Black Harvard Students
Want Their Own Graduation

Associated Press, by Collin Binkley

Posted By:Ribicon, 5/19/2018 12:18:35 AM

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

Comments:
Imagine a whites-only pre-graduation ceremony where they issue white hooded robes, which then are be worn to the main graduation ceremony to underscore their white pride. Meanwhile, students at the so-called HBCUs have been seen to sport T-shirts with the motto, "The blacker the college, the sweeter the knowledge." Not racist at all, they say; only "white privilege" is real, and taught in these same schools to remind them that white people are evil.

They go to one or the other. And next year a vote should be taken as to whether to have one or two graduations. The two would mean all blacks go to the one, and all whites to the other. Like it or not. I do believe it is because of Obama that blacks want to separate themselves and at the same time be all inclusive. Thanks Big Zero. You are so dumb.

I guess they can all get to this reverse discrimination event on the Rosa Parks Memorial Bus Lines. Remember when discrimination was the biggest thing that needed to be ended and how Dr Martin Luther King was the biggest force out there fighting for all men were created equal and how we should be known by the content of our character and not the color of our skin. Seems that was all a big waste of time. They all get a Masters Degree in Racism.

What achievements? They are accepted to Harvard based on artificially low standards and will go through life wondering if they are good enough to make it through on their own volition like Whites and Asians do. How much of their tuition is subsidized? When you take shortcuts in life and are proud of that it´s like winning a Marathon by cutting across the course. Or in their terms it´s like winning a basketball game by having your basket set at six feet high.

My father and his family suffered under the immensely racist anti Irish San Francisco Creepozoids back in the day. Where are my reparations, hmmmmm?? All of my brothers and sisters (and there are a lot of us) are irreparably and forever damaged. Just because we all put our noses to the grindstone, pulled on our bootstraps, and took the bull by the horns (nurses, doctors, lawyers, teachers, administrators, husbands, wives) doesn´t mean we shouldn´t receive tax free reparations from here to eternity. Our grandchildren and great grandchildren should not suffer from hysterical historicism from hydrocarbons.

Harvard is late to the party. My state university has been doing a separate event for two decades.
I have to say that I am amused by the kente cloth hood, so that we know they are of African descent. They show that by their negritude.

Racist. btw, some Black students are accepted to Harvard because they are Black and based on merit. After all the fuss and billions and billions of dollars spent, there is about the same percentage of able Black students today as there were decades ago (due in part no doubt to the long failing inner city schools and the destruction of the nuclear Black family thanks to LBJ&Co.). Anyway, each fine school fights like crazy to convince the able to attend their institution. Then the schools have to accept students who they likely wouldn´t otherwise accept to complete their unacknowledged quotas.

If they want to wear African kente cloth, perhaps they should hold their graduation in Africa. And then stay there. I recommend Chad.

Many students don´t actually graduate, but they allow them to "walk" anyway.

There´s nothing mandating a school graduation ceremony. The "thing" handed to a graduate is a blank sheet of paper, not their actual diploma. The ones who earned a diploma receive it via USPS or FedEx in a few weeks.

Believe me, University Faculty and Staff would prefer to not go through this stuff every semester.

They´ve been wearing this Kente cloth, which is a joke, for some time. Identifying with Africa is a losing proposition, since there´s nothing great about that continent, or its inhabitants. Were it up to me, I´d make every university student who identifies with this slavery B.S. to go on a pilgrimage to the "dark continent" for a full year before they can graduate. If they survive it, they will no doubt prefer to wear an "Old Glory" patch across stage, instead of some obscure and ambiguous "Kente" cloth.

#33, I had a similar thought, which was:

Wouldn´t there be a howl if some of the white students insisted on holding an ´all white´ graduation ceremony..... at the same time (but at a different location) to mirror the ´all black´ one?
I can hear the Lamestream media condemning those ´White Racists´ already.

Urine trouble now. FDNY fire marshals arrested a squatter who sparked a massive blaze in Staten Island, urinated on the flames in an attempt to put out the fire, then ran off without telling anyone when that plan failed, sources and officials said Tuesday. Hector Meza, 40, was staying inside a building on Stuyvesant Place near Wall St. in St. George when he accidentally knocked over a candle about 5:15 p.m. on June 6, according to authorities. The flames spread and grew to a three-alarm inferno that ripped through several buildings on the commercial block. Meza bolted and never alerted

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Tuesday that the U.S. is pulling out of the United Nations’ main human rights body because of longstanding complaints the panel is biased against Israel. “For too long, [the U.N. Human Rights Council] has been a protector of human rights abusers and a cesspool of political bias,” Ms. Haley said in announcing the move during a joint appearance at the State Department with Mr. Pompeo. “Regrettably,” she added, “it is now clear that our call for reform was not heeded.” The move comes a day

A deranged straphanger sucker-punched a subway conductor in Brooklyn on Tuesday — the latest in a recent string of assaults on MTA workers. The unidentified man socked a Q train conductor after his Brighton Beach-bound train pulled into the Prospect Park station at 11:54 a.m., MTA officials said. The rider was acting erratically while aboard the train, according to a witness, who said the lunatic got off at Prospect Park and, without warning, reached through a window and struck the middle-aged conductor in the head before fleeing the station.

A woman brandishing a 10-inch kitchen knife allegedly screamed “I want to kill all you Jews” as she chased a group of children who had just left a synagogue in north London. Police arrested a 47-year-old woman on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence after she was tackled by neighbourhood watch volunteers in Stamford Hill, which is home to Europe’s largest Hasidic Jewish community. She is said to have run after a group of around 14 children aged between eight and 13 on Sunday night while shouting antisemitic abuse. (Snip) “This is another worrying incident of knife crime

Tronc is dead, long live Tribune!

Wichita, Kan. — A federal judge has ruled Kansas cannot require proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote, a setback for Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach in a case with national implications for voting rights. U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson sided with voters Monday that Kansas cannot require people who register to vote to provide documents such as a birth certificate, U.S. passport or naturalization papers. The decision in a couple of consolidated cases makes permanent earlier temporary rulings. The judge said the Kansas requirement violates the right to vote under the Fourteenth Amendment.

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Monday at a border patrol facility in McAllen, TX on “CBS This Morning,” co-host Gayle King said the Statue of Liberty is “weeping right now” over the separating of immigrant children from their families. King said “We arrived yesterday afternoon. We went straight to the facility, the location where kids and their parents were reunited. All I can say after talking to the people, watching the people, listening to the people, that the Statue of Liberty I think is weeping right now. It’s unbelievable the stories we’ve heard.” She added, “We’re standing in front of a converted warehouse. This is

Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation. Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Sen. Charles E. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey
