“I remember hearing about a girl from my first high school who also graduated in my year (’06). She didn’t get into the Ivy League school of her choice but, instead of going to one of the other schools that accepted her, she walked around high school collecting signatures on a petition to prove to the college that their admissions department had made a mistake and that she deserved to be there. To be fair, it worked; the college let her in after receiving her petition. But I remember rolling my eyes and saying something about that being some “white people’s foolishness,” to my friends, because who does that?
Over the past few months the answer has become clear: White girls do that.”
This post goes out to some wonderful folks I know and cherish.

One of the most fascinating things I’ve read in a long time.

Being honest may not get you a lot of friends but it’ll always get you the right ones.
I hope so.
