Notable Quotations Choose two of these quotations to write about in your journal, and to talk about in class; which strike you as most significant, insightful, or helpful in light of our course material thus far? Race is an invention, not a noticeable genetic presence, and cultural traits are brute concoctions of the social sciences. Gerald Vizenor Those [early European immigrants] who came to the United States didn't realize they were white until they got here. They were told they were white. They had to learn they were white. An Irish peasant coming from British imperial abuse in Ireland during the potato famine in the 1840s, arrives in the United States. You ask him or her what they are. They say, "I am Irish." No, you're white. "What do you mean, I am white?" And they point me [a black person] out. "Oh, I see what you mean. This is a strange land." Cornel West Immigration . . . has required a process of racialization so that the prevailing national identity could be maintained. Earlier in this century Irish, German, Swedish, Italian, and Polish immigrants were also scapegoated and defined out of the national identity, not being the preferred "Anglo-Saxon." Later, as they embraced Anglo cultural supremacy, and also could be seen as white, inclusion became possible. Immigrants of color, on the other hand, largely remained outside Americanism. Linda Martinez The concept of a white people is a creation; the same is true of black people, of yellow people, and brown people. The concept of race that now plagues the whole world is an artificial European invention. . . . While the word race and the concepts around it are artificial, the effects of its creation are real.

ANALYSIS:
The term Asian American acknowledges the collective experiences and various perspectives of this group, according to David Mura in his article, “The State of Asian America.” Mura, a Japanese American writer, says that the difference between the traditional mainstream art model and the Asian American Renaissance prototype is that one attempts to “explain” art to a “uniformed” audience where as the latter recognizes that the audience creates the art. Therefore, Asian American artists do not “explain” their art because it is conceived by what Mura calls, “a constant dialogue with each other.” Through this dialogue, he says, Asian Americans are able to give a voice to its people.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau , Asians and Pacific Islanders make up the fastest growing racial group in the United States, numbering more than 10 million people, or nearly 4 percent of the total population. The diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander American population includes members of more than 30 ethnic groups who speak more than 300 languages and dialects. "Emerging Together" is the national theme for this year's Asian Pacific American Heritage Month , a time to honor the contributions, heritage, and traditions of Asians and Pacific Islanders. One of the reasons May was chosen for this celebration was to pay tribute to the first Japanese immigrants, who came to the United States in May 1843.

(213) 977-7500, ext. 237 New Report Explores Backlash of Hate and Intolerance Violence and Bias Rise Against Asian Pacific Americans Crimes Increasingly Violent in Nature LOS ANGELES, CA - The National Asian Pacific American Legal Consortium and its Affiliates, the Asian Pacific American Legal Center of Southern California and the Asian Law Caucus in San Francisco, released the ninth annual Audit of Violence Against Asian Pacific Americans: BACKLASH – Final Report. The Audit is the only publication of its kind that tracks violence specifically targeting Asian Pacific Americans nationwide. The Audit is particularly important as we remember the anniversary of the February 19th issuance of Executive Order 9066 which mandated the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II - a time when wartime hysteria and a failure of leadership led to a massive violation of civil, constitutional and human rights of a people simply because of their ethnicity and national origin. Furthermore, Representative Coble’s (R-NC) recent remarks supporting the internment of Japanese American citizens remind us how much work America has yet to accomplish in the fight against discrimination.

    The Co-optation of Asian American Feminism
    By Sonia Shah
    In recent years, mass media outlets have described the current state of gender relations as "post-feminist." In this post-feminist era, they say, feminist goals have become largely irrelevant and sexism as a social and political problem has been, for the most part, solved. Via the co-optation, commercialization, and ultimately, the subversion of feminist goals, mainstream commentators have successfully re-defined gender relations as something other than they are without widespread disbelief. Given the facts that patriarchy the cultural and institutional systems that privilege men over women still exists, and feminist activists around the country are still working to subvert patriarchy, the hailing of a "post-feminist" society is premature at best. Experience and studies show that women are poorer than men, earn less money than men, are beaten and raped by men, are harassed by men, and are demeaned and devalued by society. What the "post-feminist" era refers to is not a revolution in actual gender power relations, but rather a revolution in the representation of gender power relations. In the world created by advertising, fashion, news media, and the entertainment industry with notable exceptions women’s power is either equal to men’s, or if unequal, unequal in a way that is acceptable (annoying at worst) to women. In this media-created world, it’s easy for single women to raise children and hold down high powered jobs; working class battered women are funny and own big houses; women of color are rich and fashionable.

    September 24, 2002 Santa Clara, California The Robert N. Chang Charitable Foundation has donated $40,000 to Mission College in Santa Clara to form an Asian American Collection and Speaker Program. "The grant makes our dream of creating a core Asian American Collection a reality," says Win-Shin Chiang, Director of Library Services. "Now students will have an opportunity to learn first hand about different cultures and value systems from notable Asian Americans." The collection will contain materials by and about all Asian Americans, with special emphasis on works by and about Chinese Americans. It will include books and videotapes on the history, culture, as well as the economic, social and political conditions and contributions of Asian Americans. "Robert Chang was an avid reader and seldom seen without a book in hand," said Mr. Allan Liu, President and Director of the Foundation. "He believed in education. During his lifetime and through this Foundation, he has helped countless young people pursue their educational goals. The Asian American Collection will celebrate people like Mr. Chang and inspire others. He would have been proud to have such a uniquely important collection established in his honor." "This is an important donation to the West Valley-Mission Community College District that will benefit the entire Silicon Valley," says Stanley Arterberry, CEO and Chancellor of the District. "The public will be invited to attend lectures, use the collection and learn more about the integral role of Asian Americans in California and the United States."
