QUOTED FROM THE HUNTSVILLE TIME:
“The board pushed the school further inside an aging neighborhood in one of the poorest areas of town, reducing the immediate chances for city growth. According to current school officials, fewer children live in the Lee zone than any of the city's other high school zones.”

FEWER CHILDREN LIVE IN THE LEE ZONE BECAUSE THE HUNTSVILLE CITY SCHOOLS BUSES IN THE BLACKS TO BOTH THE NEW CENTURY LEE HIGH AND CHAPMAN MIDDLE SCHOOLS. NOW THESE SCHOOLS ARE ALMOST 100% BLACK.

WHITE PEOPLE WON’T BUY INTO THESE NEIGHBORHOODS ANYMORE BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT THEIR CHILDREN ATTENDING THESE ALL BLACK SCHOOLS, TALKING AND ACTING LIKE BLACK GANGSTA THUG HIPHOP RAPER WANNABEES, AND COMING HOME BEAT UP BY THE BLACKS… ALL FOR TRYING TO LEARN READING WRITING AND ARITHMETIC… SOMETHING THE BLACKS THINK IS “UNCOOL”.

THE OLDER MIDDLE CLASS WHITE PEOPLE LIVING IN THE LEE ZONE ARE MOSTLY RETIRED GOVERNMENT WORKERS. THEY LOST THEIR RETIREMENT SAVINGS IN THE STOCK MARKET COLLAPSE WHEN PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH WAS ELECTED IN 1999. THEN THEY LOST EVEN MORE OF THEIR RETIREMENT SAVINGS "LOCKED" INTO THEIR HOME VALUES WHEN BUSH WAS ON HIS WAY OUT OF OFFICE AFTER BANKRUPTING AMERICA. AT THE SAME TIME HIS RICH REPUBLICAN FRIENDS WRECKED THE HOUSING MARKET IN 2008 BY SELLING THE BLACKS GOVERNMENT (AND WHITE MIDDLE CLASS TAXPAYER) BACKED LOANS ON OVERPRICED HOMES THAT THEY COULDN'T AFFORD... BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO UNEDUCATED AND CAN’T HOLD STEADY JOBS.

ONE HOUSE AT A TIME, THE OLD MIDDLE CLASS WHITE PEOPLE ARE PASSING AWAY, AND THEIR CHILDREN SELL THEIR HOMES FOR LESS THAN HALF OF WHAT THEY WERE WORTH LESS THAN FIFTEEN YEARS AGO. ALL OF THESE HOUSES ARE BEING BOUGHT DIRT CHEAP BY A SLUM LORD, AND THEN HE RENTS THEM TO THE BLACKS. HE OWNS HUNDREDS OF THEM. ONCE A BLACK MOVES IN, THE WHITES ON EITHER SIDE SELL. IT’S SLOW MOTION “WHITE FLIGHT”, AND NOW THESE NEIGHBORHOODS ARE RIDDLED WITH CRIME.

THEY NEED TO BUILD ANOTHER HALF MILLION-DOLLAR FENCE AROUND THE RAILROAD TRACKS, JUST LIKE THE ONE THEY HAD TO BUILD AROUND THE SCHOOL IN ORDER TO KEEP THE CRIMINALS IN, OR OUT, OR WHATEVER.

SO NOW YOU KNOW THE REST OF THE STORY

Good deals on houses over there. Best buys in Huntsville. I did my part to drive down housing prices.

I graduated from Lee High school in 1968 and it's disheartening to hear what's happened to the school and the area it's in. I've been gone a lot of years and apparently things have gone down hill.

Like north Huntsville all the way over to Madison Square Mall, once Chapman and Lee went black, no white people wanna come back. Who wants to live around all that black fueled armed robbery, prostitution, and drug dealing?

Not me... that's why I moved my wife and kids to Gulf Shores, where the the population is 97.54% white versus 0.22% black (per the U.S. Census). If we see a black down here, they're usually down working in the Walmart.

Crime down here would be non-existent if it weren't for the rare occasion when the blacks from Mobile come down here and rape, rob, and murder the blacks from Foley.

Had to get outta northeast Huntsville because of all the upitty A&M blacks. We had a nice 6,000 sq.ft. house overlooking The Rocket City from the side of Chapman Mountain up behind Oak Park, sold it at a loss due to them people being bused in and taking over the neighborhood schools. Crime on the "bad" side of town was too high for my family, so we moved to the Carolinas.

I'm selling my house between the new Lee High School and Chapman Middle School, and I'm moving for these exact same reasons. Someone got robbed the other day just walking down the street in front of Philpot Park. Up here buying me a new house in an all white school district this time. White neighborhood does not equal white schools.
