    The Most successful ethnic group in America

    At an Onyejekwe family get-together, you canít throw a stone without hitting someone with a masterís degree. Doctors, lawyers, engineers, professors ó every family member is highly educated and professionally successful, and many have a lucrative side gig to boot. Parents and grandparents share stories of whose kid just won an academic honor, achieved an athletic title or performed in the school play. Aunts, uncles and cousins celebrate one anotherís job promotions or the new nonprofit one of them just started. To the Ohio-based Onyejekwes, this level of achievement is normal.

    I mentored and work with a young Nigerian engineer. He is sharp. He is also an officer in the military reserves.

    Having been part of the British Empire, the common language in Nigeria is English. There are several local languages but, if they go to school, they are very good in English. I have proof read many technical reports from people for which English is their second language. It can be a chore. This young man's reports require little language related changes and only minor technical edits.

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    I am working with a Nigerian government official on a project.

    He is not sharp. I gave him my bank account number, as he instructed, and provided him with Earnest Money...but he still cannot manage to wire my $1,250,000 US into my bank account. He had trouble getting the wire form completed, and now he's not answering my emails.

    Asians take pride in getting a good education and being a professional.
    They take pride in their families and caring for them. They're tough!

    1) Non-hispanic immigrants tend to be very successful in America. We tend to get the cream of the crop from people who just can't walk across the border.

    2) Niger African-Americans, as blacks, get huge amounts of racial preferences. Blacks need only show up to class to graduate and get a job in any field they choose. No need to actually be qualified. Asians and whites have to earn their degrees.

    3) The only alleged engineer mentioned in the article is a woman ex-engineer turned professor. And, her field of engineering isn't mentioned. Niger African-Americans might be the most educated ethnic group in America, but no doubt most of those degrees are in relatively soft (bullsh!t) subjects.
