Reply to "Not Modeling The "Model": The New White Flight"

the only thing i want to add here is if asians are so intelligent, disciplined and organized why is the continent of asia so screwed up.

when asians come to this country, their bond to family, culture and community is quite profound. academic mediocrity or failure is seen as shameful...nothing less than excellence is acceptable. and i know this from relating to asian people i have known. for example, have an indian friend, who had one average semester back when we were in college. he was born in america and thus americanized so excessive partying, hanging out and cramming for examinations was the norm. when his mother saw the grades, she said he was a shame not only to family but to india. needless to say, my friend excelled from there.

black americans don't operate that way and to be honest, i wish we did...we would be better off (at least academically) for it.
