Ashley Ahn // Penn Law prof Amy Wax claims America is ‘better off with more whites and fewer nonwhites’

“The position [is] that our country will be better off with more whites and fewer nonwhites,” Wax said.

Wax claimed that her statements were not racist because she opposes nonwhite immigrants for their culture rather than their biology, Vox reported.

Wax positively cited Donald Trump’s description of non-European countries as “shithole countries,” according to Vox, and argued for a “cultural distance” approach to immigration that “preserves the United States as a Western and First World nation.”

Wax also cited her 2018 paper on giving immigrants preference based on their ethnonational background and quoted John Derbyshire, a writer who wrote to his white children to avoid places where black people congregate. Vox reported that Derbyshire was soon fired from his job at National Review as a result.
