Here’s the latest white woman to petition the Supreme Court to affirm that she was denied admission to college because of black people. And in her very first news interview, with Adam Liptak of the Times, she says “I probably would have gotten a better job offer had I gone to U.T.” Imagine that! And sure, yes, a plaintiff has to demonstrate injury in order for the court to establish justiciability, but really, from what dark, sequestered, fucked up inner reaches of our national psyche can someone find it in herself to say with a straight face that the reason she didn’t get a better job offer is because she went to one state university instead of another and that because of this highly tenuous leap of reasoning we should therefore dismantle an entire legal framework put in place to ensure that ours isn’t a country where the only people afforded the opportunity to attend college in the first place—and then wonder if they wouldn’t be even better off if they’d been accepted elsewhere—are privileged white people.
Anyway, fuck you lady!
Yeah and of course it’s POC’s fault. Not *her* fault for not getting high enough test scores, or doing well enough in school, or getting good rec letters. Not the fault of the admissions board of her first-choice school, who may have already had enough students in her major or from her high school or one of a million other reasons people don’t get into the school they want. Not the fault of the students who got in on athletic scholarships or legacy or because their older sister is the head of her sorority. It HAS to be the fault of the POC students who stole her spot. Oh, and the fact that she doesn’t like her job HAS to be the fault of her degree, and not of the generally shitty economy or her college grades or which internships she did or anything like that. HAS to be the degree that was wrongfully snatched away by a non-white student.
This is some racist entitled privileged bullshit. I’m sending out the White Women bus to collect this lady. Saying “my life sucks so it must be Affirmative Action’s fault” is just… there are no words, really.
UT… wait… UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS?! IN AUSTIN?! The black population there is TINY! Seriously, VERY small! Just in case you don’t believe me, here. Population of blacks is about 4%. 4%! FOUR. PERCENT. Seriously! For fuck’s sake! One of the reasons PoC don’t apply much, btw, are rumors of segregation and racism. That and, you know, WHO WANTS TO BE A POC ON A CAMPUS, IN TEXAS, WITH 4% BLACK PEOPLE?!
Ugh, this racist, useless bitch disgusts me. You’re just STUPID, hun! We all get rejected from colleges we want!
