Love this essay by Jeff Yang. He shows exactly why the “model minority myth” is dangerous. quote: “the tragic history of antisemitism teaches us how this kind of ethnic admiration is but one face of a coin that can flip all too quickly to its uglier side.
“Minority groups that are perceived to have obtained disproportionate success provoke envy, misdirected scapegoating and ultimately, a bloody backlash. That’s especially the case when the minority group is one that is phenotypically obvious — and even more so when that phenotype ties them to countries that are in direct geopolitical rivalry with ours.”
