STUDENTS DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS DECISION !!!!
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has been selected to speak at Spelman College for the college’s commencement ceremony next month and the decision has caused a lot of controversies.
Even at the campus in Southwest Atlanta, students are voicing their displeasure over the selection of Bottoms.
“I do not want her ’cause it does not seem like a good idea,” student Atiya Ziyad said.
Many of the students seem to think Bottoms doesn’t support the black community.
“She’s a very good role model, but that doesn’t mean that she should be a commencement speaker,” student Alexi Dickerson explained.
Some students said Bottoms hasn’t supported the Atlanta University Center and said she’s in favor of gentrification.
“Gentrification isn’t really a good thing for black areas because it doesn’t help the black people rise up,” Dickerson said.
