Allen West’s Message To Harvard Snowflakes Decrying ‘Tuition Fee’ Racism!

Life isn’t about getting a participation trophy and nothing in life is free — earn it and find your own self-esteem. ~ Allen West

As Written By Allen B. West:

One of the themes I’ve been using in speeches recently is the “culture of the participation trophy.” And as soon as I make that reference, the heads in the crowd nod and smiles appear as everyone knows about which I’m referring.

Once upon a time misguided adults who wanted to feel good about themselves came up with this most insidious idea. They believed it would be “fair” and engender self-esteem if all the kids on the athletic fields got a small plastic trinket — it became known as the “participation trophy.” There were even instances where adults lobbied to rule no scores should be kept.

What these adults failed to realize is that the kids always keep score. The kids know who put out the effort, who had “skin in the game” and who rode the bench. But now, this culture of the participation trophy and the sense of entitlement has become a cancerous agent within the millennial demographic. It’s now all about free stuff, social justice, and safe spaces. Don’t believe me? Well, here’s the latest example.

As reported by the Washington Times, “A group of Harvard Law School activists are demanding the graduate school do away with tuition fees, which they argue are “racially biased.”

Members of the group Reclaim Harvard Law School published an open letter Sunday addressed to Law School Dean Martha L. Minow and members of the Harvard Corporation — the University’s highest governing body — demanding an end to tuition costs that they argue impose an unfair financial burden on students of color, The Harvard Crimson reported.

Tuition at the law school will rise to $59,550 for the 2016-2017 academic year, and students are graduating with an average of $149,754 in debt, according to the law school’s website. Reclaim Harvard Law called the trend “outrageous” and asserted, “as a matter of justice, education should be free.”

“The effects of HLS’ astronomical tuition fees are racially biased,” the group wrote in their letter. “Due to the legacy of centuries of white supremacy and plunder, people of color are less likely to have amassed wealth in the United States. Therefore, these fees disproportionately burden students of color, not only by creating a barrier to attending HLS, but also by constraining the career choices of those who do attend by saddling them with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. How can Harvard Law graduates be expected to advance justice or the well-being of society when they are forced to make career decisions based on paying off this burdensome debt?”

The group did not provide any proposals on how Harvard Law School could feasibly do away with tuition, saying, “answering this is the very job we are paying extraordinary amounts of money for them to do.”

Ok, now that you’ve stopped shaking your head, pounding your fist, laughing your butt off, or spitting your coffee, let’s assess this. First of all, here are kids who’ve qualified to attend a prestigious institution but now say the fees are “racially biased.” Now of course, that is a load of bovine excrement because tuition and fees are not calculated based on race. So how is it that the tuition at Harvard Law School is “racially biased’?

Ah yes, it’s because of the “legacy of centuries of white supremacy and plunder.” Yep, you got it, it was the superior white man who kept these poor black kids and their families from amassing wealth. Yep, that ol’ Oprah Winfrey has really and truly been suppressed and kept from being able to amass wealth.

I have a question, if there’s a law school ….

    How about they pay more attention to their classes and less to “Social Justice” which doesn’t mean anything in the long run. Too bad they didn’t learn as a child that you have to earn what reward you are given, there is no such thing as a “Free lunch”, someone has to pay for it, and personally I am tired of paying for others free everything.

    A course in economics 101 should be required in all colleges in the first semester. Perhaps they will understand how the real world works………maybe……hopefully?

    • ronigee dawg

    • ronigee dawg

      i’m guessing most of the “spammers” are being hacked, no?

      • Moss500

        No! Most of the spammers are hacks. And, do your quotes suggest that you don’t consider them to be spammers? Posting unpaid, unsolicited advertising in a comment section is spam … plain and simple.

        • ronigee dawg

          no … the quotes were for my assumption that people were being hacked and their profiles used without their knowledge … not the ones actually doing the spamming. Carry on! ;-D I’ve been flagging them all along, but not to your extent.

          • Moss500

            Flagging them on their actual profiles and submitting a complaint is the only way to stop them. No, l don’t think the spammers are victims. The same profile picture is being used with a different name. They’re just rude, inconsiderate no-talents who think they’re pulling a fast one.

  • ronigee dawg

    um … while the story is certainly grotesque … the context is actually precious. how many times have i LONGED for these hard left idiots to have their own universe to operate in so that we (productive people) would not be f*d up by their idiotic policies … in a twisted way – here’s your sign!!! LMAO.
