President Barack Obama told a gathering at Georgetown University on Tuesday that the problem isn’t racial segregation, it’s wealth segregation, manifested by “elites” who “are able to live together, away from folks who are not as wealthy.”
“Kids start going to private schools,” he said. (Just as he did and his own kids do.)
Once upon a time, the president noted, a banker lived in “reasonable proximity” to the school janitor; the janitor’s daughter may have dated the banker’s son; they may have attended the same church, rotary club, and public parks — “all the things that stitch them together…contributing to social mobility and to a sense of possiblity and opportunity for all kids in that community.”
