Mike Adams

Hello again, Mark. I'm looking for evidence of your employment at a Manhattan law firm. Can you provide me with the name of the firm and the email address of your boss? That's only fair since you intend to email my boss. In fairness, let me provide the same information about my employer. It is UNC-Wilmington and the email address for my boss is chancellor@uncw.edu. By the way, her name is Rosemary but she prefers to be called Her Majesty or Queen DePaolo.

Mark, I am so sorry but in the middle of this little pissing contest it has dawned on me that I never answered your question about George W. Bush and affirmative action. Actually, I’m glad you chose the President as an example because we both applied to law school at The University of Texas. Despite his wealthy background, Bush did not get into UT Law. And, despite my poor Mississippi roots, I did. If you would like confirmation of the fact that none of my four grandparents graduated from college, I would be glad to provide it for you. As one who has relatives who go by names like Mamie Del, Aunt (pronounced “ain’t”) Ophelia, and Uncle Peanut I resent your suggestion that I benefit from a “white privileged” upbringing. I can go head to head with the likes of a George W. Bush and beat him without the help of affirmative action. So can anyone else if he will simply get off his whining (backside) and channel all of the energy he puts into climbing the victim ladder somewhere else; namely, into hard work.

Put simply, if you can’t make it in this country without a handout, you can’t make it anywhere. Get to work or get the hell out of the country. That’s my philosophy. Have I answered your questions about affirmative action, Mark?

p.s. Do you really work for a Manhattan law firm?

Mark, you will be pleased to know that this is the final email I am sending to you. The principal purpose of this last note is to let you know that The University of Michigan is now the fifth institution of higher learning to be featured in my “Colleges to Avoid” series. Presently, the list is as follows:

  1. Champlain College
  2. Georgia Institute of Technology
  3. UNC-Greensboro
  4. The University of Texas
  5. The University of Michigan

There are three reasons why your school has made the list. They follow in order of importance:

  1. I have received more emails from Michigan alums criticizing their alma mater – almost always for intellectual intolerance - than any other school in America.
  2. I have concluded – from her recent public statements - that the University of Michigan president has no intention of respecting the Michigan voters’ recent statement against affirmative action. I fully expect the school to violate the law because the administration is simply lawless and arrogant.
  3. I have received more annoying emails from www.umich.edu addresses in the last several years – copied to my bosses and calling for my termination – than any other school in America. You join a long list of narrow-minded feminists, transvestites, and homosexuals who have tried to get me fired from UNC-Wilmington by contacting my bosses.

I hope my readers use the information in this column to send you a loud message that your tactics against me will only backfire. I am a man willing to lose his job for his convictions. I’m not some spineless coward posing as an influential lawyer in a Manhattan law firm.

Would you like my chancellor’s phone number, too?
