Asian Americans are Not the “Model Minority” :Asian Americans are wrongly assumed to be doing well, uniformly and virtually without exception.
It is true that on average Asian Americans report household incomes that are on average higher than others — even Whites.
On average, Asian Americans have more schooling, but, on average, they enjoy less economic advantage as a result.
The figures are inflated for Asian Americans because of the inclusion of Asian foreign nationals.
Asian Americans themselves may deny, or perhaps not be aware, of the disparities among Asian Americans or the history of the community.
