    A must see video of a Black Woman robbed of honors by a white Principal ordering an A grade reduced to a B grade, because she would have been the second black in a row to receive Valedictorian honors, at a mostly all white high school, her sister being the first:

    What a petty, pathetic principal. I know it was normal for crap like that to go down back then but it still ticks me off.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Peace and Love!




    .......Don't think I've had the honor yet, but welcome to Destee.com ManicRaider, and if I've done so already, forgive me.

    Yes, it was very normal back then, unfortunately...smh. And the very design of Racism White Supremacy is to have that perpetual affect. But like the sister of the victim in this case, I feel better just sharing the news and responding to peeps such as yourself...tc(take care), Peace In,
