ABSTRACT
Opinion. A picture of the effects of stereotyping of minorities by one who feels this is harmful and the media needs to change its practice of being part of such stereotyping. The type-casting of Chinese Americans as a model minority, and how this picture changed with reports of Chinese gangs and criminal activities. A plea for media and others to report on people the way they are--human, no more, no less.
