The Rise of the “Anti-Model Minority Asians” (My New VDARE Column is Up!)

“Anti-Model Minority” Leftists Inventing an Anti-White Pan-Asian Identity
By Nicholas Stix

Asians have been often been held up as “the model minority [6]“—smart, hard-working, law-abiding and uncomplaining. But now a new generation of American-born Asians has arisen that denounces the “Model Minority” image as if it were something to be ashamed of….

East Asians have, on average, IQs about a half-standard deviation above that of whites (105-107 vs. 100. National averages: Chinese 105; Koreans 105; and Japanese 107.) East Asians are about a whole Standard Deviation above that of American “residents” in general (95).

And East Asians have been routinely discriminated against in college admissions, as have whites, because of college bureaucrats’ desire to make room for underperforming blacks and Hispanics

I don't hold much for the concept of racism (ie. people have always wanted to be part of a team - us against you) but anyway I was in Beijing a few weeks after Tiananman, staying at the Beijing Hotel. The whole Chinese economic reviva,l under Deng Xiaoping, was just underway, and lots of foreign operations were just setting up shop.

One night strolling down the main concourse of the hotel, which was about as wide as a two lane highway, I was hailed by a black American couple to join them for a drink. Somehow they spotted I was from back home - must have been the clothes. They were in China with Xerox and helping to establish the business in China.

They were very discouraged. They said that the Chinese were the most racist culture they had ever encountered, and had no doubt that they, the Chinese, thought Blacks were apes. Their words, not mine.
