Chapter 9 Asian Americans

Another example of group diversity is the Asian American community that is made up of numerous groups, cultures, languages, and history in the U.S. These groups have a variety of faiths from Buddhism to Confucianism, Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity. Cultural traits “tend to stress group membership, kinship relations, sensitivity to the opinions and judgement of others,” This is different from our American cultural traits and values. Like many world cultures, “traditional Asian cultures are male dominated, and women were consigned to subordinate roles.” (our textbook). All these traits would change to some degree through assimilation like the third and fourth generation for a group like the Japanese Americans. Asian cultures stress the importance of maintaining respect, good opinions, avoid shame, and public humiliation, and uphold honor. Asians believe in Anglo conformity and hard work, while retaining their culture (pluralism). Chinese women are faithful and serve their husband and eldest son. Women under Confucianism had four virtues: chastity, obedience, shyness, and pleasing demeanor, and skills in domestic duties. There are other experiences that the Chinese and Japanese experience in labor and labor unions, they are part of the U.S. labor history from 1849 to the present. They would experience policies like the “Alien Act.” Quota Act 1917, Gentlemen Agreement Act, the 1924 immigration act, and many others. Like many chapters, Asian American SES will be discussed in the last part of the chapter. Don’t forget to study the “model minority” arguments.

Chapter 10 New Immigrants

Chapter 10 profiles the new immigrants using a variety of factors based on: country of origin-developed (rich) or underdevelopment (poor), are they from a rural area or urban areas? Language conflict? Class background? skilled or unskilled? education? profession? Religion? Reasons for leaving their country?Do they experience prejudice and discrimination? This week’s report questions cover all the issues that the lecture covered. We want to find out what the new immigrant experience are like.
