~~~~Centric Schools :Queries?

For those of you who don't know, Toronto has AfriCentric Schools.  The idea was the brainchild of some African Canadian Educators. Let me say first and foremost I don't have a horse in this race.  But I will offer a few observations.

First, When the White South African Government developed Afri-Centric territories, and afri-Centric schools, etc, it was labelled Apartheid and judged bad.

But Afri-Centric Schools are judged good because it is the African Canadian parents who want to send their children to a school away from whites and learn a slightly different curriculum which focuses on African contributions more heavily than the all inclusive public paid for schools.

Question: So what the South African government should have done was not concentrate so much on pushing the Africans into Black Townships, but rather they should have focused on White-Centric Towns and Cities.  I mean if they wanted to separate themselves it would have be acceptable, right??

Now the gays are wanting Gay-Centric Schools: ((Let me just say, I don't have a horse in this race either.)Okay they are just discussing this at this point, but let's just think this through, shall we?. If conservative  straights had come up with this idea, it would have insulted someone. It would have been labelled homophobic and racist and discriminatory,  but because the Gays thought of this all by themselves, it is just a wonderful idea.  Publicly funded schools with private and special curriculum .(Gee if only we could have catholic -centric schools- oh wait, never mind that is a totally different situation, and besides when the catholic-centric schools stress being catholic, it is perfectly acceptable to threaten them with having their funding yanked-- but I am woefully digressing, ahem). 

Query:  I wonder will they allow straights in and will they be forced to have Gay-Straight Alliances and support the students' rights to not be bullied because they are straight and not LBGTTQ, or would they be advised to just be a closet straight and not rock the boat, and fear being outed as straight?

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
