I have Asian friends and most of them are in the Advanced Placement classes. IS IT THEIR PARENTS?

So overpowered

Nah, they just work harder than normal and their parents tends to pressure them about them must getting A's all the time. They are not smarter than anybody else. It's a cultural thing.

Academic success is 40% intelligence, 60% hard work. Smart people usually know (because they're smart) that they should work hard, and thus often do better. But - they can still be surpassed by others who take studying more seriously, even if there is a large intelligence gap between them.

Their parents beat the shit out of them. It's normal for asian parents to tell their kid to go die, they could really give less of a shit about your feelings. White people are too nice, tell your kid to kill himself once in a while.


Really? That never happened to me.

well... I'm Asian... and I'm taking Pre-Cal right now... taking AP Calc BC next year... freshman in high school and no, for me it's not cuz my parents make me, i just want to take all these classes so my college life would be so much easier... this generation's a lazy one and actually i guess it depends on the rate you usually learn stuff... i mean i start learning stuff pretty quickly and catch on fast... depends on person to person. also it depends on your educational background and stuff i guess?

Just a cultural thing. Quality of life in Asia isn't as great, so when their kid has the chance to go to school when they couldn't, they push them. Least that's what my parent's act like. When i was in elementary, in order to prepare for spelling tests my dad would get my to write the words 10-20 times, and more if i couldn't get it right. Just an example. White parent's, no offence, give a lot more leniency. Always saying things like, as long as you try your best. My dad's not as strict as before, but when I bring home a 75% on a test, he still looks a little bit disappointed

Well if you look at averages around the world, Asian countries like China and Japan have the highest averages per student. True, those men have contributed a great lot (except for maybe Alexander the Great, he was a mean mther fker). But consider this, the time that all these guys came around, racism and sexism were rampant, even during Albert Einsteins lifetime. There could have been millions of brilliant ideas made by both females and other ethnic groups, that never saw the light of day because of these issues. Other then the Great Pyramid workers, everyone else on that list is a white male.

Asians are just more committed to their learning.

I agree Hei007, but this list is not a gospel, I dont know particularly that there are "less Asian geniuses", I'm sure if I took the time to study the history of eastern society of Asian stock that I would find influential and intelligent individuals who would be considered "geniuses" at least in the context of their culture, history, and etc.
