Minority Student Recruitment at University of Kentucky

    1. L. Hatemi
    2. Petition by

      L. Hatemi

      Buffalo, NY

If a great majority of Black medical students pay $58,000/year and children of UK administration get scholarships, there is something terribly wrong.
Please email: UKOpenRecords@uky.edu and submit the following question if you are curious. I promise they will REFUSE it. However they have to respond to you within 3 business days by Kentucky State Law. TRY and experience it yourself.

To Whom it may Concern,
Pursuant to Kentucky Open Records Act, I request the following information,
1- Number of black medical students admitted to University of Kentucky
Medical School between 2004-2012
2- Number of black medical students who discontinued their medical
education at University of Kentucky due to dismissal, academic failure
or transfer to another institution between 2004-2012
3- Number of black medical students who spent in excess of 4 years to
graduate from medical school between 2004-2012
4- Number of black medical students with in-state residency status who
were marticulated between 2006-2012
5- Number of black medical students who are not American Citizens or
permanent residents of the United States and marticulated between
2006-2012.

      Thank you for sharing your concern with me. I always enjoy an original message from constituents; you don't need to sign a mass e-mail petition. I'm working hard for you, and your family; I hope you reap the benefits. Take care, Kim

      Thanks for all your support. If you forward this petition to all your friends, we can reach 1000 signatures by midnight today. I plead with you to help me reach this target.

      5 minutes of your time can make a huge difference for a whole generation of African American doctors. Let's show the same courage that Lyman T. Johnson showed when he chose to attend UK in 1949 as the first black student.

      Dear Friends,

      Thank you very much for your support. We reached 300 signatures in just one day. By spreading the word and forwarding the petition to your friends, you support our cause in a very special way.

      You are witnessing history in the making. Racism can be eradicated if we stand together and ask for answers from authorities.

      As Kentucky's official state motto states, "United we stand, Divided we fall"

      Please continue to spread the word!

    7. UK Medical School refused access to a Trustee

      L. Hatemi
      Petition Organizer

      Did you know that a UK Trustee, Professor Irina Voro also could not access the demographics of minority students at UK Medical School. They do not want you to know that a great majority of black medical students pay $58,000/year in tuition alone at University of Kentucky.

      The stupidity of some Black athletes is truly amazing. Why they continue to attend these racist schools without doing some research and understanding the ''history'' is crazy.

      As a nation, and as the State of Kentucky, we should ensure there are ways for all people to participate in every aspect of our society. College is the place to start!
