A small town Mississippi school is under fire by the liberal media for allegedly having a white girl with a lower GPA share co-valedictorian honors with Jasmine Shephard, a Negress.
The school says the two girls have an equal GPA, but Shephard is suing the school anyway. Shephard is reportedly angry that the unidentified white girl gave her speech first, although the school did let the black girl on stage first after she whined about that.
The most likely thing going on here is that when you have a school full of basketball-Americans, someone had to be #1 among the Shaniquas and Jamals. Shephard probably was bumped up to be co-valedictorian out of political correctness.

The Washington Post broke this horrifying news:
An African American woman has filed a federal lawsuit against a Mississippi school district, claiming a white student was named “co-valedictorian” with her daughter, despite the white student having a lower grade-point average.
The day before Jasmine Shepard graduated from Cleveland High School in Cleveland, Miss., in May 2016, the school awarded her and a white student the title “co-valedictorian,” according to the suit filed Tuesday in federal court in the Northern District of Mississippi. This was a first in the 110-year history of the school, the suit said, and the decision was made.
“Prior to 2016, all of Cleveland High School’s valedictorians were white. As a result of the school official’s unprecedented action of making an African-American student share the valedictorian award with a white student, the defendants discriminated against, says the lawsuit.
The black website The Grio adds:
It was the first time in the 110-year history of the school that there was a black valedictorian.
“Prior to 2016, all of Cleveland High School’s valedictorians were white,” the lawsuit says. “As a result of the school official’s unprecedented action of making an African-American student share the valedictorian award with a white student, the defendants discriminated against.”
A lawyer for the school district has called the suit “frivolous” and claims that the students had identical grade point averages.”
“As such, under school board policy, they were both named valedictorian of their graduating class,” Jamie Jacks wrote in an email. “The district’s policy is racially neutral and fair to students.”
Jasmine’s mother, Sherry Shepard, said it was easy to find out there were discrepancies between the two students grades because the community is so small.
“These children have been attending school with each other since middle school,” she said. “We know the schedule, we know what they take, and we have a good idea where the discrepancy lies.”
According to the lawsuit this situation follows “on the heels of a federal judge’s ruling that the Cleveland School District had failed to desegregate its schools approximately 50 years” after being ordered to do so.
Perpetually aggrieved, aren’t they?
Co-valedictorians are common across the country. Here’s Jasmine’s courses and grades:
