Hey Einstein,
In case you didn't know, the primary perpetrator was an Indian-American named Niranjan Shah. Let me guess - he is one of the secret whitey crackuhs thats keeps you down.
Like I said - your mentality enslaves you. Do yourself a big favor and follow the advice of Bill Cosby.
A person of even normal intelligence would be an Einstein to you, judging from your message. Shah was not the "primary perpretrator" and his actual involvement does not prove the allegation and phony stats in the original message. You should do YOURSELF a favor and finish high school. Don't play hookey on reading comprehension day.

You are a racist and bigot sir! Thank the lord that we finally have a President in place that will right those wrongs! I am sorry that the courts say Prop 48 is legal and superior African-American athletes take advantage of it to go to college...how much money do they make the Universities so they can give out other scholarships. I am talking about too many unqualified White kids getting into out Illinois University when they should not...athletes are forced to meet a certain criteria.....the white kids that get in on clout meet NOTHING!!! Except that they are rich and have connections. It is time to level the playing field!!! Yes we can!
