NY Elite Tests Favor Asians?

A legal complaint was filed against NY using a single test for admission to Elite Public Schools in NY. The population is for all ages, but it still gives a general idea. In the article on the legal complaint, it does not mention which race is over represented - it is not White. I also don't know that much the location of racial groups in NYC, which may have some impact on admission.

Admissions - I created the table based on the data from the articles below, plus the Racial make up of New York City per Wikipedia.

Stuyvesant offered admission to:
9 black students; 24 Latino students; 177 white students; and 620 students who identify as Asian.

  Qty % Admit % Population NYC
Black 9 1% 26.6%
Latino 24 3% 27%
White 177 22% 44.7%
Asian 620 77% 13%
Native American 0 0%  
  830    

Bronx Science offered admission to:
 25 black students - 3%
54 Latino students - 7%
239 white students - 30%
489 Asian students - 60%
3 American Indian/Alaskan Native students

  Qty % Admit % Population NYC
Black 25 3% 26.6%
Latino 54 7% 27%
White 239 30% 44.7%
Asian 489 60% 13%
Native American 3 0%  
 Total 810    


Brooklyn Tech offered admission to:
110 black students; 134 Latino students; 451 white students; 960 Asian students; and 5 American Indian/Alaskan Native students.

  Qty % Admit % Population NYC
Black 110 14% 26.60%
Latino 134 17% 27%
White 239 30% 44.70%
Asian 489 60% 13%
Native American 5 1%  
  977
