You guys can argue about color all day long. I can care less what color kids my kids are going to school with. However, I do fully admit to being a "classist". I don't want my kid going to same school as Farragut PJ kids because they and their parent's most likely do not value education. The government reinforces their dependence on assistance so the have no incentive to better themselves from their never ending cycle of government dependent poverty. There are always exceptions (Ben Carson, Sotamyor, etc. etc.), but you are kidding yourself it you think otherwise.

I want my kids to be competing with other tiger kids of bankers/lawyer/doctors/etc. They can be all black for all I care, but I don't want them to be with low achieving ghetto kids. So I moved the eff out of Dumbo to the burbs. Call me racist all you want, my kids come first.

I'll call u a liberal elitist because that's exactly what they do. Only they keep mouthing off about racial segregation this and that in NYC schools all from the comfort of chappaqua and try to impose their will on the hardworking kids in NYC.

Now you just insulted me. I am a conservative and have never voted for a democrat in my life. You can call me a conservative elitist, I'm fine by that. I don't pretend to be liberal at all. Everyone else in Dumbo are liberal hipocrates. I know from first hand, most are supported by their parents (finance their condos), so its easy to be liberal... but when Aiden has to be with the Farragut kids, they change their tune. I never claimed to be liberal, and since I had to make my own wealth, I am politically conservative.

If its racist to not want your well off children (regardless of color) to attend a low performing school in a low income "ghetto area", then what's it called when a responsible parent of a higher achieving black child who resides in one of these "ghetto areas" wants better for their child and wants them to go a better school in a more affluent area with many white children?

Was just joking lol. I know you're not. But moving from hip areas to Westchester and LI is exactly what all liberal elitisys do once they have kids. Only those hypocrites dare to lecture other people on how to raise their kids and try to push policies that pick winners and losers by the color of their skin.

No they do not. Many stay in the city and many can afford private school right here.

And there are good public schools in NYC and charter schools as well.

And so what? Plenty still do move. You can't make a daft absolute assertion like "no they do not" - that's just contrary to the facts. Yes there are some good schools in NYC, and yes some can afford NYC private tuition. But plenty move to the suburbs when the kids are at elementary age, and just prior to middle school, notwithstanding that.
