I think there is more, much more to this story. I find it hard to believe she was shunned because her skin was TOO DARK? Let's hear the rest of the tale, please.

What's so hard to believe? I suppose it would be if you're used to white privilege!

How many more times do we have to put up with these false narratives?

It’s not true until we’ve heard the whole story.

Just because she made the dance team at Mizzou doesn’t mean she was qualified. Mizzou has a history of racist black privilege.

Maybe she actually is a good dancer. But she doesn’t sound as if she is a good team member, which would be a criteria for making the team. She didn’t deserve being included.

I find this story hard to believe too, kinda like the fireman who kicked the little black kid that didn't really happen. This has been going on for years and everyone is really sick of it. Black people can exclude white people from their organizations but if you don't put at least one black on a white team or organization you're racist and can sue. If she thinks she was discriminated against move to a black area.

idk, the text string is pretty damning. The courts shall decide.

She'll probably wind up working as a stripper and turning tricks.

Blacks are like children and they need to learn that in the real world not everyone wants to be around them. It’s like every kid having to get a ribbon or trophy now if they participate in a sport or contest. Just because a few blacks crash a white school doesn’t mean that extracurricular clubs or groups are going to want them and they shouldn’t be forced to take them.

Newsflash: Everybody hates negroes and nobody wants they around and with good reason.

Personally I see what happened here an invasion of privacy and the illegal gathering of a private conversation of two people. This so called child had no business looking around on a teachers private phone or looking at her messages as it appears she was and did. Text messages can encompass the same intimate subjects as phone calls, sealed letters and other traditional forms of communication that have historically been strongly protected. Any guesses as to how many actors get turned down for roles due to the shade of their skin and I am talking about white actors. When you are so different than the rest of the team that you ruin the team look as a whole you will be dropped or not picked. So the coaches or what ever used the term BLACK, so is it now getting to the point where white folks can no longer say the word black?

You should see how many Chiefs cheerleaders who try out that are not picked for the team every year for this very reason. When it comes to dance teams it's height, hair color and length and over all body appearance along with how do they look in the group. Honey Boo Boo is a very popular person but if she tried out for dance teams she would not make it due to her size and that's a fact. It isn't about how good you think you are it's about how you look standing with others of the situation.

A case in point, Keanu Reeves has starred in two John Wick movies and a third is in the making. Do you for one minute think this series would have seen the success it did if say Gilbert Gottfried had been John Wick? No way, it was all about appearance and fitting into the overall look of what the movie was about.
