A Christmas Carol from Tufts University

I found this little ditty posted on Nat Turner's Revenge.

This update of "O Come O Ye Faithful" was written by some supposedly smart Tufts University college students in their conservative rag called The Primary Source. Of course, the little twits have already removed the offensive "carol", but some of the comments written by the papers' readers are just as eye-opening and revealing.
O Come All Ye Black Folk
Boisterous yet desirable
O come ye, O come ye to our university
Come and we will admit you
Born into oppression
O come let us accept them
O come let us accept them
O come let us accept them


Fifty-two black freshmen
O sing gospel choirs
We will accept your children
No matter what your grades are F's, D's, or C's
Give them privileged status
We will welcome all
O come let us accept them
O come let us accept them
O come let us accept them


Fifty-two black freshmen
All come!
Blacks we need you
Born into the ghetto
O Jesus we need you now to fill our racial quotas
Descendants of Africa with brown skin arriving
O come let us accept them
O come let us accept them
O come let us accept them


Fifty-two black freshmen

plez sez: I would be too ashamed to admit that a child of mine could be so filled with racism and hate to write such a thing. What's sadder still, is that this wasn't the only "carol" that they came up with... all of them are equally offensive and lacking in creativity.

I also feel sorry for Tufts University, as I'm sure they will have a difficult time next fall trying to find even 5 Black students who will want to enroll in a university that harbors students with such a racist and crazy view of Black people.

WOW! This kind of stuff really puts me in the Christmas Spirit!

This is why our daughters are free to go to whatever college they choose...but our money is going to Spelman! :)

You know, I was considering writing a response using "O Tannenbaum (or Oh Christmas Tree)", but I decided that it was too vulgar and out of line for Christmas, so...I opted to listen to the simple message of Alexander O'Neal: "Remember Why (It's Christmas)"

This type of crap, though, makes me want to enroll at Tufts, pass every class, graduate with honors, and send a giant f--- you to those morons, and never send one donation back when I'm the CEO of a corporation. That's true revenge.
