Re: “Separate, Unequal, and Ignored

So what are you proposing here? A project in Gold Coast? A mansion on 95th? Not plausible. And while you seem to want to separate the issue of class status (poor v. wealthy) from race, there are times when your article skirts the line and brings it back into play, which personally I think is more the issue. I don't think (most) people care what color person they live next door to, as long as they are of a similar status. I'm middle class. I don't want to live next to a crack house. And while I may want to live next to a mansion, that's just not going to happen anytime soon. If you want to live in a nicer neighborhood, fix the issues that got you in the one your in now. Education is accessible by pretty much anyone now, and by multiple means. Do SOMETHING to better yourself, rather than complain about how the white folk got it so good. One final note: As you yourself pointed out, these neighborhoods "were noted for their shootings, robberies, rapes, fires, joblessness, single-parent families, dreadful schools and high dropout rates, rampant alcoholism and heroin addiction, abandoned buildings and vacant lots." And this is what you want the new mayor to force to spread out? Again I say, not plausible.
