Black-only meeting of Klein students stirs segregation concerns

Nov 12, 2015 by

Klein Oak High School is expected to host a meeting and apparently only black students have been invited.

There’s a racial controversy over a planned meeting at a Houston high school.

Klein Oak High School is expected to host a meeting and apparently only black students have been invited.

It is being called a unity rally, but in this case, it means only African-American students were invited and only African-American students would be in attendance, according to district officials.

The idea is reportedly a collaboration between black students and administrators at Klein Oak High School.

When asked why only black students are being allowed to attend the meeting, school officials say they wanted those students to feel comfortable to attend.

The meeting is scheduled to happen during second period today.

One parent of a African-American student says she is not happy about the meeting in the least, and the students themselves are wondering why they are being singled out for their race.

The parent who spoke with abc13 says she wants to know how this is supposed to make students feel free, and is worried the district is trying to begin a new form of segregation.

    So where is the other rallys for the poor and the immigrant families you said you would do. Are they going to take place or what. If all whites had a rally the blacks would be going crazy. To me this is a form of segregation for all races and its just causing racial tension. You messed up oak. Lucky someone hasnt called a civil lawyer yet.

    it’s crap like this that keeps racial tensions heightened. get over it people. hey black people, hey brown people, hey white people, hey red people, hey yellow people, hey rainbow people, there will ALWAYS be differences in race, creed, ethnicity, religion, sexual preference, and socioeconomic status. there will ALWAYS be richer and poorer people in the world. we are NOT all the same, nor were we meant to be. they can’t do anything “whites only” anymore for fear of racial backlash from the rest of society. that fear should be widened to any type of exclusive group that tries to include only one kind of people. whites only, blacks only, latinos only, asians only, native americans only, gay and lesbian only, or any other kind of anything only should be banned…period.
