American High tops Mission San Jose High

The same outfit that earlier this month named like a gazillion Mission San Jose High School students National Merit Scholorship semifinalists just announced semifinalists for its National Achievement Scholarship Program, which is also based on PSAT scores.

This time Mission only had one recipient and American High School had two. Newark and Union City didn’t have any, nor did any other public Fremont high school.

The reason for so few winners? The National Achievement Scholarship Program is only open for students of African descent.

    How racist. Aren’t we all of African descent (technically) ?
