Blacks are pissed off at Yale
Instead of being grateful for being admitted to one of the four best universities in the country, despite having much, much lower SAT scores than their white and Asian classmates, they are pissed off because some white residence hall worker said that students should be free to dress however they want to on Halloween.
They are also pissed off about a “whites only” fraternity party even though there is no evidence that anyone actually said that, and there is suspicion that the story is another case of racism being fabricated. The fraternity in question has members who are black, and also members who are gay.
Makes you wonder why Yale even bothers with affirmative action if that’s the thanks they get for it.

The outrageous email says, in part:
Is there no room anymore for a child or young person to be a little bit obnoxious… a little bit inappropriate or provocative or, yes, offensive? American universities were once a safe space not only for maturation but also for a certain regressive, or even transgressive, experience; increasingly, it seems, they have become places of censure and prohibition.
