'Model Minority' Myth Again Used As A Racial Wedge Between Asians And Blacks

There are 184 comments on the New Hampshire Public Radio - story from Apr 19, 2017, titled 'Model Minority' Myth Again Used As A Racial Wedge Between Asians And Blacks. In it, New Hampshire Public Radio - reports that:

The perception of universal success among Asian Americans is being wielded to downplay racism's role in the persistent struggles of other minority groups - especially black Americans. A piece from New York Magazine 's Andrew Sullivan over the weekend ended with an old, well-worn trope: Asian Americans, with their "solid two-parent family structures," are a shining example of how to overcome discrimination.

Racism is entrenched in society. Those apologetics who conciously or unconciously excuse racism or refuse to acknowledge that there's a problem here should face up to reality that individuals within communities who identify as Black, or a disadvantaged ethnic or racial minority youth or non-white, will have a different experiences to say an Asian person who grew up in a low to middle class household and is non-black.

The model minority myth just perpetuates notions of Asian stereotypes, when in reality, Asian people are so diverse. It only gives the impression of Asian people based on the successes and honorary status given to people of East Asian descent, while not acknowledging that there are groups within the Asian community that are struggling, which might be due to racism in a similar veined faced by Blacks.

Now if you look at other racial groups like Latin Americans, they're doing perfectly fine, despite coming from a lower-class background.

This highlights disparities and attempts to deny that there is a problem and because of personal biases.

Your above points, you are right on the mark. But, this is why non-Hispanic Whites created the Model Minority classification.---------

1. Non-Hispanic Whites created the Model Minority classification for Asians, as a racial social construct weapon. AGAINST African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

2. Non-Hispanic Whites created the Model Minority classification for black African immigrants, as a racial social construct weapon. AGAINST African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

Okay. You being an African American (Descendant of a black American slave) guy, no surprise that you prefer Asian women. OVER African American (Descendants of black American slaves) women.

African American dudes prefer non-black women. Even if these non-black women would be very fat, ugly, nasty, uneducated, & with low self esteem. If an African American guy can get himself a non-black woman who is very fat, ugly, nasty, uneducated, & with low self esteem.--------- He considers that to be a step up for himself.

African American dudes think this way because they are so very badly mentally damaged & mentally broken.

Non-Hispanic Whites are the numerically dominant majority in the United States (by far). The United States is the greatest nation in the world. By a very, very long stretch.

If one cannot succeed in the United States, it is their own fault.

You're merely another moron. You didn't say on what factual bases you made that claim, and you can't with any data. You're just another xenophobic exceptionalist.

The US is far from the "greatest nation in the world" as measured by infant mortality, growth in the average height of the population over time (a proxy for overall health), various work related quality of life measures, freedom from societal violence, educational attainment as measured by testing if not by higher education degrees granted, and so on. It does not even have a democracy in strict definitional terms or in practice, nor what is commonly understood as free and fair elections.

Naturally though, endemic ignorance is the perfect bulwark against facts or data or reason.

St Rick Saintpornum.---------

You said "infant mortality".---------

How is the federal government responsible for the infant mortality rates?

You said "various work related quality of life measures".---------

What do you mean by "various work related quality of life measures"? Explain.

You said "freedom from societal violence".---------

The violence in the United States from 1965 till now, blame it on the Democrats "welfare & entitlement society (Great Society), which was implemented under then Democrat President Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ).

From 1965 till late 1994, absolutely nothing was done about the welfare & entitlements abuses. It was only when the Republicans won back the House of Representatives & Senate in the November, 1994 election, that finally traction was made to reform welfare & entitlements abuses in 1996.

Well, foreign born immigrants of color come to the United States. Within just a few years after being in this nation, foreign born immigrants of color pass up most African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

If we had health care like all the other industrialized democracies then you could have gotten more help for your developmental problems. That's "how."

I read you post and knew just how stupid you would be.

The US certainly does lead the world in military spending, military invasions, military bases, and coups, however. So a point for you.

Where, in any of my previous posts on this thread, or on any of the other threads on Topix Asian-American forum did I type up that the United States does not lead in military spending, military invasions, military bases, & coups? Nowhere.

Why has this nation taken military actions in foreign nations? Why does the United States have many military bases in foreign nations? Why has this nation carried out coups in foreign nations? It is because of this here.---------

1. This nation has many Allies in foreign nations, who must be supported.

2. The United States has many enemies in foreign nations, who must be dealt with.

3. This nation has many banking & business interests in foreign nations, which must be protected.

That's going to be an arduous task given your chromosomal problems.

Why don't you back up your gasbag claim about the US being far and away the greatest country on the planet with some actual data first, moron?

Used as a wedge between Asians and Blacks?!? No wedge is needed to split these two groups. Witness how Asian businesses are targeted by angry Black militants when they riot... I mean "protest". Asia is about as anti-Black racist as it can possibly be. The two groups mix like oil and water. Asians tend to work hard, take advantage of every economic opportunity and believe in self reliance. Black America (at least the "Black America we see on CNN and MSNBC) believes in nothing but blaming the rest of the world for it's own failures. These two groups have issues with each other for good reason. No wedge issue is needed. It's built in from the get go.

Your above points.--------- You are right on the mark. But, what Kat Chow wrote in her article about how the "'Model Minority' is used as a racial wedge between Asians and Blacks".--------- She was correct.

Non-Hispanic Whites created the social construct of the "Model Minority" for Asians & for black African immigrants. Non-Hispanic Whites created the Model Minority for Asians & for black African immigrants as racial buffer weapons. AGAINST African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves). In my next 3 posts, I will point out examples of how these social constructs works.

INFIDEL.---------

How the social constructs of the Model Minority & the Honorary White Status' works.---------

Asians are one of the United States preferred minorities. Asians are way preferred. OVER African Americans (Descendants of black American slaves).

Asians have been known as being (still are) this nations Model Minority.

Asians have had (still do) Honorary White Status in the United States.

In my next post, I will point out several of the main racial dynamics for the Hispanics.
