A non-profit group, Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA) is suing Harvard University to court.

According to BBC, the group has accused the school of discriminating against Asian-American students.

The SFFA said Asian-American applicants with a 25% chance of admission “for example, would have a 35% chance if he were white, 75% if he were Hispanic, and 95% chance if he were African-American.”

It added that Asian-American applicants are ranked lowest on personal traits, such as likeability.

Harvard has however denied the claim, stating that 22.2% of students admitted to Harvard are Asian-Americans, while African-Americans make 14.6%, Hispanic or Latino 11.6%, Native American or Pacific Islander 2.5%, and “Others,” made mostly of white students, make up just under 50%.

    If Asian-Americans are represented higher than African Americans in Harvard, then I will have to say to the protesters, “If I hear “pim!”
