#1 That may be true, but their success may also be a result of what they [Asian-Americans] do not have; namely, “leaders” who tell them that the deck is so stacked against them that they cannot rise, or at least not without depending on “leaders.”

Not all African-Americans buy into the race hustlers. For some, the American Dream is alive for them and they realize what it takes to realize it. They realize the American Dream is only an opportunity and not a guarantee.

Conversely, we know has a woman who happens to be African-American. This woman harbors many myths about white people. This particular woman thinks white people get ahead by taking from the poor, having doors opened for them, not having to work, not having to sacrifice, never working hard, knowing the right person, or inheriting money that was taken from someone else. She has not worked most of her life and has a rather jaundiced view of white folks. Unfortunately, I think her view is all too common. I wonder how she explains Obama.

My family was extremely poor although I don't think we ever bought into that concept of institutionalized poverty--that just didn't exist at the time. I followed the the Asian-American path early on as did many others--hard work, education, more hard work, more education and then more hard work. The road was often bumpy but the bumps were usually of my own making.

#3 It's the culture, and it eats kids up.

I know a lady who immigrated from Ghana. She worked like a dog to get a nice house in a nice neighborhood. Her son grew up here. He's a useless street yo.
