From newser John Hawkins:
An Open Letter To All The Fragile College Students In Their Safe Spaces
Nobody wants to hear a college student from freaking YALE complain about how tough and racist it is at college.
Newsflash, you pampered little asshats! It doesn’t matter what color you are: if you’re going to college in America, you’re one of the most privileged, least discriminated-against people on Planet Earth.
I can’t even tell you how pathetic it is to hear pampered kids TWEET about racism like it’s the 1940s because of First World Problems most people don’t even consider a mild inconvenience.
He also notes,
Incidentally, I don’t want to make this sound like black college students are the only ones acting like fragile little flowers. There also seems to be an almost unlimited supply of airheaded white kids who are also marching and making demands.
We demand that our student loans be paid off! We demand free college! We demand a $15 minimum wage! More.
No indeed! It was largely white students who, in a typical show of cultural imperialism, perfected the art of being useless, whiny, pampered little parasites, dorking out on campus at someone else’s expense.
Unfortunately, fellow taxpayer, it could be yours or mine.
Why not lobby for an end to funding for arts programs? It’s generally the STEM students whose skills we actually need.
People can freak out about their problems on their own dime or on welfare.
