A Colorado school principal is apologizing after he mailed parents a letter informing them that an after-school tutoring program was for non-whites only.

Andre Pearson, the principal at Mission Viejo Elementary School in Aurora, also left a voice mail message confirming that the program excluded whites.

“It’s focused for and designed for children of color,” Principal Pearson said in a voicemail to parent Nicole Cox. “If we have space for other kids who have needs, we can definitely meet those needs.”

The voicemail was obtained by CBS-4 News in Denver.

“I was infuriated,” Cox told the television station. “I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups.”

Just wait a week - there'll be plenty of no-shows and drop outs, and plenty of openings for clear people.

This is what we get living in a world where the perceived solution to racism is more racism.

White light is the presence of all color. Black is the absence of all color.

It's the absence of tutoring, apparently.

Along with a federal lawsuit. But because it was for colored students only, it's just a black eye for the school (pun intended).

Haha! I had to look that one up.

Most people here see no problem with that.

"Find another tutor!" - they'd say.

White is the balance of all colours; black is also the balance of all colours, where that balance is zero.

And colour has a "u".

You can also safely assume they will not take Asian or Indian children either. Those kids are just born smarter than everyone else. Why should they ever need any help from anybody?

And as someone who has around 125 students a year, I'd say that reasoning is wrong.

Education will mirror the values of the community from which the student comes. I have as many weak Caucasian students as I have weak Black Students. Moreover, my top five students are Black.
