Six months after Sebastian Ridley-Thomas’ resignation, the California State Assembly hadn’t given up on him.

The public relations advisors suggest that the messenger be shot rather than deal with the message! Where have Inglewoodians send that ploy before? !

Basically we have learned that USC is more interested in celebrity connected students than fair and equitable admissions standards!!!
What student that studied hard to earn 4.0 grades can possibly think USC embodies the moral character we all believe we want future heads of industry to embrace??
