# All Democratic Senators voted for racial discrimination against Asians in higher education

Yes, you read it right: today, all Democratic Senators voted to allow racial discrimination against Asians in higher education. And yes, all Republican Senators voted against the discrimination.

The amendment, proposed by Republican Senator Ted Cruz and John Kennedy, states:

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no institution of higher education (as defined in section 102 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1002)) may receive any Federal funding if the institution has a policy in place or engages in a practice that discriminates against Asian Americans in recruitment, applicant review, or admissions.


Though all 48 Republican Senators voted for the amendment, it failed to pass, because all 49 Democratic Senators voted against it. You can go and look at the vote here.

Who are the real racists in America?
