Not so higher learning.

Tariq Bashir (KOB)I am going to rip a couple of educational institutions tonight.


The first issue I have is with a community college in New Mexico and their treatment of a disabled gentleman who was not allowed to go on stage to accept his diploma.


Honestly, when I first heard about this story I thought that it was a joke, but sadly, it appears that it is true.


"Two weeks before the commencement, Bashir said that an activities supervisor informed him that, because of safety concerns, he would not be allowed to use the ramp to the stage to accept his diploma. The student took the issue to the dean and the disabilities office. The response from Diana Myklebust, CNM Administrative Technical Assistant, was an email that read in part, “…because of safety concerns the decision to not allow wheelchairs onto the stage area stands." The report did not explain what the ‘safety concerns’ were specifically.


Bashir was disappointed and told the station, "I'm not allowed to go up on stage to get my degree. I have got to go to the bottom of the stage and not get that shining moment like everybody else was getting.” The milestone was marred. “They didn’t hear my name being called. They didn’t see me getting my degree in hand. They just saw me rolling back to my sitting position,” the graduate told KOB." [Source]


How much would it cost this school to build a ramp that would allow Mr. Bashir ---and other disabled students--- to get on and off the stage in a safe manner?


Why should disabled students be denied the joy of being able to go on stage and accept their diplomas while their family members look on?


I think that Central New Mexico Community College needs to check their ADA compliance statement. An accommodation such as this would not create an "undue hardship" and given the circumstances it certainly seems reasonable.


The other issue I have is with New Jersey's flagship university, although it is more with the students there than the university itself.


They actively protested against having Condoleeza Rice speak at their commencement causing her to decline the invitation to appear.
That is not cool. College students should be critical thinkers who can sit through an address for an hour or so wishing them success in life from a former secretary of state. 


Now understand this, I am in the camp that  believes that Condi, and some of her neo con friends should have been sitting in a defendant's box at the international criminal court in the Hague, but since this is not going to happen anytime soon, I say let her speak.


Protesting her right to speak just lends credibility to the right and their spurious claim that liberals and those on the left suppress free speech and open debate.


It's all such a shame, poor Condi, I am sure that she had her day all figured out: Finish her speech in New Brunswick and then head into Manhattan to do some serious shoe shopping.


Sorry Condi, maybe next time.


Finally, another day another dumb comment from a republican politician.


(No, not the one about anal sex.)


Congressional candidate Bob Johnson of Georgia would rather have another terrorist attack than have to put up with that evil government agency, the TSA.


“Now this is going to sound outrageous, I’d rather see another terrorist attack, truly I would, than to give up my liberty as an American citizen,” he said. “Give me liberty or give me death. Isn’t that what Patrick Henry said at the founding of our republic?” [Source]


Here is hoping that the next time Al -Qaeda decides to fly a plane into a building, you will be sitting right up there in first class.

Field mentions an obscure Republican in Georgia messing up a joke-yet doesn't mention Jason Carter's(who is the democrats nominee for governor) support of the confederate flag.


I wonder why?

Dr.Nǚwáng said...

Awww Field, that shoe comment about Condi was cold, ROTFL!!!

Especialy since I'm partial to a great pair of Ferragamos myself, LOL!!!

agentX said...

Following up on the Jason Carter story:
Carter, who is a state senator, said on the show that while he believes people have the right to have the battle flag on their license plate, he would rather they focus on Georgia's contributions to the civil rights movement.

“I would like to see us focus on that great legacy we have of Dr. King and Joseph Lowery and Andy Young,” Mr. Carter said.
.

Well, if I'm ever moving to Georgia, I'd like a Dr. King license plate.

Besides, let the bigots expose themselves with their CSA "plate" and you'll know who to snitch on when they commit crimes like domestic abuse and so on...

BLACKISBEAUTIFUL said...

Even with your humor about Condi ...
U still manage to take the weaker stance about a full fledged war criminal...among other treacherous distinctions worthy of her character .....Those students had a lil more guts though...No Ms War Criminal ..You can't tell us about anything that we need to know after graduation ...thanks but no thanks is what that meant...

Because the Nanny State says it's not safe. When they pay for your healthcare, they have the right to tell you what you can or can't do.

Oh come now Field, there is no greater bastion of progressive intolerance than the modern American University.

Critical thinking has been replaced with Cultural Marxism.

The left only suppress free speech they don't agree with.

Didn't the same school pay Snooki $32,000 to speak?

Snooki or the first black female secretary of state, concert pianist, stanford professor, plus a couple college degrees.

Priorities.

@ BIB-

Blessed Blacks first...

all else flows=

Truth.

speak.on.it.

it is written that He will pour out His Spirit on the young ones in these last days.

so wrong+ Real crazy + insane (like the very definition) thoughts spoken by older people...

i am not quite sure how to feel good about vetoing the madness when it is the elders promoting it;( Standing up and shutting it down 'cause that heavily handled/manipulated thought only bears long term rotten fruit.

ANYONE paying even the slightest bit of attention would have to reach this inevitable conclusion.

folk INSIST i tom it up for the comfort of less melaninated (sp- i think i made that word up;) folk.

look at how the babes address the ancients in this nasty little stroll through the sad facts of history.

straight no chaser.

that will be fine. hope others can get the facts not fixate on the arrogance/racism that is all over the piece.

we Blessed Blacks are an emotional bunch;)

http://henrymakow.com/2014/05/Jews-and-Black-Civil-Rights.html

so folk talking 'bout i need a makeover can go back to hell and tell lucifer she won't cooperate.

;)

folk talking 'bout there are no leaders...

must've just touched down to planet earth. 'cause all the folk being worshiped were heavily manipulated + handled. directed.

we have had MISleaders.

this is why it would be wise to look to Him/His Word- considering the Blessed Black condition, world wide, reflects PRECISELY what is written for our refusal to look to Him/His Word.

i mean, really, how hard is THAT to get, really?

folk don't want to do Scriptures, but come out from among them...

all roads lead back to that Truth.

MLK went to pharaoh with the mandate to INTEGRATE. folk can't just tell that is the advice of folks' ENEMY?

BO/MO- do what thou wilt/baphomet horn throwing selves- want folk to think of the kids as "knuckleheads"...

but revolution is born in the hearts of the young.

we MUST listen to and save the babies, ya'll.

http://focusedpurpose.blogspot.com/2014/01/save-babies.html

as it relates to the latest batch of human suffering on the african continent that we are all supposed to stop and scream about on command.

if my daughter is critically ill, gasping for breath, in need of oxygen...

how crazy would i be to go put the much needed oxygen mask on my NEIGHBORS'S child's face? THIS is what following trends feels like to me at this point.

help where possible, but remain focused. 'cause i promise you Nigerians are Real clear that they are NOT Black Americans. come to think of it...i don't really see all the Love and support Black Americans throw around coming back.

it all feels like darfur or kony. darfur REALLY worked the nerve because the same folk that were on their green/blue nail polish humanity project trend...

howling HARD. promptly forgot ALL about it when the olympics bumped the human rights violations from the trending #1 spot.

;(

stop that, already. please. or at least DON'T expect my cooperation.

http://focusedpurpose.blogspot.com/2008/08/soreally-super-quickly.html

folk been marrying toddlers and ripping them apart on their "wedding night" right there in Nigeria. the continent is rife with West funded/manipulated/handled/agenda'd/armed heathens that STAY doing the most to the people of those lands. the atrocities against the women/children make me too tired to even must energy to look at the disdain the menfolk demonstrate on one another.

i pray that ALL of His people/my people will clue up. worldwide. He wants that none of US be lost.

the students are correct to refuse to pattycake those responsible for great crimes against humanity.

Real souls would NOT care how many "degrees" or how well they play piano.

is that a JOKE?!!!

really, people?!!!

wt...

http://focusedpurpose.blogspot.com/2008/04/enough-alreadydamn.html

our run away, corrupt to the core government has been PRACTICING worldwide what they intend to do to AMERICANS.

maybe selfish americans can get it if folk say it like that?

on the flip side we got "educated" Black women SWEARING it's 'bout color. hatred for Black women alone, when folk aren't trying to be all warm welcoming to Rice/Obama.

no it is not.

the sleeping Blessed Blacks need to:

WAKE UP!!!

NONE of this will get Right until we do;)

THAT'S the Good News.

lol!

BTW, is "weak sauce" the opposite of "awesome sauce"? You sound like you're channelling your inner Erkle and that ain't cool!

Weak..wack....whatever is it sure aint HOT Sauce...thats for sure...

What this boils down to is when I say BLACK First...

You weak old heads..say..

Ohhh no..DEMOCRAT First...

Dr ....U. seriously need comprehension skills if that's what u took from my post...

Gotta start calling out people that are nothing but hinderances to the convo...

StillaPanther2 said...

Brother Field ... I hope I don't stray too far off the plantation. (Relax it's can't be serious. The past will still be the past and the past will still infect the present and the future). Recently since the LA Clippers thing I have notice the many Black actors, athletes, and people with money lining up to say "I want to buy the Clippers". I find this quite disturbing due to there are so many other situations that causes could be advanced - other than buying a sport's team in America.


I would have thought it was a good thing to try to buy a team "like Mike" did. But to want to buy a team because you want to harm/shown a white man that he needs to be punished. I don't know what punishment he will suffer from by the rich Blacks putting there money in a situation where there may be other people (owners/29) that feel the same way as the punished. I think these Blacks want us coloreds to know they got white peoples' money.

I always preference my conversation with what I fantasize about. I know my people and I know their limitations when it comes to truly advancing the cause of Blackness. Now I will offer a list of some situations whereby all this "new power and wealth" can be applied to assist a race that desperately some firmaments for the future. AND YES... I still base a lot of my desires on the 60s. Remember if you live so long to the year 2040 you will draw a lot of references from the days when you felt were your most productive- now, I imagine. As a sideline... the Black race will be very fractured in 2040.

What I would like to do with Oprah's money.
1. St. Paul a private HBCU in Lawrenceville, VA has to close it's doors after 100+ years. Remember- most of those years were when Blacks were not allowed in the HWCU. Guess they saw how much diversity (?sports?' BIG MONEY) you all could produce. I would like to produce 100 doctors, scientists and nurses annually.

2. I would buy Schockhoe Bottoms area in Richmond, VA. where we housed in the "New Country" prior to being sold in slavery. To sanitize their history the majority race destroys all institutions that we had. In integrations most Black schools were deleted.

I am sure you could speak to needs for all the money that have been pledged.. if only 'WE" GET A CHANCE TO ONCE AGAIN PUT MONEY IN A WHITE MAN'S HAND.

I could go on about this sad commentary on Black life and how we see and value each other. But I would be talking to people in the know. PS Hampton University an HBCU has a cancer treatment center... so it can be done.

Yes... I do give to HBCUs, American Heart Associations, Sickle Cell Anemia Fund, Scouts

You are going to lecture a man for actually working all his life and insult him for being an "obedient negro? Really?

Going to school for 40 years does not count as "working for your self". Four decades of not producing anything, not even a medical degree.

Maybe if you had less of an entitlement attitude, you would have done something productive with your life.

And btw, Ferragamo doesn't make shoes in Sasquatch size, so your are going to have to keep getting your shoes special order from Walmart.

You will never be a doctor.

Sharon from WI said...

The article about the disabled student suggests that the ramp is already in place at the school. So, you just have to wonder what were the safety concerns regarding this student using a ramp that was already in use.

Dr.Nǚwáng said...

"Dr ....U. seriously need comprehension skills if that's what u took from my post..."

The ONLY the worse than being "young" is being young, stupid, and disrespectful.

Given that BLACK FOLK died so that YOUR Black ass could vote, your position about not voting is young, stupid, and disrespectful.

And the future of the Black race is dependant on your generation? Da' hell it is, you have NO STAKE in your damn future because your lite and not so brite ass thinks it's "weak sauce" to vote. Your generation of negros that's too dumb ass to major in STEM subjects or attend professional schools to study law or pharmacy (you look like a soft ass "communications" major). Or should I say, the generation getting academically smoked by folks just off the boat.

I could say more, but I don't typically work with retards, I leave that to professionals. Plus I have a summer research proposal and a final exam due tomorrow.

But I think you get my point so next time, DON'T COME FOR ME UNLESS I SEND FOR YOU!!

BOY!

BLACKISBEAUTIFUL said...

U said all that ..and still said NOTHING! !!!...

You still keep trying to tell me to put VOTING.......in front of BLACK First...

You cant lecture me about anything cause u don't know me...

There's too many stupid old folks out here that think the power structure can be changed from within ...

Your generation has been trying to cozy up and make nice for. 49 years....

Hint....look around u....

The only reason your coming with so much vitriol and anger is because the truth hurts..

While you keep throwing up people dying for the right to vote.....here's a clue..

Y'all old heads shouldve asked for ECONOMIC intergration... instead of SOCIAL rights...

Yet you want to get upset when somebody like me .. don't wanna worship historical symbolism without any real power behind it..

You've said enough for me to know ..who you are...

Your just another snoozer...trying to beat me in the head with DEMOCRAT First...over anything else

Soft communications major huh...

Your a joke...

Every year, dozens of disabled students fall off ramps at commencement ceremonies and suffer serious injuries, disabling them even further. Do you want his young man to become even more crippled? Don't you care at all about his safety?

The school cares about his safety, that's why they are preventing him from participating in graduation. It's for his own good. Stop questioning authority. What are you, some kind of Teabagger?

Do you even know what economic integration means as one who slaves on the plantation for crumbs? And how has "integration" worked out for Black folks overall???

YOU, need a b*tch slap upside the head with a black history lesson. Blacks like other racial groups, are MORE successful overall when we own our own businesses. That's why Black Wall Street was burned to the ground.

I've got my business, and Field has his. You'd be mindful to take a long look at what real "Black success" looks like and follow suit.

Mr. Sterling's indelicate conversation certainly was convenient for some people who wanted to get their hands on a major market NBA franchise, wasn't it?

Whoever wrote that script for Ms. Stiviano and recorded that private phone conversation knew what they wanted, and it wasn't setting up scholarship funds for black students.

Bil, Bill, Bill.

That blacks vote for their self-interest is perfectly reasonable. How in the world would black people survive in a true free market America? Conservatives like to point out how the welfare culture has parallels to being a modern-day plantation. Me thinks most blacks like this plantation.

The Republicans will never get the black vote without out-pandering the Democrats, which would be mean embracing identity politics, the welfare state, crony capitalism, and unequal status under the law for non-protected classes. What would be the point?

If the Statist tide is to be turned in this country, it won't be with the votes of black people.

Anonymous said...

FP, thanks for the link in your comment re: "Jewish Strategy Behind Civil Rights".

After reading the article, I have concluded that unless we start putting "Black First", the 'Old Negro Way' as encouraged by Jews in the Democratic Party will lead to our death.

I personally think BIB's idea of "Black First" has salvific and spiritual qualities about it. BIB's generation gives me hope.

In the article this statement hit me hard, because it has been true since the inception of the NAACP and even before:

4. After all, at least until the 1960s blacks had not shown themselves to be able to develop effective organizations without Jewish input. Blacks, as a low-achieving group, continue to have relatively little power and influence in ethnic relations in the United States and remain underrepresented in all the elite institutions of society. Because of their high intelligence, their high level of mobilization, and their over-representation in elite institutions of the government, the media, business, and the academic world, Jewish influence is far out of proportion to their numbers...."

What that tells me is what I have always feared and I have said it a few times on FN...We don't have any power in America. We are puppets on a string, who, like Field and PilotX, enjoy being slave puppets for others who care nothing about us. In fact, they are using us to our eventual death. It's a slow macabre dance of death.

All this hatred has exceeded insanity. Young cop shooting an elder African woman, will be haunted for the rest of his life. There's a price to pay for everything done in life. Eventually, all things come to an end. Maybe the African looks like apes to White people, but White people look like apes to me. No lips, age spots, wrinkles. You folks don't have it going on like you THINK you do.

In my opinion the free speech issue is the right of the students to protest an architect of the Iraq War speaking at the university, paying her $35,000 for it, and giving her an honorary degree that cheapens their own education. When it comes to Bob Johnson getting hijacked by Al Queda, maybe Condi Rice will give him a heads up like she did for Willie Brown.
