Answering a moron.
The problem here is that Asians are basically the best scientists, as seen in their dominance of science departments at top US research universities…
No. The “dominance” is due to:
1. Asian ethnocentrism vs. White universalism. Asian PIs typically hire Asian underlings. Meanwhile, White PIs will often – in some cases preferentially – hire Asian underlings because of the issues listed below. There is a continuous ratchet here moving in the direction of the displacement of Whites by Asians in STEM. Asians hire Asians out of ethnocentrism and rampant ethnic nepotism, while Whites hire Asians out of Universalist naiveté and ethnic masochism. Of course, then, the Asians will “dominate.” It is always amusing to see a scientific paper with all-Chinese authorship, assuming the lab is from China, and then seeing that is from the USA instead. American labs are full of Chinese, with Chinese PIs excluding Whites and hiring only Chinese.
2. Asians are willing to, at least initially, work for less (cheap labor) and for longer hours. The latter holds because they do very little actual work – much time instead being used to play the stock market, steal data and ideas, sit around and gibber in Mandarin (loudly screeching), etc.
3. Despite their time wasting, Asians produce a lot of data, advancing their careers and making them more attractive to White PIs. How do they do so? Read Bottle of Lies to understand the corrupt Asian biomedical research culture. When you are willing to invent, manipulate, steal, etc. data then, yes, you can produce much “data.” Two anecdotes come to mind, told to me by various colleagues over the years (presented here in the most general terms, with no pertinent details, of course).
First, a Chinese working for a White PI produced an “important paper” by showing that gene “X” is not expressed in cell line “Y” after treatment “Z” – with high clinical significance. Hoorah! Problem is, after the Chinese parlayed that into a higher position elsewhere, a White researcher could not reproduce those results. After much investigation, it was discovered that the Chinese got the “desired” data by exposing the blot to film for an extremely absurdly short period of time, so there was not enough time for the band to show. If I recall correctly what I was told about the incident, for normalization, the blot filter was cut and the area of the filter for the normalization gene was exposed for the correct time, disguising the fact that the experimental band was not present because of the short exposure. Of course, the White PI did not get upset at the Chinese fraud but instead at the White who exposed the fraud.
Second, a grant reviewer reviewing a grant put forth by a research group led by Asians discovered that some of the blots in the grant were from a previous paper by the same group, turned upside down, and relabeled as something else. Essentially, fabricated data
4. Asians demonstrate ethnocentrism by showing favoritism in the grant and paper reviews of their co-ethnics, advancing the research careers of those co-ethnics as opposed to Whites, whose work is more harshly (perhaps, unfairly) reviewed..
5. If any of the Asian “scientists” are (ostensibly) female, then some White PIs no doubt hire and promote them for, shall we say, Derbyshirian reasons.
6. I documented incidents (at my previous Western Biopolitics blog, I believe) of Asians (in that case, South Asians) sabotaging the research of Whites working in the same lab as them.
7. The presence of larger numbers of Asians in American science not only makes STEM careers less attractive because of low wages, but also because of low prestige (an occupation highly represented by a bunch of clannish, gibbering, corrupt foreigners), and an alienating and unpleasant work environment (dominated by White-hating, ethnocentric Asians, screeching in foreign languages and eating foul-smelling food). So, educated Whites go into other professions, pushed out of STEM in favor of Asiatics.
