Black girls at U Prep High School could start MMA fight club; community reps 'outraged' at black 'system'
It’s the black girl gangs against the black girl gangs - of University Preparatory High School. As many as 30 girls were arrested at their high school in Pittsburgh for fighting, an all out brawl - think punching, kicking, scratching, etc.
It could be featured as a new movie - the Girl Gangs of Pittsburg. The “Gangs of New York,” set in the early 19th century, was about white gangs, enforcers, beating up on other gangs of Irish immigrants, who settled in New York City.
The movie starred a young Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis and Cameron Diaz. It’s quite a violent movie, but evidently no more violent than the teens black girls of University Preparatory High School in Pittsburgh’s Upper Hill District, where the fighting occurred.
EXCELLENCE in FIGHTING
Here is a statement about the wonderful opportunities for all students at the school:
Located in Pittsburgh's historic Hill District, the Pittsburgh Milliones 6-12, University Preparatory School is a neighborhood school that offers an embedded academic Magnet program. Formed by a unique partnership between the University of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Public Schools, Pittsburgh Milliones embraces a total college-going culture in and outside of the classroom.
"Our curriculum is driven by research but molded by each student's individual goals and abilities, providing each student with the opportunity to discover the value and attainability of post-secondary education. A small school environment provides support for students approaching or above grade level, and our support systems have been designed to help every student at Pittsburgh Milliones complete advanced coursework and succeed.
All learners are expected to maintain high academic standards, believe in themselves, and graduate from high school to further their education. This belief, combined with our efforts to acclimate students to university life and introduce them to the possibilities that await them after high school graduation, will motivate students to pursue a college career.
Our highly qualified faculty and diverse learning community together demonstrate that a public secondary school can connect all students to a relevant post-secondary opportunity, regardless of their previous academic record, serving as a model of innovation and excellence in urban education devoted to the distinct mission of Excellence for All."
If you notice the description, this is an area of Pittsburgh where whites once lived.
No longer. Blacks have moved into the area, and in an attempt to assist those living in the area, the University of Pittsburgh got involved in trying to help the black students. These students are supposed to be focused on learning to adapt to college life, thus the term preparatory. How can they adapt to college life if they have to defend themselves at school?
This is not college prep, it is fight prep: learning to fight in an academic setting, school classrooms, other areas, as can be seen in the youtube video posted online.
BLACK HIGH SCHOOL PREPS for MMA
There seems to be a theme here: blacks fighting instead of learning. There were a few white girls fighting in the school, but the majority were black. If it were an all white school, it’s doubtful that the girls would be fighting. Can anybody imagine white girls fighting at a Catholic prep school? Learning to fight can lead to great things, like being in the Olympics. But it’s not primarily what most students attend school for.
At first it was a shocking news story and did not make sense, until we saw pictures of the black students. Then it all fit. There are thousands of prep schools across the U.S. Why would this one be any different? It's different because there are simply different educational standards or expectations for blacks in the black community and culture, than for whites.
How is it possible that a group of girls at a prep school could fight with each other? What could they possibly fight about? This must be a freak incident; preparatory boys or girls don’t fight with each other. It turns out that they were fighting about a boy.
Community leaders called on city and law enforcement officials to take action. The fight began at 9:45 a.m. and the school was put on lockdown for several hours. The Pittsburgh Public Schools spokeswoman is Ebony Pugh, who is also black. Because the students fighting were girls and not boys, there were no major injuries, only bruises and scratches, and some blood in the hallways. Why were the students fighting? An investigation showed it was an ongoing dispute between students from the city’s Garfield and Hill District neighborhoods.
“It did take a while to get the situation under control,” Pugh said. Now think about this: these students have parents. They showed up at the school, expressing puzzlement over these students fighting.
Leaders of the nonprofit Bloomfield-Garfield Corp., whose neighborhoods are included in University Prep enrollment, called on Superintendent Linda Lane, Mayor Bill Peduto and District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr. to address the violence. How are they going to do that? Leaders of the Bllomfield-Garfield Corp. are black, which makes one wonder who they are complaining about? Are they going to tell the black students to turn the other cheek?
Peduto is a Democrat, and served as a member of the Pittsburgh City Council from 2002 to 2014. As a Democrat, Peduto can’t tell the black parents and students that this is their fault and their problem, even though it is. This is because he is a Democrat, and there is no Democratic blueprint for blacks taking responsibility for themselves; there is only blaming someone else for their problems.
Leaders say they are afraid that the current learning environment is hindering children from succeeding in the classroom and will set them back for years to come. Or, perhaps the girls will succeed in becoming proficient at fighting instead of learning, and become excellent Mixed Martial Arts fighters. Instead of setting them back, it could provide a means of raising themselves out of poverty. The Pittsburgh police could cooperate with black parents and leaders in this endeavor. The brawl was not the first violent incident associated with the school.
In August 2014, a University Prep student opened the door to the gymnasium to let in three individuals who pushed past a teacher to attack another male student. The victim sustained an eye injury. No doubt the reason why the victim sustained an injury is because the three students let in were also males. Then, two months later, University Prep senior Eric Young was shot and killed in a targeted attack as he and his mother left their Hill District home for school. He had survived a previous shooting near his home unscathed.
One would think that Al Capone and other bad people have risen from the dead, and are inflicting serious mafioso damage to the fabric of blacks in inner city Pittsburgh.
Like Capone, who saw nothing wrong with taking care of people, hiring people to “hit” others that he did not like, blacks it seems have taken up the Capone narrative: take care of those who diss you. Take care of meaning end their life.
The news report was on the Fox News web site, but could not be found of the CNN web site, which either means producers at CNN were not aware of it, or chose to ignore it, and censor it from their site. It would be interesting to find out what their reasoning was for deliberating ignoring a new item that should be of critical interest for people of all races.
Perhaps if one ignores problems in the black community, they will simply go away. Unfortunately, we know this is not the case; if anything, problems in all black schools seem to be escalating.
