Aurora Co: Tutoring For Children Of Color Only

Oh, how far we have fallen the left has dragged us down.

AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A school principal said no white children were allowed at an after-school tutoring program, and now some parents call it discrimination.

The principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora sent a letter telling parents the program is only for students of color. Parents CBS4 talked with said they were shocked to see, in this day and age, what they consider to be segregation.

“I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” said parent Nicole Cox, who is white.

Cox’s 10-year-old daughter needs tutoring. After receiving the notice, other parents complained to the school’s principal, Andre Pearson.

“We have come so far in all of these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally … this is a form of bullying,” Cox said.

Before Cox could complain to the school, Pearson contacted her directly. His voicemail only seemed to reinforce the segregated tutoring idea.

“This is Andre Pearson. It’s focused for and designed for children of color, but certainly, if we have space for other kids who have needs, we can definitely meet those needs,” Pearson told Cox in the voicemail.

    Oh.. the irony….
    Cherry Creek School District No. 5 does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability in admission to its programs, services or activities, in access to them, in treatment of individuals, or in any aspect of their operations.

      Every white parent in that school should band together for a class action lawsuit. This is quite literally, institutional racism.

      I’m not a lawsuit guy. Really. I lost a 6 figure job because of BP and never made a claim. I ended up filing a claim with the settlement fund, but decided not to follow through. I didn’t earn the money. It ain’t mine. Sometimes things happen and force us to adapt. It makes us stronger.

    What are “children of color?”
    There’s Indian engineers at work whose kids are in gifted classes.
    They’re “colored.”
    Is the school really referring to negroes?

    The last time I looked at a box of crayons, there was a white one in the box. Isn’t white a color??? This is truly a huge lawsuit(s) just wanting to happen. Yes, I meant to say wanting. It’s like, they’re baiting for something else to come out of this. What do they really expect?

    Oh, and by the way, the Indianapolis Boat, Sport & Travel Show starts today. We like to call it White Expo.

    I thought somebody tried segregation back in the day…? I’m sure the NAACP is on the case. If not, propose opening a tutoring program across the street for everyone but students of color , then contrast and compare the reactions.

    Good let’s separate the schools with one for the Colored and the other for the White students. Then let’s reward with more funding the schools that actually perform better. That seems fair to me.
