    Here's to intolerant campus speakers

    Get a load of this guy, speaking at the prestigeous Grinnell College commencement:

    “When I came to Grinnell I was a devout Muslim who had never romantically touched a girl and I was going to get a degree that guaranteed me a job,” Nanjiani said. “By the time I graduated I was basically a Rastafarian with a white American girlfriend and a philosophy degree. College changes you, is my point.”

    He also offered advice on how to take on bigotry, even if it is uncomfortable.

    “We cannot expect others to understand our point of view if we don’t understand theirs,” he said. “It’s uncomfortable and awkward and infuriating and it hurts your brain, but with that pain can come growth and real change."

    The article quotes different things than the short video...it's worth a look.

    I had to sit through a Spike Lee speech at our campus on Native Americans.

    Basically it turned into 2 hours of a rant against white people. Over half the auditorium left it was that bad. I think he mentioned Native Americans like 3 times.

    This speech is nothing like that. This guy is a comedian.
