Both teenagers were accepted into Harvard University.

Here’s why…

1/ THREAD: Harvard rescinded my acceptance.

Three months after being admitted to Harvard Class of 2023, Harvard has decided to rescind my admission over texts and comments made nearly two years ago, months prior to the shooting.

I have some thoughts. Here’s what happened.

2/ A few weeks ago, I was made aware of egregious and callous comments classmates and I made privately years ago – when I was 16 years old, months before the shooting – in an attempt to be as extreme and shocking as possible.

I immediately apologized.

Here is my apology:

3/ After I issued this apology, speculative articles were written, my peers used the opportunity to attack me, and my life was once again reduced to a headline.

It sent me into one of the darkest spirals of my life.

4/ After the story broke, former peers & political opponents began contacting Harvard urging them to rescind me. Harvard then sent this letter stating that Harvard “reserves the right to withdraw an offer of admission” and requested a written explanation within 72 hours.

5/ I responded to the letter with a full explanation, apology, and requested documents.

6/ I also sent an email to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to seek guidance on how to right this wrong and work with them once I was on campus.

7/ Harvard decided to rescind my admission with the following letter.

8/ Somewhat ironically, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion sent me this response regarding my apology:

“Thank you for your email. We appreciate your thoughtful reflections and look forward to connecting with you upon your matriculation in the fall of 2020…”

9/ After receiving Harvard’s letter revoking my acceptance, I responded by asking for the opportunity to have an in-person meeting to make my case face to face and work towards any possible path of reconciliation.

Harvard responded by declining my meeting request.

10/ Harvard deciding that someone can’t grow, especially after a life-altering event like the shooting, is deeply concerning. If any institution should understand growth, it’s Harvard, which is looked to as the pinnacle of higher education despite its checkered past.

12/ I believe that institutions and people can grow. I’ve said that repeatedly.

In the end, this isn’t about me, it’s about whether we live in a society in which forgiveness is possible or mistakes brand you as irredeemable, as Harvard has decided for me.

13/ So what now? I’m figuring it out.

I had given up huge scholarships in order to go to Harvard, and the deadline for accepting other college offers has ended.

I’m exploring all options at the moment.

Reactions:

The progressive black balling of Kyle Kashuv is a reminder that there’s no concept of grace in the secular religion.

One of the predictable lessons from the Kashuv situation: people will avoid public life. If Kashuv hadn’t become an activist after Parkland, he’s never targeted.

This mob was being led by the worst elements on the right, including open bigots, and the worst elements on the left. I hope those that joined in to target a kid are proud of themselves.

If you don’t think race-baiting pays well, just ask this co-founder of Black Lives Matter. Also, send a tweet Al Sharpton’s way – considering the guy has made a career out of it and became a multi-millionaire along the way. From The Daily Wire: After reports that a $1.4 million home in a secluded area of Los Angeles whose population is reputedly less than 2% black was sold to one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, some black conservative commentators took her to task. On Wednesday, dirt.com reported, “A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement.” Here’s a now-deleted tweet, mocking the BLM co-founder… VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gV19SstJcI

Biden May Send Taxpayer Dollars to Latin America to Stop Illegal Immigration At the Border

What a nightmare of an administration this has been.

Man, has Joe Biden’s first 100 days in the White House been a gigantic catastrophe or what? The thing is, we all saw this coming – even liberals, deep down, knew that Biden’s policies wouldn’t work. But all that mattered was getting back at Trump for…being too good at being president and defending America? What a headache. From Reuters: WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The United States is considering a conditional cash transfer program to help address economic woes that lead migrants from certain Central American countries to trek north, as well as sending COVID-19 vaccines to those countries, a senior White House official told Reuters on Friday. The potential program would be targeted at people in the Northern Triangle region of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, Roberta Jacobson, the White House’s southern border coordinator, told Reuters in an interview, without saying who exactly would receive cash. Roughly 168,000 people were picked up by U.S. Border Patrol agents at the U.S.-Mexico border in March, the highest monthly tally since March 2001 and part of steadily increasing arrivals in recent months. Instead of doing this Joe, why not just go back to the way Trump was handling things at the border? Suck up the pride and do the right thing, man!
