[Asian Americans are] a bunch of prestige-obsessed cookie-cutter drones
PS Since Doct0r brought up "Tiger mom" and her stats I would like to add that Deresiewicz goes hard on Amy Chua in his book, his strong opinion is that she has a "shallow, entitled, and abusive view of the world".
@theloniusmonk Apparently this case is a holdover from the Obama justice dept that was filed in 2014 by Asian American students against Harvard. So this is not something new initiated by the Trump justice dept.
"The posting sought volunteers to investigate one administrative complaint filed by a coalition of 64 Asian-American associations in May 2015 that the prior administration left unresolved," spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said. The groups sued Harvard University, saying that school and other Ivy League institutions are using racial quotas to admit students other than high-scoring Asians.
