So apparently, in NYC, there are schools all the way down to the Kindergarten level that are 'all gifted' (i.e., 97th percentile plus only). This isn't terribly surprising except for one thing---they're PUBLIC schools where admission is by exam. This has predictable consequences in terms of 'disparate impact', but since it is NYC, they get away with it.
Where I grew up, in Florida, if you tried this your adult:student ratio would skyrocket from all of the federal law enforcement minions that would descend, blackening the sky. But somehow, in NYC it is all kosher?
We can take from this 'prima fascist' evidence that the Left isn't about any coherent universalist ideology, but rather all about Who...Whom. In the South if you want a school like that you have to pay hardcore private school tuition and they still growl at you about 'diversity'. In the Pacific Northwest, you're still looking at hardcore tuition, but mostly a blind eye will be turned to your 'appalling lack of diversity'.
I have a dream, where one day who...whom conflicts will be settled through honest and straightforward slugfests of self-interest, free of the sanctimonious scolds who insist that everything be laundered through mendacious universalist cant. I have a dream, where anyone attempting to claim the moral high ground was scrutinized brutally, and, whenever found lacking, vigorously mocked if he was lucky. As bad money inevitably drives out good, so does counterfeit morality drive out the Real.
