I want to comment on the

I want to comment on the racism issue brought up by the NAACP. My children attend Snipes Academy, went there last year as well. We had to apply for the lottery because we are not districted for Snipes. They are 3 of only 50-60 white children in the school of about 300-400. I encourage my children to embrace the diversity of the school. All magnet schools are not segregated. Bringing negative attention teaches our children it is ok to notice color of skin. I urge my children to base opinions on character, not race. So please research your fight before you begin it. It brings negative attention to a school that needs support of the parents, community, and community leaders. It is a wonderful school with excellent teachers. To bring that tyoe of attention to the school only causes it to look worse than it really is.
