What makes you say he doesn't know what it's like to be a tiger cub, and what more would you say there is to the story?

He doesn't know what it's like to be a tiger cub because he says straight forwardly that he's never been one. His opinions are based on research and observation and I say there's more to the story because his research is incomplete and he needs to pay a visit to West Coast Asian Americans. We're quite different that the people he's been talking to.

Where does he say that in the article? I can't find it. He says that he grew up in a suburb where there were no other Asians, and then went to Rutgers. Rutgers isn't good enough for most Asian parents, but it's still pretty good. Looks like a tiger cub to me.

I don't see why tiger cubs on the West Coast would be much different from the ones on the East Coast, though there are probably more fellow tiger cubs on the West Coast to take the edge off the pain with.
