As many as 15 percent of freshmen at America’s top schools are white students who failed to meet their university’s minimum standards for admission, according to Peter Schmidt, deputy editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education. These kids are “people with a long-standing relationship with the university,” or in other words, the children of faculty, wealthy alumni and politicians.

According to Schmidt, these unqualified but privileged kids are nearly twice as common on top campuses as Black and Latino students who had benefited from affirmative action.

Legacy is the real affirmative action…and yet we don’t see certain types of entitled people suing to dismantle that.

75 year old white man murders 13 year old black male neighbor in front of his mother as he brings in the trash →

hamburgerjack:

christel-thoughts:

  • white man had been burglarized
  • white man accuses black child in the neighborhood
  • white man “confronts” black child with gun
  • black child denies it (apparently, he was in school at the time)
  • unarmed black child is murdered (shot in the chest)
  • neighbors say the white man was a good neighbor and just seemed to be “frustrated” with the break-ins

does ANY of this sound familiar to you?

here’s the video of the news segment

Frustrated by break ins

SO he shot a Black child.

I’m frustrated by White people skate boarding and playing guitar.
