Part extracts of Prof. Zimmerman’s article on Lin-sanity phenomenon

What’s most telling here is this notion/rationale, “It’s not sufficient to earn near-perfect grades and test scores, or to excel at a musical instrument, or to win a science-fair contest….
But America’s elite universities don’t want too much of a good thing, if it ALL COMES FROM THE SAME RACIAL GROUP.”
I fully agree with Prof. Zimmrman in his final statement/calling: “If you are Asian, our society says, excelling at school simply isn’t good enough. And that’s what I call Linsanity.”
This is an understanding of what advanced societies really need. The myth of just because if one could study hard and score well in tests means the guy could handle all other things well is really a BS.
Nevertheless, there’s still lack of fair play in common life’s encounters for Asians in the “land of promises”. But, in comparison to other places outside Asia, USA remains a better choice for those who have dreams to pursue. Facts of life, to receive education in top US universities is of great value and many brilliant guys from Asia are still pushing hard to gain entry.
