COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

.@JB_Cox: most would consider Penn a slightly lesser school than Harvard, and much lesser vis-a-vis admission to the "corridors of power".

@24AheadDotCom The "they'll be fine" comment is from experience: I was admitted to Harvard, went elsewhere (not Penn), still got to Yale Law

.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom What if they lost a scholarship to a DREAMer? Can't just get a "lesser scholarship" and be okay.

@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom Not quite what I said, esp. as I didn't accept the premises of the question (as I also stated).

@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom Give me an example of that happening.

From @JB_Cox
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom And DREAMers *are* "Americans" - just don't have papers yet. They're not going anywhere, so don't waste talents.

.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom DREAMers are "Americans?"Like the students at LiveOakHighSchool who are offended by the flag? http://t.co/VaZ20xGf8c

.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom If they are "Americans," why don't they want to speak our language? http://t.co/2haJakKcet

.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom I'm not certain how to find specific examples. Any time a #DACA recipient gets a scholarship, someone else doesn't.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom Or are you arguing that #DACA or #DREAMAct will increase scholarship availability to compensate?

@Glaivester @JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom And ultimately a poorer, less fortunate, born American citizen gets cut for a DREAMer from up the ladder.

From @JB_Cox
@ThenTheJudgment @Glaivester @24AheadDotCom That's not how it works. See supra re: supply not being fixed & how many colleges take everyone.
Justin Cox's avatar
From @JB_Cox
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom Not true. There are many DREAMer-specific scholarships. And DREAMers have inspired many to create new ones.

.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom English is the American language. It just doesn't have the papers yet.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom So you are tacitly admitting that by calling DREAMers "Americans" you are endorsing a linguistically disunited US.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom So you deny DREAMers apply for generally available scholarships?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom Or have they inspired any scholarships that non-DREAMers are eligible for?

.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom Are you denying that there was fear at Live Oak that displaying an American flag would enrage Latino students?

.@JB_Cox @24AheadDotCom I'm not arguing legal decision, I'm wondering why American students would be offended by American flag.

@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom I speak Spanish. That mean I'm guilty of creating linguistic balkinatization?

@ThenTheJudgment I'm sorry, but I can't understand things for you. Suffice it to say things aren't as you assume @Glaivester @24AheadDotCom

@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom Some do. But they're ineligible for a ton (probably most).
