A Racial Comparison Needing Explanation …

Chinese Railroad Builders

Chinese Railroad Builders

Group One: American blacks. Originally imported as enslaved field workers. Presently occupy the lowest economic tier, provide the highest per capita percentages of criminals, abortions and single parent families. They have the least average ed education. Young blacks are recognized authors of “The Knockout game” and “Mobbing.” The also receive the largest proportion of government benefits and preferences. Exceptions have shown exemplary success as athletes, actors, businessfolk and intellectuals.

Group Two: American Asians. Originally imported as contract railroad labor. Segregated, confined in ghettos and with the same social status as the black slaves. Deported and forbidden to return along with any others in the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882.  Presently occupy the highest tier, provide the lowest percentage of criminals and rank above blacks and whites in education. Exhibit strong family values and few behavioral problems.

Group Three: White Americans. Rank slightly below Group Two on most characteristics, but well above Group One. This group was the creator of American wealth and its productive civil order now enjoyed by all three groups. Its present participation in what it created is now accorded an unearned privilege by many, on the assumption that white success was only available at the expense of blacks. The assertion is unsupported by any evidence but is perpetuated primarily by repetition as it is politically useful. Many of the black government-mandated preferences come at white and now increasingly at Asian, expense.

Unaddressed question: Given that blacks and Asians shared similar American histories at the hands of American whites at the same times, including segregation and bigotry, what explains the vast difference in their present social and economic positions in America today?

Are blacks significantly inferior in capabilities to whites and Asians, superior?

If capabilities are generally comparable, are black attitudes less productive and Asian attitudes more productive than those of whites?

Or are blacks somehow suppressed by whites while Asians are not? If that is the case, how is it that the Asians who were once treated the same as blacks, have escaped that today (without government help) while blacks have not?

Curious!

    Asians exhibit conservative values, meaning self reliance. Past immigrants got no welfare when they came.
    Blacks follow liberal policies, the world owes me a living because i am a victim. Liberal policies suported slavery in the past and present. Most children are smart enough to know if your parents are supporting you, you have to do what they say. Blacks havn’t been able to understand this.
