That's not the appropriate comparison. This is just simply separating people into separate but equal queues for the fountains of knowledge that is our education system.

Presby is only a 5 minute drive from places where stabbings and gunshots are common. One of my mom's friends lost her son from a gunshot basically on the doorstep of Presby. There's a handful of other hospitals next door too (Magee, Mercy, Shadyside, etc). Something like this may have saved his life.
