PBS: The 7 Things White Americans Can Learn from Asian & Other Immigrants

posted by Randall

Statue of LibertyFigure this one out. Hispanics in the United States are behind whites in nearly every major category–poverty rates, dropout rates and access to health care. So why then do Hispanics live nearly two years longer than whites in the United States?

PBS explored that paradox with journalist Claudia Kolker and author of the book, the Immigrant Advantage. They came up with a list of the 7 things White Americans can learn from immigrants.

The list includes everything from saving money to staying healthy after pregnancy. The complete list and interview here.

Thanks for Tony Ramirez for pointing this story out to us.
