NAM as non-Asian minority

... now constitutes the first entry in the Urban Dictionary. Great work everybody!

Oh wow, even more important than NAM. Submitted an entry. As soon as it gets approved by the editors, I'll provide a link.

I actually prefer NNAM (Non North Asian Minority) to NAM since there are huge differences between North and South Asians. The average IQ of India, for instance, is only 81.

Do you know if there is a disparity in the success of North and South Asians in the US? And I'm assuming that North Asia is China, Mongolia, Korea and Japan.

That's a fair point, although Filipinos and Indians do well in the US, exceptionally so in the latter case. NNAM over NAM is relevant in the cases of Hmong and the Vietnamese though.


See here for some insight into your question based on research done by the CIS.

The Indians in the US do well so far because they were the far right of the Indian Bell Curve

But it's a very shallow right side of the curve:


If you go to India and see normal Indians you will find them to be not much different from blacks in their behavior.
