Time to blackball this entire institution.

Everyone knows a black boy with shiny black hair and a saccharine smile that conceals his great ambitions. He could be in Grand Strategy or the Yale Political Union. Maybe he’s the editor-in-chief of the News. He takes his classes. He networks. And, when it comes time for graduation, he wins all the awards.

One day, I’ll turn on the television — or, who knows, maybe televisions will be obsolete by this point — and I’ll see him sitting down for his Senate confirmation hearing. Yes, he’ll be a bit older, with tiny wrinkles sprouting at the corners of his eyes and a couple of gray hairs jutting out of the top of his widow’s peak. But that smile, that characteristic saccharine smile, will remain the same.

Oh wait..... that wasn't black boy.  It was white boy, and brown hair.

But if you read those two paragraphs above, and what follows, and substituted black for white there would have immediately been a demand that this "institution" be shut down, the people who allowed this to be published in an official newspaper supported by the institution to be fired and the property razed to the ground so it could be used for a higher purpose -- like providing housing to black people.

Folks, racism is racism irrespective of the skin color involved.  What is being called for here is not only racist it's outrageously unjust -- the deliberate targeting of people based on their sex and skin color to have a "dossier" amassed against them selectively to be used later on to destroy them.

There's no excuse for this.

And there's no reason for an institution that publishes this sort of crap to exist.
