Post Asians Catching up with Whites in Earnings 


Quote:
Fueled by the emergence of an educated Hmong middle class and a surge in the number of well-educated immigrants from India, Asians in Minnesota are drawing even with whites in economic success, the U.S. Census Bureau will report today.

......

In almost every state with a substantial Asian population, Asians earn more than whites. Until recently, the exceptions were Minnesota and Wisconsin, two states with major Hmong concentrations. Asians in Wisconsin still earn markedly less than whites. More Asians, whites nearly even in earnings


It also mentions Asians from India as a group have household income almost twice as much as Americans as a group.

Anyone surprised by such statistics? Is this the what we call the American dream or does this represent job losses to foreigners?

You sound so familiar, I can't get over it. Just not sure which one yet, Nonpartisan or Frasier.

New name, new race!!! Yes, it is the American dream, if I recall correctly, anyone can make it in America if they try hard. That's what they did, with a little help and to my dismay, they probably didn't read Colin Powell's book.

But I gather there's no pleasing you is there? Furthermore, unless you are Native American, you are also a foreigner.

Most immigrants come here with nothing and have the language barrier when they start out. If they can make it, why can't people who are born here, speak the language and have a lot make it? You can label me as an "AccusedWhiteRacistInMN", but what are excuses for the blacks not making as much as the immigrant Asians? You lived in MN before so you might have known that the discrimination against the Asian is far worse than that against the blacks. You don't hear the Asians bitching about the discrimination crap all the time. They probably spend the time on figuring out how to make themselves better, more educated, like Colin Powell did.

I thought blacks were proud of Colin Powell, but it seems like you dislike him. Is it because he is in the wrong party?

What's the matter you/What's Up a little hot under the collar? I think I already called your other buddy who started this website that in so many words. Thank you for being real and admitting it on your own.

Discrimination? In Minnesota? Get the hell outta here!! Not in this liberal state with so much interracial dating, you must be kidding. On that subject I was told to take a trip to the Mall Of America.

If you'd read through what you and your friend posted, there'd be no need to respond to some of your questions because the story answers it for you. The Hmong began arriving in force in the 1970s, in the aftermath of the Vietnam War. They were allies of the CIA during the war, and were promised resettlement and assistance if the other side prevailed...

[Blacks] Have a lot of what? I missed something. People like you are the excuses. Just like your friends who started this site are now bitching and moaning about Asians taking your jobs, it's almost the same story, different race. Posting crap like this and making remarks about losing your jobs to foreigners can be the beginning of a backlash against Asians and other "foreigners" getting those good jobs. Luckily for them they were handed a handup as well as a handout and are able to start their own businesses and bring each other up. A few years back, Asians were the hottest thing that came here and there was every program imaginable to help them get on their feet. Now that they have and are earning more income, you have a problem. What's next, in a few more years, you'll have problems with the Somalians, Mexicans, etc.? That is, if you don't already. Don't worry, I'm not checking previous posts.

There you are leaping to conclusions. I don't recall, unless you know me better than I know myself, ever mentioning anything about disliking Colin Powell in any fashion. In fact I don't know the man. Again, plain and simple: he doesn't speak for me, because I speak for myself. Why do you think he would make me proud, if nothing other than the fact that we both are Black? I would truly be proud of him if he were my friend or relative. Are you suggesting that I should be proud of Obama Barack, Kevin Garnett, Lebron James, Michael Vick, etc.? After all, they too are successful Black men who, based on your logic, I should be proud of.

...On second thought, I may be proud when they "kick butt," especially if I'm betting on or rooting for them. But then again, I'd have a personal stake in the outcome of their success, if only just momentarily.

Do Black people assume and ask you asinine questions about another White person they believe you should be proud of just because that person is White? What other White person, besides your friends and relatives are you proud of? What other White person speaks for you and your race as a whole?

That's good to know so I won't keep attacking the other two guys thinking they started this site with their own agenda...but he's definitely not the person who started this post.
