Liberal racism against Asian-Americans:
https://www.princeton.edu/~tje/file...on Preferences Espenshade Chung June 2005.pdf
...In an earlier article in this journal, Espenshade, Chung, and Walling
(2004) examined the strength of admission preferences for underrepresented
minority students, athletes, and alumni children at three highly selective
private research universities in the United States. Using data from the Na-
tional Study of College Experience on 124,374 applications for admission
during the 1980s and the fall semesters of 1993 and 1997, they found that
elite universities give extra weight in admissions to candidates whose SAT
scores are above 1500, who are African American, and who are student
A smaller, but nevertheless important, preference is extended to
Hispanic and legacy applicants. African-American applicants receive the
equivalent of 230 extra SAT points (on a 1600-point scale), and being
Hispanic is worth an additional 185 SAT points. Other things equal, re-
cruited athletes gain an admission bonus worth 200 points, while the pref-
erence for legacy candidates is worth 160 points. Asian-American applicants
face a loss equivalent to 50 SAT points.
The underrepresented minority advantage is greatest for African-American and Hispanic applicants whose SAT scores are in the 1200–1300 range, and not for applicants near the lower end of the SAT distribution as some have suggested (cf. Dugan et al., 1996)....
And this is just college admissions. Liberals also discriminate against Asians in media, Hollywood, upper level management in corporations, and government.
Liberals are the Nazis. Liberals are the party of the KKK, slavery, and Jim Crow. Liberals can eat a dick.
Bias is replete in college admissions process
There are many reasons that conservatives rallied so strongly around Jeff Sessions in his recent conflict with President Trump. This week, we gained another reason to be glad that he runs the Department of Justice.
The New York Times reported that it obtained a document indicating that DOJ was looking for lawyers who were interested in "investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions." Despite the lack of any racial emphasis whatsoever, the Times described the intent as "redirecting resources" to protect "white applicants."
I'd describe it differently. I'd say the DOJ is enforcing the law. And if you think white applicants would be the prime beneficiary of fair enforcement, you're sadly mistaken. The true victims of affirmative action are our Asian American citizens.
In 2015 and 2016, Asian American groups filed complaints against a number of elite American colleges, and these complaints presented evidence of a truly stunning level of race-based discrimination in higher education. For example, they alleged that Asian Americans have the "lowest acceptance rate for each SAT test-score bracket." To gain admission to college, Asian American students had to score 140 points higher than white students, 270 points higher than Hispanic students, and 450 points higher than black students.
Compounding the problem, the complaints presented strong evidence of prohibited quotas. As the Asian American population expanded, its college-admission rate stagnated - in much the same way that anti-Semitic administrators used to place caps on Jewish students.
At Yale, for example, from 2001 to 2008 the percentage of Asian American students never exceeded 13.80 percent of the student body or dropped below 13.50 percent - an unbelievable almost decade-long fluctuation of only 0.3 percent.
The complaints rightly assail the damage caused by the quotas and the obvious and extreme higher standards applied to Asian American students:
The discriminatory practices by Yale, Brown, Dartmouth, and other Ivy League colleges have caused tremendous harm to students in the Asian American community, including stress/mental health issues; pressure to study more as the bar is raised higher; lack of trust in American institutions; self-identification crises; and fortification of racial barriers.
I served for a time on the admissions committee at Cornell Law School, and there was a crystal-clear racial, ethnic, and ideological hierarchy. Asian students faced the toughest admissions challenge, then white students, then Hispanics; black students had to clear the lowest academic hurdle. In fact, there was discrimination even within ethnic groups. The committee preferred Mexican Americans to Cuban Americans. It preferred Filipino applicants to Chinese.
Moreover, in practice, affirmative action often increases the admissions chances of wealthy black and Hispanic kids over poor Asian Americans and poor whites. White students are dinged for their alleged "privilege," but what privilege do Asian Americans students enjoy? After all, there are still Japanese Americans alive today who spent time in internment camps. The legacy and pain of discrimination is very real, and it's compounded by academic standards that explicitly tell Asian American students that they have to do more and achieve more than anyone else to enjoy the same access to higher education.
How is any of this legal? After all, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of "race, color, and national origin" in federally funded educational institutions. The 14th Amendment establishes that no state can deny any person within its jurisdiction the "equal protection of the laws."
Decades of leftist judicial and regulatory activism have reversed their meanings. The Supreme Court has repeatedly reaffirmed that the 14th Amendment permits the use of race in admissions for the sake of advancing the "compelling state interest" of a properly diverse student body. Left-wing regulators have essentially and improperly rewritten Title VI so that colleges may take the Orwellian step of discriminating to allegedly "end" discrimination.
But these exceptions are supposed to be relatively narrow. Colleges are supposed to reject formulas and quotas. The admissions process is supposed to be "holistic," with race merely one of many factors considered. In practice, quotas exist. In practice, the formulas are clear. In reality, race isn't just one factor in admissions - time and again it's the most important factor.
Kids know it. Parents know it. Admissions officers know it...
