Forty years after the Supreme Court's Brown vs. Board of Education decision supposedly marked the death watch of segregation in America's schools, race politics continues to run like an unbeatable virus through the campus. And if there's a way to take "Frontline's" season premiere, the 150-minute "School Colors," as a mirror on today's typical high school, the virus has produced racism's evil twin: tribalism. What makes matters worse is that Berkeley High, in California, is no typical campus.

Some University of Southern California alumni on Monday accused a Newport-Mesa Unified School District board candidate of sending a last-minute campaign mailer that misrepresents their alma mater and wrongly implies that USC endorses her candidacy. But candidate Jo Ellen Allen of Corona del Mar defended the mailer, which was done in the school colors of cardinal red and gold and went to hundreds of USC alumni living in the Newport-Mesa enrollment area of Newport Beach and Costa Mesa.

Fourth-grader Tiffany Duke said she was happy to hear her teacher announce that bullying would be strictly punished. Kathy Duncan is thrilled that her sixth-grade son will be placed in a regular class this year instead of separated with other special education students. And even though 9-year-old Jodeth Orellana said she was unprepared for multiplication problems on her first day of school, her father was impressed by the rigor. "That's what I want: The kids have to be challenged," William Orellana said after dropping his daughter off at school Tuesday.

A San Diego company said it has been producing condoms in the blue and gold school colors of UC Berkeley and selling them in the Bay Area city. "For many people, there is still a stigma attached to buying condoms," explained Nick Fogel, the owner of the College Condoms company. "I want it to be just as natural as buying aspirin." He compared buying condoms in the school colors to "buying a beer mug or pennant with the school emblem on it."

Olympic sports fans who happen to need their teeth straightened can choose braces that offer a combination of blue, black, red, yellow and green colors--the hues of the Olympic rings. The American Assn. of Orthodontists says wearers can now choose braces with a variety of colored elastics and ligature ties. Elastics are small rubber bands sometimes used with braces. Ligature ties are used to help secure an archwire to brackets attached to the teeth.

Santa Susana High School is ready to show its true colors. As soon as students and staff pick them. Simi Valley's new performing arts and technology magnet school has been without a mascot or school colors since opening in September, but that is about to change. On Wednesday, the school community will decide how best to represent itself. In keeping with the school's somewhat nonconformist mission, the choices are a bit unusual. For the school's main color, the choices are teal or turquoise.

The cinder-block locker room is little bigger than a gas-station restroom. Squeeze in 15 high school hockey players and their sweat-soaked equipment, and it smells about the same too. Yet Megan Browning, the team's freshman goalie, can't think of any place she'd rather be. "Just because you play hockey doesn't mean you have to act like a boy," Browning explains as she checks her makeup and adjusts the twin braids in her hair. "I wear pink. I'm still girly. But when I come to the rink, I get intense.

It's March, which means that even the Lakers' playoff push has to take a temporary backseat to the NCAA tournament. The players are breaking out the brackets, talking trash, going through the highs and lows in the office pool. Devean George looked more upbeat than we've seen him in weeks after a successful first day of tournament picks. The usually approachable Luke Walton cast a wary eye at reporters the day after his beloved Arizona was dumped in the first round.

Yet another reporter comes to ask questions, so Joey Harrington interrupts his lunch, answering patiently while sneaking bites from a sandwich. Everyone wants to know about the poster. Even Harrington finds it hard to believe. The University of Oregon quarterback smiles as he recalls how athletic department officials approached him with the idea of draping his picture on the side of a building in New York City. It would be big, they said. Really big. He thought they were joking.

It's bad enough that virtually no one remembers the name Santa Susana--Simi Valley's new performing arts and technology magnet high school that replaced Sequoia Junior High. What's worse is that the nearly 2-month-old school is still without a collective identity--a mascot to rally around and school colors to wear with pride. But students, teachers, parents and administrators are working on that.

Matthew Emerson was a little bored last summer. So, when he saw an advertisement in the Costa Mesa High School newsletter looking for students interested in designing a Web site for the school, he designed a prototype. It took him three days. Michael Lawrence, the English teacher at Costa Mesa High School who placed the ad and oversees the Web site project, was impressed. He immediately made Matthew, 13, the lead designer on the Web site, which made its official debut Monday.
