Mill Valley, in the oh so diverse Bay area, is a perfect example. While most white flight in the 60s and onwards was fleeing from supposedly lower educational standards (inflicted on white children by being forced to be in the same classroom as African American children!), most white flight in the bay area is from the supposedly higher education standards of Asians and Indians and their “narrow educational focus” and “lack of extracurricular activities”. It’s true, why have your children do something boring like study when the white parents can simply bribe, cheat or legacy their kids into top colleges.

No wonder white people end up as fragile racists with 0 grit or resilience, which is constantly being demanded of educationally underserved African American and LatinX kids.

I stop to miau to cats.
