Tiger mom, Amy Chua, is back with her latest book, “The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America”.
In the book, Chua deems eight cultural groups in the US, superior to others. And, though the book is not due out until February, Twitter criticisms are already flying, with many calling Chua “racist” and a self-promoter.
Those groups, according to the authors, are Mormons, Cuban exiles, Nigerian Americans, Indian Americans, Chinese Americans, American Jews, Iranian Americans and Lebanese Americans. And the reasons they excel, the book declares, is because of a basic “triple package” formula: a superiority complex, insecurity, and impulse control.
Of course, many are crying foul and calling the Tiger mom an elitist.
There’s no denying she’s right! All those ethnic groups are successful but they are not the ONLY groups that are successful. What is considered successful? Is Chua just telling it like it is or self promoting?
