Finding pictures of Asian nerds to illustrate this post was easy. Trying to find pictures of Hispanic, black, and white female nerds was not so easy. There simply aren’t very many Hispanics or blacks who fit the nerd profile.
White female nerds were represented by outtakes from porn shoots, or so it seemed as I did my research. The white girl sexy nerd is the image that society has adopted of bright young white females. It’s stupid. And it’s destructive.
White college-bound students are not mentioned in this story about race and college admissions. But I think we know that Asians are not the only ones penalized for their good study habits and intelligence.
It’s time to overthrow affirmative action in college admissions. It’s time to tell more blacks and Hispanics: “You’re just not college material.”
In order to accommodate some of the nonwhite dummies admitted, university grades have been inflated and course content dumbed down.
But egalitarians don’t want us to talk about any of this.
F*ck them, and f*ck university administrators who have denied bright young white students from entering the best colleges and universities.
In a windowless classroom at an Arcadia tutoring center, parents crammed into child-sized desks and dug through their pockets and purses for pens as Ann Lee launches a PowerPoint presentation.
Her primer on college admissions begins with the basics: application deadlines, the relative virtues of the SAT versus the ACT and how many Advanced Placement tests to take.
Then she eases into a potentially incendiary topic — one that many counselors like her have learned they cannot avoid.
“Let’s talk about Asians,” she says.
Lee’s next slide shows three columns of numbers from a Princeton University study that tried to measure how race and ethnicity affect admissions by using SAT scores as a benchmark. It uses the term “bonus” to describe how many extra SAT points an applicant’s race is worth. She points to the first column.
African Americans received a “bonus” of 230 points, Lee says. Asian Americans would lose out under affirmative action Asian Americans would lose out under affirmative action
She points to the second column.
“Hispanics received a bonus of 185 points.”
The last column draws gasps.
Asian Americans, Lee says, are penalized by 50 points — in other words, they had to do that much better to win admission.
“Do Asians need higher test scores? Is it harder for Asians to get into college? The answer is yes,” Lee says.
