Black Student Group Complains Ivy League School Is Letting In Too Many African Students

Black Student Group Complains Ivy League School Is Letting In Too Many African Students

Amber Randall on September 28, 2017

Cornell University’s Black Students United demanded the university start recruiting more black American students because the campus has too many African and Caribbean students Wednesday.

Black Students United, a group for students identifying with the African diaspora, handed the university president a list of twelve demands, with one of them dealing with the disproportionate representation of African students compared to black students on the campus.

“We demand that Cornell Admissions to come up with a plan to actively increase the presence of underrepresented Black students on this campus. We define underrepresented Black students as Black Americans who have several generations (more than two) in this country,” the group stated in their demands.

Black Students United takes issue with the fact that there are more African and Caribbean students on campus when compared to black students. The group defines black students as those who come from black families that have lived in America for two or more generations. While the group said it doesn’t mind the university trying to recruit African students, they want the college to pay more attention to black students whose families have been affected by years of white supremacy.

“The Black student population at Cornell disproportionately represents international or first-generation African or Caribbean students. While these students have a right to flourish at Cornell, there is a lack of investment in Black students whose families were affected directly by the African Holocaust in America. Cornell must work to actively support students whose families have been impacted for generations by white supremacy and American fascism,” the group wrote.

The demands from Black Students United come after a black student alleged that fraternity Psi Upsi members brutally assaulted him and called him a “n*gger.” The demands also call for the frat to be shut down and give up its house to students of color to gather.

    They are upset because the Africans fit into mainstream Society better and get along with Society in general—and make better grades. They invalidate the “Excuses” and “Complaints” of American Africans.

    “…they want the college to pay more attention to black students whose families have been affected by years of white supremacy.”

    WTF? Not only do these “blacks” misunderstand their own history thanks to the lens of Liberal revisionism, but they are clueless about the history of white oppression of colored peoples in the REST of the world!?

    These morons have no clue about slavery in the Caribbean and South America! And why should they, since they seem to think that slavery was still around in their grandparents’ days?!

    Slavery wasn’t but most people’s grandparents were born before desegregation and if they’re from the US then they lived through it….
