Summary This video presents a history of how the “Model Minority” designation of Asian Americans was created as a tactic by the US to combat the racist reputation it was gaining worldwide.  Unfortunately,  this seemingly harmless designation has resulted in negative effects on other minority groups, civil rights, and the treatment of Asian-Americans as a monolith.

Other Notes An engaging and relatable way to learn about the Model Minority Stereotype, from the harm it does to the history behind it.  Good for middle school children as it is comprehensive and entertaining.
