[Ed. – Trying to raise children in this era of lunacy is becoming a monumental challenge to parents.]
A little more than a week after school ended in June, I ran into a friend. … [S]he had just read on a local news website that my children’s school, Rye Country Day, was a hotbed of racial animus, and she was worried that my children, whose father is black, had suffered as a result. I laughed politely and assured her that they were fine. But the more I have thought about their experience over the past year at this elite prep school in Westchester, the more I wonder whether the racialized madness that has overtaken our country will leave any of us “fine” — and the more I have come to believe that these schools are, in fact, beset by racism. It’s just not the kind of racism they think.
