Over at VDARE.com, I review Amy Chua's bestseller.
Do check out this video from the 1990s of Mrs. Noh Nang Ning encouraging her 9-year-old niece's white rival in figure skating to practice hard by describing to the child the glowing future that she's building for herself in the Ice Capades:
"First, you play Beauty. Then you play ... Beast! Then you get too fat they kick you out of show, you have to scrape ice to make snowcone to sell in stands. Nobody want you, nobody love you, then you die."
