    And why the hypocrisy? Why can an American with Chinese ancestry be allowed to actually EARN a Ph.D. in "Asian American Psychology"? Why can a mexican immigrant get a degree in "Hispanic American Studies"? Why can a woman get a degree in "Women's studies?" Negate the fact that some of these fields are useless and no one will get a job with them, and instead consider the racism and sexism inerrant in such fields.

    Why are white males so discriminated against? Wouldn't it be fair for there to be a "Men's studies" field or "Caucasian American Studies" Ph.D. program? I want to get a Ph.D. in a subject where I can simply write about myself (ex. Being an Asian American getting a Ph.D. in Asian American issues) I mean...HOW HARD could that be? I don't understand it. It seems like cheating to get the title of "doctor" reserved only for EVERYONE except white males.

    ON TOP of the fact that say a White Male majoring in "Asian American Studies" would be looked at poorly, and most likely would not be accepted to such a program...seems quite discriminatory.

    its the STUDY of a state of existence, thus if you participate in that specific state of existence then you got an easy track into being called "doctor". Why is this "easy mode" only given to certain race/sexes? I think you should have majored in english.

    Why should anyone be allowed to earn a Ph.D. in anything?

    Are you fucking retarded or something?

    Asian studies is the study of Asia and its culture, politics, history, psychology, and society. Fucking duh. You really aren't very bright.
