posted by .

Consider the following statements: (a) Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders are a model minority, & (b) Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders belong to a single ¿Asian American¿ culture. If someone said one of these statements to you, how would you explain that the statements are misconceptions? Include whether you think most Americans believe these misconceptions, & explain why or why not

    Arrgghhh! Both of these statements are so ridiculous, it's impossible to think that anyone would believe them. Asia and the Pacific islands extend from Turkey to Indonesia with Israel, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Kazkhstan, Russia, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, India, Sri Lanka, China, Mongolia, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand -- and many others in between. In these countries are hundreds of different ethnic groups.

    There is no right answer because the question is ridiculous. I agree with Ms. Sue.

    It's a bad question -- you should tell your instructor and tell him/her why.
