I came across this article on CNN.com and I must say I am completely utterly outraged at this. http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/05/14/morehouse.justice/index.html
I was going to post a video blog, then a written blog but instead I am going to post a conversation I had with someone on this issue.
Read from bottom to top...
--------------- Right its not a Morehouse problem directly but indirectly being that it was two Morehouse students, should be held to the highest standards.
Honestly even it wasn't Morehouse students where is the stand against black on black violence? Especially black men.
I don't think I can agree with you however about the 'extra stuff that Morehouse offers. Very true, education is the main reason why anyone attends college. However schools like Morehouse tend to nurture you in its own unique way, the idea of the Morehouse mystic you may have heard of. There is nothing wrong with living up to certain standards. The ideas of the renaissance that Morehouse men should be well read, well kept, etc is a good thing to live up to. It gives us not only an education, but a sense of humanity and decency.
I agree the sentence was easy. But it is really not a Morehouse problem. And the renaissance mission is complete crap. I understand the meaning, however in the end of the day the purpose is education. Not the extra bull Morehouse has
very true but on two points I must disagree. Point one the sentence for attempted murder was too lenient. The plea deal was not appropriate for the crime that was committed. Point 2 Morehouse, a school that boasts in making renaissance men did not live up to its name or rich history by allowing a student that attempted to murder another student continue his matriculation at the college. If anything the college should have been outraged at the lenient plea deal arranged.
dear Morehouse bro
I disagree with you about the Morehouse shooting. Even though the student was in a fight. Nobody should be denied an education
