And isn't that the problem? Where are the blacks? What is it about black culture that prevents them from climbing the ladder the same way poor white kids do? AA's been going on for a while now, yet blacks (and other URMs) are still about as underrepresented as a group as they were before. Maybe they need less of a hand up and more of a kick in the ass as a culture. Just a thought. I mean, the poor whites aren't there based on some poverty boost, after all.

Quoting for posterity.  This just about says it all.

I would not like them near cats.
I would not like them made out of mats.

LOLZ! 

This is fascinating stuff.  If I'm as bored tomorrow as I was today, I'll waste my time pwning you.  Then you can come back with your asinine rebuttals, and we can do this ageless LSD AA Board dance like so many before us.

I'm still on spring break and would love to see this. Personally.

Saw dashrashi's LSN site. Since she seems to use profanity, one could say that HYP does not necessarily mean class or refinement.

Yes, pwning... by continually asking for readily available definitions...

Who even says pwning? Besides my idiot roommate, of course?

Quote away. I don't delete. Edit for spelling/clarity sometimes, but that's about it.

Oh, pshaw. I personally like it when the bigots out themselves. It's harder to get them to do it on the Personal Statement Board,* know what I mean?

*However, not impossible.

But what if they're already well established?  Do we need more?

Better you should know, as my yiddishe bubbe was known to say. Someone new and stupid often finds a way to chime in. For instance: penni_rose! Good to know!
