  • Asian American Literature - 494 words
    Asian American Literature Asian Americans seem to be fighting an unwinnable battle when it comes to the content of their writing. Writers are criticized by whites for speaking out against discrimination, and by their fellow Asian Americans for contributing to the stereotypes through their silence. I believe that Asian Americans should include politics in their writing as they so choose, but should not feel obligated to do so, as Frank Chin suggests. For those Asian Americans who make known their discontent with the injustice and discrimination that they feel, in the white culture, this translates to attacking American superiority and initiating insecurities. For Mura, a writer who dared to q ...

  • Asian Superiority Myth - 489 words
    Asian Superiority Myth Ronald Takaki vocalizes in his article that "The Harmful Myth of Asian Superiority"is not to assume that all Asian Americans are indeed successful, so its incorrect to generalize any particular race as superior over another. I believe this is true in the US today Asians in public schools are made to be great students. This mentality fails when we realize that not all students are the same. Takakis persona is outraged at our own politicians using these broad assumptions to propagate why one race seems to succeed with little or no government assistance and others who cannot. Then to compare the success of Asians to the African American and saying "If Asian Americans can ...

  • Asians And Census 2000 - 536 words
    Asians And Census 2000 There are numerous reasons why full participation is in the Census 2000 is important to the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. The estimated undercount of the Asian Pacific Islander community in 1990 was 2.3%. Because census data is the basis for almost all demographic information used by policy makers, educators, and community leaders, undercounted communities miss out on their fair share of federal funding for services, adequate governmental representation, and enforcement of civil rights laws that prevent discrimination. An undercount prevents government and other agencies from planning for and implementing culturally and linguistically appropriate ser ...

  • Civil Rights - 1,454 words
    Civil Rights "Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won. You earn it and win it in every generation." Coretta Scott King, page666 The 1960s were a time of great turmoil in America and throughout the world. One of the main topics that arouse was black civil rights. In my essay I plan to compare the difference of opinion between these particular writers and directors, towards racism and the civil rights movement in the 1960s The movement truly got underway with civil rights leaders such as Martin Luther King jr. and Malcolm X in the early 1960s. Students who wanted to bolt on the equality and protest bandwagon quickly followed. Most of the students went to the Southern st ...

  • Contemplation - 631 words
    Contemplation The poem, "Suicide Note," by Janice Mirikitani, depicts an Asian-American female college student who committed suicide by jumping out of her dormitory window. Her last words, thoughts, and feelings were left behind in a suicide note, describing why this had to happen. This was a tragic accident that should not have happened, in fact, it should have been prevented. What drove this college student to kill herself? Was it her fault, or was she pushed so far that it became too much for here to take? It is revealed throughout this suicide note the many reasons why she decided to end her life. The suicide note begins with the phrases, "not good enough," "not pretty enough," and "not ...

  • Cultural Diversity In The Workplace - 1,367 words
    Cultural Diversity In The Workplace Juan Concepcion Managing Diversity in the Workplace Cultural diversity in the workplace is becoming more and more prevalent. Corporations in all industries are encouraging minorities, women, elderly workers, people with disabilities as well as foreign workers to join white males in the workplace. The following analysis will focus on these groups and how companies are encouraging them to join an ever-expanding workplace. Even if affirmative action is dismantled, diversity of the workforce is clearly here to stay. Business owners and managers, experts say, will still need to maintain or step up efforts to recruit and advance ethnic minorities in the year 200 ...

  • Discrimination - 1,490 words
    Discrimination Discrimination The topic of discrimination can be a very sensitive one to discuss. The world has always, and probably will always be faced with this problem. In all countries there is most likely at least one type of blatant discrimination that affects different groups of people. There are several different definitions for discrimination. The definition given in class is: the denial of opportunity, and/or equal rights towards a certain group of people. I believe that this definition is 100% correct. I think that discrimination is the denial of opportunity or equal rights toward a specific group of people. I also believe that discrimination is not just towards blacks, or any ot ...

  • Ethnic Diversity - 1,286 words
    Ethnic Diversity Affirmative action can be defined as action taken to compensate for past unfairness in the education of minorities. The current system of affirmative action allows universities to admit applicants from certain ethnic and minority groups with lower credentials. The main purpose of affirmative action is to produce a diverse campus population that is comparable to today's society. The use of race as a facto by which someone is admitted to college in the long run will compromise the quality of the university. Implicating affirmative action to solve the problem of diversity on today's campuses has lead to the creation of problems. The discrimination against Caucasian and Asian Am ...

  • Gender Equality - 1,664 words
    Gender Equality Tyrone Cloyd Baltimore, MD Gender equality has been a social concern since man step foot on earth. When we think of gender equality discrimination against women is what comes to mind, but in recent years psychologist and sociologist have began to study how men are discriminated against. It is considered general knowledge that men still make more money a year then women, and it is true that men hold most of the position of power in society. Recent studies have concluded that there is an aspect of society that discriminates against men. This aspect of society is deeply rooted in the American culture, and it is hard to name, to discuses, and to study. Gender roles for men, then ...

  • Hsi Lai Temple - 1,439 words
    Hsi Lai Temple Hsi Lai Temple Personal Perspective When this paper was first assigned to us I didn't have any clue as to which Asian American religion was worth doing research on. As timed passed and more thought was given to the project I finally decided to go with Buddhism. The reason why I choose Buddhism as my topic is to allow me to relate more closely to the friends and family members who are Buddhist. In my family most of them are strong believers in Buddhism. As a child I never really understood the things that went on during time of prayer at my house in Taiwan. This is the main reason why I choose this particular religion to do my study on. Hopefully by the end on this paper I will ...

Instead of entering law, medicine, or teaching, many of them turned to business. Beginning around 1980, North America saw the arrival of many Asian Indians who became self-employed and opened their own small business; some of these businesses, such as Indian restaurants and clothing shops, serve the needs of the growing ethnic community (54). Although the immigrants were often called Hindus or Hindoos in America, many of them were not followers of Hinduism, one of the major religions of India. Some of them were Hindus and some ...

Athletic trainers initially identified the majority of suspected concussions, and respective team physicians performed the examinations and made the final decisions. Once the diagnosis was established, neuropsychological testing was administered as soon as possible following injury (within 24 hours in all cases). The neuropsychological tests and self-report inventory used in the postinjury phase were identical to those used at baseline, although alternate and reliable forms of the HVLT and COWAT were administered to minimize learning effects associated with these measures.

  • Joy - 1,725 words
    Joy Luck Club Essay It is true that all people are created different, and thus no two cultures will ever be the same. Throughout Asian American literature there seems to be a struggle between the Asian culture and American culture. More specifically, there is a struggle between Asian women and their Asian American daughters, and what it means to be feminine, and how a woman should act. The main struggle is between how the American woman should act and how the Asian woman should act. However, the behavior of the Asian woman seems to be dominant through out the story because although the daughters and the mothers may not get along all of the time, the mothers to receive a lot of respect from t ...

  • Race In Education - 878 words
    Race In Education Fall of 1999, I applied for the University of Idaho to pursue a bachelor degree. I could be the first in my family to obtain this accomplishment. The issue that always came to mind was will I have enough money? Racial issues in the state of Idaho were a concern of mine also, for I was a member of a minority group. How is it possible for an Asian American, from a low-income family, suppose to fund their education and mentally tolerate racism in Idaho? I felt scared and uncertain of what the future held for me. I he question, "how does other minority groups deal and cope with the issues at hand?" When I graduated high school in 1994, I was uncertain of what I wanted to do. I ...

  • Racial Oppression: The System - 1,256 words
    Racial Oppression: The System The System Today, a serious problem exists all over the world. Racial oppression takes place in the poorest and the richest countries, including America. Racial oppression is characterized by the majority, or the ruling race, imposing its beliefs, values, and laws on the minority, or the ruled race. In most areas, the ruling race is upper class whites that run the "system", and have a disproportionate amount of power. In other areas, it may not be the white race, but it is still the race that is comprised of the majority, makes the laws, or has the most money. These are the keys to domination over the weaker minorities that don't have the power to thrive under t ...

Television and Race Race Televised: America's Babysitter At some point in the course of human events, America decided that the television was their Dali Lama, their cultural and spiritual leader. Overlooking its obvious entertainment based purpose, Americans have let the television baby-sit and rear their children. I do not recall a manifesto from the television industry, but society put television in a role it does not have authority in. The only thing television set out to do was provide the passive entertainment American society wants. True, television does not accurately reflect race in America, but it is not ...
