Vox threatened by Asian-American success
June 19, 2021
In an Instagram “comic”, Vox claims the success of some Asian Americans contributes to a racial divide that “threatens our solidarity”.
Vox’s data inexplicably excludes Chinese and Korean Americans, which make up a combined 31% of the Asian population in the United States.
At the same time, Vox generalizes Asian Americans, despite the fact they can hail from 48 countries with different cultures.
Rather than acknowledge that not everyone will be a top income earner, Vox self-owns with a graphic that is likely racist.
