jiping...

It's one thing to compare it to the racial quotas or discrimination that took place in the US and other countries. Your critics aren't pro-discrimination. Many of us are extremely offended by the Nazi comparison though given the results of the Nazi racism. Is Harvard going to construct gas chambers on Harvard Yard and burn minority-owned and written books during their own version of Kristallnacht? If the answer is "no" then a comparison to Nazis is offensive and dangerous hyperbole.
The question needs to be examined in the context of history and civilization.

1930s was not a nice time. In the United States, Women just started to vote and Blacks were still segregated. The bar for human rights was pretty low.
Nazi went even further and actually committed genocide.

The bar should not be held this low in today's society.
Harvard doesn't have to build a gas chamber to be Nazi, and likewise EU Neo-Nazis don't have to mass kill people to prove their identity.

If you are so offended by my wording, I will change it to "Some Ivy AOs are Neo-Nazis."

You simply don't understand these words and related contexts well enough to use them here.

I'm against Harvard's anti-Asian and geographical biases. However, comparisons to NAZIism and Neo NAZIism are nothing short of foolish. Harvard's admission policies are dishonest and racially biased for sure but that's it.

I'm pro Harvard's right to have racial and geographical preference in admission policies, as long as they can keep it public and transparent.

I'm against their disrespectful propaganda on traits of certain race and mixed-race, and I believe that's Neo-Nazi.

You may disagree but that's it.
