Playing golf tomorrow with 2 CEOs of forturne 100 companies”. I’m like “makes sense”.

All the ghetto schools get huge state funding

Camden schools don’t have enough books to hand out to the students, my aunt and uncle both taught there for 35 years. Why, because the ghetto ***** that run the schoool embezzel the money. I bet you those same black ***** ruining the lives of all the black youths in camden will make an arguement how the white man is bringing them down.

Literally have been thinking for years about taking 6 months off of work and going on a full on investigative journalist on them.


You from Camden? My fam lived there for a couple yrs for my dad's job (before I was born) back in the early 70s. Got p bad there so they rolled out. East Camden/Cramer Hill area. My brothers were all born at Cherry Hill hospital

Normal white kids are persecuted these days. I heard it from solbrothers, the guy who whines about his privacy while also posting his bank account balances.

How long before this gets made into a "fun" and "quirky" movie?

It's funny seeing the people who are up in arms about affirmative action being so apathetic to this.

Really? I mean this is a lot more serious than just having your rich dad donate the funds for a new building on campus in exchange for admission.

Rich people being scummy shouldn't come as a surprise but I think I'm more surprised at how complicit some of these schools were in this whole mess.

i’d like everybody in gdd to think about life would be like as a yale golf coach, or a faculty member at an ivy leauge school, and what you would seriously do when offered 100’s of thousands of dollars to just to accept someone in with very little risk of being caught, and even if you are caught the most that can happen is you lose your job.

I’d ******* sign that kid up in a heart beat. People make far less than that robbing banks at gunpoint.

I blame modern thoughts of Branding. Every one is trying to market themselves as a "Brand," including kids trying to get into college.

That include faking it.

On a sports level, I'm always surprise players are listed 1-2 inches taller in height on draft day, or pro draft information materials.
