Thanks, New York Times!
UPDATE: From our “college is a waste of time and money” files…
Long admired for raising academic superstars, parents of Asian background are coming under fire from their own community for pushing their children into university programs for which many have no real interest or talent and often quit in distress.
At a recent conference hosted by and for the GTA’s Asian community, Chinese-Canadian educators and professionals warned some 300 parents in Mandarin, Cantonese and English to stop giving their children no other choice than professional courses such as engineering, medicine, accounting or pharmacy — programs for which some are so ill-equipped and uninterested they drop out, fail, get suspended for cheating or suffer depression and acute anxiety.
The article quotes non-Asian undergraduates complaining their Chinese and Korean classmates don’t mingle with others — a charge conference co-chair Nicole Wong reluctantly admits rings true.
This is something it would be good for Jewish families to “get” too, but that’s not going to happen anymore than it will with Asian ones. Notice that no Asian parents are quoted in this article going, “Yeah, you’re right!”
We have too many goddamn lawyers already and that’s not me being a bitch. That is a statistical fact. You’re living in a Philip Roth novel.
For instance: why are you leaving your physical protection to the goyim in the armed forces and the police? Is that smart?
Meanwhile, look at this moron:
An ‘Asian’ school has come to mean one that is so academically focused that some students feel they can no longer compete or have fun,” the article says, quoting non-Asian high school students who say they wouldn’t choose the University of Toronto because it’s largely Asian.
U of T provost Cheryl Misak told the Star she finds such comments “rather alarming, and I am heartened they have not surfaced in any substantial way at the U of T.”
Gee, Misak, I guess they haven’t surfaced cuz, uh, EVERYBODY AT U. OF T. IS ALREADY ASIAN, see?
The world is run by ****wits.
