Do white people want merit-based admissions policies? Depends on who their competition is.
Affirmative action is meant to help minorities who suffered exclusion and discriminatory oppression, yet it helps white women the most largely at the expense of Asians. We’re penalized with a 140 hit (on the sat score) vs whites. That’s huge.
What makes it all the more unjustifiable is that affirmative action is just the latest incarnation of the way Whites move goal posts.
It went something like this (using Chinese coolies as the example), too weak > too stupid > too uncreative > no leadership skills > and now some non-existent “Asian privilege”…
as if Asians are some monolithic group. Each time Asians prove them wrong but it doesn’t matter. What matters is that they will always change the criteria(move goal posts) until they can “win”.
