This lawyerly trick, to divide & conquer us, is the Dirtiest !
Here is the evidence.
Exhibit (1): In America, if a woman is wronged, get a woman lawyer to
defend the guilty; if a minority is wronged, get a lawyer
from that minority to defend the guilty:
Predictably, when AsAm children were wronged, Harvard got an AsAm lawyer, William F. Lee, to defend it.
William Lee was never active in the affairs of the Chinese Am community. However, he is highly placed at Harvard. He is a Senior Fellow of the Harvard Corporation, which governs Harvard.
Exhibit (2): Get the Asian Americans to fight each other:
When AsAms orgs, including 80-20 EF, held a rally at Copley Square in Boston, a counter demonstration at Harvard Square by Harvard AsAm students was organized on the same day. Purpose? Get AsAms to dispute AsAms!
Exhibit (3): Divide Ed Blum from AsAms:
The Harvard lawyers used to claim that Ed Blum had no AsAm support,
and that he was only doing his own thing. But when the AsAm support was proven at the Copley Square rally, the lawyers now claim that Ed Blum was using AsAms to destroy Affirmative Action.
How false can be the above claims be. Read the opening statement from Ed Blum's lawyers when the Court opened on Oct. 15:
"The future of affirmative action is not on trial here in the next couple of weeks; the Supreme Court has held race can be used in a narrowly tailored way - diversity and its benefits are not on trial; SFFA supports diversity," Mortara told Judge Burroughs. "This trial is about what Harvard has done and is doing against Asian American applicants and how far Harvard has gone in its zeal to use race in its admissions process."
根据这个说法，AA不在这次哈佛诉讼里面。高院的判决其实解决了我一直有的疑惑，就是不好在AA站边，到底支持还是反对。如果AA完全没有，那对生长在逆境中的黑人和墨西哥人就不公平。如果大面积明目张胆实施AA就是对优秀人才的不公平。高院说，AA可以有，但是只能用在 ”narrowly tailored way"。这比国内对少数民族在高考分数上的照顾要公平得多。
Great News - Prominent AsAm Law Professors
Speaking out to Fight for our Children
In the Jewish community, their prominent law professors and lawyers have ALWAYS actively defended the rights of Jewish Americans. After each success, the Jewish community also greatly honor those lawyers & professors.
Note that Prof. Suk works for Harvard. She wrote an article that directly disputed the claim of William Lee, who is the lead lawyer to defend Harvard. Recall that William Lee is also a top Harvard power.
Prof. Suk displayed such courage and compassion, which Harvard believes that AsAms lack. What a shining real life example that slaps down Harvard's subjective judgment against us. Sometimes I wonder if it may be the lawyers who defend Harvard who lack courage & compassion.
Prof. Suk was clearly pointing out that Harvard's claim that our lawsuit will destroy Affirmative Action is nothing but a lawyerly MISdirection. Prof. Chang and I and perhaps 90% of all AsAms heartily agree.
When this lawsuit is over, 80-20 will be honoring a lot of LEGAL EAGLES. Together, we shall build another great tradition for our community. Those AsAms in the legal field will take care of our legal fronts, and we will greatly honor them.
