Other Information: End racism in Boston at the Boston Architectural Center- The center of racism in boston, Black & Minority students (past student/alumni as myself) are being discriminated against and are suffering from unfair behavior/policies and rouge/abusive, belligerent/hostile, practices-degrading actiond at the prejudiced and biased school.

Boycott The BAC!!
End the unfair & unethical practices at the Boston Architectural College/Center (night school) that deprive Black Americans/other minorities of color of the rights for promotion, advancement and fair treatment.

END RACISM IN BOSTON: Black American issues must be included and resolved not excluded and dismissed by architectural educational institutions. After 20-30 years of struggle for Diversity in Boston the BAC continues to drive time backwards by displaying an all white-only student/building signage-advertisement which excludes Black Americans and other minorities struggling to be recognized as architectural achievers.

ENDING RACISM IN BOSTON: Black American issues must be included and resolved not excluded and dismissed by architectural educational institutions

Protest and rally against racist building poster/banner-advertisement, institutional misconduct and deception/fraudulence at the segregated Boston Architectural Night-College/ center that promotes a white-only image and vision and architecture and the city of Boston.

We need to change the architecture business /professional and industry by not promoting the same white-only images that were prevalent during the 1980s. The time for critical address and change has come and we cannot let deviant-escapist/racist culture continue to dominate the future of Boston and America.

We need to end racism in Boston by targeting racist institutions that promote hidden subliminal racist advertisement /propaganda and marketing that promotes a white-only image/vision of architecture and the city of Boston. Our passive Mayor Menino is blind to the facts of racism in Boston as well as BAC president Ted Landsmark.

Therefore we the people and leadership of Black Boston must protest against racist activities at problematic, dysfunctional/racist, predominately white-elitist institutions such as The Boston Architectural Night-College/ center of (new form) racism in Boston.

We must be active in emphasizing that hidden and subliminal/covert racism is unacceptable, and covering-up racist hostile, prejudiced acts of misconduct by staff/faculty and administration will not be tolerated.

We must Change the negative-abusive/racist culture at problematic educational institutions such as the (racist) Boston Architectural Night-School /College and therefore address the failed leadership of racist and prejudiced institutions & organizations around Boston by asking the failed leaders often token Black Americans such as Ted Landmark to step down, resign and make room for new leadership, new direction and new vision.

Failed Black Lawyer Ted Landsmark fails to address racial discrimination/oppression and abuse of Black Alumni/students (graduates) at the all- white only educational institution called the Boston Architectural College/Center. Over the present and past years The BAC now defined themselves as The BAC Boston Apartheid Center of racism, discrimination and abuse has continued to promote the white only image and vision of architectural student/professionals,achievers and varous building advertisements and huge building posters.

Boycott The BAC!!

The BAC and the AIA continue fail in addressing and promoting diversity/Black/Americans in Architecture over the past 30 years.

“False/over-promoted black people/professionals (tokens) cannot change the face of Architecture”

BAC President fails to address oversight issues regarding Black student/alumni(graduates)/professionals Ted Landsmarks oversights led to the hanging/promotion of a racist building poster/banner-advertisement, much due to institutional misconduct and deception/fraudulent that has been going on for many years/recent past – at the segregated Boston Architectural Night-College/ center that continually promotes – a white-only image and vision and architecture and the City of Boston.

The center of racism in Boston: The Boston Architectural Center/night school (college/old boys club)

Exposure Architecture –“Save The Institute” is about the protest and affairs regarding the demolition/razing of the John D. O’bryant African-American Institute at Northeastern University in Boston. The students protest regarding the plans the University had to demolish the Institute/Center rose to the level of various affairs in the media/press. As in the case of various urban/community-neighborhood developments where local concerned residents/activist play a major part in voicing urgent concerns about a proposed project — The same was true for Northeastern Universities Black student population.
