UNC Students Blame “White Supremacy” For A Cheating Scandal In The Afro-American Studies Department…

I think the majority of readers are with me when I say, “Huh?” For those of you who want to know what the heck “heteropatriarchal” means… it has to do with the dominance of heterosexual males in society. Therefore, they are referring to capitalism controlled by heterosexual males – which I fail to see how that has anything to do with racism and White Supremacy. Someone needs a dictionary and perhaps a different school, rather than one of higher learning. Being caught at cheating equals racism? News flash idiots… you are not entitled to higher ed because you are black or any other color – what you are condoning is elitist racism entitlement and I didn’t need a dictionary for that one.

From Campus Reform:

Students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill blamed racism and heteropatriarchal capitalism for the recent academic scandal that has plagued the university.

Gathering Wednesday afternoon, members of the Real Silent Sam coalition gathered to share their response to the recently released “Investigation of Irregular Classes in the Department of African and Afro-American Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill,” which found that certain classes in the former African and Afro-American Department were created simply to keep athletes grade-eligible.

“In this space, we will not bend to the will of oppression! We will lift our voices to the administration and the world. We will reclaim our space in higher education. This is your space!” UNC senior Taylor Webber-Fields said to the crowd gathered on the front steps of one of the administrative buildings.

The Real Silent Sam is a coalition of UNC students, faculty, and community members who aim to “create honest dialogue” about Chapel Hill monuments and buildings, according to the group’s description.

On Wednesday, however, the coalition’s mission was more about the structure of the university as it rallied to “reveal ways in which our university participates in the ‘American’ system of white supremacist, heteropatriarchal capitalism and brings our understanding of what it means to be a Tar Heel into question,” according to the group’s Facebook page.

It’s not that society or your school doesn’t value African-American studies — it’s that they don’t value cheating. We value study, hard work and accomplishment, not whining and an “I deserve it,” mentality. Athletes should have to actually earn their grades, just like everyone else, regardless of race. That’s called Intellect Supremacy.
