quote: I've always been very concerned about what would happen to the enthusiasm of the northside(white) Neville community if they were to get a black head football coach and black principal........and how more white flight from the school would change the northside. I've got to give to the Neville alumni and business community for supporting the school and football program to prevent it from going the way Wossman went thus far.
Both of Neville's #2 and #3 administrators are black and nobody would have a problem with either one of them being principal. Both have been at the school 25-30 years. The #3, Coach Rankins, has been there since the early 70's and was the first black teacher at Neville. Those 2 are the disciplinarian's and are a huge reason the school is run so well.
This whole white-flight BS has had little to zero effect on Neville at all. When I was in school 15 years ago the demographics were about 70-30 black to white. Since then our enrollment has increased and the demographics have trended toward an equal split. It will continue that way once Neville goes Charter and is out of the hands of the MCSB. The MCSB and their BS is what's keeping alot of parents from sending their kids to Neville.
I too wonder what would happen if WM were to hire a black principal or HC but I don't think I have to worry about that happening anytime soon. Heads would roll.

You neville clowns will never pass up a chance to take a cheap shot at WM. Not one WM fan in this thread said one negative thing about neville. Then like the typical clowns you folks are, you start bashing WM.
Haters gonna hate. Deal with it clown, neville has been second fiddle to WM for well over 15 years and will continue to be for many decades to come. Its the new norm. Get used to it.
