Asian Americans are a “troublesome minority” for the critical narrative of racial theory because their community succeeds purely on the basis of merit, the author of a new book on Fox News argued on Wednesday.
“Critical Race Theory asserts that the world and America are divided into a racial caste system, whites above, blacks below,” Kenny Xu, author of “An Inconvenient Minority: The Attack on Asian American Excellence and the Fight for Meritocracy, ”said on“ America Reports ”. “But they have no idea what to do with Asian Americans because Asian Americans are a minority that has been discriminated against in this country, and yet they do and do. , I think, disturbs the critical account of racial theory today, and that’s why I wrote this book. “
Xu attributed the Asian-American success to “culture” because they tend to “study twice as hard,” are typically raised in two-parent family structures, and place “high value on education.”
“It’s the love of hard work and meritocracy, and it’s at stake with Critical Race Theory because Critical Race Theory believes merit is racist,” Xu said. “So if policies like Harvard’s discrimination against Asian Americans are allowed, guess who loses? It’s the Asian Americans who are working hard to get their place.”
According to statistics from the Pew Research Center on the economic situation of Asian Americans, they behave “well” compared to the general American population. However, he further explained that it “varies considerably among groups of Asian descent.. ”
“In 2019, the median annual income for Asian-headed households was $ 85,800, compared to $ 61,800 for all US households. Foreign-born Asian households earned slightly more than those headed by US-born Asians ($ 88,000 versus $ 85,000), ”according to the Pew Research Center.
“In total, 12 groups of Asian origin had median household incomes higher than the median of all Americans.”

Xu’s book attempts to debunk the critical account of racial theory that opportunities for non-whites are limited due to systemic racism in the United States. “An Inconvenient Minority” examines how Ivy League universities such as Harvard discriminate against Asian Americans who are qualified to maintain a particular racial makeup in their student body. He found that race-based admissions processes designed to promote diversity in elite institutions crush the narrative pushed by much of the mainstream media.
Hosts and experts from mainstream media such as MSNBC’s Joy Reid have fiercely rejected critiques of critical race theory, although there is apparent disagreement as to the extent of its influence on American educators. Many claim it’s not even taught in schools, and also flare up at the threat of laws that would outright ban it from being taught.

After analyzing 90,000 data on admissions to Harvard, Xu learned that over the past 30 years, admissions of Asian Americans have been kept at a “cap” of “18 to 15 percent” of the population. student body. He said Harvard’s own estimate is that if Asians weren’t discriminated against, they would make up “43 percent” of the student body.
“People say, well, is that too many Asians? I say I’m outraged by this statement,” Xu said.
“I am outraged that Asians are all the same kind of person, the same kind of face with no personality, we have to look beyond race in this country and I wrote this book, hopefully, to heal it. ‘America and bring Americans together in the service of meritocracy. “
