Harvard has apparently instituted a strict cap on the admission of Asian American students.

Greg Piper at The College Fix has the story:

Harvard discriminates against Asian-Americans, ‘similar challenges’ planned

It started with Jews in the 1920s and it continues with Asian-American students today, according to a lawsuit filed against Harvard for its admissions policies.

The Project on Fair Representation filed lawsuits against Harvard and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, it said Monday.

Both claim the schools are in “blatant failure to comply with recent Supreme Court directives with regard to race preferences” and “are emblematic of the behavior of the vast majority of competitive colleges throughout the country.”

The Harvard suit says it’s “strictly limiting” the number of Asian-American students it admits each year and “engaging in racial balancing year after year.” The UNC suit says that like Harvard, the school is “not in compliance with the new Fisher strict scrutiny requirements” and that UNC itself has admitted in a court filing it can increase racial diversity through race-neutral means.
