I can’t believe it — is this really true? In this article, it states that 49 percent of Asian Americans have college degrees compared to Americans — 29 percent. And sure, there are much less illegal immigrants among Asian Americans (10-15% compared to Hispanics at 45%). “They” value marriage, being a good parent, career and success. They even make more than the average population on average – $66K vs $49.8K. It is reasonable to see that people will stereotype Asians as being the smart, geeky people.
However, it is important to remember about Asians being considered the “Model Minority“. Asians still need love and care, assistance, fair treatment gaining admission into colleges, culturally appropriate health care and representation in the government and policy making.
