Proud of my Alma Mater

First check out this video: I am a Columbia University kid, from 1996-2000 I was doing my bit of student activism at the school and by the time I left I was worried about the activist energy there. But my boy Bryan Mercer and others have kept me abreast of rising tides of progressive willingness to act. Despite the fact that the ‘conservatives’ would never do something like this, I think the victory of the moment is sealed by the young man at the end who feels the young activists behaved like animals. I can go with that if the qualifier is "untamed" or "unbroken" – I think you would have to be a broken creature to sit by and let someone spout such racist and unconstitutional rhetoric and do nothing. Got a smile on my heart for this one!
