Your Black Scholars Speak Out on the Morehouse Shooting Incident

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

After the recent shooting incident between two Morehouse College students, we felt compelled to make sure that Black scholars from around the nation had an opportunity to chime in. 

Juan E. Gilbert, Ph.D., President of the Brothers of the Academy

“When I saw this story on CNN, I thought there was something strange about it. Here’s a young man that is a 2nd or 3rd generation Morehouse man that had to leave school after being shot by a young man that is graduating, what? It appeared to me that there is more to this story than meets the eye. I don’t know the full story, but there has to be more to this story. Lets keep it real, I am all about giving a young Black man a second chance, but how did he get to come back to the same school as the victim? I don’t have answers, just questions.”

    Based on some of the supportive homosexual comments coming out of this college expressed on some web sites, I wouldn’t be shocked if this incident was driven by homophobia. Why do “Black Scholars” get to exclusively weigh in on this sad story? Common sense tells me that no reputation on earth protects any group from discrimination, fear and hate. An education doesn’t make you as good as you think you might be. In a public restroom or a private bedroom, what you do matters. I cannot speculate on the cause of this event, but in my eyes it’s a local story and not news.
