Unlike Mexicans, Asians really do have conservative values of hard work, delayed gratification, scholarship and appreciation of capitalism. Over half of Asians have a bachelor’s degree or higher, while the national rate is 30 percent for a BA.
Asians are the highest-income, best-educated tribe in America as a result of their industriousness. Why are so many [...]
Taxpayer-supported state colleges are supposed to provide a higher education at a reasonable cost to the young people who are residents. That’s why in-state students get lower subsidized tuition than outsiders.
But lately in California, not so much. The state’s university system has forgotten its mission to educate California kids in part because it is low [...]
Karma is sweet. After Shaima Alawadi was found dead in her southern California home with a note nearby telling the Iraqi refugee to go home, Muslims, leftists and the media went into full shriek mode about horrible violent Americans, particularly those critical of Islam. Oh, the terrible Islamophobia!
The New York Times reported at the time, [...]
Last fall, Democrat mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio promised that he would end the scrutiny of Muslims practiced by the NYPD that kept the city safe from terror attacks since 9/11. Now he is the mayor and he is fulfilling his promise.
Hey, what could possibly go wrong?
De Blasio appealed to the over one million [...]
In September of last year, Gov Brown signed the misleadingly named “TRUST Act” into law. The legislation ended the law enforcement partnership with Washington in the Secure Communities program which local police hand over already arrested foreign lawbreakers to feds for deportation.
Obviously, Secure Communities makes public safety a lot easier to achieve by helping scoop [...]
It’s funny how foreigners will cross boiling hot deserts to reach America, but once here, they avoid Americans like the plague and gather in ethnic enclaves where they erase the United States as much as possible. In some balkanized locales of extreme hispanicity, like Miami, learning to speak English is not necessary and the foreigners [...]
Your tax dollars at work. As noted in the chart below from the LAUSD 2013-14 fact sheet, approximately 80 percent of district students qualify for free or reduced-price meals, so the taxpayer is dinged for the appalling waste of food.
Since 73 percent of the LAUSD enrollment is hispanic, the taxpayer cost of feeding so many [...]
A corner of southern Crowdifornia arrived at an undesirable milestone in 2013, when Los Angeles County became the most populous county in America with an even 10 million souls as of last July.
The LA Times tippy-toed around in its coverage, not being too boosterish though crowdiness is good for business. The paper probably didn’t want [...]
First, the clever animators of Taiwan illustrate the corruption case of California State Senator Leland Yee so far:
How the mighty have fallen. The Democrat Yee checked all the correct liberal boxes: diverse (extra credit), immigration permissiveness, indulgence toward criminals, and pro gun control.
But Yee went full-tilt arms merchant to Islamic terrorists.
Aside from the whole grade-B [...]
In San Francisco, the low-intensity warfare of hipsters and immigrants against tech workers has been boiling along. The city has experienced a substantial boom in tech business, with new workers paying top dollar for apartments, and housing has gotten more expensive as supply declines and demand increases.
The alleged suffering of certain victim groups caused the [...]
I heard a radio version of this story on Friday. The idea is to take a bunch of Mexican immigrants and teach them computer coding to liberate them from the tomato fields and get swell jobs in tech. They are getting a bachelor’s degree in computer science in three years, even though many start not [...]
In 1996, Californians voted with a 54 percent majority to prohibit racial preferences via Proposition 209. Race hucksters have been squawking ever since, and certain institutions, particularly the University of California, have come up with a string of squirrelly work-arounds, such as “holistic” admissions.
The latest liberal revolt against achievement is SCA5, a bill passed in [...]
