His life is over. No job for him. It's either suicide or welfare for life.

In other news. Smart people say stupid stuff all the time.

Harvard was wrong. When I was 16 I did some crazy crap. Social media is a bane against society. There is no statute of limitations, no forgiveness and no forgetfulness. Harvard should reinstate the kid.

I'm sure the harvard admissions people have 100000 better things to do than to listen to a teenager apologize for using the N-word repeatedly online. He won't attend harvard but he has learned something valuable from this.

While Harvard is within their rights to rescind his acceptance, they perhaps should do the same to every possible candidate from now on who has said the N-word for the sake of consistency.

Publicizing and politicizing and posting all of his current disappointment, correspondence and criticisms may reveal he indeed is not yet mature enough to deserve a spot in the Harvard class of 2023.

All things are not Left and Right issues, folks. However, the child has shot himself in each foot. Once when he was 16 and now at 18.

I raised a son. I'm sure he did some dumb chit at 16 but he wasn't dumb enough to put racist messages on social media. He wasn't dumb enough to WRITE IT DOWN.

These kids are warned over and over - by parents and schools that social media is forever.

I'll bet my son would have gotten kicked out of his grad school program at a state school had posts like that turned up. Who would want that teaching freshman college kids?

Did Harvard equally scrutinize David Hogg's social media rants and decide he was the type they wanted? If so then Kashuv is better off not attending this institution.

I used to believe in global warming when I was 16... But at that age, I believed what teachers told me without question ... And found out that people are not as honest as they would have you believe...

In 2017, at least 10 prospective students had their admissions offers rescinded, and the Harvard Crimson reported that those students had traded explicit and racially offensive messages in a private Facebook group.

That decision sparked criticism from some that Harvard was censoring speech and being too politically correct and praise from others who maintained admission to the elite school is a privilege that can and should be revoked if it appears not to be deserved.

Harvard was NOT wrong. The comments were made only two years ago. The shooting made him less racist? More likely is he just didn't expect the comments to be made public.

Further, if Harvard denied someone else based on such comments, they could point to Kyle and say "his comments were worse and you admitted him!" Or Kyle could say or do worse in the future as a Harvard alumni with Harvard on record as having known before he was admitted.
