In class we have discussed several minorities, but I think we often focus on our own groups. The article about the pageant idea seems a little silly, but the message behind it is one I think is worth noting. Since Asian Americans are usually stereotyped as being smart, they are seen as successful. As a result, they don’t receive attention to their issues as much as other minorities.  Many Asian Americans from countries other than China or Japan migrate and struggle just like all other minority groups. Why is it that we don’t give their issues as much attention?
