Asian-Americans are often stereotyped as a model minority that excel in math and science, but this seemingly innocous stereotype actually comes at the expense of black Americans.
As such, the model minority myth is rooted in anti-blackness.
I have benefited from the model minority myth over and over again in my life, eventually causing me pain and trauma.
The model minority myth was so deeply ingrained, I couldn’t fathom an existence where I wasn’t a doctor.
Are we really going to sit around and wait to see how long the transient privilege of being the model minority lasts?
