ain't your model minority

I love this piece: Nobody's Model Minority. Shiwani Srivastava has a really smart, WTF response to this extremely misguided commentary in Forbes broadly painting Indian Americans as "the new model minority," invoking Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and recent spelling bee winners. Uh, did this guy not get the memo?

Squeezing an entire community into the "model minority" mold is not cool, as complimentary as you might think your intentions are. The guy suddenly starts seeing a bunch of Indians in the media and realizes they might just on to something. Sorry Mr. Richwine, but you have no idea what the hell you're talking about.
