Black girl magic strikes again, and this time our shining star is a New Jersey high school student who just did a clean sweep of her college applications, racking up acceptances from all eight Ivy League schools as well as Stanford, just for good measure.
Is your activism performative or substantive? One New Jersey teen knew exactly how to show his answer to that question when filling out his application to Stanford University. Asked “What matters to you, and why?” the teen could think of only one thing: #BlackLivesMatter.
Brock Turner, the former Stanford student who received a slap on the wrist after being convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman, is scheduled to be released from jail Friday, after serving only half of his meager six-month sentence, Business Insider reports.
By now we are all familiar with the outrage sweeping the nation since a Santa Clara County, Calif., judge sentenced Stanford swimmer Brock Turner to six months in county jail after the 20-year-old was convicted of raping an unconscious and intoxicated woman in 2015.
