BOSTON (AP) — A Parkland school shooting survivor says Harvard University revoked his acceptance over racist comments he made in a shared Google Doc and in text messages about two years ago.

Kyle Kashuv says the Ivy League school asked him in May to explain the comments he made months before the February 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. He apologized for his private comments that had surfaced online. He says he told Harvard officials the comments were “idiotic and hurtful” but don’t represent who he is now.

 

In a June 3 letter that Kashuv shared online Monday, Harvard said it had rescinded his admission because of his comments.

A spokeswoman says the school does not comment on admissions decisions.

Kashuv has advocated for gun rights since a former Parkland student killed 17 people.

    in a society in which forgiveness is possible or mistakes brand you as irredeemable. xxxxxxx That devil isn’t redeemable. Those texts surfaced, he didn’t repent. He tried to defend by saying they are “private” texts. He said he was really good at saying the n word. Folks that’s just one text. Imagine his verbal and other written communication. Naw he is a klansman in the making. He is a product of his parents. That’s his everyday persona.

  2. Oops, his on-line RACIST RANTS got his DUMB WHITE azz in trouble!!!!!
    Not going to no Ivy League college now, boy!!!!!!!!!!!
