You Can Take Chanequa Out of the Hood, But . . .: Affirmative Action @ Harvard Leads to Murder

By Debbie Schlussel
I love the hypocrisy of Harvard. The school preaches liberalism and tells us we should practice the same kind of race-based affirmative action and “outreach” to the inner city that Harvard preaches.
For years, Harvard has pimped this limousine liberal kind of thinking on America. But now that Harvard has finally reaped the “rewards” of this kind of policy, the hypocrisy of the Ivy League screams in crimson.
It’s the story of Chanequa Campbell. The woman is Black, from the inner city, poor, and friends with drug dealers, whom she brought onto the Harvard campus. We don’t know what kind of grades and test scores Chanequa had and whether they were achieved at an easy school. (She got scholarships from the New York Times and Coca-Cola, but both give minorities a “leg up.”)

Chanequa Campbell:

She Let Murderer Into Harvard Dorm, Now Cries “RACISM!”

But we know she came from the mean streets of Brooklyn’s Bedford Stuyvesant ‘hood. And if Harvard’s affirmative action policy is anything like every other university in America, and especially the Ivy League schools, then it’s a good bet Chanequa’s grades, test scores, and level and quality of her high school education don’t come anywhere close to that of the White students admitted to the school and many of the White students rejected from the school to make a place for Chanequa.
But, hey, Harvard preaches creating opportunities for inner city minorities without the qualifications, at the expense of deserving people with the qualifications who had the misfortune of being born White. Sadly, though, now that Harvard has also reaped the results of those policies, well, the school isn’t so liberal anymore.
The Harvard politics of “inclusion” are out the window. And so is Chanequa.
On May 18th, Justin Cosby, an alleged drug dealer known as Harvard students’ dope dealer of choice–not a Harvard student, was murdered by another person, Jabrai Jordan Copney–also not a Harvard student, in an attempted robbery in Chanequa’s dorm, Kirkland House. Chanequa is close friends with Copney’s girlfriend. Somehow, these malefactors ended up in a secure Harvard dorm where they could only be with a Harvard student identification electronic key card of a resident of the building (hey, like Chanequa).
Yes, this Harvard student from the Hood brought the Hood with her to Harvard. And these liberals who thought they were “down with the struggle” ain’t so “down with the struggle” now that “the struggle”–including drug-dealing, armed robbery, and murder–have been brought to Harvard Yard. Now they know what the rest of America is thinking when Harvard preaches the politics and policies that bring this kind of thing upon American neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools every single day.
This isn’t about a race. It’s about a culture. Yes, there are Black students who’ve been admitted to Harvard on their own merits, who’ve been an attribute to Harvard. Alan Keyes is among them. This isn’t about them. This is about the Chanequas who are only at Harvard (and a gazillion other schools, admission into which they don’t truly qualify for) for one reason and one reason only: their race. And the Chanequas who blame the consequences of their bad choices after they’ve been given unearned opportunity at Harvard (and colleges and workplaces around America) on one thing: their race.
That’s what Chanequa Campbell is doing right now, after a murder on campus resulted from her bad choices and behavior. She’s doing the usual: playing the race card. Crying, “racism!”
Chanequa Campbell was banned from entering her dorm room or from graduating from Harvard. Movin’ on up to the East side (or East coast Ivies) isn’t so easy after all.
She told the Boston Globe:

I am being singled out. . . . The honest answer to that is that I’m black and I’m poor and I’m from New York and I walk a certain way and I keep my clothes a certain way. It’s something that labels me as different from everyone else.

Uh, no, Chanequa. What labels you as different is that you let a murderer on campus. And a drug dealer, too. And one murdered the other in the building where you live. (Not to mention, the different admissions policy that allowed you into Harvard in the first place.)
What if a White student let in a drug dealer and a robber/murderer into a Harvard dorm and a Black student–say, Chanequa–was killed? Do you think there would be cries of “racism” then? Or would there be calls from and protests by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to bring the evil White student to justice?
Harvard ordered Chanequa Campbell off campus on Friday and served her with a “no trespass” order, something the hypocritical liberals at Harvard would yell and scream and whine and cajole about if people in a working class area evicted someone for doing the same thing. Or if they said they didn’t want busing or the like.
It’s funny when the shoe is on the other foot. Or in this case, the liberal noblesse oblige crimson silk stocking.
If only Harvard and other institutions accepted students based on merit and scholarship, rather than the color of their skin, the type of indoor plumbing, and their ethnicity, the school would, in general, have a far more responsible student body, whose members wouldn’t just let anybody have their key to the dorm. But this is what you get, when you give people a sense of entitlement who haven’t earned it.
Campell has a history of crying racism. In the past, she whined to The Harvard Crimson that Harvard doesn’t care enough about Black History Month.

[Black people] have made significant, influential contributions to American culture and society and global well-being–and there’s no recognition. And that bothers me. There’s been no real community-wide outreach.

Wrong. There’s plenty of recognition. What color is the President of the United States? And there’s plenty of “outreach” at Harvard. The outreach is the affirmative action for minorities, which apparently allowed her admission into Harvard.
If only she was as worried about her own “outreach”–whom she let into her Harvard dorm–as she was about salving the noir chip on her shoulder.
Now, she’s getting all the recognition she deserves for her own “contribution” to Harvard: murder.

OK… how about naming some of the “significant, influential contributions” to “global well-being”?

Doda McCheesle on May 27, 2009 at 3:28 pm

—->”OK… how about naming some of the “significant, influential contributions” to “global well-being”?”
That isn’t really the issue or even germaine to this topic. the whole point is, as Debbie said, there ARE qualified minorities that work their a$$es off to get into quality schools legitimately. This is a case of someone “getting over” at the expense of someone else because of misguided seneses of “equality”. I doubt there are many among the Sharpton Sharpshooters who even have a clue of what equality truly is, or if they do it scares them.
I went to school (undergrad, masters and phd) just ‘up the road” from Harvard at MIT. Harvard has been reknowned as an ultra liberal hypocrisy for a long time. the old joke is “How do you get to Washington? A: go to Harvard and turn left”. This is nothing new, btu only points out the utter hypocrisy of the lear-jet/limosine liberal crowd who suddenly cant’ quite live up to their own professed standards when it comes and camps in their back yard. Equally so, those who undeservedly “feed at the trough” and push aside the qualified and personally-responsible deserving, will never have enough wallowing in fantasy victimization. I say bring Uncle Jesse and Al your pal on and let the lefties eat their own in this case. I’ll personally stand back and point and laugh as it unfolds.

Mistress_Dee on May 27, 2009 at 5:52 pm

Debbie, I’ve seen this happen many times before (but not to the extent of murder). Young first generation college Black women goes off to college. On campus, the ratio of Black women to men is 6 to 1, as Black men are unfortunately not going to college nearly as much as Black women, especially at Ivy League schools. And the few Black men on campus are either a little “soft”, have 50-dozen other girlfriends because of the skewed ratio, or exclusively date women “other than Black”, or are young men from “old guard” Black families who better not even think about bringing a “Chanequa” back home to mama….Black American Princesses need only apply. And that doesn’t count the young men on campus that Chanequa may have rejected because they were viewed as too “nerdy” (yep, that was me in college!). So poor Chanequa reverts to hanging around the type of men she probably grew up seeing in Bedford Stuyvesant….the thuggish but charismatic drug dealer types. I know these are generalizations, but as someone who works with college kids on career issues (and was once a college student myself), I can pretty much tell what happened here. However, I am curious about the other Harvard student named Brittany Smith, who was the girlfriend of the shooter….her friends and relatives are wondering what the hell is she doing getting involved with all of this. But I believe she fell victim to the same poor dating choices as Ms. Campbell….it’s called the “thug boyfriend” syndrome and too many young Black college women fall victim to this every day.
Debbie, I can understand your vehemence against affirmative action (although I don’t agree), but I’m sure we can both agree that drugs and illicit behavior were prevalent at Harvard and other Ivy League schools long before the “Chanequa’s” of the world got there (one of my company’s owners says her roommate at Wellesley in the late 60’s, who was from one of the more wealthy Northeastern families, was the biggest drug dealer on campus. That same woman is now a partner at one of the larger New York-based international law firms). What Chanequa did was bring the “street element” into it (armed robbery, murder). If she is indeed guilty of letting these criminals on campus, then Harvard did the right thing by banning her from campus, her cries of racism notwithstanding.
However, I do wish she would shut her mouth about the racism thing. Most older Black folks I spoken with about this who appreciate the value of an education are not in her corner….as they say, she blew it! If you have been accepted by and are about to graduate from what is arguably the most prestigious school in the nation, you don’t blow it by doing something stupid like letting drug dealers on the yard the month you’re about to graduate. You don’t get involved with some “thug boyfriend” just because they have personality and charisma and can throw down in the bedroom. But apparently this dealer was known on campus as the best connection to get some good weed, so he definitely was known by the students (although one student called him just a “two-bit” drug dealer). Whatever the case, this whole situation is tragic and sad and is a set-back to poor minority kids who truly are trying to do the right thing by getting a college education to lift themselves up. Unfortunately, this case also shows why more and more colleges are moving away from recruiting inner-city 1stGens and are directing more of their minority recruiting efforts at suburbia and private schools…in other words they want “Cosby kids” on campus and don’t want to take any more chances on the “Chanequas” of the world.
Sorry for the book Debbie…this case hit a nerve.

JibberJabber on May 27, 2009 at 5:53 pm

How ’bout they screen them based upon first name? Susan Campbell gets in. Chanequa, Lakesha, Chaquia Campbell do not. You give your kid an “African”, sepratist, “f*ck whitey” handle, and it spells hood rat any way you look at it.

spiffo on May 27, 2009 at 6:23 pm

Debbie, don’t forget the #1 all-time affirmative action recipient, President BHO. He got into Harvard Law as practicallly a political appointee, depite a lack of any ususal academic credentials. The he was a political hire at UC Law School, where he was escorted to tenure despite a lack of any usual scholalry credentials. And he used/sold drugs. What a country.

[This is a case of someone “getting over” at the expense of someone else because of misguided seneses of “equality”. I doubt there are many among the Sharpton Sharpshooters who even have a clue of what equality truly is, or if they do it scares them.]
Is there any actual EVIDENCE that this “Chanequa” person was the recipient of affirmative action? Debbie seems to ASSUME that she is (“if Harvard’s affirmative action policy is anything like every other university in America, and especially the Ivy League schools, then it’s a good bet Chanequa’s grades, test scores, and level and quality of her high school education don’t come anywhere close to that of the White students admitted to the school”), but where’s the proof? It’s possible that this student was an affirmative action admit, but it’s also entirely possible that she got in through her own merit. We just don’t know.
This doesn’t justify the student’s actions (though, it should be noted, she has not been charged with anything, and claims she was not involved in letting these guys in the dorm), it’s just interesting that Debbie and many of the commenters here see a black female student with a “ghetto-sounding” name, and ASSUME that she got in through affirmative action rather than her qualifications . . .
[JAC: I ASSUMED NOTHING. I CLEARLY STATED WE DON’T KNOW WHAT HER GRADES OR TEST SCORES WERE. HOWEVER, THE EVIDENCE IS THAT SHE IS A MINORITY–A BLACK WOMAN–AND IS THEREFORE JUDGED FOR ADMISSION ON A DIFFERENT SCALE THAN WHITE STUDENTS. TO DEMAND PROOF THAT A MINORITY BENEFITTED FROM AFFIRMATIVE ACTION AT A SCHOOL THAT OPENLY PRACTICES IT IN ADMISSIONS IS TO DEMAND PROOF OF A FACT THAT IS ALREADY IN EVIDENCE. THE BURDEN OF PROOF IS ON HER AND ALL MINORITIES THAT THEY DID NOT GET SPECIAL TREATMENT. THE GRADES AND TEST SCORES OF MINORITIES ACCEPTED INTO HARVARD SIMPLY DO NOT MEASURE UP TO THE GRADES AND TEST SCORES OF EVERYONE ELSE. NOT EVEN CLOSE. IT’S THAT SIMPLE. THAT’S WHAT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION DOES: IT CASTS DOUBT ON ALL MINORITIES BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT JUDGED ON MERIT ALONE, LIKE MOST OTHER PEOPLE. TO CLAIM THAT DOUBT IS UNREASONABLE IS TO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IS ALL ABOUT. DS]

Anonymous1 — Can you point me to any credible source on the net that confirms your accusations that Obama benefitted from an affirmative action program, that he was a “political hire” by the University of Chicago (he was President of the Harvard Law Review) and that he “sold” drugs?
A credible news source, please. Not a website called “The Obama File.”

Reminds me of how that other corporate bastion of liberalism, the New York Times, owners of the Boston Globe, threatened to shut down the paper if the unions didn’t agree to big pay and benefit cuts. If it had been some other corporation doing the same thing, the NY Times would have been screaming against it from its editorial page.

Greg on May 27, 2009 at 9:34 pm

I interviewed on four separate dates for a CIA position, many moons ago. They kept calling me back with more specific questions all conducted before different ‘specialists’ each time. By fate I saw the lead hiring official months later at a dinner house, and he had a few cocktails too many. Turns out they wanted to hire me but couldn’t because they needed an African American female. Did that hurt, or what? I am a White male. He apologized to me but it didn’t make me feel any better. THIS is equality?

#1Vato on May 27, 2009 at 9:38 pm

Middleman asked “and that he “sold” drugs?”
he said so in his own book. unless bill ayres got the facts wrong.
hard to prove anything with barry since all the schools have closed his files.
So who paid for his schools? no answer
what grades did he get? no answer
But since he never wrote an article for the harvard law review can give you a clue.
In the Marine Corps you would automatically be promoted to E-8 for recruiting an eligible black female law college graduate.

ender on May 27, 2009 at 9:46 pm

Middleperson: No, I can’t prove BHO sold drugs. Apparently the videotape has been stolen. I wrote the “used/sold” drugs thing because most casual users have sold a bit here and there, so its almost interchangeable, IMHO. And I can’t prove he was an affirmative action beneficiary either, as the list is apparently being kept with that videotape. But he graduated college with no distinction, or known accomplishment, and got into Harvard Law. He recently refused to release his college transcript. At UC, he was recruited and given tenure despite never writing any papers, while he was a rising local hack (even the NYT basically said that). And making HLR proves only that he is good at getting picked for stuff (there are no academic requirements). You can deny the obvious, but as my gf Debbie just said in capital letters, the facts are already in evidence for those who choose to see them.

At least they didn’t try to cover it up like Eastern Michigan University did when Orange Taylor III raped and killed a poor young girl in her dorm. Then again it’s not as easy to cover up a shooting. They tend to be louder than stranglings, or stabbings.

Norman Blitzer, once again flapping his ignorant dick sucker. Nothing racist whatsoever about my question- so why don’t you answer it, genius?
Many people are indeed quite curious as to what Mz. Campbell is referring to- indeed, we may have deficiencies in our “black history” educations- so enlighten us with facts, instead of hiding behind more accusations of “racism”. In an instant most of us can name quite a few non-Black contributors to “global well-being”, but can’t name a single Black one. Again, may be pure ignorance on their/our part…so help us out with information, other than George Washington Carver.
Literature? Culture? Arts? Science/Medicine? Technology? What? Where?
The whole point and problem is people like Mz. Campbell obsessing on issues of “race” where none exist, rather than actually doing anything THEMSELVES to bring further “global well-being”. What have racist hucksters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson actually accomplished for their race in positive terms? They got civil rights legislation passed? No. They got affirmative action/underprivileged programs in place? No.
One would like to believe that when WE (the American people, majority NON-BLACK) elected a NON-WHITE man as PRESIDENT of THE USA, the race baiting games would have ended. Over 50% of voters selected Mr. Obama- yet less than 30% of us are Black. So who voted for Mr. O? A bunch of racists?!?
Of course, we know YOU did, Mr. Blitzer…
[DM: SORRY, BUT I DO THINK YOUR COMMENTS BORDER ON RACISM. BLACK AMERICANS HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THIS COUNTRY. ONE PERSON THAT COMES TO MIND IS GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER. THIS IS ABOUT A CULTURE, NOT A RACE. PLEASE CONFINE YOUR COMMENTS TO THAT. I CANNOT ALLOW RACIST COMMENTS ON THIS SITE. DS]

Doda McCheesle on May 28, 2009 at 10:21 am

regarding Debbie’s comments to JAC above:
My feelings on affirmative action can bes tbe described by telling you of my experience…
Migh tbe old news, btu my Dad was refugee (they called them displaced persons or DP’s then) from Poland after WW2. He came here with nothign and worked his way through Princeton. My mother was a full blood Cherokee…
I went to MIT as I said above.. No legacy involved since my Dad did go to Princeton and my mother never set foot in a college. My maiden name ended in the quasi-typical “ski”. However, my physiology is undeniably native american- complexion, facila structure, straight black hair,etc. When I wento MIT, where I was admitted on my grades from having gone to a parochial/Catholic high school and on my college exam scores, my advisor was terribly dismayed that I woudl nto claim native american ancestry on enrollment. She was even more dismayed because I positioned it in these terms:
I want to be juged or evaluated on my own abilities and accomplishments, and NOT bundled in a wrapper or class of people who get where they are on special considerations. When we get to that level then and only then will we have true equality. You shouldn’t get a pass because of the permutations of genetics or circumstances of birth. Self reliance, self determination and an EQAUL chane are what it is all about.

I’m not entirely sure who you are referring to when you say “you all,” but if you are suggesting that I’m some kind of liberal defender of affirmative action, you couldn’t be further off base. I’m not defending affirmative action (or saying that it did not play a role in this situation), nor am I defending this student. All I’m saying is that we really don’t know the facts here. Waiting for the facts before jumping to conclusions is a conservative trait – we’re supposed to be the adults, remember?

I just did a little bit of research, and I’m not sure this is factually accurate. A quick google search turns up the fact that Chanequa Campbell graduated from the Packer Collegiate Institute in Brooklyn. I grew up in the NYC area, and am familiar with the local private schools, and I can tell you that Packer is ridiculously difficult to get into (and, yes, that is true even for minority applicants), and has a track record of sending graduates to elite universities. It’s not an easy school, and it provides a first-rate education.
Sure, it’s still possible that she got some assistance due to her race. But making it into and through a school like Packer and going to Harvard makes it quite a bit more likely that she was, in fact, qualified to attend Harvard than if she had gone through some BS inner-city Brooklyn public school that hands out A’s to the few students who bother to show up for class.

just another commenter on May 28, 2009 at 2:21 pm

Just like O’Bomber, whose record at Harvard we don’t know, but whose record at Columbia was not stellar, to say the least. He got into Harvard because of some Leftist/Muslim advocates, and was apparently funded by the Saddo Arabians. And now he’s dismantling America. When they criticize Republicans for racism because Conservatives oppose affirmative action, you should know that the Conservatives were right, and the Leftists were wrong.

yonason on May 28, 2009 at 3:15 pm

Debbie, when I was in my freshman year of college they had Black History week in the dorms. My roomate and I were given a questionnaire to fill out with all the famous Black people we were supposed to know about. Of course the black people we were familiar with were the ones we saw on TV. We filled it out with people like Ozzie Smith, Prince, Webster, Mr. T, etc. The funny part is that the correct answers were these obscure random people who were getting posthumous affirmative action, in a way. Does it really matter who invented the traffic light? Luckily we knew to throw away our worksheet and keep our mouths shut.

Anonymous1 on May 28, 2009 at 9:54 pm

Anonymous1.
As an avid history buff, I don’t believe in forcing people to learn what they don’t want to learn, but since when is it “posthumous affirmative action” to actually learn the history and contributions of fellow Americans? Because I enjoy visiting libraries and bookstores, I’ve read quite of few biographies of “obscure random people” of all backgrounds who’ve made significant contributions to American and world history. Most of those “obscure random people” that you refer to probably lived great lives and did great things and are only obscure because American schools do a very poor job of teaching American History (that’s why I thank God every day for the History Channel, which takes obscure history and people and makes them come alive) Mr. T? Webster? Don’t you see the irony of your post? Because you and your roommate were only being able to name Black folks you saw on television points to exactly why there was a need for a Black History week at your school. But it’s sad that few people, even college students, have the character and intellectual curiosity to look beyond their ingrained stereotypes and biases and actually learn about the history of another group of Americans. In college, I saw people who claimed to know all of the major American scientists, but when I tried to bring up a Percy Julian or an Ernest E. Just, I would get blank stares. But here’s the interesting thing…most of my classmates from European and Asian countries knew who they were, but American college kids didn’t know a thing about them. And the sad thing is a lot of these college kids from foreign countries know more American history in general, and Black American history in particular, than most American kids of all races do. That’s because they actually do something that most Americans kids don’t do too much of…they actually pick up books and read them.
You and your roommate did the right thing back in college by throwing away the worksheet if you weren’t interested. That was your choice. But your lack of knowledge and lack of interest regarding the contributions of fellow Americans does nothing to demean their accomplishments.
As an aside, if anyone is interested in some truly excellent historical fiction, I highly recommend Conn Iggulden’s Genghis Khan series. It is seriously hardcore! And for some fascinating writing on American history, I recently read “Public Enemies- America’s Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI” by Bryan Burrough and highly recommend it!

JibberJabber on May 29, 2009 at 11:59 am

Debbie, I could not finish reading this article. It was
You are such an IGNORANT bitch. You are absolutely sickening and clearly backwards in thought.
Who are you to determine whether or not Harvard accepts based on “merit and scholarship.” Instead of attacking the “Chanequas,” I am going to suggest that you focus on attack the Rachels, Sarah, and Johns who got into Harvard simply because they play the typical white sport (because they can afford it), and that their parents were fortunate enough to be born WHITE. There are about 2000 white athletes at Harvard, most of whom attended New England prep school. I am certain that you did not attend Harvard, so I can give a better account for the students who actually attend. You can only assume that Harvard lets in undeserving minority students. I can tell you that they do not. Because unlike you, I do attend the finest institution in the world– Harvard. You will never know what that is like, so please stop acting as though you do.
You claim to be unaware of Chanequa’s academic merits, yet you proclaim that Harvard needs to stop letting in “Chanequas” because they are not qualified. I happen to know Chanequa, and I happen to know that she had a 3.7 GPA. I don’t know which 2nd, 3rd, or 4th tier school you attended, but a 3.7 GPA is slightly better than an A- average at Harvard. This is a feat that very few whites (the truly “qualified”) have even accomplished. My suggestion to you is that you shut your mouth, you filthy, cretinous fiend.
There is so much wrong with this WASTEFUL, regurgitated “journalistic” prose– and I hesitate to call it journalistic. Seek help, you silly hog.

Harvard Undergrad on May 29, 2009 at 6:15 pm

JJ, thanks for the reasonable reply. I do disagree with you, of course. Learning about people who made contributions is a reasonalbe intellectual pursuit, but if you are learning about obscure people of a certain skin color or ethnicity then it’s more of an excercize in politics. It was posthumous affirmative action because some of the people were celebrated only because they were Black. Does Garrett Morgan otherwise merit any mention? Do any non-Black inventors get this type of treatment in the dorms? My lack of knowledge and interest was entirely appropriate in this case. I can assure you that most of the White kids found the whole thing a big waste of time and were quite unimpressed. If anything, it just reinforced a feeling that Black people were to be treated and judged differently, and not necessarily in a good way.

I am proud of my ancestors advancements and I am not guilty because yours did not…oops still haven’t in 2009? You have ACORN and OVER 1000 black ONLY associations and you still complain, complain, complain. My god you have Oprah, and Tyra Banks! Your parasites and we have been a host for too long. Africa is still throwing spears. If you don’t like it leave go back and help your third world country advance. You have no history, except our history. And you hate us for it. Harvard, Princeton, and other top Universities are throwing away good slots to the low lifes & undeserving. We spend so much time training & teaching dumbasses everything we know and they still don’t appreciate it. I wish you would all go back and help your own country. Your the dumbass jibberjabber and doddo.

Saxon, while you might “love” your white race, I doubt that we all love you. I, for one, don’t. Love is a two-way street, my dear. Stop speaking as if you’re a Harvard student. You have NEVER nor will you EVER grace the campus, much less sit in on a class to witness the extra 20 points that blacks are “given.”
Your ignorance is only one of the many things that prevent you from attending my fine institution. You are an unworthy, lousy cretin. This is why I don’t surround myself with people who do not attend or did not attend one of the schools in the Holy Trinity (Harvard, Yale, Princeton). You are a waste of time.

And you HU, exeplify the elitist, snobist, liberal attitude so prevalent in the Ivy League- you denegrade Saxon our of hand and being somehow “inferior” to you. WHile I dont’ agree with much of what he said, your commentary in reply speaks of a more pervasive “illness” among the limosine liberal crowd- no dissenting opinion tolerated and the mere reference to HPY as a Holy Trinity is an affront to christianty. Bear in mind that the initials of those schools come closer to being an acronym for “Hippy” than they do anything God-like.
My dad went to princeton. worked his tail off and he never saw it as elitist. In many ways, he found their snobishness to be laughable.
As I said above , I went to MIT. If you really are at Harvard, then you know at least one of the translations of the MIT graffiti phrase “IHTFP” reflective of Harvard…..
Get off your high horse. To quote one of my husband’s endearing phrases of command from the Air Force- “Get over yourself.. you ain’t that good.”

Mistress_Dee, as I said before, from now on, I will only converse with people who attend schools in the Holy Trinity. As soon as I saw that you attended that 3rd tier school in Kendall Square, I stopped reading your post. The only thing good about MIT is that it is close to Harvard. Sit your sorry-ass down, bitch!

evidence that Chanequa let a murderer on campus or was involved in this tragic incident in any way?

After reading the article and the comments, I have concluded that racism is alive and well in this country.
