Re: “A New Private School Heads for Manchester

The greater Richmond area is segregated by class and color lines. Look at the facts. Go to the VA DOE website and look at the statistics of our schools. Go to the Office of Community Wealth Building and read about what's going on in the East end and the entire Richmond City. Look at census data for the Greater Richmond region. Where did Creighton, Gilpin, Fairfield and Mosby Courts come from? What's happening to them
today? Let's be real about what's going on in Richmond and the surrounding counties and stop denying that there are deep seeded race and class lines. We can't move forward without honesty. Segregating low-income folks into one place can be detrimental. At the same time there can be solidarity and strength in self-selected segregation. Read "why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria?" I think it's important to keep an open mind. There are many truths.
