Certainly a stereotype, arguably racist. My assumption is, the author grew up in an entitled neighborhood. As a first generation Mexican in the Detroit public school system, I can assure you poor kids dream of an influx of resources - new uniforms & field/court for sports, and new equipment & supplies for the classroom. Rather than laying blame on "patterns in conduct" of white parents, why not focus on the opportunities lost by not embracing & collaborating? Why blame at all?

The style and depth is exactly what I've come to expect from Serial. If you're looking for Serial season 4, this may as well be it.
