There’s no reason that whites should have a leg up — in effect, affirmative action — on Asians at elite colleges.

    White and Asian students are both screwed - Asian students just more. The people most screwed, Asian and White students from poor backgrounds who don't pick up the 1st Gen hook either.

    Anything that discriminates against white people is discrimination for the greater good. Anything else is just discrimination. Got it now, thanks. Yes we better address this, and quickly.
