I never said it was. The population isn't racially balanced. The school board isn't racially balanced. End of story. This point is not Rocket Science.
You should know that the term refers to ending segregation by using a balance of race similar to the local population. I used the term racial balance exactly as someone posted above as a percentage of population. Funny, this term came about in reference to ending Jim Crow laws and segregation.

Let me put it this way since you insist on going on and on about it. Its the white board members who decided that Robert High cannot be Superintendent because they have more votes. Call it racially balanced or whatever the hell you want but that's the bottom line.

And BTW, it doesn't end segregation. It just creates a token system. That's why its divided into districts rather than everybody being able to vote randomly.

Well now I agree with you on this. Whites made up a majority of the board and so whites made up a majority of the vote. There is no proof that whites made a decision based on race as you insinuated. In fact, the board president was elected by the board members. He is black so there is actually proof of the majority of whites voting in an unbiased manner as it pertains to race.

Again I agree with you. I realize segregation was not actually ended, but that was the intent. It is a token system. I would prefer voting at large. Few want to serve and it is becoming harder to have a good choice in most districts.

Popular and liked by who? So far he hasn't been popular and liked enough to get a job he's wanted for a long time. I seem to be the only one who thinks he should have been given the job. I mean you keep going on and on about jealousy but I haven't seen you support him as deserving of that position or point out anything he's done. He certainly isn't popular and liked by the people who's opinion I value the most, which would be the black community. What is it he has that YOU feel is worthy of all this jealousy that you claim? I haven't seen the popularity that you claim. Maybe you're jealous of it since you're the one who has seen it and obviously feel its something to be jealous of. You can't force your feelings on me.

You're the one who can't get him out of your head. You're the one who keeps starting threads about him. You're the one who keeps bringing him up all the time.

Maybe you are in love with him and he spurned you?

You are obsessed with him and it's either jealousy or because he rejected you.

Which is it?

Leave the man alone. He obviously doesn't want you.

And you can't force your feelings on Mr. High. Quit stalking him.

When you get confused and can't respond intelligently, respond like a fool. Are you dumb enough to think that everyone who talks about you is in love with you and stalking you? Who raised your dumb ass?

George Fisher has one vote. That's it. He doesn't head votes. Don't throw that "two blacks" thing out there as if it means anything. George has about as much power as the Aaron Jenkins has on the city council. No Robert has never been superintendent of a school district because he has devoted his life to PISD and they would never give him the opportunity. Every superintendent had to be given that first position. What the hell is "Assist Superintendent" of Human Resources? Who's the superintendent of human resources? They created that "position" for High back in 2006 or 2007 to satisfy him. His job description remained the same as it always was. How the hell can you something is racially balanced when its five whites and two blacks? Give me a break.
The way I heard it was that he couldn't handle being principal at the high school. If that's true what makes you think he could handle a whole district?

Cut it out. If Gary Preston can handle being principal, anyone can. Highs current position is supposedly higher than a principal. Paris is not exactly populated with brilliant people. Its not that difficult.

You are totally obsessed with the man!! You can't get him out of your head. there is a distinct difference in occasionally talking about someone and obsessing over him. You have been " talking about " Mr. High" for YEARS.

Again. Get over him!!

You've been talking about me for years. According to you, that means you're obsessed with me. I'll talk about whatever and whoever I wish and no idiot claiming will stop me. You don't give a damn about Robert High.

I have a brilliant idea. Clearly you are chronically unhappy and miserable. You can end your suffering and everyone's around you that has to listen to your ranting. Just get into to your tub and take a razor blade and run it down the length of your wrists repeatedly. In no time at all your suffering will be over and the world will be a better place. No one will notice but they will just sense that things are better. You can do this. I know you can.
you are right

"frunt" You should be laughing...or crying about your lack of an education. I've never sat on a porch with an illiterate redneck listening in. Robert High would have been a kid his damn self back when Gibbons was open. It was an all black school. What the hell was your dumb ass doing there?
