Claire Jean Kim – Racial Triangulation

From Sevly Snguon’s post: My Asian-American Awakening: Realizing that I am a Person of Color


Community Village‘s insight:


In this diagram do you think the placement of each group is accuratly depicted?


Where would Native Americans and Xican@s/Latin@s be depicted?


Add the categories – physical superiority, mental superiority, family unity superiority and watch the graph change.


Although this diagram is an oversimplification, it’s useful to make useful points about stereotyping and discrimination. Combine this diagram with incarceration stastics and Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow and the dots connect and makes sense. This is a depiction of American’s distorted perception of our cultures.
