The same study showed the Asian American applicants needed to score significantly higher on the SATs to gain admittance: 140 points higher than whites, 270 points higher than Hispanics, and 450 points higher than blacks.Of course, all of this affirmative discrimination is done in the name of diversity, to make sure that Asian Americans are not “overrepresented” relative to their numbers in the national population.As Nagai points out, “certain elite schools will only admit some Asian American applicants, but not too many. And indeed, not as many as their academic achievements would suggest.”Trump, the man widely berated as a racist occupying the White House, could have never concocted or perpetrated anything remotely as complicated and sordid as the racist admissions systems in place at our nation’s top universities.Not surprisingly, his politically incorrect and intemperate remarks on race have been considered an affront to the racist paradigm carefully constructed by these elite institutions and defended by the graduates they churn out.But the noise surrounding Trump’s so-called racism cannot drown out the injustice committed by the real racists. Currently, Harvard is being sued for discriminating against Asian American students, while the Justice Department is conducting an investigation into the school’s possible discriminatory practices.Let us hope the lawsuit and the DOJ investigation are enough to spur Harvard and other elite universities to admit their racism and end their discriminatory policies.
In court papers, Arlington, Virginia-based Students for Fair Admissions said an Asian-American male applicant with a 25 percent chance of admission would have a 35 percent chance if he was white, 75 percent if he were Hispanic and a 95 percent chance if he were black.
The solution is to deny federal funding - including research grants - to racist, anti-merit institutions.
Yes, and this is actually federal law: no institution which discriminates on race may receive federal funding.
I have a hunch that in the future, the platinum card ivy league ticket won't be worth that much as the tokens infiltrate the work force and everybody who encounters them go WTF, this is Yale, Harvard, Stanford etc.? unless they are the traditional drooling scions.
