A pretty funny disquisition on Charm City's oft-ridiculed "Believe" campaign by Throat Culture, a sketch comedy group straight outta Homewood.
Aside from being created by JHU students, what does this have to do with news and issues in education?

A bunch of white kids who didn't leave the Hopkins campus while making a biased, prejudicial, and uninformed video. The video certainly did succeed in perpetrating stereotypes and embarrassing their distinguished university. Maybe if they took a second to leave campus and invest in the community for an afternoon they'd feel less comfortable making such fools of themselves. I know it was supposed to be tongue and cheek, but it's frustrating that such intellect is wasted.

Yeah, that was pretty annoying.
Unfortunatly, the Hopkins student body (perhaps deservingly?) has a reputation for displaying a elitist, callous, and in some cases, racist attitude towards the problems in Baltimore. As Bill pointed out, this video really just reinforces that stereotype.
