(Denver) Elementary school bans white kids from tutoring
Daily Caller ^ | February 15, 2013

Posted on 02/15/2013 6:31:57 AM PST by Zakeet

An elementary school principal in the Denver suburbs told parents that white children would be excluded from an after-school tutoring initiative.

Andre C. Pearson, the principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora, Colorado sent letters home to parents informing them that only students of color are eligible for the program, KJCT, the local ABC affiliate, reports.

Some shocked parents have alleged discrimination and segregation, reports CBS Denver.

“I was infuriated,” one parent, Nicole Cox, told CBS Denver. “I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups.”

“We have come so far in all of these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally,” Cox added.

Cox is white. She has a 10-year-old daughter at the school, and she wants her daughter to have tutoring.

You Right Wing Nuts shouldn't get too excited about this story because the school changed their policy after enough parents complained ... and because it's your turn to ride in the back of the bus!

I love stories that take the basic premise of affirmative action and apply it to a wider group than simply white males; once white females were denied seats in the tutoring the program would be amended.

Most colleges and employers have barriers to white men that are tolerated/encouraged by everyone else.

Hi. I’m a white schoolteacher here in Texas more than happy to provide on-demand tutoring for your children. I have a history degree. :)

Why rely on the school?

Bill and Melinda Gates are just as guilty. Their foundation has a college scholarship programs that is closed to whites. It is the multi-billion dollars Millennium Scholars program. Only available to non-whites. So if your family immigrated from Korea or Mexico four years ago you can get one

Why is it okay to racially discriminate against white people in America?
I’m reading about the Bill Gates Millennium Scholars and here are the “RACIAL” requirements

Students are eligible to be considered for a GMS scholarship if they:

• Are African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian and Pacific Islander American, or Hispanic American;
• Are a citizen/legal permanent resident or nationals of the United States.

What about poor white children? Can you imagine if a Scholarship was created for white people “ONLY” and black people and Hispanics need not apply. I guess racial discrimination is only wrong when it’s happening to nonwhites.

The deadline for the 2010-2011 Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) application process was January 11, 2010.
3 years ago

Real simple solution, next time there is a school board election, every seat is overturned and let their replacements know exactly why and that it can happen again. Of course that takes parents that actually want to be involved.

Neo Nazis should rejoice. This proves that whites are the master race because it means there are no stupid white kids and the only ones that need tutoring are colored.

This whole situation is rather confusing. In reading about it yesterday, it appears the school board had nothing to do with it and actually stepped in an over—rode the principal who did this. In another article, it indicated the tutoring group had been started by a number of parents. So at this point - who knows exactly what is going on.

Maybe the white students and parents should demand, then, that none of the tutors will be white.

Let’s see how many they’ll get.

“50 Russian Rubles to the first person who tells me who owned the First Documented Slave in the Atlantic Colonies.”

Anthony Johnson:

“Prior to 1655 there were no legal slaves in the colonies, only indentured servants. All masters were required to free their servants after their time was up. Seven years was the limit that an indentured servant could be held. Upon their release they were granted 50 acres of land. This included any Negro purchased from slave traders. Negros were also granted 50 acres upon their release.

Anthony Johnson was a Negro from modern-day Angola. He was brought to the US to work on a tobacco farm in 1619. In 1622 he was almost killed when Powhatan Indians attacked the farm. 52 out of 57 people on the farm perished in the attack. He married a female black servant while working on the farm.

When Anthony was released he was legally recognized as a “free Negro” and ran a successful farm. In 1651 he held 250 acres and five black indentured servants. In 1654, it was time for Anthony to release John Casor, a black indentured servant. Instead Anthony told Casor he was extending his time. Casor left and became employed by the free white man Robert Parker.

Anthony Johnson sued Robert Parker in the Northampton Court in 1654. In 1655, the court ruled that Anthony Johnson could hold John Casor indefinitely. The court gave judicial sanction for blacks to own slave of their own race. Thus Casor became the first permanent slave and Johnson the first slave owner.

Whites still could not legally hold a black servant as an indefinite slave until 1670. In that year, the colonial assembly passed legislation permitting free whites, blacks, and Indians the right to own blacks as slaves.

By 1699, the number of free blacks prompted fears of a “Negro insurrection.” Virginia Colonial ordered the repatriation of freed blacks back to Africa. Many blacks sold themselves to white masters so they would not have to go to Africa. This was the first effort to gently repatriate free blacks back to Africa. The modern nations of Sierra Leone and Liberia both originated as colonies of repatriated former black slaves.

However, black slave owners continued to thrive in the United States.

By 1830 there were 3,775 black families living in the South who owned black slaves. By 1860 there were about 3,000 slaves owned by black households in the city of New Orleans alone.”

I believe that he, like a lot of whites who came here early on, was bond servant whose debt or some obligation was sold to someone for a period of time. After a period of years the bond was considered to be paid and the person was free of their committment. A lot of people white and black came here under those conditions in the early years. There were a number of people on the Mayflower who were bond servants.

Why didn’t this half-breed scumbag marry a black man?

Then it wouldn’t have been a problem would it.

I don’t have a problem identifying her as black and I do my bet never to see one of her movies because of her obvious racism.

Why would she even date a white man if she hates whites so badly.She surely dosn’t mind taking the money from white movie goers.

The black mentality is digging its own grave. The more things like this come to light, the more the other races realize these people are the racists.

The Gates’ organization is private last time I checked. The story is about a public school.

INCORRECT!!! They are very visible publicly and will be held to public account. If they had a whites and Asians only college scholarship programs the lefties, blacks and the Democrat hacks would be screaming and holding them to public account and Gates hochos would back down

Numerous whites only scholarships to varying colleges have been modified due to minority group pressure to include all, against the wishes of the (dead) donors who started and funded them

 

An African-American studies professor at Columbia University on Wednesday took to task a Texas student who is organizing scholarship exclusively for white men.

Marc Lamont Hill on MSNBC told Colby Bohannan — who came up with the scholarship idea — that “being white is itself a form of scholarship.” He said that white Americans have better access to health care, criminal justice and housing, among other things.

“There’s no need,” he said. In fact, Hill called it a “spectacle that we see every year with Affirmative-Action bake sales, with now whites-only scholarships, which only draw attention to white folk who are becoming increasingly frustrated that the world is becoming a little more fair.”

Bohannan disagrees.

“First of all, I just want to thank him for pointing out the fact that that ‘white folk,’ his words, not mine, have no problem affording anything,” Bohannan responded. “Right after I’m done with this interview, I’m going to go to the bank and say, ‘hey, I forgot I was a Caucasian American, can you just go ahead and throw some money in my account, please.’”

Bohannan — a student at Texas State University in San Marcos — is president of the Former Majority Association for Equality, the nonprofit group offering the scholarships. The group has raised enough money to offer five $500 scholarships for the fall 2011 semester. In order to qualify for the scholarships, applicants must be 25 percent Caucasian and have a 3.0 GPA or higher.

I think we may be operating with different definitions of the word “Public.” I was just referring to funding. There are two sets of rules.

If the Gates Foundation chooses to exclude white people from their programs, that’s their business because they are privately funded (It’s also their wont because they’re lefty loonies). The school, however, is publicly funded and therefore not supposed to be excluding anybody.
