Why Are So Many Black Girls Suspended?

Posted by Admin On January - 8 - 2015

By Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu

* A Black girl was suspended because she saw a parallel between Frederick Douglass
trying to read in 1850 and her class today.

* A kindergarten girl was handcuffed and placed in a police car by herself and driven to
the station because she was disruptive.

* A girl was suspended because someone sneezed and she said God bless you.

* Girls are suspended because they wear their hair in braids, puffs, and twists.

* 2 girls are suspended and placed in alternative school for fighting. The white girl stays 90
days and returns to the regular school. The Black girl remains at the alternative
school for the entire year and returns the following year 12 months academically behind
her classmates.

* A girl is suspended and expelled and is given a felony because her science project blew
up in class. She was called a terrorist.

* Many Black girls are suspended because they are considered too loud and too much
attitude.

* A school wanted to catch a boy sexually abusing girls in the classroom. They used a Black
girl as bait. She was raped and the school denies their involvement.
