EVERYONE PLEASE. PAY ATTENTION. Especially if you’re Asian.
On January 30th, 2014, California Senate just passed SCA-5, a legislation that would repeal portions of California Proposition 209.
In condensed words, this bill allows schools to DISCRIMINATE AGAINST ASIANS.
To understand SCA…
I gave a speech in my communications class about this exact same issue. I go to a California college and mentioned how our state set a great example with a color blind application process. Apparently things have fucking changed. Non-Asians do not have it harder. Everybody has the same fucking chance at getting in. It just happens to be that many of the most qualified students happen to be Asian and Asian-American. This has absolutely nothing to do with race. It should be about individual ability. It NEEDS to be about individual ability. This is fucking ridiculous. Asian student are not accepted on the fact that they are Asian. The only students who are accepted are the one’s who prove that they have the right to get into such schools, and race has nothing to do with it. It’s fucking childish. “You can’t play with us because you are too good.”
