The Brookings Institute is a left-wing think tank that nevertheless does some research that’s interesting to conservatives. In a recent article, they talk about a disturbing difference between children of different races. Specifically, black children do far less homework than Asian children.
Here’s the article from the Brookings Institute:
In this blog post, we will look at time spent outside of school–specifically time spent doing homework–among different racial and socio-economic groups. We will use data from the American Time Use Survey (ATUS) to shed light on those differences and then attempt to explain those gaps, using ATUS data and other evidence.
And here’s what they found:
So, how come Asians do so much better than blacks?
This article is written by the far-left radical Nicholas Kristof, writing in the radically-leftist New York Times. (A former newspaper)
Asians don’t blame other people for their own success of failure, they think that their outcomes are based on how hard they work:
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… 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.”
Asians also believe in keeping two biological parents in the home:
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.
Do black women believe those things? Not the ones I’ve met.
And not according to statistics:
So how will we help black students to do better in school? We need two parents in every home. And school choice, obviously. We have to let black children escape the failing unionized public schools that only want to teach atheism, premarital sex, evolution, global warming alarmism, transgenderism, gay marriage, socialism, BLM and CRT instead of math, science, technology and engineering. I don’t think that public school teachers can do any math, science, engineering or technology, so how could they teach it.
Also, we need to start 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?
