Dr. Chang, thanks for this historical overview. I gathered that Asian Americans have been treated as "the other" that is incapable of assimilating into the so called "melting pot? What is the ultimate benefit (based on those who exercise these racist ideas) of imposing these stereotypes on Asian Americans?

Two questions: 1) How do we deal with historical and contemporary distrust and biases that exist both within and across different AAPI communities? and 2) How do AAPI individuals from different generations (e.g, Maturists, Baby Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, Gen Z) feel about the issues being discussed today based upon their experiences?

What role may be played by public school education in correcting for this misinformation about the true history of AAPI communities in US history?
Kornel Chang
Hi all, a very good overview of the history of anti-Asian sentiment and exclusion in the United States.

Dr. Maria dC Rodriguez
Although it is true that all people of color in the US have been discriminated & there is certainly much work to be done to correct for this social problem, the most brutal treatment has been endured by Native indigenous cultures. If there is an invisible group in the US, Native indigenous communities suffer the greatest level of oppression & discrimination.
