Can we stop invalidating benevolent racism, y'all?
This is still racism. Let an Average Joe be an Asian and people will ignorantly assume that he's not average, but plain stupid because he's Asian and average.
Anything amazing he does will be severely downplayed because he's Asian. Maybe these stereotypes aren't as blatantly harmful as other more antagonizing beliefs, but the fact of the matter is this thinking is still a part of a system that oppresses people of color- even Asian people.
Asian women are stereotyped to be docile and subservient little creatures with sideways vaginas and as "appealing" as that is supposed to sound, there are blogs like CreepyWhiteGuys
compiling the bullsh*t Asian women receive just for being themselves. These "compliments" they receive are still harmful as hell because in the end, it is racism.
Let's not try to place racism on a hierarchy. We're living under the harmful entity that is racism and the hierarchy it places on race is damaging enough already.
