    Perceptions: Asian Americans A waitress asked: "Where are you from?" I told her my great-grandfather came to work the mines in New Mexico. My grandfather was a tailor in Oakland and my mother was born in Stockton. And the waitress interrupted and without any hesitation said: "So how do you like your new country?" a Chinese American attorney He asked the price of beef. Then he said: "You Koreans charge too much." My brother said: "I'm not Korean, I'm Cambodian." But he's mad. He says: "You Koreans rip us off." a Cambodian-born store owner The growth and diversification of the Asian American population in recent years has been nothing short of phenomenal. Driven by sustained immigration and refugee resettlement during the 1970's and 1980's, Asian Americans have emerged as the nation's fastest growing racial group. Given that the school-age Asian American population doubled in the 1980's and is expected to double again between 1990 and 2020, our schools and the larger society must confront some critical questions. For example, what do we know and what can we teach and learn about Asian Americans? Asian Americans number more than 9.1 million in the U.S. and represent more than thirty different nationalities and ethnic groups, including Samoan, Tongan, Guamanian, and native Hawai'ian from the Pacific Islands; Lao, Hmong, Mien, Kmhmu, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Thai, Burmese, Malay, and Filipinos from Southeast Asia; Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, and Sri Lankan from South Asia; Afghani and Iranian from Central Asia; and Korean, Japanese, and Chinese from East Asia. In the year 2000, the six largest Asian nationalities in the U.S. will be Filipinos, Chinese, Vietnamese, Koreans, Asian Indians, and Japanese. The diversity of Asian Americans, in terms of their various languages, cultures, and histories is remarkable.

Study Finds Deadly Spike in Racial Violence Against Asian Americans
[Los Angeles Times - 3/11/02] Racist attacks against Asian Americans spiked significantly nationwide after Sept. 11, claiming two lives and causing injuries to dozens more, according to a report released today by the National Asian Pacific American Legal Consortium. The study, "Backlash: When America Turned on Its Own," tracked 243 incidents in the three-month period after the terrorist attacks. By contrast, bias-based attacks against Asian Americans for typical 12-month periods number around 400, according to the report. Victims included a Sikh American from Mesa, Ariz., who was shot and killed by a gunman who yelled "I stand for America all the way," and a Pakistani American grocer who was killed in Texas. Nonviolent crimes against Asian Americans ranged from vandalism to verbal harassment. Businesses have been pelted with Molotov cocktails and homes burned to the ground, according to the report. Among those targeted have been women and children. Singled out as targets, according to the report, have been South Asian Americans, including Indian and Pakistani Americans, but especially Sikh Americans, a religious group often mistakenly perceived to be Arab because many of their men wear turbans and long beards.

Who We Are "Asian American" refers to persons whose familial roots originate from many countries, ethnic groups and cultures of the Asian continent, including (but not limited to): Asian Indian, Bangladeshi, Bhutanese, Burmese, Cambodian, Chinese, Filipino, Hmong, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Laotian, Malayan, Mien, Nepalese, Pakistani, Sikh, Sri Lankan, Thai and Vietnamese. According to US Census Data, the Asian American population consists of these percentages of ethnicities: 23.8% Chinese, 20.4% Filipino, 12.3% Japanese, 11.8% Asian Indian, 11.6% Korean and 8.9% Vietnamese. Seventy percent of US Asians are immigrants who entered the US during one of three distinct immigration waves: before 1975, between 1975-1979, and 1980 or later. Most Asian Americans who have arrived since 1965 still live in ten large metropolitan areas. In 1996, an estimated four in ten Asian Americans lived in California. These US Asian-born individuals emigrated from countries with the overall lowest breast cancer rates in the world.

Pakistani/Indian-Americans Raise Political Visibility (South Asian Americans pursue separate political paths) by Judith D. Trunzo Washington File Writer Washington, November 1, 2000 Indian-Americans have increased their political visibility in the current election year, which has been marked by an exchange of visits between the U.S. president and the Indian prime minister. While their number remains small compared to other ethnic groups, Indian-Americans are compensating by using "intellectual fire power" and fund raising ability, according to Narayan D. Keshavan, Special Assistant to U.S. Representative Gary L. Ackerman (D-NY), Co-Chairman of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans. In the current campaign, a number of events sponsored by Indian-Americans have garnered sizeable sums for the Democratic presidential candidate, Vice President Al Gore. The candidate and President Clinton have attended several of the events, some sponsored by Indian-American executives of high technology firms based in California. The increased role for Indian-Americans comes in a year when the U.S. president undertook the first visit to the Indian sub-continent by a sitting American president in more than two decades. Prior to the March 2000 visit, the dialogue between the two countries had broadened, and the United States had become India's largest investor. Indian exports to the United States rose sharply, and American companies urgently sought Indian high technology workers. Then in September 2000, Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee reciprocated the Clinton visit, to the immense pride of Indian Americans.

    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"), which was popularly used before the 1990s to describe East Asian peoples regardless of nationality, upbringing, or origin.

    Pakistani Ambassador to the United States H. E. Nitya Pibulsonggram Thai Ambassador to the United States Panelists covered a broad range of topics on how Asians view Asian Americans, such as:
    • perceptions of Asian Americans in Asia,
    • homeland media coverage of Asian Americans,
    • role of homeland government in addressing Asian American issues,
    • the economic effect of Asian Americans on their homeland economies, and
    • effect of U.S. and Asian political relations on Asian Americans.
    According to moderator Robert Oxnam, broader dialogue is needed between Asian Americans and other ethnic communities as well as between Asian Americans and Asians. Panelists covered a broad spectrum of topics, ranging from Asian perceptions and media coverage of Asian Americans to the roles of Asian governments in addressing their needs. Most panelists suggested that Asians have an overall favorable impression of Asian Americans. Nitya Pibulsonggram said that the Thai, for the most part, look favorably on Thai Americans. Certainly, the Thai maintain an emotional link with their compatriots in the United States, whom they refer to as "Thai in America." Thai Americans, moreover, maintain a Robin Hood image among homelanders because of the large sums of money that they send back to their relatives.
