Your link to “Flyers Threatening White HP Parents Who Send Their Kids to the Ivy League Reek of Fakeness” left me completely confused. To start with, I associate HP with Harry Potter in headlines, all other things being equal. But when I clicked the link, i found that HP meant Highland Park, a suburb (I think) in Dallas. The article from a Dallas paper continued to confuse me with its knowing references to local politics that I, a resident of Connecticut, could make no sense of. I gathered, I think, that the Republicans are the bad guys in some scheme to shame liberal parents with successful high school children applying to colleges. But really, I couldn’t make head nor tail of the article as it was written, apparently, to an elite group of Highland Park (got it!) parents who had – what? – been cross-shamed for something involving the Ivy League. Really, it was pretty hard to read.
