One of the chants supposedly is

"we're rich, we're white, we're Westlake"

Well, from what I've seen, it's all true. I used to work for a school w/in the Eanes district and this attitude was pretty prevalent.

But isn’t that kind of the point? Why is it still happening 40 years later?

Hearing it doesn't make it true; however, there are some people that think that way. I have a co-worker who went to school there in the 70s and he said there was quite a mix back then - really affluent people and a number of the 'cedar chopper' demographic.

Everyone should read the book "White Fragility". It is quite eye-opening on how whites unintentionally contribute to racism as a whole. Very enlightening for this white person....

Westlake is the prime example of a white flight suburb that formed in the wake of school integration. A lot of people born on third base think they hit a triple, so of course it’s disproportionately racist.
