China has a billion people, India has a billion people. You could fill Harvard every year with only Chinese or only Indians. Some of them must be turned away.

They should maybe open a Harvard+.

Think of all the rich Republicans they let it in Harvard.  Their standards, when you think about it, are kinda low.

Ever notice conservatives never complain about legacy admissions?

But then you'd be admitting only the best and brightest kids born with every advantage and depriving the poor average white kid a shot.

Can anyone tell me an area of life where society doesn't penalize Asian men?

Negative affirmative action in academia. Placed at the bottom of the social totem pole for sexual allure due to widespread stereotypes about...  genetic shortness in stature and length. Almost always represented one of two or three ways in mass media. Name discrimination in your professional career. Etc etc.

Is there any area where Asian dudes are winning? IDK, lowest rate of heart disease or something?

Kinda feel bad for Asian dudes, they're the only people stereotyped and discriminated against more than white dudes.

...and if that's what the lawsuit was about, it's still be bogus. The lawsuit was claiming that "the university is illegally favoring Black and Latinx students at the expense of Asian American ones."

I'm not sure how long, but for the last few years I have been seeing more interest in Asian men displayed in media.  Kpop stars and more depictions of Asian men favorably.

I read something (probably in the WSJ, it's the only print newspaper I read now since I can read it for free at my office) about college selection committees. Holy shiat. The things even colleges that aren't Harvard or Yale do to select people. It's incredibly intricate and involves many, many, many issues that have nothing to do with ethnicity. I can't even list them all, there are so many. They run the gamut from what your declared major is gonna be, what high school you went to, how hard was the high school you went to, is your family affluent or not, what are your extracurriculars, do you have enough of those, what is your life experience. Do they need someone who plays the violin or rugby? etc.

People move onto and then are kicked from the acceptance list for a variety of reasons, most not having anything to do with ethnicity. This shiat takes months. Obviously, ethnicity plays a role at a lot of places but it's not in any way the only or most important metric. Despite what white or Asian students think.

Colleges are more selective now because there are more college students now. They gotta select people somehow. I guess just taking the first X number to apply didn't work or whatever.

we have a large Asian community here in San Diego, also (probably larger) in Orange County to the north. Trust me, they're doing just fine.

WTF you talking about willis? Asian americans have the highest income and less crime per capita than any group of people in the country.

We all know youre jealous of their success compared to your group of inbred incestuous white trash thats at the bottom of the pile and by a long shot. Doing meth and getting your sister pregnant aint winning by any decent standard donald.

A lot of this really does come down to the way that students are pressured into conforming to certain academic and extracurricular roles which supposedly tick off all the boxes for admissions offices. When you get these 'perfect applicants' in droves, the on-campus student body cannot be permitted to becoming a homogenous broth of young adults who have no life experience outside of the carefully prepared paths their parents and college admission agents created for them.

Yes, there are many very smart kids who get turned away during the admissions process, and that's unfortunate for them. But Harvard's mandate isn't to take all the undifferentiated pasteurized cream from the application pile, thank goodness.

So if some underprivileged Latino kid gets in based on his 3.8 high school GPA that succeeded despite a fatherless home or needing to learn English as a second language in 4th grade or getting arrested twice for being mistaken for someone else in his neighborhood, maybe Harvard would like to foster that kid's intelligence and creativity into something that will become a benefit to society at large rather than just another investment banker.

I had an Asian girlfriend, once. The worst part about it, is that she was haunted by one of those ghosts, like the ones you'd see from The Grudge, or The Ring, so every morning I'd wake up to find the floor wet, and notes written in Japanese, in my own hand writing on the night stand. The final straw was when I walked downstairs one night, and saw a ghostly pale child staring at me, saying "wan" over and over again... My girlfriend told me that that was supposed to be the Japanese onomatopoeia for a dog barking, and I assertively told her that most certainly was not.

I bet Don Trump is intimidated by people who went to Harvard and resents the school and wouldn't mind if it was destroyed. Take that, Obama!

Well, it's not like a lot of Asian men have a sister to get pregnant.

I can affirm the Korean group BTS is very popular with women of all races. My bro Takayuki always puts up two fingers and says " Asian men,so small " referencing a South Park episode. Yeah. They can't catch a break.

The ghost WAS the child, dude. I dated a ghost before, tho... But that's a story for a different time.

Perhaps their genetic adaptation of looking at the negative space around the people in a crowd instead of the individual people in the crowd makes their ignoring people over passageways seem antisocial. Go to your local Chinatown if you want to experience it. You are nothing more than an obstacle.

I have a lot of Asian friends, and co-workers, I'm in tech. You want to be an a$$hole to them they're going to reflect it right back at you in a subtle way. Then when they don't have to be subtle... they're not anymore. Amazing thing though, if you're nice to them, why they're pretty nice right back. Amazing thing that, you get what you give.

The new panic out here in SF is that there's a vote to reinstate affirmative action for college admissions in Nov.

Who are the most vocal opponents? I'll give you a hint. They occupy about 40% of Stanford's student body and they ain't whitie.

Asians have great personalities.... they just can't drive for shiate.
