Asian students increasingly dominate all science fields, step by step, their involvement in winning competitions and signing up for the best schools is no shock to me, I have taught Chinese students and they soak up information rapidly and change direction sometimes 180 degrees with amazing suddenness. Years and years ago, European and especially Jewish students were the top winners of math competitions like this one. Now, 90% of the top students are mainly Chinese with some Indian winners, too. Does this mean that Asian students go on to be hired when they finally leave the universities? Getting a teaching job for them all is similar to the ruthless hiring practices which have now sidelined most white males from getting university jobs!
First off: I came in second in the National German Scholarship exams way back in 1968 after only 3 years of German classes. I was mainly self-taught, too! The winner was a German kid who took the exam and thus, cheated! My teachers protested this and the committee made me a joint winner. I was still very pissed off about all this. I was given a chance to go to school in Germany but due to a rabble rousing speech I gave during the student uprising there that year, I was deported which was a very amusing life experience.
These national exams have consequences. In my case, the CIA wanted US citizens well versed in languages to fight the Cold War. I could have joined this group easily only I decided at age 14 to fight the CIA and to spy on it, too, which was lots of fun for a kid with real life consequences. Even so, in 1984 when my parents were asked by the Chinese government, after it overthrew Madame Mao and her Mad Gang, to suggest someone to host Chinese officials so they can learn about America, I was chosen for this job.
It paid well, too! I then decided, as an experiment, to get them all to debate economics and so we had regular sessions about this which ended up with some of them working for me in my business and they had this revelation: THEY LOVE MONEY. Big time. One day, Zheng announced he loved capitalism and when he returned to Shanghai, he immediately began to change that city and it exploded into a major trade hub in the world. Way back then, I warned the government that the Chinese learned swiftly and this is a danger to our country which was and still is being run by a gang of idiots.
The list of winners above show a tiny handful of non-Asian top contenders. At least one is a Jewish male, there seems to be a Russian near the top and a German name. Asians are now being discriminated against in science hiring at Universities which this story reveals starkly: Job ad at U of Louisville raises questions about considering race in faculty hires
Even before the recent, widespread student protests over campus climate issues, many colleges and universities were working to make their faculties more diverse. But can a department specifically reserve a position for an underrepresented minority candidate? That’s what some are asking after a job ad for an assistant professorship reserved for nonwhite, non-Asian Ph.D.s was abruptly deleted from a jobs site on Tuesday.
The post (inactive but still cached here) on HigherEdJobs mostly resembled a typical ad, encouraging applicants “with a Ph.D. in physics or a related area, a strong research record and a passion for teaching” to apply… “The Department of Physics and Astronomy announces a tenure-track assistant professor position that will be filled by an African-American, Hispanic American or a Native American Indian [sic].”
The ad, posted in mid-October, was taken down after the department received a complaint that the preferences didn’t include applicants with disabilities, said C.S. Jayanthi, chair of physics and astronomy.
White racists believe that ‘white’ is best. The smartest…clever…but look at how many European-stock students made the top 56 in the above list! Virtually none. I am the grandmother of a half-Chinese boy who is extremely bright like his mom and dad who are careful parents and make all their decisions based on ‘will this improve the schooling our child is getting?’ When house hunting, this is the #1 consideration.
When my children went to school in South Orange years ago, several of my neighbors were successful, well-to-do or even famous black families. Since their children played with mine and were good friends, I could overhear them discussing things and the most distressful conversations were, ‘I don’t have to study so hard, I can go to any school I wish!’ So they GOOF OFF. One black child of immigrant parents from Africa, wasn’t allowed to do this by his very strict parents but they were definitely the exception, not the rule.
This goes along through college years: black students don’t work very hard because they don’t need to do much to get the best jobs, ever. They are winners without running the race. This has huge implications in the future. First off, if universities hire an army of ‘diversity’ professors, they screw up everything and are poor teachers. The ability to do research collapses unless these legacy professors work mainly with Asian graduate students who do 90% of the thinking and the work on projects.
This, in turn, is infuriating for the students competing with each other for the crumbs from the table while the black/Hispanic winners of the lottery goof of or exploit them. Over time, this will lead to a very serious backlash. Or our educational system deteriorates even more than it already has. In the soft sciences, it is easy to coast along and know very little. In the hard sciences, it is fatal.
Having an army of poorly trained, ill-prepared black/Hispanic ‘teachers’ running our educational system is suicidal. Black children can learn but will put in the hard sweat of the brow only if motivated. If they know and they most certainly know that they will be hired and petted and given higher salaries than their co-workers, they will do minimal work and view this as an exploitable moment in life. This, in turn, erodes everything around it, it is highly toxic and the worst off will be…black and Hispanic professors which everyone will assume is stupid and lazy!
And white males? There is no future for them in the sciences so I note they are not bothering much anymore and going off their own way! The Asian immigrants all think this will lead to a wonderful future and only this last two years is it dawning on them that they are the New White Oppressors and they will no longer be protected by the civil rights rules. Instead, they will all be pounded into the ground to make everyone else seem higher.
Way back in the Ice Ages of the 1960’s I launched more than one legal challenge of the system, one item was my demand I get to take shop and auto repair classes in high school. I won but was way into college at that point. But over the years, I notice many girls have zero interest in either class and few thrive in it and I did thrive when I took these classes as an adult at my local high school (amusing everyone!) that I was the only female in the classes! If we have a secret law forcing all employers of mechanics and house building to hire a set number of women, I would be a millionaire for there are very few women who do this sort of thing.
Which reminds me that house building has been taken over by Hispanics mainly due to illegal aliens being paid under the table! Maybe the government ought to do something about that little shocking business?
