So of course Micheal Brown, now being celebrated in a break-out Twitter feature, got into all eight Ivies, and 12 more colleges to boot.
Micheal Brown, now choosing among elite universities like Harvard, Yale and Stanford, said he hoped to one day become a lawyer, perhaps a public defender. https://t.co/Be16Uk5cem— NYT National News (@NYTNational) April 2, 2018
Twitter labels the achievement as "amazing", but of course it's no such thing. It's standard-issue affirmative action.
Brown had an SAT of 1540 out of 1600, which puts him in the 99th percentile. He had a GPA of 4.68 at his Houston high school (against whom? I wonder). We'll assume he's a smart kid, but one with a huge racial advantage over the pool of equally-smart white kids.
The New York Times write-up, of course, includes no mention that Brown is black.
Alt-righters debate whether young whites should go to college at all, and if so, where. Learning a trade may be a surer route to fulfillment and economic success. College, of course, forces you to incur life-long debt for what's essentially a self-perpetuating left-wing indoctrination machine.
But college is still too tightly tied to the machinery of social and political change that American whites need now. I say aim for Ivy. I observe that what Harvard and Yale want, Harvard and Yale get.
