    "I'm here as the UPrep 2018 valedictorian to tell you that you couldn't break me. I'm still here, and I'm still here strong," Lovett said in the video. "And after all these years, all this anger I've had toward you and UPrep as a whole, I realized I had to let that go in order to better myself."

    Nah,
    No racism. No racism.
    How do those famous vaulted words go?
    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

    Ahem, yeh. They just forgot to add that is, if you were..... free, white and 21. Uh, and oh yeh just happen to be male.
    No others need apply.
