Universities Prefer Black Immigrants, Black Americans Are Replaced
Where do all the African American students go? African-American college and university enrollment, especially Ivy League schools, is declining while the enrollment of black American immigrants is increasing.
According to former Black Panther Party leader Professor Kathleen Cleaver, universities and colleges prefer black immigrant students. Cleaver was the communications secretary of the Black Panther Party in the 1960s before going into exile in 1969 in Algeria and then in North Korea with her husband and fellow leader of the Panthers, Eldridge Cleaver. She returned to the United States in 1975.
Most universities do not take into account the difference in their enrollment numbers. To have higher diversity figures, they do not distinguish between African American and black immigrants.
“Black students that elite colleges admit increasingly come from mixed backgrounds or immigrant families from Africa or the Caribbean,” said Market watch.
Overall, African-American registrations are lagging behind. According to federal data analyzed by the Hechinger report and The Washington Post, 15 flagship universities had a gap of at least 10 points between the percentage of black public high school graduates in their states in 2019 and the share of black freshmen they enrolled this fall.
The flagship universities are considered among the most prestigious public universities in the country.
In a 2016 interview with “The American black newspaper “ On Detroit Public Television, Cleaver, then a law professor at Emory University, said, “In the black community there are now a lot of black people in America who were not from here. There are people who come from abroad, people who come from the Caribbean… when I teach, some of my best students were from Africa. They came from another culture. They are black, but their education system and educational orientation are a little different.
She added, “Guess what? The big big universities have noticed this difference and so they want a certain black population but they prefer a population that is not as troublesome and less educated than the native black population, so we are once again left out.
#ADOS (American Descendants of Slavery) highlighted a similar concern.
Slave-Bay-Bee @ Coachernest1215 tweeted: “She gets it! Always done. Not all black people are the same. Now white America can choose whatever type of black person they want. I’ll tell you, it’s not #Freedmen, #ADOS, #FBA, #NBA or any other indigenous black group.
UnemployedPhD @ Unempl0yedPhD tweeted: “As a black American I am fully aware of the impact of slavery and the ongoing genocide on us, but Africans are the most naive, gullible and exploited people of the planet. I cannot, for the life of me, see how black Americans allow Africans to outdo them, academically.
Ronmc @ Ronmc84516182 replied, “They don’t outperform us, you don’t have to mind Harvard, Hollywood, etc. We are undermined. Everything you see an African doing here in the US, he overlooked 10 of us who were better qualified to select them for erasure using flat black.
Bl-Maki @OCBl_Maki tweeted: “Africans are being used to keep the white capitalist agenda afloat. African Americans are exhausted, so new replacements are imported. “
