Many years ago it was accepted practice for our elite colleges to severely limit the number of Jews admitted. After all, Jews were overachievers, driven by their religion and culture to excel. Admitting “too many” Jews meant that more NON-Jews were being excluded from their “rightful” admission. Eventually this incredibly racist policy was done away with. Well, sorta done away with.
I suspect that you can see where I’m going with this. So can the U.S. Department of Justice. Who are the new “Jews” in America? Asians.
At “ground zero” (and now the bulls-eye) of this obvious but denied discrimination is Harvard University, the proud flagship of our elite Ivy League colleges. After too many years of passive acceptance by Asians, in 2014 a group of these rejected students filed a lawsuit against Harvard and its blatantly racist policies. Here we are towards the end of 2017, and Harvard still refuses to give up the court-required data that will easily verify that this policy exists.
Finally the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has stepped in, demanding in a lawsuit that the University comply with these discovery requests. Still Harvard resists.
To be fair, Harvard is not some outlier exception. Its racist admission policies are TYPICAL of Ivy League schools. And not just Ivy League. Almost ANY American college or university that has significantly more freshman (or graduate school) applicants than it admits usually has a DE FACTO anti-Asian admission policy.
The only difference in this current anti-Asian racist college admission policy is that it ends up reserving admission slots for undeserving blacks and Hispanics, while the Jewish bigotry was used to reserve admission slots primarily for undeserving whites.
Oddly enough, the only state where college admission policies prohibit such racial discrimination is the progressive heaven of California. But it wasn’t the colleges or the politicians who banned such racism. It was done by the people of California via the initiative process. It passed in 1996 with 54.55% of the statewide vote of the California electorate — overcoming ugly, intense liberal opposition.
EXCERPT: Proposition 209 (also known as the California Civil Rights Initiative or CCRI) is a California ballot proposition which, upon approval in November 1996, amended the state constitution to prohibit state governmental institutions from considering race, sex, or ethnicity, specifically in the areas of public employment, public contracting, and public education.
Don’t get me wrong. California still discriminates against Asians and whites. There are a number of ways this is done. But even with these illegal workarounds, Asians constitute about 40% of the UC California university undergraduate admissions. Prop 209 may be the only remaining bulwark against unfettered racist PC policies.
BTW, given today’s far-left tilt of California, if Prop 209 were on the ballot today, it would probably fail. It would be repealed by the Democrats, except for the fact that to do so would alienate the prosperous, Democrat-leaning Asian community (14.8% of the population) — swinging their allegiance dramatically to the GOP.
