Netflix host and stand-up comedian Hasan Minhaj said that Asians opposed to affirmative action are the “worst kind” of Americans in the debut of his topical Netflix show, Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj.
“Now Asians — and I am lumping all of us together right now — I find it hilarious that this is the hill we’re willing to die on,” Minhaj said. “Our entire lives we get shat on — oh, you guys have small dicks; you’re bad drivers; you’re the color of poop; you smell like curry and kimchi. Nothing. We say nothing. The moment we can’t get into Harvard, we’re like, ‘I’ll see you in court, m*er!’”
The comedian noted that despite Asians comprising 5.8 percent of the American population, they amount to 22.2 percent of Harvard’s admitted class last year.
“Make no mistake. I am not ripping on an Indian uncle’s accent. I am ripping on uncles in our own community who lack self-awareness and propagate anti-black and anti-brown rhetoric just so Asians can get ahead,” Minhaj said.
Minhaj noted that the Department of Justice backed the lawsuit against Harvard’s alleged discriminatory admissions practices and that with the addition of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, “the chances of affirmative action getting struck down are very high.”
Minhaj concluded his monologue into the issue of affirmative action, chastising Asian Americans who insist a more fair admissions process by calling them the “worst kind” of Americans.
