I've said it before...They have an issue with Black kids at Mater Dei...It's clearly their motivation...Sad really...
And the really sad thing is I don't think any of these people posting this crap have stepped foot on Mater Dei's campus recently. If they had, they would see how diverse the student body is at Mater Dei. If MD wanted to, they could fill up that school with rich white kids from New Porsche Beach, CDM, HB, etc. all paying full tuition w/o having to deal with funding a substantial annual financial aid program. But, that's not the mission of the school and over 1/2 of the students get some financial aid.
What I find comical is this fantasy that MD is going to get kids playing football from schools that don't even offer tackle football anymore. BTW, I say this as a parent of a "local parochial school" kids. Our school has not offered tackle football since we have been there in 2009. Also, one of the longtime teachers told me there are not enough kids at the local Catholic schools to fill up all the Catholic high school's openings. They said the local Catholic schools get the first look, but, MD, and all the other Catholic high schools have to get kids from other areas to fill up the enrollment.
Times have changed in youth sports and "clubs" now handle the youth sports that were handled by the local Catholic schools back in the 70's, 80's, 90's.
