    From Inquirer.net:
    [Filipinos] also rank second only to Indians for having the least poor and least low-income community members among all Asians in the state. But they also have the lowest admission rates in the University of California system.

    These are some of the findings of a comprehensive new study of the Asian American community in California, “A Community of Contrasts: Asian Americans and Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders, 2013,”  by the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice, a coalition of several Asian American advocacy groups.

    One of the study’s aims is to “debunk the model minority myth” by
    showing the complexities within the Asian population as well as the diverse economic and health realities experienced by each ethnic group.
