Oldest U.S. Black College on Verge of Financial Collapse

David Dekok, Reuters, December 17, 2014

The nation’s oldest black college, Cheyney University, one of Pennsylvania’s 14 state-run universities, is on the verge of a financial meltdown that threatens its ability to continue operating, a state official said on Wednesday.

Cheyney’s student body has shrunk by two-thirds, to about 1,000, since its 1983 peak, and its four-year graduation rate is just 9 percent. A quarter of students never receive a degree, and student loan defaults are high.

“Cheyney is in dire, dire, dire straits,” the state’s auditor general, Eugene DePasquale, said. The university has had a deficit for four of the last five years, growing to a cumulative $12.3 million shortfall as of June 30, 2013.

Cheyney’s fiscal problems–students who are unable to repay debt and increasing pension costs–were exacerbated by cutbacks in state higher education funding.

Cheyney, located in the Philadelphia suburb of the same name, was founded in 1837 after Quaker philanthropist Richard Humphreys bequeathed part of his estate to build a school to educate descendents of the African race, according to the university’s website.

The university has begun to shrink its workforce by 23 percent and to cut offices’ discretionary spending in half, DePasquale’s audit said.

School officials are planning more aggressive recruitment and will try to improve student retention and graduation rates. They hope to present a new policy to be implemented in January.

    This proves once again that Afro-mericans ultimately fail without whitey, his tax money and his good will. Left to their own devices and you get Detroit, Haiti and Cheyney University.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      I can only imagine what is (not) being taught there.

      Let the NAACP, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Bill Cosby bail out this school that caters to their people.

        Maybe Oprah too

      • kikz2

        i agree, let them fund their own damn schools and hospitals and welfare recipients…let them look after their own, and we’ll do the same.

      • Oil Can Harry

        Bill Cosby has volunteered to visit the female students’ dorms so he can serve them drinks using his secret recipe.

          Just a nightcap.

          Only if they’re white.

          • Reynardine

            A few mulattos came out recently accusing him of pudding his pop where it don’t belong. I think Cosby settles for 50% white or better.

          • John Smith

            I saw that black ex-model and figured that he only took high-yellow women if he deigned go for negro tail at all.

      • A Freespeechzone

        The poor taxpayers of PA and the rest of us will be blamed for the failures of this ‘university’ and forced to pay by the millions to sustain this failure.

        Holding negroes to a standard is racist; they will remind us.

      • Alucard_the_last

        Judging by the way they talk, it certainly isn’t English.

    • See The Future

      And you get America going down the tubes with captain Obama at the helm.

    • pcmustgo

      Well, it’s state-run, so they must get some tax-payer money.

    • Speedy Steve

      And Saint Paul’s College in Lawrenceville Virginia, which also recently failed.

        Nope. They will just wallow comfortably in the scum til they perish, Haiti comes to mind

  • It’s the East St. Louis of higher education.

    • Oil Can Harry

      I looked up the school on Wikipedia and they received rave reviews.

      For their basketball team.

      • John Smith

        One thing blacks do well… besides committing crimes.

        • Reynardine

          Too bad you can’t construct an entire civilization on basketball and crime.

          • John Smith

            They’re trying, though they’ll need football too.

          • We’ve tried that, but because of “racism”, the bad, ol’ retailers won’t stick around. Quite terrible, that.

      • Michael Robert Ryan

        A basketball team is probably the only thing you can’t ruin by adding negroes to it.

        • Michigan Patriot

          I think coach P.J. Carlesimmo might disagree with you on that one.

  • JackKrak

    The 9% stat is interesting if not surprising but the number I want to know is the average amount of money the typical student has to spend on tuition out of his own pocket at this “university”. Not the amount covered with loans or grants, but the amount still due after the Black Bonus has been applied. I had a mediocre university experience largely because I had to work full time for the entire time to pay for tuition, books, parking permits, etc. but I doubt very much Urban Americans have to worry about this. In fact, I’m convinced that many turn a profit on the whole thing by being able to pocket the sum left over from the long list of handouts they get.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Somebody help this school out! If it closes, guess “who” will be forced to accept them in other schools?

    • See The Future

      If admission criteria were applied equally there would be very few that could in fact qualify, so problem would be minimal.

    • MBlanc46

      There’s something to be said for that point of view. Keeping them in Historically Black Colleges is to our advantage. And, of course, “The Blacker the College, the Sweeter the Knowledge”.

    • Speedy Steve

      Um, Mexican universities?

      • HMCUs have a problem, too. The students hijack buses and are subsequently abducted, murdered and then burned into charcoal by other Mexicans.

        !Viva la Diversidad!

  • Easyrhino

    “Just 9 percent of students graduate in four years.”

    Somehow this will be connected to “the legacy of slavery” as all black failure is.

    • Dave4088

      Don’t forget white skin privilege.

      • Scott Rosen

        I never cease to be infuriated that the left always makes our disgust for Africans about “skin color” as if we’re all just a bunch of Sneetches. As if skin color is the problem, and not their violence, stupidity, laziness, indolence, fecklessness, impulsiveness, propensity to rape, destructiveness, and on and on. Skin color, indeed. If they acted worth a darn, I wouldn’t have a care if they were blue, green, red, or blurple. It’s not my fault the evolution gave us a generalized color-coding: darker =dumber and more violent.

        • Some of them “get it”, but those are a small minority. A pair of big nigs were in the liquor store yesterday, and on our collective way out, one held the door open for me. I can’t abide rude behavior, even in myself, so I smiled and cheerfully said “Thank you!”

          At times like that, I am ashamed of what I think about blacks, but I remind myself of poor Channon Christian and know that what must be done is only postponed. I once criticized Bon for being angry, but I am absolutely infuriated about the Knoxville Horror, and I always will be. I hate living with that knowledge.

          • Kenner

            ‘At times like that, I am ashamed of what I think about blacks’ — I have those moments too, and then I remember they will never be ashamed of the hatred they have for us.

          • Alucard_the_last

            I keep the Knoxville murders alive on the internet. I post of it often esp. to self-loathing whites who don’t even know about this kidnapping, rape and murder. Thank God for the internet or we wouldn’t be getting any real news at all.

          • mobilebay

            Thank you. This heinous crime is never spoken of, especially by the hustlers, Sharpton and Jackson. Guess the fate of that young couple doesn’t merit a march or even a passing word.

          • IBWHITE

            Many Blacks have a natural talent for coming across as polite, civilized and even harmless – look at Bill Cosby. But never, ever trust one or let your guard down around one – it could cost you your life.

    It is a state run school, I don’t know if the state government of Pennsylvania will have the courage to do the right thing for the taxpayers and wind down the school. It is almost certain the school will go to the state asking for a bailout. This will be a growing trend in higher education.

    • Alucard_the_last

      They lower the standard so negroes can graduate but the real world doesn’t work like that. If you are a bumbling idiot, no one is going to hire you. In the case of the negro, all they can qualify for is a government job where intelligence isn’t required.

      • Lygeia

        Well, they may hire you and employ you for a while; but if you are a bumbling idiot, you won’t last.

        • Bill Moore

          Hello Lygeia,

          Unfortunately, bumbling idiot Africans do last.

          At one company where I worked, management decided to hand out $5,000 awards for excellent work. The first winner of the award was an African that was incompetent and the surrounding workers had to either do the African’s work or re-do it after the African screwed it up.

          The other workers raised so many complaints that the program was stopped.

          The African is still employed there. And others are still doing his work for him.

          The other workers have the best interests of the company at heart, and realize that if they let the African ruin the output, the company will suffer, and everyone will suffer.

          Thank you,
          Bill Moore

        They get gubmint jobs. And remain fireproof. Every time they screw up, they apply the Peter Principle and receive a promotion to a place where they can do no more damage.

      • John Smith

        Unless you’re black, then companies will hire you so they look good and make a white person do your job too while you get a raise and the white person gets turned down for “budgetary reason.” It pretty much happened to my aunt when she worked as an accountant for the local metro bus company, except she had three negroes whose work she had to do (or undo and redo, as the case may have been).

      “Afrophysicists!” Great word you coined there! The definition being, “Master of the physics of the Afro.” In other words, a hairdresser.

      • Robert Smith

        The afrophysicist studies the space program of the ancient Egyptians. The afro is the domain of afrogeometry.

  • DaveMed

    “Cheyney is in dire, dire, dire straits,” the state’s auditor general, Eugene DePasquale, said.
    _______________________________________________________

    I guess that when it comes to assessing the situation of Blacks in higher education, a single “dire” just won’t do.

  • Transpower

    They will have to cut salaries and pensions. They will have to drastically reduce the number of students to just those who could conceivable graduate. I think most blacks should go to vocational school, anyway.

    • Alucard_the_last

      Sounds good but they drop out of those too. They should be trained in cleaning up toxic and nuclear waste. That is what they are really qualified for as it is too dangerous for humans to do that job.

      • Speedy Steve

        A client of mine talked to Lincoln Tech and said he’d hire the 3 top graduates. The first one showed up in a prison jumpsuit and immediately asked “how much dis muhfuggin’ job pays?” None were hired.

    • Irishgirl

      But with all those government grants, the young scholars can go to VACATIONAL school. (I apologize for that dreadful pun.)

    • Speedy Steve

      James Lweis, you get away from dat wheelbarrow. You dunno nuffins ’bout big machinery!

    • Bill Moore

      Hello,

      Kindly do not denigrate vocational schools. Many intelligent young folks are more interested in vocational roles in society than in college courses.

      Working with one’s hands does not indicate a lack of intelligence.

      I’ve done both in my life, and both require mental ability. And both can be rewarding and enjoyable. And both contribute to the well-being of our country and the citizens within it.

      BTW, I have a Bachelor’s Degree and a Master’s Degree from the University of Pittsburgh, and certificates from dozens of programs (military and civilian) in electronics, law enforcement, and environmental issues. And I’ve been employed in all of those fields.

      • LexiconD1

        I got my LPN license (before I went back to college for my BSN) at a vocational college. Not a damn thing was ‘easy’ about it.

        My school only graduated two black out of the program, neither are working nurses today.

  • 4321realist

    “School officials are planning more aggressive recruitment and will try to improve student retention and graduation rates.”

    Graduation rates can be boosted to 100% just by following the examples set by the weenies in white academia. They pass blacks whether or not they know the course material and they give them a degree if they can read most of what is on it.

  • Alucard_the_last

    Well they can’t blame ‘racism’ in this case. They are so stupid that only 9% graduate and I wonder what useless degree they are majoring in. Negroes are a lost cause.

    Another problem is, more and more regular non-HSBU schools around the country are doing everything they can to bring in black students, just to prove how progressive and “21st century” they are, and that they are not racists.

  • haroldcrews

    It’s actually amazing that it has held on this long. Just as the end of Jim Crow by and large brought about the end of the black business class due to the inability to complete with white businesses it is the same with black colleges and universities. The black elite which previously sustained these institutions now go to schools that are white dominated. These institutions deprived of a successful alumni community whither on the vine. These institutions and the black business class that existed during segregation existed only because their clientele were limited to patronizing among black owned businesses or institutions.

    • IstvanIN

      Segregation probably helped blacks as much as it protected Whites. It forced the talented 10th to live among and police their own people.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    its four-year graduation rate is just 9 percent.

    No government money should be used to bail them out.

    But, I am sure that is exactly what will happen.

    When new Gov. Tom Wolf takes office, he will throw million of White taxpayer dollars at Chayney to keep it afloat.

    To not do so would be the height of hatred and racism.

    • Irishgirl

      If my math is correct, 1000 current students means 90 of those graduate in 4 years. And we’re paying how much for this?

  • TomIron361

    Whether it’s a college, municipality, business, etc. if it’s run by blacks, it’s a mess. One last small piece of advice. Never, ever, ever take a check from a black.

    • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

      Or lend money to a black be it from Africa or America. I once lent some money to a black and he avoided me like the plague because he had to pay me back and only after 3 months did he pay me back.

      • John Smith

        At least he finally paid – you were lucky along with naive.

        • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

          Well I guess I was looking for the good in him. He was known to me. Not like he was some stranger. So I was not naïve. Now I do not know where he is. He wants to stay in America. That is what he told me. Maybe he may pay you a visit and ask for some money.

          • John Smith

            You were naive if you trusted a negro.

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            Maybe so, but in the past he did return some money as well. So not naïve. Have you ever trusted a negro??

  • buster

    Slightly off topic but I noticed that this “college” was founded by a presumably white, Quaker philanthropist Richard Humphreys, that evidently had lots of money to squander. A not too uncommon trait of people that have become successful and wealthy is a tremendous amount of self confidence and ego. Bill Gates and others have long followed this pattern. What could be more proof of superiority, than elevating the negro’s lack of mental ability? A fools task that always fails.

    • Dr.Bazzi

      You are quite right about a fools task always fails, particularly when he gave his money to a group of bigger fools.

    • Rhialto

      Gates and his ilk work even harder to bring in Asian and Indian tech-types, thereby unemploying White men.

    • Ed

      Quakers were the first abolitionists so this makes sense. Johns Hopkins family were Quakers and sold their slaves when he was young. In addition to leaving money in his will for the university and hospital he also left money for a black school.

  • Mack0

    never receive a degree, and student loan defaults are high.

    Is this Louis Farrakhan math? Surely 91% never get a degree — unless they simply issue a boatload of feel-good diplomas. The loan defaults indicate a strong tendency to stealing, something that’s been old news since the 19th Century and probably even further back than that.

    • Terry

      The maths don’t add up. It would not be unusual for a third never to graduate so 25% isn’t that bad. Yet it says only 9 percent graduate.

  • IstvanIN

      • Bill Moore

        Or a gub’mnt program.

      • Those vehicles are all leased. When I bought my then-new Saturn in 1995, I paid cash, but the idiot at the dealership tried talking me into leasing it. When I stood up and explained that I’d drive down the street and buy a Toyota, she shut right up.

        He who has the gold makes the rules.

        • Rusty Shackelford

          I used to have one of the (then) ubiquitous green Saturns. Great car, except that model year (1994) had issues with the electrical system and it went through three alternators. Carmax still gave me $2,000 for it in 2003 when it had 120k miles on it. When GM decided to scrap the brand there was a rumor going around that Roger Penske was going to buy it, but it never happened.

        • Carney3

          Leasing only makes sense if you’re wealthy and want to always be driving a car no older than a few years old, or for battery-electric cars so you’re not left holding the bag on a car that has been made obsolete by newer models with a much longer range.

      • John Smith

        The system is set up for them to steal, but you’re right that it is the creation of white liberals.

  • I was on the five-year plan myself as an undergrad, but the article said that only 25% ever graduate at all. That’s pathetic. Is “studying” in a comfortable environment away from white and Oriental students such a horrible burden that the other 75% can’t cope?

    I would like to read writing samples from those who do graduate Cheyney, though probably only after a few stiff drinks. One of my own undergrad history term papers was about the failure of the von Schlieffen Plan in 1914 and how it was mistaken in the first place. My own writing really only flowered at that time, so I was a relatively late-bloomer. I doubt someone at Cheyney would write something similar.

    • Harry

      He had it right but the mobility needed was simply not there.

      • Not only did they outrun their own supply lines, but invading Belgium was a tragic diplomatic mistake. A Kesselschlacht against Russia on the north and south of the Polish salient would have been far better, while using first-line reserve divisions to defend in the west from Metz and Strasbourg to the Swiss border. The terrain there would have stopped the French as much as anything else, as it in fact did when they tried to execute Plan 17.

        • Carney3

          You can’t get a militaristic regime like that, which was founded in the aftermath of a previous offensive into France, to go over to the defensive like that if it has any choice in the matter at all. Furthermore a big part of the drive for war in the first place was the fear in Berlin that time favored its enemies and it should strike NOW. That feeling of urgency, the fear of losing it all via delay in the face of a looming massive foe, permeated everything, not only the grand strategy decision to go to war in the first place, but also in operational planning.

          As for outrunning their supply lines, read the final chapter of “Energy Victory” by Robert Zubrin, which provides a fascinating oil-centric history of both world wars. He points out that the First World War was in many ways a battle of coal and railways versus oil and automobiles, and the latter won decisively, in part because cars and trucks are more flexible in where they can go and can keep up with troops.

      That isn’t the problem. Only 1 out of 11 students know where to go to pick up their diploma. They think nobama has it at the white house.

    Google will also display reviews. Here are two on Cheyney:

    “Extremely unprofessional and disorganized. The departments rarely pick up the phone or respond to concerning students. Admissions and Financial aid are known for their unprofessionalism. Transferred after the first semester there. Most of the faculty/security are rude, and when asked to help (do their job), they get an attitude. Terrible experience. I strongly advise you: DO NOT GO HERE! Seriously.”
     
    “The students were very disrespectful towards light skin visitors.Puerto ricans,mexicans,Italians etc. It was just wrong. Seems like a great school when looking around to see what they have but they act like they are way better then anyone and just completely disrespectful towards people who was light skin then them I dont know why they acted like that.Not saying all but half of them was acting like that.”

      Typical behavior ANWHERE and ANYPLCE that is all black or majority black.

      It sounds like they’re talking about the community organizer’s Justice Department and 99% of his staff.

        And the post office, McDonalds, hardware store, etc. QuikTrip gives a math test to potential hires. It’s basically a comprehensive arithmetic test. This is why they have few blacks in their employ.

  • Alucard_the_last

    Unfortunately, you are correct. A negro with a college degree probably got it from some back water college. Their math (maf) level is probably that of a high school freshman. Their English skills are even lower. If they were human, they would never get the job but due to black privilege, they are put in front of the line.

    But isn’t there a great demand in the work force for individuals trained in African American Studies?

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    This shows that college and school is not for everyone especially blacks and sp!!!!cks.

  • Those companies hire empty suits as diversity coordinators in order to avoid being sued – or shaken down by Je$$e Jack$on and Al $harpton.

  • John Jackson

    What a second…..So there is a school that gets PUBLIC funding from the govt that is for Blacks Only? I would not even be allowed to open a PRIVATE school for Whites Only without having half the country outside protesting and the govt would promptly shut me down for violating the CRA, but this place isn’t even private, it’s public for Pete’s sakes!!!

  • Augustus3709

    But I thought fine upstanding African Americans need to “work twice as hard to get half as far.”

    “Cheyney’s fiscal problems–students who are unable to repay debt and increasing pension costs–were exacerbated by cutbacks in state higher education funding.”

    Cheney’s fiscal problems-students who are unwilling to repay debt and increasing retirement welfare costs-were exacerbated by cutbacks in white education subsidies.

    There. I fixed it.

    Mathematics and the sciences which employ it are pretty good at separating the sheep from the goats. You can’t fake it. Either you can provide the proof for the theorem or you can’t. No rhetorical tricks will suffice. While you can have idiot savants who can perform prodigious feats of calculation, grasping mathematics above, say, the calculus (where brute force memorization can be employed), requires real brain power. Brain power is pretty thin on the ground amongst Negroes.

    • Tarczan

      You mean you can’t endlessly talk in circles using words you don’t understand to prove a math theorem?

      • MBlanc46

        That’s another way of putting it.

  • And we were treated to this related piece of news locally today.

    http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/education/harris-stowe-seeks-to-excel-in-science-math-but-numbers/article_c7a372e7-c631-5a41-ba3d-7ac93112b0e0.html

    This is something with which I have first hand experience.

    Because I wanted to take second year calculus as a high school senior, after having taken first year calculus as a junior, I had to take it on the outside, as my school didn’t offer Calc II. At first, I enrolled in it at the wonderful institution cited in this article, as it was a relatively easy commute for me. A few days before the first class, I got a call stating that it was canceled because of low enrollment. I asked the bureaucrat how low, and she said I was the only one. So not one “real” student at this school signed up. I wound up being able to take it at one of St. Louis’s junior colleges that semester.

    Let`s not forget that standards at this lovely institution are already borderline retard.

  • shmo123

    There is too much emphasis in this country on getting a “college degree” as if everyone is capable, all are deserving, and it’s the panacea for all social problems. In order to accommodate the ever increasing number of “scholars” schools have lowered standards to the point of absurdity–which is why after four years of “University” Tyrone doesn’t know anything more than he did before he started. Too many Colleges and Universities are nothing more than Wizards conferring useless degrees on undeserving scarecrows with black skin who know full well it’s not the degree that will get them a job–it’s the color of their skin. Nothing is more foolish than believing a kid who never learned anything in grade school is going to be able to complete even basic college work, and the amount of money wasted on these social experiments is obscene; like the drop out rate at Cheney U. most of those kids will drop out and fade away, gaining nothing and owing thousands. I say steer these kids towards trades they can learn (hopefully) and let them learn something useful–being a carpenter or plumber is solid, well paid work. Unfortunately, too many young black kids just do not have the self-discipline and work ethic it takes to become successful in any venture.

    Yup just another case of be careful what you wish for.

    Oh, no! Where do we donate?

    black colleges, lol

    New law. Oldest + black run = collapse

  • Fat Steven Seagal

    We still do

  • Grey Smith

    A lot of black colleges boost their test scores and attendance by bringing in sharp foreign students. The students are allowed to work so many hours per quarter which they take advantage of to get a green card. They can then withdraw or drop out from the “college”.

  • Carney3

    Any halfway bright black 18 year old should be looking at this and seeing “easy valedictorian”.

    A classic! Where can I download this from so I can send it onward?

    College and graduate school are very helpful for negroes. They are natural scholars and they just love to learn and investigate things. Negroes should study for most of their lives in state run institutions. They particularly excel if they are required to stay on “campus”. This decreases the distractions for the scholar. Many of our prisons could be repurposed for these much needed schools. They could offer super-masters degrees, following a 40 year course of study.

      You are a true visionary!

    The only unknown is the means by which government will bail them out using Whitey’s tax revenues.
