If someone says "fuck off UVA" and students at UVA get upset, they should understand that this is the purpose of the ding bar. But you don't have to be insensitive to minorities to get the point across.
I would love to leave the ugliness behind and continue ripping law schools.
I think the point is that he wasn't being intentionally racist, he was merely commenting on the truth that URM's get a boost and he doesn't.
It wasn't funny. But it really shouldn't be taken as that offensive either.
It might be hard to understand why it's offensive because you haven't had comments like that directed towards you. I don't care for the implication that URMs are keeping white people from going to law school.
Nevertheless, I got an apology from the OP and I have no hard feelings towards anyone.
