    Khmer Americans who were foreign born or came to America around 1 years old had children at young ages. Now their kids are in their teens and are having children. What’s going on here? It seems like the cycle continues.

    It’s the human cycle. Some people will have children early and some won’t. What’s your point? Why are you always pulling the race card?

      Because I see Khmer people becoming like Blacks and Latinos…the poorer and less educated race. Nothing I can say if you’re okay with that….but don’t you want more for our people? Our people are going the wrong way. Khmer girls in their early 20s should be getting educated and pursuing careers….not pumping our babies and rely on government assistance. My opinion.

      Hey, there are poor and uneducated people within every group.

      What I’m seeing is that there’s a rising slope of accomplishments within our people more than ever in America, after the war. I think you’re not giving enough credits to our own people.

      Khmer people for the most part are less successful than other races. Cambodia is still one of the poorest and least educated country in Asia, as well as in America. We’re just not competitive against other people for jobs and everything else. Part of the problem is that Khmer people become grandparents in their 30s. Having children in your teens and 20s is almost guaranteed poverty.

      And most of the successful Khmers are Chinese.
