Hey, while the most common Asian stereotype we hear about Asians is “Asians are smart!,” there are broader and more worrisome Asian stereotypes.
My best friends in college were mostly Asian. Troubling to me was the fact that when two or more of then joined me in a class, the teachers seemed unable to tell them apart despite the fact that none of them look alike apart from having shiny, straight black hair (one was short, one was tall, one was curvy, the other was thin, one had short hair, the other had long hair, one had freckles, the other did not). But then, I usually look nothing like someone’s Hispanic maid and that hasn’t stopped anyone from calling me the maid’s name. Hmm.
