In 1966 the New York Times wrote an article that first referred to Chinese-Americans as the Model Minority. It explained that during a time when billions were being proposed to uplift the Negro, Chinese-American immigrants were building successful lives all by themselves. With no help.
This was the beginning of labeling Asian Americans as the Model Minority. In the episode, we talk with Madalyn Metzger about the Model Minority Myth and its effects.
