Discrimination against Asians in University admissions

Post by cassowary » Sat Jun 09, 2018 11:25 pm

The Balancing Game
The judge in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard University has set a trial date of October 15. SFFA is the student group alleging—it filed its complaint more than three years ago—that the university discriminates in admissions against Asian-American applicants. Most observers expect the case will go to the Supreme Court, not least because of the question it asks: Why are Asian-American applicants to Harvard and other elite schools less likely to be admitted than less academically qualified whites, blacks, and Hispanics?

It's no different from how they used to discriminate against Jews. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose....

I must remind my black liberal Friend who is always reflexively complaining about discrimination. The only groups facing institutional discrimination are Asians and whites.

Well, until you look at police brutality statistics.

That is due to black people disproportionately commit more crimes.

Spoken like someone who lives half an orbit from here.

No, it's not. It's due to the increasingly militarised "shoot first, maybe ask questions later" police culture in this country. Even black Americans who are not committing crimes here (i.e., most of them) fear police, and for cause. Compare with, say, the UK, which is hardly a land without crime and yet police do their jobs without bloodshed.

Yes, it is. Statistics show that half of murders are committed by blacks. So you can’t blame police for being cautious of blacks. Don’t forget their lives are on the line. A moment’s hesitation and ntheir lives are dead. A lot of the fear blacks have have been drummed up by the left. They want to keep black people in a perpetual state of fear and anger.
