      Harvard student submits rao album as his senior thesis. Will graduate with honours. #1


      BOSTON (AP) -- While other Harvard University students were writing papers for their senior theses, Obasi Shaw was busy rapping his.

      Shaw is the first student in Harvard's history to submit a rap album as a senior thesis in the English Department, the university said. The album, called "Liminal Minds," has earned the equivalent of an A-minus grade, good enough to guarantee that Shaw will graduate with honors next week.

      Count Shaw among those most surprised by the success. "I never thought it would be accepted by Harvard," said Shaw, a 20-year-old from Stone Mountain, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. "I didn't think they would respect rap as an art form enough for me to do it."

      Shaw describes the 10-track album as a dark and moody take on what it means to be black in America. Each song is told from a different character's perspective, an idea inspired by Geoffrey Chaucer's 14th-century classic "The Canterbury Tales." Shaw, who's black, also draws on the works of writer James Baldwin while tackling topics ranging from police violence to slavery.

      Other schools are showing interest in the 'art form.'

      "Rap and hip-hop have drawn growing interest from academia in recent years. Harvard established a fellowship for scholars of hip-hop in 2013, and other schools including the University of Arizona have started to offer minors in hip-hop studies."

      'Scholars of hip hop'. :rofl:

      I don't either, but it depends on the quality of his work and everything else. I can't gauge that from an article. If there's a problem here, it's that we're talking Harvard, which should have rigorous academic standards for degrees.

    • At Harvard, an A- is the functional equivalent of a D elsewhere. A majority of kids get the straight A, so there must be something fucked up about his project to warrant the A-.

    • Somehow it seems fitting considering the probability the 'student' is even there as an affirmative action parasite. Do you think for a minute that this monkey actually paid tuition like normal students?

      Yep. Notice Schlomo didn'nt build his own Ivy League, but instead pushed, shoved, and elbowed his way into the well established schools and is now using "of colors" to consolidate their control. Now we have this.

      How many kids are allowed to graduate from yeshivas by preparing "rap" theses?

      Does that change the fact that Jews have hijacked THE Ivy League? Why are they still attending Harvard when they have their own Ivy League school? Is it a case of what belongs to the Jews belongs to the Jews, and what doesn't belong to the Jews still belongs to the Jews?

      What if White Christians hijacked Brandeis and used "holistic" admissions/diversity to systematically push Jews out of the school? What if it had mandatory a "Jewish Privilege" class while Jews were being removed from the school?

      Gets affirmative action slot and a tax paid education at harvard and whines about 'being black in murica'. This nigger has never experienced slavery. Neither have his parents or grandparents or great grandparents. Get off of it nigger. Life isnt easy for anyone. You think you have a monopoly on hardship. You think your culture is the only one that has ever been fucked over by others? Niggers have had it easy comlared to what some other cultures have gone through. Time to quit whining and grow up

      If a white American kid went to Oxford, do you think he could submit a polka album and get his degree? Of course not!
