Asian Americans: Arthur Hu's Index of Diversity

Jump to Contents (c) Arthur Hu 1984-2020, please cite when using data from here on how to get more complete data or complete text of these references

Some people collect stuff, this is my 15 plus years collection of racial statistics, organized around statistics for Asian Americans. Most racial statistics are given for blacks, maybe hispanics, but very few for Asians. Asians are unusual in that they have both the characteristics of disadvantaged minorities, like the African Americans, and over-achieving minorities such as the Jews and Episcopalians.

What is remarkable is that, contrary to the popular thesis that Whites are always on top, and persons of color are always on the bottom because of racism, more often than not, Asians have lower rates of most headline problems. You'll almost never see them documented because of the unwritten rule that Whites must end up best and Blacks, worst. If you wander around, you'll also find evidence of when even the lower income, lower education Hispanics are better (AIDS rates, infant mortality, life expectancy) and even the few places where Blacks are better. I rank them, and figure out a conclusion instead of starting out with the conclusion and ommitting data that doesn't support it.

Asians have higher household incomes are healthier, get better grades and test scores, go to the best colleges at the highest rates in the most rewarding and difficult fields commit fewer crimes, and have more solid families in terms of structure than the whites, even though they may have a higher rate of poverty or live in poor neighborhoods. This makes the Asian Americans a potent weapon in the fight against classic liberal racial-marxism, the idea that all outcomes can be explained in terms of income and discrimination.

intelligence and evolution Phillipe Rushton of Canada has this controversial theory that the reason that Asians are smarter than Whites than Blacks is because they are higher up on the evolutionary scale and they appeared last. Also has wierd theories that size of sexual organs is inversely proportional to health, skull size and intelligence. This is widely regarded as racist, but an interesting correlation if nothing else since nearly all the data on this page indicates that Asians tend me be better in almost every point of comparison where blacks are worse, and worse where blacks are better. His explanations are odd, but if correlation isn't neccesarily causation, the patterns are worth noting because his data appears to be correct.

Begin with Sucheng Chan's Bittersweet Soil. Almost every large Chinese community had some sort of "vegetable/fruit" garden. Many Chinese "farmers" still have farms in California's Central Valley and grow a variety of products. One of my family's close friends, a third-generation farmer near Walnut Grove (in the vicinity of Locke), just sent me a new variety of garlic he's working on. The Asian pears and grapefruits can also be found in California. In Nevada, Virginia City, Carson City, Tuscarora, and other towns with a Chinese population in the late 19th century have many stories about their "vegetable and fruit peddlers" and "Chinese gardens."

@@Jewish, comparisons

Asians compared to Jews -
see chart on over-representation page Asians have been compared with the Jews as the new overachieving group, but it appears that only the top Asian ethnic groups are really comparable, the Japanese, Indians, and Chinese.

Another group with a 50% college rate, high IQ, and 2-3% population are the gays, but both Jews and Gays are very liberal and vote at rates approaching unity, wheras Asians tend to be a bit more conservative than the general population, and vote at very low rates. Asians are highly represented as engineers and doctors, as are Jews, but only at parity among new law students, and far below parity in the law profession.

It is very difficult to find numbers of Jews. One reason is that Jews have successfully lobbied NOT to be included in US Census breakouts, however there are private surveys, the SAT, which records religion data, and it is often possible to pick out likely jewish persons by surname in awards lists.

Jews generally score higher than Asians, but the advantage is smaller or disappears if compared against Chinese or Indians broken out separately. Jews are proportionally stronger than the Japanese in he Westinghouse Talent Search, but less than the Chinese and Indians.

Where the big differences are that Asians vote at the lowest, Jews the highest rates, and Asians are among the most conservative, but Jews the most liberal. In IQ, Jews are higher than Asians overall, but not so far ahead of the Chinese or Indians.

In the Ivy League, one survey would put Asians behind, but the Chinese ahead of Jews. When broken down by religion, no group scores higher than the Jews in combined SAT, except Hindu Asians, mostly Indian, who scored about the same. Asians overall scored slightly ahead of whites, and are hurt by relatively poor verbal scores.

"you will never, ever match us
European Jews in IQ or power" Montoya challenges Asian claims to
high performance compared to Europeans.
IQs of over 130 are 7 times more likely to be found in European
populations than in East Asian populations.  China has a lower GNP
per capita than Morocco, and accounts for only 2% of Noble Prize
winners. China accounts for less than 6% of the world's GNP, and only
1/2 of its population are literate.  China has 1 billionare, Japan
has 23, the USA has 276.  Europe and North America are the only

found that different ethnic groups score differently. (Formula =
frequency of surnames in reference works divided by frequency of
surnames from social security lists.) A coefficient of 200 means that

    by Steve Sailer Published in National Review, 8/12/96 In the job market, if you are equal, you are just a commodity. How to succeed in business? Find some niche where your talents and connections aren't merely mediocre but potentially superior, sweat to fortify these competitive advantages, then monopolize the hell out of them. Immigrant groups thrive because they understand acutely the advantages of specialization (e.g., Asian Indians, the most successful of the recent arrivals, manage about half of America's motels). In the sports market, where affirmative action hardly exists, blacks grasp this logic equally well. Blacks don't comprise 12.4% of NBA players, 12.4% of synchronized swimmers, 12.4% of monster truck drivers, etc. Instead, blacks concentrate overwhelmingly on games where they are most apt to possess natural edges. In turn, this narrow focus grants them sizable cultural advantages: growing up amidst a critical mass of players, coaches, and aficionados, black youths can conveniently absorb the needed expertise. By dismissing sports as mere feats of brawn unworthy of intelligent inquiry, liberal intellectuals ironically overlook that black sports success reflects not just physical but, as we shall see, mental superiorities -- Assets that blacks could exploit in other careers, too

    Yahoo Filipino search The Filipinos are nearly the largest Asian American ethnic group, and may soon beat the Chinese for #1. Though often considered to be disadvantaged, this is often only by comparision with the Chinese and Japanese as their drop out rates and college education rates are often as good or better than whites. Before 1990, most UC campuses included Filipinos under racial preferences, but many campuses dropped this policy after being informed that Filipinos had never been under-represented. After 1993, Filipinos at Berkeley had the LOWEST admission rates, indicating affirmative action may have moved to discriminate against this group largely because they could and did get away with it, where the Chinese and Japanese had forced a showdown and won in the 80s. Their political power is nowhere near proportional to the clout of the less numerous Japanese or equally numerous Chinese Americans.

    The politically correct explanation is that there is no such thing as racial, cultural or any kind of superiority. All races and cultures are equal, anything to the contrary is due to social injustice. But how can you be "disadvantaged" if you're equal? The concept of "disadvantaged" requires that you acknowledge that somebody is "superior" whether or not they got there fair and square. The real question is how and why the winners and losers got that way.

    Another interesting issue is that while racists generally believe the white race is superior, and anti-racists all agree that whites are at the top of the oppression food-chain, race-scientists tend to peg Asians and Jews as the most developed with respect to restraint and IQ.

    Yet another good point is that if Asians are so much smarter and healthier than everybody else, why is it everybody complains about white superiority, while even Asians complain about "discrimination"?

Thomas Sowell answers a taboo question. 6201052a.htm Forbes Magazine, July 6, 1998 Human capital By Peter Brimelow A chat with Thomas Sowell "Unshrugging Atlas of the American race debate, longtime fellow of Stanford University's Hoover Institution, economist, FORBES columnist, survivor of Harlem public schools and the U.S. Marine Corps, gifted amateur photographer and much-feared world-class grouch, Thomas Sowell, 68, has just published his 25th book-Conquests and Cultures: An International History (Basic Books). It's a stunner. "We all stand on his shoulders," says the Manhattan Institute's Abigail Thernstrom, whose book America in Black and White: One Nation, Indivisible (coauthored with husband Stephan) caused a major controversy last fall. Sowell's newest work is the last of a trilogy (Race and Culture, 1994; Migrations and Cultures, 1996) in which he gives his answer to one of the most troubling, and taboo, questions of modern times: why the achievements of different human groups vary so dramatically. Sowell argues, bluntly and in great detail, that some human cultures-the mental "working machinery of everyday life"-are just plain more effective than others. Not "better" or "worse"; just plain work better in the modern world." from ADP
