The Model Minority
To the Editor:
In addition to those other standout “model minorities” described by Louis Winnick [“America's ‘Model Minority,’” August 1990], there should be mentioned a small but upwardly mobile minority that has already made its mark in the San Francisco Bay Area: the Palestinian Arabs. Coming mainly from Ramallah and Jerusalem, they have shown the same drive and family orientation characteristic of those groups praised by Mr. Winnick.
I do not agree with their political aims, but I do admire what they have done.
