The most complete documentation of UGLY
discrimination against Asian
Here is a complete account of the ugly discrimination against
youngsters by elite colleges, including a number of NEW discoveries.
colleges are using the nobility of diversity as a cover to give an illegal advantage to white applicants over AsAms, thereby imposing an illegal
quota on the number of AsAm students admitted. Read item 2) carefully.
1) DISCRIMINATION at the Graduate School Entrance Level:
The following table
published by the Am. Assoc. of Medical Colleges (AAMC). The info in the first 10 columns shows that the
acceptance rate for AsAm applicants is always the lowest
different combinations of compa
rable MCAT score & GPA, lower even than their white peers. The info.
last 2 columns on
the right show that the average AsAm MCATs score is the HIGHEST
among all races, and yet they are accepted at the
among all races.
The bar chart below, based on the info shown in the above table, illustrates the glaring
differences in admission rates.
The desire for diversity and the intent of the Affirmative Action Program causes the higher acceptance rate of Hispanic & Black
applicants with comparable academic achievements, which most AsAms understand and embrace. However, why are AsAms given a
lower acceptance rate than white peers?
Isn't that the REVERSE of Affirmative Action?
2) DISCRIMINATION at the College Entrance Level:
In Table 3.5 on p 92 of Princeton Prof. Espenshade's famous
, "No Longer Separate, Not Yet Equal", the following shocking
fact was revealed:
Table 3.5 (emphasis added)
at Public & Private
Measured in ACT & SAT Points, Fall 1997
Public Institutions Private Institutions
ACT-Point Equivalents SAT-Point Equivalents
Item (out of 36) (out of 1600)
(White) -- --
Black 3.8 310
Hispanics 0.3 130
For the sake of diversity,
we do embrace the idea of granting extra points to the ACT & SAT scores of blacks and Hispanics -- we would add even more, if needed.
140 SAT pts. taken away from AsAm
applicants? To give the white applicants an advantage of 140 SAT pts.
over the historically disadvantaged AsAms by using the nobility of diversity
as a cover
? This is the reverse of affirmative action. This is a gross abuse of affirmation action. This is outrageous discrimination.
We estimate that the AsAm admits into the Ivy Leagues colleges would be about 25%, not 18%, if AsAms were not deceitfully forced to yield 140 pts to
DISCRIMINATION - a cabal to impose ILLEGAL quota on AsAms?
The black dotted line s
hows that the number of college aged AsAms in our population has approximately doubled over a recent 20 year period.
The red solid line indicates the % of AsAm students at the California Institute of Technology where "race preference" admission is not permitted, tracks that increase.
In strong contrast, the Ivy League colleges converge to 16% +/- 3% AsAms students..
It smells of an Ivy League cabal against AsAm students.
4) Cowardly DISCRIMINATION against the weak & disorganized:
Some may say AsAms are only 6% of the national population, 16 +/- 3% is already
too many. Really? Are they advocating a quota, which the Supreme Court ruled as illegal? America's ideal is meritocracy.
Americans comprise only 2 % of the national population. Look at the % of their youngsters in the Ivies, as
by The Jerusalem Post in 2015.
Yale: 27% (1,500 Jewish undergrads out of 5,477 total),
Harvard: 25% (1,675 out of 6,694 undergrads),
Cornell: 21% (3000 out of 14315), and
Columbia: 35% (3000 out of 8,613).
Further internet research reveals the
Princeton, Dartmouth and Brown: 13% to 20%
Nay, the Ivies have only courage to step on those whom they see as weak and unorganized. It is cowardly discrimination.
5) Harvard's "Holistic Evaluation" is a Charade. The White House Commi-
ssion on Presidential Scholars tells annually that AsAms are not Nerdy:
Harvard has never defined its "holistic evaluation." It fought tooth and nail to
keep its admissions records secret. What is Harvard afraid of? How about
practicing the transparency, which Harvard preaches to its students and the
rest of the nation so frequently?
Fortunately, another group also performs a holistic evaluation of high school graduates annually. The esteemed "White House Commission on Presidential Scholars" evaluates
all high school graduates
achievement, personal characteristics, leadership,
service, and other
extracurricular activities, and an analysis of their essays."
The Presidential Scholars Award Program, where clearly defined holistic evaluation is used, has named AsAms to 28% of their finalists spots
averaged over the last 15 years. Over that same period, AsAms have made
up only 18% of Harvard's admissions.
Shame on you, Harvard. Your holistic evaluation is a charade in order to
place a quota on AsAm students, just as you did against Jewish students decades ago.
3 Supreme Court Justices also saw
Supreme Court Justices
J. Alito, John Roberts and
Clarence Thomas stated in their
issued on June 23, 2016 (pp 22 -27):
"... discriminates against Asian American students...including racial
discrimination that undeniably harms Asian Ams ... the court's willingness to allow this discrimination against individuals of Asian descent is particularly troubling, in light of the long history of discrimination against Asian Americans, especially in education ... In particular, the Fifth Circuit's willful blindness to Asian-American students is absolutely
shameless." (emphasis added)
7) How 80-20 EF Sees Things:
On Ivy League colleges: These institutions are superior in numerous ways. However, they have committed discrimination against AsAm students, and have practiced hypocrisy and deceitfulness with their decision to favor white students over
peers. It is a very shortsighted policy, possibly induced by racism and self-conceit.
History will not be kind to the presidents of these colleges, who participated
in this apparent cabal.
On AsAm community: Our community is definitely at fault as well. We have the average educational level and financial strength to understand the
seriousness of this discrimination against our children.
We have the
responsibility to urgently put our assets together to fight against it.
But we have not been able to get our act together yet.
History will not be kind to us, and will possibly be
harsh on those families who donated tens and hundreds of million dollars to
get a Harvard building named after themselves. Those ignorant and vain acts will be seen as marks of shame on those families.
