21. Asian Americans hate affirmative action. It hurts them.

They want strictly merit-based for the most part. Look whatís going on at Harvard and Yale. Asian students are suing because they believe racial weighting is penalizing them.

UC Berkeley has a sky high amount of Asian students. Is that unfair? Should that change?

When you have groups that put high emphasis on higher education, they want merit to speak for itself and not have the slots available artificially limited.

Itís a very common sentiment here in the Bay Area.

The Latino community is much more complex. You could (and someone probably has) write a book about their thoughts on the matter.
