Racial Profiling of Asians in America
“Have you heard the one where someone broke into this guy’s house and all his electronics were
stolen but they knew that the burglar was Asian because the math homework that was left on the
kitchen table was completed?  What about the one how Asians get their names?  By dropping a fork

communities continues to thrive.  Unfortunately, many Asian Americans are still being treated unjustly.
