Rice should be a place where the “model minority” myth is broken

(03/23/21 1:08am)

To preface, we want to be clear that every single BIPOC student that matriculates into Rice should be entitled to resources for a fair opportunity to succeed in higher education, especially at an elite university like Rice. Racism and racial inequity impact our ability to take full advantage of our opportunity and education. Every minority group has different histories, traumas, cultural factors and needs in order to be successful. Asian and Pacific Islander students are not here to ask for any resources that Black, Indigenous, Latinx or other minority groups may have, but to address the fact that there are no conversations around the fact that API students don't have resources specifically tailored to us and our experiences. The Rice administration, and Rice culture in general, has failed to recognize Asian Americans as people of color who experience racism. This needs to change.
