"Ladarius Sapho had his valedictorian speech already prepared when the principal at Proviso East High School in Maywood, Illinois informed the straight A student that he was not eligible to receive the top honor he worked so hard to achieve.
With a 4.135 GPA, The principal explained that, while he performed well enough for the valedictorian position, he technically didn’t qualify for the honor. “I was gonna be number one, valedictorian of 2014. I was going to be giving the speech at graduation. Now they won’t let me.” Sapho explained.
Antoinette Gray is a community advocate who has been trying to help Sapho retain his valedictorian status. “There is no policy,” said Gray told Fox 32. “They have been asked not once, but two or three times to produce that written policy. And the reason that was given by the school principal, is nonsense. Gray says the Principal is simply using his own discretion and that there is no regulation on the books specifying Valente’s decision to withhold the valedictorian from the Proviso East senior. A district representative said the policy can be found on the district website, but so far no one has been able to locate such a policy. According to Gray, it wasn’t in any written documentation anywhere.”
What are your thoughts on this?

I’m over shit like this happening.
hey i just followed this account - IG: @coon_times
ppl in #ferguson & #stlouis are proclaiming that #youngthug is now on the #noflyzone list for negative statements he made #aboutaweekago in regard to the #mikebrown murder. our community’s been tired of our own ppl who have positions of influence downplaying the struggle. it’s perpetuating genocide when ppl in our community discourage others to speak up if they choose to. #wakeup!!! don’t be so quick to play a #puppet or #coon. #stakesishigh; you’re either #friendorfoe. we continue to hold our own accountable for their actions.
