Tiger Mom turns Troll Mom with "The Triple Package"

4 years ago122 views

Self-proclaimed "Tiger Mom" turned troll Amy Chua is back with a sure Pulitzer winner with her new book 'The Triple Package,' where she argues that some ethnic and religious groups are just superior to others.

Chua and her co-author hubbie Jed Rubenfeld use statistics, which we all know are impossible to play with and manipulate, and some anecdotal evidence to claim that some groups are just better than others and that everyone else is pulling America down into the gutter.

Conveniently, the Chinese Chua, actually half-Chinese as she's also half-Filipino, and the Jewish Rubenfeld belong to two of the supposed super groups. According to these two hacks the chosen are: Jewish, Indian, Chinese, Iranian, Lebanese-Americans, Nigerians, Cuban Exiles and Mormons.

Chua and her other half call these "cultural" groups rather than "ethnic" or "religious." The dynamic duo feel that they've identified three qualities that will put you on the path to wealth and power: superiority, insecurity and impulse control.

The authors say, "Although rarely mentioned in media reports the studies said to show the demise in upward mobility largely exclude immigrants and their children." All of the groups profiled by the authors are done so only as American immigrants, except for Jews and Mormons. Apparently Chua and Co. feel that these religious groups dominate Catholics, Protestants, Buddhists, atheists and Muslims, who didn't even get mentioned in the book.

While it's true that immigrants in the US have succeeded, doesn't that term include almost all of the US population? Aren't people more than just religion and ethnicity? Wonder what the book signing will be like?
