White college students; US segregation

Despite more funding black US students fail and segregate

Baltimore schools spend a staggering amount of funding per student - the fourth-highest in the US - and still an investigation by Fox45's Project Baltimore revealed that not one student scored proficient on either the statewide tests for English and math in at least six city schools.

    At West Baltimore’s Frederick Douglass High, one of five high schools and one middle school not one student scored a four or a five on the state test, only one out of 185 students who took the test last year scored a three, while 165 students scored a one, the lowest possible score.

    All six schools are black. But black parents blame teachers for the terrible results. “It’s the teacher’s report card, ultimately,” says black mother Janel Nelson. Her son lost his father when he was three months old, followed by two uncles and a childhood friend, all whom were gunned down in the streets of Baltimore by the time he was 18. It is however not clear how teachers should respond to this level of violence by the community.

    Only 50 percent of students at the Frederick Douglass high school ever graduate. Nelson’s son Warren offered an explanation of why school system which spends so much money is still so ineffective. Warren provided an illuminating answer: “The tests are harder than what we’re learning in class.”

    Baltimore is one of several of American black cities, along with Chicago and Washington DC, where violent crime is once again on the rise fueled by decades of failed liberal policies and gang culture.

    At the end of April, the city had recorded 118 murders in one month, totalling a record 400 for the year. It appears that all the racial “progress” in the US has come to nought.

    For over half a century Americans have enjoyed equal protection under the law, regardless of race, and elected a President of African American descent, something that would not have been possible without the support of voters across racial spectrum.

    Meanwhile the American University in Washington, DC has reportedly banned white students from using its new “student lounge” for the spring semester, according to the College Fix.

    American University Provost Scott Bass agreed to the black students’ demands. “There’s nothing more important, in terms of my administration, than being a multicultural campus,” Bass reportedly told the student protesters. Black protesters reportedly abandoned their parking garage blockade and celebrated their “victory” to be segregated with chants of “We are AU!”

    Bass told WND that meeting the students’ demands segregation “is just a minimum” and “doesn’t stop our commitment to do more”.

    The lounge, which is called “The Bridge,” opened just six weeks ago. Darcy Frailey, associate director for facilities and other event services, told the Eagle, American University’s student news site that the lounge seats 80 people and features large working tables, comfortable sofas and chairs, coffee tables, a television and a large stage for events.

    The university is home to about 13 000 students of all races, but administrators and student activists have determined that the best way to ensure a “fair and equal environment” is to ban all white people from the lounge.

    The exclusion of white students comes just after campus officials discovered bananas hanging in nooses with the letters “AKA” and the word “Harambe” scribbled onto them. “AKA” is short for Alpha Kappa Alpha, a black sorority. The May 1 incident led to the student protest Friday that blocked traffic in a parking garage.

    The student crowd chanted “We can’t breathe,” a reference to black New Yorker Eric Garner, who died on July 17, 2014, after he was arrested by police. But the banana incident is said to have been a hoax.

    The US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia joined the FBI and campus police in the investigation of the banana incident, the Washington Post reported. The paper noted that “no arrests have been made” despite video footage of the incident being available.
