Jeremy Wilkerson, a Harry Potter enthusiast, was not accepted to The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry last Wednesday on his eleventh birthday. Wilkerson blames affirmative action for this rejection.
“It’s not fair,” said Wilkerson, “The only reason a magic owl didn’t deliver me an acceptance letter is because my spot in the class was taken by some black kid who was probably a worse candidate than me. That’s the only explanation that makes sense.”
“This is reverse racism, and I won’t stand for it,” said Wilkerson. “Applicants are being persecuted just because they’re white. Before long, Hogwarts as we know it won’t even exist. I mean, it’s platform 9 ¾, not platform 9 ⅗.”
When informed that the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a fictitious institution, Wilkerson neglected to provide any additional comments, but his mother reports she could hear his childish sense of magic and whimsy die.
