What’s leftists’ problem with Asians?

I understand some Trump voters’ problem with Asians. They are racists.

But what the hell is leftists’ problem with Asians? Almost every tech company I know in Bay Area (except Tesla and few other racist companies) are half white half non-white and have many foreign born engineers. You can never find this kind of diversity elsewhere in any sector in any part of the US. Why are Asians singled out from people of color? Were Asians not discriminated or something? Or just because Asians are politically inferior comparing to blacks?

    Left considers having money as some sort of a sin.

    For some reason the poorer you are the more virtuous you become

      It is easier to feel that way when you live at the parents' basement and most valuable thing you posses is your PhD in gender studies.
      Check your privilege.

      AA based on income makes more sense than color based AA. Whoever think helping black doctors’ children become doctors again is promoting social justice are nuts.

      Unless you’re a poor white male. Left still hates you and thinks a wealthy POC still has less benefits. Complete hypocrisy by the left.

    Leftist couldn't care less whether someone is Asian or Martian. They need poor people to depend on gov for handouts so that gov can bloat and hire their useless liberal arts asses.

      The funny thing: Berkeley's adcom cannot legally use AA to boost diversity. Thus the high percentage of Asian Americans at the uni. Unlike say the Ivies, Stanford, and a lesser extent MIT. Give credit to Caltech for merit based admissions though.

    Asians are the new jews.
    Google "Jewish math problems", this is the original affirmative action from Soviet Russia.
    Nearly all leftist universities discriminate against Asians, explicitly, formally, and without apology. Google the lawsuits against Harvard and MIT for their "Asian maximum". Google the SAT gaps between races of admitted applicants.

    Learn the facts and realize that leftists designate some races as "diversity enablers" and others "diversity detractors". Asians are the latter and this is based only on their race.
    Welcome to the left kampf.

    Finally, some Asian fools tolerate this in attempt to win acceptance by the racists who hate them and built the system of discrimination. Google this too: "Jewish Nazi collaborators".

    Shabat Shalom.

      The DNC are not the “left” - the blue states: sit-lie laws, militarized police, large racist prisons, tax breaks for tech and other industries, cuts to public education while vouchers and charters are supported, etc. The DNC undermines left-wing candidates even in their own party while pushing centrist triangulation.

      Maybe so, but we are talking specifically about discrimination of Asians in universities. this policy is called "affirmative action" by the left and Democrats, they fully agree on this one.
      Mar 3, 2018
    • Credit Karma Johmy
      Not really - the left is critical of the specific way Affirmative Action programs have been administrated by the center - we think it’s a superficial attempt at addressing a much deeper issue. Do we oppose right-wing attempts to remove ethic studies, support for students etc - yes. But ultimately we think that rebuilding a robust public ed system, more slots and free university, are the ways to begin to undermine the racial and class inequalities that have increased for 40 years.

      What privilege? Before (Chinese exclusion act, Asiatic barred zone, Japanese American concentration camps) or now (discrimination in education like Harvard, discrimination in employment like Google, 150 years green card wait time for Indians)?

      How would you explain that google has so many Asians? Are you saying that they got in because they had good education, good grades and study hard?? Are you saying they didn’t screw other PoC from getting the job?

      The answer is, in a fair game, google would have more Asian. and how much did sundar pichai’s parents make? I bet the number is nothing compare to the parents of the girl who works in Starbucks next to your apartment. he must have screwed her life. What a privilege!

    Why call Trump supporters racist when you just used the term "colored"?

      I'm pretty sure both you and OP aren't even American if you think colored is not perceived as racist

      Fixed. I am sorry if I offend anyone. I use it because it’s shorter than “non-white”. 🙂

    Democrats only care about votes. Asians are the true minority of this country and why do they care?

    Because the liberal narrative is that the whites put down all other races. Except the evidence shows that Asians on average make more than white people. It kind of disproves their whole argument.

    You want to know how a true non-AA org or school would look like? Look at NYU Stern. 70% Asians in most years. Admissions is solely related to grades and CV and they ignore race. That’s what would happen to many top companies if they don’t discriminate under the books.

      California law forbids public universities to admit students based on ethnicity. Of course Democrats have tried so many years to abolish this, but they haven’t succeeded yet. They usually have 40% Asian, 50% White and Hispanic, and less than 10% others. But I think they still have athletes program (remember the Stanford rapist who got rich parents and the UCLA basketball players who stole in Chinese store? ) to favor the non-Asian groups which doesn’t make much sense for business schools.

      They call it "diversity" and make it legal. It's legal to admit based on diversity, which means race, as long as we don't call it this way.

    Your post is too confusing. Asians can also be people of color. What exactly are you trying to say? And what has the leftists done to Asians?

      Is "white" a color?

      Scientifically? No, it is a lack of color.

    Can you define Asian? Correct me if I’m wrong, but that covers a broad amount of people (Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, etc).

      Why does it matter? Even if Google hire one thousand people from Bhutan, they would still complain about lack of diversity.
