“when I came to college, all I found was more workhorses who are doing what their parents want.”
this is a sentiment widely shared by AM and his friends, and I have such a problem with it. is this not a satirically privileged statement to make? first: how can anyone make that judgement on another individual? second: how can anyone criticize another for it being true? we come from different backgrounds, different family dynamics, and just because your privileged white self came from an intellectual environment with secure parents does not mean others did. in effect, what JC is asking for is a collection of all the richest, most privileged children of world intellectuals. and thank god —- is not that.
