It is a well known story that Asian Americans have an image of being studious and intelligent. Asian Americans are seen as the model minority because they have a higher income average than other minority groups and their conservative family ideals align with that of white households. However, the author of this article alleges that being studious and holding education to a higher standard is not what elevated Asian Americans as a group. A man named Nathaniel Higler, a Brown University economist, says it is simply due to the fact that society has become less racist towards Asians. Asian immigrants who were the first to immigrate to the US received much resentment and gradually post-WWII it was found that the denial of opportunities were more damaging than having no education.
