No, that race of "undesirable people" were no worse than the people already living there, it was pure unadulterated racism that went to work full throttle.
No doubt, I lived in a poor neighbourhood and the schools were average. Maybe I would have had a different opinion if I had been from the other side of the tracks, I will never know.

I never scored high enough for mentally gifted but was always bored silly in advanced classes, I didn't quite fit in with how the system was designed.
