“Kiera Wilmot made an honest mistake, but the police were trying to throw away her life with a felony. After the community stood up for the girl, the charges were dropped, and she was allowed to move on with her life. Well, her greatness is really starting to shine, as she was recently granted several extraordinary opportunities through scholarship offers she has received.
Dr. Christopher Emdin, a professor of education at Columbia University, says that the schools are now very similar to prisons in terms of how they are structured, and how the inhabitants are treated. Kiera overcame her situation, but there are thousands of kids across the country who aren’t so lucky. Maybe it’s time to attack the system that is attacking us.
Check this out from Gawker:
“Kiera Wilmot, the 16-year-old honor student expelled from her high school after she allegedly ignited a chemical explosion on school property, received a full scholarship to the U.S. Space Academy, courtesy of a NASA veteran who, as a teenager, was accused of starting a forest fire during a science experiment.”
The lessons here are simple: Black kids have potential, and we can’t allow this system to destroy them. Also, hard work always pays off, especially when it comes to education. Dr. Boyce Watkins and Minister Louis Farrakhan recently held a forum called “Wealth, Education, Family and Community: A New Paradigm for Black America.” In the forum, Dr. Watkins and Min. Farrakhan both agree that African Americans are going to have to think differently when it comes to deciding what it means for your kids to be educated.”
Just when I feel like all hope is lost :) may she grow up to become another awesome woc scientist, we need more of those too.
I’m really glad that she is going to have the opportunity to blossom, and that the Universe allowed for a miracle.
ALL IVE BEEN ABLE TO THINK ABOUT IS HOW NICK FURY CAN SHOOT SO FUCKING WELL WHEN HIS DEPTH PERCEPTION IS SO FUCKED UP WITH AN EYEPATCH
eyepatches aren’t as cool as you would think
on one hand i want a nightwing movie, but on the other hand i know they’d totally prob fuck him up and try to make him ~gritty~ like batman
i think id just really like them to start with a super gritty voice over and the actor portraying dick grayson doing the gargling-marbles christopher nolan batman voice
then just have him choke and cough and be like “how does he do that for more than fifteen minutes a night, jesus christ-“
begin nightwing movie~
