    Students Want College To Suspend Grading Over Police Killings Of Blacks

    Over 1,000 students at Oberlin College in Ohio have signed an online petition asking the school to suspend standard grading because they need to process the police killings of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice.
    The petition states in part: "Basically, no student especially black students and students of color should be failing a class this semester. A 'C' should be the lowest grade students can receive this semester. Professors should be required to work with students, who would otherwise be at risk of failing, to create alternate means of accessing knowledge."
    According to The Oberlin Review, the university has said it would be flexible when it comes to emergency incomplete requests for some struggling students.
    The petition was reportedly started by minority students, including a junior named Kiki Acey, who wrote on Facebook, “People’s communities are being mercilessly murdered and beaten in the streets every day around the world. Others are being locked away by the millions for petty crimes. And many of us are still working every day just to be able to afford this education that fails to tell us how to free ourselves.”
    Acey also wrote on Facebook on Dec. 10: "I encourage all of you who believe that your white professors and administrators are not racist, email them with about anything that has to do with black people and see their response."
    In response to the petition, Oberlin College president Marvin Krislov wrote an email to the students last Thursday, “I will work to make this community as diverse, inclusive and safe as it can be. I invite our students and all members of the Oberlin community to have a frank, open, and honest discussion of how we can work together to improve understanding and achieve our shared goals.”

    1. It would have been nice if McCain had been so passionately eloquent during the Bush Administration while the torture was actually going on -- like marching into the Oval Office and and saying "What the f**k do you think you're doing?"

      the only Zionist slut to ever pickle bombs on his own flight deck counseling us on how to navigate through the dark times. how sweet.
      maybe daddy will cover up another attack on American ship like the USS Liberty by threatening to kill the sailors who are one of the most decorated crews in the US Navy.

      The 'students'(?) in question are probably illiterate anyway. Retarded, violent negroes....

    7. McCain was NEVER tortured when he was a POW. He was an officer and a fly boy, he knew nothing except where to drop his bombs and was treated very well.
