To be clear, it is not my intent to deride the Asian American community in any way, just to compare it to the achievements of the African American one. CF constantly shits on African American culture while praising Asian American culture. Since he also seems to like to talk about "results" - then let's see them. If we are so dysfunctional why are we out-performing them; this while also enduring a myriad of additional obstacles to our success?
African Americans are out-performing Asian americans???
We outperform them in politics, and representation across the board, but Asian Americans make more income than any other group including white americans. And they do excellent when it comes to education.
So they get good grades and get good jobs. Where is the impact of their achievement on American society? Again, I have no interest in denigrating the Asian community. CF makes the connection between culture and achievement. He constantly praises their culture and assassinates ours. I simply ask the question - if their culture is so wonderful and if culture and achievement are connected, then where is the impact in America of that superior culture?
CF likes their culture, I believe, precisely because they are not fully integrated into the mainstream of America. He would have that for us, no doubt.
You would rather have blacks unemployed,high murder rate, terrible test scores, ect, over not fully being integrated?? Hmm...
You missed the point. CF praises Asians because they have few expectations of America. In his mind they are "model minorities" because they are quiet and unobtrusive. African Americans built this country. We've been here longer than the average white person here. We have every reason to participate in all aspects of this country and have high expectations that it should work for us in the same way that it works for others.
