Supercool: I was just going to say a student has to write a paper about hate speech, so I showed him that.

Supercool: I just stared at him for a bit. I decided he was serious and said “No. No you can not. You’ll have to actually write your paper.”
He said something about not wanting to and I said “That is what you I can’t believe I seriously had to have that conversation.

Supercool: No. If you don’t want to, don’t go to college.
