Asian American literature is a growing new field. It is considered one of the subdivisions of multicultural literature. The literature today like the Joy Luck Club are best sellers in the book market and there is a growing demand for more.
The Asian population of the United States today continues to rapidly increase and they constitute about 2.9% of the total American population. According the 1990 census, the largest Asian minority in the United States are the Chinese Asian population. Of that percentage, Chinese is the largest with a largest percentage being foreign born. The second largest group is the Filipino which constitute 19%. Japanese make up 12% with most of them being native born. Indian and Korean each are at 11% and Vietnamese make up 8% of the population. Another subgroup of Asians includes the Hmong (mung) which are a culture group that immigrated 5,000 years ago from China to the mountainous region of Laos, but many were forced out of their territory during the Vietnam War because they helped the United States during the conflict.

    San Francisco School Board, l905
    In response to the challenge of changing demographics more than a century ago, the San Francisco School Board established a segregated Chinese Primary School for Chinese children to attend, including those who were American-born. By the turn-of-the century after Japanese immigrants had settled in the wake of Chinese exclusion, the School Board also applied the Chinese segregation policy to Japanese students. School superintendent, Aaron Altmann, advised the city's principals: "Any child that may apply for enrollment or at present attends your school who may be designated under the head of 'Mongolian' must be excluded, and in furtherance of this please direct them to apply at the Chinese School for enrollment." Throughout their history, Asian Americans have confronted a long legacy of exclusion and inequity in relation to school policies and practices, particularly during periods of changing demographics, economic recession, or war. In spite of historic, linguistic differences, distinct Asian nationalities have been grouped together and treated similarly in schools and in the larger society. The grouping of Asian Americans together, then, makes sense in light of historic links from the past to the present.

Chinese Immigration Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882
Most of the Chinese who came were poor male villagers. Known as "sojourners," they left their wives and children with the idea of making enough money to return to China. To Americans, the Chinese appeared alien, due more to cultural differences than racial characteristics. Compounding the problem, Chinese sojourners maintained a psychological and social separateness from American society by maintaining the values, norms, and attitudes of their homeland, and men still dressed according to Chinese custom with long queues (braids), felt slippers, cotton blouses, and little round hats.
Opposition began as Chinese gold miners, mining locations Americans considered worthless, made them profitable. Because men far outnumbered women, Chinese seized opportunities as cooks, launderers, and household servants. Charges were made by Whites that the Chinese depressed wages and lowered the standard of living. This backlash, along with the lawless setting of the frontier, resulted in violence against the Chinese.
Government intervention concerning hostility to Chinese immigration began with a treaty with China in 1868 giving Chinese in the United States the privileges of travel or residence as citizens of nations with most favored status, but excluded the right of naturalization. The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 barred any heavy immigration of Chinese. From 1908 to 1930, 72,796 Chinese departed while 48,482 arrived in America.

One story of Washington state is a story of immigration, but it is not the simple tale of assimilation or acculturation. Immigrants brought pieces of culture from their native lands to Washington state, where they melded them with pieces taken from American culture. Immigrants did not remain unchanged or melt into a common society, however. Instead, Washington is a mosaic made of different peoples coming together to create new lives in a new land. The Asian American experience is part of this mosaic. Thedocuments that accompany this essay demonstrate how Chinese, Japanese, and Filipinos came to Washington, struggled against discrimination, labored to earn their living, and created distinctive cultures and identities. These documents chronicle, in a small way, how some Asian immigrants became Asian Americans.

PART 1 OF 4 o you perk up when an Asian face or name appears in an American movie, TV show, public performance, book, magazine, newspaper or web page? If you're like me and like most Asian Americans I know, the answer is yes! Asians of diverse ancestries identify with one another as intensely as members of any American ethnic groups. White Americans are often puzzled by this phenomenon. They don't pay particular attention to a fellow WASP, German American, Irish American or Italian American, they argue in earnest, baffled tones. Or, if they pride themselves on being particularly knowledgeable about Asian culture, they may say something like, "But I thought Chinese, Japanese and Coreans hated each other." It's when we hear statements like that that we most feel the yawning chasm that separates us from non-Asian Americans and feel the deep bond with other Asian Americans, regardless or their family's particular national orgin. For the benefit of non-Asians reading this, let me offer a clue. Imagine that you're a white person living in Japan, China or Corea. Imagine too that you speak the language as fluently as anyone, that your family has laid down roots there, maybe having lived there for two, three, four or even five generations. Your face remains caucasian, of course, but you are a loyal, taxpaying citizen of that Asian nation. In the event of hostilities, you or your family members will be called on to fight in its armed forces.

a look at the history of Asian Americans...
During the nineteenth century, Anti-Asian hostility and the fear of "cheap" Asian labor led to the call for the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 which suspended the immigration of Chinese laborers for 10 years. A Cartoon from The Wasp Magazine of 1893, vol. 30, pp. 10-11 reads: THE QUESTION Of THE HOUR: Uncle Sam: "Gosh ! I've got this critter lassoed right enough but how in thunder am I going to get him over thar to China? [from Ron Takaki, Iron Cages During WWII Anti-Asian hostility was directed against the Japanese, while Chinese became the "good" Asians. There was a concerted effort to try to distinguish Japanese from Chinese, even by using "physical anthropology." Here is one example: A look back at Life magazine of December 1941: Even Chinese and Koreans tried to distinguish themselves from Japanese by wearing "I am Chinese" or "I am Korean" buttons.

Asian American
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
An Asian American is a person of Asian ancestry or origin who was born in or is an immigrant to the United States The term "Asian American" is credited to the historian Yuji Ichioka who, in the late 1960s, used it to describe members of a new pan-ethnic radical political identity who shared common histories, experiences, and goals. This term has largely replaced the politically loaded term "oriental" (that referred to Western notions of a subjugated colonial "other", fr. orientalism ), which was popularly used before the 1990s to describe East Asian peoples regardless of nationality, upbringing, or origin. Although immigrants from the " Middle East " (Western and Central Asia) are geographically Asian, they have generally neither been sufficiently visibly distinct as a group in America nor have they historically arrived in such large numbers to warrant attention as a major American racial or ethnic group until very recently (see ). As a result, they are not considered by most Americans to be typical Asians or Asian Americans, but identified by other means, such as " Arab Americans ". For these same reasons, northern Asians such as Siberians and peoples from former
