From the New York Times:

‘Threatening the Future’: The High Stakes of Deepening School Segregation

By Dana Goldstein
May 10, 2019

… Today, the decreasing white share of the public school population across the country may lead some to believe that schools are becoming more integrated. But the reverse is true, according to the report. The percentage of intensely segregated schools, defined as those where less than 10 percent of the student body is white, tripled between 1988 and 2016, from 6 to 18 percent. …

If integration is the goal and integration is defined as going to school at a school that is at least 10% white, then the big problem is that America is running out of white children.

Liberal States Suffer Some of the Most Severe Segregation

White students now account for less than half of the nation’s public school students, and Latinos are the most deeply segregated racial group in schools, according to the researchers.

While segregation was once most severe in the former states of the Confederacy, in 2016 it was in four liberal states — New York, California, Maryland and Illinois — that black children were most likely to attend intensely segregated schools. Latinos were most likely to attend intensely segregated schools in California, New York, Texas and New Jersey.

… In 2016, 48 percent of public school students were white, 26 percent were Latino, 15 percent were black and 6 percent were Asian.

White children aren’t the majority anymore, but that doesn’t relieve the white children of their duties to their fellow minorities.

Maybe we should be taking steps to encourage more white babies? For the sake of integration.

    According to the NYT, vibrant Hispanics and Asians are supplying the recommended daily allowance of Diversity to white people. So how come they can't serve the same function for Blacks?

    And if Diversity is so great why are blacks complaining about going to schools populated entirely by "diverse" people?

    Finally, since Jews are the most successful group of all, don't we need to make special efforts to ensure that they mix with blacks even more than other white people?
  3. I attended a city High School for a while back in the days when America still had an abundance of white kids, and they were still quite segregated due to self-sorting into suburban schools: But I am grateful to the enrichment I received at the hands of my fellow majority-minority students, as it toughened me up.

  4. ‘Resegregation Has Happened Because of Intentional Decision-Making’

    Nikole Hannah-Jones: Well, there were a few reasons. I really felt that I didn’t want to just cover that resegregation was happening, that there are lots of reports to show it’s happening and say it’s happening, but kind of leave it up in the air as to how it happens. And I think when you do that, then you give people the opportunity to fill in the blanks, that it’s kind of “natural,” or it’s just “the way things have to be,” and it’s no one’s fault. I really wanted to show that the resegregation has happened largely because of intentional decision-making, and that there actually are people who are at fault. So that was one of the reasons I chose Tuscaloosa.

    Tuscaloosa had managed to create a numerically perfect integration when a court ordered to merge its middle and high schools into single citywide schools. And in 2000, it was released from its court order. And within three months of being released from the court order, Tuscaloosa decided to break apart those integrated schools and create an entirely all-black feeder system, where a third of black students in city schools would go from kindergarten to graduation in all-black schools. So that’s why I chose Tuscaloosa, because I was really wanting to dig around into the intentional decisions that led to that resegregation.

    But what we found is that there was a heavy enforcement of those [federal de-segregation] court orders for a couple of decades. And then what has resulted has been really non-enforcement of most of these court orders for recent decades.

    And that’s for a couple of reasons. The Supreme Court has really backed away from desegregation, it hasn’t ruled in favor of desegregation for decades, and it made it clear that these desegregation orders were not to be permanent, and that they should end as quickly as possible. But also just a real lack of oversight and, I think, political will to enforce the orders.

    So I found dozens of districts where they remained under federal desegregation order, but district leadership didn’t know the orders were open, they didn’t know what the order said. The DoJ wasn’t enforcing. The Department of Ed wasn’t enforcing. And they just were sitting dormant, even though students have rights under these orders.

    Not being in a desegregated school is a violation of rights? Is “I want to see more whitey” really a rallying cry of black students? I dunno.

    Tuscaloosa has a 50%/43% black-white mix:

    Good pithy comment, Kent Nationalist.

    It's important that conservatives/nationalists/sane people challenge this stuff directly by stripping down their blather to reveal vile undergarments of minoritarianism.

    I'd enlarge and say the axioms and core principles:
    -- minorities good, majorities bad
    -- majorities--particularly white gentiles--can't be allow to have their own stuff/free-association
    -- majorities--white gentiles--are oppressive to minorities
    -- minorities have a right of access whites/white stuff

    The obvious conflict between this oppressione narrative and the access/integration demand, is a fertile land to sow and reap.

    Whining about unfair school discipline is a great opening for the obvious "Schools--any institution--really work best with only one set of norms for everyone. So hey, lets just let everyone pick a school with the norms/teaching practices/discipline practices they want. To each his own."

    Anytime any of this "segregation" stuff is trotted out, an immediate rejoinder should be "Why do you think everyone needs to be around white kids to learn?" Don't kids learn in Mexico? In Japan? In India? In Korea? In China? without being around white kids?"

    And we need a lot more "My kids are not your slaves. They don't exist to be subjects of your racial fixations and bizarre social experiments."
    , @Sleep
    Thanks, I've used this saying myself after seeing it here.

    Why are white kids so important? Besides the reasons above, I suspect white kids in these schools are routinely assigned to group projects in which they do all the work but receive the same final grade as the rest of the group. They may even be tutoring other students whom the teacher can't be bothered with. Most white families wont fight back, and when they do it's by running away.

    Recognizing that housing policy is schools policy. When neighborhoods integrate with mixed-income housing, schools integrate and test scores go up.

    Another thing that happens is whites move out when “neighborhoods integrate with mixed-income housing.” That’s just a euphemism for poor blacks entering the school system.

    Because more and more Americans in their 30s are choosing to put down roots in diverse urban neighborhoods, this presents an amazing policy opportunity to foster integrated schools. Charter schools like the Larchmont network in Los Angeles, Community Roots in Brooklyn, and Charles Drew in Atlanta are embracing integration as part of their missions, and are popular with families across lines of race and class.

    Is this true? I’m guessing that (1) there are very few blacks in these schools, (2) they come from non-poor black families or are adopted from Africa by white actresses, (3) and these are elementary schools, with the whites decamping when the diverse black boys hit puberty in middle school or high school.

    When I began reporting on education in 2006, desegregation was seen as hopelessly outdated. Today there is actually growing consensus around the wisdom of integrating schools at the classroom level. (That means not using “gifted” or AP tracks as de facto tracking programs for affluent kids). So while it’s important to acknowledge busing’s flawed history, we need to bring this conversation into the present, too, and explore creative policy solutions to the problem of American children growing up without enough meaningful contact with children from backgrounds different than their own.

The "thinking" is that if Shitavious is allowed into AP, he will be able to do the work. This will look good for college applications, he'll go to an elite school, and live as happily as possible for a black person in white supremacist America. Otherwise, it'll turn out he won't go to college, can't get a job because he can't pass a drug test, and end up in and out of prison for the rest of his life.

    One of my young nieces attends Drew in Atlanta. It is located in the East Lake neighborhood, home to the famous East Lake Golf Club which was golf legend Bobby Jones's home course.

    From Wiki:
    "Since 2004, East Lake has been the permanent home of The Tour Championship, the culminating event of the PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedEx Cup.[1] The Tour Championship was first played at the course in 1998. The 2018 tournament was won by Tiger Woods with Justin Rose claiming the FedEx Cup.[4]

    All proceeds from operations at East Lake Golf Club—more than $20 million to date[3]—go to support the East Lake Foundation, which has helped transform one of the nation's worst public housing projects into a thriving community.[5]"

    The neighborhood transitioned over the 20th century from white to black and became a crime ridden slum. A housing project in the 70's solidified this position. In the 90's, Atlanta began to tear down all their housing projects paving the way for gentrification. My brother bought a former crack house about a decade ago and it's value has skyrocketed. But the neighborhood is still pretty sketchy.

    Far from integrated, Drew still seems heavily black. My niece is the token white kid in all her school pictures. But that also means she's almost always at the top of her class and represents Drew in intracity and state academic competitions. She's like the metaphorical one-eyed man in a blind world.
    I'm sure she'd be an average smartish student in Atlanta's northern suburbs but she's a rock star at Drew. She's transitioning into middle school so we'll see if things change as her classmates begin to see her as the "other".

    My high school (40% black) eliminated honors classes in order to fight segregation. So yes, liberals will literally end the concept of gifted education to integrate schools if they have to. AP classes are not as practical to eliminate because taking the tests lets you skip college classes.
    , @Abolish_public_education
    No AP classes!

    The skoolz were sold, to a gullible voting public, for the purpose of providing desperately poor kids with (what we now know as) *basic skills*; done by eighth grade or so.

    As an alternative to nothing at all.

    Not to serve as a cheap, convenient alternative for non-poor kids (who would otherwise go to private schools).

    I still get a chuckle out of the videos in which Jewish and Asian parents in NYC freak out at the school district's plans to make their schools more 'diverse'.

    As long as diversity is foisted on someone else's kids, it is all wonderful. The minute your little Schlomo or Judith has to be around blacks, bam.... kvetching. "Look, this will be a little disruptive.... my child has special needs.... maybe we can just improve funding for their schools".

  9. Everyone knows that non-White children simply cannot learn unless sitting near White children.

    White children generate magic learning dust. It emanates from their bodies.

  10. Has anyone told Ms. Goldstein that schools in Guatemala are filled with (gasp!) 100% hispanic children? And schools in Nigeria are filled with 100% Black children?

    No Whites at all there. Oh, the humanity!

    Here she is, interesting fashion choice: maybe she rushed over in her hospital smock after getting a CT scan. She’s not barefoot, although she appears to be at first glance; but she walks like a tranny.

    She is married, to Andrei Scheinkman, who seems to be trained in computer development, but he works as an internet data journalist. His father is Brazilian-American Jewish economist José Scheinkman (Princeton, U of Chi).

    Meanwhile in Merkelland:

    BDS = anti-Semitism? Germany passes motion against Palestinian protest movement

    The old slogan "don't buy from Jews" now refurbished into "you must not know whether you buy from Jews".


    Germany’s parliament has passed a motion defining the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement as anti-Semitic. It calls on Berlin to cut funding to groups supporting BDS.

    The Bundestag voted to adopt the non-binding motion backed by Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU party on Friday, making it the first European parliament to do so.

     

    YADDA!

    “In view of Germany's historical responsibility, it is of great value that a large majority of the German Bundestag, across faction boundaries, has repeatedly committed itself to security and the protection of Israel as well as to the fight against anti-Semitism,” the Greens and SPD said in a statement released before the vote.

     

    This is why "Eurovision" is now "Israelovision".

    Two other BDS-related motions are being voted on on Friday, but aren’t expected to pass. AfD is calling to outlaw BDS, and Die Linke wanted a softer version of the motion that condemns “anti-Semitic incidents” in the movement.

     

    Not a BDSer myself, but ... AfD, I am disappoint. Not my alternative.

    Germany saw a 19.6 percent increase in anti-Semitic incidents last year, security officials said.

     

    So, instead of 100 incidents, we got 120 incidents. Gee, I wonder whether that's BDS people who did it? Yeah, probably not.

    Ms. Goldstein has a blog entry here on desegregation:

    http://www.danagoldstein.com/2014/02/is-school-desegregation-a-failed-movement.html

    Recognizing that housing policy is schools policy. When neighborhoods integrate with mixed-income housing, schools integrate and test scores go up.
     
    Another thing that happens is whites move out when "neighborhoods integrate with mixed-income housing." That's just a euphemism for poor blacks entering the school system.

    Because more and more Americans in their 30s are choosing to put down roots in diverse urban neighborhoods, this presents an amazing policy opportunity to foster integrated schools. Charter schools like the Larchmont network in Los Angeles, Community Roots in Brooklyn, and Charles Drew in Atlanta are embracing integration as part of their missions, and are popular with families across lines of race and class.
     
    Is this true? I'm guessing that (1) there are very few blacks in these schools, (2) they come from non-poor black families or are adopted from Africa by white actresses, (3) and these are elementary schools, with the whites decamping when the diverse black boys hit puberty in middle school or high school.


    When I began reporting on education in 2006, desegregation was seen as hopelessly outdated. Today there is actually growing consensus around the wisdom of integrating schools at the classroom level. (That means not using "gifted" or AP tracks as de facto tracking programs for affluent kids). So while it's important to acknowledge busing's flawed history, we need to bring this conversation into the present, too, and explore creative policy solutions to the problem of American children growing up without enough meaningful contact with children from backgrounds different than their own.
     
    What is she saying about AP classes? You shouldn't have them? You should have affirmative action dumbass kids mixed in with the smart kids in AP classes?

    “Today there is actually growing consensus around the wisdom of integrating schools at the classroom level.” Really? Among whom? This is the same type of disingenuous sweeping statement one sees coming from Fox News talking heads when they preface a statement with “People are saying…” to advance their opinions.

    ‘Resegregation Has Happened Because of Intentional Decision-Making’

    Nikole Hannah-Jones: Well, there were a few reasons. I really felt that I didn’t want to just cover that resegregation was happening, that there are lots of reports to show it’s happening and say it’s happening, but kind of leave it up in the air as to how it happens. And I think when you do that, then you give people the opportunity to fill in the blanks, that it’s kind of “natural,” or it’s just “the way things have to be,” and it’s no one’s fault. I really wanted to show that the resegregation has happened largely because of intentional decision-making, and that there actually are people who are at fault. So that was one of the reasons I chose Tuscaloosa.

    Tuscaloosa had managed to create a numerically perfect integration when a court ordered to merge its middle and high schools into single citywide schools. And in 2000, it was released from its court order. And within three months of being released from the court order, Tuscaloosa decided to break apart those integrated schools and create an entirely all-black feeder system, where a third of black students in city schools would go from kindergarten to graduation in all-black schools. So that’s why I chose Tuscaloosa, because I was really wanting to dig around into the intentional decisions that led to that resegregation.

    ...

    But what we found is that there was a heavy enforcement of those [federal de-segregation] court orders for a couple of decades. And then what has resulted has been really non-enforcement of most of these court orders for recent decades.

    And that’s for a couple of reasons. The Supreme Court has really backed away from desegregation, it hasn’t ruled in favor of desegregation for decades, and it made it clear that these desegregation orders were not to be permanent, and that they should end as quickly as possible. But also just a real lack of oversight and, I think, political will to enforce the orders.

    So I found dozens of districts where they remained under federal desegregation order, but district leadership didn’t know the orders were open, they didn’t know what the order said. The DoJ wasn’t enforcing. The Department of Ed wasn’t enforcing. And they just were sitting dormant, even though students have rights under these orders.

     

    Not being in a desegregated school is a violation of rights? Is "I want to see more whitey" really a rallying cry of black students? I dunno.

    One of my young nieces attends Drew in Atlanta. It is located in the East Lake neighborhood, home to the famous East Lake Golf Club which was golf legend Bobby Jones’s home course.

    From Wiki:
    “Since 2004, East Lake has been the permanent home of The Tour Championship, the culminating event of the PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedEx Cup.[1] The Tour Championship was first played at the course in 1998. The 2018 tournament was won by Tiger Woods with Justin Rose claiming the FedEx Cup.[4]

    All proceeds from operations at East Lake Golf Club—more than $20 million to date[3]—go to support the East Lake Foundation, which has helped transform one of the nation’s worst public housing projects into a thriving community.[5]”

    The neighborhood transitioned over the 20th century from white to black and became a crime ridden slum. A housing project in the 70’s solidified this position. In the 90’s, Atlanta began to tear down all their housing projects paving the way for gentrification. My brother bought a former crack house about a decade ago and it’s value has skyrocketed. But the neighborhood is still pretty sketchy.

    Far from integrated, Drew still seems heavily black. My niece is the token white kid in all her school pictures. But that also means she’s almost always at the top of her class and represents Drew in intracity and state academic competitions. She’s like the metaphorical one-eyed man in a blind world.
    I’m sure she’d be an average smartish student in Atlanta’s northern suburbs but she’s a rock star at Drew. She’s transitioning into middle school so we’ll see if things change as her classmates begin to see her as the “other”.

  33. Maybe we should be taking steps to encourage more white babies? For the sake of integration.

    Steve Sailer is so nice you would think he’s from Iowa or Minnesota or New Hampshire or Wisconsin.

    My answer is that White Core America must immediately call for a WHITE BABY BOOM to prepare for the inevitable Civil War II that is on its way.

    Thankfully, Civil War II will be much less bloody than the Civil War because it only involves White Core America decapitating the JEW/WASP ruling class and immediately taking over the corporate propaganda apparatus and the internet and the newspapers and the radio and the electronic command and control of the nuclear and conventional arsenal of the United States military. We can do it in a few hours and then drink some beer to celebrate our victory.

    The new White Core American ruling class understands that in a mass democracy the key to power is to control the mass media.

    If you combined a WHITE BABY BOOM with a MASS DEPORTATION of foreigners you would make it easier for young White people to engage in AFFORDABLE FAMILY FORMATION.

    White Core America must identify and crush its enemies and liquidate them financially and politically and culturally and then deport them to sub-Saharan Africa.

    if 99% of the students are Latino, then the racial demographics would be about 50% White...since 50% of hispanics self-identify as white. In 1969 the school would be considered too white and they would require bussing to introduce Blacks into the school.
  38. 53% of Hispanics in America self identify as White alone. Of the 51 million hispanics counted in the 2010 census , 27 Million claimed to be white, 6% self-identify as Mixed race and 36% self-identify as some “other” race (such as mestizo or Mexican or Puerto Rican as race)

    If the media was consistent in how they define race they would find the schools with many hispanics are quite divers and not segregated. Hispanic is not a racial classification. A school which is 60% Hispanic , 30% Black and 10% white is not an accurate racial breakdown of the school. By race the school would be 40% white, 30% Black, 20% La Raza Cósmica (the Cosmic Race) and 5% Mixed race.

    53% of Mexicans self-identify as white, 40% identify as La Raza Cósmica
    54% of Puerto Ricans identify as white, 36% identify as Boricua or Puerto Rican race
    85% of Cubans self-identify as white
    65% of South Americans self-identify as white

    the media often counts hispanics as white , as when they refer to the racial breakdown of the United States as being 70% white ,counting the 27 Million White Hispanics as white to avoid spooking Americans about our diversity. For example, when counting the number of white births the Government counts most hispanic births as white when they realized too many Americans change their voting behavior when they realize the impact of our open borders.

    Thus the media will count most hispanics as white when it is convenient for them and then count hispanics as non-white when talking about school segregation. Then they have articles saying the US will remain a white majority nation because some mixed race children identify as white.

    BDS = anti-Semitism? Germany passes motion against Palestinian protest movement

    The old slogan “don’t buy from Jews” now refurbished into “you must not know whether you buy from Jews”.

    Germany’s parliament has passed a motion defining the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement as anti-Semitic. It calls on Berlin to cut funding to groups supporting BDS.

    The Bundestag voted to adopt the non-binding motion backed by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU party on Friday, making it the first European parliament to do so.

    YADDA!

    “In view of Germany’s historical responsibility, it is of great value that a large majority of the German Bundestag, across faction boundaries, has repeatedly committed itself to security and the protection of Israel as well as to the fight against anti-Semitism,” the Greens and SPD said in a statement released before the vote.

    This is why “Eurovision” is now “Israelovision”.

    Two other BDS-related motions are being voted on on Friday, but aren’t expected to pass. AfD is calling to outlaw BDS, and Die Linke wanted a softer version of the motion that condemns “anti-Semitic incidents” in the movement.

    Not a BDSer myself, but … AfD, I am disappoint. Not my alternative.

    Germany saw a 19.6 percent increase in anti-Semitic incidents last year, security officials said.

    So, instead of 100 incidents, we got 120 incidents. Gee, I wonder whether that’s BDS people who did it? Yeah, probably not.

    According to the NYT, vibrant Hispanics and Asians are supplying the recommended daily allowance of Diversity to white people. So how come they can't serve the same function for Blacks?

    And if Diversity is so great why are blacks complaining about going to schools populated entirely by "diverse" people?

    Finally, since Jews are the most successful group of all, don't we need to make special efforts to ensure that they mix with blacks even more than other white people?

    To the Intersectional Progressive Left, 'whiteness' is like plutonium: it's radioactive and dangerous and might harm black and brown bodies if they get too close, yet it's also a valuable resource to be sought out and exploited.

    More like that final scene in Close Encounters of the Third Kind where the Aliens finally bus hapless engineer Ralf Neary & the robotic Fed Agents into their mothership.

  49. White women are paid as much by government as Black women and legal & illegal immigrants to have sex and reproduce in single-breadwinner households.

    This is a lot of encouragement:

    1) the elimination of a monthly food bill by EBT that increases with each kid popped out, climbing as high as $432 for a single mommy of two ten years ago when I worked in that program, and it’s probably more now;

    2) free or reduced-cost rent (in states where non-womb-productive, single earners must pay at least $800 — $900 per month for a one-room apartment);

    [MORE]

    3) free electricity;

    4) monthly cash assistance in the same amount as the EBT for kids born within the time restrictions;

    5) a refundable child tax credit up to $6,431 in cold, hard cash to spend however mommy wants, including on beach trips with boyfriends, where she has the opportunity to make more babies at taxpayer expense.

    White women, no more or less than minorites, are also aided in working while having children by a plethora of mom-staffed, mom-managed office jobs where they are allowed to openly discriminate, hiring and retaining all or mostly fellow absentee moms.

    These workplaces are advertised as “Voted Best For Moms,” and they offer moms above-firing status in many cases, including for the many moms who exchange libertine absenteeism privileges for low pay since a spousal income covers their major household bills.

    Many, many, many, many mom-dominated government and corporate office jobs also offfer part-time jobs to single moms that keep them under the earned-income limits for the welfare programs. Or, single moms can work temp gigs, dropping the welfare during months when they go over the earned-income limits.

    This is all available to legal / illegal immigrants, too, and they often get it via proof of a sole, male breadwinner’s traceable income that falls under the programs’ income limits and their US-born kids’ SS cards. That should be eliminated to help reduce segregation.

    This welfare-rigged system is working to reduce laborforce participation among working-aged citizens to historic lows.

    It is also working to curtail new household formation among young, white, welfare-ineligible, not-yet-womb-productive citizens, plus putting older and middle-aged, single, childless, white (and minority) citizens and single moms with kids over 18 in horrible, humiliating economic situations, where they are forced to compete with the welfare-eligible moms for jobs that will not cover rent, which the non-womb-productive citizens must cover on earned-only income from one person, unlike the moms.

    I have a better idea to change this system that is not working to reduce school segregation.

    This should be applied especially to the over-the-top indulgence of refundable child tax credits.

    A single mom gets her refundable child tax credit @ $6,431 via a phone app. Though “poor,” she and every kid she births has a smartphone.

    When the single mom tries to use her Working Families Refundable Child Tax Credit to rent a hotel room in Florida with her boyfriend, she is prevented from doing it by a program that will not let her use the money on anything outside of the kids’ clothing section, the food department, the school supply section and, between November and December, the toy department.

    An audible message is heard by all, including the hotel clerk processing the single mom’s room order. The recorded voice sounds just like the voice of the Rep. from Guam on the Banking Committee or Rand Paul, the only two grown-*** men who have had the guts to clearly critique refundable child tax credits for non income taxpayers in recent years.

    “We see that you are attempting to use your Working Families Refundable Child Tax Credit, ending in the numbers 5010 at the XXX Hotel in Panama City, Florida, registered under your name and the name of a Mr. Juan Don.

    If Mr. Don is the father of the children that you are receiving X, X, X and X monthly benefits for, press 1.

    If Mr. Don is the father of the children that you are receiving X, X, X and X monthly benefits for and lives in your household, contributing uncounted income to your household, press 2.

    If Mr. Don is not the father of your children, press 3.

    If Mr. Don is not the father of your children, but does contribute uncounted income to your household, press 4.

    Wait please while we connect you to your caseworker.

    This process could take several minutes—more if your caseworker is an above-firing crony mom, and it is after 2:30 pm, Mom Daughter Togetherness Day at her kid’s school, her fifth excused two-week vacation of the year for busy-working moms, move-in day at her kid’s college, Mom’s Day Out at her church or any other activity that can be associated with above-firing crony parenthood.”

    This is happening all over the USA. But a lot of people don't realize it's happening because there is wide variation between states and metro areas and even individual neighborhoods.

    In Cincinnati, the Hispanic wave has not hit hard at all. The community i grew up in--which was 99% white in the 60s--is still around 80% white. But the school i started in is now 50% black and 25% Hispanic, because it's one of just two elementary schools for a larger district.

    My brother-in-law in Colombus had to flee across the Scioto as the school--in his perfectly respectible middle class suburb--hispanified around his youngest kid from all the Mexican kids in nearby apartments. Even though Columbus doesn't actually have a lot of hispanics--yet.

    Another grad school friend, returned to Chicago--a city that really has seen a huge influx--to work for the Fed and in his looking around at neighborhoods/schools checked out his childhood DesPlaines neighborhood/school. Still not many blacks but his childhood school has gone heavily hispanic and was "poorly performing".

  54. “Liberal States Suffer Some of the Most Severe Segregation”

    That’s a funny way to spell “enjoy.”

    Having lived in the South, Maryland, and NYC, I would guess that even in the days of Jim Crow, maybe even pre-1865, the deep South was (residentially speaking only, of course) less segregated than the north, simply because the South was more rural and huge numbers of blacks had been living there (spread out, not clumped together) for hundreds of years. (Until recently, when immigration from the Caribbean and Africa became significant, practically every black person in America was the descendant of Africans brought here before 1800.) And before the Great Migration, few blacks lived outside the South. The rest of the country was overwhelmingly white. In the north, blacks migrated into cities and they were segregated from the beginning. Partly by policy, and partly because once blacks reached a critical mass in a neighborhood, whites got the hell out.

  55. Anon[210] • Disclaimer says:

    “I’m trying to determine if Dana Goldstein has children and where they go to school.”

    It wouldn’t surprise me at all if she turned out to be hypocrite. It’s very common with that demographic – wealthy, left-leaning. IIRC, not long ago some left-wing hack attacked conservative Rod Dreher over a racial issue, and it was then pointed out in response that the hack in question was sending his kids to a racially-segregated private school. Properly shamed, the hack then withdrew his kid and sent him to a public school before continuing his attack. Of course, he neglected to tell his audience what kind of public school his kids were going to as some of these schools are still quite non-diverse. These people are all hypocrites. It’s about beating down their opponent and deflecting away from their own hypocrisy and not necessarily about following through on principle alone. How many Hollywood liberals send their kids to elite, less diverse public schools or even racially nonintegrated private schools? The number is greater than you’d think. And how many of the people who led efforts to keep minority-attracting Whole Foods, I believe it was, out of Malibu also publicly endorsed Obama? Or have called Trump a racist on Twitter? Or freaked out when Trump said he was going to dump immigrants into sanctuary cities. It’s all a game of deflection.

    Recognizing that housing policy is schools policy. When neighborhoods integrate with mixed-income housing, schools integrate and test scores go up.
     
    Another thing that happens is whites move out when "neighborhoods integrate with mixed-income housing." That's just a euphemism for poor blacks entering the school system.

    Because more and more Americans in their 30s are choosing to put down roots in diverse urban neighborhoods, this presents an amazing policy opportunity to foster integrated schools. Charter schools like the Larchmont network in Los Angeles, Community Roots in Brooklyn, and Charles Drew in Atlanta are embracing integration as part of their missions, and are popular with families across lines of race and class.
     
    Is this true? I'm guessing that (1) there are very few blacks in these schools, (2) they come from non-poor black families or are adopted from Africa by white actresses, (3) and these are elementary schools, with the whites decamping when the diverse black boys hit puberty in middle school or high school.


    When I began reporting on education in 2006, desegregation was seen as hopelessly outdated. Today there is actually growing consensus around the wisdom of integrating schools at the classroom level. (That means not using "gifted" or AP tracks as de facto tracking programs for affluent kids). So while it's important to acknowledge busing's flawed history, we need to bring this conversation into the present, too, and explore creative policy solutions to the problem of American children growing up without enough meaningful contact with children from backgrounds different than their own.

    My high school (40% black) eliminated honors classes in order to fight segregation. So yes, liberals will literally end the concept of gifted education to integrate schools if they have to. AP classes are not as practical to eliminate because taking the tests lets you skip college classes.

    There are many elementary schools in Phoenix, Arizona where whites at most number one or two per class, if they are there at all. Most of the students are Latino. Particularly on the west side of Phoenix, not something you see visiting Scottsdale, (or Snottsdale).

    if 99% of the students are Latino, then the racial demographics would be about 50% White…since 50% of hispanics self-identify as white. In 1969 the school would be considered too white and they would require bussing to introduce Blacks into the school.

    ‘Resegregation Has Happened Because of Intentional Decision-Making’

    Nikole Hannah-Jones: Well, there were a few reasons. I really felt that I didn’t want to just cover that resegregation was happening, that there are lots of reports to show it’s happening and say it’s happening, but kind of leave it up in the air as to how it happens. And I think when you do that, then you give people the opportunity to fill in the blanks, that it’s kind of “natural,” or it’s just “the way things have to be,” and it’s no one’s fault. I really wanted to show that the resegregation has happened largely because of intentional decision-making, and that there actually are people who are at fault. So that was one of the reasons I chose Tuscaloosa.

    Tuscaloosa had managed to create a numerically perfect integration when a court ordered to merge its middle and high schools into single citywide schools. And in 2000, it was released from its court order. And within three months of being released from the court order, Tuscaloosa decided to break apart those integrated schools and create an entirely all-black feeder system, where a third of black students in city schools would go from kindergarten to graduation in all-black schools. So that’s why I chose Tuscaloosa, because I was really wanting to dig around into the intentional decisions that led to that resegregation.

    ...

    But what we found is that there was a heavy enforcement of those [federal de-segregation] court orders for a couple of decades. And then what has resulted has been really non-enforcement of most of these court orders for recent decades.

    And that’s for a couple of reasons. The Supreme Court has really backed away from desegregation, it hasn’t ruled in favor of desegregation for decades, and it made it clear that these desegregation orders were not to be permanent, and that they should end as quickly as possible. But also just a real lack of oversight and, I think, political will to enforce the orders.

    So I found dozens of districts where they remained under federal desegregation order, but district leadership didn’t know the orders were open, they didn’t know what the order said. The DoJ wasn’t enforcing. The Department of Ed wasn’t enforcing. And they just were sitting dormant, even though students have rights under these orders.

     

    Not being in a desegregated school is a violation of rights? Is "I want to see more whitey" really a rallying cry of black students? I dunno.

    Tuscaloosa has a 50%/43% black-white mix:

    Why is it always the (((whites))) who care about segregation? Blacks only care about "gentrification".

    Between segregation and gentrification, where the hell are we all supposed to live?

    Non-poor, White, left-wing, private school parents are notorious for complaining, to the trustees (of the $35,000 per year schools they send their kids to), that their exclusive schools are not racially diverse enough.

    The more non-poor, the more loudly they complain.

    Yeah we’re set for 7-12 if we stay in the city, just have to swing K-6 and hope the heavily black city school going into the building of a Catholic school that went out of business after 70 years of operation doesn’t destroy the neighborhood. That school sits on the corner of our remarkably bucolic all-white street.

    Ohio has vouchers for kids in failing (i. e. heavily black) public school districts, but thanks to those vouchers many local private schools are also turning out to be heavily black.

    All states offer vouchers to their own public workers who wish to send their own kids to private schools.

    Think about it.

    "What is the ethnic/racial composition of the schools that Dana Goldstein has chosen (heh) for her children?"

    I still get a chuckle out of the videos in which Jewish and Asian parents in NYC freak out at the school district's plans to make their schools more 'diverse'.

    As long as diversity is foisted on someone else's kids, it is all wonderful. The minute your little Schlomo or Judith has to be around blacks, bam.... kvetching. "Look, this will be a little disruptive.... my child has special needs.... maybe we can just improve funding for their schools".

    Works not just with Jews or Asians, but anyone who virtue-signals about the alleged merits of diversity and wanting endless third world immigration.

    I especially enjoy asking cuckservatives about their children’s schools after they go on about how we need to import endless streams of Somalis and Guatemalan peasants because strawberries are rotting in the fields.

    “You want more of these people in our country, but you choose to live nowhere near them in a supermajority White, wealthy zip code. You have a Latina maid though. Out of curiosity, what is the racial/ethic breakdown of your kids’ school?”

    They really lose their sh*t.

    First they won’t answer. Then they get angry. Then they accuse you of suggesting they are racist (they are mortally fearful of being called a racist, almost as bad as being called an anti-semite).

    It’s highly amusing.

    They can’t handle the cognitive dissonance when it becomes clear their (loudly) stated positions are quite opposite from the personal preferences revealed by their behavior. They go a little crazy.

  78. Today, the decreasing white share of the public school population across the country may lead some to believe that schools are becoming more integrated. But the reverse is true, according to the report. The percentage of intensely segregated schools, defined as those where less than 10 percent of the student body is white, tripled between 1988 and 2016, from 6 to 18 percent.

    This is supposed to be a sophisticated person writing for other sophisticated people. And yet she presents the fact that a declining percentage of white children overall will lead to a greater number of schools with very few white children as a startling surprise! Articles like this make me want to bang my head against the wall.

    My public school Kindergarten was about 70/30 White/Hispanic.

    Today it is....and I am not making this up....98% Hispanic (And probably 2% who filled out the forms incorrectly.)

    This is happening all over the USA. But a lot of people don’t realize it’s happening because there is wide variation between states and metro areas and even individual neighborhoods.

    In Cincinnati, the Hispanic wave has not hit hard at all. The community i grew up in–which was 99% white in the 60s–is still around 80% white. But the school i started in is now 50% black and 25% Hispanic, because it’s one of just two elementary schools for a larger district.

    My brother-in-law in Colombus had to flee across the Scioto as the school–in his perfectly respectible middle class suburb–hispanified around his youngest kid from all the Mexican kids in nearby apartments. Even though Columbus doesn’t actually have a lot of hispanics–yet.

    Another grad school friend, returned to Chicago–a city that really has seen a huge influx–to work for the Fed and in his looking around at neighborhoods/schools checked out his childhood DesPlaines neighborhood/school. Still not many blacks but his childhood school has gone heavily hispanic and was “poorly performing”.

    No one saw the Panzers role by, so many people don’t understand we’ve been invaded.

    It’s really something how parents can “shop” for neighborhoods that feature not totally crappy public skoolz.

    Once again we see the Government picking winners and losers.

    90% of public skoolz are funded in order to imprison undesirable kids within them (those skoolz are like Indian reservations), and thereby keep them [redlined] OUT of the skoolz that are reserved for middle++ class Whites.

    Funded, that is, for football, self-esteem, and metal detectors. No sort of *academic* instruction occurs there.

    But that’s all a pretext for *unnecessarily* funding the rich, White public skoolz (to offer AP classes, Model UN club, and LAX).

    Poor people have to pay high sales taxes so that rich people can save on private school tuition (and deduct their property taxes on Schedule 1).

    Good pithy comment, Kent Nationalist.

    It’s important that conservatives/nationalists/sane people challenge this stuff directly by stripping down their blather to reveal vile undergarments of minoritarianism.

    I’d enlarge and say the axioms and core principles:
    — minorities good, majorities bad
    — majorities–particularly white gentiles–can’t be allow to have their own stuff/free-association
    — majorities–white gentiles–are oppressive to minorities
    — minorities have a right of access whites/white stuff

    The obvious conflict between this oppressione narrative and the access/integration demand, is a fertile land to sow and reap.

    Whining about unfair school discipline is a great opening for the obvious “Schools–any institution–really work best with only one set of norms for everyone. So hey, lets just let everyone pick a school with the norms/teaching practices/discipline practices they want. To each his own.”

    Anytime any of this “segregation” stuff is trotted out, an immediate rejoinder should be “Why do you think everyone needs to be around white kids to learn?” Don’t kids learn in Mexico? In Japan? In India? In Korea? In China? without being around white kids?”

    And we need a lot more “My kids are not your slaves. They don’t exist to be subjects of your racial fixations and bizarre social experiments.”

    Yes normal kids are doing well in normal countries with or without being white or being around whites. Only abnormal kids (Negroid, mestizo, Polynesian, Australoids etc) don't and they don't do well with or without whites.

    Skoolkids are slaves to the edyukashun (especially teachers’) unions.

    The kids are forced to attend (where they waste 6+ hours/day @180 days for 10+ years), purely as funding tokens for the benefit (windfall!) of the public union members who leech off the system.

    How many "White Hispanics" are actually white?

    probably 9% are actually white , which is why using Non-hispanic white is probably the more accurate metric for determining how white a school is.

    Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are white. But Jessica Alba and Jeb’s children are not white. Need to be at least 80% European and less than 20% amerindian to be counted as white. Jessica Alba does not consider herself White, and she is 75% European. I agree with her self assessment.

    Thanks, I’ve used this saying myself after seeing it here.

    Why are white kids so important? Besides the reasons above, I suspect white kids in these schools are routinely assigned to group projects in which they do all the work but receive the same final grade as the rest of the group. They may even be tutoring other students whom the teacher can’t be bothered with. Most white families wont fight back, and when they do it’s by running away.

    My high school (40% black) eliminated honors classes in order to fight segregation. So yes, liberals will literally end the concept of gifted education to integrate schools if they have to. AP classes are not as practical to eliminate because taking the tests lets you skip college classes.

    Colleges are fighting (hard) against giving AP credits nowadays using any pretext they can find. Those credits are worth big bucks.

    Those greedy bastards. I started out college as a sophomore from my many AP credits. Then I took a math test that allowed me to dispense with lower level math classes. They also gave me a scholarship that paid most of my tuition and other costs. That was because I was a NMSF and won some national science award in HS.

  88. Some geographical areas manifest public skoolz with high concentrations of White kids and, at the same time, on the other side of some politically drawn boundary line, skoolz with high concentrations of non-White kids.

    My, my, my.

    Based on such population statistics and the laws of thermodynamics, one can calculate the amount of political energy (capital) that is being expended in order to maintain that (otherwise unnatural) equilibrium.

    Whites are increasingly opting out of public education all together. Those who can afford private schools send their kids there and many who cannot home school. I have also known people who have doubled their commuting times to move far enough out to the edge of a metro area to find the "right" schools for their kids.

    This is at or near the top of the list of reasons why whites are having so few children. The Left has created a toxic environment for our children that is very expensive to escape.
