To the Editor:
Re “Diversity Makes You Brighter,” by Sheen S. Levine (Op-Ed, Dec. 9):
Glaringly absent from an otherwise excellent study are Asian-Americans. Even after a couple of centuries of being here, Asian-Americans are too often missing from the dialogue on diversity in the United States.
Perhaps it’s because we are considered the “model minority” that seemingly is not disadvantaged, or perhaps it’s because we are still viewed as perpetual foreigners. And it doesn’t help that even in this study, the only Asians mentioned are those in foreign countries.
