    And yet, it worked perfectly.

    He gained admission to Harvard Med School even though he admits how lousy his academic achievements to date are.

    There are tensions in Harvard Law School over Affirmative Action. The complainants are often Asians rather than Whites.

    So he basically only got in on account of his claimed skin colour and not on any actual qualifications, im lost for words to be honest.

    Don't worry about the op, it's perfectly acceptable these days to keep the meat and two veg, and the beard, and still call yourself a lesbian. The best thing about it (besides getting to call actual female lesbians TERFs*) is that you can invade female spaces at will and nobody can do a damn thing about it.

    For example, this man is currently taking up space in a Catholic homeless women's shelter, and all he had to do was change his name to Danielle.



    In terms of the OP, in my view yes it's still racism when it's practiced against white people and Asians. It doesn't become Good Racism just because it's discriminating against those "privileged" groups.

    It's almost as if Indians weren't enslaved and subject to some of the systematic legal, economic and social discrimination in the USA.

    Is what for real? That a bearded non-op transsexual man who claims he is a woman is taking up a bed at a catholic women's shelter? Or that white people and Asians are discriminated against in college admissions?

    Well it looks as if Attorney General Sessions is about to do something about this.
