Racism in Popular Culture There is a lack of familial relationship among AAPI regulars. When featured in relationships, APIs tend to be in romantic rather than familial relationships. The relationships tend to be fleeting and rarely develop into long-term family arrangements. There is only one married couple in ABC’s lost. Thus, most AAPIs were excluded from long term domestic partnerships, so they are still not considered to constitute an American family. Also the majority of AAPI-identified characters on TV had high status occupations such as doctors and businessman or had high education. The absence of AAPI characters in any other occupations contribute to generalizations about all AAPIs. The model minority stereotype generalizes attributes of some members of the group and assume they are true for all. AAPIs are underrepresented numerically and missing from lead roles. In 2004, there were only 5% AAPIs in the US. Their characters in television are underrepresented at less than half of their actual US population.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
