Was Harvard right to rescind admission over racist comments?

Kyle Kashuv, a survivor of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 people dead, says Harvard University has withdrawn its offer of admission to him after a document and texts were made public in which he repeatedly used the N-word and anti-Semitic statements when he was 16. Kashuv apologized for what he called his "idiotic comments" and said they were made "in an effort to be as extreme and shocking as possible." Kashuv sent a letter of apology to Harvard, but the university still voted to rescind his acceptance. Kashuv’s defenders argue that mistakes made at such a young age should not derail someone's future, especially since he has apologized. Some believe the comments were made public as retaliation for Kashuv's conservative politics. Others have defended Harvard's decision, arguing that the university has a right to keep someone with a public history of racist comments out of its campus community.
