Asian student

The liberals' obsession with "identity politics" has taken a strange new turn. Some schools in the U.S. and abroad allow students to self identify as the opposite sex.

Now an American university is allowing students to "self identify" as black.

According to a published report, Brown University is implementing a change to its graduate school application that allows applicants to "self-identify" as persons of color.

The decision allows Asian students to choose another race or ethnicity that will give them higher visibility and afford them special privileges.

According The College Fix, the policy change came about after international Asian American students were not treated as historically underrepresented groups by the university.

Brown University officials claimed the disparity "caused some students to not receive invitations to certain events, such as a multicultural student dinner," The Brown Daily Herald reported.

But some graduate students think the change will lead to "institutional invisibility" for these students if they claim to be another race or ethnicity.

  • klwbaby

    I'm not sure what article u are referring to because they said nothing about an Asian student can identify as another race but their own.

  • Kayke they think saying they are black will give them more
    Rude awakening in t-minus 2 mins.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Now this is crazy!!! Sounds like identity theft to me....


    First, men can identify as women, now this nonsense! I called this one! Now Rachel Dolezal can get her job back since the world has gone crazy!

  • MookieFly

    So is that they can claim to be black or claim to be a POC? Honestly, I know Asian/Asian Americans are frequently left out of the conversation when it comes to POC. Some do it intentionally to align closer to their white brothern.

  • Ni Ni

    Wonder if im ever gone get the chance to identify as white and get my white privilege ?.

  • Noirluv45

    Where in the article did it say people can change their identity other than saying they are a POC?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    How convenient. I bet when they get pulled over by a cop they won't self-identify as black.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Lol...never looked at identity theft this way!

  • MookieFly

    Sammy Sosa said he is not waiting. Its his privilege and he want it now

  • OP2

    The whole world of people has not gone crazy. Not everyone is buying into that dysfunctional devilish liberal BS filled with lies & illusions to mislead people. -the pandora box has opened and now just about anything goes. I also called it.

    Nothing’s good about the twisted social agenda that defies science & human DNA being peddled to us by progressives aka hollywierd liberals. Just look at what given up social conservative moral values has led to in our society: all kinds of health issues and a list of other negative statistics across the board.

  • Jen_no_juice

    I don't even have the energy ?????

  • Elevated Soul

    This is an example of how the ignorance of the Black Democrat effect Blacks as a whole.....Now there will be mofos of other races as well as Blacks from other nations that can't stand Blacks, using our race to get ahead.

    This is occurri by because Black Democrats support liberal illusions.

    This is what White liberal want...Still think they are your friend,eh?

  • Django the God

    They tired of eating white rice.


    YASSSSSS! I am not falling for it, none of it!

  • Jen_no_juice

    Probably cause they don't care for our black asses

  • MsVAllDay

    5,4,3,2,1................utter disappointment.

  • Liah

    HELL NO!!!...Its funny how they want to use us when its convenient!!!...HELL NOOOO!

  • Liah

    RIGHT!!!!...They donot even LIKE us!!!...Is this really about "giving a choice" which is unacceptable!!!...Or getting more "funds" allocated to their schools due to the MINORITY STATUS??/...I'll wait!##WEARENOTALLDUMB

  • Liah

    Ill pass!...The "smelling" like a dog might be one of the stipulations!

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Liah


  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (That was mean...)

  • Quitedeliteful


  • OP2

    You knew it was coming. Once they started manipulating & silencing the public with reverse psychology (PC) to push through lies that defies science & human DNA, then it opened a pandora box for others to apply the same BS techniques to manipulate a social agenda to benefit themselves.

    The Asians have already sued or challenged IVYs as to why a Black was chosen over them? However, they will be found out once their lies is discovered during an interview. Tell us about your Black history and ancestry to really trap them on the books with lies. -to disqualify them.

  • Elevated Soul

    This is about allocated money going to people it wasn't meant for.

    This is about Black people being used to give to people pretending to be Black...These leeches are not contributing anything to Blacks,they just take take and take again.

    I'm not shocked because the struggle of the ancestors and elders has already been hijacked by gays.I blame Blacks for allowing the Democratic Party to feel it was okay to use the struggle.I also blame the sorry Black politicians who never corrected this situation because they were too busy getting handouts to stay quiet.

    Black people need to really "wake the fvck up"...

    Mindy of the Mindy Project brother did that but his black racial experiment failed big time. He shaved his head and used his name “Joe Joe” to sign up as a black men to get into med school with a 3.1 GPA. He was trying to show even if you are black and have failing grades they will keep you regardless. They put him out because of his bad grades and he also proved that the stereotype of folks from India are the smartest was just a myth.

  • Roderick2011

    Social conservative moral values like Roy Moore diddling underage girls and hanging around malls and football games hoping to find an under-aged teen?

    Those so called conservative values like Jim Crow weren't all that great for blacks.

  • OP2

    Stealing scholarships and boxing out Black was college campus diversity.

    For employers & colleges to catch and quickly eliminate these frauds (after they have sent in their apps online), is to send a link immediately to complete the final step of their online app.

    That link should ask for the to upload a current face video to tell us in 2mins about your ethnicity, demographics & goals and why you chose their school.

  • hottlanta

    People always used race to get people pissed off about Affirmative Action they don't want to talk about the white families getting into these so called top schools because of family lineage, donation or my favorite naming a building after someone. They know Billie still reads at a 5th grade level at 18 but if you name that building he will be valedictorian and graduate in 3 years.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Yeah I always assumed they didn't want to be considered people of color...

  • hottlanta

    I know right. Someone put up that Neapolitan ice crème meme and each time go pass that section and see that ice cream I laugh.

  • Soda
  • SpillyNillie

  • Faux Gibbler

  • free

    lawd. everybody wanna be black but nobody wanna be black.

  • Vonn

    They want to be black for scholarship & Grant opportunities. They don't care if they're not invited to the annual baby got back ball.

  • hottlanta

    Black schools don't get money because they are black. They find every reason to shut them down even if their quota are 2 students short of their goals. White schools such as Columbine and Sandy Hook increased their funding even though they had violent crimes there and was never put on the dangerous school list to lose funding.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Now my question is.......can blacks say they are white lol (not like some of us not already doing that) lol

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Oooooh so when “being BLACK” works to their Advantage it’s Just ALLOWED... gtfoh!!!
    ...are you “BLACK” when the cops ask?

  • hottlanta

    If you are black and smart you can't get a job in Dump administration. If you been a white lawyer outta school for 3 years and never tried a case in court you can get a life time-time judgeship. I will pass and say I am white.

  • Ebony N’ Sweet

    Why not create an program for Asians too? lol.Why they got to pretend to be us?

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Wouldn't that be more logical lol I'm just saying

  • Coffee1st

    I didn't see where it said they could change identity but rather they could self identify. And to self identify as pic means that they would have to choose certain a ethnic AA, right? Now, I may have missed something so feel free to correct me.
    Buti don't is why would an Asian not be invited to a multicultural event. That seems like something that could have been resolved on the schools end..... Instead of finding a loophole for student to lie about their race


    oh god.. u an Indian too? lmao


    yall wanted hillary to be president tho.


    black folks dont even kno wtf they voting for..

  • Junkanoo

    What are the special privileges black students are afforded and how will this give Asian students more visibility . All this was done so Asian graduate students would be invited to multi cultural events? seems extreme, will it really fix the problem

  • Noirluv45

    OK, I see what you are saying, but if a person is Asian, that person is clearly not Black. I just think it's insane for people to be able to claim something they aren't, but in this day and age, that seems to be the going thing.

    I don't know why an Asian would've be invited to a multicultural event either. Right. It could be easily resolved through the school and not by lying about who they are.

  • Rayne

    Lmao yup you see I chose something other than the usual .

  • We Can Do This

    When it comes to housing, financial and social status we all know what they're going to check.

  • We Can Do This

    Paul Mooney.

  • Coffee1st

    it's insane for people to be able to claim something they aren't
    We, humans, think we're so smart and have it all figured out to the point that we can self sustain. We are foolish... and our foolishness has gone rogue. The ridiculousness of it all - governments, education, the family structure, entertainment, child rearing, laws and moral standards, etc. These folk running round here saying there is no God or mocking those who trust Messiah are more than welcomed to their beliefs. But I refuse to get on board a sinking ship. It's gon capsize sooner than later.

  • Elevated Soul

    Thank you...WOKE indeed!

  • Noirluv45

    Please say that again. Everyone didn't hear you!

  • SumthinSweeter

    just waiting on people to legally be allowed to identify as giraffes or whatever zoo animal they choose.

  • SumthinSweeter

    You are speaking nothing but the truth about systematic racial disparities and how they constantly under-fund and cut out anything in place that will advance the black race and one of our biggest talented and educated youth.

  • Hmmm~?

    I’m so tired of people pretending to be black only when it’s advantageous to them. We already don’t get shit, so why try to take some of the little resources we have that are specifically for us? Plus, they’re asian. Why do they even need special benefits?

  • hottlanta

    Crimes at those white schools are underreported where they fudge the numbers to make them look good. They got busted last year and the person said if they had the time to put the correct numbers for fights and drugs in the system they couldn't get work done.

  • Mo Mobetta

    It’s these kookie Democrats yawl be supporting.. that’s the hilarious part about it. They get people all riled up and do silly shiitt. Like this on the low

  • SumthinSweeter


  • hottlanta

    Yep like if they pay $500,000.00 for a special real estate investment (money laundering) they get those special Visa's to come over here and don't have to stand in long lines to become a U.S. citizen. Notice they wasn't on the travel ban. I wonder why.

  • hottlanta

    Let's talk about white folks AA where they get jobs based on who they know even though the person don't have any experience. My favorite is they create jobs for their friends and if a job is open they don't tell us/keep it to themselves. We come to work/we look up and here is Bob to take an open position. Then they fill the position and put an ad in the paper as if the position isn't filled. AA at the highest level which no one wants to talk about.

  • Not Down With The BS


  • Maxima

    This is part of the plan to "deracialize" blackness, yet keep all the institutional anti-black discrimination structures in place. The more people identify as people of color, the defense will be that racism is dead.

    Look, if Asians want to attend higher education in America, they should realize that even if they are paying, they are guests. Affirmative Action was to try and correct historical discrimination (and even present day) for African Americans. Let's be clear, these foreign students were not subjected to slavery, generational wealth theft and Jim Crow.

  • Mystique

    I agree with everything you said 1000%. This policy needs to survive strict scrutiny. I'm not sure it will.

  • Berry Melon

    Yeah, most recently I've heard a lot of people say they wanna be a different race. I'm all for alternative views, but in reality these people don't realize that what you are self-identifying as won't be genuine. So say if you were Asian and you tried to say you were "black" it wouldn't cut it. Because to that black person you would be a poser. You know a wannabe? It's like Asians for example, when white people or anyone else try to act Asian (when they are not) what are they again? Oh, yeah... a Weeaboo right? I say just be happy with who you are. I have nothing against those who self-identify as another race or gender, but just so they know - they will not be accepted by others. I cannot sugar coat the truth...

  • Berry Melon

    We already have them, dear. They are called Furries.

  • unknown user

    Asian males are the black women of thier community

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    They are people of whats the problem? They are not white..people who are white will not accept them as white.. most asians hate their darker side too so I can't really go into depth on cares about this is low..

    Liberal policies and politics are eliminating the labels. Liberals have been imposing their will on identity...

  • chris

    Keep supporting these liberals and their nonsense. Black people we are in our own here

  • chris

    Wow boycott Mindy

  • hottlanta

    She has totally disowned his azz because she knows AA has benefited her quite well. He even wrote a book about it. He was trying to be smart and it backfired. God don't like ugly. When he came out he didn't say he was her brother until folks identified him, then he admitted he was her brother.
