Little Asia on a Hill January 7, 2007

Here is an interesting New York Times article on the impact of development of Asian American presence on campuses, issues affirmative action, and the role of the public university in representing local communities. In the last few paragraphs about Jon Lee’s journey touched me as a young Asian American man who sought out to another community of color to change and impact…this gives us a glimpse of the challenges and celebrations of the Asian American community…how much is it too insular and how much is it an opportunity by “entering out.”

This article is appalling…

This article does not reflect on the reality of low income apa youth around the country. It reinforces the model minority stereotype which is inaccurate.
