Muslim teenager repeats #Blacklivesmatter 100 times on Stanford application and is accepted

Ziad Ahmed said it was 'refreshing to see that they view my unapologetic activism as an asset rather than a liability'

 

When Ziad Ahmed was asked on his Stanford University application “What matters to you, and why?”, his answer was clear.

He wrote: “#BlackLivesMatter”, repeating the hashtag exactly 100 times to highlight the excessive use of police force which disproportionately kills black men and women.

The practising Muslim senior high school student in New Jersey has since been accepted to the prestigious University.

“Everyone who received your application was inspired by your passion, determination, accomplishments, and heart,” the acceptance letter read.

It added: “You are, quite simply, a fantastic match with Stanford. You will bring something original and extraordinary to our campus – a place where you can learn, grow, and thrive.”

The Bangladeshi-American has already attended the White House Iftar dinner, a religious observance of Ramadan, and in 2016 he interned for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

"To me, to be Muslim is to be a BLM ally, and I honestly can't imagine it being any other way for me," Mr Ahmed said.

"Furthermore, it's critical to realise that one-fourth to one-third of the Muslim community in America are black... and to separate justice for Muslims from justices for the black community is to erase the realities of the plurality of our community."

He has also been accepted to Yale University and Princeton University, and must decide which school to attend by 1 May.

It is time white rightwingers, create new institutions of higher learning, as all existing places of higher learning, have been deliberately ruined, and turned into ghetto's.
