as to you earlier post in america white people have a cultural obsession with blacks that has put them in a very unique position. Let's also not deny the huge extent collaboration among different cultural styles shaped american popular music.
I myself love classic rnb,soul and blaxploitation films. but when you look at the crap being peddled by lil waynei have little doubt that artistic greatness is not based on genetics. and the never ending market for subpar music these days might suggest taste has less to do with talent than white guilt and conformity.
btw you look like a thai fighter. whats with the feeling towards mexicans? they are world renowned in boxing for their heart and ferocity . anyone who appreciates martial arts should be able to respect that.

What I think is an interesting phenomenon is that some White people will claim that another race is "smarter" than they are when a few data sets imply it, but this phenomena seems exclusive* to Whites. I have yet to observe other races doing the same thing when the data leans in that direction. Certainly it must happen, but I haven't seen it. Based on experience alone I feel confident in believing that this phenomenon exhibits itself at a greater frequency in Whites than other races. I wonder why that is? (I have my theories)
I'm very curious to know what our Non-White members think of this. Do you guys think my observation is wrong? Do you think it's correct? If so, do you have an explanation? (I probably should have created a thread for this)

This phenomenon could create the false impression that I possess more knowledge than I really do. Truth―things as they are―is very important to me.
My goal in life is to understand the world I live in. Philosophy alone is no good unless it is anchored to reality. To do that requires an understanding of science (space) and history (time). Therefore, Philosophy+science+history=The complete epistemological package.
On being told that someone had given up working on his PhD, as he decided he had nothing original to say. Wittgenstein replied, "For that action alone they should have given him his PhD."
Now what have cambodian-americans done? How about Cambodians in general? Nothing, your people havent done anything, havent invented anything, are not known for anything

"In order that the masses themselves may not guess what they are about we further distract them with amusements, games, pastimes, passions, people's palaces. . . Soon we shall begin through the press to propose competitions in art, in sport of all kinds: these interests will finally distract their minds from questions in which we should find ourselves compelled to oppose them." - The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion (1903), PROTOCOL NO. 13
with over 31 million mexican-americans, your people should be on the same level as african-americans when it comes to producing iconic sports athletes and entertainers but sadly you guys arent
another interesting fact is mexican-americans have high obesity and incarceration rates. also i think mexican-americans lead the nation when it comes to dropping out of high school and teenage pregnancies
Play fair, I say.
What would make sense is comparing third generation Mexican-Americans with African Americans.
Don't mind me for using common sense. It's kind of my thing.
