    You want to apply to be a parent to these kids? Why cant these lazy parents get off thier butts and walk their children ti school. Thus is quinn trying to buy votes again Why are their no safe passage to the white nieghbor hood schools?

    Tuesday, good for you for getting involved. Chivet, your eyes are clearly closed to the issues these neighborhoods face, so not worth explaining. If you think white neighborhoods need safe passage, get off YOUR lazy ass and make it happen.

  • Stephanie, the easiest argument for those with a distorted view of the real issues-which again, when such narrow-mindedness is the framework of your opinion, it would be a loosing battle on my part to fight it. I don’t doubt the role you play as a parent, I was responding to your wondering about why there is no safe passage in white neighborhoods.
