AMY CHUA EXPLAINS WHY CHINESE MOTHERS ARE SUPERIOR.

It’s nice to see this stirring endorsement of rigorous bourgeois values coming from someone nonwhite. Because if it came from a white person, it would be racist. Chua even pretty much says that. . . .

Meanwhile, there’s this question: “One wonders why Asians, if they’ve got things so figured out, need to emigrate to the land of the substandard ‘Westerner’ in order to live prosperously and free.” Yes, one might also wonder what Westerners know — or, at any rate, knew until recently — that China didn’t.

UPDATE: Reader Leo Jiang writes: “What’s so superior about taking a whole decade to realize I’m not a piano prodigy? Congrats to Amy that her children are, I guess.”
