    @brantly That doesn't change anything for me, I already figured that was the case. I (unlike the left) don't get "triggered" by other people's beliefs. If I was to go to Cornell I'd just keep my head down, work hard, and try to make it into IB. I'm not interested in engaging with people who are gonna end up working at Starbucks.

    Bahahaha!! Good one! Sorry to hear that you've been discriminated and treated poorly because of your beliefs ☹️ It's sad that a minority is called a racist and bigot because you have different viewpoints...really sad.
    I also come from a poor immigrant but conservative America-loving family. My parents sacrificed everything to give their kids the opportunity to grow up in wonderful country and go to college, so I understand where you're coming from. Wishing you all the best and I'm sure you'll do well wherever you go.

    Two things:
    1. You think only politically conservative people get professional jobs? Why would you think that? Plenty of rich people are liberal (see: Warren Buffet, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Tom Steyer).
    2. Anyway, why wouldn't you talk to someone who works at Starbucks? My mom always said I should judge a date by how he treats the server, the doorman, and the janitor.
