Fisher v. Texas

Fisher v. Texas is a recent case that is soon to hit the Supreme Court. The case focuses on the constitutionality of affirmative action, but on a larger scale, it also affects the idea of racial preferences. This case could have major implications for Asian Americans who are currently hindered the most by racial preferences in college admissions. In fact, “Asian-Americans needed SAT scores that were about 140 points higher than white students, all other quantifiable variables being equal, to get into elite schools” (ref). However, depending on the resulting decision, these figures may change drastically.

    If anybody ever asks me about anti-East Asian bias in higher education, I’d cite the very reason that I live in Canada...
