There is a common myth that Asian Amercians are the model minority, in part, because of the false perception that they do not “complain” or are adversely affected by racial prejudice in the U.S. As you learned from your text, Asian Americans face discrimination, are stereotyped, and experience hardship achieving the “American Dream” similar to other racial minorities. Review the attached videos and use one or more of the questions listed below as a guide and basis for discussion with your classmates.
Guidelines are to complete each post before the due date with a minimum of between 75 – 100 words. Include in your posts some concepts and vocabulary from the assigned video, textbook, and/or lecture slides to demonstrate your understanding of the lesson for the module.
