Harvard Releases “We Are the 6%” T-Shirt (This Is Getting Really Old)
2:06 pm, November 15th | by Amy Tennery
I’m having a hard time articulating what’s especially obnoxious about this shirt, which Harvard has just released in anticipation for its football game against ‘epic rival’ Yale. But I’m going to give it a try:
uuuuuugaaaahhhhhhh HARVARD. Seriously? Oh, you are the 6 percent? Right, that’s because your admissions rate is 6 percent — that’s soooo funny. So you can use the Occupy movement to perpetuate a sports rivalry and simultaneously perpetuate some of the ugliest stereotypes that exist about Harvard. Congrats. You’re already “elite” — everyone knows that. Don’t jump the shark to “elitist.”
Meanwhile, try not to run into these people on the way out of econ class — and remember, if you can take solace in one thing, know that you’ve effectively formed a human PR shield around Jay-Z. He knows a thing or two about using the OWS slogan to terrible effect.
