Sheikh-Hassan: Dangerous Myths of Exceptionalism

(11/13/12 4:00am)

This column is meant to address the concerns of "IndependentVoice" an anonymous commenter on The Dartmouth's article covering the bias incident last week who requested that someone discuss why this election has caused the phrase "f-ck white people" to trend on Twitter ("Incident Team reacts to bigoted vandalism," Nov. 9). I wanted to inform this commenter that "f-ck," "stupid," "socialist," "n-gger" and "RIP America" were also recently trending during this election cycle. In fact, these phrases were so popular that many different sites have compiled them and have even geo-mapped their distribution across the country. Unsurprisingly, the greatest concentration of racist tweets were from the South and Midwest. But also unsurprisingly, a large number also came from places smattered across the Northeast and California. What does this prove beyond the fact that there are racists everywhere? Only that contrary to popular belief, there are racists here, too.

Parsons the New School for Design announced that it will reopen its Paris program in the fall of 2013, The New York Times reported. In 2010, the French program changed its name to the Paris College of Art after its relationship with the New York campus ended. The new campus, which will be located on Rue Saint-Roch and called the Parsons Paris School of Art and Design, will teach between 300 and 500 students. The program plans to offer degrees in art, fashion, design and business, and students who start at the Paris campus will have the option of transferring to the New York, Shanghai or Mumbai campuses. Executive Dean of Parsons Joel Towers said that students from across Europe will be allowed to enroll in short-term professional development and online courses, for which they could receive Parsons credit, according to The Times.

‘Good Kid, M.A.A.D City' tells story of Compton, Calif.

(11/13/12 4:00am)

A good friend of mine recommended that I listen to American hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar, who he said reminded him of Frank Ocean, "but better." Lamar's major label debut album "Good Kid, M.A.A.D City," which was released on Oct. 23, displays some similarities to Ocean's summer release "Channel Orange" with its strong focus on storytelling, but it's also extremely innovative in its nostalgic style. Lamar brings listeners into his world: Compton, Calif.

Saturday was the last time I strapped on my pads, buckled my chinstrap and laced up my cleats for the Big Green. Yes, we have one final game at Princeton University this week, but I will most likely be in sweats, as I'm not usually active for road games due to the NCAA player limit.
