Expelling Asian Americans from top schools proves NYC education is off the rails

The new numbers came out last week, and they are beyond harsh: Asians won 54 percent of this year’s freshman class seats; whites, 28 percent; Hispanics, 5 percent and African-Americans, 4 percent.

Whereupon Schools Chancellor Meisha Ross Porter demanded an end to test-based admissions — because “It’s far past time for our students to be fairly represented.”

Weird. By her own words, Porter doesn’t consider Asian kids — apparently all 145,000 of them — to be among “our students.” And to her, “fair representation” means quotas. How else to interpret what she said?

The Tribalist Left

Crime statistics underscore how the media distorts reality in presenting white males as inherently dangerous. According to 2018 figures from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 90 percent of interracial violent victimizations (excluding homicide) were committed by African-Americans; 76 percent of the U.S. population is white; 13 percent is black. FBI statistics from 2019 revealed that whites committed 52 percent of hate crimes, while African-Americans committed 24 percent. In New York City, hate crimes against Asians soared in 2020, but only two of the 20 people arrested were white, according to the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism.
In 2018, African-Americans made up 53 percent of known homicide offenders in the U.S. and committed about 60 percent of robberies. But you’ll never read politically inconvenient statistics like these in left-leaning media outlets, leaving Americans with a warped perspective on the supposed threat from violent, bigoted white males.

When the Only Narrative is Race…

It’s interesting to see that this entire narrative about white supremacy, critical race theory, and systemic racism has been pushed by the dominant race in America: Whites.

And to further clarify, it’s the white left that has been pushing this pernicious ideology. What do they stand to benefit from this, and WHY are we even listening to them? According to them, THEY are the source of all our problems. So wouldn’t it also be a logical conclusion that their push for this CRT narrative is something we should reject?

I believe so, but the problem is that this ideology has many benefits to those cast in the victim role. You get sympathy, special treatment, a voice to advance your position, and favor in the public eye. But this is all short term and very superficial because the consequences of CRT is the hidden resentment that nobody sees building up in the group that is cast as the enemy. And when the “enemy” white folks act out and push back against the deliberate degradation and denigration of their personhood, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy that yes, these white folks just can’t accept the new woke world because of their innate racism and built-in white privilege.

This is a perverse genius, actually. You’re never wrong in this situation, and leads to idiotic sayings like this:

Based on this pretzel logic, then I say all the antiracist peddlers are racist based on their action of pushing that racist crap.
