Something that interests me about perceptions of Asians

Asians – Too Smart for Their Own Good? – NYTimes.com

Now, this isn’t quite a knock against this article, not at all. Rather. It is more about the racist assumptions that seem to be made used to keep Asians out of schools.

I’m not too surprised by the ‘individuality’ criterion. But I also tend to see a lot of mentions about creativity and leadership.

And I sit here, scratching my head looking at the thousands of years of civilization, history, cultures of many Asian ethnicities. The profound impact we’ve had on the world.

Scratching my head and thinking, “what the fuck? how can all of that not be seen as ‘creative’ or ‘leadership’?”

I mean, of course, the answer is white supremacy.
