3. No work ethics?!?!?
How do you think they came by their math skills? You think they slept with the calculus book under their pillow?

As someone who went to school with many southeast Asians and Indians, let me clue you in. On average they worked Waaayyy harder than anyone else. Underestimate them at your peril.
