Cedar Valley College Receives Multimillion-Dollar Grant
Cedar Valley College has been awarded a grant to help ensure the success of African American males in science, technology, engineering and math.
The college will receive $2,452,567 over the next five years from the U.S. Department of Education’s Predominantly Black Institutions (PBI) program to focus on STEM programs.
“It’s going to allow us to have more resources to work on the whole student,” said Cedar Valley College president Dr. Jennifer Wimbish. “We are going to make connections to internships and apprenticeships.”
In the past 10 years, African American men have been one of the only minority groups to not make significant progress in STEM careers. SOURCE
STEM is an acronym for the fields of science, technology, engineering and math and I am all for everyone excelling in these areas, White, Black, Male and Female, everyone, as long as you make your way into these fields on your own merits and don’t buy your way in with some grant money or Federal privilege because of your pigmentation.
You can’t just throw millions of dollars at this and hope it’s going to work, I am fairly certain that MONEY can’t buy intelligence and a solid education that actually sticks WITH the student.
“I haven’t seen too many more African Americans. I have seen a lot of Caucasian males, but I haven’t seen too many people that look like me,” said STEM student Brian Walker.
That’s because YOUR people aren’t, as a whole, mentally equipped to enter these fields and if they are GIVEN the opportunity to get in, not earn it, oh no, have it given to you, all that means is that YOU and others like you have scammed the system, robbed the American taxpayer that IS paying the bill for all of this and you will ultimately FAIL if you can get a reputable firm to hire you.
What you have then is another Affirmative Action boondoggle that helps no one and is, all things considered, a great contribution to the *Dumbing Down of America*.
U.S. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Dallas, presented the first installment of the PBI grant to Cedar Valley College Wednesday.
“I am very pleased to see Cedar Valley College at the forefront of eliminating barriers and providing opportunities for African American male students to succeed in the STEM fields. Their STEM education will be key in helping these students to secure good paying jobs in the 21st century,” Johnson said.
Eddie Bernice Johnson is one of those *dumber than a box of rocks* kind of Black people that only succeeded in gaining a seat in Congress because she perfectly represents the people that live in her area; welfare scammers and thugs that have never worked an honest day in their miserable lives.
Johnson represents a Congressional district that is by far, very Black, poor, crime ridden and far less educated than many other areas of Texas. She is very representative of her constituency in ALL areas, and trust me, they know it and appreciate it, she is their *Sugar Momma* in Congress.
Cedar Valley College is the only Texas institution to receive a PBI grant for this round of funding.
That is a good thing for the tax payer; Predominantly Black Institutions, I don’t believe we can afford to support these people any more than we already do.
One last thing; why are there Predominantly Black Institutions but, to the best of MY knowledge, no PWIs, Predominantly WHITE Institutions? That sure seems like a RACIST thing to me, reverse racism, and you KNOW it would be called RACIST, if there really were Predominantly WHITE Institutions.
Damn this White Privilege stuff, I wants me some a dat Free Cheese!
