    OH College Kicks Off Orientation Program For ONLY Black, Latino, and Native American Students

    Kent State University, nestled in Kent, Ohio is welcoming the class of 2021. Their website is very welcoming….well, if you’re of African American, Latin American, or Native American descent anyway.

    The school has created a free, four day orientation with mentorship, and call it Kupita/Transiciones (K/T). This program sounds amazing, but is it right? I don’t really care if they have an orientation that excludes whites and asians and whoever else isn’t one of the three listed. However, it is the same people in that program that will be crying social injustice later down the road….when they are the ones getting special treatment.

    The website reads:

    Kupita/Transiciones (K/T) is a free four-day cultural orientation and year-long mentoring program for newly admitted and transfer African American, Latino American and Native American students. K/T kicks-off with the four-day cultural orientation which begins on Monday, August 21st and concludes on Thursday, August 24th, 2017. Spanning over the four-days, students will engage in activities to learn how to successfully navigate their college career by focusing on the cultural and social climate of Kent State University.
