I would guess that the overwhelming majority of the participants on the forum are Democrats.
But talking about various tests isn't necessarily harmful to Asians. Maybe this policy should be changed -- maybe using that test as the sole criteria is leaving a lot of kids out who would be great students. Are you saying that any policy other than maintaining this particular test as the sole criteria is necessarily harmful to Asians?
