Some are questioning plans to host an all African-American spelling bee in Houston this spring, saying it sends the wrong message to students.
Kids from five local schools will compete in the first-of-its-kind spelling bee in May. Organizer Jacqueline Terrell insists it helps level the playing field for many students.
"Most children that make it to the level to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, are either homeschooled or attend private school," says Terrell. "They have more access to one-on-one training than children in public or inner city schools."....
hahahaha...i bet the women will be demanding lot more than their rights. Its in their nature.

Although I do support the equal rights of America's African American Population, I can guarantee that if there an All-White Spelling Bee, it would be shut down. So I really do think the message is wrong here.
Same as Women Only Events can be held but try to host a Man-Only Event. Guaranteed, there will be Women at the door demanding their rights.

If blacks want their own separate things, I suggest we give it to them. Withdraw all funding for everything black people use, and lets see how they do on their own.
Since they are "so proud to be black", they should have no problems supporting themselves as a whole for once.
