Liberals who talk about the need for school integration seem like they are still stuck in the 1950s, when we didn’t count Hispanics and the population was generally considered 88% white and 12% black. People imagined the ideal school being 88% white and 12% black, and being a believer in the importance of teaching middle class values, I actually concede that this situation would be beneficial to the black students because they would pick up white middle class values from the dominant white majority.
However that picture, which wasn’t even entirely realistic in the 1950s, no longer applies at all today when non-Hispanic white babies are less than 50% of the population.
Because white parents are trying ever harder to keep their children in majority-white schools, the number of whites available to liberal social engineers to integrate with minorities is actually a lot fewer than suggested by white students being almost 50% of the population. White parents will send their children to white private schools or move to whiteopias with public schools removed from the control of liberal social engineering types. An integrated school in the future will look more like 30% white and Asian, and 70% NAM. In this integrated school, the NAMs will outnumber the whites and instead of NAMs picking up white middle class values, the white students will pick up dysfunctional NAM values. The whites who attend these school will be poor prole whites and not the middle class whites with the good values, because part of those middle class values dictate that you should ensure your children attend good schools.
The vast majority of NAMs will have to attend majority-NAM schools in the future. Any other result is mathematically and socially impossible unless there is a radical reversal in demographic trends.
What I don’t know the answer to is whether liberal social engineering types will admit defeat on this issue and give up on the idea of integrated schools as a major policy goal, or will they keep at it even though it’s impossible, put in keeping at it they will force whites to move further and further away from NAMs?
