After School Tutoring: Whites need not apply

http://denver.cbslocal.com/2013/02/1...oring-program/

Quote:
AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) - A school principal said no white children were allowed at an after-school tutoring program, and now some parents call it discrimination.

The principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora sent a letter telling parents the program is only for students of color. Parents CBS4 talked with said they were shocked to see, in this day and age, what they consider to be segregation.

"I was infuriated. I didn't understand why they would include or exclude certain groups," said parent Nicole Cox, who is white.

Cox's 10-year-old daughter needs tutoring. After receiving the notice, other parents complained to the school's principal, Andre Pearson.


p.s - is there anything better than reading the comments sections of articles like this???
"We have come so far in all of these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally ... this is a form of bullying," Cox said.

Before Cox could complain to the school, Pearson contacted her directly. His voicemail only seemed to reinforce the segregated tutoring idea.

"This is Andre Pearson. It's focused for and designed for children of color, but certainly, if we have space for other kids who have needs, we can definitely meet those needs," Pearson told Cox in the voicemail.
Yeah, wow. This really helps bring us together doesn't it?

Didn't realize the phrase "colored people" still flew in Colorado.

You only copied half of the article. Here's the other half:
Quote:
Pearson declined to comment on camera, but a district spokesperson claims it was all just a big misunderstanding.
"I think what the answer is, is that he made a mistake," Tustin Amole with the Cherry Creek School District told CBS4.
The new tutoring program was started by parents of minority students to help bridge the achievement gap.

The district is now clarifying that the program wasn't meant to segregate anyone.
"But we have had lots of students sign up for the tutoring. Many of them are white and we will be accepting all of them," Amole said.
"I just want everybody to be treated equally," Cox said.
The new tutoring program began Wednesday. CBS4 was told a letter would be going out to parents to clarify the error that was made.

They obviously employ a guy who's not too bright. Or do you think there's an organized, systematic plan across the country to be racist towards white children.

ofcourse not , silly. i don't think there is as organized , systematic plan across the country to be racist towards any color children. a few idiots here and there but that's about it. there is however an organized , systematic plan across the country to hire/enroll in school individuals based on color and not on academic achievements or job requirements in order to meet certain quotas.

um he was the freaking principal, subsequent apologies from his higher ups in the face of media scrutiny mean nothing. This wasn't a rogue teacher, TA or lunch lady. This was a school administrator.

I love how you easily brush aside anything you don't like as "meh, no story" or "just one person" yet you never apply that same logic to anything that conservatives or republicans do. In fact, by your usual logic one person doing anything = GOP, conservatives, etc. You're quite an illogical fellow.

If that's indeed true, you'll have no problems finding posts of mine that prove you right.

"Aloud", haha. Maybe you should have joined them in tutoring. I'm sure once they've met you, you will be allowed to join ;-)

I kid though. Just love those precious ironic moments.

How is this any different from Caucasians say stuff and then said it was taken out of context... Racism is and forever will be laced in the background of America... And that goes for black and whites... Until we stop seeing one races as inferior, and another superior... There will always be this kinda stuff reported... I so hate to see the violence, and people swimming in blood.... Geesh....

Racism does NOT have to run amok in this country and does so only because it's passed from generation to generation. The anti-white sentiments (obvious in folks like Jesse Jackson) has been overlooked simply out of fear.. after all, disagreeing with Jackson, Sharpton, and other race baiters of his ilk, simply results in them bashing the messenger as a racist.

We have a serious problem in this country with individuals looking the other direction on issues simply because it goes hand in hand with the subtext of their views. Busa and liberals like him will overlook this incident and claim that it's just a one off.. in reality, THAT ISN'T THE CASE. Montgomery County, MD has been considering FOR YEARS segmenting the daily lessons between whites/asians and blacks/hispanics. They claim that the latter group simply isn't able to keep up with the reading levels of whites and asians. Now here is the kicker.. they aren't looking to "segregate".. instead, they just want to make the lessons easier on blacks/hispanics so that they can raise up their average student GPA and send more on to college (which will result in a pay increase for them). Similarly, they want to make it HARDER for whites/asians to receive the same marks (and get into the same colleges) by INCREASING their work load. So to "level the playing field" they just want to tie anchors to specific races in hopes of the "lesser race" excelling.

THIS IS ASININE. When did it become acceptable to NOT judge people based on merit so long as they are white or asian?

Long story short, Busa (and those like minded) will look the other way.. but if this was a private school which was offering tutoring ONLY to white kids, he would be up in arms about it.

Is that what's happening here? Does the school offer tutoring ONLY to non-white kids?

2000_328ci... Unfortunately my fellow poster, it has forever embedded itself in our society.... None of us here will live to see it uprooted from society as many don't want it to be... Both blacks and whites... Sadly enough though... Jeremiah wright ( I really don't like this guy) was right.. America's chickens are coming home... Both black and white feathered... Just my 2 shillings... If some even know what that is...
