    I told my kids not to be intelligent because where ever I look I see guys who went to better schools (undergrad) working for fellows who went to mediocre colleges. Most CEOs dont got to great schools for undergrad. They get good MBA degrees. I am telling my asian kids to not look or be smarter - told them to dumb themselves down and get into sales & marketing, business and finance, instead of engineering and medicine. Let see. They may be pre-inclined genetically to fail at my plan !! Honestly, this is a dumb video (like me, sorry) like meme about blood groups. Why am I wasting my time on this? I wanda ! :)

    Gosh I remember when I was 7-17 years old. Went back from school after 1 pm. Watch some tv for like 2 hours. Then from 3-5 i have to do my homework, from 5-7 sometimes i did sports, sometimes i got to go to tuition classes depending on the days. From 7-8 is dinner time. 8-10 i have to do revision (not homework). By the time weekends come I was so extremely happy because finally I have my break. My mom and dad forced me to do all this thing. We kind of poor back then and my parents have this fear that their kids will end up like them. They worked so hard to send me to different classes and make me excel in everything. I do thank them for that and I understand partly why they did that. But my childhood was a really no fun at all.

    If you deny Asian-Americans are not smarter academically why are they in 8 places above whites in incomes. Indian Americans had the highest income for 3+ decades. Now Harvard is downright discriminating against Asian-Americans because their parents have high expectations & they work their ass off. The Stanford lady is right Asian-Americans take in the facts while teachers unions are telling rest of the kids about some unproven abstract creativity. Rote memorisation with understanding makes recall an easy thing. Therefore the Asian-American high scores. Time for other ethnics to embrace these methods. Not all Asian-Americans are the same is actually proven to be fraudulent. Vietnamese refugees etc also have higher achievement

    It is not right on part of anyone to say that parent push Asian children to study harder. If you know the workcultures and lifestyles of developed countries and that in Asia even the child knows that a few years of hard work will land him a job in these dream location and his life will be better and he will have to work less and earn more. As far as measuring the intellectual capacity is concerned the only way developed countries measure it is thru exams. talent is useless if u cannot land urself in right place .

    One thing that is not often noted is that the immigration route for most Asians involves a tough selection process that happens, for example, in the admissions process to academic institutions in their countries of origin. The top graduates from the best Asian Bachelor's level courses are usually the ones who apply successfully for further studies in the USA. So the people who make it to the USA have already been skimmed off the top of the bell curve. Other major immigrant groups probably arrive through a less selective process. The effect of this filtering would persist perhaps for two or three generations raised in the USA.
    Of course, this fact operates to the detriment of the workforce back home, aka brain drain.

    They're smarter AND they study harder. You do not find average or below average IQ's in advanced placement classes. Intelligence is genetic. You will rise to the height of your intelligence through hard work, but you cannot raise your intelligence level. There are genetic differences in people, both individually, and across cultures. Nothing racist here. Just a statement of a given. A person with an IQ of 125 is more intelligent than a person with an IQ of 90 just as a person who is 7 feet tall stands a better chance of dunking a basketball than a person who stands at five feet. You have both nature and nurture working here. Just as physical differences appear across families and cultures, so do cognitive abilities.

    Regardless of your in America is literally free and it holds even truer when you are poor! It only takes but the first person in the family towards the step of breaking that vicious cycle of poverty! The issue here is that certain groups just does better overall and yes it has a lot to do with attitude, family and culture! There's really no room for any may be a tough road ahead but in the end you're the recipient of the award! Like I said...break that cycle and your kids, their kids, their kid's kid will be reap the reward of financial freedom. It's not my job to help other groups when your group clearly had many chance to do better but unwilling!

  • king_has_no_cloths

    do not fall for the popular. the smartest are still americans. asians still cant invent. because they have to learn what is first. And they do not have access to: SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE like the west. the critical need for right brain to create. 70% of indian men only see woman bereft of cloths after marriage( heard of 40 year old virgin?). A tad better in other asian countries. very very tight in muslim oriented countries. so their romance is only available in movies. So while they are damn good at solving problems, they are not damn good at creating problems. that is where YANKEE spirit comes inn. we cant have zuckers, jobs etc etc where something came up in a garage. the system is free and no limits. this triggers those ideas in the brain. unlike asian students who know how to crack a problem fast( they have no idea about creating one). you can see this issue in japan,china and even india. But next generation will slowly start inventing once they unlock the romance of the brain.
    to invent the left brain need to absolutely dirty. because when you go to work you are focused and not worried about money, woman etc etc. the left brain is content. no distraction for right brain! so until they learn to dirty the mind( organically) they cant invent. There are always exceptions but that is very very minuscule.
    both chinese and indian cultures have long way to go. And due to sheer population there is massive dog fight for resources. win or go home. there are 3 billion folks to feed for crying out loud compared to 350 mil in whole north america.
    And sheer population means everything is restricted and monitored. Finding love n sex and sex n love is harder than finding gold( diseases make it worse). one mistake you are done! no dance floor in india! they see woman dancing on the floor( banned), people lose control! i aint kidding! same goes to singapore, malaysia, indonesia and whole middle-east!no access to that KAT either( natural leave. well it got stigma)
    I am not talking about going cheap lay. I am talking about access to make the brain romantic( the most important parameter for invention and think out of the box) where america sends everybody packing! the west does not have those issues.
    so even today you still get those nerds from USA. the investment in research just cant be matched by any countries. the company funds are huge . the endowment of universities are out of this world.
    so basically it is like a factory. they make them ready for to work in big firms. so most of the stuff they learn is bereft of practical application( where american and later japan thumped one n all).
    indians or china does not have aston martins, lambhorg, ferrari even today. A curious mind to re-engineer is rampant. Also re-inventing the wheel is discouraged due to globalization. so you study what is there and try to do next thing. you have never tried to figure out what is.
    so that you cant get the next big thing. you can only do the derivative!
    china has done much better than india. in india the research is still very very poor. But despite that they churn out quality engineers.
    but by the time they come to states and work in corporations. they are in mid-20's and they have to coach themselves again to burst mid-night lamp to invent. that is where they miss out. to get there they have spent it all and now they just want cushy jobs.
    so the onus to invent still lives with crazy yankee or some scandinavian dude or some german!
    indians and chinese are still 100 years behind. so it will take some more time. right now they will master quicker than anybody-what is!
    you see despite all these gadjets: the antibodies are running out, cancer and stem research has barely progressed, no sight for aids cure etc etc. I can go on and on.
    brilliant people go to financial institutions for 365k base salary. unlike 65k for elite student at biotech and other industries. they are losing brilliant minds mostly to financial institutions. you can see the dichotomy. the stock market is all time high but the debt is all time high as well.
    And they dont square up!
    that's whats up!

    Hate to say this, but there are numerous studies that show that Asians are generally more intelligent than whites and blacks because of their larger brain/cranial size. Many people donโ€™t want to believe or say this, because that would be considered โ€œracistโ€, but the scientific studies and research papers (look up Professor Philip Rushton on USclip), confirm racial differences in cranial size and intelligence. Thatโ€™s the reality. Itโ€™s not intentionally racist to reveal or state this.

    Just coz u work yourself to the bone doesn't mean you are smart. It just means you are a hard worker and disciplined.
    Just because you figured a way to do well in "tests" doesn't mean you are intelligent.
    A real smart person is someone who barely studies and still does well- that is virtually unheard of in the asian community.
    And besides stem, what else do they do well in?
    Subjects that don't just require repetition, subjects that require real intelligence, creativity and critical thinking skills like humanities & the arts and even some sports etc they are no where to be found.

      I agree. I believe it's the culture. I also think some African Americans have a chip on their shoulder from being born in the U.S. They believe they're inferior because of the things they see and hear all the time so they give up on themselves and don't try at all. It's easier to think "I'm not smart so I'm not going to try" than to think "They say I'm not smart so let me work hard and prove them wrong".
