As a Chinese person, I think she is full of shiat. And she and her ilk are why suicide rates among Asian kids are so high.

Go away.
Please.
Just go away.

A Chinese racist? That's like trying to accuse the Japanese for being racist.

Which, my mother's people are...

If she's so superior, why is she constantly beset by the questionable cause family of fallacies?

Chinese are one of the top dogs.
The other seven are Jewish, Indian, Iranian, Lebanese-Americans, Nigerians, Cuban exiles and Mormons.
Clearly one of these groupings is a religion and by calling them 'cultural', never ethnic, racial or religious, Chau and her husband seek to avoid the hugely controversial criticism this would bring.


Fair claim in my book.  Different cultures do things differently, some better than others.

When it comes to parenting, most kids I knew who came from the backgrounds she mentioned had crazy overbearing parents who pushed them too hard.  Not quite my idea of stellar parenting.  I'd probably come up with a different list.
To their credit though, the kids who didn't grow up with severe mental health issues are now all successful doctors/lawyers and respected members of their communities.  Social Darwinism in action I guess.

The fact that people like this woman are famous and are also given a soap box on which to promote their tripe is proof that there is no God.

That's one definition of success I suppose....give birth to a litter of children, ram them thru a brutal training program and the ones that survive are given all the rewards that sucess brings. But..dont the parents still have a responsibility to the kids that don't make the cut? I guess we could do as the Spartans did and abandon the shattered twisted gibbering husks of failed kids on a mountaintop to die a slow death from exposure, but I think we'd also lose the ability to claim we were in any way civilized.

She chooses three ethnic cultures which put a very high emphasis on success and five repressive societies that would count their blessings to be here.

She makes a fair point

Huh.  I've been fairly successful in life and my mom wasn't a raging coont.

Can't explain that.
 
2014-01-05 10:48:34 PM
And of course she and her husband are both among the "superior" groups.  Color me shocked.

2014-01-05 11:13:17 PM
I love that she lists having a sense of superiority as one of the things that makes these groups successful.  Because we all know that one ethnic group feeling superior to others always works out so well for everyone.
 
2014-01-05 11:19:42 PM
I don't think it should come as a surprise to anyone that this woman is a horrible person.

You just described two populations that are rife with substance abuse problems and that's just the appetizer.

She's just pissed off because she didn't have any sons.

Well, for them at any rate.

We're still talking about Rome as if they weren't a bunch of psychopathic, slave raping, rapacious warmongers so hopped up on unwatered wine and lead poisoning they didn't even care as they blighted the entirety of Europe repeatedly for more than a 1000 years with blood, pain, and death. Why? Because they wrote stuff down like "Rome is a pretty cool guy. He kills Gauls and doesn't afraid of anything." in their books and those same books became the foundation of our history.
 
2014-01-05 11:50:17 PM
Big deal some dumb broad thinks she is special. Put her to work at a mine, farm, oil patch or any other area where she has to produce results as opposed to running her mouth and we will see how superior she is
 
2014-01-05 11:51:12 PM
"A superiority complex: Chau believes that any cultural group who innately thinks they are just better than others has an advantage."

So...some sort of master race...rule for a thousand years?

Well of course the Chinese and Japanese believe each other to be subhuman ogres...

Can we at least agree that some groups of people are WORSE, though? I'm thinking of cross-burning trailer trash meth heads who are Christian in name only, for a start.

No, this is Tiger's mom, or something. Writing a book about how to raise a pro-athlete, probably. Step 1) get knocked up by a black dude

Stop with the "racial" racebaiting.

She is talking about cultures, which have nothing to do with race, and their rate of success, which is quantifiable and undeniable.

Lebanese Americans are, as a group, the most successful people in the country and it is foolish to refuse to question why.

Some ideas work better than others, stop trying to use "equality" to explain peoples mediocrity.
 
2014-01-05 11:54:46 PM
I've read a couple of excerpts from the book, and all I can say about that article is that doesn't really get what she and her husband wrote right.

This.

The dysfunction I had with my mom, she inherited from hers and so on. It ended last month.

Being critical of your child is one thing if accompanied by constructive support; but praise was few and far between. Then she wondered why I didn't seek out her company as I got older. I needed to pursue my dreams without her. So much needless friction. My sister never recovered to be her own independent adult.

When your culture eats its own young, it's time to get another culture.

Chinese, Indian, Iranian, and Nigerian all have way too many cultures to be lumped into one.  When you don't break that down, you're consciously or unconsciously using ethnic or racial groupings.

When they came for the communists, I said nothing, for I was not a communist.
When they came for the trade unionists, I said nothing, for I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the crazy people, I said nothing, for I was not a crazy person, but they said, no, no, you're in the right line alright, just keep going down that way...

I'd have to see some excepts from the book before I condemn it.  People tend to get kneejerk  angry over silly things, and I don't trust such people's opinions in general.

Certainly some people claim American culture is inferior to some other comparative culture x.  This is a direct statement that some culture x is superior.  And to be honest it is often the self-identified enlightened progressives who make such claims.  So apparently they  do believe a national culture can be superior to others.    Many on fark for example.

It's PC for me to question those attacking her, sinceI'm part of the inferior cultures in her opinion, lol.

Just because you look sound and smell like someone does not actually mean you are anything like them.


lumping people together by culture is stupid. Look at your old white straight conservative neighbour to your right and your gay liberal young neighbour to your right.

Same birthplace culture religion and upbringing.
yet totally different in every way.

IIRC, her first book was about her transformation from being an overbearing biatch of a parent to someone who learned from her mistakes over time becoming more mature, and less overbearing in her parenting style, and the Wall Street Journal excerpt was taken way out of context.

...so I'm going to take what's written here in the Mail with a grain of salt large enough to satisfy a horse's licking needs.

Fair number of folks in Hong Kong believe in some variation of what Tiger Mom preaches even before Tiger Mom became known - both the locals and a good number of the foreign expats. I also have in-laws like this. The whole overriding desire for money, academic/career success, etc., at the expense of normal social/family relationships.

And such attitudes go hand in hand with racist attitude toward various other Asians and ethnicities.

It's really quite unpleasant to talk to such people.
