A student who recently got accepted to the very prestigious Yale School of Medicine was thrilled by the new and exciting path their life was taking, especially after all of the hard work it takes to get into school like this, and decided to do what just about everyone does these days when something new pops into their lives:
They posted it on Facebook.
Rather than getting immediately surrounded by congratulations, another individual decided this would be an opportune time to remind the person that it wasn’t hard work that got them into the school but their “white privilege.”
This initiated a back and forth between the student and the obviously envious social justice warrior that has now made it’s rounds across the Internet.

A student accepted to Yale University who posted her big news on Facebook wasn’t congratulated — but shamed, for what one critic called her “white privilege.”
In a Facebook post cited by the Daily Mail, an unnamed user wrote about her acceptance into the Yale School of Medicine. It wasn’t long before another user, named “Melissa,” said Yale accepted the future student because of her “white privilege.”
“Good job, might I add a shout out to your white privilege for you,” Melissa wrote.
A back-and-forth ensued on Facebook, with Melissa claiming that the future Yale student was accepted because she comes “from a white privileged background. You make it seem like you did all this yourself, but I’m just keeping things real by giving a nod to your privilege.”
But the student who got into the Ivy League school explained that she grew up in foster care after her alcoholic parents gave her up when she was 5 years old. She continued: “I had to take care of my brother for 2 years until we got adopted, and then we were both abused by that family and had to go back into the orphanage for another 2 years.”
“I spent long nights studying, and working part time in high school just to support myself and brother. I was lucky enough to have good grades to get into a decent undergrad,” the student wrote, according to the Daily Mail. She detailed the “8 years” she spent working hard to get accepted into college.
“I understand the concept of privilege but it sounds more like you are trying to condescend me rather than be helpful,” she continued. Melissa concluded the conversation with: “Umm okay sweetie, you claim to understand privilege but you can’t even self critique [sic] buh bye.”
What rude and utterly disgusting behavior! All this individual had to do was either say nothing at all, or just simply say congrats and move on.
But nope. They wanted to show all of their Facebook friends how “woke” they are, how edgy and how they are on top of the current trends in what has become the “outrage and activism” industry.
This is obviously someone who was jealous, for whatever reason, and just wanted to bust this student’s chops. If this person really wanted to bring to light the issue they are passionate about, they might want to rethink the approach.
Being a nasty individual doesn’t win hearts, souls, or minds to the cause. It just makes you look like a jerk and the cause like it’s phony. Although in the case of white privilege, it is phony, so, yeah, there’s that.
I’ll be glad the day comes when SJWs retire and the rest of the human race is finally allowed to go back to being normal without all the screechy voiced fake outrage.
