Apparently all of the "Afrocentric" bullshit isn't helping these people that brag..."We built the Pyramids"!

But are unable to graduate!

Don't tell me about Timbuktu, tell me why these Negroes can't graduate!

Don't tell me about the Olmecs, tell me why Leroy is so dumb, that he can't graduate!

Just as I thought!

Next!

Why would they want to graduate, work hard and be successful when they can blame thier laziness on the white man?

Finishing college should be a breeze for them, after all,they built the Pyramids!

Hell, they can even name all of the Dynasties!

They tell us all of their knowledge was "stolen" from them!

I believe it too!

I think the white man entered Egypt with a vacuum cleaner, cut a round hole in all of the Negroes heads, and sucked all of the knowledge out!

Every since then, the Negro has failed miserably at competing against the leading races of the world!

Perhaps, that's why they can't finish college!

WM are responsible for more than that. Like the fact that although I have never been there, apparently I am PERSONALLY responsible when some black dude rapes a white aid worker in Haiti.

Wayne State in 2007 dropped their English proficiency requirement to graduate!

From The Detroit News: http://www.detnews.com/article/20100304/OPINI...

He stayed at Wayne for 15 years, as a student and a counselor, becoming a virtual "prisoner of Wayne," as he jokes, unable to graduate.

Mathis and another student unsuccessfully challenged the use of an English proficiency test as a requirement for graduation. In 1992, when the case went to trial, the lawsuit gained national attention. Mathis said then his failure to pass the test "made me feel stupid." The requirement was eventually dropped in 2007, and Mathis applied to get his degree the next year, after his election.

mental facilities need to bring their security systems up to date if they are to keep the likes of you from escaping.

i don't believe for one second that the failure to graduate of our children at wayne state is not by design. but it is up to us to make sure our children get in college, stay in college and is able to afford to do so.

with this mindset this trend will have no other choice but to reverse itself.

Hi, how are you.

I heard a radio show last week. On that radio show was this psychologist being interviewed.

I have no time to go into depth about it. Because it's late over here. And I need to get up early.

So here is a link.

im good.

thank you for the link, i read it. what really struck me was this:

His diverse array of past presentations and keynotes have included such topics as: Special Education Law, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivit y Disorder and Black Boys, Black-on-Black Violence, POST-TRAUMATIC SLAVERY DISORDER...

americans of african descent do not want to believe that so many of us are sufferring from trauma that our ancestors endured even hundreds of years ago.

i heard a scientist say that most if not ALL of the mental illness that AA's tend to suffer from is a DIRECT result of our peoples experience in slavery and i believe this so much.

anyway, we deffinitely need more people like this brotha because our children are dealing with much more then low grades, and high drop out rates.

something more is fueling this other then parental unconcern.

OMG!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder??? If you believe that, then you MUST believe that every child ever born to a woman who was raped and impregnated will FOREVER give birth to and father automatically traumatized children forever and ever. What mind enslaving BULLSHIT!!!! Stop buying into this slavery crap, it is nothing but brainwashing you to accept you HAVE to be inferior to White Johnny. Dr. Martin Luther King didn't live and DIE for you to accept this racial CRAP!!!! Look at what Dr. Martin Luther King and others achieved IN SPITE OF being told this kind of crap by a white supremacist society. Now YOU ARE TELLING IT TO YOURSELF!!!! YOU ARE AGREEING WITH EVERY RACIAL SLUR WHITE JOHNNY EVER SAID!!! How can you accuse the white man of keeping you down when you sound like a freakin Klansman, parroting every hateful thing ever said about the Black race? OMG!!!!!!

Yep, blame it on slavery!

Slavery ended 145 years ago, but apparently some Negroes haven't found this out yet!

All Negro slaves form a line on the right.

All free Blacks form a line on the left.

Hummmmmmmmm.......

Now we can see why Negroes grades are so low!

Wayne probably accepted them through Affirmative Action.

But, but, but, but,...."we built the ........." @*%$&&&&&^ $@#$%%!!!

Perhaps if the single african american mother would stop spreading her legs to strangers, and start raising her child so that he doesn't end up in prison, we wouldn't be in this mess. You can either blame the whites for being superior, or the single black parents for not doing their job.
