Is “The Man” keeping you down? Then you must white! According to a new study conducted by researchers from Tufts University’s School of Arts and Sciences and Harvard Business School “shows that America has not achieved the “post-racial” society that some predicted in the wake of Barack Obama’s election, according to the authors of the study.” (aol) Many whites now believe that THEY are the ones being discriminated against. Samantha Clemens will be interviewing one of those researchers, Sam Sommers, and he’ll tell you about the shocking new revelations! Also… Our good friend John O’Brien is MAD AS HELL (at Bank of America) AND HE’S NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE! He’ll explain what he’s doing as Registrar of Essex County South. Don’t forget to listen to Samantha this and every Saturday from 10-11am on AM 1510 and www.samanthaclemens.com According to a new study conducted by researchers from Tufts University’s School of Arts and Sciences and Harvard Business School “shows that America has not achieved the “post-racial” society that some predicted in the wake of Barack Obama’s election, according to the authors of the study.” (aol) Many whites now believe that THEY are the ones being discriminated against.

Apr 30: West Wing Report & Affirmative Inaction – Asians left behind?
Apr 30th, 2011 by Sam

Guests:

  • Paul Brandus, White House Bureau Chief, West Wing Report
  • Sam Museus, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Higher Education and Asian American Studies, University of Massachusetts Boston

Obama’s trip

@West Wing Report: Independent White House journalist. Paul’s bio: 5 yrs Moscow, 5 yrs network TV, 5 yrs Wall St.; foreign correspondent, private investor. 53 countries & counting

We’ll talk about the threat from Pakistan, Pentagon/CIA, birth certificates/college transcripts/SAT scores.  What about Trump’s FICO score??

Affirmative Inaction

Are Asians held to a higher standard for college admissions?  What does the research show?  Are there some groups affected more than others?  What is the purpose of college admissions?  Can schools choose who to admit without any government interference?  What about legacy admissions?  What about girls performing better than boys?

Sam Museus, Assistant Professor of Higher Education and Asian American Studies, University of Massachusetts Boston:

“My personal perspective is that if institutions are using race to keep Asian-American students out, it’s based on a fear [among non-minorities] that these ‘other’ students are taking over our institutions or taking ‘our spots’ at the best institutions.”  Competitive disadvantage: High-achieving Asian-American students are being shut out of top schools around the country. Is this what diversity looks like now?, Boston Globe, April 17, 2011
