Analysis: Diversity article

| No Comments

By Kiera Janzen

The Pioneer Press wrote a news story about a Hmong nonprofit group buying a popular Vietnamese restaurant in St. Paul. The story gives information about the Hmong nonprofit group and also discusses the restaurant and the Frogtown area where it is located.

This story moves beyond stereotype and into something more substantive by discussing the different Hmong and Vietnamese cultural groups within the context of the restaurant situation. Rather than just focusing on the cultural groups, the reporter tells a relevant story about a popular local restaurant while including important details about the cultural groups involved.

In order to gain information, the author of this article used officials from the St. Paul City Council, the CEO and president of the Hmong nonprofit group, and representatives from the Vietnamese restaurant as sources.
