Oh well. It takes all kinds, I guess.|
Hey freak, for the lucky Chinese Americans, the glass is NOT even half empty - it is 3/4 full!! The opportunities are unprecedented. They excel in just about everything they try - whether professional, business, or investments. Sports and politics are about the only areas in which the Chinese are under represented. But you don't need those to lead happy, prosperous lives.
I have been told over and over again by my American Chinese friends how it is so much LESS competitive in America - it is easy to beat the whites in just about any endeavor, from kindergarten on up. Of the top 1% in SAT scores (and thus college entrance in the best colleges), about half of them are Chinese!! Yes, there are still glass ceilings. But the Chinese are adaptable, and MANY start their own businesses, and even benefit from the minority protection rules in government and major corporation procurement programs. With the manufacturing support in China, and their relationships going back to the old country, the average Chinese American has TWICE the resources available at his disposal. Also, from the time he was born, the Chinese American male is taught about how important it is to succeed in life - even whilst the average white kid wastes his time on TV games and Pokemon. The only "white" group has has a chance to compete with the Chinese American are the Jewish folks. And the results are clear - Chinese Amreicans, those who were born in the U.S., make the highest average of all income groups (Jews were not counted, unfortunately) by ethnicity according to the 2000 census. It is the Chinese American's own game to lose.
This "Roger" is a Dick, if he fails to see how good the Chinese Americans have it.
