Dismantling the Model Minority Myth and Fostering Safer Communities, One Conversation at a Time

For this episode of Community Signal, we're joined by community professionals Jenn Hudnet, Lana Lee, and Phoebe Venkat. They candidly share stories about the impact of racism and stereotypes against Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders in their own lives, in the workplace, and in the communities they manage. Jenn, Lana, and Phoebe each had stories to share about their families, the circumstances that brought them to the United States, the racism and discrimination they faced, and the shared generational trauma they're working through together. “We have to look forward. We've got to acknowledge some of the wrongs that happened to our parents, relatives, and friends in the past. It's very difficult to do. We're doing it, but it definitely takes a community of community to get that done,” shared Phoebe (7:47). There's also a discussion around the work that companies and colleagues must do to maintain safe workplaces and communities. “Your intention might not always be to hurt or harm someone or to make fun of someone, but the impact is still there. Being able to understand the impact that our words and actions have on others is important [as well as] being able to acknowledge the impact that it might have on somebody. I think microaggressions are something that I've even had to learn to recognize because I've just internalized them and accepted them over the years of being here,” said Jenn (21:12). And there's an important reminder in this episode to see your colleagues and community members as individuals. Individuals that might have a bad day, that might make mistakes, or that might be comforted just by your presence. “Sometimes we hear stories of people. [Maybe] they posted a really good picture one day and then the next day they're feeling down. … As a community manager, [it's really important to] take time to read and understand where people are coming from,” explains Lana (49:46). We're thankful to Jenn, Lana, and Phoebe for sharing with us. May this conversation lead to safer communities, neighborhoods, workplaces, and personal boundaries. Lana, Jenn, Patrick, and Phoebe also discuss: The model minority myth and the harm it causes Recognizing emotional labor and setting boundaries There are no growth hacks when it comes to helping your community members feel safe Our Podcast is Made Possible By… If you enjoy our show, please know that it's only possible with the generous support of our sponsor: Vanilla, a one-stop shop for online community. Big Quotes Moving forward through generational trauma (8:03): “It's interesting for us as the children because it's very painful to come to terms with [the trauma that] our parents have experienced and even to help them understand. There's so much that they've just accepted as part of life, racism, and pain that they just endure because they are so strong based on the past that they've endured. Part of that is also embracing that pain and helping them to embrace it and moving forward with them.” –@jenntothechen The ripple effects of the model minority myth (12:51): “If we're treated better because we're Asians or Pacific Islanders, we're seen as the ‘teacher's pet.' Of course, it does definitely have advantages, but do you want advantages that come at the expense of other people's suffering?” -@pheebkat Your presence can mean a lot to someone going through difficult times (14:26): “It's important for people to know that [you're there for them], even though they may not need you at the time. You give someone a gift of presence, just being around them, knowing that someone's there to support them.” –@lanalyzer314 Breaking the model minority myth (18:06): “With the model minority myth, a lot of us have just been taught to embrace that culture of silence, of not rocking the boat or causing any conflict. I think one thing that I've come to terms with is that it is okay to speak up. Obviously, to do it in a respectful way, to be mindful of a different perspective, but to not be afraid to speak up when you notice something that bothers you, when you notice underrepresentation of a certain culture, and to embrace that. Being able to do that actually really empowers you as a person and also builds community as you bring more light to different issues that people might not be considering.” –@jenntothechen Think of the impact of your actions, not just your intentions (21:13): “Your intention might not always be to hurt or harm someone or to make fun of someone, but the impact is still there. Being able to understand the impact that our words and actions have on others is important [as well as] being able to acknowledge the impact that it might have on somebody.” –@jenntothechen Recognizing the emotion labor that we carry (28:18): “The [definition of emotional labor that] I've adopted is the labor [that's] not on your job description. You get hired to be a community manager or accountant or whatever you are, and then you end up taking care of the community around you, your colleagues, making sure they're okay, [and] volunteering at affinity group events.” –@pheebkat Prioritizing ourselves matters just as much as prioritizing our communities (32:16): “I struggle with where I want to take on more and do more and constantly think about what my community members need, but I know that if I don't take care of myself first, I'm not going to be able to do that.” –@lanalyzer314 To build a safe community, start small (44:58): “When you're building online communities, sometimes it's harder to get to the heart of others. You're building a community at scale, you're trying to make sure that things can work for many, but in terms of making sure people feel safe – feel heard – some of that work does need to be one-to-one or with a small group.” –@pheebkat   About Our Guests Jenn Hudnet is a community manager at Salesforce.

It's important to break down this myth, because we live in a world of identity politics where we fight over who gets to speak for whom and how we represent ourselves within institutions. Who is the model minority, and how did this term come to be? What social pressures defy or reproduce stereotypes? And what problems does this myth create for other people of color?

Welcome back everyone! This is the second episode to the Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month series. Today we'll be focusing on the model minority myth and its unfortunate effects. The model minority is a myth that views APIs in a "do-gooder" monolith, ultimately erasing diversity and struggles in API communities. It may be viewed as compliment to others, but is ultimately a problem to all. In this episode, we'll be focusing on what it is and the communities it harms. Resources from this episode: BLACKBURN, S.

Continuing with this focus on our Asian stories during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month this May, we want to dismantle one of the most harmful stereotypes of Asian Americans:  that of the “model minority.”  But what is it, exactly? It’s many things - we’ve got tons of examples.  But fundamentally, it’s the thing that has us believe that all Asians are subservient, meek, and inherently successful - and ignores the complicated history of Asian immigration, the fact that Asians aren’t a monolith, and why this label hurts all of us. But, other people might argue - as stereotypes go, it seems like a great thing to be called, right?  We disagree.  And today, we’re going to talk about why we stand against this idea of Asian people being thought of as a model minority.  Have questions, comments, or concerns?  Email us at hello@dearwhitewomen.com What to listen for:  What is the model minority myth, and where did it originate? The immigration policies that limited and shaped the influx of people of Asian descent into the United States until the mid-1900s. The tremendous disparities between the incomes and “success” of Indians in America compared to say Burmese in America - and yet we are all lumped together as “Asian” Why we firmly stand against the idea of the model minority   Like what you hear?  Don’t miss another episode and subscribe!

A reckoning of anti-Asian racism and violence has been ongoing in the wake of the shooting in Atlanta that left eight people dead, along with the thousands of reports of anti-Asian incidents during the pandemic. With both Canada and the U.S. have torrid histories of racism, how have long-running stereotypes and the ‘model minority myth’ of Asian Canadians and Americans turned into violence? Three Asian-Canadian journalists talk about the myth playing out in their lives, how it’s wielded as a weapon of anti-Asian and anti-Black hate and what unlearning it means.

The "Model Minority Myth", a phrase I learned from Ijeoma Oluo, is a tool the supremacy uses to keep BIPOC folx hating on one another. Our achievements are weaponized against one another and this becomes yet another one of the burdens we carry. We must break free from this toxic pattern and break out of this myth.The reason I'm talking about this today is because as a leader, it's imperative for you to know about the workings of the model minority myth so that you and your organization aren't operating from this deeply ingrained erroneous belief meant as a weapon to keep people down.

With the recent violent attacks towards the AAPI Community most notably the tragedy in Atlanta where 8 were killed fueled by racism, and sexism, there seems to be a disconnect for some that this was in fact a hate crime- and that’s because folks don’t know their history. So in preparation for the next two weeks of guests and conversations we thought it'd be good to go back into the archives to resurface two past Korners from over 200 episodes ago! First up James continues he discussion on immigration this time focusing on the history of overseas from Asia, exploring the Chinese Exclusion act of 1882, and how it spawned more racists laws to uphold white supremacy, and where the myth of the Model Minority comes from. Then in honor of Women’s History it’s Nnekay’s Korner on Cheng I Sao, the bad ass Chinese Pirate who in the 1800s lead a fleet larger than the Chinese Navy and was one of the most successful pirates ever to exist.REFERENCE LINKS: http://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2017/04/19/524571669/model-minority-myth-again-used-as-a-racial-wedge-between-asians-and-blackshttp://americanhistory.oxfordre.com/view/10.1093/acrefore/9780199329175.001.0001/acrefore-9780199329175-e-72#acrefore-9780199329175-e-72-note-5https://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/616/i-am-not-a-pirate?act=2How to Help Asian American Community: Donations, Resources, Education, and More:https://www.playbill.com/article/stop-aapi-hate-a-resource-guide-to-support-the-asian-american-communityhttps://www.marieclaire.com/politics/a35866266/how-to-support-asian-american-community-organizations/https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-help-the-asian-american-community-donations-educational-resources-and-more/Minority Korner on YouTube:  https://bit.ly/2JsXEuuCONTACT USTwitter: @minoritykornerEmail: minoritykorner@gmail.comIG: @minoritykornerJames Arthur M (he/him): TW: @JamesArthur_M, IG: @JamesArthurM Nnekay FitzClarke (she/her):TW: @mizzfitzie, IG: @nnekay

What is the model minority myth, and why is it problematic? Where did this stereotype come from and why is it so harmful for Asian Americans today, especially when it comes to mental health and access to resources? - In this episode of Love Intently, we create space to answer these questions and dissect how white supremacy and colorism impacts Asian Americans.
