The overall race demographics of the district are 66% black and 28% white.
The real purpose of the deseg court order is to force the district to arrange the demographics of each of its individual schools, and in the case of this district, it will come as a function of consolidating schools, such that they are as close as possible to the demographics of the entire district. And the real purpose of that is to prevent any one school from being 100% or close to 100% black. Plain words, keep enough white students in every school to prevent any one school from being all black and therefore an absolute dystopian hell. It’s what deseg has always been about: Using white students as buffers for black academic and social dysfunction.
It should be noted that before now, no one single school in the district was majority or plurality white. It’s just that some schools were 40-ish percent white, others had virtually none.
The problem is, as we can see in Cleveland, Mississippi, and everywhere else, we’re running out of white kids, not just in the realm of public school attendance, which is an important distinction, because a big percentage of white school aged students in Mississippi aren’t in public schools, but also generally speaking.
Also, nobody has ever really asked why it is the duty of white parents to let their kids be nothing more than the academic equivalent of cutting agents. Don’t be asking too many questions and trying to answer them, unless you want to be anti-Semitic.
