Acting White

American conservatives have been telling for now decades now, that one of the reasons Afro-Americans underperform is college is because studying is acting white, and acting white doesnt make you popular. Two researchers from Harvard University found out that blacks with 4.0 grade average are indeed not so popular. Read the whole paper.

My question is to what extent this applies to European minority groups? Like Turks in Germany e.g.? And would it be the same for men as for women?
