The Students for Fair Admissions filed a lawsuit against Harvard University alleging discrimination. They provided an analysis of 160,000 applications from Harvard that shows that the chance for admittance for an Asian-American male would increase from 25% to 35% if he were white, 75% if he were Hispanic and 95% if he were black. Asians have a tendency to have high scores in grades, tests and extracurriculars, but Harvard routinely rated them lower on soft categories like positive personality, likability, kindness, etc.

Harvard University records unveiled Friday show the school engages in blatant, egregious racism in the name of diversity.

The documents also show how Harvard discriminates. To counter Asians’ tendency to do extremely well on traditional measures (test scores, grades and extracurriculars), it routinely rates them lower on soft categories like “positive personality,” being “widely respected,” likability, kindness, etc.
