Higher education in the United States has become a total joke and this is proof. The kid in this story just wrote #BlackLivesMatter over and over on his application to Stanford. Not only did he get in, he actually got praise for it!
The Independent reports:
Muslim teenager repeats #Blacklivesmatter 100 times on Stanford application and is accepted
When Ziad Ahmed was asked on his Stanford University application “What matters to you, and why?”, his answer was clear.
He wrote: “#BlackLivesMatter”, repeating the hashtag exactly 100 times to highlight the excessive use of police force which disproportionately kills black men and women.
The practising Muslim senior high school student in New Jersey has since been accepted to the prestigious University.
“Everyone who received your application was inspired by your passion, determination, accomplishments, and heart,” the acceptance letter read.
It added: “You are, quite simply, a fantastic match with Stanford. You will bring something original and extraordinary to our campus – a place where you can learn, grow, and thrive.”
Mr Ahmed told MIC that he was “stunned” to be accepted.

“I didn’t think I would get admitted to Stanford at all, but it’s quite refreshing to see that they view my unapologetic activism as an asset rather than a liability,” he said.
The student tweeted this yesterday:

Stanford should be ashamed.
