You ever notice how people that are no longer impacted by affirmative action end up supporting it?
I'm a Native American—a Spokane Indian who grew up in extreme poverty on my tribe's reservation—and I believe in affirmative action...based on economic class. I've been a lifelong liberal—blending leftism and classical liberalism. As an Indian child living in rural America, I knew white kids from failing logging, mining, and timber towns who were just as economically disadvantaged as I was. I'm now a high income white collar writer. It's crazy for anybody to believe that my Native children (my wife/their mother has a graduate degree) are more disadvantaged than a white kid living in poverty anywhere. My kids certainly face certain difficulties and traumas because they're Indian and because they're being raised by Indian parents who've faced difficulties based on race and trauma. But, most basically stated, we live in a capitalist society that often leaves poor people behind, especially poor rural kids of all races. They need affirmative action.
The funny thing about Bobas is the fact they demonstrate every negative stereotype of Asians.
- Compliant followers of authority
- Too timid to question the herd and provide any genuine leadership
- Are obsessed with and covetousness of "Whiteness"
During the 1920s, Walter Lippmann (famous newspaper columnist for those too young to be familiar with) wrote in favor of Jewish quotas at Harvard where he graduated despite being Jewish himself. When you get into a school that sets limits on people like you, your admission there says you're even better than the average person there.
"I did get into Yale, where I am now in my final year, majoring in American studies."
This explains a lot: for someone without exceptional skill or talent or anything original to contribute aka an "American studies" major, the safest path to an elite lifestyle similar to your Ivy League colleagues is to be an aspiring commissar, which means first becoming a true believer and disciple of the Social Justice religion, where there is definitely no god but there is a Satan, the evil white man.
One of the ironies of our time is that to become a member of America's elite class you have to constantly denounce America; another is that people immigrate from all over the world to live and thrive here, only for their children to grow up to hate and execrate the country that gave them sanctuary.
I guess you're not really an American until you embrace radical ingratitude.
