Anti-Asian Racism

Myths, Stereotypes, and Catholic Social Teachings
  • By Joseph Cheah
Product Description
An analysis of anti-Asian racism, told from a Catholic perspective. Includes relevant CST documents and current examples of anti-Asian racism, which the author helpfully compares and contrasts with anti-Black racism. The heart of the book is structured around chapters on three major anti-Asian stereotypes: the perpetual foreigner, the Yellow Peril, and the myth of the model minority. These three damaging stereotypes will be examined from the perspectives of history, Asian American Studies, Asian American marginal theology, biblical studies, and CST. Supplements the discussion of race/racism in both Open Wide Our Hearts and Encountering Christ in Harmony by offering a timely response to an issue of racial injustice in Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. It focuses on the central issue that the bishops' documents do not address; namely, reckoning with the invisibility of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the Catholic Church.
