    How is this constitutional? I thought we got rid of segregation. If my city wants to start a school for all the kids who belong to an ethnic minority, is that okay now?

    There's just something wrong with this.

    Oh well, most of you will probably think it's a good idea, and make silly arguements about "the kids being beaten in the other schools." Yeah, here's my premptive response: the black boys and girls went through hell when they started going to the "white" schools too. Remember the Little Rock Nine?

    These kids shouldn't get their own school.
    Away.

    Without wanting to sound racist, I think that minorities get a lot of special treatment. I never had slaves, so I don't think my tax money should go towards repaying our debt to African-Americans. They were never the slaves themselves, so I don't think they should be getting any more tax dollars than anybody else.

    As long as people are not forced to go to one school or the other, it's not unconstituional, but if one group is forced to go to one school or forced not to go to another, then you're right it's out of line.

    Just remind youself: God must love stupid people because he made so many. Yeah we got rid of segregation, but there are still idiots out there.

    I'd be curious to see what tax dollars "repay our debt". I can't think of any.

    edit: Unless you listen to Al Sharpton, who's a ..........ing moron.

    Are the straight kids allowed to attend? (just making the argument and showing how it's a form of segregation, albeit an unconventional one)
    Away.

    I got an answer:
    Don't worry 'bout it.

    It's not like a christian is going to join a satanic church or otherwise. It's not like a person who is against public nudity is going to join a nudist community. Just don't worry about it. If they want their place where they can feel safe from the outside world, let it be. Why would you WANT to join a gay school, unless you really were gay? Use your head, sillwy! Nothing is stopping you from making a straight school for straight people. If the gays fuss at you for it, just ask them why they would want to join a straight school, and tell them that they have a school of their own too.

    You can't tell me you're mad at kids who have all-boy or all-girl clubs?

    I agree with you entirely. Well except this line. This could never happen without major court cases resulting.

    This reminds me of the big stinks made over private golf clubs not letting in women or black people. I for one support a private institutions rights to descriminate.

    Well, then the gay school should be faced with the same things.

    What if straight people were a minority?

    I didn't read the article beforehand. It's publicly funded? It's a public school?!?!?! That's BS!

    Give it 2 weeks before a straight kid wants to go there and they have to let him in. It won't be around long.

    edit: and the answer to the question in the thread title is "You are freaking dreaming"

    What amazes me is this. I don't know much about this exept what I have learned in school and i got this. Black steriotypes are all bad for the most part. If I was to say the majority of crime is commited by black youth I would be called a racist. As a matter of fact that is a statistic though. They hate racism but they bring race into everything. If we want people to stop being segregated and racist why do we have hate crime laws? So if I was to hit someone black or Mexican or whatnot I hate the entire race now? I'm a simple person. I don't think of people as black, white, tan, blue (Although a blue person might catch my attention). Color isn't something that should be brought into everything. Blacks shouldn't bring up slave reperation all the time. It happened but we didn't do it. Are we responcible for what your cousin owes on a car? No. We need to have one of everything. 2 types of schools. Religious and public. Private schools in my opinion shouln't be allowed. What gives them the right to a better education? They have the money! Shouldn't the poor child get the better education so he can make money? Guess he should get a poor education because he is poor. I guess it is natural to dislike or be weary of something different. I personally don't think that racism will one day just drop. It is natural for this.

    Thats just my 2 cents (Probably more than 2 :P)

    Im glad some one else finaly said it.

    If its a private school we have nothing. Hopefully enough people will get ........ed off and do something about it. Thats just encouraging kids to be gay. Something most people arent for.

    Very, very few do.

    Right, and we shouldn't have colleges, either?

    > Thats just encouraging kids to be gay

    Now you're not even trying.

    Whilst that statistic may well be true, it infact has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with environment. So a more meaningfull and appropriate statistic is one which demonstrates the link between poverty/lack of education and crime.

    The reason you might get labled racist is that you might be seen to be implying there is some intrinsic link between race and crime. Ie. that somehow being black of its own accord makes you more likely to commit crime - which if bollocks.

    Color isn't something that should be brought into everything.
    Agreed, but we live in world where minorities NEED protection because like or not lots of people are STILL prejudiced $$$$$$$s.

    Blacks shouldn't bring up slave reperation all the time
    I don't know anything about this, so i won't comment.

    I guess it is natural to dislike or be weary of something different. I personally don't think that racism will one day just drop. It is natural for this
    1) Natural != good.
    2) Racism WILL "drop" because its based on NOTHING, skin colour is meaningless, it is no more relevent than eye colour or hair colour or anything else.

    Racism stems from ignorance, and ignorance can be defeated by education.
