Where Does Affirmative Action Leave Asian-Americans?

Many Asian-Americans are aware of the “model minority” stereotype that has
been forced upon them, and how that same stereotype has been used to
perpetuate anti-black policies and attitudes, particularly in education.
This uncomfortable dynamic, in which two minorities are pitted against each
other, was particularly on display during the Harvard affirmative action
lawsuit

Geneva Abdul’s article on the runner Annet Negesa broke my heart. Intersex
athletes are rarely written about, and this article presented Ms. Negesa’s
situation with real empathy. Whether it was Serena Williams’s post-birth
matches or Caster Semenya’s strength on the track, black women’s bodies
were picked apart over and over again in 2019. This time, though, the
athletes were speaking up and finally being heard.

This is the tale of a banker and a customer, a former N.F.L. player, who
documented the racism they encountered at a couple of Chase branches in
Arizona. They recorded their conversations, and this article provided an
unusual glimpse of ingrained discrimination in banking. This article,
written by Emily Flitter, resonated with many, many readers and prompted a
memo to JPMorgan Chase staffers by the company’s chairman and chief
executive, Jamie Dimon.

John Eligon tracked down a black graduate of Eastern Virginia Medical
School, alma mater of Gov. Ralph Northam of Virginia, and learned that the
white students lived such separate lives from their black classmates that
they really may not have known, or considered, that they would find
blackface photos offensive. This testimony to a more insidious form of
racism has stayed with me all year.

The issue of compensation for black Americans related to slavery and other
injustices stormed back into public consciousness this year. A lot of
attention was paid to the moral, political and social dimensions, but there
were few attempts to do an economic analysis that tried to assess what a
reparations program would actually cost. This article tried to pull
together decades of work by economists and take an honest assessment of the
costs.

In 1910, black farmers made up 14 percent of American farmers. In 2012,
about 1.5 percent of American farmers were black. The percentage of
black-owned farms has declined about 90 percent, mostly because of
systematic racism

“The Camp of the Saints” was published in 1973 and almost immediately
panned as a racist screed (the Times’s review said reading it was “like
being trapped at a cocktail party with a normal‐looking fellow who suddenly
starts a perfervid racist diatribe”). In this article, Elian Peltier and
Nicholas Kulish explain why the book has become a must-read within white
supremacist circles and how it helped inspire the idea that white
populations of Western countries could soon be supplanted by newer arrivals.

What do you do when you find out that the longtime purveyors of organic
tomatoes and kale at your local farmers’ market may also be trafficking in
white nationalism? That’s what happened in a crunchy college town in
Indiana, and this article, written by Jack Healy, tells of how the
community responded. Anti-fascist protesters showed up, the farmers denied
being white supremacists, residents argued about the limits of free
expression and intolerance. The story reveals so much about the America
that we live in today.

In a round table about black film in the 1990s, six black directors discuss
their experiences. They share memories of barely disguised prejudice, of
being marginalized by executives who feigned interest in their work, of
lacking the safety net that seemed to buoy their white peers. They describe
a system that failed to sustain a generation of minority talent, and
continues to challenge those who seek to reform it.
