‘The View’ co-host blasts affirmative action as ‘downright racist’ against Asian Americans

  • In light of the landmark affirmative action cases before the Supreme Court of the United States, the hosts of talk show “The View” argued over whether the race-conscious student admissions policies of Harvard University and the University of North Carolina are unlawful.
  • The hosts discussed on Wednesday the cases in which the plaintiffs allege that Asian American students face discrimination resulting from affirmative action initiatives.
  • While co-host Sunny Hostin argued that the case against Harvard is “intellectually dishonest,” co-host Sara Haines said that affirmative action is “downright racist” against Asian Americans.
  • Co-host Whoopi Goldberg suggested that they “adjust” the standardized test and not stop affirmative action, noting that the bigger picture of the designed procedure is “to help people who would not normally be able to get in.”

And the pharmacist didn't tell me that. That's not general knowledge: if you're over a certain weight, it's less effective."
