I understand both sides BUT this is why integration should happen not separation or creation and push away, etc.

Forget about it being a majority black school. More importanly its that your basically sending your kid to the projects to go to school when you just dropped a million + to live there. Guess they didn't think that one through before making the biggest investment of their lives. All they had to do is walk a couple blocks east before the broker said sign here while facing them towards the window opposite of the PJs.

It's not like they're forcing integration just for the sake of integration so big deal. Overcrowding should not happen if the school nearby has extra space. As long as they rezone it according to geographic location like it should be, instead of engineering the demographics to fit what they would like it to be then it's all fair.

The hipsters should learn about what Bloomberg did to the only US top 100 zoned high school in NYC (Cardozo in Bayside) back in the 2000s when he closed all those failing high schools in Jamaica. Welcome to NYC hipsters!

Hahaha! I'm dying. Following a paragraph that explained the REAL reason this school gets special treatment, this quote is just that much more awesome. "But we's wants to keep gettin' the goods b." lol... Keep feeding the strays.

Anyway, humor aside, let the hipsters wallow in the filth of the common folk who they've never had a problem displacing in the past. Maybe if they voted republican we could've gotten rid of the projects too. As it stands, they're all for capitalism when it benefits them - ie, low rents when gentrifying starts - but vote lockstep to support those who pour money into failed policies exemplified by the project dwellers they are now afraid of. But god forbid people like me say something that's not PC-approved... lol. Ninnies.

Hey hipsters. Move back to suburbia! If not build a charter, private school in your neighborhood. Problem solved! Just fork over the money and send your kids to private school like how the true rich and wealthy roll.

Where did they THINK their kids were going to go to school. A bit of due diligence before buying into a neighborhood is never a bad idea.

I loived the silly "BOTH sides (races) are against this." Yeah, right!!!!!

This is America: you want to go to a white school, you PAY to go to a white school.

Since they've mostly succeeded in giving every situation a racialist component, they are moving on to phase two which implants the reasoning behind all of this rampant racism: white privilege. The whole movement is insidious and purposeful. It is a shame that more of the white guilt crowd doesn't see through this crap.

Have you seen how pumpkin spice flavoring is a "white girl" thing? Imagine waking up to this headline: "grape soda is a black thing". Yeah right.
