Affirmative Action FOR Chinese

It is well known, at least by close followers of the affirmative action debate, that Asian-Americans are the primary victims of racial preferences in admission received by blacks and Hispanics. But now a large major public American research university has made a concerted effort to recruit Chinese freshmen, in China, and has been so successful that this year 10% of its freshman class is Chinese.

“Diversity” is widely justified as necessary to help us compete in the new global marketplace. Apparently it now also includes helping our competitors compete with us, as I argue in a discussion of this issue on Minding The Campus yesterday, here.

Say What?
