The Color of Success: Asian Americans and the Origins of the Model Minority (Politics and Society in Modern America)

The Color of Success: Asian Americans and the Origins of the Model Minority (Politics and Society in Modern America)

The Color of Success tells of the astonishing transformation of Asians in the United States from the "yellow peril" to "model minorities"--peoples distinct from the white majority but lauded as well-assimilated, upwardly mobile, and exemplars of traditional family values--in the middle decades of the twentieth century. As Ellen Wu shows, liberals argued for the acceptance of these immigrant communities into the national fold, charging that the failure of America to live in accordance with its democratic ideals endangered the country's aspirations to world leadership. Weaving together myriad perspectives, Wu provides an unprecedented view of racial reform and the contradictions of national belonging in the civil rights era. She highlights the contests for power and authority within Japanese and Chinese America alongside the designs of those external to these populations, including government officials, social scientists, journalists, and others. And she demonstrates that the invention of the model minority took place in multiple arenas, such as battles over zoot suiters leaving wartime internment camps, the juvenile delinquency panic of the 1950s, Hawaii statehood, and the African American freedom movement. Together, these illuminate the impact of foreign relations on the domestic...

Unraveling the ''Model Minority'' Stereotype: Listening to Asian American Youth, Second Edition

Unraveling the ''Model Minority'' Stereotype: Listening to Asian American Youth, Second Edition

The second edition of Unraveling the ''Model Minority'' Stereotype: Listening to Asian American Youth extends Stacey Lee's groundbreaking research on the educational experiences and achievement of Asian American youth. Lee provides a comprehensive update of social science research to reveal the ways in which the larger structures of race and class play out in the lives of Asian American high school students, especially regarding presumptions that the educational experiences of Koreans, Chinese, and Hmong youth are all largely the same. In her detailed and probing ethnography, Lee presents the experiences of these students in their own words, providing an authentic insider perspective on identity and inter ethnic relations in an often misunderstood American community. This second edition is essential reading for anyone interested in Asian American youth and their experiences in U.S. schools.''Stacey Lee is one of the most powerful and influential scholarly voices to challenge the 'model minority' stereotype. Here in its second edition, Lee's book offers an additional paradigm to explain the barriers to educating young Asian Americans in the 21st century -- xenoracism (i.e., racial discrimination against immigrant minorities) intersecting with issues of social class.'' -- Xue Lan R...

The Good Immigrants: How the Yellow Peril Became the Model Minority (Politics and Society in Modern America)

The Good Immigrants: How the Yellow Peril Became the Model Minority (Politics and Society in Modern America)

Conventionally, US immigration history has been understood through the lens of restriction and those who have been barred from getting in. In contrast, The Good Immigrants considers immigration from the perspective of Chinese elites―intellectuals, businessmen, and students―who gained entrance because of immigration exemptions. Exploring a century of Chinese migrations, Madeline Hsu looks at how the model minority characteristics of many Asian Americans resulted from US policies that screened for those with the highest credentials in the most employable fields, enhancing American economic competitiveness.The earliest US immigration restrictions targeted Chinese people but exempted students as well as individuals who might extend America's influence in China. Western-educated Chinese such as Madame Chiang Kai-shek became symbols of the US impact on China, even as they patriotically advocated for China's modernization. World War II and the rise of communism transformed Chinese students abroad into refugees, and the Cold War magnified the importance of their talent and training. As a result, Congress legislated piecemeal legal measures to enable Chinese of good standing with professional skills to become citizens. Pressures mounted to reform American discriminatory immigration la...

Myth of the Model Minority: Asian Americans Facing Racism, Second Edition

Myth of the Model Minority: Asian Americans Facing Racism, Second Edition

The second edition of this popular book adds important new research on how racial stereotyping is gendered and sexualized. New interviews show that Asian American men feel emasculated in America’s male hierarchy. Women recount their experiences of being exoticized, subtly and otherwise, as sexual objects. The new data reveal how race, gender, and sexuality intersect in the lives of Asian Americans. The text retains all the features of the renowned first edition, which offered the first in-depth exploration of how Asian Americans experience and cope with everyday racism. The book depicts the “double consciousness” of many Asian Americans―experiencing racism but feeling the pressures to conform to popular images of their group as America’s highly achieving “model minority.”  FEATURES OF THE SECOND EDITION

Myth of the Model Minority: Asian Americans Facing Racism, Second Edition

Myth of the Model Minority: Asian Americans Facing Racism, Second Edition

With their apparent success in schools and careers, Asian Americans have long been viewed by white Americans as the "model minority." Yet few Americans realize the lives of many Asian Americans are constantly stressed by racism. This reality becomes clear from the voices of Asian Americans heard in this first in-depth book on the experiences of racism among Asian Americans from many different nations and social classes. Chou and Feagin assess racial stereotyping and discrimination from dozens of interviews across the country with Asian Americans in a variety of settings, from elementary schools to colleges, workplaces, and other public arenas. They explore the widely varied ways of daily coping that Asian Americans employ-some choosing to conform and others actively resisting. This book dispels notions that Asian Americans are universally "favored" by whites and have an easy time adapting to life in American society. The authors conclude with policy measures that can improve the lives not only of Asian Americans but also of other Americans of color.

The Model Minority Stereotype Reader: Critical and Challenging Readings for the 21st Century

This collection focuses on Asian Americans as a frequently overlooked ethno-racial and ethno-cultural group, examining how stereotypes about Asian Americans are harmful both to students and their teachers. The material helps students gain a deeper understanding of the model-minority stereotype and its implications. The first three sections address academic achievement; myths surrounding Asian-American parenting; and sexualization, athleticism, and racialization. The fourth section, devoted to counter-narratives, discusses neocolonialist attitudes, unrealistic expectations, and the idea of the perpetual foreigner. Questions following each chapter can be tailored to undergraduate and graduate audiences for classroom discussion or as written assignments.
