The best reporting on social science statistics, like the best reporting in most areas, comes from The Onion: What do you think of this? And that standard of whiteness not only erases the experience of people of color; it reflects the actual exclusion of these people in poly life and communities. But it seems to eventually settle on a thesis that black people really are strongly underrepresented.
Indian Americans[ edit ] The model minority label also includes South Asian communities, in particular, Indian Americansbecause of their high socioeconomic success. But, Indian-Asians face a type of racism and discrimination, despite their Model Minority status, that other Asians do not face.
One of the forms of this is discrimination based on religion, whether that be Hinduism or Islam - it influences their treatment. Often times, South Asians in America face racism that that is a result of mislabeling like being called Middle-Eastern or Muslim by the way they look, whether they actually identify with those groups.
So while South and South-East Asians reap some benefits of their Model Minority status, this does not mean they do not suffer harmful stereotypes as well and this further proves the harmful classification of all Asian-Americans into a "Model Minority".
The mass grouping of all different Asian ethnicities into one "positive" stereotype deligimatizes the problems that certain Asian immigrants face, because the majority might not face those same negative stereotypes.
There is conflict within the Indian-Asian immigrant population in the US, as some exalt their "positive" minority status and wish to uphold it, resulting in complacency when attacked racially and even sometimes going as far as to support political candidates that are anti-immigration.
The other side of the conflict is those who are effected by racial stereotypes and wish to change that fact instead of accepting it, who believe they should essentially give up their coveted status to stand with other ethnic and racial minority groups against their common white oppressor.
This has resulted in several stereotypes such as that of the "Indian Doctor". An empirical literature review   shows that most of the existing data used to justify the model minority image with Asian American academic achievement is aggregated and as a result, ignores important differences among individual Asian ethnic groups.
Although many Asian Americans have succeeded academically and socioeconomically, survey research have shown that more recently immigrant groups, such as Southeast Asians, have been unable to replicate such success.
Census inthe overall U. Census showed that Generally speaking, Southeast Asian American students are overlooked due to the overwhelming success of their East and South Asian American peers. As cited in a case study,  many of the deficits of Southeast Asian American students' academic achievement can be attributed to many structural barriers of living in an immigrant household.
Many Southeast Asian American students are children of refugees from countries at war. However, not all is grim for Southeast Asian American students. Certain Southeast Asian ethnic groups have shown greater progress compared to others and resemble the success of other more established Asian Americans.
Among Southeast Asian American students, Vietnamese American students are recognized as having the highest academic performance, whereas Cambodian American students have the poorest performance.
Estimates indicate that a disproportionate percentage of Taiwanese students attend elite universities despite constituting less than 0. Taiwanese Americans have the highest education attainment level in the United States, surpassing any other ethnic group in the country, according to U.
S Census Bureau data released in According to the Labor Statistics from U. Model Minorities are used as a tool to discriminate against Black people with the mantra "If they can do it, why cant you? This argument is often viewed as logical, because at the surface, there doesn't seem to be a clear cut explanation for why Jews, Asians, and Irish people are able to thrive after experiencing racism, but Blacks still seem to be disenfranchised.
Some scholars also explain the differing successes of Asian immigrants and Blacks on the specific types of racism they experience. Essentially racism in itself is not monolithic, and is perpetrated in different ways and different arenas of life, some arenas where anti-Black rhetoric exist prove to be more harmful to Black personhood than situations in which anti-Asian discrimination exists.
Inthe writer Philip K. Chiu identified the prevalence of the model minority stereotype in American media reports on Chinese Americans, and noted the contrast between that stereotype and what he observed as the reality of the Chinese American population, which was much more varied than the model minority stereotype in the media typically presented.
