I never seen a website that makes so much racist comments about minority students that is not addressed. I was in the general chat making comments about law school and the lsat and some of the group members were making racist remarks towards me as well as stating im not going to get into law school cause of my race and was calling me a nazi. The chat admin ararara or whatever her name is blocked me because of my race
