Just got around to reading the Dover Post's for this month. One thing that caught my eye was the story about DSU Assistant Professor Dr. Jahi Issa getting arrested while protesting the "increasing number of non-black students at the historically black college". Now, let me get this straight: a black man protesting the inclusion of minority students (in this case the minorities being hispanic and white students) in an institusion of higher learning? Somehow I don't think Martin Luther King would have approved of this.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. What would Dr. Issa's reaction have been if a white Professor had gotten sressted protesting the inclusion of black students at Princeton or Harvard? After all, at one time these were "historically white colleges". Dr. Issa apparently learned nothing from Dr. King.
