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.

At the Center for Pan Asian Community Services, a recording greets callers in four languages Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese and English. Members of the recently formed Governor's Commission on Asian-American Affairs include Vietnamese, Chinese and Pakistani-Americans. Both illustrate the complex diversity of the metro area's growing Asian immigrant population, which reached nearly 136,000 in 2000, according to the census. Unlike the city's fastest-growing immigrant group Latinos community service organizations, businesses and government officials have found that there's no "one-size-fits-all" approach to dealing with the Asian-American community. Latinos share a common language Spanish and religion, mostly Roman Catholic.

Beginning Library Research on ASIAN AMERICAN STUDIES
Stanford University Libraries contain many titles on the historical and contemporary experience of Asian Americans, making it an excellent place for students conducting research in this area. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of Asian American, relevant titles are often dispersed throughout the general collection depending upon subject matter. Use Socrates , Stanford's online catalog to to locate books and other materials. Use the library's print or electronic indexes to locate journal and newspaper articles and published papers. Socrates can tell you what library materials Stanford owns and where they are located, allowing you to search by author, title, call number, organization, or subject. When searching Socrates , it helps to know the Library of Congress Subject Headings. One method of identifying the subject headings is to check the Library of Congress Subject Headings bound volumes. Another (online) method is to locate material you know is on your topic by doing an author (A) and/or title (T) search. Then look at the full display to see what

Diabetes mellitus poses a rapidly growing health challenge to Asian and Pacific Islander Americans in the United States. In 1997, the Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA) population was estimated to be about 10 million, almost a 50 percent increase since the 1990 Census and representing about 3.8 percent of the total U.S. population. This group includes people whose origins are in the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, and the Pacific Islands. Results of the 1990 census showed that the APIA population had the greatest increase of any major ethnic group, doubling in size since the 1980 census. The Immigration Act of 1965 and the arrival of many Southeast Asian refugees under the Refugee Resettlement Program after 1975 contributed to the increase in population observed in the past two decades. Asian and Pacific Islander Americans in the United States were classified into 28 Asian and 19 Pacific Islander ethnic groups for the 1990 U.S. census (see table 1). These populations include people whose families originated in a variety of countries, providing great diversity in language, culture, and beliefs. Nearly 75 percent are foreign-born, but other members of this group are fifth-generation Asian-Americans.

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.

Asian-Americans face victimization after Sept 11 attacks
By Akhilesh Upadhyay

NEW YORK: Jail Singh Chauhan, a pot-bellied and pleasant taxi driver originally from the Indian Punjab, says business has never been as bad as since last month's terrorist attack here.
"We are dead, sir, we are dead," he says, speaking for other New York City cabbies who, like him, come from South Asia. The city has 92,000 licensed cab drivers, according to the Taxi and Limousine Commission. Exactly how many are South Asian is not known but they are thought to number in the thousands.
In the weeks since the Sept 11 destruction of the World Trade Centre, the city's yellow cab fleet has reported a 50 percent fall in profits. "I don't remember worse times," sighs Chauhan, a Sikh who wears a turban.
Fares are lost or forgone for reasons both traumatic and cathartic. Some would-be passengers hail Chauhan's cab only to turn away at the sight of his beard and headdress, which to the untrained eye resemble Osama bin Laden's. "I can't change my face just because they don't like it, right?" he says.
Others hop in and offer him a sympathetic ear. He feels so thankful to some of them for letting him share his feelings that he politely declines payment of the fare.

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?

The diversity of Asian Americans, in terms of their various languages, cultures, and histories is remarkable.
