#1 Ivy League colleges are beclowning themselves now with out of control Wokeness and absurd levels of affirmative action preference for "under-represented minorities" that now include queers and chicks-with-dicks. Talented white and Asian males are increasingly saying F-you and dropping out of these madhouses in favor of excellent state flagship public schools.

This trend will destroy the reputation of Harvard Yale Princeton etc. Employers will come to see these as BS finishing schools for virtue-signalers whose distinctive skills are verbal fluency and a knack for figuring out how to tell liberal elites what they want to hear: Woke Soetoros.

Prediction: by 2030, at least one of Harvard, Yale, and Princeton will no longer be ranked among the world's top 25 universities.

#2 The people who do the rankings are just as woke, or maybe even woker. It's the schools that resist this that will be downgraded.

#3 If you include the alphabet people, URMs ("under-represented minorities") now make up about 35% of those who attend Harv-Yale-Pton. Recruited athletes, children of big donors, other alumni and staff, and foreign students make up another 40%. Most of the remainder are drawn from fewer than a dozen "feeder" elite prep schools.

Which means that the odds that one of these ridiculous Woke Finishing School classes will produce another Richard Feynman or E.O. Wilson or James Watson or John Updike, George Kennan, Henry Kissinger, TS Eliot et al. are effectively zero.

#4 As a Yale graduate, I find this whole thing enormously amusing.

I couldn't read fiction book with this plot because no publisher would find it realistic enough. So I rely on real life to provide me with some very amusing entertainment. Like this.

#5 Meanwhile, all those decades of women's athletic records and effort are meaningless.

#6 Oppressed by crass Cassiopeia,
Identical twins pulled a Lia:
"Let's claim conjoined wits
And swap negative splits."
"What a scathingly schizo idea!"
