jim yong kim takes office as dartmouth president

Yesterday, Jim Yong Kim officially stepped in as the 17th president of Dartmouth College, becoming the first Asian American president of an Ivy League school: Historic Day for Jim Yong Kim and Asian-Americans.

He publicly addressed students, alumni, faculty, staff and other members of the Dartmouth community who had gathered to welcome Kim for his first day on the job: Kim addresses Dartmouth community on Green.

If you recall, when it was announced earlier this year that Kim would be taking office as Dartmouth's president, it didn't take long for idiot folks to respond with racist emails and ignorant remarks. But now he's President. What now, fools? (Thanks, Khee.)
