Teen Who Was Expelled From School For Science Explosion Receives Full Scholarship U.S. Space Academy

Post By RelatedRelated Post


Kiera Wilmot made an honest mistake, but the police were trying to throw away her life with a felony.  After the community stood up for the girl, the charges were dropped, and she was allowed to move on with her life.   Well, her greatness is really starting to shine, as she was recently granted several extraordinary opportunities through scholarship offers she has received.

Dr. Boyce Watkins recently wrote about another group of students who were arrested for throwing water balloons.   Is it now open season on black children?    We have to start asking ourselves why it’s suddenly become so easy for a black child to be sent to prison or jail.  It appears that learning and education have been outlawed by the school systems, but getting arrested has become a leading trend.  Rev. Jesse Jackson also regularly mentions all the schools in Chicago with “old books but brand new metal detectors.”

Dr. Christopher Emdin, a professor of education at Columbia University, says that the schools are now very similar to prisons in terms of how they are structured, and how the inhabitants are treated.   Kiera overcame her situation, but there are thousands of kids across the country who aren’t so lucky.  Maybe it’s time to attack the system that is attacking us.

Check this out from Gawker: 

Kiera Wilmot, the 16-year-old honor student expelled from her high school after she allegedly ignited a chemical explosion on school property, received a full scholarship to the U.S. Space Academy, courtesy of a NASA veteran who, as a teenager, was accused of starting a forest fire during a science experiment.

The lessons here are simple:  Black kids have potential, and we can’t allow this system to destroy them.  Also, hard work always pays off, especially when it comes to education.  Dr. Boyce Watkins and Minister Louis Farrakhan recently held a forum called “Wealth, Education, Family and Community:  A New Paradigm for Black America.”  In the forum, Dr. Watkins and Min. Farrakhan both agree that African Americans are going to have to think differently when it comes to deciding what it means for your kids to be educated.

“Only a fool allows those who hate him to educate his children,” says Dr. Watkins.  “People also have to learn that there is a difference between going to school and truly being educated.”

Dr. Watkins shares video from his forum with Min. Farrakhan in a popular online class that he is offering.  Watkins says that new paradigms of thought must be embraced by African Americans if they are going to confront the ills of the American educational system.

“If we don’t stand up to this nonsense, then no one will,” says Dr. Watkins, who was placed in special education as a child. “We are in a war for the souls and future of our children. ”
