My reading of this story on various news outlets leaves me with an impression of failure. Let me explain why. The "middle class" parents who voted in this new school board to do exactly what they have done, resegreate the schools held no rallies, no marches, no press conferences. No what they did was what? Went to school board meetings, made a decision, and showed up to vote in the people they knew would vote this way.
What did black folks do? Nothing. Now our people want to get out in the streets and protest. Yet the same people are still legally sitting on that school until the end of their terms. What should've happened was that our people attended those PTA meetings and school board meetings. Now they are marching in the streets, rapping a little, and giving the local press a one day story. At the end of all this, what will change? I'm a little disappointed that we are using this as an all-in-one strategy.
