(Wade in the water plays softly in the background)


Long story short - - Samantha Bee's husband: former Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones,  spoke against the rezoning of PS 452 at a public hearing this year.  PS 452 is where their children go to school. PS 452 is 3/4 white and Asian even though the area is only about 40% of the aforementioned races.  PS 452 is currently over capacity. all of these problems could be solved - - in a big city fashion - - if they relocated PS 452 to a location in front of some housing projects 16 blocks away.  I wonder why there's opposition?  After all - - it is current year - - and Samantha Bee is a profound anti-racist.
What could liberal New Yorkers have against po black children?

One P.S. 452 parent speaking out against the move is comedian and former Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones, who’s married to Samantha Bee. "To portray any opposition as classist or racist is as bad as it can get," Jones told WNYC. And elsewhere: "We are not divided,” he said at a public hearing about the proposal, “we are absolutely united in wanting what's best for our children," then encouraged fellow parents not to talk to the press about the controversy.

A particularly insightful part of this article included mayor De Blasio's comments about school rezoning-- he went so far as to talk about considering parents real estate Investments when it came time to rezone schools.

New York City has an integration problem. This is nothing new, of course; the supposedly most diverse city in the world has long had some of the most segregated schools in the country, and that’s saying something.

In recent months, the city’s battle over school segregation has played out in a few specific schools in some of the its fastest-gentrifying (or already gentrified-to-saturation-point) neighborhoods: Nikole Hannah-Jones chronicled the Brooklyn version of the saga in her much-discussed New York Times Magazine piece last weekend, “Choosing a School for My Daughter in a Segregated City,” about her decision to send her black daughter to a mostly minority school, only to have that school rezoned to include an affluent, predominantly white population.

The Upper West Side is another place where the “rights” of rich parents are being pitted against the reality of the neighborhood’s demographics. The current battleground is the sought-after P.S. 452 on West 77th Street, a stone’s throw from the Museum of Natural History.

Like so many public schools in New York City, P.S. 452 has a lopsided enrollment, with a population that’s three-quarters white and Asian, with only 13 percent of kids qualifying for free lunch, in a district that’s 43 percent white and Asian and 48 percent low-income, according to a Chalkbeat story on the brewing controversy.

P.S. 452, which opened in 2010 to relieve overcrowding in other nearby sought-after schools, quickly became overcrowded itself. And so the city proposed moving the school, which currently shares a building with two other schools, 16 blocks south, to a site with more space that happens to be just adjacent to large housing projects. In one swoop, the city could solve the school’s capacity problem while improving its diversity.

But of course, in an as-if-scripted repetition of the integration fights that have gone down since the birth of busing, many current P.S. 452 parents are up in arms against the proposal. After all, didn’t they buy their expensive Upper West Side domiciles precisely for the right to attend this fabulously high-performing school? That, at least, is the argument getting the most airtime.

Bill de Blasio, the great white hope of progressivism when he was elected—the guy who’s married to a black woman, after all—has stumbled when it comes to integrating schools, on the Upper West Side and elsewhere. From the Chalkbeat story:

The mayor has expressed support for school diversity, but he also has said the city must respect parents’ real-estate investments (a statement that at least one P.S. 452 parent repeated this week), while Chancellor Carmen Fariña has warned against forcing integration “down people’s throats.”



Isn't that last line cute? A woman with a tilde in her last name is cautioning against forcing integration down people's throats.  Only in New York City.

I did a little bit of background reading on the situation - - the Article's from July - - but they still haven't resolved the situation

White and Asian people need to do what Hispanics do...demand ESL for their telephonically North American children, which becomes defacto segregation.

Samantha Bee is a shitty comedian on tbs that lives in a nice neighboorhood of NYC. NYC wants to move her kid's really nice public school next to a housing project to take in more students.

Her and the rest are the parents are fighting it, the sanctimonious bunch they are.



She needs to be meme'd off tv, the damn racist alt-left nazi.

Alet! Alet!

The right-wing diversity squad has been activated by the mayor!
People have started making hash tag terms and all that jazz.
Hopefully, if Kek wills it, they can put her show down into the toilet - - ratings-wise - - within a month or two.
I have confidence in them though - - they're the people who got Trump elected.

An additional cute anecdote - - her husband, Mr. Jones, was supposedly on Gavin McInnes' podcast talking about how he sent his kids to public school.  Mr. Mcinnis - - quite correctly - - called him out for this, saying that the kind of public school that he would be sending his kids to would not be typical for most people.

I don't know who Samantha Bee or Jason Jones are. However, I do know that, generally speaking, you don't send your kids to public school in NYC.

And, it's been that way for decades. (Hell, my mother grew up in Manhattan in the 50's, and she didn't go to public school.)

my wife and I have done without alot of things in life that we planned on orginally until our son was born 16 years ago. not sending him to Daycare and sending him to the best Private Schools in Tulsa has paid off 100x over. not just the quality of the education, but the quality of the kids, teachers and parents makes it all worthwhile.

You would be surprised. In that neighborhood, half the kids in public are from millionaire families. I was just reading that Louie CK has his daughter ride the subway to school so that she will not be spoiled. I know which school and he is nowhere near the wealthiest or most successful parent. It is rather nice for the PTA when a parent can write a $10k check without hesitating.

I worked in the area in question.  That area of NYC is quite affluent, with lots of celebrities and wealthy people living in close proximity of the school.

I'm sure this won't be a topic on any of the Daily Show spinoff productions.

Every time a racist liberal celebrity gets called out for being racist, they'll just claim it's for 'security reasons' or that they don't want their childrens' celebrity to distract the other students.

Apparently other wealthy white and asian kids aren't distracted by celebrity.

Actually, John Oliver did point out school segregation in NYC on his show. He pointed out how liberals are hypocrites on this matter. He did a whole segment about segregation in public education.

That has drastically changed in the last couple of decades, schools that were primarily full of "rich & diverse" children are now full of well to do White kids. I grew up in Bklyn NY (Greenpoint & Williamsburg) & went to private school, the public schools in my area were literally prisons where they gave books to the inmates , even though the area was mostly white, they filled the schools with rich & diverse population. Now the area is much less diverse & much more expensive to live in than it was when I grew up, full of white liberal hipsters, I own some high end rental properties there & all my tenants send their children to public school. Most of the private schools have been forced to close down due to lack of students.

The funny part about all this is that liberal douche bag states have schools that are exponentially more segregated that the South. Yet, they love to talk about how progressive and tolerant they are.

Of America’s 25 most racially segregated metropolitan areas, just five are in the South; Northern cities — Detroit, Milwaukee and New York — top the list. Segregation in Northern metro areas has declined a bit since 1990, but an analysis of 2010 census data found that Detroit’s level of segregation, for instance, is nearly twice as high as Charleston’s.
