Those Asian American anti-Affirmative Action Ads

screen shot asian

That’s a screen shot of the most popular video circulating on the internet on Monday of this week. The video is pretty cool, but ultimately not a big deal, just some footage of a cat protecting a little kid from a dog attack. Sweet. I want a cat like that, don’t you? But if you look on to the left of the video link, you will notice something that might just be about to become a really big deal.

When you’re done cringing, you might want to read Wanted: Disgruntled Asian-Americans to Attack Affirmative Action, by Julianne Hing, published on Colorlines on April 25th. Asian Americans are being used as we have been used over and over again; as a shield against accusations of racism protecting those who would commit racist acts.

If you haven’t read it, you should.

    Are you kidding me. These days, everything is considered racist, it is how things are accomplished when people don’t get what they want. Sure, racism still runs ramped throughout the United States, but not getting accepted to a job, or, in this case, Harvard doesn’t mean you can scream racist. Its getting kind of ridiculous at this point.
