IMPORTING THE SUPERIOR CULTURE:

Hispanics Were the Only Major Group to See Poverty Drop Last Year (NEIL SHAH, 9/22/14, WSJ)

Poverty among Hispanics--who comprise about 17% of the U.S. population--fell from 25.6% in 2012 to 23.5% in 2013 as this group's median income rose an inflation-adjusted 3.5%. That allowed the overall U.S. poverty rate to decline.

While poverty reduction among Hispanics is good news, it's notable that no other major racial or ethnic group saw a statistically significant drop.

They're the only ones with the Puritan work ethic.
