This sentence stuck out to me:
The ultimate goal is diversity in our colleges and graduate schools.
Why, exactly, is that our ultimate goal, and not educating the best and brightest?
Anyway, these comments were, I think, the best retorts to that view:
When folks use race as a proxy for diversity -- in what sense are they defining diversity?
Pretty much, yeah. We all look alike, too.
"What is specifically hurting Asian Americans is alleged discrimination in favor of white applicants."
Again, it always comes down to white people being racist.
"Being white does not add to the diversity of the Princeton student body."
...because us white people are all the same.
