Can we perhaps infer that the stock of the Puritans has died?

They have no more cows?

His parents were from Hungary but they changed the name to make it sound more American.

The Justice Department Is Investigating Harvard’s Admissions Practices
allegations that they discriminate against asian-americans

not cooperating

harvard is being sued by a group calling itself "Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA)" who allege anti-Asian discrimination,

It's a zero-sum game. If you want a larger percentage of group X, that means that other groups will have smaller percentages.
If they went to race-blind admissions, Harvard would likely be majority Asian.
Is it right to tell an asian applicant that he (or she) can't get in because Harvard already has enough asians? (ok, they won't say that, but that's the reason)
If the argument for affirmative action is to right past wrongs, I don't think too many chinamen owned slaves in the US, and most hispanics (who are discriminated in favor of by harvard) weren't the victims of historic racism in the US, since they've only fairly recently immigrated to the US. Like the Asians.
It's actually pretty shocking if you think about it, asians immigrate to the US and suffer institutional racism even in the 21st century.
I'm not sure that there's that much difference between Harvard in this respect and somewhere like Malaysia which puts a cap on the number of ethnic chinese Malaysians who can go to university in order to set aside places for ethnic malays
