A New Must Read at American Thinker

I've posted a new piece at the American Thinker on the hypocracy of white liberals called "The New Separate But Equal". Please let me know what you think about it.

Your piece in The American Thinker was excellent. It was well-written, well-documented and profoundly insightful. Congratulations.

Your piece in The American Thinker aka The New Seperate But Equal is a good article however.....I must say that I read it with glee because of the general trendy thinking by those not living in the southern United States against "white flight" from the public school system! Rather than the "white flight" of the southern United States being instigated by a "so-called lack of diversity" on the part of the public school systems, conversely....it was and is being conducted because of the drastic cultural differences that exist between the white and black races! Frankly....you would not have a clue about what I am speaking to unless you were to walk down through the halls of one of our public schools! If you had been a life-long resident of The South....you would know what I am speaking of!

Your piece in the American Thinker is excellent. Question: You identify varous "Bay Area" communities by the notation "Kerry by 35%". Where does this reference to Kerry's presidential vote margin fit? Do you mean the white liberals voted for Kerry but kept their children out of public school? Or is there another point that I am missing. Given the generally ultra liberal population in the Bay Area, I am not surprised by the vote spread but cannot connect that with the Asian excellence in school performace.

Jeff, the references to Kerry's margin of victory in 2004 by county is meant to illustrate the generally high level of liberalism throughout the SF area. There is also an interesting correlation between Kerry's % and the level of segregation. Generally speaking, the higher the level of liberal support, the greater the degree of segregation in the school system.

To all--Thanks for visiting!

As a poor white American, I must ask: of what use are tuition vouchers, charter schools, school choice, and merit-based teacher pay to poor parents living in poor school districts? It's not as if their tuition voucher will be usable in a rich school district, or that their school district will be able to afford merit-based teacher pay.

Parochial (Catholic, et al) schools spend less per pupil than public school systems, yet get better results. Vouchers won't help send the kids of poor parents to private schools like Groton, but they will help send them to parochial school. The whole point of merit pay is to help poor districts afford better teachers by paying lousy teachers less and better teachers more.

James, thanks for a very interesting piece. It does make one wonder what *is* going on in California? A friend of mine from SoCal said that his high school had quotas set against Asian Americans specifically. Goodness, identity politics are wretched.

I've linked to your piece on my blog, -- hope you don't mind.
