Honestly, I’m not sure what to think about this, or what it could mean ultimately for anyone (because don’t you think just a little bit that there could be something else behind this?) – but I’ll at least throw it out there for the sake of news:
The Trump administration threw its weight Friday behind a student group that says Harvard University discriminates against Asian-Americans in its admissions process, urging a federal judge Friday not to keep years’ worth of admissions records under wraps.
The move by the Justice Department forecasts the emerging fault lines in what could serve as the first major affirmative action case of the Trump administration.
The fight surrounding the secrecy of the Harvard’s competitive admissions process stems from a 2014 lawsuit brought by Students for Fair Admissions, a nonprofit organization that argues race-conscious admissions policies are unconstitutional. The group includes over a dozen students who claim they were rejected from Harvard because the it engages in “racial balancing” by capping the number of Asian-Americans it admits each year.
