She said a couple of things in the interview that stuck out to me and shows how disconnected from reality a lot of liberals / progressives are in
regards to their policies.
1) Better Schools: She said the motivation for moving was better schools. So in other words, she is admitting public school system is a failure.
People move so their kids can attend better school systems. For all intents and purposes this is school choice. However, because Democrats are
against school choice since they are beholden to the teachers unions she can't see the irony in this statement. Not only that, Sasha and Malia
attended Hyde Park Academy when they lived in Chicago, an elite private school.
2) Declining Neighborhood: This is the one that is funny to me. It is almost like she is admitting the white people made the community better. In
other words, when white people left the community declined. As I pointed out, for this to be true, it means that the black people that moved in had
to bring crime and other issues with them that made the neighborhood worse. Deep down, she knows this is true.
3) Upward Mobility: She acts like black people don't move to better neighborhoods. We do all the time. Most people move to communities they can
afford. I am a 1%. I live in a very diverse community, but by in large, most of my neighbors are white. However, what we share in common are
similar social values which by in large are tied to income and education.
One of the reasons the black community is in shambles is that by in large, any black person with the means available to them move out of the
community. Back in the day, it used to be it didn't matter that you were a Doctor or Lawyer, etc. You still had to live in a black neighborhood due
to segregation and racism. However, in a way, this actually was a benefit to the black community because it insured even those who were less
successful had exposure to role models.
The reality though is NOBODY wants to live around Pookie and 'Em. Black or white.
