Default School Diversity

In today's NY Daily News, NY schools, especially NYC have the lowest percentage of racial diversity in the country - I can't see how it beat Detroit, but what do I know.
19 of 32 school districts had less than 10% white students and overall NYC's 1.1 million student population is 85% minority - so exactly where are they supposed to get the white kids from to make it a diverse student body?
Maybe we should bus them in from the Midwest?

Is it really a policy of segregation if almost all of the people with school age kids who live there are minorities?

Diversity doesn't include white people.

How can 85% be the minority?
