THIS is why they don’t teach you about Fannie Lou Hamer - even in February.




"Ladarius Sapho had his valedictorian speech already prepared when the principal at Proviso East High School in Maywood, Illinois informed the straight A student that he was not eligible to receive the top honor he worked so hard to achieve.
With a 4.135 GPA, The principal explained that, while he performed well enough for the valedictorian position, he technically didn’t qualify for the honor. “I was gonna be number one, valedictorian of 2014. I was going to be giving the speech at graduation. Now they won’t let me.” Sapho explained.
Antoinette Gray is a community advocate who has been trying to help Sapho retain his valedictorian status. “There is no policy,” said Gray told Fox 32. “They have been asked not once, but two or three times to produce that written policy. And the reason that was given by the school principal, is nonsense. Gray says the Principal is simply using his own discretion and that there is no regulation on the books specifying Valente’s decision to withhold the valedictorian from the Proviso East senior. A district representative said the policy can be found on the district website, but so far no one has been able to locate such a policy. According to Gray, it wasn’t in any written documentation anywhere.”
What are your thoughts on this?

I’m over shit like this happening.

The students should all gather an boycott the graduation ceremony, an then he should give his speech anyway then after he finishes the other kids should publicly announce the schools obvious racism

Like what makes him not eligible that’s what I wanna know they didn’t even give him a reason
"You can’t because of reasons!""What reason?!"" school policy, I can’t be bothered with the details look it up"

This is down the street from me. And something similar happened at my high school, too.


"I don’t have a sugar daddy, I’ve never had a sugar daddy if I wanted a sugar daddy, yes I probably could go out and get one because I am what? SICKENING. You could never have a sugar daddy, because you are not that kind of girl. Baby everything I’ve had I worked for and I’ve gotten myself. I built myself from the ground up F*@#$ BITCH!"image
