Review of Gangster Capitalism - College Scandal

Thank you...thank you for putting this very transparent and brilliant piece together providing in depth details as to the college admission scandal. I was absolutely disgusted when the news first broke of this but to hear the telephone exchanges of these ridiculously greedy sand disconnected parents and Rick Singer...absolutely took me over the edge. Their poor kids. Literally showing no faith in them in the end as they are only another commodity for them to market. My only hope was that this would blow up the college system that is outdated and in favor of white wealth...I thought it would effectively shut down the college board and the idiotic testing system that has kept so many hopeful young people out of a 4 years chance putting a number ahead of a human...I had hoped those who participated would see real time ....not a country club short term prison sentence. Imagine if these parents who were trying to game the system weren’t white. What then might be the outcome. So much to be ashamed of for sure.
