What about the maple leaf, eh? I am sure that I could find examples, just not at school.

Tell that to the authorities in the US.

Agreed.

Speech should not be restricted, with the normal exceptions of yelling fire in a theater, or spreading untrue libel.

The Buckeye is the state tree of Ohio. Nice work, officer.

There are many other plants which leaves resemble weed, even more than Canadian maple.

A 2009 Princeton study found that Asian-Americans need an SAT score 140 points higher than whites to get into a top private college. But compared to Hispanics, they need to score 270 points higher and compared to blacks, 450 points higher.

Proponents of race-based admissions point to Harvard's latest student body data that shows the class of 2021 is more than 22 percent Asian-American — higher than the nearly 15 percent of African-Americans, nearly 12 percent of Latinos and 2.5 percent of Native Americans or Pacific Islanders.

The real minorities here are those with low GPAs.

I wonder whether they're accounting for all the people who got into those so-called top private colleges only because that's where their parents (and grandparents &c) went.

FTM, why would a poor to middle-class person with any sense want to go to one of those schools, instead of a state university where you'll get as good an education (if not better) for a lot less money?
