Asian-Americans and the "Model Minority"
What's your opinion of Asian-Americans being regarded as the "model minority"?
I read in some articles today that the "model minority" thing is used as a tool to advance racist white peoples' interests. It harms both Asians and non-Asian minorities. It harms groups like African Americans by promoting the narrative that Asians can get by without government assistance yet black people can't. It also harms Asians by setting stereotypes and high expectations for them, as well as splitting them from other minority groups who would otherwise be allies against discrimination.
