    - He Graduated from Dartmouth College, considered to be one of the most racist colleges in the US

    and ironically enough, my only impressions of Dartmouth were formed by my close friend who's a grad, and I've met many of his classmates over the years, who he's still close with. He's been president of the Black Students of Dartmouth group, lol.

    He never mentioned it. But, he wouldn't. It's not like him to say something like that.

      As a grad of another Ivy League school, and someone who now lives not far away from Dartmouth, I've also NEVER heard of it referred to as "one of the most racist colleges in the US."

      One of the best party schools...now THAT I've heard.

          colleges?" In the early-mid 80s, almost every Ivy had a small group of conservative students--remember who was president of the country at the time? [Hint: initials are RR.] David Frum was at my school, and he and some of his cronies also founded a conservative publication. They were not in the mainstream either, and certainly NOT representative of the student body as a whole. Believe me: it was a very open and accepting environment, racially and GLBT-wise. We kinda felt sorry for the conserva-geeks.
