If this doesn’t show how stupid and useless college is these days than I don’t know what does. A Black Harvard student is submitting a rap album as his senior thesis. The premise of the rap album is his take on what it is like to be Black in America.
This is not creative. Rap also stands for retards attempting poetry. He should be given an F.
While other Harvard University students were writing papers for their senior theses, Obasi Shaw was busy rapping his.
Shaw is the first student in Harvard’s history to submit a rap album as a senior thesis in the English Department, the university said. The album, called “Liminal Minds,” has earned the equivalent of an A-minus grade, good enough to guarantee that Shaw will graduate with honors next week.
Count Shaw among those most surprised by the success.
“I never thought it would be accepted by Harvard,” said Shaw, a 20-year-old from Stone Mountain, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. “I didn’t think they would respect rap as an art form enough for me to do it.”
Shaw describes the 10-track album as a dark and moody take on what it means to be black in America. Each song is told from a different character’s perspective, an idea inspired by Geoffrey Chaucer’s 14th-century classic “The Canterbury Tales.” Shaw, who’s black, also draws on the works of writer James Baldwin while tackling topics ranging from police violence to slavery.
Shaw’s thesis adviser, Harvard English lecturer Josh Bell, said Shaw is a “serious artist and he’s an amazing guy.”
Of course if the professor were to give this Negro a failing grade he would be called a racist and lose his job.
Whites should boycott these institutions in mass. If I were getting ready to graduate high school in today’s environment I would immediately learn a trade or get information technology certifications. Learning a skill that is actually in demand is far more valuable than any bull shit you’ll learn at these horrible places.
