LAUSD

I’ve mentioned many times that, in my experience growing up in Los Angeles’s San Fernando Valley in the 1960s and 1970s, white flight from the public schools was pretty much Jewish flight. It can be dated fairly precisely to 1978 to avoid integration due to the mandatory school busing imposed by an ACLU lawsuit on the giant Los Angeles Unified School District.

Why? Back then, Catholics tended to go to Catholic schools, and Protestants lived in independent school districts like Pasadena, San Marino, and in Orange County.

Moreover, San Fernando Valley Jews were highly enthusiastic about public schooling. One of my older memories is hearing from my Jewish teammates on my baseball team at the local park that Catholic schools were kind of un-American. Jews went to public schools to demonstrate their commitment to civic Americanism.

But then, very quickly, they stopped.

Yet that massive historical example that happened 38 years ago at the heart of the world capital of the entertainment industry has largely been lost in the mists of time. Thus, when 27-year-old Atlantic interns denounce all those horrible white people who white flighted away from integrated schools, they tend to picture evil white Southerners who were probably secret Klansmen, meatheaded Catholic ethnics, and snobby WASPs who wouldn’t let their great-grandfathers into their anti-Semitic country clubs, but they don’t picture people much like themselves.

So, I figured I’d better post a rare 21st Century article documenting that I’m not just hallucinating all this history. From the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles seven years ago:

A Brief History of Jews in Public Schools
by Rachel Heller
Posted on Nov. 30, 2009 at 2:01 pm

With the many LAUSD schools having spotty reputations, and given the array of private schools to choose from, Jewish support for Los Angeles public schools in recent years has been at best tepid. But that wasn’t always the case.

Jews in L.A. have had a long and textured relationship with the public education system. From the 1890s, when the city first established elementary and high school districts, through to the 1960s, public education was a mainstay of the Jewish community.

But when school demographics began to shift as working class Latino and African American populations burgeoned, many Jewish families pulled out of public schools and migrated to the private realm.

The Jewish exodus from LAUSD reached its peak during the desegregation movement of the 1970s. After the ACLU filed a lawsuit in 1963 to end segregation in L.A. schools, the LAUSD board created voluntary integration programs, introducing magnet schools and giving district schools the option of busing students from lower-performing facilities to higher performing schools. In 1976, the California Supreme Court charged state school districts with enforcing integration. In response, two years later the L.A. school board began a sweeping mandatory busing program that would reassign more than 60,000 students, transferring minority children from downtown and South L.A. to predominantly white schools in the San Fernando Valley and the Westside, and vice versa.

This was a particularly nuts example of the high tide of liberal social engineering since it involved busing kids from the San Fernando Valley over a mountain range — the Santa Monica Mts. / Hollywood Hills — and down to South-Central L.A.

Students often were bused up to an hour away from where they lived, and the move caused a public outcry among both whites and minorities over what many parents saw as “the end of neighborhood schools,” according to former LAUSD school board member David Tokofsky. Racist and classist prejudices also turned some white families away.

In the first year of forced busing, the district lost 25,000 white students, recalled Shel Erlich, the former longtime head of the LAUSD communications office. In the second year, an additional 17,000 left. In 1981, after only three years, California residents voted down all mandatory busing programs and the plan in Los Angeles was suspended.

But the damage had been done – in the late 1970s, Erlich said, the district was about 30 percent white; now, that number hovers below nine percent.

“[Busing] drove a huge number of Jews from the public schools,” said local author and Jewish Journal columnist Bill Boyarsky. “Parents were not comfortable sending their children to a school where their kid might be the only white person in the class.”

Jewish leaders had taken both sides of the busing debate. Educator Jackie Goldberg, who would later win seats on the Los Angeles City Council and the California State Assembly, headed the controversial Integration Project in the late 1970s that pushed for mandatory busing. Activist and later U.S. Congresswoman Bobbi Fiedler, on the other hand, led the vocal Bustop movement in the Valley that fiercely opposed busing and challenged the program in court.

… Private schools flourished; Jewish day schools proliferated in the 1970s and 80s.

So, I wanted to get this on the record because it’s otherwise disappeared down the Memory Hole.

Thus, when the young lady from The Atlantic reads Matthew Weiner, creator of Mad Men, going on and on in interviews about how he could tell there were anti-Semites lurking everywhere in 1981 at ultra-exclusive Harvard-Westlake in the Hollywood Hills (which was then 40% Jewish), she feels a righteous thrill. Meanwhile, it never occurs to her to wonder why Weiner’s parents were paying for him to attend an exclusive school founded by Episcopalians, when just a few years before they would have thought it right and fitting to utilize Los Angeles’s fine public school system. The young lady from The Atlantic could empathize more with the creator of Mad Men more than she can empathize with the Klansmen, Catholic ignoramuses, and the WASP anti-Semite golfers for whom she blames the failure of school integration, but she’s almost never called upon to wonder why Weiner’s Hancock Park parents put him in private school.

It just doesn’t come up. Why would anybody who is professionally interested in the history of white flight from the public schools ever think about something as obscure as America’s second largest school district, which happens to be in the second most televised place in America?

By the way, one of the funnier interviews with Weiner was conducted by David Samuels, who is now being widely denounced by the members of the Obama Administration media echo chamber for inducing Obama speechwriter Ben Rhodes to spill his guts a little too frankly for the Administration’s good.

But Samuels does this to everybody, especially fellow Jews: he’s supersmart about getting inside his subject’s head and getting him to talk about his motivations that he normally keeps under wraps.

    I grew up with some Jewish guys, some of whose parents took them out of public school and put them into private schools not so much to avoid busing but to Tiger Mom them. I don’t think they ever got over it.

    I also have known a number of whites and blacks who put their kids into Catholic schools just to get a halfway decent education and avoid thug hugs. I don’t know if they were forced to renounce US citizenship (i.e., become RC’s) in order to do this. I became RC because my wife was, my kids went to public schools.

    I wonder how many white people have lost long-term friendships with black people over what I'd call "the interpersonal ferguson effect," which could basically be described as the white guy not buying the old-timey black narrative of victimization.

    I'm white, and I had to cut one loose lately. I got tired of the old-timey neglected negro narrative. He clung to it like a religion, even though he's had a pretty successful life, thanks to white folks, and never lifted a finger to help black folks. He's of the "I got mine, let them get theirs" school of ignoring the people he likes to defend almost unconditionally. His town is all white, as is his significant other, and he loves it. But let him see "12 years a slave" and he turns into Samuel Jackson on a bad day. Just bizarre.

    iSteve both sees and observes. This is an important distinction. It seems the best the MSM can do is to "see through a glass darkly", being left with a hazy and imperfect vision of reality.

    In “A Scandal in Bohemia,” Sherlock Holmes instructs Watson on the difference between seeing and observing: “When I hear you give your reasons,” I remarked, “the thing always appears to me to be so ridiculously simple that I could easily do it myself, though at each successive instance of your reasoning, I am baffled until you explain your process. And yet I believe that my eyes are as good as yours.”

    “Quite so,” he answered, lighting a cigarette, and throwing himself down into an armchair. “You see, but you do not observe. The distinction is clear. For example, you have frequently seen the steps which lead up from the hall to this room.”

    “Frequently.”

    “How often?”

    “Well, some hundreds of times.”

    “Then how many are there?”

    “How many? I don't know.”

    “Quite so! You have not observed. And yet you have seen. That is just my point. Now, I know that there are seventeen steps, because I have both seen and observed ....”

    Well, from tone of his inappropriately bemused reply, we can tell your quite deft insecurity-inducing mindfuck bounced right off him. But, just agreeing fills me with such a wondrous jolt of personal righteousness - and, yes, hair-trigger outrage that goes with it - so I say you're RIGHT. Sailer is just another jealous goy obsessed with everything Jewish, from the wealth and power the 'community' hefts worldwide to that weird, kinda scary hillbilly-shiksa fetish. It colors everything he scrawls.

    Anyway, back to the subject matter, one amazingly finds that in the St. Louis area's heavily black districts where there is also a significant Jewish population, such as St. Louis City or University City, the Jews who live in those districts are the sort that don't have school aged children. Jews themselves sprawled westward generally along Olive, and Jews with school aged kids live in good public districts like Parkway and Rockwood. Then again, the big difference between St. Louis and Los Angeles is that one didn't have to go very far to get to a different school district; the LAUSD, as your linked map shows, covers a hell of a lot of territory, including almost all of the San Fernando Valley. It's far more difficult to get away from it.

    I heard a white guy tell about his experiences with being bused in grade school back in the early 70s. Every year he was sent to a different one, and he always had to deal with being the new kid in class, the outsider. Every year he was torn away from the few friends he’d made the previous year. He soon quit making friends at all because he figured out he’d never be allowed to keep them.

    It was the sort of environment where a blazing extrovert might have thrived, but he wasn’t an extrovert, and he says he found it traumatic. He wanted stability, not to be someone else’s social experiment. He said he doubted he added much of any value to the lives of the black kids whose schools he was sent to, and the busing didn’t do him any good, either.

    That's a very sad story. For $50 I'll write the screenplay and we can shop it to Hollywood. From experience though I doubt they'll be interested.

    The better Screenplay would be the story of a disadvantaged minority, say a black kid, who was uplifted by a magnanimous benefactor, say a Jew, who took it upon himself to fight the good fight against WASPy gentiles who stood in the way of this good looking, gifted disadvantaged minority kid.

    At this point in story developent we should take a look at casting. I have Dustin Hoffman in mind for the beneficient Yidden and Denzel Washington for the disadvantaged minority boy's father.

    Let's put the backdrop as contemporary Fergusson Mo or a fictionalized variant. We'll have a NYT reporter covering the unrest and assuredly signaling virtue to the utmost. This is the angle we'll use: the story will be told amidst the chaos of BLM with a Charles Blow-type homosexual NYT reporter narrating the unfolding drama.

    I work cheap, contact me for the screenplay, I can have it done tonight. We'll make millions.

    When you realize that we who were forcibly bused in that era were the subject of a social experiment not on how to improve black kids' lives (as claimed), but how to destroy the fabric of white communities families, the entire phenomenon becomes more comprehensible.

    No. Roosevelt is, and has been since the late 1960s, a totally black town on Long Island. Stern only spent a year at Roosevelt High School. His family moved to the neighboring (and very well to do) town of Rockville Center, where he graduated from the overwhelmingly white Southside High School. Long Island schools and towns are very segregated. Any Long Island town that is integrated is in process of transitioning from all white to latino/black.
    , @Clifford Brown
    No, I said the only "Jewish" kid because the article was about Jews in public schools that were demographically changing, but Howard described himself as the one of few White kids at Roosevelt High School. If you listen to the clip, an Italian-American alumnus calls into the show and discusses his experience at the high school. The other student apparently had a slightly better experience because he was physically intimidating while Howard was a total dork.
  22. I think anyone who thinks White America is going to wake up and fight back, should take a long look at Busing in the 1970s and 1980s.

    Almost no one ever voted for Busing. It was imposed on people by the courts and the bureaucracy. The Civil rights bill was supposed to ban government mandated segregation, not require Government enforced desegregation across entire school districts.

    Reagan campaigned against it, but the republicans would never pass a bill against it. Howard Metzenbaum would get up and say “I’ll filibuster any anti-busing bill” and the Senator majority leader Dole/Baker would go “sorry, we just can’t pass a bill”. And that was that.

    And people just took it. Most of them, instead of getting mad and fighting, just ran away. Or as Steve wrote put their kids in private school. In effect paying for their kids education twice, once thru taxes, then thru private school fees.

    And this was in the 1970s-1980s when supposedly the country was more “racist” and “right-wing”.

    I heard a white guy tell about his experiences with being bused in grade school back in the early 70s. Every year he was sent to a different one, and he always had to deal with being the new kid in class, the outsider. Every year he was torn away from the few friends he'd made the previous year. He soon quit making friends at all because he figured out he'd never be allowed to keep them.

    It was the sort of environment where a blazing extrovert might have thrived, but he wasn't an extrovert, and he says he found it traumatic. He wanted stability, not to be someone else's social experiment. He said he doubted he added much of any value to the lives of the black kids whose schools he was sent to, and the busing didn't do him any good, either.

    That’s a very sad story. For $50 I’ll write the screenplay and we can shop it to Hollywood. From experience though I doubt they’ll be interested.

    The better Screenplay would be the story of a disadvantaged minority, say a black kid, who was uplifted by a magnanimous benefactor, say a Jew, who took it upon himself to fight the good fight against WASPy gentiles who stood in the way of this good looking, gifted disadvantaged minority kid.

    At this point in story developent we should take a look at casting. I have Dustin Hoffman in mind for the beneficient Yidden and Denzel Washington for the disadvantaged minority boy’s father.

    Let’s put the backdrop as contemporary Fergusson Mo or a fictionalized variant. We’ll have a NYT reporter covering the unrest and assuredly signaling virtue to the utmost. This is the angle we’ll use: the story will be told amidst the chaos of BLM with a Charles Blow-type homosexual NYT reporter narrating the unfolding drama.

    As I noted, the entire point of busing wasn't "racial equality." It was to deploy political means to destroy white communities and (heterosexual, male-centered) families. The latter obviously involved removing the locus of familial authority from the male and the home to the state and its female lesbian autocrats. A process that continues, on steroids, to this day.

    No. Roosevelt is, and has been since the late 1960s, a totally black town on Long Island. Stern only spent a year at Roosevelt High School. His family moved to the neighboring (and very well to do) town of Rockville Center, where he graduated from the overwhelmingly white Southside High School. Long Island schools and towns are very segregated. Any Long Island town that is integrated is in process of transitioning from all white to latino/black.

    No, I said the only “Jewish” kid because the article was about Jews in public schools that were demographically changing, but Howard described himself as the one of few White kids at Roosevelt High School. If you listen to the clip, an Italian-American alumnus calls into the show and discusses his experience at the high school.

    A 55 year old NAM man who has no kids would most likely be accused of being a Homosexual in his community.

They don't have to take care of them and be there for the child, but they at least have to create them.

    There are two types of pro-black black men. The first is like your friend who wants easy access to non-black women. It is also eases his conscious about fleeing the black world since he can be down with the cause without having to actually interact with black people. These would be like some of the athletes who spoke out against Donald Sterling. Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Elgin Baylor are two examples. Didn't Clarence Thomas say something about a lynching during his confirmation hearing?

    The second type of pro-black black man is willing to have sex with as many black women as possible. He also gains money and power from manipulating blacks and/or whites. Jesse Jackson and his multiple mistresses is a good example or bratty Cornel West with his multiple wives. There are more on the grassroots level but they wouldn't be familiar to most on this forum.

    Former NBA player and Sacramento mayor, Kevin Johnson, falls into both camps. He is married to Michelle Rhee. He loves molesting and sexually harassing girls and women, not sure of the racial makeup. He started a charter school that he used to misappropriate funds and sexually harass more girls and female teachers. He got himself elected president of the National Council of Black Mayors, told the sponsors to stop funding the group, and filed chapter 7 bankruptcy. A week after stepping down as president of the defunct group, Johnson formed the African American Mayors Association. He also spoke out against Donald Sterling.

    I follow a black businesswoman on Twitter who is married to a black engineer and they live in black Prince George's county. She is looking for a private school because the neighborhood school is rated F. She even admitted that she was wrong about blacks having their own successful school system, yet she constantly tweets about white privilege.

    Anyway, back to the subject matter, one amazingly finds that in the St. Louis area's heavily black districts where there is also a significant Jewish population, such as St. Louis City or University City, the Jews who live in those districts are the sort that don't have school aged children. Jews themselves sprawled westward generally along Olive, and Jews with school aged kids live in good public districts like Parkway and Rockwood. Then again, the big difference between St. Louis and Los Angeles is that one didn't have to go very far to get to a different school district; the LAUSD, as your linked map shows, covers a hell of a lot of territory, including almost all of the San Fernando Valley. It's far more difficult to get away from it.

Berkeley is actually part of the Ferguson-Florissant district; several decades ago, the Federal courts ordered F-F to consume the former Berkeley standalone district for "racial balance" purposes.

    Washington University's main campus is in University City, its dorms are in Clayton. A big chunk of WU professors live in Clayton, ergo the Clayton district, and Clayton is where a disproportionate percentage of the region's physician specialists live. So, of course the Clayton district is going to be great, duh, because the kids of professors and physician specialists go there. Incidentally, I very recently moved to Richmond Heights, directly south of Clayton, and it is pretty close to WU. Yet, my rent is pretty affordable. Why? Because people buy and rent not necessarily because they're buying a house or a neighborhood, but they're buying a peer group and classmates for their kids. Richmond Heights is not in the Clayton district, it's in a district that combos with one suburb south, Maplewood, and Maplewood is majority black and the rest lower class white. This same square footage, if I lived north of Clayton Road, the rent would be just about double.

    I'm very curious as to:

    1) the ratio of the % non-Asian minority students in the schools Matt Yglesias' kid attends to the % NAM population of D.C. as a whole.

    2) Matt Yglesias' stated views on racial integration in the education system.

    It's funny how few liberals have enough of the courage of their convictions to do all this "desegregation" of neighborhoods and schools themselves. That's for other people to do, apparently, not them personally.

    Matt has a wife & while I’m sure she supports her husband’s views and work, after all he derives a significant income from it, I suspect she draws the line at using their kid(s) as social Guinea pigs.

    Besides she’s the one that will have to defend their school choice to the other yuppie moms.

    I happened to catch this item while this comment thread is fresh, so I'll go ahead and play Nostradamus: the word "obsessed" will be used a lot. It will be used by people indignantly demanding why Steve Sailer is "obsessed" with certain things. There will also be nasty speculations about jealousy.

    Still, these posts by Steve are worthwhile. They just might help remind people in the megaphone media that this is a two-way conversation now and they might want to dial down their gas-lighting game. Fifty years of unrelenting guilt-tripping and taunting can get on the collective nerves of others.

    iSteve both sees and observes. This is an important distinction. It seems the best the MSM can do is to “see through a glass darkly”, being left with a hazy and imperfect vision of reality.

    In “A Scandal in Bohemia,” Sherlock Holmes instructs Watson on the difference between seeing and observing: “When I hear you give your reasons,” I remarked, “the thing always appears to me to be so ridiculously simple that I could easily do it myself, though at each successive instance of your reasoning, I am baffled until you explain your process. And yet I believe that my eyes are as good as yours.”

    “Quite so,” he answered, lighting a cigarette, and throwing himself down into an armchair. “You see, but you do not observe. The distinction is clear. For example, you have frequently seen the steps which lead up from the hall to this room.”

    “Frequently.”

    “How often?”

    “Well, some hundreds of times.”

    “Then how many are there?”

    “How many? I don’t know.”

    “Quite so! You have not observed. And yet you have seen. That is just my point. Now, I know that there are seventeen steps, because I have both seen and observed ….”

    Sure, the difference in magic dirt between "good" high schools and "bad" high schools is also a lot higher than the comparable difference between middle schools.

    It seems like NYC/SF/DC lefty pundits are both very young and not very interested in having children, so unfortunately we won't get to see whether they're "do as I say, not as I do" on school integration for some time. (Though I know which way I'd bet.)

    “unfortunately we won’t get to see whether they’re “do as I say, not as I do” on school integration for some time.”

    In some cases we will never get to see. George Clooney for example is 55 years old and he still has no kids. That’s such a SWPL thing.

    A 55 year old NAM man who has no kids would most likely be accused of being a Homosexual in his community. NAM men come from cultures where they are encouraged to produce at least one off spring before they die. They don’t have to take care of them and be there for the child, but they at least have to create them.

    In the White community a White man can be 55 years old, have no kids, and never have his Heterosexuality questioned by other White people.

    Robert Weissberg nails it:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhvQ-5DacsI

    If you looked around our cultural landscape and tried to find two groups with different values that venerate different things, who worship at different altars, it is hard to find two groups more different than blacks and Jews. Jews are obsessed with education, blacks destroy it. If you’ve gone to school in the inner city, you know that not only do they hate the idea of learning, but they assault their teachers and physically destroy their schools.

    When blacks move into a neighborhood, the first people out are Jews. Jews did not invent white flight but we perfected it. As far as intermarriage and social exchange, there’s almost zero. They just don’t mix. Jews are not into crime. The sorts of things that blacks specialize in — muggings, assaults, rapes — are not a Jewish predilection.

    How Jews really relate to blacks is something Jews hardly talked about except when they are amongst themselves. When Jews get together in a safe place and talk about blacks, they will use the term “schvartze.” When you go to Leo Rosten’s Joys of Yiddish, he’s very careful in what he says. With “schvartze”, he becomes tight-lipped. “A black person, a negro.” That does not begin to depict what the term means among Jews. There may be a degree of affection, as in, ‘I hear Mrs. Schwartz got a new schvartze.’

    It is not necessarily a negative word. It’s not the same thing as nigger. If you inserted the word ‘nigger’ to achieve some lexiconic variety, Jews would be genuinely offended. There can even be a degree of affection in schvartze. As in, ‘Ahh, I heard Mrs. Schwartz got a new schvartze. Oh, how nice.’”

    When you use the term ‘schvartze’, it always implies cognitive inferiority. The mental picture of a stupid black embedded in the term schvartze is true even with pro-civil rights [liberal] Jews… Adding the phrase ‘dumb schvartze’ is superflous, reserved only used for the most egregious stupidity. Invisible baggage likewise includes gullibility, emotional excitability, and a weakness for here-and-now conspicuous consumption. Violence, especially inter-personal, alcohol-induced mayhem, is also associated with schvartze. The image that comes to the mind with Jews when you say ‘schvartze’ is simple-minded, impulsive, easily seduced by trinkets. This is extremely close to the traditional Southern image of blacks, almost identical to what many Southerners would privately say about blacks… This is continually reinforced by daily experience, such as in integrated public schools.

    We had a procession of cleaning ladies [in New York]. Growing up, I honestly believed that all black people come from a thing called The Agency. We’d hire black cleaning ladies and invariably they’d steal and drink the liquor and my mother would come back and say, ‘I’m calling up The Agency and getting another.’ Very few Jews of my generation had any other contact. We had a procession of handymen and cleaning people come to my house.

    It was always believed that any Jew can ultimately out-smart any schvartze except save being confronted by a demented gunman. Despite immense cultural chasms, Jews held themselves as innately capable of finessing blacks thanks to their superior wits, verbal talent, and a mastery of black psychology. The unmatched success of Jewish ghetto merchants and Jewish civil rights leadership positions proclaim this truth. Even today Jews may secretly brag about their success in beguiling blacks in contentious interpersonal relationships. People sometimes ask me, ‘What did you do when they showed up as a demonstration to your office?’ This happened to me one time. A bunch of angry young blacks came to my office… I said, ‘I just relied on the wisdom of my ancestors. I gave them a little rope-a-dope. I moved around. I said this, I said that. Within half an hour, they were fine. I sold one a suit and several new jewelry and they were happy. They got a deal from Mr. Weissberg.’

    Where personal manipulation might fail, the storehouse of survival tactics sufficed exceedingly well. Black pathologies were bearable, especially since most black mayhem was self-inflicted. Jews might even profit from these disorders as merchants or nanny state therapists. Threatened Jews can flee deteriorating neighborhoods, enroll their children in private schools, hire security guards, co-opt black leaders financially, or otherwise escape.

    Jews see no conflict between righteously defending black criminals as political prisoners and living in fortress-style buildings.

    On the one hand, Jews dread blacks physically. When Jews see blacks walking down the street, they feel tremendous fear. Yet they dutifully pay the danegeld (extortion money).

    For most Jews, it is the white goyim who pose the most threat. Contrary fact-based argument fall on deaf ears. Like the schvartzes, the Chinese [and Japanese] are never called goyim.

    Blacks are incapable of such well-organized horror [as the Holocaust] unless directed by nefarious whites… A full-scale pogrom is beyond their capacity. Can you imagine blacks systemically rounding up thousands of Jews or even keeping tabs on Jewish neighborhoods? Assess enemies by capabilities, not intentions… The schvartze pose minimal risk. They’re too stupid.

    I'd take issue with your statement that blacks and Asians are never called "goyim." I'm younger than you and come from a secular flyover country Jewish background where no one actually speaks Yiddish. However, generally older people do occasionally add Yiddish words to their speech, and in my experience, they do refer to blacks and Asians as "goyim." Blacks just happen to be the most frequent subgroup of "goyim" to be singled out and specified. As for the minimal risk that blacks pose, they did manage to burn and loot some of my relatives' businesses during the 1960's riots. So I guess that I see things differently. White gentiles may be able to destroy Jews, but they also create functional societies. Blacks can destroy Jews on a smaller scale and create dystopias.

    It would probably make sense for me to be obsessed about Ferguson. Even though it has been a very long time since I have driven through or been to the area that I now refer to as the Fergaza Strip, and I have no need to do so and certainly don't want to do so for grins and giggles.

    Anyway, back to the subject matter, one amazingly finds that in the St. Louis area's heavily black districts where there is also a significant Jewish population, such as St. Louis City or University City, the Jews who live in those districts are the sort that don't have school aged children. Jews themselves sprawled westward generally along Olive, and Jews with school aged kids live in good public districts like Parkway and Rockwood. Then again, the big difference between St. Louis and Los Angeles is that one didn't have to go very far to get to a different school district; the LAUSD, as your linked map shows, covers a hell of a lot of territory, including almost all of the San Fernando Valley. It's far more difficult to get away from it.

    Apparently in St. Louis the high school you attend is very important. Here is a humorous (I guess) flowchart to help pick the most suitable school.

    That's a very sad story. For $50 I'll write the screenplay and we can shop it to Hollywood. From experience though I doubt they'll be interested.

    The better Screenplay would be the story of a disadvantaged minority, say a black kid, who was uplifted by a magnanimous benefactor, say a Jew, who took it upon himself to fight the good fight against WASPy gentiles who stood in the way of this good looking, gifted disadvantaged minority kid.

    At this point in story developent we should take a look at casting. I have Dustin Hoffman in mind for the beneficient Yidden and Denzel Washington for the disadvantaged minority boy's father.

    Let's put the backdrop as contemporary Fergusson Mo or a fictionalized variant. We'll have a NYT reporter covering the unrest and assuredly signaling virtue to the utmost. This is the angle we'll use: the story will be told amidst the chaos of BLM with a Charles Blow-type homosexual NYT reporter narrating the unfolding drama.

    I work cheap, contact me for the screenplay, I can have it done tonight. We'll make millions.

    In Yiddish .Yidden is plural, Yid is singular. But more importantly the putative denzel role is reserved by Hollywood law for Morgan Freeman. If he has to be the grandfather rather than the father for plausibility reasons(hah!) so be it.

    No. Roosevelt is, and has been since the late 1960s, a totally black town on Long Island. Stern only spent a year at Roosevelt High School. His family moved to the neighboring (and very well to do) town of Rockville Center, where he graduated from the overwhelmingly white Southside High School. Long Island schools and towns are very segregated. Any Long Island town that is integrated is in process of transitioning from all white to latino/black.

    I think University City school district (next to Washington U. of St. Louis) was in the top ten for biggest white-black test score gap -- the list led by Berkeley.

    I’m surprised there were enough whites in the U-City district to test to have a valid group average. Berkeley is actually part of the Ferguson-Florissant district; several decades ago, the Federal courts ordered F-F to consume the former Berkeley standalone district for “racial balance” purposes.

    Washington University’s main campus is in University City, its dorms are in Clayton. A big chunk of WU professors live in Clayton, ergo the Clayton district, and Clayton is where a disproportionate percentage of the region’s physician specialists live. So, of course the Clayton district is going to be great, duh, because the kids of professors and physician specialists go there. Incidentally, I very recently moved to Richmond Heights, directly south of Clayton, and it is pretty close to WU. Yet, my rent is pretty affordable. Why? Because people buy and rent not necessarily because they’re buying a house or a neighborhood, but they’re buying a peer group and classmates for their kids. Richmond Heights is not in the Clayton district, it’s in a district that combos with one suburb south, Maplewood, and Maplewood is majority black and the rest lower class white. This same square footage, if I lived north of Clayton Road, the rent would be just about double.

    There are two types of pro-black black men. The first is like your friend who wants easy access to non-black women. It is also eases his conscious about fleeing the black world since he can be down with the cause without having to actually interact with black people. These would be like some of the athletes who spoke out against Donald Sterling. Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Elgin Baylor are two examples. Didn’t Clarence Thomas say something about a lynching during his confirmation hearing?

    The second type of pro-black black man is willing to have sex with as many black women as possible. He also gains money and power from manipulating blacks and/or whites. Jesse Jackson and his multiple mistresses is a good example or bratty Cornel West with his multiple wives. There are more on the grassroots level but they wouldn’t be familiar to most on this forum.

    Former NBA player and Sacramento mayor, Kevin Johnson, falls into both camps. He is married to Michelle Rhee. He loves molesting and sexually harassing girls and women, not sure of the racial makeup. He started a charter school that he used to misappropriate funds and sexually harass more girls and female teachers. He got himself elected president of the National Council of Black Mayors, told the sponsors to stop funding the group, and filed chapter 7 bankruptcy. A week after stepping down as president of the defunct group, Johnson formed the African American Mayors Association. He also spoke out against Donald Sterling.

    I follow a black businesswoman on Twitter who is married to a black engineer and they live in black Prince George’s county.

    That's a very sad story. For $50 I'll write the screenplay and we can shop it to Hollywood. From experience though I doubt they'll be interested.

    The better Screenplay would be the story of a disadvantaged minority, say a black kid, who was uplifted by a magnanimous benefactor, say a Jew, who took it upon himself to fight the good fight against WASPy gentiles who stood in the way of this good looking, gifted disadvantaged minority kid.

    At this point in story developent we should take a look at casting. I have Dustin Hoffman in mind for the beneficient Yidden and Denzel Washington for the disadvantaged minority boy's father.

    Let's put the backdrop as contemporary Fergusson Mo or a fictionalized variant. We'll have a NYT reporter covering the unrest and assuredly signaling virtue to the utmost. This is the angle we'll use: the story will be told amidst the chaos of BLM with a Charles Blow-type homosexual NYT reporter narrating the unfolding drama.

    I work cheap, contact me for the screenplay, I can have it done tonight. We'll make millions.

    Sounds like Denzel’s “John Q.” From IMDB: John Quincy Archibald takes a hospital emergency room hostage when his insurance won’t cover his son’s heart transplant.

    "unfortunately we won’t get to see whether they’re “do as I say, not as I do” on school integration for some time."

    In some cases we will never get to see. George Clooney for example is 55 years old and he still has no kids. That's such a SWPL thing.

    A 55 year old NAM man who has no kids would most likely be accused of being a Homosexual in his community. NAM men come from cultures where they are encouraged to produce at least one off spring before they die. They don't have to take care of them and be there for the child, but they at least have to create them.

    In the White community a White man can be 55 years old, have no kids, and never have his Heterosexuality questioned by other White people.

    They’ll ask questions. Clooney is a movie star and we can fairly assume he hasn’t had kids because he wants to mess around until he dies. He can do that at 55 because he has very high status (movie star) and looks like George Clooney.

    I heard a white guy tell about his experiences with being bused in grade school back in the early 70s. Every year he was sent to a different one, and he always had to deal with being the new kid in class, the outsider. Every year he was torn away from the few friends he'd made the previous year. He soon quit making friends at all because he figured out he'd never be allowed to keep them.

    It was the sort of environment where a blazing extrovert might have thrived, but he wasn't an extrovert, and he says he found it traumatic. He wanted stability, not to be someone else's social experiment. He said he doubted he added much of any value to the lives of the black kids whose schools he was sent to, and the busing didn't do him any good, either.

    When you realize that we who were forcibly bused in that era were the subject of a social experiment not on how to improve black kids’ lives (as claimed), but how to destroy the fabric of white communities families, the entire phenomenon becomes more comprehensible.

    I think anyone who thinks White America is going to wake up and fight back, should take a long look at Busing in the 1970s and 1980s.

    Almost no one ever voted for Busing. It was imposed on people by the courts and the bureaucracy. The Civil rights bill was supposed to ban government mandated segregation, not require Government enforced desegregation across entire school districts.

    Reagan campaigned against it, but the republicans would never pass a bill against it. Howard Metzenbaum would get up and say "I'll filibuster any anti-busing bill" and the Senator majority leader Dole/Baker would go "sorry, we just can't pass a bill". And that was that.

    And people just took it. Most of them, instead of getting mad and fighting, just ran away. Or as Steve wrote put their kids in private school. In effect paying for their kids education twice, once thru taxes, then thru private school fees.

    And this was in the 1970s-1980s when supposedly the country was more "racist" and "right-wing".

    >>>Jewish leaders had taken both sides of the busing debate. Educator Jackie Goldberg, who would later win seats on the Los Angeles City Council and the California State Assembly, headed the controversial Integration Project in the late 1970s that pushed for mandatory busing.

    From Wikipedia: "Goldberg is openly lesbian[1] and was a founder member of the California Legislative LGBT Caucus. She is one of three openly gay and Jewish members with Carol Migden, and Mark Leno."

    Not surprised. Radical, Jewish, lesbian with no skin in the game heads the "controversial" project.

    As I noted, the entire point of busing wasn’t “racial equality.” It was to deploy political means to destroy white communities and (heterosexual, male-centered) families. The latter obviously involved removing the locus of familial authority from the male and the home to the state and its female lesbian autocrats. A process that continues, on steroids, to this day.

    If evil Klansmen are White flighting out of racially integrated schools, that's a good thing. Why would The Atlantic want to put Black kids in extreme danger by having them in the same classrooms as the KKK, who would most likely hang and murder all of their Black classmates. Does the Atlantic not believe that Black lives matter?

    Wyandanch is another Black ghetto on Long Island. 100% Black, surrounded by white communities. For decades we heard stories in the press about the infamous “Corner” in Wynandanch, which is, well, a corner of two thoroughfares where all sorts of mischief and mayhem played out: drug dealing, loitering, prostitution, beatings, stabbings, shootings and murder.

    If you looked around our cultural landscape and tried to find two groups with different values that venerate different things, who worship at different altars, it is hard to find two groups more different than blacks and Jews. Jews are obsessed with education, blacks destroy it. If you’ve gone to school in the inner city, you know that not only do they hate the idea of learning, but they assault their teachers and physically destroy their schools.

    When blacks move into a neighborhood, the first people out are Jews. Jews did not invent white flight but we perfected it. As far as intermarriage and social exchange, there’s almost zero. They just don’t mix. Jews are not into crime. The sorts of things that blacks specialize in — muggings, assaults, rapes — are not a Jewish predilection.

    How Jews really relate to blacks is something Jews hardly talked about except when they are amongst themselves. When Jews get together in a safe place and talk about blacks, they will use the term “schvartze.” When you go to Leo Rosten’s Joys of Yiddish, he’s very careful in what he says. With “schvartze”, he becomes tight-lipped. “A black person, a negro.” That does not begin to depict what the term means among Jews. There may be a degree of affection, as in, ‘I hear Mrs. Schwartz got a new schvartze.’

    It is not necessarily a negative word. It’s not the same thing as nigger. If you inserted the word ‘nigger’ to achieve some lexiconic variety, Jews would be genuinely offended. There can even be a degree of affection in schvartze. As in, ‘Ahh, I heard Mrs. Schwartz got a new schvartze. Oh, how nice.'”

    When you use the term ‘schvartze’, it always implies cognitive inferiority. The mental picture of a stupid black embedded in the term schvartze is true even with pro-civil rights [liberal] Jews… Adding the phrase ‘dumb schvartze’ is superflous, reserved only used for the most egregious stupidity. Invisible baggage likewise includes gullibility, emotional excitability, and a weakness for here-and-now conspicuous consumption. Violence, especially inter-personal, alcohol-induced mayhem, is also associated with schvartze. The image that comes to the mind with Jews when you say ‘schvartze’ is simple-minded, impulsive, easily seduced by trinkets. This is extremely close to the traditional Southern image of blacks, almost identical to what many Southerners would privately say about blacks… This is continually reinforced by daily experience, such as in integrated public schools.

    We had a procession of cleaning ladies [in New York]. Growing up, I honestly believed that all black people come from a thing called The Agency. We’d hire black cleaning ladies and invariably they’d steal and drink the liquor and my mother would come back and say, ‘I’m calling up The Agency and getting another.’ Very few Jews of my generation had any other contact. We had a procession of handymen and cleaning people come to my house.

    It was always believed that any Jew can ultimately out-smart any schvartze except save being confronted by a demented gunman. Despite immense cultural chasms, Jews held themselves as innately capable of finessing blacks thanks to their superior wits, verbal talent, and a mastery of black psychology. The unmatched success of Jewish ghetto merchants and Jewish civil rights leadership positions proclaim this truth. Even today Jews may secretly brag about their success in beguiling blacks in contentious interpersonal relationships. People sometimes ask me, ‘What did you do when they showed up as a demonstration to your office?’ This happened to me one time. A bunch of angry young blacks came to my office… I said, ‘I just relied on the wisdom of my ancestors. I gave them a little rope-a-dope. I moved around. I said this, I said that. Within half an hour, they were fine. I sold one a suit and several new jewelry and they were happy. They got a deal from Mr. Weissberg.’

    Where personal manipulation might fail, the storehouse of survival tactics sufficed exceedingly well. Black pathologies were bearable, especially since most black mayhem was self-inflicted. Jews might even profit from these disorders as merchants or nanny state therapists. Threatened Jews can flee deteriorating neighborhoods, enroll their children in private schools, hire security guards, co-opt black leaders financially, or otherwise escape.

    Jews see no conflict between righteously defending black criminals as political prisoners and living in fortress-style buildings.

    On the one hand, Jews dread blacks physically. When Jews see blacks walking down the street, they feel tremendous fear. Yet they dutifully pay the danegeld (extortion money).

    For most Jews, it is the white goyim who pose the most threat. Contrary fact-based argument fall on deaf ears. Like the schvartzes, the Chinese [and Japanese] are never called goyim.

    Blacks are incapable of such well-organized horror [as the Holocaust] unless directed by nefarious whites… A full-scale pogrom is beyond their capacity. Can you imagine blacks systemically rounding up thousands of Jews or even keeping tabs on Jewish neighborhoods? Assess enemies by capabilities, not intentions… The schvartze pose minimal risk. They’re too stupid.

    I’d take issue with your statement that blacks and Asians are never called “goyim.” I’m younger than you and come from a secular flyover country Jewish background where no one actually speaks Yiddish. However, generally older people do occasionally add Yiddish words to their speech, and in my experience, they do refer to blacks and Asians as “goyim.” Blacks just happen to be the most frequent subgroup of “goyim” to be singled out and specified. As for the minimal risk that blacks pose, they did manage to burn and loot some of my relatives’ businesses during the 1960′s riots. So I guess that I see things differently. White gentiles may be able to destroy Jews, but they also create functional societies. Blacks can destroy Jews on a smaller scale and create dystopias.

  110. The forced integration of schools nationwide was the result of court cases initiated by the American Civil Liberties Union ACLU) which had been under Jewish control since its original gentile founders (Roger Baldwin et.al.) had been purged for opposition to the growing influence of the Communist Party in the organization in the early 1940s.. What occurred in San Francisco in particular during this era of busing is both curious and illustrative . The Jews who pushed for integration through groups like the ACLU must have somehow thought (or known) that they would be excluded from it once it came into effect.

    San Francisco, up to the period of this busing, had had three academic high schools: Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Lowell. For decades all of these three schools had produced thousands students who were accepted at all sorts of high level universities including places like the Ivy leagues and Stanford. Lowell, one of the three high schools, was a magnet for one particular type of student , Jewish. It was so heavily Jewish that I know of someone who transferred out of Lowell to Lincoln High School in the late 1950s specifically because he claimed that his social life was being curtailed the many Jewish girls there wouldn’t date gentile males. (Interestingly the Jewish males were able to date the much more accepting protestant girls. ) Lowell was in effect a defacto Jewish public high school with large percentages of both Jewish students and teachers.

    When busing came around a curious thing happened, It was suddenly decided without any public input that Lowell would henceforth be considered the primary high school for college bound students in the city with strict admission criteria to be instituted while Washington and Lincoln were left to accept the bused students and then be left essentially to their own devices (i.e neglected). In the following years both Lincoln and Washington ended up essentially falling apart academically and becoming more and more violent , disrupted, and ghetto like. Lincoln in particular suffered the most from this neglect. I remember seeing police cars almost constantly were circling it during school hours during this period.

    This situation continued for several decades before Jews in particular started to feel the pinch of competition from an increasing number of even more academically motivated Chinese. This resulted in an increasing number of Jews who were no longer able to get into Lowell and whose parents then had to choose between the problem ridden Washington or Lincoln high schools or MUCH much more expensive private schools or (gasp) strict Catholic high schools. The recently arrived Russian Jewish emigres in particular were in a quandary because they were simply unable to pay these private school fees. What to do?

    It was only then when a move was made to clean up both Lincoln and Washington High Schools.. This was done by, among other things, instituting far more advanced placement classes there, taught by much better teachers,transferring the worst of the teachers and large scale booting out the worst of the trouble makers by pushing them into the newly set up, so called “charter schools” ( the worst of which are essentially nothing more than crypto reform schools with just as active a police presence.) Lincoln and Washington have apparently finally got their full maintenance budget restored as well. So much for integration. Things have improved greatly since then but Lincoln is particular has never really overcome the problems of the past because the Chinese still hold it in such low repute because of it (very) violent past.

    At the same time as the aforementioned changes in the high schools occurred another interesting event happened. With Jewish parents in the main leadership roles, the toniest neighborhood of San Francisco, Pacific Heights, tried to preserve its local public elementary school, Ulysses Grant, from busing. What was interesting was that many of these these very same, very liberal Jewish parents had been among the main financial backers of the ACLU which had pushed busing in the first place. Somehow these Jews thought they they would be spared its effects of integration while only the gentile lumpen proletariat would experience it. What hypocrisy.! These parents tried to prevent the busing of their children by using their considerable financial and political muscle and access to the best legal representation. The ultra liberal San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD). tolerated these uppity white folks for a while but then became irritated. A solution was needed.

    The school district suddenly decided to bulldoze down the up-to-now beautifully maintained and stately Grant School. It was did it quickly and thoroughly leaving only a totally vacant lot after the bulldozers left. Not even the smallest remnant of a foundation remained. End of problem. The Pacific Heights students now had no choice but to go to another (thoroughly integrated) public school, right! Not quite. Virtually all of these now school-less students were transferred just as as rapidly to private or Catholic schools. Since then, the wealthiest parents in the city no longer had any vested interest in public school their interest in funding them with additional tax increases suddenly waned significantly. They still don’t send their children to public schools. Just like NYC.

    Interesting note: I was driving around provincial France in the early 1980s in a rental car while staying in youth hostels and camping. In a small, remote french village I decided to camp in the local campground. The french girl behind the counter at the office counter there spoke to me in very good idiomatic English.I asked her how she had learned such good English. She replied that she had been an exchange student in the United States the previous year.. I asked her where and she replied “San Francisco.” I then asked her what high school she had attended. She replied “Abraham Lincoln.” I asked her what she thought of Abraham Lincoln High School. She summed up her opinion in just four words, “It was very violent.” Nothing else was added. This was the most lasting impression she had about an American school.

    That was an interesting read. In 1983, after years of complaints from the NAACP, the San Francisco school district agreed to a consent decree that would limit each racial group to no more than 40 percent of Lowell High School's enrollment. The racial groups were: white, black, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, American Indian, Hispanic, other non-white. In 1983, Chinese were 19.5 percent of school age children, 25 percent by 1995. By 1993 the white school age population had dropped so low that 2 out of 3 white applicants were accepted to Lowell but only 1 out of 3 Chinese applicants were accepted.

    Chinese sued because they needed higher admission scores than the other racial groups. In 1999 the consent decree was modified and other factors such as income and mother's education level were taken into account instead of race. The consent decree expired completely in 2005. From 1988 to today there has been almost no change in the racial makeup of Lowell High School. In the last 10 years "two or more races" has become a category, which is now over 7 percent of the school's enrollment and probably contains the type of people who would have classified as white in the past. Lowell was 22 percent white in 1988 and 14 percent white in 2014.

    Today 70 percent of students are admitted to Lowell based on GPA and standardized exam score. Another 15 percent are based on GPA/exam, income and extracurriculars. The last 15 percent is the same plus underrepresented middle schools are given priority.

    Quotes from a 1995 article:

    Lowell's collection of old yearbooks reads like a chronicle of the American dream, with photographs capturing the sons and daughters of immigrants on their way to becoming American luminaries. Journalist Pierre Salinger got his diploma here, as did cartoonist Rube Goldberg, sculptor Alexander Calder, animal researcher Dian Fossey, biographer Irving Stone, and former California Gov. Edmund G. Brown. The school has produced Nobel Laureates, members of Congress, ambassadors, business tycoons, and a host of college presidents and prominent judges, including U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer, whose peers in the class of 1955 had the foresight to dub him "most likely to succeed."
     

    A substantial number of Lowell students leave the school each year because they feel burned out or believe transferring elsewhere will bolster their grade-point averages and their college-admissions prospects. Because black and Hispanic students are the most likely to leave, and Chinese-Americans usually stay, the school's attrition patterns hinder its efforts to maintain diversity.

    The school's efforts to maintain a diverse student body are also stymied by the fact that successful black and Hispanic applicants have been less likely than those from other groups to enroll. Xochitl Benson, a senior from the city's Excelsior District, says many children in her heavily Hispanic neighborhood are afraid to apply to Lowell because "they don't think they will be able to handle it."

    If Lowell's admissions requirements are biased in favor of blacks and Hispanics, it hardly showed last month during an open house for the school's parents. Almost all of the families that toured the building that night were Asian or white.
     

    For its first 100 years, Lowell mainly took in Italians from North Beach, Irish kids from south of Market Street, and a widely distributed population of Jewish children whose forebears had escaped persecution in Europe. The school also enrolled many Japanese-American children from the old homes around Fillmore Street, but that community was virtually wiped out by the nation's internment policy during World War II.

    As of 1955, most of the seniors in the Lowell yearbook had last names like Byrne, Fabiano, and Helmsdoerfer. A decade later, reforms in the nation's immigration laws opened the Golden Door to more non-Europeans and began to change the face of San Francisco and its schools. Chinese, especially, flocked to the city, moving from Chinatown out into the city's mostly white Richmond and Sunset districts and other areas. By 1980, Lowell's enrollment had become overwhelmingly Asian--and nearly half Chinese--and the yearbook listed dozens of Chows, Lees, and Wongs.

    The Bay Area's shipyards had been drawing large numbers of African-Americans to the city ever since the 1940's. Their children, however, tended to be concentrated in public schools with reputations quite opposite to that of Lowell.

    White flight from the public schools absolutely did occur among White non-Jews in flyover country In the Southern city where I grew up, which has never had a large Jewish population, there were many secular and parochial private schools that were founded or expanded in the early 1970's in response to court-ordered busing. I, a Jewish guy, attended one of these schools for the elementary and middle grades in the 1980's, but I was usually either the only Jewish person or one of very few in my classes.

    Thus, when 27-year-old Atlantic interns denounce all those horrible white people who white flighted away from integrated schools, they tend to picture evil white Southerners who were probably secret Klansmen, meatheaded Catholic ethnics, and snobby WASPs who wouldn’t let their great-grandfathers into their anti-Semitic country clubs, but they don’t picture people much like themselves.

    The forced integration of schools nationwide was the result of court cases initiated by the American Civil Liberties Union ACLU) which had been under Jewish control since its original gentile founders (Roger Baldwin et.al.) had been purged for opposition to the growing influence of the Communist Party in the organization in the early 1940s.. What occurred in San Francisco in particular during this era of busing is both curious and illustrative . The Jews who pushed for integration through groups like the ACLU must have somehow thought (or known) that they would be excluded from it once it came into effect.

    San Francisco, up to the period of this busing, had had three academic high schools: Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Lowell. For decades all of these three schools had produced thousands students who were accepted at all sorts of high level universities including places like the Ivy leagues and Stanford. Lowell, one of the three high schools, was a magnet for one particular type of student , Jewish. It was so heavily Jewish that I know of someone who transferred out of Lowell to Lincoln High School in the late 1950s specifically because he claimed that his social life was being curtailed the many Jewish girls there wouldn't date gentile males. (Interestingly the Jewish males were able to date the much more accepting protestant girls. ) Lowell was in effect a defacto Jewish public high school with large percentages of both Jewish students and teachers.

    When busing came around a curious thing happened, It was suddenly decided without any public input that Lowell would henceforth be considered the primary high school for college bound students in the city with strict admission criteria to be instituted while Washington and Lincoln were left to accept the bused students and then be left essentially to their own devices (i.e neglected). In the following years both Lincoln and Washington ended up essentially falling apart academically and becoming more and more violent , disrupted, and ghetto like. Lincoln in particular suffered the most from this neglect. I remember seeing police cars almost constantly were circling it during school hours during this period.

    This situation continued for several decades before Jews in particular started to feel the pinch of competition from an increasing number of even more academically motivated Chinese. This resulted in an increasing number of Jews who were no longer able to get into Lowell and whose parents then had to choose between the problem ridden Washington or Lincoln high schools or MUCH much more expensive private schools or (gasp) strict Catholic high schools.

    In some cases we will never get to see. George Clooney for example is 55 years old and he still has no kids. That's such a SWPL thing.

    A 55 year old NAM man who has no kids would most likely be accused of being a Homosexual in his community. NAM men come from cultures where they are encouraged to produce at least one off spring before they die. They don't have to take care of them and be there for the child, but they at least have to create them.

    In the White community a White man can be 55 years old, have no kids, and never have his Heterosexuality questioned by other White people.

    I think anyone who thinks White America is going to wake up and fight back, should take a long look at Busing in the 1970s and 1980s.

    Almost no one ever voted for Busing. It was imposed on people by the courts and the bureaucracy. The Civil rights bill was supposed to ban government mandated segregation, not require Government enforced desegregation across entire school districts.

    Reagan campaigned against it, but the republicans would never pass a bill against it. Howard Metzenbaum would get up and say "I'll filibuster any anti-busing bill" and the Senator majority leader Dole/Baker would go "sorry, we just can't pass a bill". And that was that.

    And people just took it. Most of them, instead of getting mad and fighting, just ran away. Or as Steve wrote put their kids in private school. In effect paying for their kids education twice, once thru taxes, then thru private school fees.

    And this was in the 1970s-1980s when supposedly the country was more "racist" and "right-wing".

    I was once trapped in a small room for some time with nothing to read but a Judith Krantz novel. So I did, to stave off claustrophobia.

    The naive shiksa protagonist, new to the city, told her more experienced shiksa friend that she wanted to have some fun, but was wary of getting tangled in a relationship. Her friend immediately advised her, “Fuck Jews!”

    So she did. Even more than her friend.

    Mrs Krantz is a Wellesley alumna. Think there might be some lingering issues there?

    He can have an obsession and still be right.

    My caveat is that he spends a lot of time pointing out various nefarious things upper-middle-class Jews do that lots of upper-middle-class whites do as well. I mean, there was white flight all over the country, they can't have all been Jews.

    White flight from the public schools absolutely did occur among White non-Jews in flyover country In the Southern city where I grew up, which has never had a large Jewish population, there were many secular and parochial private schools that were founded or expanded in the early 1970′s in response to court-ordered busing. I, a Jewish guy, attended one of these schools for the elementary and middle grades in the 1980′s, but I was usually either the only Jewish person or one of very few in my classes.

    A Google Images search for "steve sailer" jewfro failed to turn up the infamous photograph that I've read about.

    (The first result is the shot of Steve in his Santa Claus hat. It's the only picture of him on the first page of results.)

    Of the first eight pictures on the first page for "steve sailer" jewish hair, four are portrait shots of Steve, all from this site; none show Steve with a Jewfro.

    The first four results on the first page for "steve sailer" 1970s are of Steve - three portraits, and the shot with the face carved in the tree.

    Most of the results on the first page for "steve sailer" are, indeed, photographs of Steve Sailer. There are a few I haven't seen before. (Truthfully, this is the first time I've ever looked for such images.)

    There's one where Steve has a somewhat goofy expression on his face and is holding up one of his hands, as if he's waving goodbye. There's another one where he's grasping a rabbit. (The rabbit is mostly white, with a bit of brown; the HBD implications of this admixture remain a mystery.)

    There's another one, obviously taken years ago, where Steve has a full(er) head of dark-brown hair and a beard. He looks as if he kinda sorta could might may be Jewish. If I had never seen any other pictures of Steve, and someone told me he was Jewish, and showed me that picture, then, most likely, I probably would not doubt the veracity of that claim.

    The first eight results on the first page of results for "steve (I inadvertently omitted sailer"):
    * Steve Jobs (1)

    Steve didn't write a post that compared Jewish flight from LA public schools to non-Jewish White flight from public schools. He wrote a post that focused exclusively on Jewish flight from the LA public schools, similar to many other posts of his focusing on the theme of Jewish group behavior. I would never say that he or others should be forbidden from noticing things about groups, including Jews. In fact I agree with Steve's contention that our society notices too little. However, I think that an exclusive focus on Jews in the discussion of flight from the public schools, whether intended or not, does imply that the degree of Jewish engagement in this activity was egregious. Yes, when Jewish liberals fail to act in accordance with what they say they are being hypocrites, but there are plenty of White non-Jews who are just as self-righteous and sanctimonious in their public affirmations of the blank slate and who display every bit as much hypocrisy when it comes to where they live and send their children to school. And I'm not trying to defend the Jewish liberals. Rather, I wish that both Jewish and non-Jewish liberal blank-slaters would just screw off and let the rest of us who form the true reality-based community restore rational behavior to the political and social arenas starting with drastically limited immigration and banishment of the concept of micro-aggression from discourse.

    I'd say it depends on what we mean by "WASPs." I can't imagine that the old money establishment WASPs to whom E. Digby Baltzell applied the acronym would have very high rates of either socializing or intermarrying with Jews. Can you imagine a young Brooke Astor or Bunny Mellon dating a young Sheldon Adelson or Sumner Redstone, or the Astor and Mellon grandchildren dating the Adelson and Redstone grandchildren? Jewish wealth is too new and uncouth for the old money set. On the other hand, I was not at all suprised to see one of Donald Trump's children marry into a similarly wealthy Jewish real estate family. Trump's ethnic background is peudo-WASP (at least Protestant and Northern European), but his money is new and his tastes flashy compared to the Astors and the Mellons.

    What is interesting is the Forced Busing Nonsense may have been a planned prelude to re-segregating all of America to achieve a Congressional Black Caucus. It is noticeable that the pain and stupidity of forced busing put folks in a supportive mood for a national segregation plan that would, of course, magnify the significance of blacks being 13% of the population. If Dems were honestly for integration they knew that blacks would indeed integrate and assimilate and possibly not vote for Dems in lockstep. Remember what LBJ wanted – blacks voting Dem for 200 years. Integration would never achieved LBJ’s goal.

    The forced integration of schools nationwide was the result of court cases initiated by the American Civil Liberties Union ACLU) which had been under Jewish control since its original gentile founders (Roger Baldwin et.al.) had been purged for opposition to the growing influence of the Communist Party in the organization in the early 1940s.. What occurred in San Francisco in particular during this era of busing is both curious and illustrative . The Jews who pushed for integration through groups like the ACLU must have somehow thought (or known) that they would be excluded from it once it came into effect.

    San Francisco, up to the period of this busing, had had three academic high schools: Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Lowell. For decades all of these three schools had produced thousands students who were accepted at all sorts of high level universities including places like the Ivy leagues and Stanford. Lowell, one of the three high schools, was a magnet for one particular type of student , Jewish. It was so heavily Jewish that I know of someone who transferred out of Lowell to Lincoln High School in the late 1950s specifically because he claimed that his social life was being curtailed the many Jewish girls there wouldn't date gentile males. (Interestingly the Jewish males were able to date the much more accepting protestant girls. ) Lowell was in effect a defacto Jewish public high school with large percentages of both Jewish students and teachers.

    When busing came around a curious thing happened, It was suddenly decided without any public input that Lowell would henceforth be considered the primary high school for college bound students in the city with strict admission criteria to be instituted while Washington and Lincoln were left to accept the bused students and then be left essentially to their own devices (i.e neglected). In the following years both Lincoln and Washington ended up essentially falling apart academically and becoming more and more violent , disrupted, and ghetto like. Lincoln in particular suffered the most from this neglect. I remember seeing police cars almost constantly were circling it during school hours during this period.

    This situation continued for several decades before Jews in particular started to feel the pinch of competition from an increasing number of even more academically motivated Chinese. This resulted in an increasing number of Jews who were no longer able to get into Lowell and whose parents then had to choose between the problem ridden Washington or Lincoln high schools or MUCH much more expensive private schools or (gasp) strict Catholic high schools. The recently arrived Russian Jewish emigres in particular were in a quandary because they were simply unable to pay these private school fees. What to do?

    It was only then when a move was made to clean up both Lincoln and Washington High Schools.. This was done by, among other things, instituting far more advanced placement classes there, taught by much better teachers,transferring the worst of the teachers and large scale booting out the worst of the trouble makers by pushing them into the newly set up, so called "charter schools" ( the worst of which are essentially nothing more than crypto reform schools with just as active a police presence.) Lincoln and Washington have apparently finally got their full maintenance budget restored as well. So much for integration. Things have improved greatly since then but Lincoln is particular has never really overcome the problems of the past because the Chinese still hold it in such low repute because of it (very) violent past.

    At the same time as the aforementioned changes in the high schools occurred another interesting event happened. With Jewish parents in the main leadership roles, the toniest neighborhood of San Francisco, Pacific Heights, tried to preserve its local public elementary school, Ulysses Grant, from busing. What was interesting was that many of these these very same, very liberal Jewish parents had been among the main financial backers of the ACLU which had pushed busing in the first place. Somehow these Jews thought they they would be spared its effects of integration while only the gentile lumpen proletariat would experience it. What hypocrisy.! These parents tried to prevent the busing of their children by using their considerable financial and political muscle and access to the best legal representation. The ultra liberal San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD). tolerated these uppity white folks for a while but then became irritated. A solution was needed.

    The school district suddenly decided to bulldoze down the up-to-now beautifully maintained and stately Grant School. It was did it quickly and thoroughly leaving only a totally vacant lot after the bulldozers left. Not even the smallest remnant of a foundation remained. End of problem. The Pacific Heights students now had no choice but to go to another (thoroughly integrated) public school, right! Not quite. Virtually all of these now school-less students were transferred just as as rapidly to private or Catholic schools. Since then, the wealthiest parents in the city no longer had any vested interest in public school their interest in funding them with additional tax increases suddenly waned significantly. They still don't send their children to public schools. Just like NYC.

    Interesting note: I was driving around provincial France in the early 1980s in a rental car while staying in youth hostels and camping. In a small, remote french village I decided to camp in the local campground. The french girl behind the counter at the office counter there spoke to me in very good idiomatic English.I asked her how she had learned such good English. She replied that she had been an exchange student in the United States the previous year.. I asked her where and she replied "San Francisco." I then asked her what high school she had attended. She replied "Abraham Lincoln." I asked her what she thought of Abraham Lincoln High School. She summed up her opinion in just four words, "It was very violent." Nothing else was added. This was the most lasting impression she had about an American school.

    That was an interesting read. In 1983, after years of complaints from the NAACP, the San Francisco school district agreed to a consent decree that would limit each racial group to no more than 40 percent of Lowell High School’s enrollment. The racial groups were: white, black, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, American Indian, Hispanic, other non-white. In 1983, Chinese were 19.5 percent of school age children, 25 percent by 1995. By 1993 the white school age population had dropped so low that 2 out of 3 white applicants were accepted to Lowell but only 1 out of 3 Chinese applicants were accepted.

    Chinese sued because they needed higher admission scores than the other racial groups. In 1999 the consent decree was modified and other factors such as income and mother’s education level were taken into account instead of race. The consent decree expired completely in 2005. From 1988 to today there has been almost no change in the racial makeup of Lowell High School. In the last 10 years “two or more races” has become a category, which is now over 7 percent of the school’s enrollment and probably contains the type of people who would have classified as white in the past. Lowell was 22 percent white in 1988 and 14 percent white in 2014.

    Today 70 percent of students are admitted to Lowell based on GPA and standardized exam score. Another 15 percent are based on GPA/exam, income and extracurriculars. The last 15 percent is the same plus underrepresented middle schools are given priority.

    Quotes from a 1995 article:

    Lowell’s collection of old yearbooks reads like a chronicle of the American dream, with photographs capturing the sons and daughters of immigrants on their way to becoming American luminaries. Journalist Pierre Salinger got his diploma here, as did cartoonist Rube Goldberg, sculptor Alexander Calder, animal researcher Dian Fossey, biographer Irving Stone, and former California Gov. Edmund G. Brown. The school has produced Nobel Laureates, members of Congress, ambassadors, business tycoons, and a host of college presidents and prominent judges, including U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer, whose peers in the class of 1955 had the foresight to dub him “most likely to succeed.”

    A substantial number of Lowell students leave the school each year because they feel burned out or believe transferring elsewhere will bolster their grade-point averages and their college-admissions prospects. Because black and Hispanic students are the most likely to leave, and Chinese-Americans usually stay, the school’s attrition patterns hinder its efforts to maintain diversity.

    The school’s efforts to maintain a diverse student body are also stymied by the fact that successful black and Hispanic applicants have been less likely than those from other groups to enroll. Xochitl Benson, a senior from the city’s Excelsior District, says many children in her heavily Hispanic neighborhood are afraid to apply to Lowell because “they don’t think they will be able to handle it.”

    If Lowell’s admissions requirements are biased in favor of blacks and Hispanics, it hardly showed last month during an open house for the school’s parents. Almost all of the families that toured the building that night were Asian or white.

    For its first 100 years, Lowell mainly took in Italians from North Beach, Irish kids from south of Market Street, and a widely distributed population of Jewish children whose forebears had escaped persecution in Europe. The school also enrolled many Japanese-American children from the old homes around Fillmore Street, but that community was virtually wiped out by the nation’s internment policy during World War II.

    As of 1955, most of the seniors in the Lowell yearbook had last names like Byrne, Fabiano, and Helmsdoerfer. A decade later, reforms in the nation’s immigration laws opened the Golden Door to more non-Europeans and began to change the face of San Francisco and its schools. Chinese, especially, flocked to the city, moving from Chinatown out into the city’s mostly white Richmond and Sunset districts and other areas. By 1980, Lowell’s enrollment had become overwhelmingly Asian–and nearly half Chinese–and the yearbook listed dozens of Chows, Lees, and Wongs.

    The Bay Area’s shipyards had been drawing large numbers of African-Americans to the city ever since the 1940′s. Their children, however, tended to be concentrated in public schools with reputations quite opposite to that of Lowell.

    In our experience, there are visible systematic differences between the African children and the other children (ours) at playgrounds and day-care centers at a much younger age than that. Those “six-year-old” African “children” already have an exposure to vulgarity and a preoccupation with violence and sexuality that is shocking.

    Just anecdotal evidence, but it tends to back up your observation. Our far-left acquaintances in San Francisco — both white, he a lawyer and she a healthcare bureaucrat with a master’s degree — got married in their mid-20s and are now in their mid-30s still with no children, even though they claim, upon inquiry, that they “want” to have children.

    I'm a woman in her mid-thirties, and something peculiar about women in my age group (educated, middle class) that I come across constantly (both in the media targeted to me and my social circle) is this delusion that we can put off having children indefinitely. As Camille Paglia says, we were taught all about birth control and family planning aka abortions, but never about our fertility or planning for an actual family.

    The result is many women only have a vague sense of their waning fertility, and of how taxing it can be to have your first child at an older age, physically, psychologically, financially. They're either under the delusion it's easy to get pregnant because "my cousin/co-worker/so-and-so celebrity got pregnant at 48" or they think an influx of hormone shots, renting another human's womb, or adopting is NBD.

    Just this past weekend, the actress Chloe Sevigny told The Guardian that she wants to "have children someday". She is 41. I hear the same thing from my similar-aged friends too.

    I hope there will be a backlash eventually, and future generations of women will start having families at a more sensible time.

    In some cases we will never get to see. George Clooney for example is 55 years old and he still has no kids. That's such a SWPL thing.

    A 55 year old NAM man who has no kids would most likely be accused of being a Homosexual in his community. NAM men come from cultures where they are encouraged to produce at least one off spring before they die. They don't have to take care of them and be there for the child, but they at least have to create them.

    In the White community a White man can be 55 years old, have no kids, and never have his Heterosexuality questioned by other White people.

    Nah, most of us question the guy’s manliness readily if he’s 55 and has never had children, whether he has been married or not.

It is also a staple of NY/NJ culture, where people from guidos to hipsters say shvartze in an ironic mock yiddish accent.

    Sailer is focused on the specifically Los Angeles aspects of it. But the Los Angeles Jewish community, being so heavily Persian and Israeli in origin, does not fit into the American standard for easy media portrayal anyway.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bowie,_Maryland#2010_census

    Between 2000 and 2010, Bowie’s population plummeted drastically from 62.6% white to only 41.4%.

    Also between 2000 and 2010, Bowie’s population skyrocketed from 30.8% black to 41.%.

    That’s only ten years. These figures do not suggest successful, peaceful coexistence, but yet another instance of white flight.

    Just anecdotal evidence, but it tends to back up your observation. Our far-left acquaintances in San Francisco -- both white, he a lawyer and she a healthcare bureaucrat with a master's degree -- got married in their mid-20s and are now in their mid-30s still with no children, even though they claim, upon inquiry, that they "want" to have children.

    Gee, I can't see how families and then an entire nation dies out, it's so complex and confusing.

    I’m a woman in her mid-thirties, and something peculiar about women in my age group (educated, middle class) that I come across constantly (both in the media targeted to me and my social circle) is this delusion that we can put off having children indefinitely. As Camille Paglia says, we were taught all about birth control and family planning aka abortions, but never about our fertility or planning for an actual family.

    The result is many women only have a vague sense of their waning fertility, and of how taxing it can be to have your first child at an older age, physically, psychologically, financially. They’re either under the delusion it’s easy to get pregnant because “my cousin/co-worker/so-and-so celebrity got pregnant at 48″ or they think an influx of hormone shots, renting another human’s womb, or adopting is NBD.

    Just this past weekend, the actress Chloe Sevigny told The Guardian that she wants to “have children someday”. She is 41. I hear the same thing from my similar-aged friends too.

    I hope there will be a backlash eventually, and future generations of women will start having families at a more sensible time.

    They'll ask questions. Clooney is a movie star and we can fairly assume he hasn't had kids because he wants to mess around until he dies. He can do that at 55 because he has very high status (movie star) and looks like George Clooney.

    He can have an obsession and still be right.

    My caveat is that he spends a lot of time pointing out various nefarious things upper-middle-class Jews do that lots of upper-middle-class whites do as well. I mean, there was white flight all over the country, they can't have all been Jews.

    Change “he” to “the media,” scratch “upper-middle-class,” and swap “Jews” and “whites,” and you have Steve’s point. In fact, he even spelled it out for you.

    Thus, when 27-year-old Atlantic interns denounce all those horrible white people who white flighted away from integrated schools, they tend to picture evil white Southerners who were probably secret Klansmen, meatheaded Catholic ethnics, and snobby WASPs who wouldn’t let their great-grandfathers into their anti-Semitic country clubs, but they don’t picture people much like themselves.

    "Lowell, one of the three high schools, was a magnet for one particular type of student , Jewish. It was so heavily Jewish that I know of someone who transferred out of Lowell to Lincoln High School in the late 1950s specifically because he claimed that his social life was being curtailed the many Jewish girls there wouldn’t date gentile males. (Interestingly the Jewish males were able to date the much more accepting protestant girls. )"

    Statistics do not match your friend's claim that it is extremely hard for a Goy man to get a Jewish girlfriend, as Jewish women in The U.S have a high intermarriage rate.

  165. Not many people in the entertainment industry and media actually grew up in Los Angeles city, which is why the story has been forgotten. The Jews in the biz are mostly from the East Coast, Midwest, or Canada, so they wouldn’t know the stories. L.A. natives of all races and ethnicities are rapidly diminishing in L.A., especially white natives. (There are still Latino natives in the Valley and in some eastside neighborhoods. ) So these stories are receding from memory.

    Probably easier to find people who remember in Portland, Vegas, Austin, the Arizona cities, or elsewhere in SoCal than in L.A. itself.

    Hey Steve, were White kids still the majority among San Fernando Valley's public high schools in 1979 and 1980? Because that is how it was portrayed in Foxes, a film about teenage life in the Valley that was shot in the fall of 1979 and released in theaters in the spring of 1980.

    I'm very curious as to:

    1) the ratio of the % non-Asian minority students in the schools Matt Yglesias' kid attends to the % NAM population of D.C. as a whole.

    2) Matt Yglesias' stated views on racial integration in the education system.

    It's funny how few liberals have enough of the courage of their convictions to do all this "desegregation" of neighborhoods and schools themselves. That's for other people to do, apparently, not them personally.

    DC is pretty good at finessing it. You are guaranteed a place in your local school. However, there is a lottery to allocate places for students in other schools. So, if you live in a black/gentrifying neighborhood you may be able to send your kid to a whiter school. All public school children get free Metrorail passes 24/7. It’s not unknown for blacks in adjoining Prince Georges county MAryland to rig the system and get their kids into Upper Caucasia (NW quadrant) schools.

    Guys, nowhere does he say (or even imply) that there was no non-Jew white flight. I'm inclined to take you as being obtuse rather than disingenuous, but in practice that turns out to be a distinction without a difference.

    As usual, Sailer punctures the obtuseness/disingenuinty to reveal a clearer picture of reality. It only looks overly concerned with Jews relative to the prevailing omertà on discussing them or even including them in discussions of group behavior in which they participated.

    Steve didn’t write a post that compared Jewish flight from LA public schools to non-Jewish White flight from public schools. He wrote a post that focused exclusively on Jewish flight from the LA public schools, similar to many other posts of his focusing on the theme of Jewish group behavior. I would never say that he or others should be forbidden from noticing things about groups, including Jews. In fact I agree with Steve’s contention that our society notices too little. However, I think that an exclusive focus on Jews in the discussion of flight from the public schools, whether intended or not, does imply that the degree of Jewish engagement in this activity was egregious. Yes, when Jewish liberals fail to act in accordance with what they say they are being hypocrites, but there are plenty of White non-Jews who are just as self-righteous and sanctimonious in their public affirmations of the blank slate and who display every bit as much hypocrisy when it comes to where they live and send their children to school. And I’m not trying to defend the Jewish liberals. Rather, I wish that both Jewish and non-Jewish liberal blank-slaters would just screw off and let the rest of us who form the true reality-based community restore rational behavior to the political and social arenas starting with drastically limited immigration and banishment of the concept of micro-aggression from discourse.

    "Jewish women don’t date “WASPs.”

    According to marriage statistics, you are 100 percent wrong.

    I’d say it depends on what we mean by “WASPs.” I can’t imagine that the old money establishment WASPs to whom E. Digby Baltzell applied the acronym would have very high rates of either socializing or intermarrying with Jews. Can you imagine a young Brooke Astor or Bunny Mellon dating a young Sheldon Adelson or Sumner Redstone, or the Astor and Mellon grandchildren dating the Adelson and Redstone grandchildren? Jewish wealth is too new and uncouth for the old money set. On the other hand, I was not at all suprised to see one of Donald Trump’s children marry into a similarly wealthy Jewish real estate family. Trump’s ethnic background is peudo-WASP (at least Protestant and Northern European), but his money is new and his tastes flashy compared to the Astors and the Mellons.

    There’s one where Steve has a somewhat goofy expression on his face and is holding up one of his hands, as if he’s waving goodbye. There’s another one where he’s grasping a rabbit. (The rabbit is mostly white, with a bit of brown; the HBD implications of this admixture remain a mystery.)

    There’s another one, obviously taken years ago, where Steve has a full(er) head of dark-brown hair and a beard. He looks as if he kinda sorta could might may be Jewish. If I had never seen any other pictures of Steve, and someone told me he was Jewish, and showed me that picture, then, most likely, I probably would not doubt the veracity of that claim.
