Inspired by the hashtag #Thisis2016 that was created in response to New York Times editor Michael Luo’s open letter to someone who told him to “go back to China” and Bowdoin Asian Students Association’s photo campaign, this is UPenn Asian Pacific Student Coalition’s take on common Asian Pacific Islander/American microaggressions. API/As at Penn were asked to share moments of racial insensitivity and ignorance that they have experienced and highlight the continued need for discussion. We recognize that many statements are not intended to be rude or disrespectful, yet these incidents highlight the continued need to break down stereotypes commonly held. Please feel free to start a dialogue, but keep in mind that these are only brief looks into the full stories that people have experienced. This is part 1 of the #NotYourModelMinority photo campaign.
