    The argument began as soon as Charlie Mai and his brother, Henry, announced their plans to attend a Black Lives Matter protest that evening in D.C. Their father was not having it. Glenn Mai, a retired FBI agent, had been raised in Dallas by Chinese immigrants who had taught him that he would succeed if he just worked hard.

    Riding the momentum of the George Floyd riots, California's legislators have moved to ask the voters to repeal Proposition 209, the voter-passed measure to end affirmative action. According to the Sacramento Bee: More than two decades after California voters banned consideration of race in university admissions, public employment and contracting with Proposition 209, the state Assembly on Wednesday approved a measure that would ask voters to repeal the law. In a 58-9 initial vote, Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, D-San Diego, secured the necessary two-thirds majority approval needed to send Assembly Constitutional Amendment 5 out of her house and to the state Senate. Only...

    The doctor’s voice was filled with distress. Dr. Suraj Saggar didn’t have much time to talk. At times, he even sounded almost out of breath. Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck is under siege from the coronavirus, and he needed to get back to his patients. But first, he had a desperate message he needed to send. They need help. “It looks likes a war zone,” said Saggar, Holy Name’s chief of infectious disease. The hospital is in such dire need, it took the unprecedented step of pleading to the public for donations to buy critical supplies. Holy Name is...

    GEORGETOWN (Reuters) - Guyana’s top court on Sunday upheld an injunction blocking the elections commission from proclaiming a winner in this month’s presidential election, delaying the results of a vote that has been marred by accusations of fraud. A protester was killed and demonstrators took to the streets after diplomats described credible evidence of fraud in the vote, which will decide who leads the former British colony that is at the edge of an oil boom set to transform its economy. Chief Justice Roxane George said during a court session on Sunday that she would begin hearing the case on...

    An Uber driver described as a “pathetic little man” by his own barrister planned to drive a van into an ‘evil’ Gay Pride parade to kill non-Muslims, a court has heard. Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 28, also singled out Madam Tussauds and a double decker tourist bus as targets, Woolwich Crown Court heard. It was part of his plan to “unleash death and suffering on non-Muslim members of the public,” it is claimed. Jurors heard Chowdhury was cleared of preparing to commit an act of terrorism by an Old Bailey jury in December 2018. He is now standing trial for engaging in...

    Police in that Canadian city said a bucket filled with what is believed to be feces was dumped on a woman outside the University of Toronto around midnight Monday — the third poop attack at the school over the past four days. “I find this kind of behavior inexplicable,” Toronto Mayor John Tory told CP24. “This is a person, to me, who has very serious issues, it would seem.” The latest assault comes after two other incidents — both involving “liquified fecal matter” — unfolded inside the school library, according to CP24. The first was on Friday, when witnesses said...
  • The Attack on Asian-Americans (who oppose racial preferences)

    ... The most recent occasion for progressive grievance [against Asian-Americans] comes courtesy of the state of Washington. There, Asian-Americans proved instrumental in killing a law that would have overturned a two-decade-old ban on racial preferences in public education, employment and contracting. To do this, Asian-Americans successfully rallied to force the law onto the ballot—and then defeated it. It’s a staggering achievement in a state that ranks among America’s bluest, and in a contest where the pro-affirmative-action side enjoyed more resources plus the support of the political establishment, including an Asian-American former governor. The ballot referendum in Washington isn’t the first...

    Earlier this month a judge determined that Harvard’s admissions practices did not discriminate against Asian applicants. The lawsuit which led to that decision was filed by a group called Students for Fair Admissions. SFFA hired an expert who looked closely at Harvard’s process and discovered something curious. While Asian students score the highest of any group on academics and extra-curricular activities, they score consistently lower than other groups on Harvard’s personality score.The lead attorney who worked on the lawsuit, Adam K. Mortara, was invited to speak about the decision at Harvard last week. He argued that the judge had...

    A federal judge has ruled that Harvard does not discriminate against Asian Americans in its admissions process. The plaintiffs in the case presented evidence that Harvard’s “personal” scoring of individual applicants tended to be decidedly lower for otherwise high-achieving Asian students than for other racial groups. From a NY Times opinion piece I wrote about last June: Harvard evaluated applicants on the extent to which they possessed the following traits: likability, helpfulness, courage, kindness, positive personality, people like to be around them, the person is widely respected. Asian-Americans, who had the highest scores in both the academic and extracurricular...

    That late-night kebab might be considered a guilty pleasure, but could it one day be seen as a crime against the planet? Will the time come when the only means of procuring a slab of Aberdeen Angus is from a dodgy dealer with a cool box? The barrister Michael Mansfield has suggested that we should have new laws against ecocide – practices that destroy the planet – and that under them, meat could be targeted. “I think when we look at the damage eating meat is doing to the planet, it is not preposterous to think that one day it...

    Quick! Call the diversity police!  For the fourth time in five years the US team placed first in the International Mathematical Olympiad, this year tying for first place with China.  The six U.S. team members also won gold medals for their individual high scores on the Olympiad, known as the world championship mathematics competition for high school students. However, this very dominating winning team does not look like America -- all members are males, 5 Asians and one Caucasian, judging by appearances.   Photo credit: Carnegie-Mellon University Pictured above: 2019 U.S. International Mathematical Olympiad team members from left: Edward Wan, Daniel Zhu, Brandon Wang,...

    You all know by now that I’m into beauty pageants given that I grew up in Puerto Rico, aside from the fact that my best friend’s daughter is the current Miss Puerto Rico. She’ll be participating in the Miss Universe Pageant in December 2019. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts about this subject, Donald Trump has been to the island numerous times and we got to know him quite well when he was the owner of Miss Universe, Inc.

    In the wake of the college admissions scandal where meritocracy was bypassed by the wealthy and connected, New York City leftists Bill de Blasio and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are demanding an end to the strict meritocracy governing admission to the crown jewels of public education, Bronx High School of Science and Stuyvesant High. Yesterday, the freshman congresswoman tweeted out her outrage at strict meritocracy:   68% of all NYC public school students are Black or Latino. To only have 7 Black students accepted into Stuyvesant (a *public* high school) tells us that this is a system failure. Education inequity is...

    A restaurant in New Zealand is being accused of “incredibly racist service” after a waitress allegedly wrote “Asians” on a table’s receipt in order to distinguish the group from others in the eatery. A manager for the Falls Restaurant & Café, located in West Auckland, has since apologized for the incident, blaming it on a new waitress who “should not have done that.” “We never do this and we will never do that again,” said manager Arvind Kumar in a statement obtained by Stuff.co.nz. Kumar, however, also said that the customers were seated at an “unnumbered random table,” presumably making...

    The number of Asian kids admitted to the city’s specialized high schools would plummet by roughly half under City Hall’s proposed admissions revamp, according to a new report. The analysis by the nonpartisan Independent Budget Office found that Asians would get 31 percent of offers under the proposal — compared to the 61 percent who enrolled as freshmen for the 2017-2018 school year. “This is an independent corroboration of our worst fears,” said Wai Wah Chin of the Chinese American Citizens Alliance of Greater New York. “You don’t promote justice for one group by promoting injustice for another group.”

    The Philadelphia Citizen ^ | 01/04/2019 | BY LARRY PLATT
    ---snip--- The saga of Philadelphia’s soda tax war is about more than arcane tax policy, and it’s about more than who may be up and who may be down in this year’s mayoral election. It really gets to a big philosophical question: Just what does it mean to be progressive nowadays? Mayor Kenney and his allies speak the lingua franca of progressivism, but when what you hold up as your signature accomplishment is a tax, as opposed to the program it might fund, and when that leads to the expansion of a food desert in a city with the worst...

    Shopkeepers in Philadelphia's neighborhood convenience stores that serve food and beverages, locally referred to as "beer delis," face a legal prohibition on the thick glass barriers around cashiers that protect them from stickup artists wielding guns, knives, and other weapons. Because the shopkeepers predominately are Asian, and the customers (and robbers) are mostly black, this imbroglio looks a lot like a racist quest for vengeance against a commercially successful minority group.(Koreans) Julie Shaw of the Philadelphia Inquirer provides the details: Despite strong opposition from Asian American beer deli owners and their supporters, Philadelphia City Council voted, 14-3, Thursday to approve...

    Democratic councilwoman says the safety measure relied on in low-income neighborhoods hurts shoppers' feelings. Philadelphia is one step closer to getting rid of bulletproof glass in many of its small businesses as part of a larger effort to crack down on loitering, public urination and potential drug sales -- but it's triggered backlash from the shopkeepers.
  • Bill would force Philly's 'stop-and-go' stores to remove bulletproof glass

    A Philadelphia city councilwoman is defending her controversial bill that would force certain businesses to remove bulletproof barriers separating cashiers and customers. Councilwoman Cindy Bass said in a statement her proposed legislation only affects stores applying for a "large establishment" license, or sit-down restaurants where food is served and there is seating and tables for 30 or more people. The goal is to crack down on so-called "stop-and-go" shops, or convenience stores that sell hot food and alcohol, many of which have become nuisances to neighborhoods with intoxicated and unruly customers, according to Bass and other lawmakers.
