    Harvard accused of bias against Asian-Americans

    Affirmative action not only persecutes white males but also asians. It is a hate crime and why do we let it continue?


    Harvard accused of bias against Asian-Americans | Fox News

    may 16 2015
    A complaint Friday alleged that Harvard University discriminates against Asian-American applicants by setting a higher bar for admissions than that faced by other groups.

    The complaint, filed by a coalition of 64 organizations, says the university has set quotas to keep the numbers of Asian-American students significantly lower than the quality of their applications merits. It cites third-party academic research on the SAT exam showing that Asian-Americans have to score on average about 140 points higher than white students, 270 points higher than Hispanic students and 450 points higher than African-American students to equal their chances of gaining admission to Harvard. The exam is scored on a 2400-point scale.

    The complaint was filed with the U.S. Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights.

    “Many studies have indicated that Harvard University has been engaged in systemic and continuous discrimination against Asian-Americans during its very subjective ‘Holistic’ college admissions process,” the complaint alleges.

    Yes, this is a hate crime?

    It is often instituted for government and educational settings to ensure that certain designated "minority groups" within a society are able to participate in all provided opportunities including promotional, educational, and training opportunities.[8]

    Welcome to higher education in the US. Whites and Asians are at a disadvantage, all other minorities usually have lower standards, have a positive factor due to their race when weighing admission decisions and oftentimes get free money in the form of race-based scholarships.

    It's absolutely racial discrimination, but this isn't anything new. It's not just Harvard, it's pretty much anywhere.

    And that's why there's a disproportionately high percentage of black people in college.

    And not just in the US, by the way.

    Less may apply, but don't pretend it's alright or not discrimination over the fact that schools set lower standards for certain races and oftentimes have race-based scholarships. It's discrimination and it's wrong. There are schools pretty much devoted to minorities as well.
