Shocking shocker. The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (UNC) has admitted that 200 African and Afro-American Studies were essentially fake classes. Since the 1990s, classes focusing on black studies had class rolls inflated with athletes. It was discovered that there were 500 unauthorized grade changes. Supporting the evidence that the classes were a sham, a UNC athletic tutor, Mary Willingham, discovered that UNC athletes had deficient reading abilities. Willingham has since been suspended for using data that would need to have been approved for use by a review board.
The classes were largely untaught and unsupervised. This was underscored by the felony charge against UNC former Department Chair Julius Nyang’oro, after receiving at least $12,000 for teaching a class he did not ever show up for during the summer semester of 2011.
The university continues to peddle the meme that classes were not created for athletes to get passed through the system .
“Although we don’t have evidence that the anomalous courses were initiated in order to benefit athletes, close to half who did enroll were student-athletes,” Chancellor Carol Folt said in an interview with the News & Observer.
