It seems that ‘shrieking girl’ from Yale has been revealed to be one Jerelyn Luther. She is more privileged than you and I, put-together, in all of our guilty whiteness. She’s so privileged, and her parents so connected (because how else do you get into Yale if you are not ferociously smart, and she isn’t), that even her premature birth was chronicled in the New York Times back in 1996. She is the daughter of Peter Mubanda and Valorie Luther-Mubanda of Fairfield, Connecticut who likely live in a nicer house and drive a more expensive car than you do. One of Jerelyn Luther’s “loves” is world traveling. Hardly the mark of an impoverished child.
You should click on all of these links right now before they disappear, as she is furiously erasing her existence from the internet as fast as she can. She has already nuked her Twitter and Facebook existences.
Where she is most privileged of all is in her skin color (she’s an affirmative action admission so she can score up to 300+ points lower than you can on her SAT) and her parents money and connections, none of which are products of her own efforts.
One thing THAT IS a product of her own efforts is being on the search committee for the beleaguered Dr. Nicholas A. Christakis. So in answer to this poor shrieking violet’s question of “who the fuck hired you!?” The answer would be in part, Jerelyn Luther herself. Nicholas Christakis might not have known that at the time, but you can bet that Jerelyn Luther knew it. That makes her a liar too, but we already knew that as well.
