Too Asian.

Don’t be frightened.  We are just here to steal your jobs and turn your children into slaves.

Discussing the role that race plays in the self-selecting communities that more and more characterize university campuses makes many people uncomfortable. Still, an “Asian” school has come to mean one that is so academically focused that some students feel they can no longer compete or have fun. Indeed, Rachel, Alexandra and her brother belong to a growing cohort of student that’s eschewing some big-name schools over perceptions that they’re “too Asian.” It’s a term being used in some U.S. academic circles to describe a phenomenon that’s become such a cause for concern to university admissions officers and high school guidance counsellors that several elite universities to the south have faced scandals in recent years over limiting Asian applicants and keeping the numbers of white students artificially high.

  1. Thank you for the links. I wouldn’t exactly call the idiotic Alexandra, fresh from her Havergal College experience in the whitest part of Toronto, exactly representative. Neither is her pampered brother.

    The fact that she “asked that her real name not be used in this article, and broached the topic of race at universities hesitantly” only made me hate her more, though.
