The Diversity Mania and Discrimination Against Asians

In this week’s Pope Center Clarion Call, Roger Clegg addresses the question of discrimination against Asian students. Of course, selective colleges don’t say, “We’re against those geeky, over-studious Asian kids. Let ‘em go somewhere else.” Rather, they don’t want to have “too many” of them, so as to have enough room for all the “under-represented” groups, whose students are presumed to add so much of interest to the student body. The result is the same: Some excellent students are rejected on account of their ancestry.

George Leef is the the director of editorial content at the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal.
