Sidwell Foes Friends School in Washington D.C. is nominally a Quaker institution, but life remains full of interest there.

You know how each spring the media is full of reports of some high school student who was accepted into all eight Ivy League colleges, and then it usually turns out to be some Nigerian girl?

So even with that kind of affirmative action mojo, a girl at Sidwell named Dayo Adetu still managed to go 0 for 13 in applying to college, not even getting into Spelman HBCU. So she and and her Leopard Parents are suing Sidwell Friends for allegedly conspiring against her after a long list of discrimination lawsuits the parents filed involving her and her older sister. They’ll take their latest case to the Supreme Court!

Anyway, if you want to learn far more than you care to know about grading disputes in Ms. Kozibrodzka’s Math II class at Sidwell, here is their latest legal filing [link fixed].

Anyway, what’s better as the Nigerian equivalent of Asian Tiger Parents? Panther Parents or Leopard Parents?

    After avoiding mainstream Hollywood movies like the plague for over half a decade, I saw two movies in the theater this week.

    On Thursday, I went with my cousin and her kids to see The Secret Life of Pets 2. Besides us, there were maybe ten people in the theater.

    Her kids are mulatto, so you can imagine how well they behaved. Honestly, I was a little embarrassed, mainly because I wondered if people would assume I was a beta schlump who ended up settling for a single mom with a black baby-daddy. I kept emphasizing (loudly) that I was hanging out with my *relatives*.

    My cousin’s black husband is no smarter than the average African-American, but he has an admirable work ethic. They’ve been together for ten years. And he’s not alpha in the least - my cousin and my aunt walk all over him. He works for the county and pulls in plenty of overtime.

    Interestingly, the seven-year-old boy responded to me far more than his mother. I didn’t even raise my voice - I just said, emphatically, “T., don’t touch that! Come here!” ... and he obeyed. But then two seconds later he was wandering off again with his five-year-old sister. Those kids are in desperate need of discipline and structure and they’re not getting any of it.

    Today I saw Ma. Besides me, there were no more than six people in the theater.

    Ma was hardly a masterpiece, just a decent little horror movie. Octavia Spencer did a pretty good job portraying a lonely miserable (black) frump who still resented being mistreated by the (white) popular kids in high school. She was like a fat old black version of Carrie without telekinetic powers.
  2. Student from elite DC prep school attended by Sasha and Malia Obama sues $40,000-a-year institution and takes case to Supreme Court after she failed to receive one unconditional acceptance from 13 top colleges she applied to
    Dayo Adetu attended Sidwell Friends School from 2000 to 2014 and sued them in her junior year for ‘biased, improper scoring’
    Adetu’s parents Titilayo and Nike Adetu got $50,000 in a 2013 settlement after they claimed staff ‘steadfastly refused’ to make accommodations for athletics
    Sidwell agreed to recalculate certain grades and vowed not retaliate
    Adetus claim Sidwell breached Office of Human Rights’ settlement agreement
    Lawsuit notes Sidwell touts 100% college matriculation rate for its graduates
    But Adetu didn’t get into colleges due to scores, ranking and recommendations
    Sidwell called claims ‘generalized gripes founded on speculation’ and said it was entitled to academic deference
    Appeals court rejected claim in January because it failed to show ‘tangible harm’
    Thursday Supreme Court considered hearing the case

    From the Daily Mail article:

    ‘Despite the fact that Sidwell touts a 100% college matriculation rate for its graduating high school seniors, Dayo did not receive unconditional acceptance to any of the thirteen (13) universities to which she applied and desired admission,’ Richard Baker, the Adetus' lawyer says in the April Supreme Court documents.

    Lawsuit evidence dates back to 2012 and mentions an incident in December that year where then-Headmaster, Thomas Farquhar, is alleged to have said  'all of the teachers want the Adetus gone, gone, gone from the School,' and that 'non-retaliation [against Dayo] is now off the table'. 

    The previous year, Dayo's older sister Lola had filed a discrimination complaint against Sidwell with the DC Office of Human Rights.  

    Baker notes that Dayo 'proved to be a gifted mathematician, as well as a nationally recognized merit scholar and student-athlete' plus entertained track coaches from Brown, Princeton and Colombia.

    Adetu ultimately attended the University of Pennsylvania in 2015 after applying to colleges again, according to the complaint, and indicated on social media that she graduated last month.

  11. There was a real Quaker network in the NAIS even into the 90s, and for all I know it still exists. It’s not everyday you run into a Quaker, but they are fairly common in the faculties of elite secular schools.

    One of my former teachers got a Job at Sidwell Friends around 1990. She was a radically liberal Jewish single mother whose son had behavioral problems, probably because of her. This woman was so anti-Christian that even my progressive school made her apologize to a family for her in-class denunciations of Christians.

    After one of her classes, one of my classmates, a Jewish girl possibly incited by her, said “what’s this?” then tore a Catholic medallion I got from my working-class grandparents right off my neck, and laughed in my face. I was too embarrassed to do anything about it. After all, as a 14yo boy, what are you supposed to do when one of the popular rich girls humiliates you?

    And Sidwell Friends recruited this woman. That’s all I have to know about that school.

    Jews are very grabby.

    It's how I know someone who says they aren't Jewish has Jewish heritage.

    I've had Jews grab my laptop, walk into my house and just sit down and start playing the piano (that sounds not so bad...but it was very rude...as I did not invite them into the house), a rabbi grabbed my cell phone right out of my hand

    That's a key indication of Jewish heritage

    My father-in-law does it, and I told my husband that I was going to hide all of my valuables every time they came. My husband said nothing because he knows its true. Don't worry, we are Catholic...strongly, strongly Catholic.

    I actually keep a fake home screen on my laptop at all times just in case anyone grabs it so they won't find out I read iSteve...it's that bad....

    Dozens of Memphis police injured after fatal shooting sparks violent clashes

    The crowd launched bricks and rocks at Memphis police and multiple police vehicles were damaged; the windows of a local fire station were also smashed.

    The violent clashes occurred in response to the reported death by shooting of a felony suspect, who was killed in a botched raid by US Marshals in North Memphis.

    According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, agents attempted to arrest the suspect –who reportedly had multiple felony warrants–– but the man entered a car and began ramming police vehicles indiscriminately before exiting with a weapon.

    That was his last move.

    The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) said it is “closely monitoring” the situation.

    The black elite used to educate their young quite well at such schools. Now they’re mismatched into the Ivies to have their heads filled with nonsense like the Roman Empire used to take the most promising scions of the Germanic tribes to Rome to educate (sic) them before returning them to wreak havoc among the tribes.

    The blatant discrimination by the Ivies against regular American white males could be a blessing in disguise.

    Spelman only has a 16 percent yield, so the Admitted Student Profile is higher than the enrolled student profile.

    Spelman has always been a solid school. The reason the college is well-run today and not descending into chaos like Howard University is because the Rockefeller family is quietly running the college behind the scenes. Spelman College is named after John D. Rockefeller's wife, Laura Spelman.

    Well, if there is indeed already a "long list" of suits, and here they've gone as far as to file this loopy appeal. I've not yet read any if the filings or done any other research, but let's assume each other lawsuit was at least taken to trial.

    Good lawyers in Washington (and these idiots would, I presume, not skimp) will bill at least $600.00 per hour. The hours billed could vary wildly; there are too many variables to speculate: How needy were the parents? (Every e-mail and phone call asking about progress on Princess' case is more Italian marble for the lawyer's new kitchen....) How much discovery was undertaken? Did the other side take the decision to be amicable and cooperative since the cases were so preposterous on their faces and doomed, letting these plaintiffs make fools of themselves while the defendant's saved money? Or did the defendant's take the decision to be bastards right back because of the outrageousness of the allegations and the need to look concerned and indignant about race to appease GloboHomo?

    Let me look over the filings later to see how much it all blew up in earlier cases and I'll offer a guess. I have to go make money myself just now.

    I will say that just for filing this latest appeal it probably cost about $10,000.00 if a flat fee was intelligently negotiated with a fair firm. If they were gullible or incautious and if they hired some ... wait; never mind. I see their lawyer's address is a @aol.com domain.

    You know what? I've a conjecture that avoids your question, if you'll pardon me: They are either having their deluded friend of thr family who went to Howard University's School of Law & Refrigerator Repair do all this mess, or some Lionel Hutz type?

    Nope, wrong again; he's pretty flyfor a black guy.

    Yeah, I have to get popcorn and get reading, but no time now.

    TL;DR:

    $10,000.00 for this appeal
    ~$100,000.00? altogether so far but can't really say until I review more details; biggest variable: suspicion lawyer is subsidising work or heavily discounting rates because old college buddy of plaintiff, or wants publicity for perceived virtue signalling, or both....

    "Ms. Kozibrodzka?"

    If she is a real Russian, and anything like the ones I know, she is not the warm and fuzzy type, esp. with spoiled and entitled kids.

    That could be your problem right there.
  20. I scanned the 4/23/19 Writ, but didn’t make the effort to locate the earlier filings (perhaps risking a lawsuit, I dunno). A couple of items were interesting.

    Page 2: “During the course of her matriculation, and until her graduation from Sidwell on June 6, 2014, Dayo proved to be a gifted mathematician [footnote 2], as well as a nationally recognized merit scholar and student-athlete.”

    Footnote 2: “In the 10th grade, Dayo was the only Black girl in the School’s accelerated mathematics course, Math II.”

    As Steve alludes, it was on this basis that a thousand math-grade-rounding-error ships were launched.

    The nationally recognized merit scholar phrase catches the eye, given DC’s PSAT cutoff score for National Merit Semifinalist status. DC sits at the top, tied with CA, MA, MD, and NJ. Ms. Dayo being a Semifinalist isn’t what’s being discussed. We learn on Page 5 that Ms. Dayo “had been recognized nationally as a Math Scholar” during her freshman or sophomore year. So, something else.

    There’s also a dog that doesn’t bark in the epic Ms. Kozibrodzka/Mr. Markey/Mr. Heiges Math Grading/Placement Struggle Session. Against her teacher’s advice, Ms. Dayo enrolled in BC Calculus (the harder one). Thus, she should have taken that AP exam (many schools mandate it). Her AP grade goes unmentioned.

    ic1000, i commend your use of primary sources--and patience--to try and suss out the strory.

    But to me, i figured i had a good take on it--95% confidence--just from
    -- black kid
    -- contention over grades with math teacher
    -- parents suing Sidwell
    -- black kid not getting into any of 13 (ivy-ish) schools.

    ==> the parents *think* their precious child is a little black genius, but the kid isn't actually very smart and has mediocre tests scores.

    Math is the tell. Even at a PC joint like Sidwell, math is where you won't get the black pass. The teacher will grade your paper--only 8 of 12 problems right, some partial credit for this and that ... 83.

    By her parents Nigerian (?) standard, she may have seemed bright, and they continually pushed her forward. But at Sidwell, in the smarties math class, she isn't competing against Obidigbo but against actually smart kids named Cohen and Williams and Lee.

    Ivy admissions are incredibly open to blacks, essentially because Harvard and other elite schools have ridiculously large quotas for blacks at near their population representation, which is a full order of magnitude greater than what they'd get via their test scores. This filters across the elite schools and means any actually smart black has entre to elite schools. But this girl didn't make it. (At least at first.) And the math squabble is a giant tell as to why. Just not that bright.

    ~~~

    BTW, this case is another reminded about how shitty minoritarianism makes our lives, by destroying freedom of association.

    Granted, way, way below losing our nation--but still worth mentioning.

    In a free civilized society, we associate with whom we wish. In this case, when the parents starting throwing their hissy over the math grades .... Sidwell--with no worries about "discrimination"--could have just show them the door: "I'm afraid we don't agree on academic standards, here's a check refunding this semester's tuition ... best of luck."

    Freedom of association is an incredibly beautiful thing by virtue of being mutual. You associate when *both* parties want to--kinda like friendship, marriage, sex.

    No lawyers need apply.

    The National Merit Scholarship Program used to have an awards program just for blacks called National Achievement Scholarship Program (1964-2015). Dayo was a National Achievement Scholarship Semifinalist. Three of Dayo's Sidwell classmates were also named semifinalists. Those three attended and graduated from NYU, Dartmouth, and Johns Hopkins. They were all male, at least two were biracial, and the Dartmouth grad majored in math and Chinese.

This woman was so anti-Christian that even my progressive school made her apologize to a family for her in-class denunciations of Christians.

    After one of her classes, one of my classmates, a Jewish girl possibly incited by her, said "what's this?" then tore a Catholic medallion I got from my working-class grandparents right off my neck, and laughed in my face. I was too embarrassed to do anything about it. After all, as a 14yo boy, what are you supposed to do when one of the popular rich girls humiliates you?

    And Sidwell Friends recruited this woman. That's all I have to know about that school.

    Jews are very grabby.

    It’s how I know someone who says they aren’t Jewish has Jewish heritage.

    I’ve had Jews grab my laptop, walk into my house and just sit down and start playing the piano (that sounds not so bad…but it was very rude…as I did not invite them into the house), a rabbi grabbed my cell phone right out of my hand

    That’s a key indication of Jewish heritage

    My father-in-law does it, and I told my husband that I was going to hide all of my valuables every time they came. My husband said nothing because he knows its true. Don’t worry, we are Catholic…strongly, strongly Catholic.

    I actually keep a fake home screen on my laptop at all times just in case anyone grabs it so they won’t find out I read iSteve…it’s that bad….

    The walking into random houses and playing the piano, yeah, I do that all the time. I carry a socket wrench too, in case the piano needs tuning.

    If you ever see a Jew carrying a suspiciously large tefillin bag, you can bet he's got a socket wrench in there for tuning pianos. Me, I carry a brick too, just in case I see an iphone or a purse inside a locked car. Smash & grab, baby, smash & grab.

    As for your laptop, I don't need to grab it. If I see you with your laptop at Starbucks, I'll sit across from you. I have a thumb drive that looks like an innocent mezuzah but all I have to do is stick it into one of your USB ports and it goes to work grabbing grabbing grabbing everything. Next time you boot your laptop, you'll see it has only 64k of RAM!

    Tech reporter Peter Bright has been arrested for soliciting sex with children online. He was employed by Ars Technica until recently.
    A federal complaint alleges that Bright sought to molest a 7- and 9-year-old and met with an undercover agent for this purpose, at which point he was arrested. It also states that Bright claimed to be in a sexual relationship with an 11-year-old. He is currently being held without bail.
    At Bright’s urging, the two then began chatting via WhatsApp, which continued for a few weeks. At times using euphemisms, Bright reportedly wrote of molesting both children and raping the 7-year-old. He also allegedly sent pictures of his penis, and photos of test results showing he did not have any sexually transmitted diseases.
    According to the complaint, both consistently referred to his plans to molest the children as “teaching” them “lessons,” and Bright described how he would begin slowly and move on to more intense sexual activity.
    The agent writes that Bright inquired about whether the “lessons” were to be heteronormative. When she professed ignorance, he explained, “Does [the Girl] eat flowers and [the Boy] suck snake.”

    “I have a girl I’ve been teaching off and on for a couple of months now,” Bright reportedly wrote. “But she’s in the Bronx, which makes the logistics much harder.”
    Asked by the agent what he is good at “teaching,” Bright allegedly responded, “I think masturbation and, [sic] anal sex are probably my favourite subjects. Helping girls find those special places to touch, it’s very rewarding.”
    The conversation then shifted to Bright’s plans for the agent’s “children.” He reportedly wrote that he intended to touch and penetrate her daughter’s genitals, to have the girl give him hand jobs and oral sex, and to rape her.

  26. I’m sorry, but there’s no way this case is cert-worthy. Her lawyers make a common (and stupid) mistake: they treat the Supreme Court as any other appellate court. But it’s not — the Supreme Court decides whether to hear a case, and it only hears arguments in fewer than 100 cases a year (out of something like 7000 cert petitions). Getting your case heard is kind of like getting in to Harvard.

    To convince the Court to take your case, you have to convince the Court that the case is either really important, or that there is a significant unresolved legal issue in which lower courts have reached contradictory results. Or both.

    “The court below was wrong” is not enough. In fact, to the Supreme Court, it’s kind of beside the point. In this case, the lawyers don’t even try.

    Can you hazard a guess as to the legal bill the parents have already run up, at this point in their quest for justice?

    Well, if there is indeed already a “long list” of suits, and here they’ve gone as far as to file this loopy appeal. I’ve not yet read any if the filings or done any other research, but let’s assume each other lawsuit was at least taken to trial.

    Good lawyers in Washington (and these idiots would, I presume, not skimp) will bill at least $600.00 per hour. The hours billed could vary wildly; there are too many variables to speculate: How needy were the parents? (Every e-mail and phone call asking about progress on Princess’ case is more Italian marble for the lawyer’s new kitchen….) How much discovery was undertaken? Did the other side take the decision to be amicable and cooperative since the cases were so preposterous on their faces and doomed, letting these plaintiffs make fools of themselves while the defendant’s saved money? Or did the defendant’s take the decision to be bastards right back because of the outrageousness of the allegations and the need to look concerned and indignant about race to appease GloboHomo?

    Let me look over the filings later to see how much it all blew up in earlier cases and I’ll offer a guess. I have to go make money myself just now.

    I will say that just for filing this latest appeal it probably cost about $10,000.00 if a flat fee was intelligently negotiated with a fair firm. If they were gullible or incautious and if they hired some … wait; never mind. I see their lawyer’s address is a @aol.com domain.

    You know what? I’ve a conjecture that avoids your question, if you’ll pardon me: They are either having their deluded friend of thr family who went to Howard University’s School of Law & Refrigerator Repair do all this mess, or some Lionel Hutz type?

    Nope, wrong again; he’s pretty flyfor a black guy.

    Yeah, I have to get popcorn and get reading, but no time now.

    TL;DR:

    $10,000.00 for this appeal
    ~$100,000.00? altogether so far but can’t really say until I review more details; biggest variable: suspicion lawyer is subsidising work or heavily discounting rates because old college buddy of plaintiff, or wants publicity for perceived virtue signalling, or both….

    It was a different era.

    When Carter arrived he was the first President from the deep south--Wilson is Virginian by birth and did not stay a southerner and Johnson was a Texan--since the Civil War.

    Carter was sort of "on probation" to prove his non-racistness, and as a result Amy got dumped into the D.C schools--the best possible D.C. schools setup nearby, but nontheless the D.C. schools.

    By the time Clinton was elected, elistism was rock solid and the media was absolutely fine with him sending *his* kid to the elite private school while as a Democrat consigning all the middle class competiton to have to support/attend their local public school. Afterall, it is what all the political, legal and journalistic elites in DC do.

    ~~

    It's easy to disparage the general unpleasantness of women like Amy Carter and Chelsea Clinton--the choices they've made and mess they've made of the their lives.

    Dude is beyond creepy, but that’s the new norm. The kind of mental pathologies someone would have to have to take their kid to see this guy, or a drag queen story hour, boggles the mind.

  55. So could the takeaway from this story be that the teachers @ Sidwell began to inflate this student’s grades based on fear of her parents suing the school? Or worse yet fear of the teachers being labeled racist?

    Then when she applied for colleges which I believe do testing of students, particularly in Math, (for placement purposes in various levels of courses) her true ability became apparent and the colleges rejected her???

    Or was she just rejected from the colleges based on ‘bad’ recommendations from former teachers.

    Depending upon the reason, she could have a case.

    I hate people who give these anonymous bad references for someone and lie about it later. You could be getting turned down for numerous opportunities and still using this person because you don’t know they are giving you a bad reference. Better to just be honest and not give a reference at all. Previously when an applicant asked me for a reference (even if they were a poor employee, always late, absent, doing shoddy work) I just stated I never give references for anybody. I said the job didn’t allow me to. This wasn’t true but it was a good enough excuse…

    “Scattergood’s “bad blood” testimony constitutes direct evidence of retaliatory animus. She had no busi-ness making reference to Dayo’s parents’ nationality in Dayo’s letter of recommendation to the colleges and universities to which Dayo applied. Id. at 77a. The DCCA and the trial judge, adopted Respondent’s posi-tion, misapprehended the issue, conflating Nigerian “heritage” with Nigerian Nationalism. Id. at 13a. Scattergood did not refer to Dayo’s “heritage,” which is significantly different from one’s nationality which has legal ramifications for purposes of immigration, etc. The DCCA concluded Petitioners offered no “non-speculative evidence of harm.” Id. While Dayo’s parents
    30 are Nigerian nationals, Dayo and Lola are Americans. (App.56a). As Dayo explained, Scattergood’s refer-ence to Dayo’s parents as “Nigerian” created the false impression that Dayo was a Nigerian national. Ps’ Exh. 27, Dayo’s Depo. p. 344:15-22; 345:1-17. As a Nige-rian National, Dayo testified she would not receive the benefit of “affirmative action.” Id. Robinson v. Shell Oil Co., 519 U.S. 337, 339 (1997) (negative employment reference about former employee given in retaliation actionable). Therefore, Scattergood not only made a false statement about Dayo’s nationality, but actually hurt Dayo’s college prospects for the Fall 2014.

    This seems thinly argued, but it highlights thinking about affirmative action. Nigerians don’t get it. American blacks get it. But an American born of Nigerian parents is supposed to get it. That is what is being argued here.

    Also, I would like to see her actual test scores. The document makes references to her being nationally recognized as a math scholar. But what did she get on the AP Calculus BC exam? The SAT? The SAT Chemistry Achievement test?

    Tech reporter Peter Bright has been arrested for soliciting sex with children online. He was employed by Ars Technica until recently.
    A federal complaint alleges that Bright sought to molest a 7- and 9-year-old and met with an undercover agent for this purpose, at which point he was arrested. It also states that Bright claimed to be in a sexual relationship with an 11-year-old. He is currently being held without bail.
    At Bright’s urging, the two then began chatting via WhatsApp, which continued for a few weeks. At times using euphemisms, Bright reportedly wrote of molesting both children and raping the 7-year-old. He also allegedly sent pictures of his penis, and photos of test results showing he did not have any sexually transmitted diseases.
    According to the complaint, both consistently referred to his plans to molest the children as “teaching” them “lessons,” and Bright described how he would begin slowly and move on to more intense sexual activity.
    The agent writes that Bright inquired about whether the “lessons” were to be heteronormative. When she professed ignorance, he explained, “Does [the Girl] eat flowers and [the Boy] suck snake.”

    “I have a girl I’ve been teaching off and on for a couple of months now,” Bright reportedly wrote. “But she’s in the Bronx, which makes the logistics much harder.”
    Asked by the agent what he is good at “teaching,” Bright allegedly responded, “I think masturbation and, [sic] anal sex are probably my favourite subjects. Helping girls find those special places to touch, it’s very rewarding.”
    The conversation then shifted to Bright’s plans for the agent’s “children.” He reportedly wrote that he intended to touch and penetrate her daughter’s genitals, to have the girl give him hand jobs and oral sex, and to rape her.

  64. Here’s another interesting tidbit from the family’s Petition for Certiorari: guess who Sidwell Friends had designated as its expert witness on college admissions? This nationally-known expert had testified at his deposition — relevant excerpts of which Sidwell attached to its successful motion for summary judgment — that Miss Adetu’s lack of success with elite colleges and universities was due to the relatively lackluster quality of her grades, test scores and essay.

    And who would know what it takes to get admitted to top colleges better than William “Rick” Singer? See Petition for Certiorari, page 10, note 7. Good thing for Sidwell that it won the case on summary judgment (which has held up thus far; SCOTUS is highly unlikely to take the case), and need not proceed to trial, where Mr. Singer might be either unavailable or — even worse — eminently impeachable.

    I speculate that the parents may have contacted Rick Singer to try to get their snowflake into college (their kid was doing track after all), but when he saw the lawsuits, he said no way. Since he was running illegal schemes himself, he didn't want clients that might sue him at the drop of a hat for lack of success. The legal discovery part might have ruined him.

    Thanks for pointing out the William “Rick” Singer connection. I didn't even notice. This case has the makings of a Lifetime movie. Sasha Obama just graduated from Sidwell and still no word on where she is going for college.
  65. She was the only one out of her entire grad class of 126 students who didn’t get accepted to University. The demographics of Sidwell are approx 13% black, 7% Asian (way too low but it’s DC liberal politics) and 15% “other” (two or more ethnicities). So if it’s discrimination, how come the other 25-35 black/mixed students had no problem getting in to schools? I’m thinking the family was a big giant pain in the ass and the teachers and staff fucked them over as payback.

    Adetus claim Sidwell breached Office of Human Rights' settlement agreement
    Lawsuit notes Sidwell touts 100% college matriculation rate for its graduates

    Lawsuit evidence dates back to 2012 and mentions an incident in December that year where then-Headmaster, Thomas Farquhar, is alleged to have said  ‘all of the teachers want the Adetus gone, gone, gone from the School,’ and that ‘non-retaliation [against Dayo] is now off the table’. 

    The previous year, Dayo’s older sister Lola had filed a discrimination complaint against Sidwell with the DC Office of Human Rights.  

    Baker notes that Dayo ‘proved to be a gifted mathematician, as well as a nationally recognized merit scholar and student-athlete’ plus entertained track coaches from Brown, Princeton and Colombia.

    I scanned the 4/23/19 Writ, but didn't make the effort to locate the earlier filings (perhaps risking a lawsuit, I dunno). A couple of items were interesting.

    Page 2: "During the course of her matriculation, and until her graduation from Sidwell on June 6, 2014, Dayo proved to be a gifted mathematician [footnote 2], as well as a nationally recognized merit scholar and student-athlete."

    Footnote 2: "In the 10th grade, Dayo was the only Black girl in the School’s accelerated mathematics course, Math II."

    As Steve alludes, it was on this basis that a thousand math-grade-rounding-error ships were launched.

    The nationally recognized merit scholar phrase catches the eye, given DC's PSAT cutoff score for National Merit Semifinalist status. DC sits at the top, tied with CA, MA, MD, and NJ. Ms. Dayo being a Semifinalist isn't what's being discussed. We learn on Page 5 that Ms. Dayo "had been recognized nationally as a Math Scholar" during her freshman or sophomore year. So, something else.

    There's also a dog that doesn't bark in the epic Ms. Kozibrodzka/Mr. Markey/Mr. Heiges Math Grading/Placement Struggle Session. Against her teacher's advice, Ms. Dayo enrolled in BC Calculus (the harder one). Thus, she should have taken that AP exam (many schools mandate it). Her AP grade goes unmentioned.

    ic1000, i commend your use of primary sources–and patience–to try and suss out the strory.

    But to me, i figured i had a good take on it–95% confidence–just from
    — black kid
    — contention over grades with math teacher
    — parents suing Sidwell
    — black kid not getting into any of 13 (ivy-ish) schools.

    ==> the parents *think* their precious child is a little black genius, but the kid isn’t actually very smart and has mediocre tests scores.

    Math is the tell. Even at a PC joint like Sidwell, math is where you won’t get the black pass. The teacher will grade your paper–only 8 of 12 problems right, some partial credit for this and that … 83.

    By her parents Nigerian (?) standard, she may have seemed bright, and they continually pushed her forward. But at Sidwell, in the smarties math class, she isn’t competing against Obidigbo but against actually smart kids named Cohen and Williams and Lee.

    Ivy admissions are incredibly open to blacks, essentially because Harvard and other elite schools have ridiculously large quotas for blacks at near their population representation, which is a full order of magnitude greater than what they’d get via their test scores. This filters across the elite schools and means any actually smart black has entre to elite schools. But this girl didn’t make it. (At least at first.) And the math squabble is a giant tell as to why. Just not that bright.

    ~~~

    BTW, this case is another reminded about how shitty minoritarianism makes our lives, by destroying freedom of association.

    Granted, way, way below losing our nation–but still worth mentioning.

    In a free civilized society, we associate with whom we wish. In this case, when the parents starting throwing their hissy over the math grades …. Sidwell–with no worries about “discrimination”–could have just show them the door: “I’m afraid we don’t agree on academic standards, here’s a check refunding this semester’s tuition … best of luck.”

    Freedom of association is an incredibly beautiful thing by virtue of being mutual. You associate when *both* parties want to–kinda like friendship, marriage, sex.

    Well, if there is indeed already a "long list" of suits, and here they've gone as far as to file this loopy appeal. I've not yet read any if the filings or done any other research, but let's assume each other lawsuit was at least taken to trial.

    Good lawyers in Washington (and these idiots would, I presume, not skimp) will bill at least $600.00 per hour. The hours billed could vary wildly; there are too many variables to speculate: How needy were the parents? (Every e-mail and phone call asking about progress on Princess' case is more Italian marble for the lawyer's new kitchen....) How much discovery was undertaken? Did the other side take the decision to be amicable and cooperative since the cases were so preposterous on their faces and doomed, letting these plaintiffs make fools of themselves while the defendant's saved money? Or did the defendant's take the decision to be bastards right back because of the outrageousness of the allegations and the need to look concerned and indignant about race to appease GloboHomo?

    Let me look over the filings later to see how much it all blew up in earlier cases and I'll offer a guess. I have to go make money myself just now.

    I will say that just for filing this latest appeal it probably cost about $10,000.00 if a flat fee was intelligently negotiated with a fair firm. If they were gullible or incautious and if they hired some ... wait; never mind. I see their lawyer's address is a @aol.com domain.

    You know what? I've a conjecture that avoids your question, if you'll pardon me: They are either having their deluded friend of thr family who went to Howard University's School of Law & Refrigerator Repair do all this mess, or some Lionel Hutz type?

    Nope, wrong again; he's pretty flyfor a black guy.

    Yeah, I have to get popcorn and get reading, but no time now.

    TL;DR:

    $10,000.00 for this appeal
    ~$100,000.00? altogether so far but can't really say until I review more details; biggest variable: suspicion lawyer is subsidising work or heavily discounting rates because old college buddy of plaintiff, or wants publicity for perceived virtue signalling, or both....

Essentially, “Quakers with a vengeance” (Those character in Moby-Dick which we must count among them include Peleg, Bildad, and Ahab.) are fiery little bundles of contradiction.”

    Some of those whaling Quakers were my ancestors. Frankly, that whole passage is very exaggerated. The Quakers did it because it bought in a good living, nothing more, but it was a very dangerous way to earn some cash, and they all eventually got out of the business when better things turned up.

    ic1000, i commend your use of primary sources--and patience--to try and suss out the strory.

    But to me, i figured i had a good take on it--95% confidence--just from
    -- black kid
    -- contention over grades with math teacher
    -- parents suing Sidwell
    -- black kid not getting into any of 13 (ivy-ish) schools.

    ==> the parents *think* their precious child is a little black genius, but the kid isn't actually very smart and has mediocre tests scores.

    Math is the tell. Even at a PC joint like Sidwell, math is where you won't get the black pass. The teacher will grade your paper--only 8 of 12 problems right, some partial credit for this and that ... 83.

    By her parents Nigerian (?) standard, she may have seemed bright, and they continually pushed her forward. But at Sidwell, in the smarties math class, she isn't competing against Obidigbo but against actually smart kids named Cohen and Williams and Lee.

    Ivy admissions are incredibly open to blacks, essentially because Harvard and other elite schools have ridiculously large quotas for blacks at near their population representation, which is a full order of magnitude greater than what they'd get via their test scores. This filters across the elite schools and means any actually smart black has entre to elite schools. But this girl didn't make it. (At least at first.) And the math squabble is a giant tell as to why. Just not that bright.

    ~~~

    BTW, this case is another reminded about how shitty minoritarianism makes our lives, by destroying freedom of association.

    Granted, way, way below losing our nation--but still worth mentioning.

    In a free civilized society, we associate with whom we wish. In this case, when the parents starting throwing their hissy over the math grades .... Sidwell--with no worries about "discrimination"--could have just show them the door: "I'm afraid we don't agree on academic standards, here's a check refunding this semester's tuition ... best of luck."

    Freedom of association is an incredibly beautiful thing by virtue of being mutual. You associate when *both* parties want to--kinda like friendship, marriage, sex.

    No lawyers need apply.

    Beautiful. Thank you.

    Dozens of Memphis police injured after fatal shooting sparks violent clashes

    The crowd launched bricks and rocks at Memphis police and multiple police vehicles were damaged; the windows of a local fire station were also smashed.

    The violent clashes occurred in response to the reported death by shooting of a felony suspect, who was killed in a botched raid by US Marshals in North Memphis.

    According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, agents attempted to arrest the suspect –who reportedly had multiple felony warrants–– but the man entered a car and began ramming police vehicles indiscriminately before exiting with a weapon.
     
    That was his last move.

    The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) said it is “closely monitoring” the situation.

    Here's another interesting tidbit from the family's Petition for Certiorari: guess who Sidwell Friends had designated as its expert witness on college admissions? This nationally-known expert had testified at his deposition -- relevant excerpts of which Sidwell attached to its successful motion for summary judgment -- that Miss Adetu's lack of success with elite colleges and universities was due to the relatively lackluster quality of her grades, test scores and essay.

    And who would know what it takes to get admitted to top colleges better than William "Rick" Singer? See Petition for Certiorari, page 10, note 7. Good thing for Sidwell that it won the case on summary judgment (which has held up thus far; SCOTUS is highly unlikely to take the case), and need not proceed to trial, where Mr. Singer might be either unavailable or -- even worse -- eminently impeachable.

    I speculate that the parents may have contacted Rick Singer to try to get their snowflake into college (their kid was doing track after all), but when he saw the lawsuits, he said no way. Since he was running illegal schemes himself, he didn’t want clients that might sue him at the drop of a hat for lack of success. The legal discovery part might have ruined him.

    As Gary pointed out above, Singer makes an appearance in the lawsuit: Sidwell hired him as an expert witness to testify against Dayo, footnote 7 on page 10. The petition for cert grauitously mentions him, even though his testimony doesn't bear on the current petition, just to smear Sidwell with some slime:

    7 Sidwell’s designated college admissions expert witness is William “Rick” Singer. Sidwell’s Exh. S to MSJ, Excerpts of Singer’s Deposition (10/14/16). Mr. Singer opined that Dayo would not have been admitted to the Ivy League schools to which she applied “because her grades and . . . scores and . . . overall essay . . . was [sic] not strong.” Id. at 207:14-21; 208. Singer was indicted and plead guilty to spearheading a massive college admissions fraud scheme involving Yale, which is one of the colleges to which Dayo applied. See Indictment, U.S. v. Singer, 19 CR 10078, U.S. Dist. Ct. D. Mass. (3/5/19). The lower courts had Mr. Singer’s testimony at their disposal, as it was filed by Sidwell.

    There was a real Quaker network in the NAIS even into the 90s, and for all I know it still exists. It's not everyday you run into a Quaker, but they are fairly common in the faculties of elite secular schools.

    One of my former teachers got a Job at Sidwell Friends around 1990. She was a radically liberal Jewish single mother whose son had behavioral problems, probably because of her. This woman was so anti-Christian that even my progressive school made her apologize to a family for her in-class denunciations of Christians.

    After one of her classes, one of my classmates, a Jewish girl possibly incited by her, said "what's this?" then tore a Catholic medallion I got from my working-class grandparents right off my neck, and laughed in my face. I was too embarrassed to do anything about it. After all, as a 14yo boy, what are you supposed to do when one of the popular rich girls humiliates you?

    And Sidwell Friends recruited this woman. That's all I have to know about that school.

    I scanned the 4/23/19 Writ, but didn't make the effort to locate the earlier filings (perhaps risking a lawsuit, I dunno). A couple of items were interesting.

    Page 2: "During the course of her matriculation, and until her graduation from Sidwell on June 6, 2014, Dayo proved to be a gifted mathematician [footnote 2], as well as a nationally recognized merit scholar and student-athlete."

    Footnote 2: "In the 10th grade, Dayo was the only Black girl in the School’s accelerated mathematics course, Math II."

    As Steve alludes, it was on this basis that a thousand math-grade-rounding-error ships were launched.

    The nationally recognized merit scholar phrase catches the eye, given DC's PSAT cutoff score for National Merit Semifinalist status. DC sits at the top, tied with CA, MA, MD, and NJ. Ms. Dayo being a Semifinalist isn't what's being discussed. We learn on Page 5 that Ms. Dayo "had been recognized nationally as a Math Scholar" during her freshman or sophomore year. So, something else.

    There's also a dog that doesn't bark in the epic Ms. Kozibrodzka/Mr. Markey/Mr. Heiges Math Grading/Placement Struggle Session. Against her teacher's advice, Ms. Dayo enrolled in BC Calculus (the harder one). Thus, she should have taken that AP exam (many schools mandate it). Her AP grade goes unmentioned.

    The National Merit Scholarship Program used to have an awards program just for blacks called National Achievement Scholarship Program (1964-2015). Dayo was a National Achievement Scholarship Semifinalist. Three of Dayo’s Sidwell classmates were also named semifinalists. Those three attended and graduated from NYU, Dartmouth, and Johns Hopkins. They were all male, at least two were biracial, and the Dartmouth grad majored in math and Chinese.

    It’s even more remarkable how frivolous this case is; my lawyer friends and I saw it and have been marveling how dumb it is. The cert petition has zero chance of success, it’s embarrassingly bad. So basically the news story is that the parents are blowing tens of thousands of dollars on lawyers after already milking Sidwell for $50,000 on what was presumably an equally frivolous suit, yet they’re being treated seriously by the press.

    Affirmative action parents hire affirmative action lawyers for hopeless affirmative action lawsuits involving their affirmative action daughters. I can think of much more harmful applications of affirmative action. Considering the potential harm to economy, polity and society, this case is relatively benign.

  90. @NYMOM
    So could the takeaway from this story be that the teachers @ Sidwell began to inflate this student's grades based on fear of her parents suing the school? Or worse yet fear of the teachers being labeled racist?

    Then when she applied for colleges which I believe do testing of students, particularly in Math, (for placement purposes in various levels of courses) her true ability became apparent and the colleges rejected her???

    Or was she just rejected from the colleges based on 'bad' recommendations from former teachers.

    Depending upon the reason, she could have a case.

    I hate people who give these anonymous bad references for someone and lie about it later. You could be getting turned down for numerous opportunities and still using this person because you don't know they are giving you a bad reference. Better to just be honest and not give a reference at all. Previously when an applicant asked me for a reference (even if they were a poor employee, always late, absent, doing shoddy work) I just stated I never give references for anybody. I said the job didn't allow me to. This wasn't true but it was a good enough excuse...

Peter Bright, aka @DrPizza, a writer for Ars Technica who it has been revealed was arrested for attempting to solicit a 7 and 9 year old girl and boy via their mother (Actually an FBI officer) in NYC. He also claims he had an ongoing sexual relationship with an 11 year old girl in the Bronx.

    He'd also like you to know he is an immigrant, a Londoner, New Yorker and European.

    https://www.dailydot.com/layer8/peter-bright-charged-soliciting-sex-minors/

    Tech reporter Peter Bright has been arrested for soliciting sex with children online. He was employed by Ars Technica until recently.
    A federal complaint alleges that Bright sought to molest a 7- and 9-year-old and met with an undercover agent for this purpose, at which point he was arrested. It also states that Bright claimed to be in a sexual relationship with an 11-year-old. He is currently being held without bail.
    At Bright’s urging, the two then began chatting via WhatsApp, which continued for a few weeks. At times using euphemisms, Bright reportedly wrote of molesting both children and raping the 7-year-old. He also allegedly sent pictures of his penis, and photos of test results showing he did not have any sexually transmitted diseases.
    According to the complaint, both consistently referred to his plans to molest the children as “teaching” them “lessons,” and Bright described how he would begin slowly and move on to more intense sexual activity.
    The agent writes that Bright inquired about whether the “lessons” were to be heteronormative. When she professed ignorance, he explained, “Does [the Girl] eat flowers and [the Boy] suck snake.”

    “I have a girl I’ve been teaching off and on for a couple of months now,” Bright reportedly wrote. “But she’s in the Bronx, which makes the logistics much harder.”
    Asked by the agent what he is good at “teaching,” Bright allegedly responded, “I think masturbation and, [sic] anal sex are probably my favourite subjects. Helping girls find those special places to touch, it’s very rewarding.”
    The conversation then shifted to Bright’s plans for the agent’s “children.” He reportedly wrote that he intended to touch and penetrate her daughter’s genitals, to have the girl give him hand jobs and oral sex, and to rape her.

    ‘Despite the fact that Sidwell touts a 100% college matriculation rate for its graduating high school seniors, Dayo did not receive unconditional acceptance to any of the thirteen (13) universities to which she applied and desired admission,’ Richard Baker, the Adetus' lawyer says in the April Supreme Court documents.

    Lawsuit evidence dates back to 2012 and mentions an incident in December that year where then-Headmaster, Thomas Farquhar, is alleged to have said  'all of the teachers want the Adetus gone, gone, gone from the School,' and that 'non-retaliation [against Dayo] is now off the table'. 

    The previous year, Dayo's older sister Lola had filed a discrimination complaint against Sidwell with the DC Office of Human Rights.  

    Baker notes that Dayo 'proved to be a gifted mathematician, as well as a nationally recognized merit scholar and student-athlete' plus entertained track coaches from Brown, Princeton and Colombia.
     
    “My client is proficient and efficient, never deficient, in the 100 meter backflip, the timed triple dip, and the weave rip grip. Her treatment is a travesty of malevolent magnitude, and egregious lack of gratitude, as exhibited by Sidwell’s obstreperous attitude, in the face of my client’s indubitable aptitude.”

Good thing for Sidwell that it won the case on summary judgment (which has held up thus far; SCOTUS is highly unlikely to take the case), and need not proceed to trial, where Mr. Singer might be either unavailable or -- even worse -- eminently impeachable.

    Thanks for pointing out the William “Rick” Singer connection. I didn’t even notice. This case has the makings of a Lifetime movie. Sasha Obama just graduated from Sidwell and still no word on where she is going for college.

    The black elite used to educate their young quite well at such schools. Now they’re mismatched into the Ivies to have their heads filled with nonsense like the Roman Empire used to take the most promising scions of the Germanic tribes to Rome to educate (sic) them before returning them to wreak havoc among the tribes.

    The blatant discrimination by the Ivies against regular American white males could be a blessing in disguise.

    Nike is the Greek goddess of success in war, so it’s the cognate of Victoria. African immigrants are from the upper (if out-of-power) classes, so it’s hardly unlikely that her name is a classical rather than commercial reference.

    Two: We don't know why she's named Nike. There are both noble and profane reasons that come to mind. Knowing her siblings' names might clear things up.

    And though Americans are more literate than Africans in general, it might be the opposite case when it comes to someone else's language. That would be to our shame if true.

    There are occasions when Africans do the right thing and we don't. Eg, taking marriage seriously.

    It was a different era.

    When Carter arrived he was the first President from the deep south–Wilson is Virginian by birth and did not stay a southerner and Johnson was a Texan–since the Civil War.

    Carter was sort of “on probation” to prove his non-racistness, and as a result Amy got dumped into the D.C schools–the best possible D.C. schools setup nearby, but nontheless the D.C. schools.

    By the time Clinton was elected, elistism was rock solid and the media was absolutely fine with him sending *his* kid to the elite private school while as a Democrat consigning all the middle class competiton to have to support/attend their local public school. Afterall, it is what all the political, legal and journalistic elites in DC do.

    It’s easy to disparage the general unpleasantness of women like Amy Carter and Chelsea Clinton–the choices they’ve made and mess they’ve made of the their lives.

    Good lawyers in Washington (and these idiots would, I presume, not skimp) will bill at least $600.00 per hour. The hours billed could vary wildly; there are too many variables to speculate: How needy were the parents? (Every e-mail and phone call asking about progress on Princess' case is more Italian marble for the lawyer's new kitchen....) How much discovery was undertaken? Did the other side take the decision to be amicable and cooperative since the cases were so preposterous on their faces and doomed, letting these plaintiffs make fools of themselves while the defendant's saved money? Or did the defendant's take the decision to be bastards right back because of the outrageousness of the allegations and the need to look concerned and indignant about race to appease GloboHomo?

    Let me look over the filings later to see how much it all blew up in earlier cases and I'll offer a guess. I have to go make money myself just now.

    I will say that just for filing this latest appeal it probably cost about $10,000.00 if a flat fee was intelligently negotiated with a fair firm. If they were gullible or incautious and if they hired some ... wait; never mind. I see their lawyer's address is a @aol.com domain.

    ic1000, i commend your use of primary sources--and patience--to try and suss out the strory.

    But to me, i figured i had a good take on it--95% confidence--just from
    -- black kid
    -- contention over grades with math teacher
    -- parents suing Sidwell
    -- black kid not getting into any of 13 (ivy-ish) schools.

    ==> the parents *think* their precious child is a little black genius, but the kid isn't actually very smart and has mediocre tests scores.

    Math is the tell. Even at a PC joint like Sidwell, math is where you won't get the black pass. The teacher will grade your paper--only 8 of 12 problems right, some partial credit for this and that ... 83.

    By her parents Nigerian (?) standard, she may have seemed bright, and they continually pushed her forward. But at Sidwell, in the smarties math class, she isn't competing against Obidigbo but against actually smart kids named Cohen and Williams and Lee.

    Ivy admissions are incredibly open to blacks, essentially because Harvard and other elite schools have ridiculously large quotas for blacks at near their population representation, which is a full order of magnitude greater than what they'd get via their test scores. This filters across the elite schools and means any actually smart black has entre to elite schools. But this girl didn't make it. (At least at first.) And the math squabble is a giant tell as to why. Just not that bright.

    ~~~

    BTW, this case is another reminded about how shitty minoritarianism makes our lives, by destroying freedom of association.

    Granted, way, way below losing our nation--but still worth mentioning.

    In a free civilized society, we associate with whom we wish. In this case, when the parents starting throwing their hissy over the math grades .... Sidwell--with no worries about "discrimination"--could have just show them the door: "I'm afraid we don't agree on academic standards, here's a check refunding this semester's tuition ... best of luck."

    Freedom of association is an incredibly beautiful thing by virtue of being mutual. You associate when *both* parties want to--kinda like friendship, marriage, sex.

    No lawyers need apply.

    There was a real Quaker network in the NAIS even into the 90s, and for all I know it still exists. It's not everyday you run into a Quaker, but they are fairly common in the faculties of elite secular schools.

    One of my former teachers got a Job at Sidwell Friends around 1990. She was a radically liberal Jewish single mother whose son had behavioral problems, probably because of her. This woman was so anti-Christian that even my progressive school made her apologize to a family for her in-class denunciations of Christians.

    After one of her classes, one of my classmates, a Jewish girl possibly incited by her, said "what's this?" then tore a Catholic medallion I got from my working-class grandparents right off my neck, and laughed in my face. I was too embarrassed to do anything about it. After all, as a 14yo boy, what are you supposed to do when one of the popular rich girls humiliates you?

    And Sidwell Friends recruited this woman. That's all I have to know about that school.

    Parents took steps to address perceived racially discriminatory
    grading practices of Ms. Kozibrodzka, Dayo’s Math II instructor during her 2011-2012 school year.
     
    Sounds like an unlikable girl, with parents to match.

    Can a black panther (Panthera pardus) change its spots?

    No, but it can look menacing while David Bowie croons:

    After avoiding mainstream Hollywood movies like the plague for over half a decade, I saw two movies in the theater this week.

    On Thursday, I went with my cousin and her kids to see The Secret Life of Pets 2. Besides us, there were maybe ten people in the theater.

    Her kids are mulatto, so you can imagine how well they behaved. Honestly, I was a little embarrassed, mainly because I wondered if people would assume I was a beta schlump who ended up settling for a single mom with a black baby-daddy. I kept emphasizing (loudly) that I was hanging out with my *relatives*.

    My cousin’s black husband is no smarter than the average African-American, but he has an admirable work ethic. They’ve been together for ten years. And he’s not alpha in the least – my cousin and my aunt walk all over him. He works for the county and pulls in plenty of overtime.

    Interestingly, the seven-year-old boy responded to me far more than his mother. I didn’t even raise my voice – I just said, emphatically, “T., don’t touch that! Come here!” … and he obeyed. But then two seconds later he was wandering off again with his five-year-old sister. Those kids are in desperate need of discipline and structure and they’re not getting any of it.

    Today I saw Ma. Besides me, there were no more than six people in the theater.

    Ma was hardly a masterpiece, just a decent little horror movie. Octavia Spencer did a pretty good job portraying a lonely miserable (black) frump who still resented being mistreated by the (white) popular kids in high school. She was like a fat old black version of Carrie without telekinetic powers.

    From the Daily Mail article:

    ‘Despite the fact that Sidwell touts a 100% college matriculation rate for its graduating high school seniors, Dayo did not receive unconditional acceptance to any of the thirteen (13) universities to which she applied and desired admission,’ Richard Baker, the Adetus' lawyer says in the April Supreme Court documents.

    Lawsuit evidence dates back to 2012 and mentions an incident in December that year where then-Headmaster, Thomas Farquhar, is alleged to have said  'all of the teachers want the Adetus gone, gone, gone from the School,' and that 'non-retaliation [against Dayo] is now off the table'. 

    The previous year, Dayo's older sister Lola had filed a discrimination complaint against Sidwell with the DC Office of Human Rights.  

    Baker notes that Dayo 'proved to be a gifted mathematician, as well as a nationally recognized merit scholar and student-athlete' plus entertained track coaches from Brown, Princeton and Colombia.
     
    “My client is proficient and efficient, never deficient, in the 100 meter backflip, the timed triple dip, and the weave rip grip. Her treatment is a travesty of malevolent magnitude, and egregious lack of gratitude, as exhibited by Sidwell’s obstreperous attitude, in the face of my client’s indubitable aptitude.”

    She was the only one out of her entire grad class of 126 students who didn't get accepted to University. The demographics of Sidwell are approx 13% black, 7% Asian (way too low but it's DC liberal politics) and 15% "other" (two or more ethnicities). So if it's discrimination, how come the other 25-35 black/mixed students had no problem getting in to schools? I'm thinking the family was a big giant pain in the ass and the teachers and staff fucked them over as payback.

    Nike is the Greek goddess of success in war, so it's the cognate of Victoria. African immigrants are from the upper (if out-of-power) classes, so it's hardly unlikely that her name is a classical rather than commercial reference.

  167. I’m late to the party because I’ve been reading, making notes, and eating popcorn, but what the Hell, I may as well share:

    I’m digging into the petition now. It starts stornf by listing the Restatement of Contracts as a statute in its table of authorities.

    Other points of interest:

    Dayo is African-American, but her parents are Nigerian nationals….

    Dayo proved to be a gifted mathematician as well as a nationally recognized merit scholarand student-athlete. [Emphasis mine.]

    I see what you did there, Mr. Carnell. Well played.

    In the 10th grade, Dayo was the only Black girl in the School’s accelerated mathematics course, Math II.

    Because she was probably the only one not descended from the Nigerians stupid enough to get enslaved, but from the Nigerians clever enough to have done the enslaving. N.B. Also that her being the only Negro in this class is offered as the sole support for the assertion that she was a “gifted mathematician” – more bizarre reasoning.

    Hereafter, to expedite analysis, I omit reference to the corrections I make to Carnell’s orthography, grammar, etc.

    Despite the fact that Sidwell touts a one hundred per cent college matriculation rate for its graduating high school seniors, Dayo did not receive unconditional acceptance to any of the thirteen universities to which she applied and desired admission. In fact, Dayo was the only student in her graduating class of one hundred and twenty-six students who did not receive unconditional acceptance from any educational institution to which she applied.

    There are two implicit arguments in the passage infra, one in each sentence. Neither is logically valid. The flaws in both lines of reasoning are exactly the same phrase of four words –acknowledging explicitly the defendant had no part in the critical variable! – as though the attention called to them by repetition is a goal of the writer. This phrase is repeated in the petition so many times I lost count of it. Imagine a Japanese man trying to convince an American the Second World War was all the American’s fault, yet constantly peppering his conversation with the phrase “after the premeditated and dastardly attack by Japan at Pearl Harbor.” It’s an interesting approach to advocacy. The most successful route for dealing with unavoidable facts detrimental to one’s case is to acknowldge them, downplay their relevance, emphasising the mitigating circumstances fir your fellow, and then move on quickly to the far more egregious behaviour of the other guy, who is in fact the true villain. But, hey, I didn’t get into the Ivy League either (I also never bothered applying). I digress.

    The parents took steps to address perceived racially discriminatory grading practices of Ms. Kozibrodzka….

    A German man taught AP Calculus at my high school – to the five student who could hack it (I suspect his standards and discipline were as much the challenge as was the subject). I have heard Polish teachers of math and science are similiarly grim; and eastern Europeans are not renowned for their love of GloboHomo. Consider sending Mrs. Kozibrodzka missive of solidarity and support.

    Kozibrodzka also made academic achievement difficult for Dayo in various other ways, but most significantly by failing to make the same allowances for Dayo’s hectic schedule as an out of state track competitor, as she did for Dayo’s white peers in the same predicament.

    Notice the vague generalisations lacking detail. What accomodations? To whom? The lack of such details here guarantees what those details are, as a matter of record in the trial below: the white students responsibly notified the teachers ahead of time about conflicting schedules, abided by agreed-upon deadlines, made up classes, etc. The Negro girl, on the other hand, quite likely only announced conflicts at the last minute or even after the fact (“I need to re-take the test; my grade is not fair because I’d had a meet the day before in Delaware…”), and so on.

    Incidentally: I ran competitively in high school. I never considered being a varsity athlete a “predicament.” An honour, more like. And it didn’t affect my abilities to master trigonometry at all.

    Dayo first began to notice that she was not being treated equally to her student-peers beginning in 2011, a year after her older sister Lola had filed a discrimination complaint against Respondent.

    Our conjectures about how much money these clowns have spent on lawyers just doubled; Hank Williams wasn’t the first now the last man to have a family tradition, after all.

    During a meeting on December 6, 2012, Mr. Farquhar, [the headmaster,] having clearly grown frustrated by the Parents’ advocacy on behalf of Dayo, angrily blurted out during a meeting “all of the teachers want the Adetus gone, gone, gone from the School,” and that “non-retaliation [against Dayo] is now off the table.”

    Come now, surely this line ar least merits an exclamation point! Has anyone, anywhere, ever, in the history of angrily blurting out things during meetings, ever angrily blurted out during a meeting “non-retaliation … is now off the table?”

    Mr. Markey, Dayo’s calculus teacher during her 2012-2013 scholastic year, followed Ms. Kozibrodzka’s example and began manipulating Dayo’s math grades as well. For the fall calculus course, Mr. Markey graded Dayo as an “A-” instead of an “A,” although Dayo had earned a final score of 93.112%, which according to Sidwell’s own policy constitutes an “A.”

    It’s becoming easy ti understand why all of the teachers wanted to be rid of these quarrelsome nigglers.

    The petition goes on like this; it’s not a whole lot more than what you all already knew it was, if you’ve not bothered to reas it yourself. I’m bored with it and feeling self-indulgent by mocking it – it’s like beating up a retarded five-year-old.

    I will leave off with this fun nugget:

    Sidwell’s designated college admissions expert witness is William “Rick” Singer. Mr. Singer opined that Dayo would not have been admitted to the Ivy League schools to which she applied “because her grades and . . . scores and . . . overall essay . . . was [sic] not strong.” Singer was indicted and plead guilty to spearheading a massive college admissions fraud scheme involving Yale, which is one of the colleges to which Dayo applied. The lower courts had Mr. Singer’s testimony at their disposal, as it was filed by Sidwell.

    Why didn’t this doctor just do what that other, cagier doctor did to get his daughter into college, instead of spending all the money on Italian marble for lawyers’ kitchens? My guess is Dr. Adetu, like so many before him, just forgot about Dre….

Seems the Founders set up institutions on the common-sense assumption that embarrassment, public humiliation, and even ostracism would deter people from abusing them. The triumph of the anything-goes culture is that, well, anything goes. E.g. we are well into the early stages of the destruction of high school/college women’s sports. One gets more of what one celebrates, be it M2F transgenders shoving females or the privileged seeking to monetize imagined grievances.

    "After they immigrated to North America, some Quakers broke with traditional standards by assimilating with whaling culture, which resulted in changes in speech and behavior. They began to “talk shark a bit” and curse using a mixture of archaic language and whaling/sailing lingo. Melville describes this new breed of Quaker as comprised of “men anomalously modified [unusually altered] by things altogether alien and heterogeneous.” They had become living, breathing, swearing and praying oxymorons. Their great religious fervor morphed into a fiery passion for whaling, its affairs and industry. These pacifists-of-the-land turned warriors-of-the-sea were “fighting Quakers.” The whaling industry also inexorably led the Quakers into a preoccupation with money, business, material property and wealth: all contrary to their doctrine about refraining from storing up treasures on earth, based on the book of Matthew (which Captain Bildad quotes under his breath even as he offers the smallest portion of profit, or lay, possible to Ishmael). Essentially, “Quakers with a vengeance” (Those character in Moby-Dick which we must count among them include Peleg, Bildad, and Ahab.) are fiery little bundles of contradiction."

    As Gary pointed out above, Singer makes an appearance in the lawsuit: Sidwell hired him as an expert witness to testify against Dayo, footnote 7 on page 10. The petition for cert grauitously mentions him, even though his testimony doesn’t bear on the current petition, just to smear Sidwell with some slime:

    7 Sidwell’s designated college admissions expert witness is William “Rick” Singer. Sidwell’s Exh. S to MSJ, Excerpts of Singer’s Deposition (10/14/16). Mr. Singer opined that Dayo would not have been admitted to the Ivy League schools to which she applied “because her grades and . . . scores and . . . overall essay . . . was [sic] not strong.” Id. at 207:14-21; 208. Singer was indicted and plead guilty to spearheading a massive college admissions fraud scheme involving Yale, which is one of the colleges to which Dayo applied. See Indictment, U.S. v. Singer, 19 CR 10078, U.S. Dist. Ct. D. Mass. (3/5/19). The lower courts had Mr. Singer’s testimony at their disposal, as it was filed by Sidwell.

    I’m coming to believe that the zero for 13 result was because she was applying to engineering schools, which are more merit based and are less susceptible to affirmative action approaches. The application process is the first of several “weed-out” steps in getting an entineering degree.

    Sidwell’s omission of Dayo’s chemistry score disqualified her for admission to several engineering programs to which she applied, including McGill University

    And she is now at Penn Engineering, which requires a separate application process, just like Wharton and the School of Nursing at Penn.

    Maybe dad is an engineer? Maybe there is some U.S.-Nigerian development pipeline thing that he could use his connections to slot her into.

    Hereafter, to expedite analysis, I omit reference to the corrections I make to Carnell's orthography, grammar, etc.

    Despite the fact that Sidwell touts a one hundred per cent college matriculation rate for its graduating high school seniors, Dayo did not receive unconditional acceptance to any of the thirteen universities to which she applied and desired admission.

Imagine a Japanese man trying to convince an American the Second World War was all the American's fault, yet constantly peppering his conversation with the phrase "after the premeditated and dastardly attack by Japan at Pearl Harbor." It's an interesting approach to advocacy. The most successful route for dealing with unavoidable facts detrimental to one's case is to acknowldge them, downplay their relevance, emphasising the mitigating circumstances fir your fellow, and then move on quickly to the far more egregious behaviour of the other guy, who is in fact the true villain.

I have heard Polish teachers of math and science are similiarly grim; and eastern Europeans are not renowned for their love of GloboHomo. Consider sending Mrs. Kozibrodzka missive of solidarity and support.

    Kozibrodzka also made academic achievement difficult for Dayo in various other ways, but most significantly by failing to make the same allowances for Dayo’s hectic schedule as an out of state track competitor, as she did for Dayo’s white peers in the same predicament.
     
    Notice the vague generalisations lacking detail. What accomodations? To whom? The lack of such details here guarantees what those details are, as a matter of record in the trial below: the white students responsibly notified the teachers ahead of time about conflicting schedules, abided by agreed-upon deadlines, made up classes, etc. The Negro girl, on the other hand, quite likely only announced conflicts at the last minute or even after the fact ("I need to re-take the test; my grade is not fair because I'd had a meet the day before in Delaware..."), and so on.

    Incidentally: I ran competitively in high school. I never considered being a varsity athlete a "predicament." An honour, more like. And it didn't affect my abilities to master trigonometry at all.

    Dayo first began to notice that she was not being treated equally to her student-peers beginning in 2011, a year after her older sister Lola had filed a discrimination complaint against Respondent.
     
    Our conjectures about how much money these clowns have spent on lawyers just doubled; Hank Williams wasn't the first now the last man to have a family tradition, after all.

    During a meeting on December 6, 2012, Mr. Farquhar, [the headmaster,] having clearly grown frustrated by the Parents’ advocacy on behalf of Dayo, angrily blurted out during a meeting “all of the teachers want the Adetus gone, gone, gone from the School,” and that “non-retaliation [against Dayo] is now off the table.”
     
    Come now, surely this line ar least merits an exclamation point! Has anyone, anywhere, ever, in the history of angrily blurting out things during meetings, ever angrily blurted out during a meeting "non-retaliation ... is now off the table?"

    Mr. Markey, Dayo’s calculus teacher during her 2012-2013 scholastic year, followed Ms. Kozibrodzka’s example and began manipulating Dayo’s math grades as well. For the fall calculus course, Mr. Markey graded Dayo as an “A-” instead of an “A,” although Dayo had earned a final score of 93.112%, which according to Sidwell’s own policy constitutes an “A."
     
    It's becoming easy ti understand why all of the teachers wanted to be rid of these quarrelsome nigglers.

    The petition goes on like this; it's not a whole lot more than what you all already knew it was, if you've not bothered to reas it yourself. I'm bored with it and feeling self-indulgent by mocking it – it's like beating up a retarded five-year-old.

    I will leave off with this fun nugget:

    Sidwell’s designated college admissions expert witness is William “Rick” Singer. Mr. Singer opined that Dayo would not have been admitted to the Ivy League schools to which she applied “because her grades and . . . scores and . . . overall essay . . . was [sic] not strong.” Singer was indicted and plead guilty to spearheading a massive college admissions fraud scheme involving Yale, which is one of the colleges to which Dayo applied. The lower courts had Mr. Singer’s testimony at their disposal, as it was filed by Sidwell.

    The nationally recognized merit scholar phrase catches the eye, given DC’s PSAT cutoff score for National Merit Semifinalist status. DC sits at the top, tied with CA, MA, MD, and NJ. Ms. Dayo being a Semifinalist isn’t what’s being discussed.
     
    The National Merit Scholarship Program used to have an awards program just for blacks called National Achievement Scholarship Program (1964-2015). Dayo was a National Achievement Scholarship Semifinalist. Three of Dayo's Sidwell classmates were also named semifinalists. Those three attended and graduated from NYU, Dartmouth, and Johns Hopkins. They were all male, at least two were biracial, and the Dartmouth grad majored in math and Chinese.

    This effort to conflate the two was my point in citing the gag about “McDowell’s” and “McDonald’s” – Mr. Carnell is insinuating she was a National Merit Scholar. His verbiage is misleading but not false.

    According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, agents attempted to arrest the suspect –who reportedly had multiple felony warrants–– but the man entered a car and began ramming police vehicles indiscriminately before exiting with a weapon.

    They used taxpayer money to remodel the schools. Changing cubes for girls. Halal food. There are articles everywhere. Along with one or two brave articles a year asking where the ninth grade girls are, followed by the journalist getting cost reduced out of his paper

    The Weekly Standard is not a moonbat, tinfoil-hat outfit last I knew.

    Are Michigan's duly elected legislators loony? (Maybe; many federal legislators sure are....)

    Maybe these "security guards" [sic] committing multiple assaults and batteries are paid actors, along with their victims?

    The Press and Guide seem to be a local outfit; I don't know much about them – they sure do seem to know a lot about all the Christian teachers getting systematically shit-canned by the Musselman administrators in Dearborn's schools, though.

    Perhaps an obviously disinterested character calling himself "Bengali-Canadian" (was the contradictory rap-name "Phresh 'Fro Son" already taken?) is the one to believe here, though.

    OT. There are no porn stars anymore. The business sucks in and shreds up the talent in a matter of months these days.
     
    Why? What is it doing to destroy its talent?

    Porn producers treat the talent worse than ISIS terrorists treat Yazidi women. Porn has followed the trajectory of horror movies, going to ridiculous extremes to satisfy the jaded appetite of their audience.

    I am shocked that no college wants to admit a girl who sued her high school.

    Next thing you tell me is the Oberlin shoplifters who cost them $30 million won’t get a job at Oberlin after graduation.

    It’s more likely Oberlin will be required to hire them all for life by way of reparations for exposing them to such unpleasantness that otherwise would have just flown under the radar and been settled more locally.

    uzzies have their own district, in Dearborn, which is sharia compliant

    Dearborn public schools close for Eid al-Fitr. In 2020, Detroit public schools will close for Eid al-Fitr for the first time.

    That does not prove it. Lots of places around the world give a day off. Does abide by Halakakic(or whatever) law because it allows passover or other jewish holidays(canada does, when I was in Toronto at least). No it doesnt

    With so many amateurs performing for free, why would anyone pay for porn anymore?

    Any who needs porn anyway when you have YouTube? Seriously, some of the stuff on there…

    Perhaps you have misspelled autistic as Canadian.

    No one with two neurons to rub together reckoned Lawyer Guy meant to say Dearborn had literally proclaimed independence from both Michigan and the federal government to enact its own sharia statutes; you're either taking the piss or you're as stupid as most of your dusky ilk.

    These people are Canadians:

    I love Canadians. I have known hundreds, and they have all been fast friends. My people and Canadians have a long history of deep friendship and abiding peace; our cultures are, arguably, more similar, compatible, and intertwined than the cultures of any two nations anywhere on the Earth. I have fond memories of gorgeous, charming Canadiennes with whom I have been romantically involved. I have fought beside Canadians as brothers in arms. I know Canadians, and you are no Canadian.

    No, he knew what he meant. he said it was sharia compliant implying something. It was a dogwhistle which he never proved because it was wrong. Simple. Stay mad
