See this is why I hate affirmative action. People do well on their SATs not because of their race, it's because of themselves as an individual! So what if typically Asian households put more emphasis on education or schooling? In athletics do we put a cap on Black people and say, "Oh, sorry, only X amount of African Americans can play sports because typically speaking they tend to be good at sports" ?? I don't understand why schools are becoming like this, this is pretty damn racist. As long as these students are American citizens why the HELL would you base it off of ethnicity only? I'm sorry but I would really rather bump qualification over ethnicity. Because God be my witness if you're trapped inside your burning house, you probably don't care WHAT ETHNICITY the firemen are ALL YOU CARE ABOUT IS THOSE FIREMEN RESCUING YOU AND GETTING YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE! COME ON GUYS!!

A rare subject which will never get the rational attention in this forum.
Let me quote from the above link which had urged me to type my wrong English.

"At the 2006 meeting of the National Association for College Admission Counseling, a panel entitled “Too Asian?’’ looked at the growing tendency of teachers, college counselors, and admissions officers to see Asians as a unit, rather than as individuals.

My humble request to those sweekers of knowledge is this.
Seek your knowledge at home and thereby shape this wretched, despicable world a better one to die peacefully.
