Conservative Spotlight
U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce
The Week of August 13, 2001 There is an ominous trend in government contracting, says Susan Allen , president of the U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce (UPAACC) . "We hear from the White House and others that small business is the backbone of our economy," she said. "At the same time, inside the procurement offices they are saying let’s give all the contracts to big companies. Now, there is a tendency to bundling contracts and handing all of them to a large company that fulfills them all." Allen and her non-profit group, whose members consist largely of small businesses owned by Asian-Americans, are fighting to keep small businesses alive in government contracting, an immensely important sector for business despite the small government that conservatives would prefer. "In fact, government contracting is the biggest business in the country," Allen said. "We don’t want to be shut out of it. We don’t want small businesses to be shut out of it. I support legislation that says the government ought to set aside a portion of all contracts for small businesses." Allen said that with the change of administrations, she expects the tax and regulatory climate for businesses in Washington, D.C., and around the country to improve. "We are a pro-free, open market organization," she said. "We are very pleased that [President] Bush achieved the lower taxes he campaigned on. We would like to see less regulation. Clinton helped his own people. He didn’t help the businesses I represent. But since Bush became President, I have been invited to the White House three times for meetings with him."

As members of the Southeast Asian American community, we know better than to accept the "model minority" image of Asian Americans. We see all around our communities the constant struggles that our families and friends face with difficulties in language, education, and employment. SEARAC wants to work with other organizations to ensure that issues that concern Southeast Asians are not buried underneath the gloss of the "model minority image." For example, we need to draw attention to the fact that 43% of Cambodians and 65% of Hmong in this country live in poverty; Vietnamese American women are five times more likely than European American women to suffer from cervical cancer; and over 60% of Hmong Americans live in "linguistically isolated" households.

Tulsa World
Sunday, July 16, 2000 English-Only Plan Draws Heat
By GINNIE GRAHAM, World Staff Writer Despite a ground swell of support to make English Oklahoma's official language, minority leaders are calling the move offensive and detrimental to basic services for immigrants. Organizers say more than 100,000 signatures have been gathered on an initiative petition to declare English the authoritative language and ban state money from being spent to provide documents and services in other languages. Advocates of the English-only proposal say it would mandate a common language and encourage immigrants to assimilate into the American culture. Chad Smith, principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, spoke out against the measure at a meeting of the American Indian Chamber of Commerce of Oklahoma Thursday in Tulsa. Smith said the law "personally offends" him for the symbolic nature of ignoring the American Indian history in the state. He points out that the state name is a Choctaw word and tribal languages were the prevalent vocabularies for centuries before European immigration. "It's a bit comical considering Oklahoma is Choctaw," Smith said.

(in Opinion) The Gay Asian American Male—Striving to Find an Identity
By Tom Lee “When I hear ‘gay community’ I automatically think ‘white.’ Being gay seemed like such a white thing. It never occurred to me that you can be Asian and gay,” says 22-year-old college student Alex,* who is of Chinese descent. “Even though I’m Asian and gay, I just never associated the two. It was always one or the other.” Alex’s sentiments echo that of many gay-identified Asian Americans today. To be gay and Asian is at most times a contradiction. Ethnicity and sexuality, while vastly different concepts, run parallel in terms of self-identity and societal acceptance. And for gay Asian Americans, these two aspects are intricately intertwined. Even when gay Asian Americans come to terms with their sexuality, they have to find a place in the community where their ethnicity is a welcome fit. But for many, the notion of an inclusive gay community is a concept that still seems out of reach.

50. Taiwan: Independence Or Unification? | Asian American Issues | Goldsea
I get more and more disgusted with these nonsense plans they put in legislation. whetherit is politically fesable for a ultra proindependce government to do
(Updated Sunday, Mar 23, 2003, 09:21:37 AM) he most pressing Asian foreign policy issue currently faced by the U.S. is the Taiwan question. The email we receive in reaction to our articles relating to this issue suggests that it's an emotional one for many of our readers. Perhaps one reason for the emotion is the fact that the issue isn't amenable to an easy or simple solution.
The first historical mention of Taiwan appears to have been when Portugese traders found it to be a resting place on their journey to Japan and named it Isla Formosa. Beijing's claim to Taiwan dates back to the 16th century when a Chinese general fought off the Portugese to claim the island for the emperor. In 1895 the expansion-minded Japanese annexed it after defeating China in a war on the Corean peninsula. China briefly reestablished sovereignty over Taiwan following Japan's defeat in August of 1945.
At the time the official government of China, as recognized by most nations of the world, was under the control of the Kuomingtang headed by Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek. He was engaged in a desperate war against Mao Tse-tung's peasant army. Despite billions of dollars of aid by the U.S. based mainly on intensely partisan reporting by Henry Luce's Time/Life empire, the spectacularly corrupt Chiang lost that war and fled to Taiwan with 2.5 million followers.

Page 6 of 7 o one is happier about Hollywood's spotted Asian successes than the office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) whose burden of combating perceived "unfair trade practices" has been markedly lightened as a result. So-called "non-tariff trade barriers" in a number of Asian nations have tumbled significantly since the Warner-China Film Accord, yet more evidence of the Chinese ripple effect. "Hollywood's strategy is very simple. They want as much money as they can get, and not give any back" Restrictions on the number of importable prints in Taiwan, for example, have all but diminished while Corean limits on the number of days that theaters could play foreign product also appear to be disappearing. In more restrictive societies, especially those like Malaysia and Indonesia, which have large Muslim populations, censorship is still an obstacle. Recent problems with films like Babe , an otherwise wholesome film by American standards but offensive to the Islamic view of pigs as "dirty" animals, underscore the lingering challenges. Centralized distribution monopolies like China Film's are also a characteristic of strict regimes like President Suharto's in Indonesia, where local laws even prohibit the opening of studio offices.

I want you to know, Norm, I welcome Republicans, Democrats (laughter) people who don't care (laughter) all Americans. You're welcome here. I am honored to welcome you. I didn't realize you sponsored the legislation that my Dad we call him Number 41 signed, which permanently made the celebration of Asian and Pacific American culture a month-long event. And that's what we're honoring today. I'm so proud to be the President of a diverse nation, a nation with 13 million Americans of Asian or Pacific Island heritage. What a great country, to welcome such diversity. Whether you're here by birth, or whether you're in America by choice, you contribute to the vitality of our life. And for that, we are grateful.

Distribution I: May be counted as a Distributional course in Society. Kao. This course presents an overview of sociological research on Asian Americans in the U.S., framed around the evaluation of Asian Americans as "model minorities." We begin with a brief overview of popular images of Asian Americans as seen through recent portrayals in mainstream media (movies, television). We review general sociological frameworks used to understand racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. and move quickly to document the history of Asian immigration to the U.S. We explore how Asian Americans fare in educational attainment, labor market experiences, political organizations, urban experience, and Asian interracial marriage and biracials. We examine whether and how "Asian American" is a meaningful label. 002. (AMES079, ENGL072) Introduction to Asian American Literature. (C)

Census policy advocacy and public education For the last two years of each of the last two decades, CAA has actively advocated to ensure that the Census implementation is carried out effectively in the Asian community. Because an accurate count of Asian Americans is critical to political empowerment, the enforcement of civil rights, and understanding the social service and economic needs of new immigrants, CAA has undertaken advocacy on Census related issues since the late-1970s.

The Migration Experience
The Big Push: Causes of Asian Emigration
Immigration Exclusion

Post-1965 Immigration

Southeast Asian Refugee Experience
The Big Push: Causes of Asian Emigration Push/Pull factors constitute a common theme that historians use to describe various patterns of emigration and immigration. Traditional push-pull theory, however, suggests that immigration is an uncontrolled, open process of natural flows of people where difficulties in the home country may push people to other countries that have favorable conditions that pull them there. This ignores specific political policies and other structural reasons that sometimes directly account for the migrations of people globally and historically. One important distinction that influences the push of Asian immigration and sets it aside from many other immigrant experiences is the fact that many of the roots of this experience evolved as a direct result of imperialism and colonialism. Economic devastation and political upheaval have wracked Asia in the wake of war and the conquest of Asian countries by waves of colonial expansionism. Pushes caused by foreign intervention carry serious implications for how refugees and immigrants are received in host countries and the power dynamics at work between the sending and receiving countries. Asian Americans have encountered different degrees of hostility depending on when and why they immigrated, where they settled, what economic niches they sought, and what international status their home countries had in relation to the United States.
