Excerpt: As a freshman, I joined Princeton University Ballet, the student-run club for recreational ballet. Auditions are required for membership, and we perform a show each semester. We have the luxury of practicing in multi-million dollar studios with Steinway pianos. But recently, the club has gained a new feature by adopting a trendy moral initiative: combating systemic racism.
I imagine readers wondering, “Why should I care about a tiny dance club at Princeton?” Today, these might be some random undergraduates, and it is easy to dismiss their activity as naive, inconsequential virtue-signaling. But these students will graduate soon, and they will implement similar demands when they occupy powerful positions at impressive companies and organizations.
