Why Affirmative Action Is Setting Up Some Students for Failure
"You've written this superlative work inconvenient minority. Everybody needs to get this book. Everybody needs to read this book. The attack on Asian American excellence and the fight for meritocracy by Kenny Shu that's ex you Kenny shoe. I know you're not a psychiatrist. You're not a group psychologist, but you are out there. You are traveling the nation, talking about this discrimination. I have to ask a question based upon my personal experience. I was a fellow at Harvard in the 90s and 98 99. And I went to the Kennedy school as a fellow. I took some courses. And right there in the 90s, at the end of the 90s, I saw reverse discrimination. I saw people who were there at Harvard who were clearly there because somebody said, oh, you're the right skin color. You need to be here. And in my year there, I saw these people suffer. I saw them, you know, out of their depth, I saw them struggling to keep up. And I wanted to myself, and now after I've met you, I wonder even more, isn't there some kind of really detrimental effect, you're having on those you think you're helping by putting them in a situation that they're not ready for? Isn't this like a double whammy for the community that they're supposed to be assisting Kenny? First of all, thank you for mentioning that I'm touring the nation and you can book me at color us united dot org organization that are represent. Second of all, let's talk about yes. Let's talk about the damaging effects of racial preferences on the people that they're supposedly trying to help. So new studies have been released. Unfortunately, African Americans who get in because of affirmative action into these top law schools, for example, tend to graduate at the bottom of 25% of their law schools. That leads to lower salaries, that leads to lower confidence and these people, if they were just matched to the law schools in which they were qualified for it, they could have graduated the top of the class, they could have been well sought after for partnerships, law firms, everything like that. So I don't even get the sense that racial preferences is actually even helping these black individuals furthermore a new study showed that black stem majors tend to tend to drop out of stem at much higher rate because of affirmative action because they were put into courses in which they're ill equipped to compete,
What Is D.E.I.? Kenny Xu, President of Color Us United, Explains
Why 'Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion' Is More Divisive Than You Think
"It used to be about equality, racial equality, equality and civil rights. Now we have this phrase or this word equity and we have the acronym, so diversity, equity, and inclusion. When you talk to us about why these nice sounding words are actually more divisive than ever before. Yes, let's unpack these terms, okay? Why is the left switching from equality to equity? Equality says, we're just going to treat you on your merit. We're going to give you equal opportunity to succeed, but after that, it's on you. You got to compete for it. We don't believe in equal outcomes. We don't even believe in equal racial outcomes, right? We're going to give everybody a public education. We're going to give everybody access to healthcare, whatever you want to call it. This used to be what liberalism was, by the way. And then we'll let you compete or liberalism at least purported to be. But now they're replacing that term with equity. Why? Because they don't like competition. Now they're going to force the racial outcomes that they want, even if it compromises equal opportunity. Here's what I mean. So they say, for example, that the achievement gap right now in terms of test scores is inequitable because black students tend to do worse on the SAT instead of white students. So what does Harvard do? What are top colleges in the school in the doing in the U.S. right now? Well, they decide they want to eliminate the SAT. Not because not because anything's wrong with the SET. Yeah, it's a test, and it's not the only thing that you should base your admissions off of, but it's not inherently racist or discriminatory.
Seb Talks to Kenny Xu About Racist Standards at American Colleges
"Those who are not familiar with you or your work, will you give us a little bit about your background and how you ended up doing what you're doing today, Kenny? Sure. I was a math major in college. I went to Davidson college. I did not have any experience speaking on these issues, but I knew from my time applying for college that Asian and Asian Americans were always going to be held to a higher standard, just because of their skin color. And I thought that that was wrong. But so many of my Asian American Friends didn't really buy into that or they bought into that Kool-Aid. They started saying things like, well, you wouldn't want too many Asians on your college campus anyways. And that was very offensive because Asian Americans are very diverse and they're very different people. So I started speaking out about this. I started speaking about a Harvard about Harvard's discrimination against Asian Americans. And which led to a Supreme Court case that has now been litigated at the highest court of the land, it could overturn race based admissions forever. It's called students for fair admissions versus Harvard and since then I've become the president of color S united and what we do is we fight for a race blind America. And we believe that that's the principle that should motivate us, not race.
Kenny Xu Shares Shocking Statistics About Ivy League Admissions
"Will you just share with us some of the shocking statistics that you divulged at the conference in New Jersey, then yesterday on my show on newsmax when it comes to the barriers, the official barriers that are being put in place by deans of admissions by the directors of admissions at these very prestigious schools in America. So give us the nuts and bolts because I think most people will not believe what is being done to the Asian American community. Yeah, this is the results of my investigation in my new book and inconvenient minority. And the results are staggering. They are staggering. Asian Americans have to score 440 points higher on the SAT to have the same chance of admission as a black person. And a 150 points higher to have the same chance of admission as a white person. Asians actually score highest academically in the admissions process to Harvard. They score highest extracurricular and then Harvard penalizes Asians by calling them the lowest on this personality score. Now, what is a personality score you may ask? It's a test of what they call a likeability, good humor, leadership, skills, it's very subjective in Asian seem to pass with flying colors to get the highest scores on alumni interviews because the highest scores and teacher recommendations, a second highest on counselor recommendations. But Harvard rates the lowest anyway. Very suspicious. Seems like Asians are being discriminated in this process.

American Express Goes 'Woke'
"American Express Kenny has disavowed capitalism, talk to me about that. American Express brought in a Harvard Law professor, no surprise. His name is Khalil Muhammad, he came in and spoke to all of the employees. This is based on the sources that I've witnessed. He came and spoke to the employees about how capitalism is racist. And by the way, how American Express should lower credit requirement for black Americans. That's what he said. And so if American Express takes their advice and judging by how woke they've gotten a majors do that, they're going to become an explicitly racist company in the name of wokeness. This is why we have to stop this is why we have to fight back. We have to organize the ordinary Americans against American expresses woke

"kenny g" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"It is called listening to Kenny G, very proud of it directed by a penny lane. I contacted you last year. I didn't think there was any chance you'd want to be involved, but I was hoping and laid out a possible idea. And you said, fuck it. Let's meet the director. Sounds interesting, and you're ready to go. What made you want to do this? Well, I actually just read the text that you sent me to long text with penny's pitch. So I read the pitch. I just now just and so it's been like a couple of years a year and a half ago. Yeah. And I read it and remember how I liked what she said. I just love the way she's that she put it. She talked about how there's going to be some people that are just really mad and angry that I'm so successful. And let's talk about that. So I thought this very interesting that somebody really realizes that this is kind of absurd, but yet it exists. And so let's look at it. It was one of the best pitches I've ever got. And she laid it out perfectly. You've had one of the most successful careers of any musician in the last 40 years. At some point you became a little polarizing, but you kind of embraced it the whole time. You understood it. You understood the vaccinations behind it. Yeah. And it kind of became in the second half of your career. Just part of the part of your career. That was it. And you always, I always thought initially, I always thought it should be called Kenny G has the last laugh or Kenny has the last laugh, and that we talked about that as a title. I think listening to Kenny G is better. But you've always understood and I mean you've done as well as just about anybody, I think. But how did you have such a sense of humor about some of this stuff? Well, you've not been hearing it since the 80s. And it hasn't really affected me at all in the sense that I know what goes into my music. I know how much I practice. I know what kind of a musician I am. And so when somebody like Miles Davis comes up to me and tells me he likes what I'm doing and the way I'm playing. When I read an article about some jazz critic that's telling me that I'm, you know, harmful for something. I go, well, maybe you should ask miles, what he thinks. Right. And so I don't really put a lot of credibility in what they're saying other than the fact that they have every right to say it. And it makes interesting reading. And of course, if you're from that perspective, you're going to have that opinion. So it didn't surprise me. It's just that, you know, you see guys like Miles Davis or other jazz music musicians that say, you know, we don't want to just keep recreating the past. We want to come up with something new. So I'm playing a whole different style of instrumental music. They just don't seem to like that style, but I'm doing a lot of people did. But a lot of people do. And I like it. Otherwise I wouldn't do it. I wasn't doing it because I was some genius that knew that if I did it this way, people would just love this music and I'd be really successful. There was no home for my music when I created it in the 80s. There was no radio wasn't playing instrumentals unless it was either real traditional jazz, and that was pretty much it. And so I had no home. So why would I do it if it wasn't heartfelt? Well, one of the cool things about the film is it really goes into how obsessive you are about your music. Which I don't think you get credit for, right? Especially with saxophone players are Trump and players or anybody where we just see somebody playing an instrument and we just think, oh, they just go out there and they just play an instrument. And meanwhile, you're like painstakingly figuring out every piece of every song and you're like slaving over the afterwards when the recording and putting stuff in after the fact and that was the part that I didn't know 'cause I didn't know that much about what your process was. But I thought it was cool to just see somebody especially after all the success you've had who really still gives a shit about how you're doing stuff, you know? I just hope when people see it, they don't think that somehow I'm making everything really sterile. And not emotional. But it's just the opposite. Even though I'm painfully fixing a note here or fixing it out there, it's because there's a certain emotion I want the song to have. And if I just fix like a little vibrato on one note, that to me makes this whole beautiful message happen perfectly. And it's not like it's sterile. So yeah, I feel like I'm like a director that's in the editing room. And it's painful. I know penny had a lot of pain trying to figure out what seems to keep in and how to edit and there's lots of there's lots of possibilities. And I listen to my music so much, I go a, B or C, three days later, I'm going um, I still can't figure out. And finally, somehow it hits me and I get to move on, but that's why it takes 6 years to make this particular record. I think one of the things you were such a comet there for 6, 7 years that and this happens in music, it happens in sports. It happens with authors, pick anything where people have real success. And at some point, people are like, all right, enough fuck this guy. Like, all right. At some point in the mid 90s, there are radio stations that you've basically spawned, which I had kind of forgotten and then in the documentary it's laid out like this whole smooth jazz. Yeah. This is because of you, 'cause now and now all these people it's this whole format. And at some point, there's like becomes this resentment that comes in and part of it is just, I think where fans are like, all right, I get it. All right, this guy's had another giant album. But then there's also the other musicians who were like, why was it this guy and not me? When did you, when were you aware of that? The little bit of resentment from other musicians. Yeah, I've always kind of known that, you know, it's just it's just kind of the way it is. I remember doing an article for downbeat magazine, very prestigious jazz magazine. And they said, look, we want to put you on the cover. And they do this interview with me and I'm thinking, wow, this is super cool. So when the article comes out, I am on the cover, but the whole article is other musicians talking about me and why I'm bad at this. I don't deserve that. I went wow, I didn't know that was your, that was your angle? Yeah. Yeah, you kind of learned the hard way. Yeah, I saw that. And when I read the comments, it's just, listen, everybody has jealousy in them. And I just think, look, the whole thing is open for anybody, like play your sacks the way you want to. And if that works out great, that's what I'm doing. I'm not a genius, like I said, I didn't know that this was going to happen this way. But if you would want to have the success I'm having, just figure out how to do it. I'm not stopping. Worry about your own stuff. Yeah, I'm not getting in anyone's way. I never thought that I was taking anything away from anybody. And I think that's one of the comments that some of these critics make is somehow I'm taking away from what other musicians might have. But there's plenty just do your thing and it's all and it's all up to you..

I say something about Kenny G and this guy, the trumpet player goes, well, you know, people joke about those guys, but Kenny G is a fantastic musician. In his own right, you know, people make jokes about Kimi G or the guys who play other jazz instruments like women Tisdale or whoever those guys aren't you here on the smooth channel, whatever the channel is, it's always the smoothest jazz smooth jazz. They make jokes about these guys, but these guys are competitive musically with the other jazz greats in their own right. My uncle lost his fucking mind. When I say he lost his mind, he was like, young man, I don't even know you. But if you about to tell me that some goddamn Kenny G can't stand up next to Coltrane or Davis or Louis Armstrong or 80s people, you need to get your young ass up out of the house and my homie looks back up and goes, wow, wow, wow, why are you talking to me like this? And my dad is like, everybody calm down. And I'm like, no, don't calm down. You guys, please. Express all of the feelings that you have in the loudest way. And then he actually said that as far as musicianship, Kenny G is just as good as any of those guys, he just doesn't play the same style of jazz. And it was a Civil War. Wow. Well, that's why we did this Doc. One of the most polarizing musicians. And yet, one of the most successful musicians, and he totally gets the conversation. He's very aware of it, which is what makes him so interesting. All right, then we can hear you in higher learning. We can hear in the ringer verse. Any good marvel movies coming? What do we got? Oh, yeah. We got the hawkeye right now, which is a marvel Disney+ show that's on right now. We're covering that on the ring of earth. And then in a couple of weeks man, Spider-Man: No Way Home. Oh yeah. One of the biggest probably not one of the biggest the biggest marvel moments since endgame. So you guys, please, if you're happy at all, keep up with us. Pew pew.

We all say you know you know we should do this and we should do that and we could have this and we could have that, but the question is is who's going to do it. So, With my children and everything with from solid gain that idea and my family. We decided to give it a try, and and I didn't live there all the time I, lived there, and then I moved away like everybody else. Do I'll move into the suburbs. and. It was really nice, but I kept thinking about South Philly. You, know I'm always in south Philly because that's where our office was and everything so eventually. I! DuNno inspiration comes to came and said look. When we did was clean up the ghetto that that was that was one of those ones that kept pounding. And so it's like a you've got to put one foot forward and see what you can do, and and it all started pretty much. With With Bein the properties once we started buying all the properties. And we have so many of them is in what we do with all these raggedy house. All all these big lots and raggedy houses in. And so it's just a matter of hey. WE'RE GONNA to clean up the ghetto.

Grab when and But it wasn't as beautiful as it was when we go back to South Philly all. It was a culture shock for my kids everybody. Say where we at now you know but It's like one of those things where. You know you can't. You can't really keep asking somebody else to do something for you. Talk about that. You can do for yourself. You know so. That's pretty much. What is effort and there's not by myself we got. Hundreds of people that have really saw where we were coming from and. And you rebuild the whole neighborhood. You rebuild a whole community of people not to mention the school system and the schools that was everything is evolved around health. Good Health and education. At! So. We have some tremendous health programs that we were on education. was was the number one thing that we got involved and that was. The charter schools. And, so we have eight charter schools. And believe me. It's not an easy thing. It's not easy. It's GonNa take. It's GonNa, take years and years to reverse. This this consciousness that would then especially the African American community. And, but it's working. It can will work you know so. So, it's not it's not. It's not easy.

He's again. You know and. I couldn't see that far in the future did to figure out what vision you had to. Refurbish it and and restore it back to the what it is now like so from what year did you start to say that I'm GONNA rebuild. Well we we. Fourteen and fifteen blocks in south Philly or well, we well. It's we started like from From Eleven, Street. Always up to like twenty, four th street from South Street all we over Washington Avenue. That was the area. And within that area. There were. Blot vacant we at maps. We had like a war room. You know what I mean maps that every house. Every abandoned lot every school everything on on these on these maps. And what we did is came up with our plan. Plan was to be able to build a community. That, you could take an APP some open spaces. You know where you'd have some some gardens and have something open The schools! I mean it. This has been the hardest part is the schools. Education thing and What developing it like you just can't tell the city. I'm a mom. You've got to work with them. Yeah, you got to work with them. Even if it's a private school or well, these are charter schools, these public private schools, the problem with with private schools is economics of it. You know and And because many of our people don't have the money to pay to go to a charter school I mean to a private school. Yeah, so so we have. got a wonderful wonderful thing going and.

"The day four of few years. Now, we go out to Kenny G because we love him, and he's one of our favorite guests. He's been very good to the show better to the show. Then we deserve which which saxes at that. You were playing there is at your high school sacks. Or does the sacks that you're playing there have a name? This is the high school sex actually the same one. It's a soprano. Sax. It has no name. So there you go. So why is it that you're still playing your high school sex? I think it's just because you know, you blow something for forty years. You just have to stay together. I think that's the reason. It's fair enough. It's a great point. I go ahead as Kenny G says put it on the poll if you blow something for forty years. Do you have to stay together? How many what is your sex collection? Look like get it. Well, there's not much of a sex collection. I've got a soprano I've got an Alto. I've got a tenor. I've got some spares, but I I never used them. They're just sitting there, which is fine. So yeah, I mean, I've got the same sex as this one from high school and the other two or from just getting into college. So I've had them for decades have you ever lost or had one stolen? No, no, no, no, don't even say those words. Sorry. I sorry that I hurt your feelings. I wanna talk to you a little bit about how great you are at golf. I know we talked to you about that a good amount here. But do you have a proudest golfing victory? Do you have someone you've played against that you smoke that? You were like, okay. That was pretty cool. Actually. Yes. This summer. We there was this thing called a it was like a celebrity Ryder Cup. And there was twelve Americans. We went over to to Europe, and we played against twelve European celebrities, and I played against this guy that was clearly better than me. And I beat them and saw super happy about that. I want to go back to the sax for just a second. Hypothetically, if someone were to steal one of your saxes, hold it for ransom. How much would it be worth two five billion dollars? I'd need. All right. Good to know thanksgiving. Any Alice Cooper's is famous for being a a musician whose an excellent golfer. I'm wondering if you've ever run across him in in celebrity golfing. Absolutely. You know, Alison, I played together in the AT and T Pebble Beach many years in a row where we were partnered together, I think they wanted a longhairs to be in one group. And we were we had a great time. He's such a nice guy, by the way. I pretty sure I could take him in golf, if if you wanna know the truth, I'm curious, what's who's the celebrity? You can't take in Gulf like who do you know is better than you period? Jack wagner. He is good. Now that doesn't mean that doesn't mean I can't beat them..
