Black Teen Accused of Cheating on Her SATs While White Students Got Away With College Bribery Scandal

Miami, FL — A massive FBI investigation has revealed that several high profile white celebrities and business executives had paid a total of $25 million to get their children into high profile universities, even though they didn’t qualify to be admitted. Ironically, this nationwide college admission cheating scandal has brought back to mind Kamilah Campbell, an 18-year old African American high school student, whose SAT results were invalidated two months after she was falsely accused of cheating – allegedly because she had high scores. She eventually filed a lawsuit against SAT officials, claiming that they defamed her character and jeopardized her future. She, however, later dropped the law suit.

When Campbell took the SAT the first time, she earned a 900 score which is already good. However, she eventually received a letter from the testing company saying that her score was “invalid.” She took the test for the second time and she scored 1230, an improvement of over 300 points.

But once again, SAT officials said that her score was invalid. She said the Educational Testing Service, the organization that oversees the SAT, is accusing her of cheating.

In a news conference with her family and Benjamin Crump, her lawyer, Campbell said, “I did not cheat. I studied and I focused to achieve my dreams. To have your effort taken away from you, and them saying, ‘Oh well, we think you cheated.’ It’s not fair.”

Campbell said she wants to study at Florida State University but she can’t even apply until her score is validated. She has since sued ETS and said that they “violated Kamilah’s constitutional right to be considered innocent until proven guilty and denied Kamilah due process.”

Although Campbell and her lawyer didn’t mention race in any of their statements, many believe that her being African-American was a factor in the accusations.

Meanwhile, at least 33 white parents who are allegedly involved in what some are calling the biggest college bribery scheme of all time have been arrested and released on bail. Only time will tell if they will actually be convicted of their heinous crimes.
