In the beginning, when my face was plastered all over television programs and the interweb, I did what any logical person would do; I went into hiding, a la Koreanne Frank. The first thoughts that ran through my mind, in order of importance, were 1.) I’m going to go to jail, 2.) How do I get out of this one?, and 3.) Where did the spatula go that I need to eat this entire bowl of cake batter?
As time went on, my narcissism poked its huge dick out, and I tried to figure out how I could spin this retarded situation to my advantage (turns out it wasn’t that hard). But I don’t know if I would consider this a prime business model. However, it seems like Harvard Law student, Stephanie Grace, thinks otherwise.
Stephanie is a third year law student attending one of the most prestigious law schools in the country, so you would think she wasn’t a complete retard, right? Well, you’re wrong. Ms. Grace has been in the media spotlight for the past few days, because Ms. Grace is a raging bigot who clearly doesn’t understand the way the internet works; or how your colleagues will happily shove a knife into your spine, if given the opportunity.
S.G. attended a dinner with two others, and the conversation lead to affirmative action and those who are generally more stupid than you, as it almost always does. Unsurprisingly, black people came up. It’s uncertain as to what Stephanie actually said, but I’m sure it was something like, “Boy, do they love their cornbread.” After the dinner came to an end, she went home and sent out an email of clarification, that only clarified her incessant yammering, and propagated her deranged ideology that black people are genetically predispositioned to be retarded. Okay, I know there were some larger words in that last sentence, so for my readers of colour, she basically said y’all are dumb-like, and you’s born like that.
However misguided her opinions may be, does she deserve the onlsaught of media attention she has garnered? Some people were concerned when her name was released, stating that the media is ruining a young woman’s promising career, whereas others had the right idea in saying that bitch was getting what she deserved. How Stephanie didn’t realize that you JUST DON’T DO SHIT LIKE THIS, is beyond me. Sure, she was standing up for what she believed (past tense, she apologized!), and by living in America has the right to say whatever she wants. Just because she feels a certain way doesn’t necessarily mean that–oh wait, she wanted to work in law, which is supposed to be fair and balanced, yes?
I deserved all of the shit that I got, and continue to get (Gook comments, anyone?), and was fortunate enough to find a way to make money off of it; but this girl was trying to be a lawyer, and was well on her way to having a legitimate career. It’s obvious that she assumed her friends were closer to her than they actually were, and it’s unfortunate that she was shoved into the limelight in the way that she was, but all of that still doesn’t negate the fact that she’s a crazy racist.
Stephanie is still set to have clerkship bestowed upon her, though many are trying to cockblock her on that one, but in case that doesn’t work out, I’m sure we could find a place for her here at Animal.
