The Daily Caller:
Black Harvard graduate students plan to host a “black-only” graduation ceremony later in May.
Approximately 125 students will participate in the ceremony, which took over a year to plan, reports the College Fix. The event is supposed to celebrate how black students have succeeded in higher education.
“This is an opportunity to celebrate Harvard’s Black excellence and Black brilliance,” Michael Huggins, a master’s student in public policy, told The Root. “It’s an event where we can see each other and our parents and family can see us as a collective, whole group. A community.”
Students raised over $27,000 to cover the cost of the ceremony and its reception. They hope to have another black-only ceremony next year that will include undergraduate students as well.
The students insist that having a ceremony just for black students isn’t a form of segregation, but a way for them to have fellowship together.
“This is not about segregation. It’s about fellowship and building a community. This is a chance to reaffirm for each other that we enter the work world with a network of supporters standing with us,” Huggins added.
Black students at Harvard have a higher graduation rate than national standards — 96 percent of the college’s black students graduate within six years, according to a 2011 report. Only 44 percent of black students graduate on a national level.
Black students at Harvard still have issues with their campus.
Harvard like the rest of the liberal leftists run collages and Universities need to be totaly defunded by 100% no more tax dollars for the brainwashers
What kind of degree is “public policy”?
It’s not segregation if liberals do it. It’s not racism if liberals do it.
So, if we want to celebrate how white students have succeeded in higher education now we can have a ‘white graduation’? And would it make it even clearer if we had separate restrooms and water fountains? What about Lunch counters, especially in Woolworths? So I guess we’ll be seeing a White Caucus in congress now?
Somehow the content of character no longer matters, it seems to only be the color of skin? Wonder what MLK Jr, thinks about that.
wonder how long it would take for 125 white students to plan a white graduation? About 30 minutes?
Let me see if I’ve got this right. They are not segregating themselves, they are only ‘having fellowship’ together. But if white students want to have fellowship with only other white students it might be so they could exclude black students? If black students only want to associate with black students, it’s fellowship. If white students only want to associate with white students, it’s racism? I think I’ve about got it.
It’s one where BS doesn’t mean Bachelor of Science. The main theme is about how to segregate the part of society that blacks want to without it being called segregation or racism.
Black grad rate at Harvard 96% within 6 years. Thank goodness for affirmative action.
Standards for college entrance have lowered to the point where the average IQ of grads has dropped.
The mission is no longer preparing the youngsters for success but to brainwash and get every dime that can be squeezed out.
Time was when lower IQ students dropped out, now keep lowering the standards and hand out worthless degrees. Was also a time when only men did took up womens studies, but there was no degree.
Now dont let coffee come out of your nose thinking how the parents saved evey dime they could to put the child through college and one of these was the major http://www.toptenz.net/to-10-useless-college-classes-degrees.php
@kitt: I agree in many ways. I think schools are becoming more about the money..tuitions going up because the govt pays for it with guar student loans, etc. Many more students are being admitted on affirmative action.
@Redteam: You wanna talk about bull shit from our resident Ivy Leaguer
“Thanks for telling me THREE TIMES I’m not under investigation.” You’re fired effective immediately-Get out.
Now THAT’S BS.
Rich Wheeler—alias Y LOL
@Y: Okay, what does the Y stand for? So since the cock crowed thrice, we can be pretty damn sure the FBI wasn’t able to find any connection between Trump and the Russians. Right? It’s a bad situation when he spends so much time trying to find something on Trump and can’t find it, but keeps trying then a ton of evidence shows up on Hillary and he closes his eyes. Hillary has committed so many crimes, it might be that Comey just couldn’t figure out which one to nail her on.
What’s wrong with firing him? He’s done 3 investigations on the Prez, can’t find anything but won’t concentrate on real law breakers. Do we need that?
isn’t that the normal way to fire someone? You don’t let them hang around, do you? What other alias’s do you use? You’re not Phulof Marlowe are you? or Greg? Notice Phulof has only one l.
Comey wouldn’t investigate leaks. He would only do the liberal bidding. It’s good that he’s gone.
@Redteam: It had to be done as it was, no notice, no time to lose boxes of Hillarys emails, huh…oh yeah Well they cant destroy laptops, huh…oh yeah. Its a good thing he arrested Huma after finding she stole classified materials.
I just cant figure out why this poor man lost his job, perhaps it was a hygiene issue or he told a woman she dressed nice one time.
Y, is your memory shot to hell as everything else is? You’re the one that said that Comey told Trump he was not under investigation. Then on that other thread, you deny it. Now I understand why you want to be incognito, you’re embarrassed.
@Redteam: Obviously that’s Trump’s quote–most certainly a lie.
Trump fired Comey because he was intensifying the investigation of Trump’s ties to Russia. Trump loved Comey when he investigated HRC–Not much when he told DT he was investigating him–pretty simple to understand RT
It’s obvious that Trump, like most bullies, is also a coward.–which foot was it Donald?
Curt gave me the “y” moniker for “Yes You are right again RW.”
@Richard Wheeler: Got any proof of your assertion? The so called investigation goes on without Comey there. Trump did not close down the FBI. So put up or shut up. NO one has given any proof of anything yet.
An FBI director serves at the pleasure of the President. He can fire him for sneezing in the oval office if he wants. Comey’s letter confirms this.
This is typical of Dems. When Bill Clinton was elected he fired around 93 US attorneys. The media was not concerned. When GWB was elected he fired about 12 and the press went wild. Clinton also fired the FBI director and the media was not concerned. Now that Trump has done nothing unusual and totally within his rights the media and people like you are in full conspiracy mode. All with no FACTS.
Lemmings just lemmings.
