Patch: "NYC High School Sports Shut Out Black, Latino Kids: Lawsuit"

Students of those ethnicities are more than twice as likely as those of other races to attend a public high school without any sports teams due to the discriminatory policies of the Department of Education and the Public Schools Athletic League, according to the complaint filed Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court."
