So an Asian man obtains a perfect score on the SAT and can't get into the Prog havens of upper academia in places like Yale?
It's nothing new, try finding a famous actor in Hollywood that is Asian, unless they are a stereotypical kung Fu guy you can't.
Pro ...[text shortened]... e they are hard working and resourceful. They have no role to play in the growing welfare state
In the USA, anti-Asian racism seems even worse among 'conservatives' than 'liberals'.
It tends to be ignored, condoned, or even approved because Asian-Americans are extremely politically weak.
I already have posted this:
Harvard University's (biased or corrupt) admissions policy already has been denounced,
including by Asian-Americans who believe that it's covertly racist against them.
Here's an article by Ron Unz, a conservative white American Jew who graduated from Harvard:
"The Myth of American Meritocracy:
How corrupt are Ivy League admissions?"
Ron Unz has a long analysis of racial discrimination against students of Asian heritage.
He also concludes that Harvard today (unlike in the past) gives preferential treatment to Jewish applicants.
As I recall, he once estimated that about 25% of Harvard's students are Jewish, but if Harvard
admitted students only according to academic merit, only about 6% of its students would be Jewish.
For whatever it's worth, Ash wrote this to me in response to my posts:
"Yes I agree with you. Americans don't want their universities dominated by Asians,
who in general are more academically deserving of the places, so they try to change the
acceptance rules to include things that have nothing to do with academics to discriminate
One of my closest friends, who comes from one of the wealthiest families in south africa,
applied and was accepted into Columbia purely off being an excellent student with a
95 percent average and 100 percent for maths, but revealed to me something disturbing.
His mother, the CEO of one of the largest investment management companies in africa,
was recently invited to be on the board of Harvard's africa committee.
Harvard is one of the wealthiest universities in the world, but much of the money meant
for scholarships is actually untouchable because the people who donated it left specific
criteria for how it should be spent, usually that they were white middle class Americans.
He revealed to me that without disclosing his marks to the university, they offered his
mother a place for him, simply for the possibility that she would donate to them."
