Sabin came here from Bialystock Russian Empire and changed his name. Probably to avoid arrest. He was a traitor to his adoptive country and traveled “to Cuba in 1967 to discuss with Cuban officials the possibility of establishing a collaborative relationship between the United States and Cuba through their respective national academies of sciences, in spite of the fact that the two countries did not have formal diplomatic ties.” Do I smell a Logan Act violation? You bet I do. You should, too.
But this latest approach to race-based cherry-picking is taking the mindset to a new level and is thereby dismantling two major narratives in the process. First, by adding Asian-Americans to the list of non-qualified fellowship candidates simply because of their race, the leftists in academia and at Google are – perhaps unknowingly, or maybe just uncaringly – thoroughly blowing up the idea of so-called ‘white privilege.’
As their case is heard and the potential for an end to the overtly racist affirmative action program that many schools have adopted is placed in the crosshairs, a lurking question is if any of the justices will have the guts to speak up on the issue and help the others see the light and gain the courage to strike down the policy.
Some may now say that Justice X will be a Role Model™. That’s a laugh. Prominent black Americans have long been plentiful and highly visible; we have black entrepreneurs, politicians, athletes, entertainers, billionaires, scientists, doctors, lawyers, judges, professors, journalists, intellectuals (and pseudo-intellectuals), diplomats, generals, a (billed as) black vice president and even have had a (billed as) black commander in chief.
