Publisher New York Times Opinion
Author Anne Anlin Cheng
Summary The author claims that Asian-Americans have long been used by mainstream white culture to shame and drive a wedge against other minority groups.


America, as a nation, have been more focused on quantifying injury and shoring up identity categories than doing the harder work of confronting the enduring, ineffable, and at times contradictory and messier wounds of American racism.

Excerpt Too often, attention to nonwhite groups is only as pressing as the injuries that they have suffered.
