"At this point none of the schools I've applied to said they give merit scholarships, so I'm praying that they give me some more financial aid or some money, shout out to all of those schools, please give me something," Ifeoma said.

Are. You. Fucking. Kidding me.

Nog gets accepted into the eight best schools in the country and has the gall to ask for gibs?

I was eligible for a 5,000$ scholarship (about half my semester tuition) simply for being a girl trying to get a science degree. No achievements required, just for having a vagina and wanting to learn science. I don't know how people like this accept these free rides without feeling demeaned, honestly. Like people literally don't even expect you to do well so now they're going to pay you just because you showed interest in studying? WTF? That doesn't scream equality to me at all.

Lower middle class is pretty much a free ride at Ivy Leagues, you get so much financial aid since almost everyone there is fucking rich. Race doesn't matter, an ex-marine white male paid almost nothing to go to Yale Law School, and even wrote a book about it. Mentioned that everyone, including the minorities, were extremely well-off and oblivious to it.

Also, while it's true that black students have lower acceptance standards at Harvard, it's still higher much than those of the children of alumni. It's not like they recruit hood rats to bolster their diversity, they instead just get rich minorities who went to private school to brag about it. These schools aren't about race, their about class. They are the epitome of classist scum.

Yeah, they find the richest, whitest minorities possible.

That way they can pat themselves on the back for being diverse and inclusive without filling their institution with... y'know, violent nogs.

Applied to Ivy League; expected merit scholarship.

Not our kind, dear.

It's great to be accepted but you need to be able to pay for it. honestly - I'm a white woman and if I was accepted to those schools I'd be jonesing for scholarships just as hard.
