Why are Asian-Americans seen as a model minority, and why is it problematic to be associated with a so-called “positive” stereotype? How does the type of racial discrimination and prejudice faced by Asian-Americans compare or contrast with that of other people of color?

Chou is co-author of The Myth of the Model Minority: Asian Americans Facing Racism.
