Multiple leading universities have been investigated or even sued for allegedly discriminating against Asian-American students in their admissions processes.
Now, those same schools are making public statements condemning the purported uptick in anti-Asian violence.
As Campus Reform previously reported, Yale University was investigated by former President Donald Trump’s Department of Justice for allegedly violating the 1964 Civil Rights Act in their admissions processes.
A two-year probe found that in the case of Asian-American students, race was “the determinative factor in hundreds of admissions decisions each year.” Investigators concluded that White and Asian-American applicants had a one-tenth to one-fourth chance of acceptance compared with students from racial minority groups who boasted similar qualifications.
President Joe Biden’s Justice Department, upon assuming office, dropped the lawsuit.
Nevertheless, the university condemned discriminatory acts against people of Asian descent.
“Many members of our faculty address anti-Asian racism, particularly amid the pandemic, both in their scholarship and through scholarly organizations,” wrote the university’s Office of International Students & Scholars. “All of us — faculty, staff, and students — can learn and respond.”
Yale’s Department of Psychology stated that “anti-Asian prejudice is one form of systematic racism that continues to operate in our nation and in all its institutions.”
