Tiger Mom: Some Cultural Groups Are Superior

Maureen Callahan, New York Post, January 4, 2014

She’s doubling down.

Amy Chua, the self-proclaimed “Tiger Mom” who, in 2011, published a book arguing that Chinese women are superior mothers—thus their offspring superior children—has even more to say.

In “The Triple Package,” Chua and her husband, co-author Jed Rubenfeld, gather some specious stats and anecdotal evidence to argue that some groups are just superior to others and everyone else is contributing to the downfall of America.

Unsurprisingly, the Chinese Chua and the Jewish Rubenfeld belong to two of the eight groups they deem exceptional. In no seeming order of importance, they are:

  • Jewish
  • Indian
  • Chinese
  • Iranian
  • Lebanese-Americans
  • Nigerians
  • Cuban exiles
  • Mormons

These groups—“cultural,” mind you, never “ethnic” or “racial” or “religious”—all possess, in the authors’ estimation, three qualities that they’ve identified as guarantors of wealth and power: superiority, insecurity and impulse control.

“That certain groups do much better in America than others—as measured by income, occupational status, test scores and so on—is difficult to talk about,” the authors write. “In large part, this is because the topic feels so racially charged.”

And so begins their cat-and-mouse polemic, in which they claim they’re courageously agitating for a greater good: the revival of America itself as a “Triple Package Culture.” It’s a series of shock-arguments wrapped in self-help tropes, and it’s meant to do what racist arguments do: scare people.

Chua, a law professor at Yale, became a media sensation in 2011, when The Wall Street Journal published an extract from her book “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother.” She herself is an American, raised in the Midwest, but she used her heritage and all the worst stereotypes of Chinese women—cold, rigid Dragon Ladies, hostile towards their own children—to criticize the Western way of parenting, which she also said would be the downfall of America.

Her book really can be reduced to a simple argument: Chinese mothers are better than those of any other race, and these parenting methods are going to result in the West’s big fear—the continued rise and ultimate supremacy of China. Chua’s book was a best-seller, so it’s little surprise she’s back with an even more incendiary thesis, one so well timed to deep economic anxiety, to the collective fear that the American middle class is about to disappear, for good, and the misguided belief that immigration reform will result in even less opportunity for Americans than there is now.

{snip}

On to the distinguishing factors that make these eight groups the best in America:

1. A superiority complex

Any group that collectively believes they are inherently better than any other, say the authors, has an advantage. They do not note that this is perhaps humanity’s oldest and ugliest flaw, the bottom-line cause of wars and genocide. In their estimation, it’s not nearly common enough in America, where “the Superiority Complex . . . is antithetical to mainstream liberal thinking . . . the stuff of racism, colonialism, imperialism, Nazism.” This way of thinking, they write, has been a big boon to Mormons and Jews, though they also fail to note that believing in the superiority of a belief system is the driving force behind almost all organized religion. (Except the Amish. The authors freely note that the Amish are losers for this very reason.)

2. Insecurity

Here are the authors sounding most like Malcolm Gladwell: Posit something, make a solid case for it, then immediately refute it with equal fervor. The result: Readers are so confused that they can only conclude that this book is so much smarter than they are.

The authors are very impressed with their boldness in juxtaposing insecurity with superiority. “That insecurity should be a critical lever of success is another anathema, flouting the entire orthodoxy of contemporary popular and therapeutic psychology,” they write. In fact, insecurity has long been known as a prime motivator among actors, artists, CEOs, despots. “Imposter syndrome,” the term used to describe highly successful individuals who believe, deep down, they are frauds, was identified back in 1978.

{snip}

3. Impulse Control

Yet another hallmark of self-help, impulse control is considered to be a key factor in personal success—the ability to delay instant gratification in the service of a greater goal. But this isn’t really what the authors have in mind: “As we’ll use the term,” they write, “impulse control refers to the ability to resist temptation, especially the temptation to give up in the face of hardship or quit instead of persevering at a difficult task.”

You know who’s bad at this? Americans not among their eight groups. “Because all three elements of the Triple Package run so counter to modern American culture, it makes sense that America’s successful groups are all outsiders in one way or another,” they write. “Paradoxically, in modern America, a group has an edge if it doesn’t buy into—or hasn’t yet bought into—mainstream, post-1960s, liberal American principles.”

As curious as the groups that Chua and Rubenfeld elevate are the absence of ones they denigrate. Aside from the Amish (not big book-buyers), the only other group the authors take aim at are the Appalachian poor, noting, without irony, that “it’s far more socially acceptable today to insult and look down on ‘white trash’ than the poor of any other racial group.’”

As for why African-Americans don’t make the list, the authors believe that the Civil Rights Movement took away any hope for a superiority narrative, and so the black community is screwed—even as they cite Mitt Romney’s loss to Barack Obama as evidence of Mormon ascendancy.

“In this paradoxical sense, equality isn’t fair to African-Americans,” they write. “Superiority is the one narrative that America has relentlessly denied or ground out of its black population.”

Nigerian immigrants, they argue, are bolstered by the belief that they are better than other West Africans—much as the Lebanese believe, as descendants of Phoenicians, that they are superior, or that the Chinese believe that their 5,000-year-old civilization makes them superior. {snip}

    I feel offended, is there a lawyer in the house?

    • Hunter Morrow

      well this article was written by a Chinese mother so I am sure I can get you a piano playing drone-child. Will that do in a pinch?

      • Max Krakah

        Let’s not forget that asians in the US voted 90% for Obama. Anyone that claims they have “peaceful” intentions toward and “get along” with whites is just plain blind.

        • Northerner

          Obama was elected because of Whites, not Asians.

          • Luke Warmwater

            Whites are to be blamed only because of the YET relative paucity of Asians to “whites” .

            It is still telling that whites votes at something like 46 pct. in His Hopefulness first term and Asians at twice this rate, very nearly the same as blacks. For their own differing reasons, Asians and blacks are determined to destroy perceived white rule in this country as are the Hispanics.

            Asians at THIS point may be preferred to blacks but they ain’t “us” and never will be.

        • Laura Dilworth

          I thought it was around 60%

  • dd121

    Only to a liberal is a feeling of superiority a flaw.

    • dean53

      And only if a white conservative feels superior…

      • dd121

        And why not. Whites have been beaten down by the lefties for so long there’s very little pride left for whites, who, by the way, have created almost everything worth creating in the West. I think it’s high time for more White Pride. If they’re original intent constitutionalists, all the better.

        • Max Krakah

          Well, as long as the flag is not one with several white stripes, all of the same shade of white and without any lines of another color separating the stripes!

  • bigone4u

    All the Nigerian Nobel Prize winners are going to be happy that their superiority is finally being recognized. Bearing in mind the first story on Amren today, let’s also make note that Chua is a professor. When I was a prof we had a name for this sort of nonsense–mental masturbation. She’s a mental masturbator!

    • DonReynolds

      I taught at eleven colleges and universities and none of my children were interested in going past high school. Children choose their own lives. I did. So will they. I used to think the Jeffersonian ideal…..”I am a farmer, so my son can be a merchant, so his son can be a poet.”……but it does not work that way. Everybody has to find their own way in this life and pushing does not really help. No one pushed me, except me.

      • Joe blow

        Do they have a written language? Or is it a series of grunts and bongo riffs?

  • SirMe

    They are all just successful selective immigrant groups, dont see the point in that…

    • AutomaticSlim

      “They are all just successful selective immigrant groups…”

      Nigerians?
      Former boxer Ike Ibeabuchi is Nigerian. He was a hair away from the heavyweight title when he raped an escort and went to prison. I would say they lack the “impulse control” which Miss Tiger Mom finds so important.

  • sbuffalonative

    Iranians, Lebanese-Americans, and Nigerians. Odd.

    • borogirl54

      Nigeria is the fraud capital of the world. They must be intelligent enough to come up with new fraudulent enterprises.

      • Hunter Morrow

        That certainly explains jews and Chinese people.

      • Spartacus

        There’s nothing clever about their frauds, they just find a lot of stupid people…

        • Sick of it

          In America we have a lot of trusting people who get taken advantage of rather easily, especially old people.

        • I’ve seen this stuff on Dr. Phil. They talk to these post-menopausal women, pretending to actually find them attractive, claiming to be White guys with decent salaries. The women lap it up.

      • Edruezzi

        Nigerians are brainless, irrational, superstitious idiots who can’t organize anything. They don’t have a national power grid or safe drinking water, or toilets. Their army butchered itself in two silly coups d’etat in the 60s.

      • Katherine McChesney

        It is apparent by the wording of their emails that they are severely lacking in intelligence. The errors they make are laughable. I enjoy reading the websites of White people who have scammed the Nigerian scammers.

    • Pro_Whitey

      Perhaps the intense and intensely enforced ethnic solidarity is included under “superiority” and “insecurity”. I see these groups as people who turn to their own kind to the maximum extent possible for their needs and desires. Mutual support, mutual sharing of benefits. I think that explains a lot, too.

  • Yes, Israel, India, China, Iran, Lebanon, Nigeria, and Cuba are all such wonderful places to live. She does have a point! Oh wait…

    • dean53

      A case can be made that the most ambitious people from foreign nations immigrate to America, so that the foreigners who make it over here are not typical of their countrymen whom they left behind. Mexico doesn’t fit this description because their peasants can simply walk across the border without crossing an ocean or obtaining passports or visas.

      • sbuffalonative

        Yes, our older immigration policies ensured that enterprising people with drive and ambition were the ones who invested in the effort of transforming their lives. Today, it’s largely helpless refugees who had nothing to contribute to their home countries and nothing to contribute to ours. Today all we get is poor and huddled masses.

      • Dr. Möbias

        The bigger question is why should any non-White be allowed to come here and race-replace White Americans?

      • kenfrombayside

        Keep the pressure on your reps in congress. Giving 11 – 30 million (nobody knows for sure) criminal lawbreakers legalization pure insanity. Plus, they could sponsor their relatives; that would bring the total up to about 50 million aliens in our midst. Of course, these new citizens will vote for the vile democrats and their socialist giveaways. Most of them will be unskilled, uneducated, low IQ etc. Stop this outrageous bill now. Don’t sit on the sidelines.You are not wasting your time. The American people don’t want this bill. You have to do all you can do to stem the third world assault:
        – Contact your 2 US Senators and rep in congress.
        – after biz hours, leave a message on your DC rep’s voicemail. All US Senators have multiple offices so it would be a good idea to hit all of the. Remember, be civil and don’t threaten
        – go to NUMBERSUSA then go to the take action button. You will be able to send faxes to your 2 US Senators and congressional for free. (I also gave a $50 donation).
        – use Business Reply envelopes to state your opposition to America’s insane immigration policies and the proposed amnesty. Don’t give the parties any money.
        – join an immigration group like FAIR. Strength thru numbers!
        – go to the RNC & DNC sites to email them.
        – Use the media: call a talk radio program; write a letter to your local paper. If the media outlet is liberal, then talk about economic impact of massive third world immigration.
        – text everybody in your cell phone queue now.
        IF YOU DO OR SAY NOTHING, YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM….

      Taiwan, inhabited by ethnic Chinese, is a pretty nice place to live.

      • Northerner

        Taiwan is a good example of what a fully modern day China would look like

        • Charles W.

          Except you left out the fact that all the best Chinese people fled to Taiwan and HK away from Mao. The rest were killed. The mainland is all the leftover DNA. So if you ignore that tiny factor, yeah.

          • Northerner

            I wouldn’t call them the “best” since they were actually the losers of the Chinese Civil War. That’s why they fled. To say it was simply to get ”away from Mao” is a distortion. They did it for survival.

          • Charles W.

            The nationalist Chinese were the “losers” largely because we sabotaged them and supported Mao in a roundabout way–he was the noble “agrarian reformer”, remember?

            By your logic the anti-communist Czarist Russians and members of the nobility who fled into Europe were “losers” because they “lost” to the Bolsheviks, as opposed to the best of the Russian people (which they were).

            I would think that someone who posts on this site would understand why a nation’s natural aristocracy is always “better” than the dead weight of the masses.

          • Northerner

            China under the Nationalists, and Russia under the Tsars, were weak. Sure, they may be the rightful rulers, but historically they weren’t particularly effective at governing. Today, they are both better and worse off than they were before.

            The Western powers-that-be didn’t want the post-Imperial Republic of China to develop naturally. If they did, things would look very, very different today.

          • White Light

            About a fourth of Taiwan’s population is made up of the descendants of immigrants from mainland China.

    • Bulan Sabriel

      Compared to the rest of the Middle East, Israel is a wonderful place. It is a first world country. If only it had properly ethnically cleansed the Arabs.

      • “Compared to the rest of the Middle East” isn’t exactly a high bar to reach.

        • Bulan Sabriel

          Israel is a first world nation at this point

  • Puggg

    She sorta has a point. Successful people and successful groups need insecurity and impulse control.

    It’s just that she draws some of the wrong conclusions about which groups are the best. Maybe she’s deliberate about this because she doesn’t want “racism” blowback, though from what I see, she’s already getting that.

  • JustJeff

    You’re allowed to think immigrants>Americans, you just can’t say it.

    • Max Krakah

  • ncpride

    Europeans not included, huh? That’s rich considering she’s living in the best country in the world that was founded by Europeans, using technology, medical advancements and every other thing that has any kind of positive benefits to mankind. These others are so jealous of our superiority, they can’t trash us enough, especially White males to whom we owe our very way of life. Oh, and why on earth did she decide to marry and produce with that ‘inferior’ White guy? Curious.

    • Hunter Morrow

      He is not White, for starters.

    • Northerner

            After re-reading the article, I can’t believe I missed it. Anger does that sometimes…

          • Hunter Morrow

            Don’t worry. If youhave cable you can spot 100 jews in about 20 minutes.

      • NoMosqueHere

        Jews are not a race but rather a religion. Racially, Jews run the gamut from blonde haired and blue eyed to black african. And anyone can be a jew if they so choose.

        But white non jews are among, if not the most, creative people on earth.

        • Northerner

          Wrong. There are specific groups. For example, Ashkenazi Jews are a distinct race of people with supposedly higher IQs and who suffer from genetically predisposed diseases like Tay-Sachs and Gauchers.

          Sure, anyone can become a “Jew” by practicing Judaism, but that’s not the same thing as being racially Jewish.

        • Hunter Morrow

          Anyone can stick feathers in his bum and call himself a chicken.Just do not count on eggs for breakfast tomorrow morning.

        • Extropico

          When Israel stops according recognition of Jewishness via DNA samples, you can get back to us on that claim. There are about 1 billion Africans who would love to convert as a price for immigration and welfare rights.

          I appreciate the open sentiment in re conversion, but that is not the majority Jewish view, although you posit that narrative.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Jews ARE a race of people. No matter how you try to spin it your claim will always be wrong. They ARE a race and they ARE a religion.

          • NoMosqueHere

            She’s whiter than you babe. Meet a nice jewish girl, Israeli model Bar Raphaeli.

          • Mergatroyd

            Once again, for the record and until everyone here gets it:

            “Should Jews be considered Whites?”

            Jews typically do not identify with the people and culture of Christian Europe and its offshoots; traditional Jewish attitudes conceptualize Judaism as separate from White, Christian society; partly because of their lack of identification with non-White Christian culture, Jewish groups have led the campaign to remove Christianity from the public square

            There is a long history of very mainstream Jewish activism and identity that sees Christian Europe as an evil outgroup responsible for a long history of persecuting Jews; an important aspect of Jewish self-conception in America.

            Jews are a relatively powerful group that has often been in competition with non-Jewish Europeans

            Jewish ethnic activism typically excludes non-Jewish Whites and favors Jews, as in the appointment of Elena Kagan and the Jewish campaign to increase Jewish enrollment in Ivy League universities.

            As a result, the distinction between Jew and non-Jewish White is of considerable real world importance.

        • The word “Jew” can refer to one who follows a specific religion, or it can refer to one who belongs to a specific ethnic group. That ethnic group has a racial basis, but it is not a race.

          • Katherine McChesney

            Keep telling yourself that. Hebrews are from one of three races of people. They are Semites. Blacks are Hamites. Caucasians are Japhethites.

        • There are “ethnic” jooze.

        • White Light

          Most Jews descend from a common middle eastern population. Not really a “race” as we would commonly call it(do we ever speak of a “English race?”), but definitely an ethnic group.

          • rightrightright

            Yes we do speak of the English as a race. The British state of course denigrates us as mongrels and the revolting Labour politician, Jack Straw, pronounced “the English are not worth saving as a race” thus OK-ing relentless third world immigration upon us.

            Ashkenazy Jews it seems are pretty much European according to recent research. Since the 12th century their DNA reveals about 40% Italian input.

        • Massif1

          Jews were considered a nationality during the soviet times. You should do some homework on Jewish identity in Israel and Europe. Even secular Jews consider themselves a nationality.

        • ssviking

          Are jews a race or a religion? They are neither and both they are a race that worships themselves religiously

      • Tim_in_Indiana

        According to Carleton Putnam, Jews are a substock of the white race. Therefore, while Jews are white, whites are not Jews.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        They may look, walk, and talk like whites, but they are not white by DNA, thought or deed. They are like the aliens in the movie The Thing, infiltrators who attack by stealth and turning people against one another. They are not, and never will be whites, not in my view given their relentless attacks against our race over the past 2,000 years and then some.

        • DonReynolds

          They do not consider themselves white and in this country, it means WASP.
          I do remember an Italian gangster series on HBO (Sopranos) in an episode when Tony is taking some of his mobsters to meet with some “white guys”. Some of the hit men were a bit offended. “What do you mean….white guys? Ain’t we white?” Tony says…..”No, I mean White Guys!” He was talking about WASPs.

        • TheAntidote

          To djoo or not to djoo. Race….religion….race….religion. Look I’m gonna’ make it easy for all of you:

          Jews do not self identify as White. Jews do not consider themselves White.

          • Hunter Morrow

            They even administer DNA tests on people so somebody who is not a ” real jew” does not sneak in. They behave as an Other, a separated race.

      • Joe blow

        They can be. They usually consider themselves whatever is most profitable at the moment.

        It happened in my mind so it is real!

    • sbuffalonative

      From her list I’m left wondering about the neighborhood she lives in and her circle of friends and acquaintances. It may well be that these are the people she sees who are successful and their are no whites to compare them to. Still, it’s an odd list.

      • DonReynolds

        From her list, I would tend to think she never really knew any of the founding stock of this country. Not going to find her at a DAR meeting or Daughters of the Confederacy. They would not invite her and she would not be interested.

      • Joe blow

        I heard she washes and irons a great shirt!

  • Hunter Morrow

    A jew andasian said they were the best. Shocker! I guess we could count adherents of a bizarre religious cult whose stomping ground of Utah leads the U.S. in psychotropic medicine use, unhappy marriages and funny underpants wearing as White, maybe.

    A case can be made that the most ambitious people from foreign nations immigrate to America, so that the foreigners who make it over here are not typical of their countrymen whom they left behind. Mexico doesn’t fit this description because their peasants can simply walk across the border without passports or visas. Unfortunately, America had made it illegal for white American non-Hispanic gentiles to believe they are superior to anyone else.

    I read Amy Chua’s first book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. I was amazed at the rigorous, disciplined way she raised her kids. I wish I had been raised that way, and I wish I’d raised my own children her way. Her kids weren’t allowed to watch TV, play video games or waste time participating in group activities like drama or sports. They were expected and required to excel at activities that developed them personally, such as music and math mastery. Nothing less than an “A” was acceptable. She required as much of herself in the process of disciplining her children as she demanded of them.

    Chua said that Chinese parents believe their children are inherently strong, so they demand high achievement from them. Conversely, Americans believe their children are weak and easily wounded, so most Americans won’t push their children to excel for fear of damaging them. It’s a shame, but typical American children don’t stand a chance competing against children raised the way Amy Chua raised hers.

    • Dave4088

      Don’t forget that white Americans have been raised to think of themselves at best, equal to non-whites (but morally inferior), and at worst, inferior to them. If we don’t deep six the religion of racial equality whites may disappear before the 22nd century since they are the only ones foolish enough to believe in it.

    • pcmustgo

      As someone who is half jewish, I can say, many Jews get to opt-out of white guilt issues too because they see themselves as a victim group or as sharing a heritage with blacks (civil rights movement) or as somehow immune white people. I don’t speak for all Jews on this, but I always thought i was special because I was half jewish.

    • Jesse James

      We didn’t need them to put mankind on the moon and we sure don’t need them now. They are here to loot and pillage what our forefathers built. They are just scavengers picking at the bones of western civilization. Time to shake off the malaise and strive for greatness again. We are down, not out.

      • NorthernWind

        Exactly. Our greatness is in our blood. It has been lulled to sleep but it *will* awaken again, with a vengeance.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Hopefully. As it is, it ‘feels’ like our race has given up. There are no true heroes in the White Race today. No whites in government ever speak out on behalf of Whites nor do they take the opportunity to expose BRA.

    • dean53

      It’s a no-brainer why people want to come to America. The real question is: Why did our white American representatives vote for the 1965 Immigration Act that ensured the eventual dispossession of their descendants?

      • RisingReich

        Searching to the answer to that question is how I ended up here.

      • Dave4088

        A fun fact of the 1965 Immigration act is that alien Emmanuel Cellar was the inspiration for it.

        • Mergatroyd

          The bill was written by assistant attorney general Norbert Schlei who was Jewish, and its official name is the Hart-Cellar bill. It was then pushed heavily by the American Jewish Congress, the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, and the American Federation of Jews from Eastern Europe.

          Emmanuel Cellar spent his entire career in Congress opposing immigration restriction, beginning with his hostility to the 1924 immigration law which favored Northwestern Europeans. Jacob Javits also pushed non-White immigration in the Senate. As soon as the bill was passed, Jewish organizations focused their efforts on increasing the numbers of non-White immigrants.

          Ted Kennedy neither wrote nor passed the Immigration Act of 1965.

          http COLON www DOT theoccidentalobserver DOT net/2013/05/ted-kennedy-did-not-pass-the-immigration-act-of-1965/

          We are living with the intended results today, the U.S. now at least 30% and possibly 50% non-White.

      That’s like asking, “Why would men rape a beautiful, defenseless young woman who was left chained and naked in her front yard by her parents?” The real question is: “Why would those who were supposed to protect her do that to her??” To be redundant, that’s like asking, “Why would dogs eat a prime rib steak left by the roadside?”

      The fault lies not with those who see an opportunity and grab it, but with those who were entrusted to protect a resource that belonged to someone else and betrayed that trust. That’s called breach of fiduciary responsibility in legalese.

  • William Krapek

    Every Nigerian I’ve worked with – and God help me UNDER – was vicious. And stupid. They always go out of their way to remind you of your place on the Totem pole. Specifically: your place beneath THEM.

    As for China? You got martial arts from the Greeks. Mahayana Buddhism has Greek influence, and the religion itself came from Hinduism, which is a White man’s religion from way, way back. And while the Great Wall made it to CNN’s list of Modern Wonders, at the end of the day it’s just a big wall.

    That didn’t even work.

    Meanwhile Hagia Sophia, which was rejected by the voters, was a bolt out of the blue. Nothing like it had been seen before.

    White people invented the chariot. White people invented the bow and arrow.

    The Industrial Revolution wasn’t just a “thing” that “happened” to White people. It’s something they’ve been building up to for a long, LONG time.

    So why don’t you just make sure the door don’t hit ya where the Good Lord split ya.

  • Alexandra1973

    I wouldn’t disagree that some cultural groups are superior, my issue would be with the ones she considers to be superior.

    Nigerians? When I think Nigerians, I think scams!

    • LeGrandDerangement

      But…but…they’re superior to other West Africans.

      • Peter Connor

        They are very successful at various frauds and at driving without a license around here.

      • Katherine McChesney

        That certainly isn’t saying much. The scams are poorly worded and it’s apparent that the intelligence of nigerians is very low. I’ve been the victim of 419 Nigerian scams. Apparently, my membership in the Republican party and subsequent group emails left me open for attack. I just report them to [email protected].

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Imagine if a White wrote such a book stating that Whites are superior? It would never be published.

    Western civilization, more specifically, it is the American system of expanded opportunity, Protestant work ethic and freedom that allows such people to achieve the success that they have had

    We are a Western country and we don’t need any more obnoxious, anti-White, Democrat-supporting harridans from East Asia telling us about superiority.

    Didn’t the Chinese just land a moon rover on the lunar surface? Using White technology, no less.

    We Whites are not impressed; this is something we did decades ago. We landed two rovers on Mars — ten years ago.

    Yes, it seems some cultures ARE superior, certainly not a single one listed by this hateful, Chinese supremacist and her non-White husband.

    This rover went to Mars where it photographed a Martian sunrise.

    • Northerner

      She’s not a Chinese supremacist. If she were, she would have married a Chinese guy for sure. If anything, she’s a little self-hating (and her husband probably is too). However, that won’t stop them from including their cultures in that list.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        She is a Chinese supremacist, she couldn’t have made it clearer:

        … that Chinese women are superior mothers—thus their offspring superior children.

        …some groups are just superior to others and everyone else is contributing to the downfall of America.

        Chinese Chua and the Jewish Rubenfeld belong to two of the eight groups they deem exceptional.

        All others — are inferior — like Whites — she claims, –and are contributing to the downfall of America.

        • So CAL Snowman

          If she really believed in Chinese supremacy she would be living in China or any number of “Chinatowns” in the US.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            Why would she want to live in a heavily polluted, over populated country that her OWN people created as a reflection of THEIR unique DNA?

            Why not go to a much better place created by “inferior” Whites (as a reflection of White DNA) and then tell the hosts — Native Born Whites — that WE are inferior to her own people.

            You know, those safe, orderly, prosperous countries that Whites create and the Cultural Marxists want to destroy.

          • So CAL Snowman

            She’s a Chinese supremacist but curiously ALL of her neighbors are White.

          • Katherine McChesney

            Not possible. IF she were truly a Chinese supremacist she’d be living among her own people. And she would have married someone of her race. As it is, she’s probably just a chinese woman who married for money and status.

    • White Light

      She maintains that “IT’S CULTURE, IT’S CULTURE, IT’S CULTURE,” like good cultural Marxist. She tries to claim that Whites had a good culture, but somehow “lost” it and need to get it back, and can do just as good as the Chinese or the Jews if only they adopted her “values.”

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Chinese Chua and the Jewish Rubenfeld want the White man’s world without the White man in it.

          You have no use as coolies, they want you eliminated as they eliminated millions of kulaks in Russia who were in the way and tens of millions of Ukrainians who didn’t like central planning. Your life means less than nothing to the people trying to dominate your country.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            When our lives mean nothing, than that is the time for us to kill, and kill, and kill some more until we are either free, or wiped out. Existing in this situation is worse than mere death. We must invoke the Jews “Sampson Option,” and take down the world with us if it comes to that and let our darkie enemies die of starvation, disease and their own violence against each other.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Indeed, the Chinese have exterminated entire populations totally to the last baby, and so have the Mongols. Anyone who thinks they don’t plan to kill off white populations through Holodomors, nuclear attack or any number of other ways is sadly mistaken because they people are without empathy, pity or mercy, even to each other.

      Amy Chua is a huge winner, having inherited the millennial fruits of Western Civilization, thanks to the wisdom of her Chinese Filipino parents who immigrated here and the stupidity of liberal white Euro-American men who gave their nation away to foreigners.

          Actually, the Koreans and Japanese consider them to be somewhat inferior.

          • SiniticMan

            Haha. The Koreans and Japanese are peripheral and always will be to the eyes of the Chinese. And sooner or later the whole world will be as well.

            The ISOGG Y-DNA tree even confirms what we have always believed. Chinese people have always looked down on southerners who were part Yue (Southeast Asian y-DNA O2 people). And basically Koreans and Japanese at their core, were largely Y-DNA O2 people at one point in history. We always knew that the Koreans/Japanese were related to the Yue natives of southern China. Same rice eating and tattoo wearing savages in other words. Today y-DNA O3 men (Sino-Tibetan/Hmong-Mien/Qiangic) account for a significant portion of the Korean/Japanese populations and that fact alone is probably why they seem so civilized/competent today because it was through the contribution of our precious y-DNA O3 genes into their population in far ancient times.

            If you don’t understand the ISOGG tree its fine let me put it this way. The Vietnamese, Khmer, Thai races, Koreans, and Japanese people were all one big darker skinned/indolent peripheral family in very ancient times whereas lighter skinned Qiangic, Miao, Tibetans, and Hans where taller, fairer and smarter hailing from the northwestern QInghai plateau of China.
            We were always more martial and thus civilized and we will always be.

            A mechanical engineer I work with went on and on about a recent issue he had with the Chinese trying to reverse engineer a certain piece of equipment he and I built and exported a couple years back. This Chinese company called to ask some “questions” and all but confessed to have had 20+ engineers working trying to figure out how to copy our work. Chinese can be VERY well read and still fail to see connections and reasons why things are done.
            Totally agree with the non-creative conformist assessment. This machine was not that complex, not at all.

          • Mergatroyd

            Their complete lack of innovative technological output speaks volumes about them and their level of creativity, which is near nil.

            They can copy and steal technology well, but cannot create.

          • DNA Explains It All

            Where I was going with this was that they are not even “good” at copying really. They throw huge resources and manpower at the copies they manage.
            Truth be told though, there are FAR worse peoples to try and live among. Chinese and Asian (oriental that is) people in general do tend to have ordered societies, maybe not super innovative but livable. The same cannot be said for anywhere in Africa (save the places where Europeans are running the show).

    I am neither Chinese nor Jewish but I find this book to be rather exciting. This needs to be talked about.

    • dean53

      I applaud her for daring to resurrect the idea of SUPERIORITY – a topic that egalitarian America refuses to discuss except to scream “racism” if anyone dares to suggest that “superiority” even exists (“anyone” being a white non-Hispanic gentile).

  • Conrad

    I think that the books theses is correct for the most part. Of course for me the real question is NOT who is superior but rather whom WILL BE superior.
    That’s why I use the term – reason, logic, eugenics. In this respect the Chinese may be in the lead again. They are all ready working on the eugenics idea. So, choose your mates wisely and let us hope that the ‘white’ Wal-Mart people will marry blacks.

    • dean53

      What do you mean by ‘white’ Wal-Mart people? Do you mean ordinary poor white folk? If so, there is no benefit to poor whites marrying blacks. Intermarriage diminishes the absolute numbers of whites while simultaneously increasing the number and IQ of blacks. It also creates emotional weakness and racial disloyalty in whites whose loved ones have intermarried with blacks. That’s why I have little regard for RINOs like Romney, McCain & Boehner whose children have married or adopted blacks. On this I agree with bi-racial Melissa Harris-Perry: That little bl*ack b*ast*rd doesn’t belong in the bosom of that otherwise beautiful white family.

    • dean53

      What do you mean by ‘white’ Wal-Mart people? Do you mean ordinary poor white folk? If so, no good can come from poor whites (or any whites) marrying blacks. The number of whites will only decrease, and the number and IQ of blacks will increase. Also, the racial loyalties of the relatives of the intermarrying whites will be adversely affected.

      Biracial blacks are the scourge of America. They are misfits who are smarter than the average black, closer in intelligence to the average white, and embittered because decent white folk don’t want their offspring intermarrying with them.

Every other group can feel superior without facing that charge, the one that’s worse than being accused of murder or rape.

Her detractors don’t like her because her thesis hints at HBD and behavioral determinism, and those are big no-no’s in the Cultural Marxist heterodox.

    • AutomaticSlim

      The fact that she threw Nigerians into her list proves to me that she is a fraud. She was aiming to deflect any charges of “racism”.

  • Northerner

    This is about identity and racial integrity more than anything else. Some of the groups in that list are old, if not ancient. They’re not actually superior per se, but they do have a strong sense of who they are.

  • MartelC

    and why is it none of these groups can prosper in their homelands? they all have some sort of deep hostility towards the core culture and peoples of the US.
    They also enrage in ethnic nepotism, something many of them complain about (eg wasps not letting them into the country club)

    Chua has illustrated that we have moved into a ottoman empire like, low trust, high corruption society. – so groups like chua’;s (and her husbands) violate the civic standards and civic trust, created by the core culture and ‘thrive’ by sinking the rest of the country down….

    • Dr. Möbias

      Great point. Amazing that this “not letting us into the country clubs” is still thrown in our faces to this day as an example of White racism. Jews have had their own exclusive country clubs and resorts for decades that they were free to patronize; in fact they still do. In fact Jews have an entire country that is reserved for them and ONLY them with non-Jews tossed into concentration camps before forced expulsion.

    Most immigrants will do better than most native born. With the exception of undocumented migrants, most legal immigrants to the USA have to go through a rigorous selection process before they can get to the USA. It is mostly professional Asians that are able to immigrate to the USA. The trash from those countries are not able to make it to the USA.

    • Talltrees

      How about this selection process. A German student graduated from an Ivy League University with 4.0 GPA in engineering, but told he couldn’t stay here. His Indian classmates with 3.0 and below in engineering did stay with jobs waiting for them. True.

      You say it is mostly professional Asians able to immigrate to USA. So professional Europeans are not? How about graduates from Cambridge, Oxford, University of Heidelberg? Not good enough? It’s because they are White and European.

      • Bossman

        Professional Europeans may be less willing to go through the hassles to get a green card.

        • Talltrees

          Some Europeans claim they don’t want to come here for obvious reasons; however, this German student did. He applied during his first year of college. He also had relatives living here who would have sponsored him.

    The first two are nonsensical, the last one makes a certain amount of sense:

    A superiority complex

    We see the superiority complex every day among Blacks in the inner city. Or among Muslim peasants, Orthodox Jews, bascially any group other than White non-Jews. Perhaps the lack of a superiority complex does hold Whites back, though. Chua claims that she wants “All Americans” to adopt these “values.” This one is going to be challenge.

    Insecurity

    The author provides no sources for this claim, and I’m skeptical of it. Ask someone in the business world the major personality trait it takes to sell things and they’ll say “confidence.”

    The MSM will criticize this book, but ultimately it is just more cultural Marxist, blank slate propaganda, light on the evidence, heavy on the moralizing, and completely ignoring intelligence or making absurd claims about it’s malleability.

    • dean53

      • Mergatroyd

        Great. Then they should stay in their own countries. Jews have a homeland in Israel, Chinese in China. Both belong there.

        Why is it Chinese for China.
        Israel for Jews and Jews ONLY.

        But White countries for EVERYONE?

    • Mergatroyd

      Then they should stay in Nigeria and help their own people to make it a better place. Nigeria is listed as #16 on the Most Failed States in the world.
      There is not one single reason to import even one single African into the U.S. no matter how many degrees he may hold. Same for Asians.
      Asians belong in Asia. Nigerians belong in Nigeria. Period. Full Stop.

    • Most of their college degrees seem to be fraudulent. In the mid-1990s my bosses interviewed a Nigerian “engineer” with a Master’s Degree. The guy didn’t have the slightest idea what he was talking about, and knowing Nigeria’s legendary corruption, I am sure this is the rule there and not the exception.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Sounds like a degree from Tennessee State University. Not worth the paper it’s written on.

  • White Light

    Notice the exclusion of the Koreans and the Japanese from this list. Nigerians but not Koreans? Probably, she didn’t want to make this another book about “Asians,” as that would be too “controversial.” Plus, the example of the Japanese discredits the “tiger mother” explanation for Asian high-IQ.

    • WR_the_realist

      I can’t help but feel that she tossed Nigerians into the mix to avoid the accusations of racism. But it’s a feeble fig leaf and not likely to get her much protection.

  • galtonian

    In 2002 Amy Chua published a book entitled “World On Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability”

    In this book Chua described what she called “market-dominant minority groups” who demonstrate strikingly higher economic success in various nations throughout the world. She stated that the Chinese in the Philippines represent only 1% of the population but control 60% of the wealth; therefore the ethnic Chinese are often highly resented by the indigenous Filipinos. Chua recounts how her wealthy grandmother was murdered by her indigenous Filipino servant and that the indigenous Filipino police dragged their feet and did not vigorously pursue the murder investigation.

    In World On Fire Chua claimed that one particular tribe of Nigerians, the Igbo, appeared to be the most prominent market-dominant minority group within Nigeria. I have noticed that many of the more intellectual and prosperous of the Nigerian-Americans have Igbo names. Perhaps the Igbo people tend to have higher average IQs than other indigenous West African peoples. Maybe just like Jews tend to have higher IQs than other White ethnic groups, Igbos might have higher IQs than other Black ethnic groups.

    In World on Fire Chua mentioned that virtually all of the Billionaire Russian oligarchs were Jews but she noted that her husband Jed Rubenfeld was very uncomfortable with emphasizing this fact.

    Also in World On Fire Chua pointed out that much of the wealth in Africa is controlled by people of Indian and Lebanese descent.

    In her new book Chua apparently observes that Cuban immigrants (who are often ethnically pure White) seem to be more prosperous than other Hispanic immigrants (who are often Mestizo, Black, or Indio). In her book World on Fire, Chua claimed that pure Whites tend to be the market-dominant minority group in most Latin American nations and that they control far more wealth than the Mestizos, Blacks, and Indios.

  • DonReynolds

    I do not mind that these groups tend to be money-hungry and that is their primary motivation to drive their children like pigs to the market. Let them. What else do they have to look forward to? For these ethnic minorities, this is their ticket to respectability. Who cares?

  • Massif1

    Nigerians are superior to other groups? Maybe their crazy mindset and lack of deodorant use makes them superior to other Africans.

  • BaronBaal

    Unfortunately for Chua, the vast majority of Chinese moms are NOT “Tiger Moms”. Chinese society is a male dominated society, and most Chinese mothers spoil their children rotten- especially if they are boys. My Chinese wife has a tendency to spoil our son in such a way and I am the one who has to put my foot down when things get out of hand. This Chua woman is Westernized and is hardly typical of the average Chinese mother so instead of saying that the Chinese are superior when it comes to raising children what she should be saying is that she feels HER way of child raising is better. Not that I think it’s true that her way is better but seriously, this woman needs a reality check…

    • Jack Burton

      Oh look, another Mongolophile.

      Reading some of Chua’s examples of how she treated her daughters, the woman sounds insane and abusive.

      “In one extreme example, Chua mentioned that she had called one of her children “garbage,” a translation of a term her own father called her on occasion in her family’s native Hokkien dialect. Particularly controversial was the ‘Little White Donkey’ anecdote, where Chua described how she got her unwilling younger daughter to learn a very difficult piano piece. In Chua’s words, “… I hauled Lulu’s dollhouse to the car and told her I’d donate it to the Salvation Army piece by piece if she didn’t have ‘The Little White Donkey’ perfect by the next day. When Lulu said, ‘I thought you were going to the Salvation Army, why are you still here?’ I threatened her with no lunch, no dinner, no Christmas or Hanukkah presents, no birthday parties for two, three, four years. When she still kept playing it wrong”

  • WR_the_realist

    Amish are losers? Not in their own terms. Their population is still increasing, and while they are far from perfect people they generally succeed in raising their children well. Only if you define success by purely economic terms could Amish be called losers. Amish are more concerned about where they’ll be after they die, and not with how much money they have when they do.

  • RegisterToPost

  • Chris Granzow XI

    Nigerians, Indians, Iranians, Lebanese? What a joke. I wonder what her criteria was. In typical Chinese mother fashion she’s deciding who’s superior by the measure of who has the highest percentage of doctors and engineers (and clearly not taking quality into account, at that). She’s making the error that most academics make of judging who’s successful by who’s in college, and not by who’s actually successful in the real world.
    The groups she listed only number in the hundreds of thousands, giving her a pretty limited pool to draw observation from. I think if she were to break down “white” into individual European ethnic groups, she’d find that they’re far more successful. I’ve yet to meet a Scandinavian in Wisconsin, Illinois or Minnesota who didn’t have a degree or wasn’t in school to get one. What about German-Americans or Anglo-Americans? The only contribution to society and innovation that any people in her listed group have made (recently) is Sergey Brin.

    • Mergatroyd

      How about looking at empirical data such as cultural output? I listen to a lot of classical music and can’t think of an Asian or even Jewish composer on a par with Mozart, Bach, Wagner or Beethoven.

      Asians and Jews fall all over themselves to live in White-created cultures, which they can’t seem to create for themselves. Once they become members of our society, what do they do? Rip us Whites and our culture apart, while using OUR technology and language. How’s that for “chutzpah?”

      We need neither group in the U.S. They come here to steal what the White race has built.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

  • SiniticMan

    I applaud Maureen Callahan for her courage to speak up against the conspiracy that has been going on with Asian women and White men (both Indo-European and Jewish). I once voiced my contempt for Amy Chua and her Jewish husband here on Amren and was immediately censored. Now that Maureen has done it openly in the New York Post I guess that gives me the green light here?

    White women are on the defensive especially in places like New York, Northern California and Southern California. White women definitely loathe Asian women much more in Southern California where the culture is generally more debauched.and where racial self hatred/insecurity is most prevalent in Asian women. Asian women are literally taking a huge chunk of White men off of the dating/marriage market from White women. And I know damn well White women are indignant of this and I don’t buy their argument that at least they are taking the undesirable White males. I know this because I observe plenty of White couples in my daily life and compare the looks of the males of White/White couples with the males of White male/Asian women couples. They aren’t too different. Asian women pretty much take the nerdy/average white guys which a lot of young White women in college towns wouldn’t mind dating.if given the opportunity.

    It really surprises me that there are so much Jewish male/Asian female couples. This is an anomaly to me but what really doesn’t surprise me is that there are virtually no Jewish female/Asian male couples because I believe this is in large part due to a large racial phenotypical difference and cognitive difference. Jewish women have elevated verbal cognitive abilities relative to their below average visuo-spatial abilities. Whereas Indo-European Caucasian women who’s recent ancestry is further north tend to have greater visuo-spatial abilities relative to Jewish women and are more likely to date East Asian men.

    Jews are like the antithesis race to the East Asian Mongoloid race. This is because verbal communication in itself is already insignificant compared to non-verbal communication in our day to day lives and since Jews have extremely elevated verbal capabilities relative to their Visuo-Spatial; they are indeed the exact opposite of East Asians in every way possible. In other words Jews excel in fields/activities that requires high verbal intelligence but verbal isn’t all that important relative to non-verbal intelligence to begin with as an empirical fact and as a cultural matter to East Asians. Thankfully the vast majority of communication is non-verbal and since we East Asians have extremely elevated non-verbal (Visuo-Spatial) relative to our verbal, we basically dominate naturally because non-verbal (Visuo-Spatial) intelligence is basically raw performance intelligence.

    When Jews communicate, its like they are literally reading from a book in their head instead of actually communicating. Jews seem kind of absurd to East Asians because they will always judge you by your words. It shows in their initial eager anticipation of your words when you engage in conversation with them. Whereas with East Asians, communication and judgement is already made before verbal exchange through our sharp eyes. We are much more sharper and quicker than they are as long as we keep our mouths shut because its so hard to gain their trust once you start speaking with them. They can reason faster through what you say even if you didn’t actually mean it. They will come to quick inferred conclusions often times correct but still annoying to East Asians because things are never end all/be all to us in the eternal long run. In other words, its best just not to deal with them from my personal perspective. They’ll never agree with you if you aren’t excessively verbal with them yourself and even after that its no guarantee.

    Amy Chua probably has a high verbal herself being in Law and all and thats why she married Reubenfeld. She is also insecure and racially self loathing as with most Asian women in the debauched zones of America. Asian women all over the internet voice their joy about the benefits of being with a White man. This I think is short term joy on their part which is induced by their short sighted and individualistic/effeminate brains.

    • BaronBaal

      Excellent post! Chua is, in my opinion, a freak of nature and she obviously doesn’t represent most of the Chinese women out there. Jews and East Asians are polar opposites. Jews are mouthy, brash, pushy, and lack decency and morality in most cases while East Asians are the exact opposite.

      • Mergatroyd

        Yes, damn them. But your focus is on the wrong group.

        Which Irish Catholic organizations advocated to flood this country with non-whites?

        Which equivalent Irish political groups pushed for an increase in immigration, provided lawyers and contributed vast amounts of money?

        Ted Kennedy was a front man, too drunk and dumb to have written such a bill. He was either bribed, threatened or extorted to push the bill, the authors and pushers of this bill hid behind him.

        The bill was written by two Jews, Javits and Celler and then pushed by the American Jewish Congress, the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, and the American Federation of Jews from Eastern Europe.

        “Most important for the content of immigration reform [i.e., anti-restrictionism], the driving force at the core of the movement, reaching back to the 1920s, were Jewish organizations long active in opposing racial and ethnic quotas. These included the American Jewish Congress, the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, and the American Federation of Jews from Eastern Europe. Jewish members of the Congress, particularly representatives from New York and Chicago, had maintained steady but largely ineffective pressure against the national origins quotas since the 1920s…. Following the shock of the Holocaust, Jewish leaders had been especially active in Washington in furthering immigration reform. To the public, the most visible evidence of the immigration reform drive was played by Jewish legislative leaders, such as Representative Celler and Senator Jacob Javits of New York.”

    White gentile superiority speaks for itself with clear demonstration – by inventing everything relevant in the world and by being the proud torch holders of human civilization. That including building the most desirable and humane places to live in. We educate them, we feed them, we house them, and it is our hospitals they check into, our
    hospitality they take full advantage of. The opposite is almost never the case, and that clearly means something. It is those races who have no real demonstration of superiority,
    do they resort to trivial semantic issues of academia while also completely ignoring
    the fact that institutional racism, affirmative action, and a silenced, oppressed
    majority, prevent whites from claiming their rightful position of superiority within
    their own nations.

    Mrs Chau is a prime example of all that is resentful and despicable about the non-whites. There is nothing more profound and prevalent than non-white audacity. It is this audacity that succeeds non-white and befalls whites.

    I live in a very traditional European town; however, it is becoming less so, particularly, many Indians attending medical school and applying for residencies at a nearby university. Not to mention black Muslims doing the scut work. I speak from a lot of experience when I say I refuse to be treated by them.

  • SiniticMan

    I’ve been around the internet for quite a while and noticed that Black women, feminists, and Asian women have one thing all in common; they are incredibly insecure with their situation and use the internet to vent out their frustration as a means to mitigate tension. But this of course merely treats the disease in my view.

    Specifically on the Asian women/White men issue. There is a large racial component to the problem as well as sociological. I assume people here already know about the hypothesis which argues that racial phenotype (average muscle mass, avg. limb proportion, avg. brain size) affects the sexual selection process between the races with regards to gender in modern post-industrial/liberal societies. I’ve seen the thesis proposed here many times but of course it has never been officially published by any intellectual. The other factor is more cultural. A liberal atmosphere where there is a breakdown of the immediate family and extended family coupled with the diminishing of patriarchy is a breeding ground for out-marriage.

    Asian women typically start off by voicing how incompatible Asian males are in the behavioral sense and then voice their long term concern about Asian culture. Some will even go as far as to say Asian men are just not as physically attractive. To me, it depends on what you find attractive in the first place which is in large part affected by your surrounding. But in an objective sense, Caucasians generally do have more developed/visible sexual secondary characteristics and longer limbs than East Asians. Then they will finish it off about how liberated they are and how the entire world (especially Asian men) hates to see them out in public which I think is definitely true. White women and Asian men are absolutely fed up with it in areas like Norcal, Socal. and NY. White women feel more of a pity/disdain for Asian males rather than concerned about why we rarely take the initiative. White women perceive us as complacent on the matter and have nothing but disdain/pity for us but this is far from the case. We are just incredibly restrained in actuality and less likely to take collective action in small bouts but from time to time in the long run, East Asians are by nature extremely collective.

    I think their satisfaction in being with White men is short term though. People that have fallen through the cracks are probably genetically predisposed to a certain extent to fall through the cracks in life and have already accepted this subconsciously. It reveals itself in the decisions they choose.

    I think the liberal atmosphere is in large part affected by economics in a post industrial society. We’ve never been here before in history. You can’t save a house on the edge of a cliff that is about to collapse. You can salvage the house as a last resort and start all over. That is what happens when interracial unions happen. New families are begun on weak foundations, the house collapses again, trust ever more diminishing. And when the house finally collapses in the national sense, the offsprings of these unions are without any social capital. They can only find solace in the fact that they are members of a much larger abstract community, a nation that was born from abstract ideas. While everyone else clings onto their original tribe and hoard true wealth for themselves in an effort to start over, the mixed race offsprings who are often poor because they have no social capital (community) and thus real capital will turn to communism. Then America will be divided into a degenerate mixed race communist horde class and another class of Americans that strives to cling onto their original tribe (hyphenated with American). The communists will win through use of force and force everyone else to be mixed race like themselves.

    Black women see the phenomena between Asian women and White men as ever more proof of an unjust world that requires their immense human agency. Black women are literally all over the internet expressing there collective identity concern. People like Tyra Banks, Oprah Winfrey, and Whoopi Goldberg talk about the plight of Black women all the time.
