The debate over affirmative action in college admissions
You know how the kid that gets into Harvard is always like, a 4.0 student who’s also a squash champion, the founder of 3 charities, and single handedly performs surgery on blind kids from Africa in his spare time? Yea, well, this has nothing to do with that…but does have to do with college admissions. That kid is just fucking annoying. There has been a lot debate recently over affirmative action in college admissions. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court upheld a Michigan law that bans publically funded colleges from providing “preferential treatment” in admissions decisions to “any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin.” So, basically, if your little sister is trying to get into UMich by saying she’s part Navajo, that’s not going to do shit anymore.

Sad an outcome as it may be, we have to admit this story is getting so old. Even CNN will be losing interest soon. Read article>>
Donald Trump thinks Obama walks like a pussy

Donald also has criticized Obama for flying in a 747 on Earth Day. All of Trump’s remarks were made on Twitter, since that’s obviously, like, the most mature platform to insult someone on. Donald, I think I speak for the rest of America when I say I’d rather have a president with a “hopping” walk than one who sends passive aggressive tweets like a 7th grade girl. Read article>>
