If there's anything I learned from Hollywood concerning my own ethnic community, it's that snitches end up in a dumpster on L street.

Also, we really like blasting Spanish rap/hip-hop from our subwoofers. And we only wear solid white tee shirts.

Question about resumes: how detailed are you all being about classes, research, etc? Does that really make sense once you're more than 1 year out?

at my school if you know that someone has cheated and you don't report them then you are in violation of the honor code.. it makes most people too paranoid that big brother is their classmate... also, no one knows who sits on the honor council at my school so it's like there's secret spies who are always watching.. Big Brother is watching y'all

Hi team,

There's been a wave of acceptances at NYU, so heads up if you haven't been on the status checker today! There might be good news :)

*Fingers crossed*

I often think "wouldn't it be grand to go back to the 40s and 50s and sing with Frank, drink martinis at any hour of the day, wear fedoras without lookling like a doucebag, and go to swingin jazz clubs?"



then i remember that I'm black and that no, it wouldn't be grand.


I hate having that realization. I am enamored with so many different historical eras. The unpleasant truth that I would actually be miserable in all of them is sad. :(

I'm an old school hip hop junkie though


What do you think of Gambino's new album? I'm actually enjoying it more than Drake's most recent effort.


How do I miss Gambino new album talk. smh but I love it I havent listened to anything else since it dropped. Def on my top 5 rap albums of the year list.

In other news got an invite to interview with Georgetown today so at least i'm hearing somewhat good news so far.

I read this, and I still dont understand why he even did this whole experiment.

Like black folk saying this for years aint enough?

Completely fine. I did similar things plenty of times in UG, usually with an explanation or a cite. And urban dictionary is (i would guess) the only authority you could cite so I wouldn't worry about it.

Yeah he should have quit when they refused to arrest him. Like he didn't even really see much more than what a movie or any black person who has been arrested couldn't have told me

I could not imagine being on probation and someone telling me I couldn't leave new york city without permission. That's crazy to me.

I was confusing this guy (David Panton) for Tessanne Chin's husband ( the Jamaican girl on the voice) but then I realized that he's the father of Wendy Fitzwilliam's son (she is the Trinidadian that won Miss Universe in 2008). While goggling him I realized:

a) He is Jamaican
b) He is one of two black presidents in the history of the Harvard Law Review (the other being Mr. Obama)


Happily, this situation has changed dramatically. In 1982, Annette Gordon [Gordon-Reed] ’84 became the Review’s first black female editor. Since that time, there has been a steady stream of black editors, including two elected to the Review’s presidency: Barack Obama ’91, in 1990–1991, and David Panton ’97, in 1996–1997. Today, there are nine black women and men following in Houston’s footsteps. Perhaps most tellingly, when I asked these editors whether they knew how many blacks had served on the Review since Houston, no one could tell me. This is as it should be. It is a testament to how far we have come that every new black editor no longer needs to know his or her exact place in the history of this 75-year connection between the Harvard Law Review and the struggle for racial justice. Harvard Law Review article


This inspired me to start studying for my 3rd retake in February-->random but totally inspiring as I am from the Caribbean like him and we have similar backgrounds.

He is also the father of Lisa Hanna's son. Lisa Hanna was Miss World in 1993.

He is what I want to be when I grow up.

Yeah, I know but I left that part out because I did not want to make him sound like an educated baby daddy.

That's how it goes in the Caribbean.

Wealth/Good Looks= Numerous kids with numerous women


But he is very accomplished/well connected + apparently he is into mentoring so I am considering sending him an email-->maybe he would respond :D

On another note, I did not have time (or a television) to follow The Voice but Tessanne Chin is killing it check out a few of her performances-->

He is though. Nothing wrong with that!

As a proud Caribbean male, I only hope I can live up to his shining example.
