Asians Penalized 50 Points On SAT – Black Students Given 230 Bonus Points…

Don’t let your jaw drop too far, this fundamental change is not just happening in college application processes.  This exact same methodology is also being applied to Credit Scores for home mortgages and car loans.

black brunch(Via LA TIMES) In a windowless classroom at an Arcadia tutoring center, parents crammed into child-sized desks and dug through their pockets and purses for pens as Ann Lee launches a PowerPoint presentation.

Her primer on college admissions begins with the basics: application deadlines, the relative virtues of the SAT versus the ACT and how many Advanced Placement tests to take.

Then she eases into a potentially incendiary topic — one that many counselors like her have learned they cannot avoid.

“Let’s talk about Asians,” she says.

Lee’s next slide shows three columns of numbers from a Princeton University study that tried to measure how race and ethnicity affect admissions by using SAT scores as a benchmark. It uses the term “bonus” to describe how many extra SAT points an applicant’s race is worth. She points to the first column.

African Americans received a “bonus” of 230 points, Lee says.

She points to the second column.

“Hispanics received a bonus of 185 points.”

The last column draws gasps.

Asian Americans, Lee says, are penalized by 50 points — in other words, they had to do that much better to win admission.

“Do Asians need higher test scores? Is it harder for Asians to get into college? The answer is yes,” Lee says.

“Zenme keyi,” one mother hisses in Chinese. How can this be possible?[…]

Lee is the co-founder of HS2 Academy, a college prep business that assumes that racial bias is a fact of college admissions and counsels students accordingly. At 10 centers across the state, the academy’s counselors teach countermeasures to Asian American applicants. The goal, Lee says, is to help prospective college students avoid coming off like another “cookie-cutter Asian.”

“Everyone is in orchestra and plays piano,” Lee says. “Everyone plays tennis. Everyone wants to be a doctor, and write about immigrating to America. You can’t get in with these cliche applications.”[…]

Complaints about bias in college admissions have persisted since at least the 1920s, when a Harvard University president tried to cap the number of Jewish students. In November, a group called Students for Fair Admissions filed a suit against Harvard University for admissions policies that allegedly discriminate against Asian Americans. The group cited the 2004 Princeton study and other sources that offer statistics about Asian Americans’ test performance. (read more)

    Hey, Hillsdale College doesn’t have race-based quotas or bonus points. Students enrolled there graduate with one of the best educations in the world. AND they get to learn to THINK critically.

    Asians should boycott all universities which racially discriminate, and any Asian alumni should withhold endowment monies which might be in process. Such universities would then be able to watch their ratings plummet and have the pleasure of graduating stupid students.

    “Diversity” policies are one more way the left wins the battle to keep people cynical about each other, and the whining grievance industries in business.

    Students of Asian descent are punished for the fact that many of them were raised to work very hard and to do well in school – they have 50 points DEDUCTED from their SAT scores because of their ethnicity. Where are all the civil rights advocates who should be raging against this blatant discrimination against minority students? (Yes, it is a rhetorical question – we all know by now that nobody GAF about discrimination against people who aren’t black, muslim, hispanic, or non-heterosexual.)

    And does anyone wonder why the osquatters are the way they are? Why so many blacks and now other minorities feel so ‘special’? Blacks are indeed a special coloured snow flake especially since the days of LBJ and his ‘Great Society’ was foistered upon this once great Republic.

    And progressives have the nerve to talk about our so called white privilege and try to make me, you feel guilty? I think not.

    How much are liberal policies responsible for keeping blacks on the plantation and needing ‘bonus points’ not only here but in just about everything from birth it seems.

    Asians, not European ‘Asians’ will take care of this with doing what they do best, succeeding by virtue of hard work, extra such efforts.

    Hillsdale College is an excellent example of how a school can be an excellent learning institution without gov’t meddling, quotas and if I remember correctly, Hillsdale does ascribe to the student loan debacle either. They offer or refer student to other loan options. If I had to do college all over again I would attend Hillsdale for sure.

    It could get interesting if some people decided to get practical and use makeup judiciously along with fake identities.
    This could potentially have two results; one would be to get firsthand experience of what it’s like to be considered African-American. This could be educational in itself.
    The second result might be to thwart the race-based school admissions offices. I already know a couple of families who use “Hispanic” identities when it’s advantageous (and it’s a joke, none of them speak Spanish, and the Tejano forebears were generations ago). I foresee a planeload of “Chino” fake Hispanics coming down the pike. Why not, if it’s worth thousands in scholarship money? Not ethical, but the whole damned practice is twisted and unethical from the get-go.

    You could always do what Louisiana did – establish a dual college system. One set of colleges/universities is largely for black students (many of whom cannot meet the regular scholastic requirements) and one for everyone else. The two systems have separate state-level administrative systems and one local branch of Southern university (SUNO) has garnered national acclaim. OK, so it’s listed by at least one independent rating system as THE worst university in the US, largely upon its dismal 4 and 6 years graduation rates. Yes it did try to pay students with high(er) SATs to attend at one time and yes it had such a horrific student loan default rate that the state basically tried to keep it secret. Them again, it does have some new buildings and a nice lawn.
    I can’t be sure if there are any Asian students there – they may have pictures of some from out of town who stopped asked for directions to Tulane or Loyola. They did have an empty lot they’d labeled as a hi-tech park and did try to lure a USDA facility there but after the area flooded eight or more feet during Katrina it appears that idea faded.
    Budget cuts are forcing SUNO to possibly be joined with University of New Orleans (UNO) just a wee bit up the road – a university with higher entry requirements and Asian students on campus – much to the consternation of both schools. Peel back the academia-enforced blathering about the possible melding and you see SUNO worried that entry and academic performance standards will be (shudder) increased while UNO worries just the opposite. The academic and admin staffs are having dumpsters delivered to dispose of the mountains of doublespeak from all concerned – how to be honest and open without being honest and open is proving bothersome to many lotus eaters.
    Then again we do have that Obama-scheme of free community college, and we do have one of those. Now if we can just get them to waive that pesky high school diploma thingie…

      That pesky high school diploma can be a real farce. I spent many weeks tutoring a teen high school graduate who could not read. Poor kid wanted to become a veterinary assistant, and while he did have a high school diploma, but he didn’t know the sounds of all the letters of the alphabet with any certainty and therefore could not read instructional materials. This was at age 19 after 12 years of being seated in schools 9-10 months out of the year at considerable taxpayer expense (and time investment, on his part).
      The Bible has an injunction against worshipping false idols. Over the centuries, iconoclasts have taken this as an instruction to hammer stone sculptures to pieces. Our degraded culture seems to struggle, en masse, to notice the difference between useful symbols/representations, and reality.

            That’s the new pedagogy: handwriting doesn’t get taught because everything is done on keyboard. You’re not even supposed to have hard copies of those — it’s all supposed to be done electronically. The schools love it because it saves on paper and printer ink. Some of the teachers are not happy with this, but others just love it because they don’t have to write anything down — guess which group are considered the better teachers.
            You can download copybook writing worksheets still — I would suggest making a booklet of them and copies.

            There have been studies that show that the physical act of reading stock print books and handwriting actually aids in the acquisition of knowledge/literacy…but nobody brings them up anymore and nobody is encouraged to write academic papers about that (you are encouraged to write papers and give symposiums on using technology however).

    Wow. A 230 point bonus? 185 points? Does this not go back to affirmative action setting kids up for failure? If someone needs a 20+% bump in scores to qualify to go to the school, are they going to be getting the same consideration on the grades when they can’t keep up?
    Asians should not be docked points, either. That is BS. Well, I guess what is BS is maybe the lack of dicipline and motivation on all of the other kids (& parents?). I work and my husband stays home with our children. They are still in elementary school, make all “A’s”, and answer with “yes, sir” and “no, ma’am”. It horrifies me when he tells me about other children yelling and being disrespectful before class IN FRONT OF THE PARENTS!! But, said parents are staring at a smartphone, and seem clueless.
    I have learned a lot. “No Child Left Behind” means the class moves at the pace of the slowest student. When I first heard about that, the whole idea was wonderful, because I never really THOUGHT about it until I had kids in school. ID10t(me).

      It makes sense. You can’t put a kid into an environment where all his classmates score 200 to 300 points higher and not expect problems. No wonder these kids self-segregate and then drop out.

      Right before NCLB, the old three tier system of slow/regular/gifted programs in the elementary schools was done away with. I think this was more of a cost saving device than anything — you didn’t need extra teachers, which we had a shortage of at that time at least here, and the state’s could keep their ridiculous licensing standards that basically create a situation where a college level instructor with a master’s or even PhD cannot be hired but a C average undergrad who took poster laminating 101 can.
      Of course the gifted students blew the doors off the slow kids…and it was becoming painfully apparent.
      Also, the main features of NCLB were for the mentally disabled kids — it was originally put into place to make the school districts all expend at least a minimum effort in teaching them; it was never about non-disabled students in the regular classroom, but that’s where it went. And to further make it worse, it started the trend towards mainstreaming handicapped children into the now all combined regular classrooms (again, I think it had to do with money…it was never about the kids). There have been some successful efforts in some districts to create special schools for the handicapped, where those who can never be mainstreamed can stay and those who could possibly handle some mainstreaming can be prepared for it.
      As for the regular classrooms, while some of the teachers and administration have spoken of wanting to go back to the old system of slow/regular/gifted (maybe just rename them so no precious feelings get hurt), this is not supported by the teaching colleges or the unions in league with other teachers and administrators, and it certainly would be poison on the legislation side.
      And of course the public schools are tied at the hip with the teaching colleges, the union, and government insofar as the teacher licensure is on the table….it’s a great big money making Ponzi scheme.
      I suggest supplementing your children’s education or sending them to a (good) private school (watch out for homeschooling, some of the materials available are no better than the public schools and the school systems are finding ways to discourage it anyway; charter schools can be a mixed bag…they have to be accredited, where do you think many get their teachers from? their materials?). Shop around before you buy;)

    I’ll offer a different perspective. My boys are currently in the college application process. I also have been conducting Alumni interviews with local International Baccalaureate students (now mostly Chinese and east Asian) for my alma mater.

    Notice in the article that the Asian families are in a meeting with a “consultant”. The Asian’s figure out the important measurement – in this case it was SAT – and myopically focus to optimize. They start taking the test in grade 8, and take it 20 times (if necessary) until they get perfect scores. My retired neighbor who worked in Admissions, told me they could fill the school with Asian girls getting 800s (perfect score) on the SAT on the tennis team. Admission consultants used to tell them to do an extracurricular activity – girls played tennis, boys played JV soccer. The colleges have to pick from among well coached, disciplined and practiced students who’s applications all look alike. Authentic kids and learners? Not so much. The SAT is only one indicator. It is tougher to get in now as an Asian and Indian student – when you are building a “diverse” class of students. My last interview was a Chinese boy who told me he would rather be a florist, but his parents told him he had to get into an Ivy League college or he would be cut off from financial support. His mother was waiting for him in the parking lot to speak to me. (interview is just with the student). Tiger Moms that decide everything for their kids. I have no sympathy.

    White Guilt admissions officers now – OPENLY – want white students with a “back story” – meaning they are the victims of bullying or are gay or “gender confused”. One of only two questions on the Duke application asks the student this directly – are you part of a group – LGBT??! Having a sick or deceased parent helps. Internships earned in white collar jobs are discouraged for white kids (“they will just think your daddy got it for you”), but celebrated for minorities. If you get great SATs as a white kid, they think you paid for tutoring (we didn’t).

    If you watched the “Child Genius” competition on Lifetime you could see this learning difference. The Asian and Indian child contestants have “systems” for memorizing – and pushy, controlling parents. The one white boy who made it to the finals is just really smart with the love and support of his astonished – very Christian! – parents.

      It’s called the “poor, poor, pitiful me” admissions essay. I have a relative who was turned down at Stanford because he is White. Another relative, an Englishman suggested the boy apply to a UK uni. He did and is now a student at cCambridge University, far more prestigious than Stanford. Cambridge costs about 1/4 what Stanford does. My sister’s kids are in Canadian colleges, no discrimination against Whites and far cheaper because of the exchange rates.

      The only thing left for Whites is to just check the magic box on the application. The magic box ensures not just early admission and full scholarships,; but letters from numerous employers begging one to work for them a year before graduation.

      What ‘s the magic box? African American.!!!!!!!!!!

    If you are Asian, handicap your alumni dollars and tell them why.

    What happens when these special snow flakes get into the workforce? They melt because they can’t compete against a person who was raised to be respectful and a hard worker. But who gets fired? The hard worker gets the boot. While the hard worker focused on the job, the underachiever felt slighted and didn’t know how to work harder and complained about the hard worker. In a “Right to Work State”, no reason needs to be given for termination. After the fact, the boss realizes special snowflake is useless and promotes them out of worker bee status because the person can’t perform.

  38. The irony is, of course, that stacking the deck in this way doesn’t ultimately help blacks. Business managers see the difference in potential employees during interviews. Or, failing that, they see how employees conduct themselves. And this is how managers start to build assumptions based on the patterns they see. And so, the perception becomes that some college graduates are not as accomplished as others.

    This is no different than the attempts to claim that “free” college for everyone will somehow improve someone’s future job acquisitions.

      Firing incompetent blacks just ensures massive fines from state and federal agencies like EEOC and FEPC plus multi million dollar lawsuits from the black civil rights irganizations.

      Another thing is that about 90 percent of blacks who work work either for govt agencies, quasi govt like public schools and hospitals and non profits. A friend is an accountant for a big firm. He ifs the accountant for several major non profits lime United Way and Red Cross. He says the book keepers, accountants and CFO s are all black women who don ‘t know what they are doing and can’t learn.

      Basically these black affirmative action women just lounge around all day gossiping, eating and taking 3hour lunches. Then their employers have to hire my friend’s company to come in every 2 months and do the work.

      I fail to understand why Whites who are subject to college admission far, far worse than Asians are so sympathetic to anti Asian discrimination. Asians and Indians have replaced White Americans in every Dr, nurse, med tech, engineering, computer and math job around. As I mentioned I Used to work at UCLA, the medical center actually. This is what the medical school classes consist of 50 percent women, almost all Asians, then a few blacks and Hispanics and Filippinos. 46 percent of the men are non Whites, mostly Asiain. The 4 percent White men are not Americans of European descent. They are Persians and Indians. They only got in on the second try after their parents filed discrimination lawsuits on grounds of their Muslim or Hindu r
      Religion.
      How did I get hired at UCLA? Simple; I just checked the magic box, BLACK.

    Who cares about Asians. When will the MSM carry articles about the 500 points subtracted from the scores of Whites.? I live in Los Angeles a few blocks from UCLA. There are almost no Whites, either employees or students there.

    We California Whites fought hard for anti affirmative action Prop 209 almost 20 years ago. It was upheld by the federal courts. It is not and never has been enforced.

    Don ‘t expect the Asian activist groups to go against affirmative action. Occasionally Asians will file discrimination lawsuits. But every official Asian organization will join the blacks, Hispanics and liberals in favor of affirmative action.

    Sadly, Conservative Treehouse gets pretty much everything wrong, so I tried to corroborate this implausible story copped from the L.A. TIMES (which, obviously, also gets everything wrong). After drilling down to Google’s third page (the first two were filled with gleeful reiterations of the Times story) I finally encountered this:

    “A study on affirmative action by Princeton sociologist Thomas Espenshade showed that when numerous factors are controlled for, Hispanic students receive a admissions boost equivalent to around 130 points on the SAT, while black students receive a boost of 310 points. Asian students, however, face a 140 point penalty.” http://cornellsun.com/blog/2011/11/14/no-asians-need-apply/

    So three quick points: (1) This “study” was one guy who probably had an agenda going in; (2) no actual SAT points were gratuitously rewarded, it was just this guy estimating the proportional ethnic admission rates, and (3) the numbers from the study were even worse than CT (and the Times) reported.

    Fellow conservatives, if it ever appears we’ve uncovered a “smoking gun” indicting insane liberals, rest assured you’re probably being misled. The Commies NEVER reveal their true intentions or policies — think 1928 Nazis. Please don’t blindly accept these ludicrous attempts at outrage, because I personally believe they’re usually planted by the KKKK (Kool Kids Kommie Klub) as part of their ongoing “look-a-squirrel” strategy … and in fact, multiple pages of Google search were echoes from the conservative blogosphere, so in this instance their strategy worked.

      Athletic recruiting remains a huge factor in admissions because it is a backdoor way for unqualified blacks to gain entrance to top tier schools.

      White athletes in the so-called “elite” sports (tennis, lacrosse, crew, fencing) must have perfect SAT scores and higher than the admission average GPA. Why? Because, under a “Gentleman’s Agreement” amongst the Ivies and Div I schools, the cumulative SAT/GPA scores of ALL admitted athletes can not fall below the threshold of the median admission scores. The significantly above average scores of whites are blended with the significantly below average scores of blacks who play football or basketball.

      The article states what every Admissions counselor who has worked in the admissions dept will tell you, and what privately paid counselors also know.

      Next time, don’t be so overt in your trolling attempts. You might have better luck actually gaining an audience.
