Black Harvard student Guilty Of Being Black!

Chanequa four years of hard work were supposed to represent the end of the long unlikely journey that she took from the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, one of the poorest in the city, to reach the pinnacle of education at this ivy league institution, where only 11 percent of students are black....This young lady is a New York Times scholarship winner, a Coca-Cola scholarship winner and a member of the National Honor Society. She worked hard to get where she is, and now sees her once bright future, disappearing before her eyes...The thing is Chanequa Campbell, 21-year old Harvard student won’t be graduating with her senior class next month .... School officials have linked her to a shooting death that occurred in the basement of her dorm, because she was friends with the girlfriend of the man who was charged in the shooting.

On Friday, school officials showed up at Chanequa’s dorm room, with a trespassing order in hand, demanding that she leave immediately, informing her that she would not be graduating with her class, refusing to tell her why...Now Chanequa is friends with another Harvard student, Brittany Smith, who is the girlfriend of Jabrai Jordan Copneya, a 20-year old songwriter from NY, and the man who was arrested in connection with the shooting death....The long time girlfriend of the shooter, Brittany Smith will be allowed to graduate and she is not banned from campus as Chanequa has been...I guess their policy is expel first, ask questions later...Questions: Was her card the one used? If so did she willingly give it to him, or was it stolen from her? People let people into dorms all the time - is that something you should be expelled for?...And what about the killer's girlfriend - isn't it far more likely that she had something to do with him being in the building? This just doesn't sound right to me.
