(The New York Times)   Asians are 14% of the city's students but win 60% of the seats to elite high schools in a competitive exam. Do other ethnic groups A) Study harder, B) Learn from Asian culture, or C) File a lawsuit?   (nytimes.com ) divider line

On the bright side Blacks and Hispanics excel at getting into prison. Everyone is good at something.

Let me break it down for yall.

What would you choose as a more pleasant past time. I will let you fill in the ethnic blanks.

Sitting on the stoop burning a blunt and looking at phat azzes or studying?

Sitting in your card burning a joint looking at chicas con culazos. or studying?

Working in mom and pops 110 degree laundry/kitchen looking at girls with no asses or reading a book in a quiet air conditioned library?

It is hardly any wonder why asian kids rise to the top. I blame it on lack of good weed and flat asses.

aesirx: Asians earn their good grades. they work their butts off. it's not like the teacher is spotting all of the Asians, giving them an automatic A+, and giving everyone else C's.

fourth of all, have they seen any studies on the rate of suicide, depression, and burn out that Asian high schoolers are facing? it's disproportionately high.


Yeah, my upbringing was a recipe for "success" as Randians define it, but I'm not sure I'd call it a recipe for happiness. I spend most of my twenties with a bit of a complex, I have very few fond childhood memories and no desire for children of my own. I'm better off financially AND stress-wise than most of my peers, but I don't really like how hard I had to work to get there. This is the richest country in the history of the world; why did I have to work 80-hour weeks just to pay off student loans??

cman: Yeah, fark that.

Merit alone should be the deciding factor. These Asian kids may be smarter than us white folk, and for that they need to have their intelligence groomed for better things. Forcing white/black/hispanic into these rooms just because they are not as represented is idiotic for our future.


Yeah, god forbid minorities spend time studying or working hard for an education instead of robbing a 7 eleven or filing lawsuits.

Responsibility for our own actions, how the fark does it work?

ComicBookGuy: Chariset: Wait: so white people want... affirmative action?

You are an idiot.


Give him break. Most modern "social justice" movements are based on the concept of "white privilege" . If this is concept is shown to be false (or even fundamentally flawed), then all those Master of Gender Studies degrees are essentially useless. Chariset is merely trying to perpetuate the "white privilege" stereotype and thus protect his educational investment.

Hmm. Perhaps it is time to close our borders. Let these immigrants fix their own countries instead of fleeing.
Also love TFAs spin on what has been previously called outright racism in academia. Just wow. It is like sometimes there is this massive gorilla in the room but no one wants to talk about it... for centuries.

jso2897: Chillax, everybody - the "effect" will be gone in one generation. The mediocrity of American culture conquers all.


It probably takes about 2-3 generations for it to truly die off, but the problem* is that we can still get a lot of first generation people here. If the best, brightest, and/or most motivated are the ones that come here and leave their shiatty country, we can expect that they'll work hard and motivate their kids. When those kids grow up and succeed, they'll still have the grandparents around to help drive those ideals into their children. However, it's this group that will, after being fully-exposed to the entitlement mentality that permeates Americans, want "better" for their children. Those kids will have everything handed to them and end up being fully Americanized. They'll get degrees in psychology or other liberal arts - but fully expect to make as much as an engineer or chemist.

Dr.Mxyzptlk.: WTF. It thought all these exams were cultural bias in favor of the white man who designed the test. How are these Asians slipping through our net of lies and trickery ?

For decades Black leaders and others told us there were inherent racist elements in testing. How western -Caucasian people approach problems . Africans were more verbal with a rich history of oral history....and bunch of other pseudo intellectual bullshiate passed around the table with babble head nodding whites agreeing.

And in the background the Asians were winning spelling bee's with parents who barley spoke English.
MIT became known as Made In Taiwan....on and on while this myth of flawed testing was pass on to the public.

White people love Asians. Hell look at that the intermarriage rates. Much less positive cultural images.
You farkers need to get pass the "white " in all the root cause of problems.

Unlike Al Sharpton (MSNBC host) who many time called them "interlopers" and countless attacks on Korean grocery stores in the hood.

Maybe you can talk the Asian immigrants to break up their families and have the kids raised by single mothers and absent fathers. Then make sure to teach them that success is selling out their own and acting white. Then we can get those test scores down

Or we can just scream white racism and adjust the numbers to guaranteeing an quota in schools and business.

//sick of Travis Smiley types and their stupid excuses for destructive behavior.


White men marry asian women, you don't see a lot of white women marrying asian men.
