If you allow the average African-American that is frustrated about the public education where he lives - the INCUMBENCY of the forces that are in power over these school systems would not necessarily translate into blame or accountability.
To many of these people the redirection of focus upon the ubiquitous "lily White suburb" just outside of their grasp and the enhanced funding that they receive by comparison may have as much power as a source of explanation as to WHY their own district remains problem plagued as might be their questions about the competencies of the present administration that they have empaneled to represent their interests over the school facilities.
