CONGRATS.

Akintunde Ahmad Has A 5.0 GPA, 2100 SAT Score & Acceptance To Multiple Ivies

17-year-old student at Oakland Tech in Oakland, Calif., who achieved a 5.0 GPA and 2,100 on the SAT, has been accepted to top colleges and numerous Ivy League Universities: Brown, Chapman, Cal Poly, Cal State East Bay, Columbia, Howard, Northwestern, UCLA, USC and Yale Uni where he has received a baseball scholarship. Ahmad is leaving some people in shock at his accomplishments Ahmad describes himself as a “street dude” while admitting that his physique can be intimidating to people who are judgmental. Even his peers have underestimated him until he pulls out his cellphone to present them with images of his grades and test scores to provide proof.Ahmad has decided to narrow his choices to two schools Yale and Brown with plans of majoring in Pre-med or Pre-law.    

Well all I can say is I am proud of him and all other black young men doing well in school. I hope to hear more of him and others

This is what’s wrong with our society. So what if he’s black? What matters is that he accomplished something fucking extravagant. He deserves recognition for what he did, not recognition for what he did because of his skin pigmentation. 

I know plenty of very successful, talented men of color, but that does not make them any different than some white dude who did the same thing.

We really need to refocus as a society and see accomplishment for what it truly is: a human’s ability to succeed.
