The Black Bruins (by Sy Stokes, current UCLA student)

UCLA has less than 50 Black males in the entire freshmen class. This needs to change. I thought this post was appropriate since we are having a blackout football weekend. I wish I was more surprised at what a student exposed about his school.

UCLA has less than 50 Black males in the entire freshmen class, and the graduation rate is only 74% (lowest amongst high-ranking institutions). This needs to change. Support this petition if you think universities need more effective diversity intitiatives! Let's start with UCLA, and set the bar for the rest of the country!
