We need to keep telling these stories so new and younger generations of Asian Americans know what it was like not too long ago. They need to know that although it has generally changed for the better (for many Asian Americans) it can very easily change for the worse.
They need to be taught that the special privileges of the model minority come at the cost to other minorities. They need to understand that the “achievement” of model minority status wasn’t because of that minority’s hard work and contributions. It was because dividing the non-whites preserves the power of anti-minority supremacy.
