Your point still stands, but it's important to point out that PPS is measurably more diverse than the city of Portland as a whole:

Enrollment by Ethnicity / Race 2012
Asian 8.1%
African American 11.4%
Hispanic 16.2%
Native American 1.2%
Pacific Islander 0.9%
White 55.6%
Multiple Ethnicities Specified 6.7%


...and the school districts in outer east Portland, such as David Douglas, show even larger percentages of non-white students.
