A poll by Pew Research Center revealed that 73% of people are against colleges using race or ethnicity in the admissions process. In 2016, Gallup reported that 70%, including 50% of black people, believe colleges should use merit, not race or ethnicity, when considering college admission.

Despite this, the Biden administration is asking the Supreme Court to reject a case brought to stop anti-Asian discrimination, Students for Fair Admissions v. President and Fellows of Harvard College.

The case was filed by Asian students who claimed Harvard University discriminated against them as a group in admissions. It comes on the heels of Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in which a federal district court ruled that UNC could use race and ethnicity in the admissions process. SFFA is petitioning the Supreme Court to hear both cases.

For an administration that styles itself as a champion of racial equality, the Biden administration sure has no problem punishing Asian students for their hard work. Californians for Equal Rights has been particularly vocal on this subject. So, too, has the Asian American Coalition for Education.

“Neither Harvard nor UNC has identified a ‘compelling’ interest served by its racially discriminatory policy,” Californians for Equal Rights said in a press release. "Others have argued that, even if they had, they have not exhausted workable race-neutral alternatives. In reality, neither the existence of any educational benefits from some undefined ‘critical mass’ of ‘diversity’ of an unspecified sort, nor the necessity of racial balancing to achieve such a ‘critical mass’ is self-evident or legally settled.”

“The high court should hear both the Harvard and UNC cases and reconsider race consciousness in higher education in light of a national societal consensus against racial preferences in public policymaking,” said Wenyuan Wu, an executive for both organizations.

“Enhancing the argument for Supreme Court review of both cases is the undeniable fact that the public has consistently rejected racial preferences in admissions, over three decades of polling data, as well across almost all the ballot initiative history from anywhere in the nation — including, most recently, that from California and Washington,” Californians for Equal Rights said.

Biden and Democrats, unfortunately, are perfectly fine with discrimination against Asian Americans. That's their story, and they are sticking to it.
