    A week ago, a fellow AM decided to join my new department as they felt like they weren’t appreciated by their past department in another institution (YT is a director, surprise surprise). Without hesitation, I gave him the position even though we had 10+ applications that were already reviewed. Ended up nearly doubling his past pay and put him in a position of leadership.

    I bring up this example as someone in Reddit posted about how helping each other/being self sustainable results in sacrifice.

    To that I say bullshit.

    We have more than enough agency and power to keep our brothers and sister prosperous as given the example above, and trust me, this isn’t an isolated incident. Helping one another out results in increased financial and social gain.

    I encourage all of you to actively help one another out. Peers must support peers and mentors must establish a stronghold for their mentees.

    Nepotism fights nepostism and we have a lot of catching up to do.

    I’ve had people interview me on scholarships because my grades got me an automatic invite. They saw me, and tried everything to imply it’s actually for blacks or latinos, or anyone else, not Asians.

    It’s like, can’t you see it in my name jack ass that I’m Asian? Even if I was half, it’d be AMWF, and I know you damn admin people at the university wouldn’t want that!

    I’m sorry to hear that you had to face this type of discrimination. Rest assured that I am doing everything in my power to keep my scholarship pan-Asian.

    Threatening you to not take in Asian fellows? Isn’t that illegal?

    I’m currently working on some articles for a newspaper and working with some people on a new app for this place that will have all our facts in a searchable format. We’ll see how it goes lol

    I am in academia so apparently not abiding to affirmative action is grounds for termination. I’ve sorted this out with the dean personally today and it’s safe to say they need me more than I need them. However it’s time I went into a private group anyways for both monetary and other project related reasons.

    I will be looking at moving somewhere with a lot of Asian population so I can further my mentorship.

    She’s also adopted. If anything , she has no choice in that. She didn’t ask to have white parents basically imprint on her like ducks upon the very moment she could understand things.

    I understand that my view point may be radical but I think it is justified due to how oppressed and targeted AMs are in society. My thoughts are that we collectively should focus on AM first and foremost as a strong AM imagery will lead to a strong Asian imagery. We should not waste time trying to dilute the conversation in order to change the minds of few AFs as AFs are very polarized in how they view AM at this point in time.

    I think the point is not to kowtow to AF, but rather to carve an opposition group. Whites know how to do this. They divide and conquer minorities so that blacks fight against asians that fight against latinos. The result? We are all bickering with eachother , while whites laugh and take the spoils. AM don’t have to be overly friendly with AF , but we should be friendly with each other. We want to divide and conquer the Woke AFs from the white Worshipping AFs.

    Are you talking about that long thread of that Asian gal DnaAbox? She just verified btw, she she’s an AF.

    You’ve been threatened not to give scholarships to Asians? LOL, so much for meritocracy here!

    I’ve been threatened not to take Asian fellows at my work. I take this seriously as my fellowship directly leads to high-income job offers.

    I know she is but every answer she gives seems to hide her white worshiping.
