The Celebration of Asian Americans has Obscured Reality Ronald Takaki vocalizes in his article that The Harmful Myth of Asian Superiorityis not to assume that all Asian Americans are indeed successful so its incorrect to generalize any particular race as superior over another I believe this is true in the US today Asians in public schools are made to be great students This mentality fails when we realize that not all students are the same Takakis persona is outraged at our own politicians using these broad assumptions to propagate why one race seems to succeed with little or no government assistance and others who cannot Then to compare the success of Asians to the African American and saying If Asian Americans can make it why cant African Americans Statements such as these add fuel to a roaring fire of resentment towards Asian Americans Asians have been touted as successful entrepreneurs but comparing family incomes is even more deceptive Some Asian American groups do have higher family incomes than Caucasians But they have more workers per familyThis model minority image is homogenized and hides their many differences as stated by Takaki For example while thousand of Asian students are in universities others are on the streets living in motels or in gangs A great percentage of Asians from New York Citys Chinatown live at or below poverty level Takakis purpose was to bring awareness to the reader as to the harmful labels we imply on Asian Americans Not all Asians are successful here in the US because in their country certain licensing is not needed to be a professional When these people come to the US with poor English are then limited to the jobs they can do Therefore are limited to menial dishwasher caretaker positions This is not fair I feel our country is arrogant when migrants come to the US Japanese individuals earn good incomes that are comparable to that of Caucasians
