It is obvious that you do not understand why African-American parents are so eager to get their children out of D.C. schools.

After all, why should they want to leave the wonderful (LOL) learning environment that defines D.C. schools?  What – you are not laughing?  I can understand your feelings.  It is sad – very sad.

I find it a bit sad that you have to use sarcasm to make your point, when you could make your point better simply by speaking plainly. The facts are pretty much these:

In the first place, civil rights are important and discrimination is very much alive these days. You're probably a white male so you probably don't have much experience or sympathy for that. I am sure that the black members of this forum could let you know something about their experiences.

Second, vouchers, thanks for bringing them up. The more money that goes to vouchers means the less money going to public schools. Rich conservatives could care less about public schools because the idea down is to get vouchers from the government to pay the hefty price tag to send their kids to rich private schools. The less students going to public schools, the more they can cut them back, which would mean bigger class sizes, less one on one attention to students, less money spent on textbooks, etc.

Education has become the new money-making scam for conservatives, no bones about it.

Finally I see now you wrote in your opening post:

For example, many – perhaps most – readers believe that those mean old conservative Republicans, Tea Party types and even Libertarians hate black people while the more liberal Democrats, Socialists and their ilk are working tirelessly for the disadvantaged – especially African-Americans.   

So this is your best example to refute that?
There is a reason those perceptions exist, mostly because they  are real. The GOP hasn't done one substantial thing for blacks in all the years I have been following them, and the Tea Party is well known for its  racist crazies
