Huff Post: Don’t call me a model minority

posted by Randall

Time Magazine Asian American Whiz Kids coverBernadette Lim is tired of being told she’s smart because she’s Asian.

She’s sick of hearing her interest in biology and physics is “typical.”

Lim is done with being stripped “of my humanity” as she put it in her blog in the Huffington Post.

The Harvard student has had it with the model minority myth.

The stereotype she says diverts attention from the discrimination Asian Americans face today and faced yesterday.

The myth “undermines the formation of positive relationships” with other minority groups.

What has your experience been with the model minority stereotype whether you’re Asian American or another ethnicity?

You can read how Lim dispels the model minority myth in the Huffington Post.
