Whenever a minority is too successful, we tend to label it negatively. We say it's too uppity or greedy or doesn't know its place.
See the links I've added to my Greedy Indians page for info on the original "greedy" minority, the Jews. In particular, note Zoltan Grossman's fine PowerPoint presentation, Rich Tribes, Rich Jews: Comparing the New Anti-Indianism to Historic Anti-Semitism.
Perhaps coincidentally, both groups were persecuted, hunted down, and killed by Western nations for being un-Christian. Is that what happens when you get in the way of the Jesus juggernaut?
