They were invited to Oakland by Father Michael King, pastor of Saint Mary's Church to establish a school for girls and to provide means to train future teachers. The original site of the convent was on the shores of Lake Merritt. By the convent began to offer classes at a post-secondary level and was renamed the College of the Holy Names. Soon afterward inthe original site was purchased by Henry J.
Actors Brooke Shields and Dean Cain used their senior papers to write about the film industry. Actor David Duchovny wrote about Samuel Beckett.
Future politician Bill Bradley wrote about Harry Truman. Ralph Nader explored Lebanese agriculture. But few senior theses have attracted as much attention as Michelle Obama's paper, "Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community.
Their interest was heightened by Princeton's initial refusal to make the thesis publicly available. Plenty of bloggers are posting their takes on the academic musings of a potential future first lady: From Will Offensicht, blogging at Scragged: Obama correctly noticed that she was judged by the color of her skin rather than by the content of her character.
She was black first and a student second. This is because the Princeton admissions office insisted on admitting students based on the color of their skin rather than on the content of their qualifications. As long as our society insists on affirmative action programs which give blacks jobs and college positions beyond their qualifications, as long as society insists on treating people based on the color of their skins, it should be no surprise that people treat people based on the color of their skins.
We've pointed out that Mr. Obama's success in attracting white voters has shown that since institutional racism is over, affirmative action is no longer needed. Obama has convinced enough white voters that he'd be President of all Americans rather than just a black president that he's close to winning the Democratic nomination.
It's time to end the harm done to students like the future Mrs. Obama and end racial preferences. The way to end racism is to end racism, not to practice it at all levels of government, business, and society at large.
From Mark Gardner, blogging at WhackyNation: No wonder Princeton University was trying to hide Michelle Obama's senior thesis. The Politico has gotten ahold of it, and, wow!
What an angry woman who has a serious problem with blacks and whites living together in an integrated society. Barack Obama and the Democrats should face reality.
This senior paper dooms any hope of the Obama couple being elected to the White House. From Steve Sailer's iSteve Blog: So far, I've read the Dedication and the first couple of pages of the Introduction, and that's plenty. You've got to be impressed with how ruthless Senator Obama is -- he'll humiliate his poor wife by releasing her semi-literate college graduation maunderings just so he can say, "Let's move on.
Okay, it's schoolgirlish in style, especially compared to her husband's sonorous mature prose, but she was only 21 when she wrote it. The important thing, though, is that the artlessness of her writing allows the meaning to shine through more obviously than in Dreams From My Father -- but it's the same Story of Race and Inheritance.
And she sure has some self-esteem issues, doesn't she? I think that's part of her appeal to the Oprah audience: Oprah's fans can identify with Mrs. People were always telling them that they weren't smart enough either; and, yet, here they are, sitting around watching daytime TV.
From John Rosenberg, blogging at Discriminations: Obama's experience at Princeton was not unique. In the era of affirmative action it was in fact quite common for black students to feel blacker after they got to college than they had before. And if she learned there to identify herself as a "third world student," perhaps it becomes less surprising that she found something to be proud of in the decidedly first world United States only quite recently.Submit Your Rutgers Thesis or Dissertation (RUetd) Collections.
