Friday Feedback: I believe that it’s not the universities that are failing us. The failures are on the part of the individuals that see UCSD, or any university, as a soapbox for these racist and hateful viewpoints. Some small minority of students have accepted admission to UCSD and have wasted an opportunity for personal growth and enlightenment. Clearly these spots could have gone to more deserving people.
