His mistake? He is a Kashmiri.
Rini Sampath is the kind of kid every parent would be proud of. Recently, the international relations major won the election to be the president of the undergraduate student body at the University of Southern California. She ignored everyone who told her she would not win because she was not White. She also disregarded the advice that she should pick a White running mate for vice president and instead chose another minority student. I wish things had ended there, on a happy note.
