Statement on the Anti-Asian Comments of University of Pennsylvania Law Professor Amy Wax

Sanford Heisler Sharp condemns University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School professor Amy Wax’s recent comments on “The Glenn Show” podcast. Professor Wax’s comments are rooted in racism and bigotry and perpetuate vicious and harmful stereotypes against the AAPI community and all minorities. At a time when anti-Asian sentiment is on the rise, along with an increasing number of violent hate crimes against the AAPI community, such reckless comments only incite more hate. We call on the University of Pennsylvania to hold Professor Wax accountable for her indefensible comments. As our fight against racial bias continues every single day, we stand strong with the AAPI community and condemn racism in all its forms.
