Because the “hush” nature of Asian culture and because of the need to continue the perception of being seen as the “model minority,” often the racism encountered by Asians are not as publicized and known as those that occur for African Americans and Hispanics.
My white friend once told me he didn’t think Asians experienced any racism in America. A new hate crime database for Asians was recently launched, hopefully this will shed more light on the silent problem.
In this new era, not only are Muslim and Mexicans receiving negative backlash but also Asians. See this link for a recent story about how hate crime vandalized affected an Asian family: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/asian-family-garage-vandalized_us_58a47827e4b03df370dc4de2
