Not all black students at WSU are products of the Detroit Public School system. But, many probably are. Time to get those in charge OUT.

Why the hell is it "racist" that only one in ten black students graduate?

Is it ever just going to be that persons fault for their own actions No matter what color they are?.. I guess its racist when a black person gets arrested for a crime... the white man made him or her do it. Wish I had someone to blame for all my shortcomings.

I think it's a distinction with merit. I'm glad to see they still have standards. Remember hearing about former Detroit School Board president Otis Mathis.?Yes, he is the masturbator, but before that he was noted for not being able to read or write. After 15 years at it,
they did let him get through Wayne. I wonder if there was a lawsuit involved. Years earlier, Wayne State was sued because they were making ALL students pass an English proficiency test. I passed it the first year to get it off my mind. A group of blacks could never pass it and were denied diplomas. Wayne State won those suits, but they may have been forced to make changes.

You know, Wayne state is a KGB state university , full of Koreans,polish and russians, not to count most of the iinstructors who were trained in Germany ! it tells it all.
Mindset professors downgrading students to keep them in the C or D brackets.
We will be back to set the records straight,
you bet !

You notice that selectively because many foreign students are very good at science and engineering curricula. Many local minorities go for the low level social science courses in an attempt to gain enough credits. Hopefully, they can take the maximum "Black Studies" courses allowed and gain favor with the liberal professors teaching them. The tests are few and far between and the grading very subjective. Lots of slack is allowed. In the end, they find themselves up against the English proficiency exam and needing to pass core classes in statistics and science. Then it's the "man" holding them back or in this case, the KGB.

PS. It must be very frustrating to see foreign students with a command of English.

Math beez raciss! Hey here's an idea--stop reproducing irresponsibly, dump the (c)rap 'music' and hip hop 'culture', learn how to read and get an education without pulling the race card. I'm sure corporations are lining up to hire 'black studies' graduates--NOT!!
