    :nuts: It's gettin, it's gettin, it's gettin kind of hectic.


    OKLAHOMA CITY A white professor who says she was racially discriminated against by historically black Langston University says she's not likely to accept a negotiated settlement of her claim.
    English professor Barbara Craig says she's been paid less than her black colleagues and that black professors were given preferential treatment.

    The U-S Department of Justice and Langston have agreed to settle the claim for just under 30-thousand-500 dollars and Craig would get a raise to more than 52-thousand dollars a year.

    But Craig says she thinks injustice she's suffered is so severe that the settlement is not adequate and she may reject it and file a federal lawsuit.

    Another white Langston worker sued Langston for discrimination last year and won nearly 300-thousand dollars.

    we cant accurately say that blacks are gaining in the workplace financially if this happens. They cant fix the unbalance like this, they gotta do it right.

    More of this so-called 'reverse' discrimination nonsense. If Black people want to hire our own, then we are going to have to find more savvy ways to do it......because whites are always seeking ways to make themselves victims of something they are clearly NOT.

    White people tend to complain when ever they don't get preferential treatment....

    This lady is a hypocrite, if she was at an all white school she wouldn't give a rat's ***.
