NY Times: Candidates Question Treatment of Asian American Applicants at Harvard


The New York Times reports that a slate of outsiders lead by anti-affirmative action advocate Ron Unz is running for the Board of Overseers at Harvard.

Among their platform which includes making undergraduate tuition at Harvard free is disclosure of data showing how the university’s freshman class is selected each year.

Their motivation is their suspicion that Asian American applicants at Harvard are disadvantaged in favor of White, Blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans.

Among members of the slate is Lee C Cheng, himself a graduate of Harvard and co-founder of a group supporting the White plaintiff in the anti-affirmative case against the University of Texas now before the U.S. Supreme Court.

You can read more about the goals of Unz’ slate in the New York Times.







  1. RE: Candidates question treatment of Asian American applicants at Harvard: Blacks and Hispanics rely upon scholarships from other Blacks and Hispanics that went to Harvard and other scholarship avenues. White females get them from feminist organization.
    Asians who benefited from a Harvard degree should start a scholarship program to give other Asians opportunities. There are many scholarships that Asians can get. Children need to educate their parents about the fact that it is okay to get these funds with pride. “Takes a village to raise a child”. I recieved a scholarship for being of the mixed race. Studying hard and making wonderful grades no longer help to get us a good education. Sadly higher education institutions have be come a money maker.
