    We started this feature mainly to come up with role models for Fil-Americans specially to our youth. We've been called an invisible minority because we tried to assimilate to the American main stream as quickly as we can. We're hoping that by this feature, we can showcase that Fil-Ams too are as successful as other minorities and capable of achieving more.

  • 26. Frequently Asked Questions
    How many asian americans are there? About 7 million, or 3% of the population. Broken down by ethnic origin, about 1.5m are Chinese, 1.4m filipino, 0.85m
    Frequently Asked Questions From the newsgroup soc.culture.asian.american What's an Asian American?
    An American of Asian/Pacific Islander ancestry (Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Indian, Korean, Vietnamese, Pakistani, etc.).
    Immigrants are "first-generation" ; their children are "second-generation"; their grandchildren are "third-generation"; etc. The different Asian communities often adapt and add to this terminology to better describe themselves to each other and sometimes those terms are picked up and used by Asian America.
    For example: issei, nissei and sansei : 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation people (from the Japanese American community) 1.5 generation : someone who immigrated when they were a teenager (Korean American).
    Some people count 1st generation as the first generation being born in the USA, however, this is not the standard usage of the terms. To avoid confusion, please use the generally accepted definition, given above.
    There is often a big cultural gap between the first generation (who grew up overseas) and later generations (who grew up here) and is the topic of tons of Asian American literature. Often, language is lost somewhere between the first and third generation - making it hard for the different generations to communicate with each other. This further excaborates the gap.
    What's the difference between Asian Americans and other Americans?

    Stereotypes of Asian American Students. ERIC Digest.
    THIS DIGEST WAS CREATED BY ERIC, THE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES INFORMATION CENTER. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ERIC, CONTACT ACCESS ERIC 1-800-LET-ERIC This digest discusses the various negative and positive Asian American stereotypes. It also explores how school practices and individual educatorsconsciously or unconsciouslymay reinforce them. Doing so has important negative social, political, and economic ramifications for Asian Americans. Indeed, while Asian Americans are often characterized as the "model minority" (Lee, 1997, p. 442), many have serious psychological and emotional concerns which are not being addressed.
    The model minority stereotype that Asian American students are "whiz kids" (Brand, 1987) and immune from behavioral or psychological distresses prevents them from acknowledging academic and emotional problems and seeking help. S. Lee (1996) reports on a Cambodian student named Ming who was failing his classes but refused to seek help for his academic difficulties, believing that admitting his academic failure would cause his family to lose face (be ashamed). He was trying to live within the boundaries of the model minority stereotype, and as a result was perpetuating his academic problems, leaving him feeling isolated and depressed.

    Asian American Immigration CHINESE MIGRATION Beginning in the 1980s, we have been one of the fastest growing immigrant groups here in the United States. A 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act began to eliminate some of the anti-Asian racism. The act reunified families, protected the domestic labor force, and called for immigration of people with needed skills. It also made us eligible for citizenship, which we had long been waiting for. The 1965 Immigration Act abolished the national-origins quota system and created an annual quota of 20,000 of us Asians. Therefore, the amount of immigrants increased drastically as time progressed. STEREOTYPES Almost ninety percent of Chinese immigrants were women between 1946 and 1952. About 348,000 of us came here from Hong Kong and Taiwan between 1941 and 1980. Beginning in 1981, the number of immigrants increased coming from the mainland as opposed to coming from Hong Kong and Taiwan. We reached a population of 1.6 million people between 1980 and 1990. By the mid-1990s we were approximately one-third of all Asian Americans. As Chinese Americans, we are often mistaken for Vietnamese or Korean Americans. In 1994, Asian Americans were thought of as foreigners who consistently competed for jobs. We have been stereotyped as "model minorities" because we are ambitious and hard working. After the United States declared war on Japan in 1941

    The Lush Flowering of Asian American Drama
    By Paula Span
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Sunday, March 2, 1997; Page G01 NEW YORK-These days, David Henry Hwang can simply discuss his latest play, "Golden Child," which opened last night at the Kennedy Center. He can explain how the story had been simmering in his brain since he was 10, a suburban California kid who responded to news of his grandmother's illness with a sudden odd compulsion to preserve his family's history. He spent a summer in the Philippines, tape- recording the ailing Chinese matriarch's memories of her father and his three jousting wives, then turned the narrative into a 60-page novella. "An interesting foreshadowing," notes Hwang, who keeps a copy of the precocious manuscript (typed by his mother) here in his stylish duplex above Central Park. He can report on his grandmother's reaction she recovered and later moved to California when she saw "Golden Child" performed at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa a few weeks ago. "She said she feels bad that now everyone will think her mother was an opium addict. Which is true, she was," says Hwang, 39, with an affectionate grin and a shrug. "But other than that, I think she liked it okay." He can talk about the plans to take "Golden Child" to Broadway. Or about the screenplays he's toiling over.
