THE 8 RACES THAT DO BEST?


Padma Lakshmi, Indian-born American cookbook author, actress, model and TV host.

Americans from India earn almost twice as much as the average American.

Chinese-American children dramatically outperform white American children in school tests.

American Jews have been awarded more than a third of the Nobel prizes given to Americans.

In the UK, Indians are more upwardly mobile than Britons overall.

In the UK, children of Nigerian origin perform better than British children overall.

Indonesians - not rich, but generally happy.

Racial characteristics?

Now, what I have noticed is that in Malaysia you get the Chinese Malays, an often unhappy and unfriendly bunch, and the ordinary Malays, a generally very happy and very friendly bunch (apart from the few mad Islamists and the upper class snobs).

The Chinese Malays generally earn a lot more than the ordinary Malays, and generally do better at school; but would you not prefer to be happy and friendly?


Jed Rubenfeld and Amy Chua

In 'The Triple Package', Amy Chua (Chinese) and her husband, co-author Jed Rubenfeld (Jewish) examine why it is that eight groups seem to do so well in America.

These 8 groups are:

Jews, Indians, Chinese, 
Iranians, Lebanese, Nigerians, 
Cubans  and Mormons

Tiger Mom: Some cultural groups are superior


Carnegie and Rockefeller. Chua and Rubenfeld forget that the Scots and Germans run much of America

According to Chua and Rubenfeld, the eight groups have three features in common: 

(1) feelings of superiority,

(2) feelings of insecurity and

(3) 'impulse control', which means 'grit', which means not giving up easily.



Chua, a law professor at Yale, sounds like a typical Chinese parent.

Which means she sounds like the father of Frederick the Great, or the father of Adolf Hitler, or Barbara Bush the mother of George W Bush?

1. Think of 'Feelings of Superiority'.

Think of Jews killing Palestinians, Indian Hindus killing Indian Moslems, Iranian Shias killing Iraqi Sunnis, Lebanese Christians killing Lebanese Moslems, and so on.

2. Think of 'Insecurity'.

Think of severe emotional abuse in childhood.

Think of Frederick the Great, Adolf Hitler or George W Bush.



3. Think of 'Impulse Control' or 'grit' or 'determination'.

Number three may have some validity.

Headmasters of international schools may tell you that the white American kid is not doing well because his mother is always out partying and his father is planning his fifth divorce.

Whereas the Nigerian or Cuban kid comes from a happy family in which the Mum and dad keep an eye on manners and homework.


Italian immigrants.

Immigrants into the USA tend to be adventurous people with a lot of grit.

However, when it comes to the third generation of the immigrant family, things usually start to go wrong.

The kids of the third generation have become Americanised and they start to go astray.

Americans are totally spoiled and assume entitlement for being white Americans so why put out any effort? It's not even our fault, it's by design from our handlers.

Interesting, but these are not races or racial groups. Within your usual good work you are propagating complete nonsense, please brush up on what the term "race" actually means.
You have described Jewish-American as a race, neither Jewish, nor American has any racial content. American {Ashkenazi} Jews are simply Europeans.

"American Jews have been awarded more than a third of the Nobel prizes given to Americans."

Such is the power of controlling access.

For Aangirfan to write this shockingly FALSE tale of nothingness is rather sad. ALL the above posters are CORRECT. America REMAINS the absolute standard of the world despite all the problems of Zionist infiltration. NONE of the "superior" nations mentioned; India, China, Israel, etc., are places to live in happiness. Americans are VICTIMS of external and internal pressures that are difficult to resist; and it is starting to show. After welcoming and tolerating these so-called "superior races" America deteriorates at an ever greater rate. Multi-culturalism is DEATH.

Stting the obvious without explanation produces misconceptions.

Indians, Chinese, Iranians, Lebanese, Nigerians, and Cubans in the U.S. represent a highly selective class of immigrants. The U.S. gets the best, brightest, and most adventurous from these countries. It's not a cross section, it's a mobile elite. Of course they're superiod.

U.S. Jews have always been a very small, highly focused group that values education and achievement.

While these groups are more successful than the larger reference group, 250 million plus other Americans, their success comes from selection through the requirments of immigration.

Mormons are another story. But Amy Chua is grossly misleading by leaving out the selection of the best to come to the U.S. Her intellectual error shows that the theory is not universal. And, it makesk her highly offensive.

Dear Anonymous 7.44,

When the white Europeans arrived in America and killed off lots of native American Indians, that was the start of multi-culturalism.

"America REMAINS the absolute standard of the world" in terms of bloody fascism.

No sane person would want to live in the USA.
