Brooke Kimbrough is holding the sign
First, we should remember that Brooke Kimbrough is still in high school. She is, as the Beatles once sang, just 17.
So even if she ruffled feathers this past week claiming she should have been admitted to the University of Michigan — despite lower grades and test scores — because she is African American and the school needs diversity, the best thing is not to insult her or dismiss her.
I began by asking Brooke about her high school — because I’ve been there. University Prep Academy is one of the top charter schools in Detroit.
Labeling ‘University Prep Academy as one of the top charter schools in Detroit’ is telling because according to the ‘MI Dept. of Education’, University Prep Academy is rated 3 (graded a D) on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best).
If a D rating is considered one of the best in the Detroit school system…
99% of the students are Black at UPA, and 1% multi-racial.
83% receive free or reduced priced lunch
Brooke and her brothas and sistahs at UPA are totally funded by evil racist White men and I would suggest she and her brothas and sistahs not bite the hands that feed their ingrate free-loading gluttonous asses. For one day Brooke and her brothas and sistahs might have to get off of their ‘diversified’ ingrate free-loading gluttonous asses and actually earn their way through life. What are the odds?
