I've posted this elsewhere and it helps us to make sense of how Japanese-Brazilians outperform their countrymen when it comes to education.

Figures for São Paulo and Paraná states where over 90% of Japanese community lives. Also for Londrina:

People with college degree / % of people over 10 years

SÃO PAULO
Whites ------- 3,507,248 --- 15.43%
Mixed ---------- 401,110 ---- 3.87%
Asians --------- 150,579 --- 28.59%
Blacks --------- 109,746 ---- 5.37%

PARANÁ
Whites --------- 750,363 --- 12.00%
Mixed ----------- 78,446 ---- 3.45%
Asians ---------- 26,664 --- 23.75%
Blacks ---------- 13,497 ---- 4.47%

And in my city, Londrina:
Whites ---------- 52,827 --- 17.11%
Asians ----------- 5,724 --- 33.70%
Mixed ------------ 4,847 ---- 5.07%
Blacks ----------- 1,136 ---- 6.04%

Census 2010



In both São Paulo and Paraná states, Japanese, by far, outperform Whites (2:1) and Mixed (7:1). In Londrina, more than 1/3 of Japanese over 10 years old hold a college degree.

It's a cultural thing. Japanese are very hardworking, perfectionist and disciplined (making a generalization here, of course). They demand a lot of their children, and as result, they achieve both academically and professionally.

Thank you, Linguine! You're always kind. Yes, it's indeed a vibrant community, part of Londrina's people mosaic.

Thanks, papperback!

Northern Paraná is indeed the most diverse area of Brazil just after São Paulo. People from almost 40 different countries acquired land from the British Paraná Plantation.

Although not touristic, it's definitely a very interesting place to visit, and better yet, to live in.

Are you calling all Asians "Japanese"?

Yes, as they makeup about 90% of the Asian community in Brazil. Chinese and Koreans started to arrive only in the 1990's and they're heavily concentrated in São Paulo.

Brazilian Census actually use the outdated term "yellow" which leads some mixed people on Northeast/North Brazil to state they're "yellow". You can clearly see it as Japanese community in these regions are negligible and the income/levels of education of people declaring they're yellow it's the same of the mixed.

Therefore, you can only use Yellow=Asian=Japanese on São Paulo and Paraná states. In any case, over 90% of Japanese Brazilians live in those two states.

I find it quiet offensive using derogatory terms like "Yellow" or "N'gro" to make reference to people..though I am not either but because you have been writing some statistics you should make accurate reference (otherwise people like me wouldn't understand) .e.g you could call Asian Japanese instead of blatantly using term Asian.

As I said, virtually all Asian people are Japanese, that's why I used both terms interchangeably. They do the same in South Africa as 95% of their Asian community is Indian, so they used both terms interchangeably as well.

Also, you shouldn't assume that something offensive in English will be in Portuguese. Different languages carries different meanings and as the knowledge of English is very very low in Brazil, people will not import those meanings into Portuguese.

Although "yellow" is an outdated term in Brazil (I would guess 90% of Brazilians don't know it anymore), it's not offensive. For some reason, Brazilian Statistical Office doesn't change it and I think they should to provide us accurate data.

As I mentioned on the other post, the term "yellow" clearly is not designating Asian Brazilians outside São Paulo/Paraná.

Yuri,

I am not trying to argue with you rather I am implying that this forum is an "International" forum hence what may be a local/Cultural lingo in Brazil (in Portuguese) that may not be well understood internationally.

That's precisely why I explained, even the tiny boring details, how the term "yellow" is (not) used in Brazil.

Good question. I believe I need another Photobucket account. Does someone know when they'll return?
