I’m taking a quick break from my break because of the historic possibility that the Justice Department under Jeff Sessions may be trying to eliminate affirmative action. I don’t remember any administration ever taking this stance. With the chaos of the Trump administration, no one really knows if this inquiry on affirmative action will pan out. But as I said before, I always felt that Trump was the best candidate on race, despite the fact that he’s incompetent in just about every other area. This may be his defining achievement.
Anyway, Asians are finally in the news:
We got a pro-Asian opinion piece from CNN:
We also got a pro-Asian editorial from the Wall Street Journal:
The comments coming from the Social Justice Warriors are rich. “I’m not your wedge!”(to promote equality) “I support diversity!”(of race and identity, not opinion or socio-economic class) “Don’t use me as an argument to fight racism against me!” (Well, they didn’t quite say that.)
I’ve long realized that we’re not going to convince the indoctrinated leftists to give up their religion. I don’t know if Trump/Sessions will win this fight. But I hope that they tear those admissions offices WIDE open. To hell with their secrecy and “holistic” excuses and racism based on stereotypes. I want the Justice Department to question all the decisions they make, to break open those files and force them to explain why all things being equal, an Asian person needs 140 more SAT points than a White person, 270 points more than a Hispanic person, and 450 points more than a Black person for equal consideration. I want them to explain the coincidence of how we Asians seem to be capped at 18% of the class at Harvard, despite the fact that quotas are illegal. Even if we lose, this exercise could and should be educational. Trump has failed in just about everything he has attempted so far, but if we build up support among the population, perhaps the momentum may be enough to carry this forward.
