I see a lot of people my age (16) getting news from snapchat. It is honestly all clickbate with awfully short articles that often are quite one sided.

I think the Kyle kid whose Harvard admission was rescinded is probably an overzealous white male whose had every opportunity handed to him on a silver platter, and who is VERY likely prejudiced against people of colour. That being said, in this day and age it's extremely difficult not to have some prejudice, at least implicitly. I am sure he holds a million values and opinions I would vehemently disagree with him on, however his past words should not have had this great an impact. I have said so many racist things in jest in private conversations with my friends that it would be hypocritical of me -- and surely of many other young adults -- to pass judgement on Kyle. If Harvard is so interested in the prejudices of their students, their application process should include a more objective test of racism/any other -ism or -phobia than sifting through comments and accepting screenshots of private conversations. I understand that looking for PATTERNS of aggression and -isms in applicants' social media is useful, but catching the odd statement should either 1) have no consequence or 2) flag the applicant for further interviewing/testing before admission.

I know from the perspective of Harvard, it would be a massive waste of resources to further scrutinize applicants when they receive such a large volume of applications that every red flag can easily (and from their perspective, usefully) be an automatic out. However, such a process could not possibly ensure their students are the best of the best. They're just selecting students with no online presence, or a careful online presence -- neither of which cases eliminates the possibility that the applicant is a raging racist. A racist can be careful, anonymous, calculated. A racist who's applying to Harvard would surely be all of those things.

It is simply a stupid process.

I get my news from Google. I try and find sights that aren't politacly motivated to manipulate the story. But there are some that I believe. I also watch some news on tv but honestly I can't stand those people. Not to mention I don't trust them. I also trust you to be truthful and not focus to much on how you feel about the story. In a world full of fake news stories you have to be extra careful.

There _is_ a lot of news on Snapchat. Unfortunately, it's all clickbaity, misleading, blatantly partisan non-issues.

Ya know... I almost bought that bullshit from Kashuv. Then, as per usual, Phil presented the dissenting opinions and my eyes were opened to the shallow, although well-crafted, argument that was Kashuv's attempt at accruing pity. I do feel sorry for the position some of these controversies have put him in, but I hold to my previous stance, that he is allowing himself to be guided down a dark path, and by doing so, damns himself in my eyes. Overall, I pity him little, and resent him far more, along with those who have manipulated him into espousing his misguided rhetoric. Regarding Harvard, I will not be fooled for one second into thinking what they did was ANYTHING but a PR move. But I dig the end result nonetheless.
JustPassingThrough - 3 months ago
Huh. Looks like Max Landis' treatment of women is as bad as his treatment of scripts. And that is unfortunately saying a LOT...
JustPassingThrough - 3 months ago
Regarding Gay Hell, I like the defiance. I like where he's coming from, and I'm always down for ruffling anti-pride feathers. However, I actually am of the opinion that flying the Pride Flag in place of the American Flag isn't something worth fighting for in that specific context. I believe that, given the function of the U.S. embassies, the Trump "administration" does have some moral wiggle room there, and vice versa for the other side. Obviously Trump and his lackeys are motivated by homophobic agendas, but I can't really bring myself to be that perturbed by this SPECIFIC end result.

Those "racist" comments when shown in context change a lot. The first one makes it beyond clear that he was not stating his opinions on black people. He was shitposting. The second one was also very clearly not racist in the least, and was just edgelord speak given the way he called himself a pasty jew.
These are not offensive comments that need to be apologized for. These are personal messages that had no right to be publically published. The sheer desperation in trying to discredit this young victim is astounding.
His beliefs on guns being good is all you need to know that this boy is damaged and confused. His activism stands on it's own as awful. We don't need to pretend he's racist. This boy needs a proper education, keeping him from Harvard sounds counterproductive.

The entire Harvard story disgusts me. How hippocritical do people have to be? Are the seriously under the impression that NONE of the other students have said offensive things? Are they seriously saying that THEY THEMSELVES haven’t said offensive or racist things in the past? I think if you dig deep enough you can find evidence of just about everyone carrying some form of prejudice. I say, as someone who is deeply left wing, that Harvard’s conduct is disgusting and hippocritical. Racist jokes made by a 16 year old are in no way indicative of present character.

I’d just like to know if someone can make a mistake in JUNIOR high and it not count against them in college admissions? If not, what about middle school? Elementary? What’s the age at which you can make mistakes and it not hurt your college admissions status?

Just goes to show what universities like Harvard are really about. They don't care about educating an ignorant class of people but preserving an image of higher educated rich people. No one could or should deny Kyles responsibilty over his use of the "N-word" however I believe that universities should be a place where all sorts of people from various backgrounds should come and learn and be taken out of their comfort zone. Universities like Harvard are showing that actually they're afraid of views that may damage their reputation as an institute and business.
Harvard only take on the already educated they're not interested in educating the ignorant or challenging biggotry. It's an elitist institution for middle and upper class snobs. The Median income of families who go to harvard is like $160,000 and only like 1.8% of student are from poor backgrounds with some becoming rich later on which isn't a bad thing but serves my point about elitism. I can applaud Harvard for not wanting racism in it's university but they sure hate the poor like most American universities. They're classist which is another form of discrimination in my opinion.

I say it all the time and I'll say it again. So long as you call yourselves said word, regardless of whatever spin you put on it, you have zero rights to get offended when someone else says the word or calls you that word. That being said nobody should be punished for mere words. Had there been activity behind it? Okay, I could see Harvard declining over fears of having that come onto their campus. At the same time I don't agree with him bring up Harvard's past. Slave owners were a part of the college because slavery was normal and accepted back then. You can't fault them for that. It's pretty scary how things can come back to bite you though. Run for president or congress and every single thing you did online, possible ever, gets picked through with a fine tooth comb. Shit you don't even remember yourself winds up getting found. Unless it's a recent past people shouldn't be judged by past behavior, not unless the behavior was incredibly violent or just violent in general. That warrants caution.

I am part of Gen Z, and consume news via one of the following mediums:
1. Philip Defranco videos
2. The BBC mobile app
3. Newspapers
4. Other news websites such as those of News24, the Guardian, the NY Times or CNN
Social media's primary purpose (in my opinion) is social interaction, and therefore I do not generally trust it as much as the four stated above.

29 year old: I get my news from the traditional dutch new channel NOS (which is the most normal and neutral news in the netherlands so your basic economic and war things), your channel, sometimes the Al shazeer by your reccomendation, TLDR on youtube for european things and not much else. I have grown distrustfull of most news outlets and take all news, including yours unfortunatly, with a grain of salt. However your take on international but also new media news is very relevant for me because I do a lot on new media and you don't talk too much about the drama (sometimes you do though, personally I could do without but to each their own :D)
I look for neutral, fact based and show-your-research type of news, plus some general economic, world and new media news.
Hope this helps!

There are very few people I know who haven't made racially insensitive comments, some as nasty as Kyle's. While I think consequences are essential and keep us accountable and introspective about our actions, I'm not sure that taking away his spot does that. I'm positive that some of the other students in the incoming class have made racially insensitive statements. I'm torn about what consequences are the right ones.

my opinions are mixed with kyle kashuv- i agree that attitudes can change, however harvard was only treating him fairly. i believe this kind of action would be taken with any student who had past behavior exposed in this way. going through high school, my class, at least, was constantly reminded of this. we were always told that our actions as students could and would reflect upon us during college admissions, and to take care in choosing our actions with this in mind. and oh, ben shapiro. “a standard nobody can meet”? really? harvard’s standards may be high, but i think not using racial slurs would probably be one of the easiest parts of the harvard application process, no?

I don’t know about the whole Kyle thing. I openly said the n-word with a hard r when I was 14 but now I’m not so ignorant and I understand that’s wrong.
It would be better if they gave him a talking to and let him know that if he does it again then he will be expelled.

I think it would be interesting to see how Harvard has rescinded applications over the years. Like back in 2012 when I was in high school would this have happened/would it happen as often as this happens like in the past few years and moving forward.
