Harvard University’s affirmative action policies, which the school says are aimed at achieving diversity on the vaunted campus of Cambridge, discriminate against Asians who often can’t get in despite having higher test scores and grade-point averages than black and Hispanic students who are accepted, according to a lawsuit filed Monday.
Edward Blum, who runs the Project on Fair Representation, which filed the suit on behalf of Asian students who were rejected by the school, said it is a clear case of favoring certain racial groups over others.
“Quotas and racial balancing are strictly against the law,” said Blum, whose group sued the University of Texas on behalf of a white applicant over its affirmative action admissions policies in a case that went to the U.S. Supreme Court last year.
In the Texas case, the high court reversed a lower court’s ruling in that case and remanded it with orders to apply the standard of strict scrutiny to the school’s race-conscious admissions policy. That decision is pending, but the Harvard case is different because it focuses on affirmative action’s negative impact on a minority group.

It was one sentence in a letter sent home from Smith Elementary School in Hampton that took parent Cheriss Pasini by surprise, stating “White Students” didn’t meet last year’s reading requirements on the SOLs.
“The kids brought it home. My boyfriend was like, ‘Wait a minute. White kids? White students?’ I was like ‘What wait?’ I have never seen anything like that before in my life.
A school spokesperson explained the email by saying, “Hampton City Schools follows federal guidelines that specify that parents must be notified of the school’s identification as a Title I school that has missed one or more annual measurable objectives. The two specific objectives were ones that were not met by Smith Elementary.”
“What are they teaching the kids in school? Are they segregating them? Whites? Blacks? I just didn`t like it one bit,” Pasini said. “I understand it’s done by the federal whatever, I just wish there was a better way to word it moving forward.”

The Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus said Democrats got walloped in the midterm elections because white Southern voters are racists.
“We lost because of ideological differences within the Democratic Party and with our Administration. We lost because our party has, to some extent, lost white Southerners due in part to the race of our President,” Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH) said, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
As the Plain Dealer noted, Republicans received 10 percent of the black vote in 2014 compared to the six percent that Mitt Romney received in 2012. It was the best showing among black voters for the GOP since Republicans received 11 percent of the black vote nationwide in 2006.
Southerners, and perhaps black voters, disapproved of President Barack Obama’s plans for his plans to enact a massive executive amnesty. Exit polling found that 75% of voters in the midterms opposed Obama’s executive amnesty. A plurality of voters in pre-election polls said they would be less likely to support candidates who favored giving a pathway to citizenship to all of the country’s illegal immigrants, and every Democrat who was up for reelection voted for the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” comprehensive amnesty bill that would have done just that.

Broadening its push to improve police relations with minorities, the Justice Department has enlisted a team of criminal justice researchers to study racial bias in law enforcement in five American cities and recommend strategies to address the problem nationally, Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday.
The police shooting last month of an unarmed black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri underscored the need for the long-planned initiative, Holder said in an interview with The Associated Press.
He said the three-year project could be a “silver lining” if it helps ease racial tensions and “pockets of distrust that show up between law enforcement and the communities that they serve.”
Yes, this is the same Eric Holder who still refuses to prosecute glaring examples of Back against white hate crimes.
