Some stats I found while listening to Glen Loury and John McWhorter debate the Harvard admissions court case. 6 of 10 of the selective enrollment slots go to Asian students, despite them being 1) The poorest community in NYC (or at least highest % of their group in poverty) and 2) The smallest population.
Basically, Asian families have a culture that enables them to focus on their children's success. Sadly, far too many communities don't havet this work ethic. But there is a pattern, and if followed it could do much better than railing on about "systemic racism" as critics of Coleman Hughes like to do.
“The Non-Hispanic Black poverty rate fell significantly from 2015 to 2016, from 21.2 to 19.2 percentage points, while Hispanics and Non-Hispanic Asians had the highest poverty rates, at 23.9 and 24.1 percent, respectively, in 2016.” Non-Hispanic White poverty is 13.4 percent.
