnic cleansing is taking place in Tulsa.
So where was Rev Miguel Rivera to defend Americans of non Hispanic decent who are being displaced by illegal immigrants.

And then HB 1804 passed and 99% of the Illegals fled the state of Oklahoma.

And we lived happily ever after,

Now Oklahomans are fighting for Arizona and the rest of the USA.

This is something, one of the many things, that I have a problem with in regards to illegal immigration. The funny thing is that the President is jumping through hoops just to help illegal immigrants, who are mainly Mexican, while black people gave him the vote. It's a messed up situation and no one is talking about it, well, at least not on a loud enough level. I grew up in a place that saw illegal immigration grow over the last two decades. I was ten years old playing basketball at the park when I first noticed the illegal immigration problem. We'd have Mexicans (no disrespect or no racism, just truth and fact) come in by the tens, playing basketball all day, taking the courts that we used to play on as kids. We had to wait for them and they were undocumented, yes, we knew they were. Then, the neighborhood started changing. They started taking the apartments because no one wanted to live around them and that's just because of a bunch of reasons.

That is one of the many reasons why I am passionate against illegal immigration. I am black and I know that black people haven't even gotten their collective piece of the American Pie. Yes, it is our own doing a lot of times that kept us from getting it, but I'll be damned if I sit back and watch people from another country that doesn't even care about us, come in and take food out of the mouths of my fellow black people. To top it off, Mexicans come here arrogant towards whites and blacks and have no respect. Then, the NAACP or people like Al Sharpton want to march for them and speak for them (and this was way before Arizona's bill). Black people need to start speaking up on this and they will soon see because people start noticing when food is taken off of their table. That is being felt by both black and white people.

I give Adelfa Callejo some credit in what she said about black leadership. However, I got suspicion about the superintendent. Just reading his words made me wonder and wish for the best for the black students there. Hispanic people have pride just like black people and they will take care of their OWN first. With the whole "Hispanic takeover" in their mind, they want to see Hispanics grow here. That's not to say that for ALL Hispanics, but I know way too many Hispanic people personally to know that that is the truth.

It's sad that this country is structured so that the race in majority runs things. But, it is what it is.

Prime example, the inner part of Denver. Anyone that can afford to get out does. What's left are mostly poor Latinos comprised of Illegals and their children. LA, SD and Phoenix all exhibit the same behavior.

The part that really sucks for places like San Diego is the busing from the border. Now everyone gets to feel the pain of ESL students.
