From the Daily Caller:
Radio host offers Trayvon Martin’s friend, Rachel Jeantel, full ride to black college of her choice
By Chuck Ross | July 16, 2013
On his radio program Tuesday, radio host Tom Joyner announced that he would fully pay for Rachel Jeantel to attend a historically black college or university of her choice…
Why must she go to a "historically black college or university"? Isn’t that racist?
Joyner told Jeantel on his radio program early Tuesday, “if you want to graduate from high school, and go to an HBCU…if you want to do that, I want to help you do that.”
Jeantel is currently 19 years old and is about to enter her senior year of high school in Miami. She’s scheduled to graduate next spring, at the age of 20.
Joyner continued, “I will help you get tutors to get you out of high school, tutors to help you pass the SAT and I will give you a full ride scholarship to any HBCU you’d like.” …
More racism. Besides, low SAT scores should not be a problem getting into any college of her choosing. Look at Michele Obama.
Jeantel thanked Joyner and said she was “shocked” by the offer. She also said that she’d like to pursue a career in law enforcement.
She wants to be a cracka?! (With an ‘a.’) Lest we forget, she told Piers Morgan that "Cracka’ means “acts like they are police” or a “security guard.""
Reached for comment, the president of the National Association For Equal Opportunity in Education — the non-profit umbrella organization for America’s HBCU’s — released a statement to the Daily Caller, applauding the news…
“An HBCU would be an ideal environment in which Ms. Jeantel could realize her educational aspirations because of their academic excellence and signature protective, supportive, nurturing environments,” Baskerville continued…
Not to be argumentative, but Ms. Jeantel might be better served to get away from such a cosseted world. She should learn to celebrate diversity.
Baskerville said that Jeantel has been “pilloried and ridiculed in the national media.” At an HBCU, Baskerville explained, “Ms. Jeantel will be able to realize her educational aspirations in a welcoming and supportive environment.”
AKA as ‘the soft racism of low-expectations.’
Because of Jeantel’s “tri-cultural, tri-lingual background” which includes fluency in Haitian Creole, Spanish, and English, Baskerville said “off of the top of my head, I would suggest that Ms. Jeantel consider Southern University New Orleans (SUNO) because of the French Creole culture in New Orleans.” …
Remember when people whose parents were immigrants used to be encouraged to learn English? Apparently, that is "old school."
