Activists to UMich: Admit Unqualified Students, If They Are Black

Robby Soave, Daily Caller, April 16, 2014

Activists with the radical pro-affirmative action group, By Any Means Necessary, staged a protest on Tuesday featuring a black Detroit high school student who was denied admission to the University of Michigan.

The student, Brooke Kimbrough, claimed UM rejected her because of her “morals,” and not her below-average ACT score of 23. (The average U-M student has a score between 28 and 32.)

“I believe that I have been rejected because of the morals that I stand for,” said Kimbrough, according to Fox 2 news. “I will take back my freedom as a tool to help others. I have left the plantation to get my freedom but I am coming back for you, too. I will make it my civic duty to document every news of a rejection letter that the university produces to our black, brown and red bodies.”

Kimbrough’s comments follow weeks of increasing tensions over race at U-M. BAMN activists, as well as minority students with the Black Student Union, another group, have continuously demanded increased black and Latino enrollment, even though a state constitutional amendment prohibits administrators from considering race as a factor toward admission.

Earlier this year, BSU made a list of demands and threatened “physical action,” if they were not met. The most costly demand was met almost immediately, as administrators hastily approved a $300,000 renovation to the UM multicultural center. {snip}

    I will make it my civic duty to document every news of a rejection letter that the university produces to our black, brown and red bodies.

    OMG, OMG – what a faux pax. She left off, “yellow” bodies.
    She’s not ‘tolerant and DIE-verse and incluuuuusive’ enough for U. Mich. Kick her to the curb…

      Since when are college admission/rejection letters addressed to the applicant’s body? Things have changed a little since I was 18. When I got accepted to college I remember the letter being addressed to me as an individual, not my body.

      Or maybe the bantu is idiotically parroting social justice buzzwords she has picked up and is really just as dumb as a rock, which would be consistent with her ACT scores.

  • D.B. Cooper

    So, you white people merely build a new university from scratch, from the ground up, state in advance the school’s conservative values, and clarify that students with the absolute highest scores will be admitted. Also say that it is built by whites, for whites.

    I guarantee you the minorities will be begging to get admitted, even If you give them U-M.
    I say congratulations to Kimbrough. Whatever works, right? The spineless white sissy will gladly put his future on hold so you are accommodated.

  • Manaphy

    If more students were denied because of their “morals”, then colleges may once again become institutions of brilliance and higher learning.

    • APaige

      A Black person bragging about morals?

      • Manaphy

        Is kind of like a fifth-grader bragging about how tough he is.

  • Urbane Neanderthal

    It’s humorous how they are not sufficiently intelligent to understand it’s their lack of IQ and not the white man keeping them down.

    Go to junior college, make good grades and you can transfer into the university plus save a bundle of money.

    • APaige

      The average White ACT score in 2012 was 23.6.
      The average Black ACT score in 2012 was 17.
      The average for the University of Michigan, one of the best state schools is 28-32.
      Your advice is very reasonable. I had to attend an open-door policy four year university (do those exist anymore?) for lack of good grades in high school. I obtained enough college-level courses that the state university would not require a high school transcript. I graduated with Honors from a school that I would not have been accepted at after high school. Granted, not the best way, but it was a way.

    • The only drawback to that approach is that one ends up having to take a heavy course load of upper-division classes, all at once, after one transfers, but it is an excellent way to save money. When I took welding and machining classes at Pikes Peak Community College I received a massive discount off the already low tuition for long-term Colorado residents because I was unemployed.

    HEY! It may not have crossed their minds, but that’s OUR hard earned tax money these wealthy taxpayer supported Big Time Operators are spending!

    • In that video, you’ll hear their credentials.

      For one of them, her ACT score was a very average-ish 23. The other one, they said she didn’t release her scores, probably because they weren’t even that good.

      Standardized testing exposes grade and course title inflation. Which is why, alluding to another AR thread of today, they are so important.

      One of them is also on her school’s debate team. Also another ideal segue to yet another AR thread of today. Now we know that doesn’t really amount to a hill of beans.

    • Rodney S

      She “just got off the plantation”. Haha! The only cotton that black sow has ever seen is on the ends of a Q-tip. I suppose going to a community college for two years violates her “morals”. Disgusting.

  • borogirl54

    I have a suggestion for this woman, why not go to a community college for two years, get your grades up and transfer to the University of Michigan. Makes sense to me.

    • jambi19

      That’s the work for white people. Not the enriching diversity.

      • borogirl54

        What is the point of enriching diversity when she cannot keep up with her classmates?

    • Peter Connor

      She will never be capable of U-M, 23 is awful

      • Mark

        Not for African Studies.

    • Ed

      That would require work, won’t do.

    • dcc2379

      Either way, I’m paying for it because our leaders decided that if your mother is a whore, and even better yet, on drugs, then whites should pay for those lousy choices. Since she probably won’t go to class, she probably won’t be a dokter or a lawer. With an ACT of 23, that does make her a gifted black, but for whites, average.

      • If I’d scored 23 on the ACT, I certainly wouldn’t brag in public about it! I got a 35. If I’d gotten only 23, I’d have had to think seriously about wearing a paper bag with eye holes cut in it.

        • Mrfinoni

          a bag or a sheet?

    • jayvbellis

      I recommend the JC 2 years, then transfer program for Whites. We did this with my step daughter at an excellent California junior college, all the credits transferred to University of California. We saved a ton of money. Plus, many 18 year olds get lost, consumed by the booze culture of four year colleges.

  • Let’s hope the morons in By Any Means Necessary do something really stupid. Universities pandering to diversity are seeing ever more radical demands that even libtards have to know will destroy the university system. It’s the destruction of that system that would please me to no end.

    White kids end up as debt slaves to student loans with no job prospects, now or ever, in Diversityland. Whites need to opt out of the system and create their own support networks. I’d rather hire a smart, personable white kid with a HS diploma than a black with an AA college degree. That’s what we whites need to do–opt out of this corrupt system and make one of our own.

    • Any replacement system that whites create will immediately be met by a barrage of black and brown demands that they be given undeserved access to it, and the federal government will equally quickly use the full power of the courts to ensure that they do.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        The American federal government is the white man’s greatest enemy. They are using blacks and browns to beat white men into submission. The white man will never be safe until he can shake of the chains of that tyrannical institution.

  • [Guest]

    >>>The most costly demand was met almost immediately…

    That is the story of “race relations” in the U.S. over the latest several decades, and it’s only going to get worse.

  • What makes this inarticulate, histrionic lunatic think she can actually do university-level work? Judging from the fact that she thinks the ACT test grades a student on something called “morals”, I’d say she’s not even bright enough for a two-year Associate’s Degree at a community college.

    Even Michigan State University has an average ACT score of 25.5 for incoming freshmen, so Kimbrough would be out of her league there as well, just not as disastrously as at UM.

  • Conrad

    She didn’t exactly explain the morals that she stands for.

  • 2eRep

    Negroes have morals? Who knew.

    • I think in this case “morals” mean she only has three kids with different fathers, she hasn’t shoplifted anything in over a month, and that she is regularly taking her Acyclovir prescription to reduce the frequency of herpes outbreaks.

  • dcc2379

    If she was on a plantation, where is her overseer? And since when do blacks have morals?

  • One comical aspect of this, in a black humor sort of way, is that at least the radicals of the Sixties were sometimes up against actual conservative administrators and department heads. Today’s third-world rabble by now must be up against almost totally the products of and the academic natural-selection victors of ‘Celebrate diversity!’

    True, these esteemed academics are outrageously giving away White taxpayer dollars, but it is at least entertaining to watch the Tolerance Police finally on the hot seat. Didn’t occur to them that once you abandon a meritocracy and unleash the mob, that Western civilization will just keep getting devoured. It is as if a farmer had said to a ravenous swarm of locust, “Okay, go ahead–but you can only eat half my crop.”

    BSU made a list of demands and threatened “physical action,” if they were not met. The most costly demand was met almost immediately, as administrators hastily approved a $300,000 renovation to the UM multicultural center.

    The power of racial solidarity. There’s not much to learn from black people, but in this case whites could stand to learn a lot.

    • They probably had the money already earmarked for that building.

    • Mrfinoni

      And who are the contractors getting the renovation contract?

  • Brian

    I guess ‘By Any Means Necessary Save High Test Scores, Grades, and Work Ethic’ didn’t have quite the same ring.

  • LIBERTYSINCURSION

    This is exactly what I imagined this evolutionary throw back to look like. May I be the first to say,,,, Blugggggh!

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      Her voice cracking with emotion was a nice touch. Hers is a generation that has known nothing else but squeaking loudly enough to get the oil.

    • What’s that thing on her head?

      • IstvanIN

        What is that thing between her nose and chin???? Looks like a plunger!

  • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

    If Michigan schools are prohibited from using “affirmative action”, does that mean that they still collect applicant racial data? If so, for what purpose? If not, how would they know that someone named “Brooke Kimbrough” is black, let alone has unacceptable “morals”?

    • With a “plain vanilla” Anglo name like Brooke Kimbraugh, they couldn’t have guessed, but an idiot with a revolting, furry black tumor growing out of the top of her head wouldn’t know that.

  • De Doc

    Because the world needs more majors in BS Ethnic Studies programs?

    • Of course; our wonderful Imperial government forces private industry to hire them as “diversity coordinators”.

  • SFLBIB

    I was in my second year of jr. college [1961] when “Equal Employment Opportunity” [EEO] first appeared. Since then, it has followed an evolution:

    EEO, >> failure of which gave birth to

    Equality of Results >> failure of which gave birth to

    Affirmative Acton >> failure of which gave birth to

    “Needed Diversity” >> failure of which gave birth to

    EEO >> reinterpreted to mean equality of results.

    We have come full circle.

    Twenty years ago, Lawrence Auster wrote, “The more America does to overcome its ‘racism,’ the more ‘racist’ America appears.” This has been demonstrated by the above history of attempts at EEO and equal outcomes.

    Instead of this mindless, endless quest for the mythical benefits of “needed diversity,” schools, should recognize that some cultures, for whatever reason, just don’t value education. Period. If they did, their scores would be no different from any other group’s, for they have had 50 years to do it. But, as Thomas Sowell observes, it’s a lot easier to agitate for special treatment than it is to hit the books and be treated the same as everyone else. The sooner schools recognize that fact, the sooner it can be addressed and remedied.

  • A Freespeechzone

    She should have applied to Harvard, Yale or Stanford–they have lowered their entrance standards to include unqualified blacks.

  • disqus_irCdmAu8It

    These people enslave themselves, they create the is own plantation through drug abuse, criminal activity, teenage pregnancy, and other lifestyle choices. Al Sharpton and Low IQ Jackson have taught them the evil, blue ever devil white man has held them down, but, we all know that is nonsense.
