    Asians have faced fierce discrimination in America, but this has not stopped them from getting ahead. In 1790, Congress denied citizenship for anyone who was not a “free white person.” In 1870, blacks could become citizens, but not Asians. In 1879, California continued to deny the vote to “natives of China, idiots and insane persons.”

    Some people have argued that Asian immigrants have the advantage of starting out fresh when they get to America, whereas blacks must constantly drag the baggage of slavery and oppression behind them.

    This obviously does not apply to the descendants of Asians who came to America more than a century ago practically in bondage and who, in many cases, were treated as badly as blacks. If racism is such an obstacle to success in America, why have Asians overcome it while blacks and Hispanics still suffer?

    -Because most asians are coming from an environment of learned self-sufficiency or strong honoring work ethic. By the time they get here, it is just a matter of ignoring socialist agenda and hand outs to become what every other citizen can become.

    The others see a system of handouts in America and in most cases have not had the same experience in self-sufficiency or discipline the other immigrants may have had.

    You cant seem to understand how responsibility, honor, respect, discipline, and economics works in society yourself so you pin it on skin color.

    That enviroment that Asians "come" from, is the environment that Asians created.

    Go watch "Hidalgo." Breeding is nothing. Attitude is everything, and attitude is often a product of environment.

    The entire science of genetics, beginning with Darwin, says you are dead wrong. Asians do well in white societies because they are related to us quite closely. Asians evolved in similar climates and our population groups are separated by about 40,000 years, as opposed to about 100,000 years between blacks and whites. Asians have high IQs, often higher than whites'. They are less likely than whites to be sexually irresponsible. That does not mean I want to live with Asians, but these are the facts.

    Hidalgo is pure Hollywood fantasy. Or, propaganda, really.

    This review is GREAT.

    This one's OK, not as good as Bowman's.

    Since I am entirely capable of disproving your "Darwinian" point, not to mention any real reliability of the entire science in general, how about showing your proof?

    I was going to post the entire text of Origin of the Species, but Jim would've been upset about the use of space. You asked for back-up, and I provided some. If you don't want to read it, fine. Beyond that, I don't know what I can do for you, newguy.

    If you don't like to read, you can come up to the Bronx with me and we'll walk down 161st Street and see how similar the races are.
