Episode 3:Asian Studies:An Examination of How the Model Minority Myth Has Contributed to the Virus of Hate Afflicting Asians in America
Play • 1 hr 8 min

In this episode of the Demystifying Diversity Podcast, Daralyse Lyons looks at the ways in which the model minority myth has contributed to the ongoing oppression of Asians in the United States. During the outbreak of Covid-19, anti-Asian bias has been increasing in intensity and severity, yet there is a long and painful history of othering that Asians in America have endured. Daralyse explores the physical and emotional violence that is plaguing Asian Americans in the United States and how these hate crimes have been fueled by national and local leadership.

As we move forward, it is essential to become aware of the model minority trap, and to educate ourselves and others about the danger of stereotyping. We must examine the ways in which all racism is interconnected and how White supremacy is integrally embedded in our system.
