The White Myth of the Model Minority: Disguising Racial Oppression

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The dominant white group and its leaders stand in a position of such great power that they rate groups of color socially and assign them “grades” on a type of “minority report card.” Whites give Asian American groups a “model minority” rating, while other groups of color receive much lower marks as “problem minorities.” Still, the hierarchical positions that whites are willing to give any group of color are significantly below whites on the ladder. Today, many media and scholarly discussions suggest Asian Americans are treated as white or “honorary white” by most white Americans, yet our data from 43 field interviews with Asian Americans show that they do not in any sense hold such a status in this society.
