Essay: Beyond Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, There Are Still More Stories to Tell - NBC News

my Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) essay for NBC Asian America
"Despite model minority myth stereotypes, the AAPI community is wonderfully diverse with differences of ethnicity, language, class, education, income, geography, employment, religion, health insurance, chopsticks or spoons, although we often have to fight to disaggregate the data to see it. At the same time, there is a lot of generic negative rhetoric against immigrants, refugees, Muslims, people of color, and the undocumented that does not even try to differentiate one from another. So this year, it is even more important than ever to tell our stories, to look to see who is missing, and to stand up for all our communities."
