LAUSD- STILL CRAZY [SEGREGATED] AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

At the beginning of the week I went to UCLA to hear African American attorney Michaela N.Turnage Young, senior counsel for the NAACP Defense and Education Fund and lead attorney in the diversity admissions case against Harvard. When I asked her why the NAACP Defense and Education Fund choose to pursue Harvard as opposed to going after the yet blatant segregation in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, and other inner city public school systems, I got silence from Attorney Turnage Young. Could it be that they didn't want to offend their corporate foundation donors by going after LAUSD et al? Or might it have actually been the greatest repudiation of racist sterotypes by showing that when push comes to shove, when anybody of whatever ethnicity gets a six-figure salary, they turn momma's picture to the wall?
