Anti-Asian Bias and the False Premise of Forced Diversity
TheCollegeConservative ^ | 04/30/2012 | Luke Stibbs

In today’s society, conservatives are constantly lectured about fairness. The stereotype that conservatives don’t like minorities and want them to fail is a bit ridiculous.

Now, as most conservatives would argue, we aren’t actually about injustice (who is?); we simply find intrinsic and extrinsic value in merit. Well-rounded, hardworking academics should have a better chance at getting into the top universities. Liberals claim that we need programs like affirmative action to ensure that minority participation isn’t hindered by racial profiling. This is a classic example of the left trying to implement justice and make nothing about race when actually, they are making everything about race.

Not surprisingly, this Affirmative Action policy doesn’t even aid all of the minority groups it supposedly helps. In fact, Affirmative Action policies actively harm people of Asian descent. Schools like UC Berkeley, that are legally bound to ignore race when selecting students, have far more Asian students than they “should” in the minds of liberal diversity hounds. Asians only make up 4.8% of the U.S. Population (as of the 2010 Census), but they represent 46% of the student body at UC Berkeley.

When the world economy collapses (as many predict), will Liberals still be pushing “Affirmative Action,” or will their priorities shift to “every man for themselves?”

Like a drowning man, the more desperate they get, the harder they will work to push everyone else underwater before them.

And so, to facilitate their continued mooching off the social divisions their own policies create, all their policies will become harsher and harsher, right up until it is completely and utterly untenable (i.e. there is nothing left to loot).

To pay attention to liberals regarding how they attempt to define conservatives would make as much sense as listening to a Muslim on world peace.

Anyone so stupid as to ignore all of recorded history regarding the perfect failure rate of liberalism certainly cannot be taken seriously.

Their major problem is they are so ignorant of reality not amount of logic would make any sense to them.

Most of us are know that there are a large number of “traditionally black colleges”, many of which have been around for a very long time and are lawful. And few would object to their existence.

So isn’t it time for there to be a “traditionally Asian college”, catering both to Asians here on student visas, and Asian-Americans discriminated against by “generic race” universities?

Because of the relatively high academic standards of Asian and Asian-American students as a whole, such an institution would rapidly become world class in reputation, especially because it could disregard many of the wasteful and superfluous practices of other institutions and concentrate on academics.

As such, it would almost certainly be an intensely conservative institution as well.

if the current trend holds, our top tier engineering and science schools will be ‘tradionally Asian’ in another 50 or so years.
