Whatever else APAs decide about affirmative action, we should not allow ourselves to be used to attack other people of color. Pitting racial minority groups against one another represents the worst form of divide-and-conquer political strategy. APAs must refuse to believe that they are superior to Whites, non-Whites, or anyone else. This is not to denigrate the accomplishments of APAs or our hard work. But APAs must refuse to buy into derogatory stereotypes that other people of color have no achievements or shirk hard work. History teaches us that not long ago, the exact same criticisms were leveled at us, that we were the stupid, the unassimilable, the depraved, the criminal. And our own experiences, whether they be of racial epithets, glass ceilings, or hate crimes, reveal the continuing existence of racial prejudice.
