There’s an interesting story on the debate about racial preferences within Asian-American groups.
In the 1980s, San Francisco’s prestigious Lowell High School required Chinese applicants to score higher on an admissions index than whites, blacks and even other Asians as part of a legal mandate to diversify its schools.
Cheng, a Lowell graduate, couldn’t believe that was fair or even legal. But when he turned to Asian-American civil rights groups, they were of no help.
“These organizations, which all came of age largely as the ‘yellow’ affiliates of the NAACP and civil rights establishment, they said, ‘Hey there’s nothing to see here,’ ” Cheng said.
So he helped form a legal foundation and sued.

Asian and Jewish groups both are often staffed by lefties with no actual commitment to their communities, but an unshakable commitment to leftist dogma and their own careers. They don’t represent their communities. They’re Trojan horses used by the left to occupy them.
New York Assemblyman Ron Kim, a Democrat, said conservatives pigeonhole Asians as the “model minority,” but progressives on the left, such as de Blasio, vilify Asian-Americans instead of seeing them as partners.
