I believe that this entry is slanted to the left. Too much talk of white discrimination. Just wrong on the facts. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:10, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
if you have evidence from reliable sources that the article is 'wrong on the facts', then show us these facts, and we will have something to go on. AndyTheGrump (talk) 22:23, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
It's interesting that you say he must provide a reliable source to verify that it's incorrect. I believe it should be the other way around. If someone is going to write an article, the onus should be on them to provide reliable sources to prove what they are writing is correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:21, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Many parts of this article are slanted slightly to the left. Nowhere is it made clear in this article that "white flight" was almost completely driven by many government policies, and the private sector responses to these policies. It has become almost universally accepted to think that white flight is just something that occurred due to white's fear of minorities. More likely is it simply people acting in their own economic self interest after government policies have dramatically altered the cost/benefit calculation for millions of individuals and businesses (Duany, Plater-Zyberk, & Speck, 130). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Josephfryar (talk • contribs) 00:34, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
The general tone is slanted. It implies that white flight is due to white folks who irrationally fear blacks and immediately move out of a neighborhood. There is not an even-handed description of other causes, such as increased rates of violence in public schools with rising minority and low-income populations, or government policies such as Section 8 housing subsidies that allow lower-income, usually minority families to move into neighborhoods and increased crime rates that often go along with that. Saying those sorts of things smacks of racism and white people are afraid to say them publicly, but it is reality in the US. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:56, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
This entry is a perfect example of why so many people have zero trust in what they read on wikipedia. Completely one sided. Yeah, you cite "facts", but only partial facts that point in the direction you like. It's ashame. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:55, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

97% immigrant children in Norwegian schools.
There's a question/concern "flag" attached to the mention of certain school classes consisting of 97% immigrant children, doubting the reliability of the source. This ought to be a pretty reliable source: http://www.nettavisen.no/nyheter/article3321919.ece. (That's in Norwegian, obviously, but Google translate is your friend.) The source (Nettavisen.no) has its own page on Wikipedia and I see nothing about it that would inspire lack of confidence. I'm going to take the liberty of removing the "[unreliable source?]" flag. As they say, truth is the best defense against libel and I infer from this that the truth is inviolable by such contingencies as political correctness. [Sorry about the double post -- not sure how that happened.] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs)
That second just sounds like it's describing emigration in general, not specifically white flight. Moving to a warm-weather place to retire is not white flight. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:39, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

(68) should read early 1990's as I was a teacher there 1990 to 1993 and went through all the declining teacher number trauma due to white flight. ZONING LAWS WERE CHANGED IN 1990, then white flight began!! signed Grant Elmsly
Not done: as your personal memories are not verifiable, you must cite reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article. - Arjayay (talk) 11:13, 26 June 2016 (UTC)
