This girl didn’t go to UT, her first choice school. She was a good student, with some extracurriculars, so she went to… her second choice school? And now her case is being heard by the Supreme Court.

Hey, girl. You’re a little upset that you didn’t get your number one college choice, huh? Asian Americans know how that feels. Except that when we’re kept out of colleges, we’re above the standard for admissions, not below it (like you). That’s right. Asian Americans, on average, need higher SAT scores, GPAs, and more extracurriculars to be accepted.

And then we know that you’d be crying to the Supreme Court to institute affirmative action again, to stop the hordes of (American born) foreigners from taking over your country. (This paragraph not backed up with statistics. Just the previous one.)
So shut your pie hole and let the Supreme Court pay attention to someone who’s actually been discriminated against.
