Some Asians’ college strategy: Don’t check ‘Asian’

I found this article quite interesting, so I encourage everyone to read it. Through our entire semester we talked about discrimination and how other racial groups are getting affected by this and how they react to this process.  This article tells few stories of Asian young people who are multiracial or just Asian and while they apply to high quality University they don’t want to admit their ethnicity. “Now, an unknown number of students are responding to this concern by declining to identify themselves as Asian on their applications. “ The statistics are pretty impressive while only for Yale “About 1,300 students were admitted. Twenty percent of them marked the Asian-American box on their applications; 15 percent of freshmen marked two or more ethnicities. Ten percent of Yale’s freshmen class did not check a single box.” I don’t know if discrimination will ever end and every other generation will feel comfortable and proud of their origin. As of right now not many racial groups are able to do that.
