Asian Americans: Guilty of Success in America

Michelle Malkin on how the definition of what constitutes a "minority" group is now purely ideological:

Out of political expedience, you see, "minority" has been redefined by racial-preference promoters. It is no longer an objective statistical category, but an ideological status. Members of minority groups who have overcome barriers to success -- and who oppose being tallied by race -- are no longer viewed as people with valuable heritages, diverse life experiences, or raw memories of discrimination and prejudice. They are effectively "white" and simply don't count.
