A Black student who attended a high school in Cleveland, Mississippi, has filed a lawsuit against her school district and its officials. She alleges a white student was named salutatorian even though she had a higher grade point average.

We know that this was the norm during enslavement for white people to take anything they wanted from us and claim it as their own. It was illegal for Black to achieve anything. All achievement was automatically turned over to the slaveholder. The reason they gave is that "property could not invent, intellectualize or think". It was up to the "property's owner to do that". This practice has been modified and continued today. I remember hearing similar stories growing up about how high test scores made by Black people were given to white people and Black people did nothing about it, primarily because they didn't know how to fight it. So Kudos to the sister living in a different time wherein she can seek pro black legal defense. And I hope she sue the pants off of them too.
