Pride High

Is there a "separate but equal" issue here?

Chicago school officials plan to recommend opening a gay-friendly campus,citing studies that homosexual high school students have greater dropout rates than heterosexual teens.


The School for Social Justice Pride Campus, if approved, would be the city's first school for gay, lesbian and transgenderstudents, The Chicago Tribune reported.

Hmmm...
Would it be a stretch to state the Blacks probably drop out of the Chicago school system at a rate higher then Whites? If so, should they set up a Black-friendly campus for the same reason?

Naw Darren, no separate but equal issues here. You're seeing things.

Rrrriigght.

Well, a supremely quick google tells me that the school would be open to all.
