nobody is laughing at you.  perhaps you need to grow a little bit of a thicker skin and stop throwing your insecurities onto everyone else.

ACK!

It's fine to disagree with me.  I just don't enjoy being laughed at for simply raising this topic.

I'm sorry you're having such a tough time in Virginia, and maybe there you are a URM. But to suggest that Jews are underrepresented in the legal profession is laughable…

Previous Poster: Have you looked at the composition of the faculty and trustees of those universities? In many cases Christians should claim URM status. Get real.

This is what I'm talking about.  Christians should claim URM?  They are the majority.  How does that make them the minority?  Also the "get real" can be equated to "ha ha."

How are we not underrepresented?  We are probably not underrepresented in NY, but I go to school in the South, and I can tell you that we are SORELY underrepresented down here, even moreso than African-Americans and Hispanics.

I go to a school in the south. There are more Jews here than African-Americans and Hispanics combined. What are you talking about???

this merely points out the fallacy in your argument.  you say jews are underrepresented at your school and in the south.  yet, there are schools where christians could also be underrepresented.  does that mean that christians should get urm status??  hell no!
