High School Student Has Been Accepted to All Eight Ivy League Schools

Mia de Graaf, Daily Mail, April 6, 2015

Harold Ekeh has a very tough decision to make.

The 18-year-old Long Islander has waited anxiously for weeks since sending off his college applications.

But he didn’t expect this.

Harold has been accepted by every single one–including all eight Ivy League schools.

‘It was crazy. My mom was sat next to me and it was just letter after letter after letter. I couldn’t believe it,’ Harold told DailyMail.com as he recounted the five minutes when acceptance emails came in from Yale, Harvard, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Pennsylvania, Princeton, Johns Hopkins, NYU, MIT, Vanderbilt, and SUNY Stony Brook.

Born in Nigeria, Harold and his parents moved to the US when he was eight.

He is now a straight A student, with an SAT score of 2270, at Elmont Memorial High School [Editor’s Note: The school is 78 percent black, 12 percent Hispanic, 8 percent Asian, and 2 percent white] in Long Island, New York, where he has served as editor-in-chief of his student newspaper and chief executive of the Model United Nations.

His success, he explains, is down to the submission essay, in which he described his family’s struggle to fit in after emigrating to America.

It was the resilience of his parents, former Target clerks Paul and Roseline Ekeh, that gave him the drive to achieve the best.

He told DailyMail.com: ‘It was such a huge thing for my parents to uproot our family, a family of six, from our home to a new country.

‘I was worried as a kid about speaking with an American accent, but they had to worried about actually finding jobs.

‘They joked that they came over for the 24-hour electricity. But I know it was so we would have opportunities as children.

‘No matter how many times they got knocked down, they stayed positive, and kept telling me that the secret to success in unbridled resolve.’

His achievement has been hailed as the American Dream, but Harold downplays it.

‘I just worked hard and took every opportunity that was afforded to me.

‘I came over with a very heavy Nigerian accent, but I did everything I could to integrate. Learning American history was really hard but I was determined to tackle it so I signed up for AP History as a junior.’

{snip}

Ultimately, he plans to be a neurosurgeon to study Alzheimer’s, a disease his grandmother suffers from. But insists he won’t just be studying.

‘I’m torn because each school offers something different, and there are so many different things I’m looking for,’ he said. ‘I want to go to a good school where I can study hard, but I also want somewhere where I feel comfortable; somewhere I could imagine calling home.

‘I also want to meet other students, make friends, travel, and do other activities.

‘When people ask me which one, I have said Yale so far because I have a connection with Yale. I went to Yale with the Model United Nations, and got to see how inspiring and interesting it is there.

‘I’m visiting a few this month and will decide at the end.’

{snip}

Harvard only accepts 5.9 per cent of applicants–roughly 2,000 of the 34,000 submissions they receive.

Yale accepts 6.3 per cent of the 30,000 students who apply, and Columbia only 6.9 per cent of 32,000.

Cornell has the highest acceptance rate of the eight Ivies–a minuscule 14 per cent of the 43,000 applicants.

{snip}

Last year, another Long Island high school student, 17-year-old Kwasi Enin, picked Yale after being accepted to every Ivy League college.

The son of Ghanaian immigrants, Kwasi had an SAT score of 2250, straight As, and wrote an essay describing his love of music which ‘sparked my intellectual curiosity’.

  • Last year, another Long Island high school student, 17-year-old Kwasi Enin, picked Yale after being accepted to every Ivy League college.

    I suppose this is going to be one of these “groundhog day” sort of stories every year at about this time. As if they’re trying to prove something to all of us.

    • Ludwig

      Kwasi Enin was accepted to all 8 Ivy League schools despite being ranked 11th in his class at William Floyd High School.

      • Dale McNamee

        11th. out of how many students ?

        100 ?, 1,000 ?… If so, his performance puts him into the ” Top 10% ” at least…

        And there were 10 students ahead of him who were ranked higher… How did they fare ? Where’s THAT story ?

        The real story is that skin color is not an impediment, nor an excuse…

        The character of the person is the driver…

  • anony

    My heart goes out to the eight better qualified Whites who were denied places at these schools.

    • Guest

      Well, with all due respect, whites had better teaching their kids to apply to all 8 Ivy schools with these credentials…then suing the hell out of them when rejected.

      The Nigerian kid sounds like a young person of merit. Not a low-IQ groid playing the race card like the Basketball Americans who want in at Yale because racism reparations Mike Brown Terrubul Legacy.

      • walt

        I guess you are unaware of how many points are added to your SAT if you’re a black african or the difference in a straight A student from a 78% black school vs one from a 78% white school.

        • Charles Martel

          How much play do they get with the essay portion of the SAT test for being groids?

          • walt

            Not sure but I think they get more points for writing an X than if they draw a stick figure.

          • Alden

            It doesn’t matter, black is in White is out. It is called “holistic” admissions

          • carriewhite64

            The essay grading will be, by its nature, subjective to a greater or lesser degree. There’s lots of wiggle room in essays, to enhance or degrade scores.

        • MathMan

          I’m not aware. How many points are added?

          • walt

            230. I’m pretty sure this guy gets even more points for being born in a 3rd world country. Probably a bonus for English as a second language also.

        • chuckles99

          Not one Ivy League university adds “points” to your score. The reality is that your score isn’t the most important factor. The thousands of kids rejected with great scores attest to the fact.

      • Xerxes22

        You have to send an application fee with each application. The universities do this to prevent university shopping by students applying to places that they have no intention of attending. The fees for an Ivy league school must be pretty high. I assume this kid got an exemption from these fees because he is Black. That is the only way he could afford to apply to so many Ivy League schools at the same time.

        • PissedOffScientist

          Not just application fees.

          “In December, Harvard University unveiled, with considerable fanfare, an extensive new financial aid program aimed at attracting students from upper-middle-class [black] families. Under the new plan, students from families with annual incomes up to $180,000 will be asked to pay a maximum of 10 percent of the family income for tuition and other fees at Harvard. For these students, the university will provide scholarship grants to make up the rest of the nearly $50,000 annual cost of attending Harvard.”

          Yale goes up to $200,000 family income.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            That is absolutely disgusting if true. I will follow up on your link after I’ve eaten.

          • listenupbub

            What happens if you make $181,000?

          • PissedOffScientist

            You hope Yale accepts your little genius.

          • Alden

            And Whites from families that make 50,000 don’t get a dime in scholarships and have to burden themselves with a load of student debt

          • chuckles99

            I’m white with a lower income family. I got a full scholarship from Columbia and great financial aid offers from Michigan, UVa, and University of Chicago. You don’t know what you are talking about.

          • anony

            anecdotal.

          • TooOldAndToughToEat

            Although the article you quote is from a black education journal and focuses on the effect on black students, the plan applies to students of all races.

            There may of course be additional scholarships for black students to further reduce the 10%, but the 10% cap really does apply to every student under that income level.

            I know a white student from a low income family who got a full ride to Princeton, for what it’s worth.

          • PissedOffScientist

            Indeed the tuition credits are not on the surface race based, however for every black kid with high six figure family incomes admitted, numerous better qualified white or Asian kids from lower income families are not granted admission.

            Hence in application it does benefit blacks at the expense of more qualified applicants of lighter shades, which of course was the intent.

        • chuckles99

          You don’t give fee waivers based on race. You get them based on family income.

      • Alden

        Whites have sued about des rumination in college admission and jobs.
        There is an occasional win but usually the Whites lose the lawsuits
        The White plaintiff gets the job or is admitted but the the institution does not change its ways
        As for lawsuits, lawyers, especially On contingency don’t cases unless they have a chance of winning or more usual a favorable settlement
        I’d estimate about $40,000 at the beginning for an attorney to start a case
        Better just check the black box and reap the benefits. It’s as most Whites will help another White. As we all know, the anti White movement is led by Whites

        The blacks and Hispanics are just the tools

        • LHathaway

          I agree with that. Most lawyers wouldn’t touch a case like this. Never the less, lawyering up, each and every time, if even to prove your point to the lawyer (or to make it easier for someone else) so at least someone hears your tale, this is a good idea in my opinion.

        • Tony Murphy

          “As we all know, the anti White movement is led by Whites”

          Well I’m not sure they regard themselves as White, at least as most of us on this forum understand it.

      • Snazzy Snook

        Is Harold Ekeh your new pet ?
        Why not sponsor him and pay his way through which ever college he picks,eh ?

    • PissedOffScientist

      A lot more than 8, and if you consider that Asians actually need a higher SAT score than whites to get in, it’s even more.

      This graph was under the old 1600 point SAT system.

      • LHathaway

        He meant the 8 of the 11 students who graduated higher than him at his high school. If the other 3 were non-white, or were White but were admitted to an Ivy league school, I do not know.

      • anony

        I mean the eight “positions”, one for each Ivy that accepted him, set aside for him.

      • chuckles99

        You focus on SAT scores. An increasing number of universities no longer use them. SAT are just one factor. Many, many white students get accepted with lowish scores provided they are interesting.

        • PissedOffScientist

          If my point had anything to do with SAT scores instead of the fact that lessor qualified blacks are admitted to Ivy League schools with the only “interesting” factor in that decision being their African ancestry your comment might have some relevance to the conversation.

    • Simonitz Levi Rothstein

      I think this young man from Nigeria was better qualified himself. Check out his SAT score: pretty impressive at 2270! He clearly tests within the 99th percentile. He won his accolades and admissions into these prestigious institutions through pure merit, sheer determination and intense hard work. I’m happy for him as he would serve as a great example for his community. Perhaps, his example would be effective to shut up the noisy oafs in the African American community who blame everything on others.

      Honor where honor is due!

      • anony

        He was given preferential treatment simply because of his skin color. Whites were discriminated against because of that preferential treatment.

        No honor there, ever. On the contrary, shame, shame, and more shame.

        I can never condone racial discrimination against my race.

        • chuckles99

          I just returned from admitted student day at Columbia. The majority of people there were white. The same is true at most universities. What are you talking about? You didn’t get in and so you are looking for an excuse.

      • 李冠毅

        I doubt that a White person with a SAT score of 2270 will be accepted into all eight Ivy Leagues. This whole incident stinks of the schools desperately trying to fill diversity quotas.

        • Simonitz Levi Rothstein

          From what I learnt, its more than the SAT score.Admission into colleges require a few steps:

          1. Good SAT scores ( Ekeh had a very good score)

          2. Good behavior records + Extra credits for extracurricular activities & community service( Ekeh clearly qualified in that too!)

          3. Essay – This is where Ekeh maxed with the admissions! He aced his essay with a coherent & articulate description of many interesting experiences. Now you may for personal reasons disagree with him and his ilk, but to a neutral spectator, it would be a different matter!

          4. I gotta give Ekeh extra credit for being a relatively recent immigrant, who came from an entirely different culture, nation and language and YET, managed to accomplish what most American born and bred, Blacks, Hispanics and Whites could never achieve!

          Trying desperately to discredit his success only reeks of the archetypal “sour grapes” complex which seems quite prevalent among quite a few Amren posters. We’ve got to be better than that. Logic & rationality needs to take the front seat! Where is John Engleman and “Jewamongyou” when you need them?

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Hilariously, you seem to have missed that you are replying to someone who is Chinese and natively living in China.

            Who, exactly, is the “neutral spectator” you are thinking of, if someone non-white from a different culture and country agrees that an acceptance to ALL EIGHT Ivy Leagues looks fishy, and you think they are – from half-way around the world – just envious?

        • chuckles99

          You’re very wrong. I’m white and have had the good fortune to receive financial aid to attent a great private school. Most kids who were accepted by the Ivy League had scores around that; many had lower scores. And the majority were white. The key is to offer more than your scores.

      • Reynardine

        Please stop trolling amren.

        Go back to Fox News and shill for Israel.

        • Simonitz Levi Rothstein

          So an honest opinion based on sordid facts is considered trolling? And what about Fox news? Is CNN & MSNBC now more acceptable?

      • BlueSonicStreak

        I do NOT think he would have been accepted to all 8 if he wasn’t Nigerian.

        But you are correct, his score is in the 99th percentile! I was actually coming here to say this – academically, sure he IS qualified for Ivy League?

        • Jeff

          The kid is definitely qualified for an ivy league education, of that there can be no doubt. Taking the Bell Curve into consideration, it’s my understanding that it doesn’t imply all blacks are semi retarded. If I read it correctly, logic wouldn’t preclude a black from being the most intelligent person on earth at any particular time. Bell says there just won’t be very many at any one time.

          I tend to think whites should use this young man as an example of the pernicious result of affirmative action. No matter what field he enters, he will always be subjected to suspicion that he did not achieve legitimate status based on his own merit. He will always be viewed as second rate by those outside his orbit. Perhaps many inside too.

            This is correct. High-IQ blacks exist, they just fall VERY far to the right for the curve of their race.

    • Marilynne Cathy Ousley

      of course, when it’s a story about crime, blacks fit right in. But if it’s a story about achievement, whites were always better qualified and were overlooked.

      You are despicable.

      • BlueSonicStreak

        SAT of 2270 is good, but isn’t really justification for all EIGHT Ivy Leagues, simple as that.

        • chuckles99

          Justification? What tosh. He is a spectacular candidate, has done exceptionally well despite very challenging circumstances, and will bring a lot to his university. Universities are looking for interesting candidates. I’m white and lower income and got into a number of Ivy League universities. Why can’t people just accept that they were rejected and stop looking for excuses?

          • BlueSonicStreak

            My comment has nothing to do with having been rejected from an Ivy League. I’m not American, and never had an interest in moving there for school.

            I said his score was very good. I said one or two Ivy Leagues should surely take him. But I didn’t see how he got into all eight when the article implies he got in primarily on a less-than-perfect score and a Diversity Essay.

            I have since learned that the article above left out a few salient things, like the fact that he is already involved in medical research. That potentially changes my opinion quite a bit. Sounds like he is going into medicine, and best of luck to him then.

            But based only on the essay and SAT score info – no, I stand by what I said earlier, I would not have considered him an all-eight candidate based on that.

      • anony

        If you deny the reality of Whites, especially White males, being discriminated against in multi-cultural Amerika, then you are a delusional lib-tard.

        Further, if you have the sense to, study the Bureau of Justice statistics on crime, and you will see that blacks, in fact do fit the stories about crime in America. They overwhelmingly commit most of the violent crime in America despite being only about 13% of the population.

        Be gone!

    • chuckles99

      How do you know the were “better qualified”? Grades and test scores aren’t everything. Many whites with lower stats also get admitted given their circumstances and what they bring their colleges.

      • anony

        Do you deny that affirmative action exists? Aa is discrimination against Whites.

        I suspect that everyone in this discussion understands that test scores are not the sole consideration for admission to a top flight university. Nevertheless, many court cases have agreed that discrimination against Whites occurs when affirmative action is in play.

        Everyone here also knows that there are highly qualified blacks, but the frequency of that occurrence is much lower than that for Whites and Asians.

        The instant case is of little consequence, but discrimination against Whites over the past fifty years through affirmative action is of great consequence. That discrimination will cost us greatly as a society. It propels the less qualified into positions of authority where bad decisions get made. Those bad decisions accumulate and result in bad outcomes.

        Discrimination against Whites is pervasive and not just in college admissions. You will discover this when you move into the working world. Even with your Ivy covered degree, you will not be immune to it.

        As a White male, you will fight discrimination for your entire career. I did, and have concrete examples, which I will not cover here. My Ivy covered advanced degree did not protect me. See, you were wrong again.

        And by the way, congratulations on your admission. Good luck.

            I have been in business for a while and have met my fair share of entrepreneurs. I have never heard of an entrepreneur hiring an incompetent person because of AA. Saying AA harms white people is delusional. Look at the software industry. Look at oil/gas, etc..

          • anony

            Where have you been for the past fifty years? Aa has been harming Whites for about that long. Ask some military officers who have had to deal with incompetent colleagues who were there because of aa.

            Every “student” who is “accepted” at college because of aa displaces a student who is qualified. Aa is aggressively used in the federal government and displaces better qualified Whites.

            Every major industry in America has a HR department which is mandated to reach a “quota” of minority hires. This displaces better qualified Whites.

            When qualified people are displaced by much less qualified minorities, we all suffer.

            “Every major industry in America has a HR department which is mandated to reach a “quota” of minority hires. This displaces better qualified Whites.”

            Utter falsehood. First, industries don’t have HR departments; individual companies do. Please show some evidence of these supposed quotas. I know none exist.

          • anony

            Your nit-picking is ridiculous. You know full well that my use of the word “industry” included the subset “company”.

            Of course it matters what college one attends; you said yourself that state schools are easier than elite ones. (Not that I agree with that statement). The big advantage to attending an “elite” school is the networking opportunities. Gross Anatomy is the same wherever one studies it.

            Believe what you want to, but AA is not only racist, it is harmful to a merit-based system. To assert otherwise is to ignore reality.

  • AmericanCitizen

    Every American black should be forced to read this young man’s story. Then we can ask the American black the simple question “Why are you (as a race) such a failure here in America – when you have every possible opportunity? This young man came here from Africa and excelled while his parents worked to support a family. What possible excuse do you (the American black) have for decades of poverty, crime, and illiteracy? Why is your race such a burden to this nation?”

    The answers to those questions should provide major comic relief.

        So let’s see, you are personally acquainted with the vast majority of blacks in America and are privy to their command of the lexicon or lack thereof. I mean, that is the only way that your statement would have even a modicum of veracity. But since people of your ilk have only a nodding acquaintance with fact based statements about any race outside of your own, I am not surprised at your vituperative and extremely spurious statements. I personally have probably forgotten more words than you’ll ever know. In conclusion, you are a scourge on humanity and nothing would make me happier than for your cardiac activity to be interrupted permanently.

          Look at you, trying to sound clever.

          Unfortunately for your argument, it is not necessary to be “acquainted with the vast majority of blacks in America.” It’s only necessary to know their literacy rates, with blacks being nearly four times more likely than whites to be functionally illiterate.

    Is it just me? Or does it seem like every year in April we hear some “feel good” story about a magic negro that gets accepted into every elite college in America?

    Like always the subject in question is always the son of African immigrants. For a white WASP male to get accepted into all 8 Ivy League colleges he would have to score a 2400 on the SAT, be an astronaut, and a world chess champion. That being said I prefer this over-golified negro to the usual brigade of young black males!

    • connorhus

      Would a White Male without family connections be able to get into any Ivy league school today? I mean I am sure there are a few but I am betting if you looked closely the openly accepted White Male that got in only due to ability is a statistical non-entity.

            I haven’t the slightest idea what you’re saying, but is that the new Peckerwood patois? I guess it beats that cockney crap that your predecessors taught the African slaves, which is the reason that black people had such a hard time with English for so long. Had they been taught by people who spoke proper English themselves, I’m sure they would’ve fared much better.

            The reason black people have such a hard time with language is that the sub-Saharan African has an average IQ of 70. The reason blacks in America have such a hard time with language is that their average IQ is only 85, and they are taught not to “act White”.

            Of course it will always be the white man’s fault that the negro is so stupid and cannot manage to speak correctly. My ancestors came to this country long after slavery was outlawed in 1863. Maybe you should take a good look at your own sorry a** if you want to be self-loathing. I’m not buying the “oppressed negro” explanation for the violent crime and stupidity anymore. Go sell it some place else.

        White males without connections or money, no matter what their academic qualifications, have no “diversity enhancement value,” hence are worthless in the eyes of elite college admissions officers:

        “When lower-class whites are matched with lower-class blacks and other non-whites the degree of the non-white advantage becomes astronomical: lower-class Asian applicants are seven times as likely to be accepted to the competitive private institutions as similarly qualified whites, lower-class Hispanic applicants eight times as likely, and lower-class blacks ten times as likely. These are enormous differences and reflect the fact that lower-class whites were rarely accepted to the private institutions [sociology professors] Espenshade and Radford surveyed. Their diversity-enhancement value was obviously rated very low.”

    An SAT score of 2270 is one that any person of any race could be proud of. However, this is only news because the student is black – Subsaharan no less – while it takes a perfect score for a white or Asian to make the news. I remember watching a news clip on YouTube about an Oakland black student getting a 2100 score.

    • Ultimate187

      Most White and Asian applicants with his score are auto-rejected unless they have incredibly noteworthy talents or achievements.

      • richard garyson

        I admit that since I never went to college, let alone an Ivy League one, that I am completely ignorant as to the requirements for admission, other than the greater the SAT score the greater the chance of admission.

        I have no doubt though that his acceptance into all eight schools is in large part due to his blackness. But an SAT score of 2270 is still excellent and extremely rare for a black to achieve, let alone a Subsaharan. It is probably the equivalent to a seven foot tall Pigmy.

          • richard garyson

            Thanks! About ten years ago, when I was desperately seeking employment – by means of a temp agency – I took a challenging quiz, intended to cull the wheat from the chaff. I was told I did well on all sections, save for the English composition and typo and grammatical errors detection. Humiliated – albeit undeterred – by this setback, I became resolved to master the rules of English grammar and composition. I was given another chance, and ultimately passed the quiz, but was never hired for the position. It was for best, as I went on to find a better job than the one for which I applied. A defining moment in my life, to be sure.

            I don’t have time to go into details, but many black people have commented to me how “lucky” I am to have the business I have. Actually, luck had almost nothing to do with it. I worked like a dog to acquire financial security. They look at a situation and attribute it to luck, which allows them to be resentful and jealous. They never see the hard work behind any accomplishment.

          • cherrie greenbaum123

            They tend to believe everything whites have was given to them. No hard work required. White privilege. Going without, skipping meals, walking instead of driving, hanging laundry out to dry on the line instead of using the dryer, these are things they don’t do if they have a bill to pay. Unlike whites who plan and amend their plan depending upon the progress their making. No future time orientation keeps them wondering how hard working whites accumulate wealth.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            Congratulations on your success. One of the benefits to finding a better paying job for which you didn’t go to college for is that you don’t have to worry about blowing a good portion of your salary on paying back “student loans” for what is pretty much a worthless college education.

            Just the other day, I read about this young woman about to graduate from college, up to her ear lobes in debt, with a major in Philosophy and NO job prospects. I think she went off to college to have a good time. Now, the good times are over with, and with a shoddy economy and a stack of bills that won’t quit, she’s about to get smacked with big dose of reality in a cold, cruel, uncaring world. Sad really.

          • richard garyson

            I agree. It is unfortunate that the masses have been duped into believing that – to quote Rodney Dangerfield – a man is nothing without an education. Even then – and perhaps unintentionally – “Back to School” illustrated what was and still is so wrong with our obsession with a university education.

            It is a shame that employers cannot simply give potential employees an aptitude test, to determine if someone has the mental ability to perform a certain set of tasks. One can be barred from manual labor for being outwardly lacking in strength, but this is not so when selecting for cognitive abilities. The only legally acceptable way to discriminate against the “stupid” is to exclude those who didn’t go to college.

            I have many co-workers who attended college and obtained worthless and unused degrees. I know people who obtained a degree in economics, but could not think practically, let alone outside the box, in an economic way.

      • Jonathan Vere

        I think 2270 might make it into the top half of test scores there. The obvious point is: how could any highly selective school turn down a black with such scores? He is way above the average for black students. His score could legitimately get him into an Ivy League college, but all eight of them? I knew an Asian from three years ago who scored somewhere in the mid-2300s, with great AP scores and excellent musical skills, who made the waiting list at one or two Ivies and was rejected at two others. TruthBeTold has it right.

        • ricpic

          Isn’t 1200 in English and 1200 in Math perfect? Not sure about this but I thought 2400 is the perfect combined score. Which puts 2270 pretty darned high.

          • John Smith

            No, 800 is still tops for each subtest, but they added a writing section in place of TSWE they used to use. Next year, they’re screwing with it again and the top score will again be 1600. Looking at Wikipedia, I see that scores are definitely inflated now and that my SAT score would’ve made me an average student at both Princeton and Yale back when I went to college (but my grades sucked).

          • Jonathan Vere

            Several years ago a writing sample was added, so it’s now three sections worth 800 points apiece. 2270 is an excellent score, but the Ivies are small universities/colleges and, I suspect, could fill their classes exclusively with students scoring above that.

Now, that said, he should be one of MAYBE 8-10 black students in an American college of ANY caliber from Ivy league on down to a community college. Most of the affirmative action students clogging up the “halls of higher learning” (ha!) have NO business being there. They don’t have the scores to gain fair admittance, they have no desire to actually learn anything, and they don’t have the necessary intellectual capacity to do so, if they did have the desire.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        You’re onto something, here. You are correct that the black students clogging up the halls of hiring learning probably have no business being there. One black co-worker in our office a few years ago was going back to school, and didn’t do her homework, at home; so she did it at work during work hours. One day she had to write an essay due the ame evening when she left work and was in a rush to get it done. She asked me to write it for her. I did. But I wrote the whole thing in Spanish, handed back to her and said, “there, take that to your class tonight after work.”

      He was a straight A student. His grades were great, as far as they go.

      But they are just crude measures of the ‘qua’ that good schools used to try to select for. But the crude measure is all we have because a commitment to egalitarianism means that we have to jettison discretion in all its forms. A casualty in the war on noticing.

Too many whites were in attendance and not enough people of color! I kid you not! He actually wrote this. It was the most I could do to compose a civil reply to this idiocy. Whether the author will approve my comment is another matter.

    All those famous schools…and Stony Brook. I had to laugh at that one, being a native Long Islander. Decades ago, SUNY Stony Brook flattered itself as the presumptive “Berkeley of the East”, and it was true that back in the 70s it was one of the better state schools. But something terrible and diverse happened to it somewhere along the way, and as of the early 2000s they were accepting students with an average SAT score of something like 1030 (out of 1600, on the older test).

    Each of my children applied to Stony Brook for the same reason that this Nigerian kid probably applied there – strictly as a backup plan. I suppose that not only did this kid get accepted by all of the ivies, he is looking at a free ride to any one of his choice. Stony Brook was thrown in the mix, I am sure, because of its notorious reputation for being especially diversity-friendly and relatively inexpensive.

    The median SAT score at Harvard is 2230 and at Yale it is 2255. So, with a score of 2270, this student is probably at the 60th percentile rank. In other words, he’s barely above average at those two schools. The main difference is that he will be getting a free ride and his peers will be forking over more than $50k per year for the privilege of attending class with him.

    I would like to share my experience as an Asian. I’ve seen too many Asian students achieving the same or even above the SAT score 2270 and ranking higher at their high school than this guy. But only few of them got fully accepted by 8 Ivy League college. Every month we have some Asians scoring SAT above 2270 and even some of them are not English native speakers. I don’t say this Nigerian guy is not smart but think about it, how many Africans does it take to produce a guy like him? Why are 99% of smart Africans we see today from Africa but not black Africans living in the USA for a long time?

          During my time in liberal blogging, I definitely saw people trying to finagle that one already.

          So far, they’ve proposed something of a ranking, with whites at the top and blacks at the bottom and everyone else in between with varying levels of “privilege” according to how far from black they are. East Asians are therefore just below whites, and the MOST privileged non-whites.

          This proposed ranking caused a bunch of yelling about “intersectionality” though, because it means that not all non-whites get the same slice of white-racism-and-oppression pie, and THAT won’t do.

          So there’s still some work they have to do on the theory before it goes live.

    Clearly the kid has been “acting white” and while he should justifiably be a role model among his “peers”…we know he’ll be second to Michael brown, Trayvon and Al Sharpton. The real role models of 99% of blacks today and who is lacking a rap sheet and a felony charge to be “authentic”.

  • barelyintrepid

    Haha, the libs are so proud of this guy they completely miss the irony of making this national news. Of the hundreds of thousands of blacks graduating each year ONE makes the cut. Its so rare they can list every one who’s done it in the last decade like its a Nobel prize.

    You’ll NEVER see this headline, “Korean immigrant scores perfect SAT and is accepted to Yale!”

    Phuk Yu overcame so much adversity!

    • Simonitz Levi Rothstein

      But honestly, libs or cons, how many whites break a record like this – all 8 Ivy League schools admitting him at once? Never heard of this before!

    • Michael Robert Ryan

      It kind of reminds me of how the Soviet’s internal propaganda would backfire on them sometimes. Like once, they were widely showing a movie about the great depression in America, trying to make the point that capitalism impoverishes workers. But the move showed lots of Okies fleeing westward with all their worldly possessions packed into in their cars and people got the message that even the poorest Americans had cars, while virtually no Soviets of that era did.

      The average American, on reading this piece isn’t going to think “Wow, this kid sure is smart, maybe black people aren’t as bad as I thought and we should import more of them,” he’s going to think, “Wow, what a joke our educational system has turned into where being black can get a person into any ivy league school in the country.”

      It is unbelievable how completely out-of-touch the journalistic community in this country is. These idiots probably won’t get it until after the breakup of the U.S. when they’re finally sitting in bulletproof glass booth in a courtroom somewhere.

    • BlueSonicStreak

      Reminds me of a graphic I saw floating around Tumblr, which read, in part, “Black excellence…[is] the radical idea that one good black person is worth more than thousands of good white people.”

      Same thing applies to Asians, and there you have it.

  • Snazzy Snook

    Yes and affirmative action had NOTHING to do with this ,right ?
    RIGHT !!

  • MekongDelta69

    And exactly how many White kids were accepted to EVERY college to which they applied, including ALL the Ivy’s?

    I’ll wait…

  • LastBastionOfHope

    As someone on LI, this just happened months ago to another black student. What this proves is that there are clear double standards. Smart (but not brilliant) blacks are accepted to all Ivy League schools while brilliant whites and asians are routinely rejected from all Ivy’s.

    What the media doesn’t tell you is that black kid last time who got in all the schools was only ranked 11th in his class! Yes, 11th. So he wasn’t even in the top 10 at his own high school. And he gets treated like the next Einstein. This is what decades and decades of coddling blacks does. What would really be fun is if someone could somehow take his applications with the exact qualifications but make him white/asian. I guarantee my entire family’s lives that he would not be accepted by all.

    If I were black, I’d be outraged. It’s akin to someone talking down to you or treating you like a helpless infant when you are really independent and mature. We are at the point of ridiculousness where mediocre to relatively smart blacks are being treated like the next Stephen Hawking while brilliant and genius whites and asians are being thrown away as disposable. ALL DUE TO SKIN COLOR! The very basic definition of racism.

    CHECK YOUR BLACK PRIVILEGE!

  • LastBastionOfHope

    As some of you may or may not remember, I posted a while back about a black girl I went to high school with. She was a smart girl when compared to other blacks, but when compared to whites she was just bright. Nothing special really…just a solid student.

    Well, she ended up at John’s Hopkins. Black privilege is booming!

    • Susan

      What liberals don’t seem to understand is that their affirmative action rules make all blacks’ accomplishments suspect.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    This guy could be President some day, so long as no one is allowed to see his college transcripts or Birth Certificate…

    • Susan

      No! No more black presidents!

      • Earl P. Holt III

        No more Bushes, either…!!!

  • LiberalismFailed

    His SAT score at least merits consideration to Ivy League, which is most often not the case where accepted blacks are concerned. I’m sure that a lot of white male candidates were turned down because they don’t have his “feel good story” despite having a higher SAT score.

  • Realist.44

    They’re all searching for their tokens.

  • Reynardine

    “He is now a straight A student, with an SAT score of 2270”

    Whoop de frickin’ doo. I had a score over 2300 and the ‘Leagues wouldn’t even touch me.

    • Simonitz Levi Rothstein

      Whoop de frickin’ doo. And, I had a score of 2399 and the Leagues would not even qualify me. See even I can make some random comment to deride Harold Ekeh simply because he happens to be black! Of course, like you I could “troll” on and claim anything I wanted to on Amren, make claims that I had 70 plus scientific patents, claim that I was some Nobel Prize winning science prodigy genius, except that the “Tribe” and das untermensch forcibly stole my future or make up any baloney, BUT, seriously what could you & I really prove? NOTHING! Well in this case, the verdict is out: Mr Ekeh has the actual evidence to back up his meritorious accolades!

      • Reynardine

        The verdict isn’t out, since the ‘Leagues still use race-based hiring preferences.

        He got in because he’s a negro. Had this happened without affirmative action or racial quotas, it would have been impressive.

        • Simonitz Levi Rothstein

          Well he has evidence to back his score, what evidence do you HAVE to prove your point? You can say all you want here (I’m sure there are plenty of WN suckers so filled with racial animus and hate that they’ll easily believe you!) but seriously, what can you prove? That’s right NOTHING! All your ilk will ever have is faux-bravado behind the computer screen. IN real life, its quite the opposite and you & I know both know, you hate it!

          Ok 2 predictions:

          1. Most posters would call me an SPLC mole, agent provocateur, or a member of the “Tribe” somehow messing with Amreners.

          2. The Mods will not post my comments and even go on to ban me as a “troll”

          I don’t care, I’m trending on the favorable side of destiny, which is something your ilk loathe! Good luck, oh never mind!

          • 李冠毅

            With all due respect, do you realize that you sound like a person who has difficulty controlling his emotions and hence cannot make rational arguments? Just read through your own comments.

            You’re Ashkenazi right? Ashkenazim are the smartest people in the world. You can do better than this. Next time you’re upset, instead of bursting out, try emptying your mind and take deep breaths for a few seconds. You should be able to think more clearly after that.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            He does, and it’s the exclamation mark abuse that’s producing that effect.

        • Susan

          My thoughts exactly. Because affirmative action rules the country rather than merit, and blacks are handed everything rather than having earned it, I never believe these kinds of stories.

  • David Ashton

    Token today, broken tomorrow.

  • InAFreeCountry

    Probably giving him a pass since he’s ESL.

  • Tony Murphy

    And they want a receipt!

  • Susan

    I believe this. He’s white & wouldn’t have been given grades like blacks are.

    • BulgAryan

      Perfect 2400 SAT score!

  • rebelcelt

    A black kid at my daughters school just got accepted at all the Ivy Leagues Schools. Must not be that rare.

  • Who Me?

    He got accepted because English is his second language. (And he is the right color.) What worries me is the current crop of so-called “reporters” who are White, apparently native English speaking Americans who write and speak the same way, with no excuse whatsoever. And THEY have jobs in the media! (I know it’s a bad example, but go to the MSNBC front page any day of the week and read 3 articles. Guaranteed you will find at least two glaring cases of this.)

  • chuckles99

    It is shocking that in 2015, so many people here display naked racism. Rather than accepting thaat they just were not selected, people seek to blame racism without any evidence. This student was exceptional by all measures. Instead of talking about the white students who didn’t get in, why not write about those that did? In case you haven’t noticed, the percentage of black students at Ivy League universities isn’t exceptionally high. And I write this as a lower income white student who was accepted.
