Hawkins makes some good points, but he missed a big one: our failed educational system. Our high tech society doesn't have much use for people who are unskilled and barely literate. Those people are doomed to poverty. Bust the teacher's unions, and privatize education.. put the public schools out of business!

Our education system is doing marvelously-- given the inputs with which it has to work.

When you see America lagging behind other developed nations in every subject, you must remember that we've flooded ourselves with millions of sub-85 IQ 3rd Worlders from unassimilable minorities and are paying the price for it.

Asian Americans outperform the entire world save a single district in China and, were they compared to the entire nation, they would be #1 in the world.

White Americans outperform all of Europe save Finland.

Hispanic Americans outperform all of Latin America.
