"...The fact still remains that this town is segregated, and will remain so until the city does a better job of addressing the needs of its poor citizens. Instead of creating an overpriced housing market, perpetuating corporate welfare in the name of "Smart Growth," and annihilating old neighborhoods by asphalting over them so that suburbanites don't have to sit in traffic, the Austin community should be organized around the idea of building people capital through improved job training, affordable housing, and other social services for the parents of children of all ethnicities who attend schools in depressed neighborhoods...."
