  • For the last couple of years, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has been accused of having lack of diversity. Now the students , including Afro-American Studies major Sy Stokes, are finding the lack of diversity troubling.

    Stokes and his peers posted a video which voices the students frustrations with the university through a spoken-word poem that reveals shocking statistics about UCLA’s diversity problem.

    What do you think about the video?

    1. The brother cited the statistics and these statistics don’t lie. The privileged ( and we know who they are) should stop pretending these forever existing huge disparities amongst the races have nothing to do with racism whether past or present and just level out the playing field. Otherwise, then stop getting mad when they are told they have had everything just handed down to them. Why the need for them to be violent and hate just be told or being made aware of this issue? That in and of itself says a lot.

    2. …that because education counts at these top tiered schools…; we tend to take the path of least resistance in life which is why we only excel at sports, dancing and getting arrested.

    3. Peeps, this is happening at universities around the country as admission is more weighted on merit than color. Only one way to even things out….perform better. Or we could cry racism and stay in the same old cycle of failure.

      • We (black people) do perform better; 200% better and get less credit than other colors (or non-colors”) do for it. We have to perform better to rise above the racist bias.

    4. iT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY, IHE PLANTATION(SPORTS) IS BOOMING AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS HOUSE THEM AND FEED THEM, TAKE A LOOK AT KENTUCKY OR ANY TOP ATHLETIC PROGRAM.
