Another problem with all this is that when the whites moved to adjacent areas, they took their paychecks with them, and spent them in their new areas. Now, our city has no decent funding with which to run the city. Duh!!! Don't tell me that no one even saw this coming. Look at Detroit, for one.
There is one school in our city which was originally a black school. It too was totally vacated when the equal rights movement came in. The school was transformed into a "magnet" school, where, by the way, two of my children got a good enough education to go on to college, and excel. Eventually, the black community decided that the whites had stolen their school, and wanted it back. The school board gave it back, brought in 400 "non-magnet" students
