Black students and alums of the University of Texas had the prefect response to Justice Antonin Scalia’s offensive remarks during oral arguments of one of the most important cases on the fate of Affirmative Action.

The plaintiff, Abigail Fisher, argued she was denied admission to the university because she’s white and was passed over for minority applicants. While Fisher’s grades and test scores were mediocre (and Black and Latino students with higher grades and scores than Fisher were also denied admission), Scalia argued that perhaps Black students need to attend “slower-track schools” because the University of Texas is just too advanced.

Of course, Scalia’s comments did not sit well with many, including Black students and alumni of UT. After yesterday’s remarks, a comment by one Twitter user sparked the hashtag #StayMadAbby.

The tag quickly took off with UT grads and students sharing photos of their experience at the university. And it was absolutely beautiful.

The hashtag even spread to others who used it as a moment to affirm Black excellence and achievement.

We love it, and we love us!

    Why do white folk believe that black people think black people don’t have the gifts to excel by their own merits? Why do they think Affirmative Action is what got them there and not hard work?

    I’m torn on this. Their accomplishments speak for themselves, but the focus on Abigail Fisher, seems to give Fisher validity, although unintentional. It would be better to just ignore someone with such a complaint.
