If white Americans are racist, how come Asians do so well?

Asians marry before they have children, so the kids have two parents

THIS is an awkward question, but here goes: Why are Asian-Americans so successful in America?

It’s no secret that Asian-Americans are disproportionately stars in American schools, and even in American society as a whole. Census data show that Americans of Asian heritage earn more than other groups, including whites. Asian-Americans also have higher educational attainment than any other group.

[…]Does the success of Asian-Americans suggest that the age of discrimination is behind us?

A new scholarly book, “The Asian American Achievement Paradox,” by Jennifer Lee and Min Zhou, notes that Asian-American immigrants in recent decades have started with one advantage: They are highly educated, more so even than the average American. These immigrants are disproportionately doctors, research scientists and other highly educated professionals.

It’s not surprising that the children of Asian-American doctors would flourish in the United States. But Lee and Zhou note that kids of working-class Asian-Americans often also thrive, showing remarkable upward mobility.

Part of the problem is that non-Asian Americans take a passive view of life, believing that high grades come to those who are naturally smart – not to those who work harder:

There’s also evidence that Americans believe that A’s go to smart kids, while Asians are more likely to think that they go to hard workers. The truth is probably somewhere in between, but the result is that Asian-American kids are allowed no excuse for getting B’s — or even an A-. The joke is that an A- is an “Asian F.”

And, as the image I posted above shoes, Asian girls are given boundaries on their sexuality, causing them to choose men who will be good husbands and fathers, and making those men marry before being given sex – factors proven to improve marital stability:

Strong two-parent families are a factor, too. Divorce rates are much lower for many Asian-American communities than for Americans as a whole, and there’s evidence that two-parent households are less likely to sink into poverty and also have better outcomes for boys in particular.

So, let’s be real – if white racial discrimination held non-white groups back, then Asians would be in the same situation as blacks and hispanics. But Asians are not being held back, because of their strong marriage culture and focus on hard work. Whites don’t hold anyone back. This is just a myth that Democrats use to make blacks (and hispanics) think that they need government to save them from the bogeyman. Asians don’t need saving, and neither should any other non-white groups.

We can start by shaming women of all races who choose to have sex with men who are not ready for marriage. There are lots of men out  there who are willing to marry, and that should be what women are looking for most if all in a man. That change alone will probably erase most of the achievement gap between different racial groups. Does anyone have the courage to tell young women (of all races) to be more responsible with their sexual decisions? The out-of-wedlock birth rate for blacks is over 70%. This causes massive poverty and crime in the black community. Does anyone have the courage to tell blacks that they are doing this to themselves?

  1. By way of our government’s policies, men are replaced by the state as provider. That makes the marriage relationship (home) irrelevant to a woman’s life. And, guess what — women are normal, they’re sinners and pick the easiest route. Thus, no need to have a man in the house, they’ve got the worriless state.

    Honest, wise black commentators say that as well. Check Tommy Sotomayor as one.


  2. “And, as the image I posted above shoes, Asian girls are given boundaries on their sexuality, causing them to choose men who will be good husbands and fathers…”
    …and therefore provide good genetics to the offspring, resulting in success. Genes for personality and intelligence have been found. Why does no one else come out and say this? This blog post almost gets there in the last paragraph, but not quite.
    You can spawn with someone from jail and expect offspring in Yale. All the hard work in the world won’t help if you lack the intellectual firepower to begin with.
    Below is an article from this past may about “40 more” intelligence genes that were discovered. If we’re going to assess mates on the basis of qualities like height, athletic ability, or even religion, why is this very important inherited characteristic never discussed?


    1. *You *can’t* spawn with someone from jail and expect offspring in Yale.
      My mistake. Blame it on flawed genetics!


  3. asian are known as the model minority.
    The model minority stereotype is considered detrimental to relevant minority communities because it is used to justify the exclusion of minorities in the distribution of assistance programs, both public and private, as well as to understate or slight the achievements of individuals within that minority. Furthermore, the idea of the model minority pits minority groups against each other by implying that non-model groups are at fault for falling short of the model minority level of achievement and assimilation.


    1. Is the implication here that non-‘model minorities’ are incapable of succeeding on their own accord? If Asians are experiencing far more success with their model than say, Blacks are, wouldn’t the less successful one benefit from copying the one that works?


      1. asians tend to assimilate more than hispanics and african americans. I do admire their work ethic ,however because of their hardcore work ethic, its does drain and it causes problems later in life.


  4. As an Asian there are white racists. Asian do well because Asian as a whole work and study harder than whites, you have to be more valuable as a person to get the job. You also forgot there is a “diversity” required in job hiring so white men has a disadvantage where as blacks, especially black women has the most advantage.
    I had a friend of mine who was denied a job because he wasn’t white. He was told they would never hire a colored person (He is Asian btw). There’s a lot of passive aggressive racism. I have been bullied, lied to, denied benefits/programs and other things. To claim racism doesn’t exists because Asian do well is not the truth.

    There are blacks that believe they are oppressed. Black men as a whole make less money due to single mother raising them. A black boy raised by a father is more likely to make more money than raised by a single mother. This really has nothing to do with race.
