A perfectly practical reaction of any group that is systematically alienated. In the most general sense.

Anything else?
Crenshaw,Dorsey and Westchester are basically the only Los Angeles area schools left that are majority Black. Both Cresnshaw and Dorsey are almost at the half way mark between Black/Hispanic. FYI,the days of majority Black high schools in Los Angeles are over.Not saying that is a bad thing just an observation.

Like WinnieC said, the three high schools in L.A. that are predominately black are Crenshaw, Dorsey and Westchester. Jordan High in Long Beach is at least 50% black too, but other than these 4 I dont think there are anymore.

Sure about Hamilton never being majority black? It sure seemed that way to me in the 80s. Never did go there, though (thank God). I'm pretty sure L.A. High was at least plurality black in the 80s, and maybe Fairfax.

Speaking of Westchester High, last time I was in L.A. I read an article in the Argonaut saying that Westchester's going to become a charter on the model of Palisades.
