jake_lex: 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.


Meh.  It's basic philosophy.  I think therefore I am.  Having a sense of superiority isn't the same as lacking humility.  Chuck Yeager knew he was an exceptional pilot(read his biography), but he's grounded enough to have humility and not be Iceman from Top Gun

Chinese student pilots will memorize the entire pilot's operating handbook of a 777...They will stay up for three days learning every single federal aviation administration regulation and be able to quote them back to you. But they will still fail to shoot a decent visual approach, because that's not something that you can memorize or let a machine complete. They are masters of rote learning but often fail at application and correlation.

The work ethic she preaches is admirable and often lacking in modern American society but her parenting advice will not lead to innovation but rather a society of copycat automatons. (Sort of like modern China...go figure.)

I bet any music her children play is technically perfect, but lacking any soul or emotion whatsoever.

/I know the Asiana flight was not piloted by Chinese....

hardinparamedic: 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.


No, it is proof that people are morons and will pay to read crap written by obnoxious, manipulative twat cheese.

Indian here. I am surprised that a Chinese person acknowledged us in a superior people list. We've made it baby.

The problem I have with this list is the omission of Germans. Yep, the country which practically gave the world modern engineering and whose scientists made NASA is missing from the list. That's all I need to infer that this is nothing more than an opinion piece. Her end game isn't book sales in US, she is going for the bigger Asian market in China + India. Create a controversy here, and sell in Asia. Not a bad idea at all

I mean it's idk I think she might have a point. My family's most common topic of conversation is majors and careers rather than football or whatever white people talk about. My Korean and Jewish friends fit in very well with my family because they also talk about and have opinions about these things and everyone in my family is highly educated and almost all successful

I don't know how she measures success, but any metric that doesn't include hot circus-quality sex is clearly meaningless.  I've farked women from 4 of her groups, and only the Iranian was worth a damn (and even that was hit and miss).

Heheheh. This is so great. I look forward to the tumblrs responding to this.

She has a point about immigrants being tremendously smart and dedicated, however. They know the gift they've been given and they aren't going to waste it. Us born into the first world just don't appreciate it.

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.

I hate to break it to you, but civilization, technology and our current standard of living have come about because many of our ancestors did some pretty shiatty things. And the people the Romans conquered weren't all flower children standing in a circle singing about peace and love when the Romans swooped in and conquered them. (I suppose you think Avatar was some kind of "based on a true story updated to a futuristic setting" movie.)

I should introduce her to some of my most successful friends. Just to see the look on her face when they all announce they don't think they're superior to anyone and their success has depended as much on things totally out of their control ie luck as it has anything they've done or how hard they've worked.

But to be fair, your "most successful" friends are probably just fellow layabouts whose 'luck' was getting injured and being able to sue someone or get on disability, or simply fortuitiously finding a good spot to find returnable bottles or panhandle.

It's a knee-jerk critique of ancient Rome's failing if it were a modern state. Compare the America to Rome and you'll be greeted with sonnets of Rome's progressive feats of roads, sewers, law, and other cultural advancements made possible through strong government and taxes.

FTA: "'That certain groups do much better in America than others - as measured by income, occupational status, test scores and so on - is difficult to talk about,' the authors write."

I think it's a fair observation that some cultures place value on things that help members excel using this particular set of metrics.  Are these really good metrics though?  I don't question the worth of being successful and having a decent income but it shouldn't be an obsession that interferes with your ability to be happy, have friendships, and appreciate the good things in life.  It may be harder to measure but I suspect people who can balance these things out likely lead more fulfilling lives than the min/maxers.

Of course she's right. Certain ethnic groups excel in professional or technical pursuits, because their cultures place a high degree of value in that.

It doesn't necessarily result in an overly stressful life, however.

The problem is it is politically incorrect to note such easily observable factors on a broad basis. See the charges of "racism" here and elsewhere, or the silly suggestion that such broadly observed tendencies are based on luck.

Yes, many people in the groups she cites are financially sucessful/highly educated, but what about the cultures they come from, ie the people who didn't immigrate?

Are the majority of cubans in cuba, the iranians in iran and the nigerians in nigeria super sucessful? It seems like many of them are stuck in poverty, are highly uneducated, and have few options.

The fact remains that people who immigrate tend to be strivers of above average education is common sense, and may not speak to a cultural superiority at all. They are just the minority of their country who were able to get out.
