Black activists at Cornell University are complaining to school officials that they are being treated unfairly because there are too many black students.
Cornell’s Black Students United (BSU) group has voiced its complaint that there are too many African-born and Caribbean black students – and not enough American-born black students.
Darryn “Dutch” Martin, who serves with the advisory board at Project 21 maintains that the real problem BSU has is simply that students from other countries are academically outshining those from America.
“Basically, what that reveals is that the veil is finally being pulled away, and these black American students are being exposed for the intellectually lazy victimologists that they are,” Martin insisted.
He also pointed out that many American-born black Cornell students are prejudiced against minority students who take their academic careers seriously.
“A black person who takes his education too seriously – who speaks correct English and makes good grades and who’s academically conscientious – is looked upon as acting ‘white,'” Martin contended.
Martin indicated that the best solution in this situation is for Cornell President Martha Pollack to simply ignore the demands of the black activists.
This problem was witnessed on campus within the student body.
“When I was in college, I remember seeing this unfortunate dynamic,” blogger David W. Almasi wrote on ConservativeBlog.org. “The African and Caribbean students I studied with usually had a distinct advantage over the native-born black American students. What gave them this privilege? It was evident. The foreign-born students didn’t have a self-defeating victim mentality. And they were very serious students.”
He elaborated on the distinct difference that gave foreign students a decisive advantage over their native-born African American counterparts.
“Instead of wasting time complaining to the university administration about what they perceived to be a system that wasn’t doing anything for them, the African and Afro-Caribbean students – just like the Asian students – spent their time hitting the books,” Almasi continued. “They were studying on Saturday nights while the black American students were out partying. As a result, the foreign and students new to America excelled academically. Surprise!”
