1. Why aren’t Asian-Americans considered a minority?
THAT is the $64,000 question !!!
that, is the elephant in the room.
along with the fact that crime rates for Asians,
are lowest of all.
...kind of destroys 99% of the left’s “minority” arguments.
1) The goal is equal outcome, not equal opportunity.
Otherwise, uncomfortable cultural differences are brought into question, and that can not be allowed to happen, as it lays bare the lie.
He's out of date. UT whined and stomped its feet because it's jocks weren't smart enough to get admitted under the Top 10% rule (which became law for all of Texas' public universities because of Hopwood v. UT 1996 when lower scoring minorities were admitted to UT Law over higher ranking whites). In 2009, UT president actually said with a straight face they'd have to close down the football program if they had to follow the law. HAHAHAHAHA! As if UT would EVER not have Longhorn football, SNORT! As a result of that latest steaming pile of bs from the lib tea-sipping treehuggers and a waste of untold tax dollars and legislature time wasted, as of fall semester of 2011, UT has to only admit the Top 8% SAT scoring freshmen while the rest of the state still has to admit the Top 10% meaning UT has more opportunity to admit what they consider deserving students regardless of their SAT scores.
That said, this girl's case was from 2008 when UT was required by law to admit the Top 10% (you are automatically admitted if you graduate in the top 10% of your high school class, if you don't then your application has to compete with everyone else). By law she would have had a tough climb to be admitted to UT. Who knows how the case will go but from what I see, she doesn't have much of a chance:
The above chart shows the 2008 Top 10% admits for their freshman class were: 48% white, <1% Native Amer, 6% black, 20% Asian, 23% Hispanic. The Non-Top 10% were: 65% white, 1% Native American, 5% black, Asian 14%, and 13% Hispanic.
As for the Asians, you can see from the chart there is a huge percent of them at UT. Walk through the music department and you'll not see anyone but Asians. Why the case isn't considering Asians a minority is anyone's guess.
