Buttigieg Says He 'Was Slow To Realize' South Bend Schools Were Segregated

“I have to confess that I was slow to realize ― I worked for years under the illusion that our schools in my city were integrated because they had to be because of a court order,”

...

Buttigieg’s remarks come as he struggles to gain Black supporters. His campaign has resonated far more with white supporters in the early primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

1. Since the article was apparently heavily edited without noting just what the edits were

 

it is hard to comment on the very misleading headline. I was at that event. I heard what he said, and no he didn't say his city schools weren't desegregated he said the county's weren't as the story points out.

2. Except the campaign isn't denying the accuracy of the quote.

 

But thanks for playing.

10. +100000

 

another dodgy edited hit job

Buttigieg added that while there was integration “within the limits of the South Bend community school district ... if you looked at the county, almost all of the diversity of our youths was in a single school district.

Indiana law specifies that school districts are independent of cities and mayors’ offices. South Bend schools are governed by the South Bend Community School Corporation, which has a board of publicly elected members.

Though the school system was officially desegregated in 1981 by way of a legal agreement reached in federal court, some of its most integrated schools were permanently shuttered, and students were bused to other locations.


snip

A spokesperson for Buttigieg’s campaign told HuffPost on Monday that “it’s not just about making sure schools within a district are diverse but about examining how school districts are drawn.”

To remedy the issue, the candidate has proposed a federal pre-clearance policy for any proposed changes to district boundaries to ensure they don’t “further concentrate white students or minority students in separate school districts,” the spokesperson said.

4. This is where Pete's inexperience hurts

 

He made mistakes as mayor as any newbie local leader will do. The difference is by the textbook you're supposed to show you learned from your mistakes of the past by making things better as you climb the ladder. He's not trying to climb the ladder though - he's trying to jump to the top in one go.

I'm not a fan of the expression "on the job training" but in his case the criticism is valid because if you couldn't see the problems in town, how can we trust you with the whole country.

15. The "misleading" quote isn't being denied by the campaign.

 

They're trying to argue around it without actually addressing the issue.

Just like you are.
