Suing to protect your majority?

The headline reads: Supreme Court rejects case alleging discrimination against Asian American students in Virginia. But when you get into the weeds, some things jump out.

So…let me get this right: They were fine as long as Asians got 75% of the spots but when that percentage fell to ‘only’ 54%, they started suing? 🙄

It seems like they’re suing to protect their majority, not to fight discrimination. 🤷🏿‍♀️ The numbers alone are proof against their argument over discrimination. With this allegedly ‘discriminatory'(not) policy in place, they’re still getting more than half of the offers. 🤷🏿‍♀️That isn’t discrimination AGAINST you.

You can’t separate America from it’s history but so many people, whose families are relatively “new” to America, keep trying. This isn’t a homogeneous nation where the only problem is the distribution of wealth.

There were laws, policies, ordinances, and deed restrictions in place for hundreds of years that legalized theft from Black American descendants of slαvery, and mostly excluded us from access to subsidies that went directly to white Americans.

Some of these exclusions were only finally resolved decades later (social security is one such policy) while others were never truly resolved (redlining).

We’re still dealing with the repercussions of these practices and the lack of a slew of positive benefits that came from this govt subsidization.

Every law Black ppl have fought for, to slightly correct for this history, seems to be under attack by wealthier Asians who are already at the top of the food chain in America. 🤷🏿‍♀️
