Hidden prejudices?

I noticed once again that The Bee, in its penchant for yellow journalism, has printed yet another negative article about Fresno High School. I am referring to the article on gang related colors [Dec. 17].

During the past five years test scores have increased every year at Fresno High. Has The Bee written an article pointing out that Fresno High is the only high school in Fresno to have such consecutive increases? No! The Bee has given scant attention to the International Baccalaureate Program at Fresno High, but not to the degree it deserves, considering it is the most prestigious and rigorous academic program in the world.

Maybe The Bee, with its middle-class editorial board, has economic and racial prejudices that it is not even aware of.
