The writer of the NYT’s project 1619, Nikole Hannah Jones took to Twitter in a ludicrous argument about school demographics and has now declared herself the ultimate authority on deeming what or who is a minority.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author argued that Asian people aren’t “people of color” because she didn’t like the fact a school had a majority Asian student body.
“Also, we need to call out how disingenuous it is to talk about specialized being majority POC[people of color] when she means Asian. I wish we had the clip of when I told her it seems like as a public defender she is fighting to keep the children of the people she represents in court out of her children’s schools.”
Below is the thread for context, Hannah-Jones is speaking with Maud Maron who is running for city council in New York City they are discussing NYC schools.
“When people say I’m nervous that (integration) is going to result in my kid getting a less good education, you have to take that concern as a valid concern — even if you think it’s racist, and it may be.” @MaudMaron to @nhannahjones https://t.co/MM6YbPJa3Z pic.twitter.com/hrhN58cPn7

Unreal, she doesn’t like the fact that someone pointed out that since a school’s student body was mainly Asians so she proclaimed that Asian’s aren’t “people of color.”
Bonchie from Redstate who discovered the post expounded:
It’s almost as if she views race as a construct that she can arbitrarily use to fit her ideology at any given moment. If a school is majority Asian and doing really well, then those people aren’t “real” minorities anymore. That allows the grift to continue indefinitely. The New York Times should probably reflect on what exactly they are enabling here by making her the de facto editor of their newspaper. They won’t though, as they are all in on this nonsense.
More insanity from the New York Times.
