Harvard Hates Asians (may be offensive to White liberals)

Asians have known this for awhile, and they call it the “Asian Tax.” Meaning Asians have to be more accomplished than peers from other racial groups to get into elite schools.

An Asian applicant with 1140 SAT has same chance of getting into a school as a Black applicant with score of 690, or a White applicant with score of 1000.

“Asian Tax” of 50 points off of your SAT score when applying to elite schools.

Asians noticed this “Asian Tax” sometime in the 1980s and in 1988, some of them asked the Department of Education to investigate Harvard’s admissions policies and practices. At that time, Harvard undergrad was 20% Asian. The findings from that investigation: Asians are at a disadvantage because fewer of them are applying as legacies and recruited athletes and they’re not well rounded enough.  Fair enough, most Asians accepted the conclusion and began to make adjustments. It’s 2019 and Asian enrollment has remained at around 20% since then, even though Harvard’s incoming class size has remained the same and:

  • Asian population in the US has doubled from 3 percent to 6 percent.
  • Asians are the only group whose test scores have risen since 1988. Since then, test scores for all other racial groups — especially for Blacks and Hispanics — have fallen.
  • Far more Asians applying today are legacies, and legacies get preferred treatment
  • Far more Asians applying today are recruited athletes, and athletes get preferred treatment

The 2018 Harvard admissions lawsuit shows that if Harvard were to admit students based solely on grades and test scores and extracurriculars, Asians would be 48% of the freshman class. If preferences for recruited athletes and legacies are given, it’d be 43%.

Harvard rates applicants on a scale of 1-6 — 1 being the highest — in the following categories:

  • Academic
  • Extracurricular
  • Athletic
  • Personal Traits (as determined by reading of Personal Statement, I assume)
  • Recommendation letters (2 teachers, counselor)
  • Alumni (interview) personal and Overall rating

Asian applicants score overall highest in Extracurriculars, Academic, Recommendation Letters, and Alumni Interview. They score overall the lowest on Personal Traits. Harvard consistently rated Asian applicants lower than others on traits like “humor, sensitivity, grit, leadership, integrity, helpfulness, courage, kindness and many other qualities” when determining the personal rating according to an analysis of more than 160,000 student records.

Asian applicants score the highest on Recommendation Letters (written by people who typically know the applicant for years) and Alumni Interview yet lowest on Personal Traits. Let that sink in. How is that possible? Blatant racial discrimination behind closed doors that’s later repackaged as liberal benevolence to the public — affirmative action for Blacks and Hispanics — is how.

Because I don’t think the rejected Asian applicant who has a perfect SAT score and is valedictorian and lettered in two sports and did a solo at Carnegie Hall at age 14 lacks “grit.” And it’s the Asians who have the “courage” to open businesses in the most dangerous neighborhoods in America, the sort of neighborhoods White liberals love to talk about helping but never visit.  Maybe the problem is that too many Asian applicants lack the “sensitivity” White liberals are looking for in an applicant — they don’t spend enough time talking about their good intentions while refusing responsibility for their fucked up results, choosing instead to blame others for the failure of their ideas and methods.

Difference Between a Liberal and a Conservative

The difference between a liberal and a conservative isn’t in their intentions — they both want to make the world a better place — it’s that liberals are in love with their intentions while conservatives only care about results. Put simply, liberals are covert narcissists prone to bouts of envy, they’re sentimentalists in love with the sound of their crying sessions about injustice and suffering. They post pretentious ignorant shit like this on Facebook:

Anyone who doesn’t care about Human Rights should UNFRIEND ME NOW.

because deep down, they love virtue signaling too much to figure out that much of the non-Western world hears “Human Rights” as a Westerner’s polite battle cry to take over the world and shove democracy (which, to the surprise of most Americans, most people in the world don’t want) and the US petro-dollar down everyone’s throats. To which the virtue signaler replies: “that’s not what I meant.” Some of us don’t care what you meant, we only care about what happens. Unintended consequences, anyone?

Here’s another difference between a conservative and a liberal: when a conservative doesn’t like you, he’ll point a shotgun at your face and tell you to get the fuck off his lawn. A liberal who doesn’t like you will invite you to her house and if you don’t want to go, she’ll insist and then try to turn you into the sort of person she likes. The conservative is an asshole while the liberal is a tyrant. (Combine the two and you get American imperialism).

Unintended Consequences: Affirmative Action’s Affect on Blacks and Hispanics

What would you think about yourself if you got into school with significantly lower scores and grades than average? Pick:

a) I’d feel like a fraud, undeserving of my place in school
b) I’d justify my place by emphasizing the wrongs done to my kind
c) I’d convince myself that those who score higher have terrible personalities while mine is much better than theirs

Option A – Imposter Syndrome – is the best option. The low self-esteem can drive one to work harder to catch up.

Option B is the play victim option. Waste life getting a PhD in Ethnic Studies or Sociology to make a living out of managing victim status.

Option C is the vanity option. A lifetime of narcissistic delusions. That would explain why Blacks have the highest self-esteem of any group, despite performing the worst in life.

Your kid needs surgery. What would think if you found out that your surgeon — only two years out of residency — got into medical school despite getting a “C” in O-chem and had below average MCAT scores? Would you find another doctor or would you tell yourself that test scores and grades don’t matter much, they’re racially biased anyway, and that this surgeon deserves a chance?

You take the toughest classes, graduate at the top of your class, have perfect scores, and contribute to school clubs. (This isn’t an exaggeration, many Asian students with such a profile are getting rejected from elite schools). You watch significantly less accomplished students in your class get into schools you’re rejected from. How do you feel? What are you thinking?

There are more unintended consequences, such as mismatches in student ability and school difficulty that results in significantly lower graduation rates for affirmative action admits and students settling for easier majors, bullshit majors really, in order to graduate.

The point is, study after study shows that this kind of racial discrimination — packaged as White liberal benevolence — hurts a lot of people, especially Blacks and Hispanics. The only ones it helps are White Liberals, and not just because it keeps out Asian students who’d push them closer to the bottom of the grading curve.

Intended Consequences: Personal Salvation for White Liberals

Affirmative action doesn’t take spots from White applicants. It takes them from Asian applicants, as evidenced by what happened when UC Berkeley got rid of affirmative action in 1998: Asian population shot up (35% to a high of 48%), but for Whites it stayed the same (and has since fallen from 32% to 22% today). The purpose of Affirmative Action isn’t to help Blacks and Hispanics — the mismatch hurts them lots — it’s to make White liberals look benevolent and to keep Asians out because White liberals hate Asians.

Sure, they love Asians who have become the sort of person they like — Champagne Socialists who hate Rednecks.

The person who wrote this yelp review is Asian, June Chu, former Dean of Pierson College at Yale University. White liberals love her because she hates the same people they hate and supports liberal policies such as Affirmative Action.

But they hate that the mere existence of Asians proves White liberal theories about how the world works and how to make it a better place wrong. Asians prove that you don’t need feminism for women to have rewarding careers in fields such as medicine and engineering and business. Asians prove that test scores have less to do with class and more to do with culture. Asians prove that being poor doesn’t make people obese. Asians show that low self-esteem, not high self-esteem, is correlated with high achievement. Asians prove that being a minority in America isn’t crippling. Again, liberals care more about their intentions than results, which means they never blame themselves when their ideas lead to disaster. Instead of adapting their ideas to how people are, they force other people to adapt to their ideas — that’s tyranny, that’s how totalitarianism begins, by telling people what to feel and think. And that’s what left-wing nut case Chairman Mao did when his social and economic programs — including a radical affirmative action program — ruined China, he doubled down and blamed “reactionaries” for the disaster and sent them to re-education camps, where many died.

This Chinaman is a White Liberal. He ruined China. By the time he died, 90 percent of Chinese people lived in poverty.

And doubling down is precisely what White liberals of all races are doing today. When they hear that affirmative action makes people question the intellectual qualifications of ALL Blacks and Hispanics, they call those doing the questioning racists. When they hear that affirmative action induces panic and self-doubt in Blacks and Hispanics, they blame microaggressions and the lack of safe spaces. When they hear that Asians are pissed about the unfairness, they tell them — get this — that Asians owe their success to the civil rights work of Blacks and Hispanics and should therefore step aside. To the White liberal, anyone who doesn’t sing along with the liberal narrative is a deplorable reactionary and must be ostracized, just like in Maoist China.

A pragmatist, Deng Xiaoping, replaced White liberal Chairman Mao. Today, China’s poverty rate is 4% because its leaders only care about results, and not about people’s egos.

I’m not saying that White liberals don’t want to help Blacks and Hispanics. They do but what they don’t realize is that their first priority is to help themselves vis-a-vis “helping” Blacks and Hispanics and whomever else is victim of the day. What they seek through their efforts is personal salvation to alleviate their anxiety and guilt about being White, and that salvation comes from a Black person telling them that they are in fact good people fighting the good fight. That explains why White liberals can continuously and fantastically ignore bad results and blame others for the failure of their ideas and methods. White liberals don’t care that affirmative action makes life worse for most Blacks and Hispanics and introduces a new source of racial tension. They only care that most Blacks support affirmative action. That support, not good results, is what makes the White liberal feel good, similar to a mother who feels good as she watches her children enjoy candy that’s bad for them. It’s sick and twisted.

Are Asians the new Jews?

Look to the past to understand the present — people and institutions don’t change much. When the Jewish population at Harvard went from 7% in 1900 to 25% in 1925, then Harvard president Abbott Lawrence Lowell was alarmed about the cultural damage they might do to Harvard and pushed to cap Jewish enrollment at 15%. Since White Anglo Saxon Pricks (WASP) are a polite bunch, they had to repackage this effort to impose racial quotas as something benign. So they introduced preference for legacies — most legacies were WASPs — and sold it as a way to increase donations from alums and to enhance networking. They also began to evaluate the character of applicants, ostensibly to ensure that only students of high moral character attend Harvard when it fact, they now admit, it was to handicap Jewish applicants. Sounds like the same shit they’re doing to Asian applicants today except now they admit to having kept Jews, but not Asians out.

Look to the past to understand the present.  Not much has changed.

Harvard is a private institution, they can do whatever the fuck they want, just as I can eject from my business any customer I want. What some Asians are looking for from Harvard and other schools isn’t an end to racial quotas — White liberals and anyone else can be as racist as they want, I couldn’t care less —  but an admission that they’re used to keep Asians out. People just want to know where they stand so they can make adjustments and manage expectations. And I’ll take the conservative who tells me to get the fuck off his lawn while pointing a gun at me over the liberal who drags me inside her house and then tries to turn me into someone she likes. I don’t need to be brainwashed, I just need to know if I’m welcomed. Now get the fuck off my lawn.

How to Stop Emotional Eating

You can’t.  You can’t change someone’s tolerance for stress or their attitude toward emotions they’re uncomfortable with (typically anger, fear, and hate). Telling an emotional eater how to stop emotional eating is like telling a fat person what needs to be done to lose weight — they already know what needs to be done. That’s why anti-obesity education programs are stupid and ineffective and in some cases, exacerbate the problem (like that stupid food pyramid guideline that told everyone to carb out). People don’t need to be told how many steps they ought to take per day and what they need to eat to reach their body shape goal.  The entire weight-loss industry (not to be confused with fitness industry) is a scam.

How to Control Emotional Eating

One can, however, control emotional eating so that the problem doesn’t get worse.

Acting to control, rather than to stop emotional eating, should already feel liberating.  It’s like the difference between a trainer asking an out-of-shape client to run an entire mile at any pace instead of a four minute mile.  It’s nearly impossible to re-train someone to stop their psychobiological reactions and failure will only discourage continued effort. But minor behavioral changes are possible, especially if they have nothing to do with food.

Below are a few habits that make emotional eating worse.

Reading and Posting Motivational Quotes
Those who post them are doing so precisely because they lack motivation and are hoping to gain that motivation by posting cliches about it. Those who are motivated don’t waste time reading about how to be motivated.  They’re busy doing what needs to be done to reach their goals.

Motivational quotes state the obvious, there’s nothing profound about “Gratitude is the best medicine”or “Everything we ever wanted is on the other side of fear.” Which means posting motivational quotes is at best virtue signaling and at worst, will make you feel terrible about yourself for lacking motivation once the nice feeling you get from virtue signaling wears off.  So stop reading and posting them.  They’re not inspirational, they’re self-defeating because they trick you into feeling like you’re making progress when you’re not.

Dieting and Reading Diet Books
Emotional eaters are obsessed with food.  So are dieters.  Telling an emotional eater to go on a diet is like telling a sex addict to watch porn to get rid of the addiction. The goal is to stop obsessing about food, and avoiding food requires as much obsession for food as does craving food all the time.

In most diet books, the subtext is: it’s not your fault, you weren’t educated but now you are.  Bullshit. People know what they should and shouldn’t be eating and doing.  Feigning ignorance is a self-defense mechanism created by an education industry that teaches people to not trust their instincts, to become clueless, needy nitwits really. So stop dieting and reading diet books that turn people into hapless twits if you want to control emotional eating.

This diet book was written for Americans who prefer to blame American food instead of themselves for getting fat. This book is stupid.

Sarcasm
Anglo cultures (eg. UK, Canada) love sarcasm.  It’s everywhere and most are proud to be sarcastic.  Here’s the dictionary definition of sarcasm:

the use of irony to mock or convey contempt.

Here’s the Wiki definition:

a sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter gibe or taunt

Here’s the Greek etymology of sarcasm:

Greek sarkasmos “sarcasm,” from sarkazein “to tear flesh, bite the lips in rage, sneer,”

Which means most Americans, without realizing it, are bitter people who prefer to express contempt in a joking manner so as to not take ownership for feeling and expressing it.  And people wonder why middle-class America is the most medicated demographic in the world.  When people dress feelings they’re uncomfortable with — hate and anger — as “harmless, sassy wit,” they become emotionally corrupt. One can’t be nice AND sarcastic, just as one can’t be a nice rapist.  Pick one or the other, one can’t have it both ways.  Trying to have it both ways is how batshit crazy begins.

There’s nothing wrong with feeling contempt and taunting another person. Even Jesus felt contempt toward the Pharisees and had sharp words for them.  It’s the dishonesty about one’s intentions and sense of self that’s toxic.  If you’re going to be mean, be unabashedly mean and take responsibility for it instead of dressing it up as a joke.

“My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole.” Which he is. But at least he’s not emotionally corrupt and batshit crazy.

And just how mean does one need to be?  Usually, not mean enough to warrant using sarcasm to express what’s bothering you, the razor blades sarcasm brings to most fights are gratuitous and excessive.  Check out this opening line from an Emily Warren music video:

Good news Riley, looks like you’re going to be working the entire weekend

That’s a typical sarcastic remark Americans make. How is that funny?  It isn’t funny to Riley, who was looking forward to having the weekend off. Maybe it’s funny to those who really really hate Riley and wish the worst for her? Is the speaker marveling at his own so-called wit, at Riley’s expense?  Wouldn’t it be kinder if he’d said this instead:

Riley, I’m sorry.  I know you were looking forward to taking this weekend off, but we really need you to work this weekend. I’ll make it up to you.

Point is, a lot of people make sarcastic remarks when it’s inappropriate to do so.  This creates negativity that’s somehow packaged as funny to those who delight in other people’s follies and misfortunes.

If the intention is to be bitter and mean, then fine, continue with the sarcasm.  But don’t tell everyone how nice you are because that’s about as honest as American foreign policy.

Save the sarcasm for when you’re really really pissed, like ready to choke that person out pissed.  Here’s how Jesus used sarcasm to taunt a mob that wanted to stone him:

They picked up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” – John 10:31–32

Ouch. Here’s another example of sarcasm used appropriately, someone asked Moses if he was fucking up after he led his wandering Jews out of Egypt:

Was there a lack of graves in Egypt, that you took us away to die in the wilderness?” Exodus 14:11

Another example from Hamlet Act 1, Scene 2, in which Hamlet gets pissed about his mom marrying his uncle way too soon after his father has died:

“Thrift, thrift, Horatio! The funeral bak’d meats did coldly furnish forth the marriage tables.”

In the above three examples, sarcasm is used only in dire situations and its purpose isn’t to joke around, it’s to elucidate what’s really happening. To use sarcasm to joke about everyday situations is to use it inappropriately, with disastrous consequences.

Vanity of Vanities

Other seemingly benign habits we could add to the list include sentimentality, politeness grandstanding, euphemistic language, gratuitous compliments, and so forth.  The point is, emotional problems and cravings aren’t triggered by external events.  We trigger them ourselves, often without realizing it, because we’ve fooled ourselves into believing that our sins are harmless, good habits even. That’s our vanity at work, the deadliest of the seven deadly sins because it’s the source of all other sins precisely because it makes us blind to them.

The bogeyman isn’t some public figure one disagrees with or some criminal we read about in the news.   The bogeyman is within every one of us — we create our own emotional turmoil — and our worst sins are the ones we hide from ourselves and others, repackaged as benevolence.
