    Sacremento is getting people from the Bay Area. Even if it's still in the state, so same taxes, the housing is probably half the cost and you could drive in every other week for a face-to-face meeting if needed.

      I'd have thought Sacramento was already sky high.

      • I wonder if Louisville could be a Black Renaissance, like Atlanta, DC, Memphis, Baltimore, Charleston, Richmond, Charlotte: black middle class / upper middle class moving in and displacing poor blacks (and whites)?

        Actually, could Milwaukee?

        Racism shot through the roof when poor whites realized educated blacks are above them on the social scale now.

          Not exactly.

          The findings presented in this report do not paint a flattering portrait of high school graduation for public schools in the United States.

          The national graduation rate is 68 percent, with nearly one-third of all public high school students failing to graduate.

          Tremendous racial gaps are found for graduation rates.
          o Students from historically disadvantaged minority groups (American Indian, Hispanic,
          Black) have little more than a fifty-fifty chance of finishing high school with a diploma.
          o By comparison, graduation rates for Whites and Asians are 75 and 77 percent nationally.

          The Urban Institute / Education Policy Center Who Graduates?
          Males graduate from high school at a rate 8 percent lower than female students.
          Graduation rates for students who attend school in high poverty, racially segregated, and urban
          school districts lag from 15 to 18 percent behind their peers.
          A great deal of variation in graduation rates and gaps among student groups is found across regions of the country as well as the states.

              Let's just take the main ways:

              1) The only clause that even mentions urban specifies "high poverty, racially segregated, and urban school districts," which you can read either as a logical AND in which case it's not representative of urban districts or a logical OR in which case urban districts are one of several underperforming environments which implies that it isn't the rebuttal you think it is.

              2) You know that black and brown lower graduation is a function of poverty and racism, right? The thing that comes to my mind is how mind-bogglingly lame rural whites who also don't graduate must be to fail despite a lack of those impediments.

              3) Unlike Pigs Knuckle, cities are heterogeneous. Even flyover cities are heterogeneous. There's a reason tier 1 colleges are inundated with urban blue staters whereas not so much from Cletus and Nadine red staters. I believe when you are grousing about Negroes with loose pants you would call this "a destructive local culture." The white ghetto of Jesusfuckistan is every bit as education-averse as its more celebrated urban black equivalent, with the added sting in the tail that the paletards didn't have to fight systemic and personal bigotry -- they blew it all on their own.

              And Christ, at least the Bronx created Hip Hop. The fuck did Farmtopia ever produce aside from a few bovine low brow Q reps and some admittedly very high quality meth?

                How did you come to that? We know that the racial makeup of urban vs. suburban vs. rural areas are all quite different. The Urban Institute, source of the linked doc, isn’t exactly GQP supporters.

                  The Urban Institute is not supporting your argument. It's talking about how blacks get the shaft in education. It isn't talking about cities. The UI could just as easily be talking about poor rural Black Belt schools. What it isn't talking about is the rich AF urban schools where everybody not only graduates but punches their ticket to Snobby 18th Century New England Bucolic College (whites) or Perfect Teeth California Wealth Incubator U (Asians).

                  Unless you're being even more dumb and just saying black equals cities. Which, I dunno, maybe that's the view from Cider Sweat Holler.

                    • I needed a laugh today

                      “Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) has what he calls a “simple and common sense” demand for the 50 states: reject the federal stimulus money signed into law by President Biden on Thursday.

                      But in sending a letter to the country’s governors and mayors, Scott created an enemy that he didn’t expect: Gov. Ron Desantis (R) of his own state, who on Monday lashed out at Congress for failing to give Florida enough.”

                            Zoom court hearing in Michigan of a woman who was allegedly assaulted by her boyfriend. There is obviously a no contact order. It becomes clear that the boyfriend is violating the order by being in the room next to his girlfriend. Prosecutor notices it and tells the judge. Judge asks where they are both zooming from and they give different addresses. Judge asks the boyfriend to prove it but the boyfriend denies it. Cops show up and arrest him.
