He is the author of Going Public: Critical Race Theory and Issues of Social Justice (Tate Publishing, 2010), The Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Asian American Success (Information Age Publishing, 2013), and The Model Minority Stereotype Reader: Critical and Challenging Readings for the 21st Century (Cognella Academic Publishing, 2013). His most recent publication, “The Model Minority? Stereotypes of Asian American Students May Hurt More Than They Help” appears in Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. One critical component to the task of demystifying the Asian American model minority stereotype is to improve the dissemination of scholarly work on this insidious myth. The mission of The Model Minority Stereotype Project (MMSP) is focused on this aspect of access.
