Lincoln University is refusing to give diplomas to two dozen obese students who ditched a health class. Now people are asking why the black community is ignoring a more critical issue? really? Plain and simple, these students knew they HAD to take this class, but didn't. Now it is being brought down to a racial level and we have to wonder why Wholefood's doesn't accept foodstamps? Right...let's blame THEM for obesity! Last time I checked, Costco sold fruit and vegetables too!

Well there isn't usually Whole Foods Markets in impoverished areas, but Whole Foods does accept EBT cards, all chain grocers do. Man WFM has gotten a bad rep lately.
Anyway there is a correlation between poverty and obesity, but I don't think you have to eat badly because you are poor.

Now that is ridiculous. You pay for a class and don't attend?

Rules are rules. You ditch a mandatory class, you do not pass and you do not graduate, period. Skin color does not matter-
Clearly, not the brightest bulbs in the light, either.

No one has to go to college,nor did they have to go to this university.They made a choice to attend this school with its clearly stated class requirements.These requirements were in their degree plan from their freshman year ,if they didn't like the degree plan and its requirements they could always transfer to another school.
