A Colorado elementary school tutoring program has posted a sign on its door: No whites allowed — and parents are infuriated.

Mission Viejo Elementary School in Aurora, Colo., recently set up an after-hours tutoring program for students who need a little extra help, but according to a letter to parents announcing the program, the program is only for students of color.

During the early 20th century, “Help Wanted” signs in Boston often included the notation, “Irish Need Not Apply.” During the Jim Crow days, those signs were replaced with “Whites Only.”

The goal of the civil rights movement of the 1960s was a world where a person is judged by the “content of his character” rather than “the color of his skin.”

It seems we’ve regressed — or maybe the school principal didn’t get the memo.

Parents who received the letter were shocked.

“I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” parent Nicole Cox, who is white, told CBS-4, a Denver affiliate. “We have come so far in all of these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally … this is a form of bullying.”

School Principal Andre Pearson contacted Cox when no one was home.

“This is Andre Pearson,” he said on a voicemail message. “It’s focused for and designed for children of color, but certainly, if we have space for other kids who have needs, we can definitely meet those needs.”

After CBS-4 investigated, the school clarified its tutoring policy.

“I think what the answer is, is that he [Pearson] made a mistake,” Tustin Amole, of the Cherry Creek School District, told CBS-4. “But we have had lots of students sign up for the tutoring. Many of them are white, and we will be accepting all of them.”

Crisis averted. But the question remains, why was the “no whites allowed” policy instituted in the first place?

    Geesh! Don't you people know anything? Only whilte republicans can be racist. Get that through your head. If those little kids needing the extra help would really sit and listen, maybe someone will tell them that it was white republicans who freed the slaves, way back when, from the southern white democrats. And ever since, it has been democrats who have been tearing black families apart and supporting a black holocaust (aka Planned Parenthood) by encouraging the slaughter of millions of black babies; and keeping them down with al the help they are getting, emasculating generations of black men by convincing them that holding out their hands is better than working with their hands; and eliminating the phrase "Black Pride" from the culture and the lexicon. Slavery is making a comeback. Thank those clever dems for that.

    what the hell is going on in this country? blacks make up only about 13 pct. of the population and yet, they are pushing around whites like they were nothing! this is simply incredible! when is white america going to stand up for their rights and for this blatant abuse targeted against them? seriously, i'm appalled at the lack of courage white america has been showing in this country for years. one word of advice, if you allow this type of reverse discrimination to spread and continue getting stomped, you have only you to blame and deserve everything done to you.

    You have obviously failed with your assessment here, James! THE POINT of the matter was that "this" particular little ten year old WHITE girl's parents apparently felt "SHE" needed after school tutoring, which WAS OFFERED… EQUALLY as much as the "children of color!" THAT'S the point, no race, based specifically on "skin color only" is SUPERIOR to ANY other race, which INCLUDES this principal, WHO happened to be a dark skinned biggot!!! THE CHILD WAS WHITE AND ASKED FOR ADDITIONAL "HELP" the very SAME HELP they gave to ALL the other "children of COLOR" it is DISCRIMINATION, and this prinicpal is NOTHING SHORT of a DISGRACE, to HIS race as well as EVERY OTHER RACE, that's HUMAN, TOO!
