  2. Congratulations..keep it up young man

  3. Sort of a stretch here, but hear me out. You know why extremist groups like ISIS hate America? Because we accept a pluralist society, where different cultures, religions, backgrounds are accepted as long as you believe in American values of freedom, liberty, and democracy. But look at the white nationalists in the GOP. They want a white, christian, straight, male-dominated society. That’s why it took centuries for Harvard to elect a black student president. So, in a way, MAGA is like ISIS, with less resolve. Yup. I said it.

  5. How many years has Harvard been around and just now this is happening. I’ll say what I said when the great Kobe caught and passed Shaquille’s ring count. What took you so long.
