Yeah, he’s pissed. And you know what? He should be. Harvard’s policy is flat-out shameful. And they deserve to shamed for it.

Well, maybe not “implode” … but still, it’s significant that Lieu is slamming a progressive system.

Of course, it’s important to note that policies like this have always been racist at their core. Harvard’s discrimination against Asians and Asian Americans is a feature, not a bug. It’s part of the tradition of affirmative action.
