most motels and corner stores in my hood are indian owned. yes they own the store but they'll aslo work 24/7 in a blue collar manner and never will enjoy that money
Also they usually have a lot of "family money" invested in that store as well correct? Culturally speaking.

seriously, does anyone know any blue collar indians? I grew up middle class so I got to see people of all types. all the indians I meet are in STEM or medical. I guess they're also well known for being business owners ie running roach motels & restaurants.
I'd say most of them are 1st generation immigrants. Many saw their parents and family struggle initially and put in the effort to become successful themselves

Iirc Nigerian-Americans are the most successful of any immigrant group
"The Migration Policy Institute reports that 29% of Nigerian Americans have a master's degree, PhD, or an advanced professional degree (compared to 11% of the U.S population overall)"

That's very common thing a stark difference you see in outcomes with those that are more operator focused vs seeing the forest from the trees. The most successful family I know leveraged up their motel/hotel empire and diversified into a successful biotech company and have 2B AUM in their family office.

true, I do remember one time hiring an electrician to come do an estimate and he was indian. anyway its clear that indians have that asian mindset of understanding the value of education. and delayed gratification since they're cheap as fuck :mamoru:

Lot of truck drivers around here.

Edit: but the theme outside of tech/finance is owning whatever it is. Convenient store, motels, etc
