  •  No. Reagan Democrats chose racism over class. (0+ / 0-)

    I supportedf integration.  My daughter attended integrated schools.  My suburb has about 15% African Americans and 10% more from a voluntary busing plan from the city.    

    I have no sympathy toward Reagan Democrats.

    •  Was your daughter a child who got bussed some (0+ / 0-)

      Ninety minutes one way, and then another Ninety minutes coming home? Some of the white kids in lower middle class areas inside San Francisco suffered that fate. While kids with darker skin tones suffered that fate in reverse. For some reason, the school system in SF simply could not achieve integration without doing this kind of insane crap.

      I thought the poster you replied to was making a very good point. The elite of both parties love to come up with these idealistic solutions to problems, while they remain immune to those solutions. Meanwhile only those lucky enough to have a nice place in the suburbs see any benefits that don't cause out and out pain. (I admit my household had that kind of luck. My son attended fully integrated schools, but never had to be bussed anywhere.)

      Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.
