Via AAN:

Liberal racism sank to a new low as every Senate Democrat present Thursday voted to allow colleges and universities to use federal tax dollars to deny admission to Asians and Asian-Americans based solely on their race.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) offered an amendment to hate crimes legislation that would “prohibit Federal funding for any institution of higher education that discriminates against Asian Americans in recruitment, applicant review, or admissions.”

The amendment states “no institution of higher education…may receive any federal funding if the institution has a policy in place or engages in a practice that discriminates against Asian Americans in recruitment, applicant review, or admissions.”

The amendment, which required a three-fifths majority to pass, failed on a 49-48 vote.

Every Senate Democrat, except two who missed the vote, voted to let federally-funded colleges and universities ban students for being Asian.  Minnesota’s Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith were not present for the vote, as they were in Minnesota for the funeral of Daunte Smith.  They would have presumably voted to permit “no Asians allowed” policies.

Every Senate Republican voted against the “no Asians allowed” policy except Mike Lee, who was not present for the vote but would presumably voted for it.

Cruz offered the amendment following a Justice Department investigation last year that found Yale University structured their admissions policies to deny entry to Asians and Asian-Americans, solely because of their race.

“Prosecutors found that Yale has been discriminating against applicants to its undergraduate program based on their race and national origin and ‘that race is the determinative factor in hundreds of admissions decisions each year,’” The Associated Press reported.

The investigation found students who were ethnically white or Asian had just “only one-tenth to one-fourth of the likelihood of admission as African American applicants with comparable academic credentials,” the Justice Department announced.

“Yale’s race discrimination imposes undue and unlawful penalties on racially-disfavored applicants, including in particular Asian American and White applicants,” Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband, who headed the department’s civil rights division, wrote in a letter to Yale’s attorneys.

“Unlawfully dividing Americans into racial and ethnic blocs fosters stereotypes, bitterness, and division,” read a statement from Dreiband. “It is past time for American institutions to recognize that all people should be treated with decency and respect and without unlawful regard to the color of their skin.”

It’s apparently the beginning of the end of America, as it’s going to create even more division and animosity between different ethnic groups in the country than we are seeing right now!
The Democrats in the USA like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, AOC, Bill de Blasio et al are
the real racists, as they are the ones judging people on the basis of the color of their skins, appearances and surnames! They are total idiots and dangerous for Americas future!

Why is discrimination against black people a no-no, but discriminating against Asians is ok? This makes no sense to me, about as much sense as discrimination against Japanese after WWII. This is so fkd up!! WTH is wrong with people?!

Almost all Asians have jobs, loyal taxpayers, compliant to law and order and peace loving citizens. To discriminate them based on their ethnicity is absolutely insane. The US has been known to promote equality to its citizens including illegals. Now this, Democrats leading the way to discriminate them. What kind of Democrat lawmakers do we have nowadays? I believe Asians will remember these Democrats come election time.

I thought that only white supremist were racist. Universities have been selecting admission on race for a long time and is now coming to light. I would guess that blacks have had preferential treatment for over 10 years and not only admission to universities. It looks like ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS are taking their place with this administration. Sorry blacks.

The demonrats are the ones who are racist. They were the Southern plantation owners who wanted slaves to work their land. They were the ones who started the KKK. Biden spoke at Byrd’s funeral, a known KKK member. They were the ones who wouldn’t pass the Civil Rights Act. The racist Johnson changed a few racist demonrats to vote for it saying we’ll get these N to vote for us for the next 200 years. So know they say there is systemic racism in our Country, and they allow this attack to happen to Asian Americans who are not the white privileged.
