Well, the results came back that I wasn’t one of the 18 qualified for Science Olympiad varsity. Well now we are completely segregated. It is like how blacks were treated before Martin Luther King. There are three social classes in Science Olympiad: The current 8th grade Varsity team, The Junior Varsity who qualify for Varsity next year, and us Junior Varsity who were kicked out. The Rising Varsity gets all of the advantages, they are allowed to do whatever they want, and get to do cool activities too. The old Varsity and us JV who didn’t make it are in another separate room, in which we are harshly segregated. The Varsity get to do whatever they want, use computers, play games, talk loudly, choose their seats. What do we get to do? Nothing! “Study hall”, our coach calls it. That’s just another word for “we aren’t going to let you do anything so get used to it, and oh we’re also going to treat you like you’re less than the other kids in Science Olympiad even though we guaranteed that it wouldn’t be so bad if we didn’t qualify.”
It’s pretty much the coaches rubbing it into our faces that we didn’t make it, and them telling us that we are lesser than the other 36 kids just because they didn’t choose us.
