Key terms all included on quizlet Cumulative Information: Questions to Consider What are the main differences between Race, Ethnicity and Nationality?  How are they different than you originally thought? ∙ Race- the assumption of differences based on real or imagined physical  characteristics; assuming someone is a particular race because of what the  look like ∙ Ethnicity- a group of people that have something in common (religion, food,  language, etc.); do not have to come from the same place; refers to cultural  factors ∙ Nationality- where you are from/hold citizenship; country of origin ∙ Racism- taking the assumption of physical characteristics and assuming  someone is superior/inferior to you because of themWhat does the United States do with these categories? Why is the creation of the “Other” important?  ∙ The U.S. sets up racial and ethnic hierarchies (like a ladder, set up in our  minds) o When our country was made, white at the top. The more different you  ere, the more inferior and lower down on the ladder you were placed o Hierarchies change over time (war, making money, get used to them) o Every country has a different hierarchy (ex: in Nigeria, whites are not  at the top) ∙ The other/alien- anyone other than you (religion, political views, etc.); the  U.S. used this term to describe racial and ethnic minorities What are the waves of immigration and who came during those waves?  Which was the largest?  1. Formative Wave o Colonizing wave o Primarily the English o Second group that came during this wave did not come voluntarily Africans o Also Germans, Scots-Irish, Jews 2. First Wave o Called first wave because the English did not consider themselves  to be immigrants o Irish, Germans, and Chinese 3. Second Wave o A lot of people coming that shouldn’t; ends with the passing of our  first immigration law o Immigrants from South Europe (Italians), Eastern Europe (poles,  checks, Russians), largest migration of Jews from Russia and eastern  Europe, Japanese 4. Third Wave o Another immigration law passed that loosened things up o Everybody o LARGEST wave What is the process of emigration for immigrants? Why do they come?  Why do they leave? ∙ Why do they leave: push factors o Lack of jobs, famine, war, political turmoil, religion persecution o In some countries, some people may have a push factor while others  do not (ex: lower class getting killed; communism- upper class leaving) ∙ Why do they come: pull factors o Availability of jobs, freedom, safer living and better home conditions,  democracy (especially for women and people of color), education o Most importantly- we let them- very lenient compared to other  countries ∙ The Process of Immigration 1. The Decision to leave/not to leaveo Propaganda literature, ads in newspapers, travel accounts, American  letters, power of the return immigrant o Also anti-immigration forces including upper class use of clergy and  journalists, American letters 2. Traveling to the port city o Some use all money to get here and cannot get onto boat/plane 3. Take Temporary Residence in the Port City o Have to work now to get money to leave o Some may realize they no longer want to; first experience of city life 4. Crossing the ocean o Many in steerage, food costs extra, many went into debt to not starve 5. Take Temporary or Permanent residence in city of arrival o Can’t afford to get uptown o Goal: leave these areas- competition for jobs 6. TRYING to fit into American society o Make sure you say trying ! just saying “fitting in” is wrong! What are the differences between assimilation and acculturation? What  does the US want? What do immigrants want? What makes the process of  assimilation quicker/slower? ∙ Assimilation- giving up all of your past culture and totally adopting the new  culture o US wants anglo-conformity (completely giving up everything, train  themselves to be white overnight; expect this to be done very fast) ∙ Acculturation- pretend to assimilate on the outside, but when you get  home, you speak original language, practice original religion, etc. Cultural  Pluralism o Immigrants want this- they do not want to give up everything o Here because they have to be, not want to be, and some even believe  they will go back home one day ∙ Making the process quicker/slower: o Age, education, money, not having family/being away from home,  having a culture similar to the U.S. What is the importance of “un-assimilate-able”? ∙ Un-assimilate-able is anyone that is not white o People in power will say that these people are un-assimilate-able, even if they try their hardest What are the three main models of immigration? How are they different?  What are their main ideas about immigration and citizenship (rights)? ∙ Virginia Model- pro-immigration for labor but NO rights; people can come to work but they have no say in government ∙ Massachusetts Model- exclude ALL, except those just like us; only people  exactly like them get equal rights ∙ Pennsylvania Model- Pluralism- the belief that we are happy that people  are different, and we want them to come inWhat are the definitions of Nativism and Xenophobia? How long has our  country been this way? ∙ Nativism-when you do not like somebody because of something about their  ethnicity ∙ Xenophobia- fear of somebody who is different from you o Take the idea of not liking an immigrant group and go much further,  assume they are invading the world, taking over the government,  taking over jobs, etc. ∙ Our country has always been like this! What are our first laws of citizenship/naturalization? How did we treat our  immigrants? ∙ Naturalization Act of 1790- Congress has authority to create a uniform  rule of naturalization o Three models: no limits, period of assimilation, restriction ∙ Naturalization Statues: o “Free white person” and children born abroad could become citizens o “Declare Allegiance” and “Good, Moral Character” o Today, it is five years that you must be here before becoming a citizen just know this law created the rule that you need to live in the  US for 5 years to become a citizen- was on pretest and midterm How did the WASP keep their power? Change who is WHITE WASPS were no longer the numerical majority but retain in power Majority and Minority have NOTHING to do with numbers! It means  POWER- WASPS are ALWAYS the MAJORITY in this class because they are  the people with POWER What are the factors of success for immigration according to WASPs? 1. Money- you must have it 2. Numbers- small numbers are good; large numbers are bad- WASPS fear loss  of power 3. Location- stay away from WASPS and not all together 4. Stereotypes- must be good 5. Assimilation- must fit in and totally replace your culture Who are the Immigrants of the First Wave? ∙ Irish, Chinese, and Germans o Chinese were the “other” we hate them so much we pass our first  immigration law against them) o Germans-largest group, yet we like them a lot What major movements were happening in America that affected them  during the First Wave? ∙ Nativist Movement- anti-immigrant platform; wanted to limit amount of  immigrants coming and who would be included; what can we do to stop  horrible immigrants from coming in but still allow the ones we like?o Will eventually become a political party o What is American?- white anglo saxon protestant born in America o “Gatekeepers of American Culture”- fear loss of power and worried  about children (blackening America; they did not want different colored children) ∙ Temperance Movement- idea of getting rid of alcohol o Believed immigrants a bunch of drunks, and alcohol leads to violence  and sin o Believed whites could not get drunk o Problem because Irish and Germans are big drinkers o Movement that will last duration ∙ Evangelicalism (Protestantism)- the spread of your religion; huge  movement to revive Protestant religion and make sure everyone is protestant o Professing that this is the ONLY religion that matters o Affected Irish and Germans because they are not protestant (although  they thought Germans were because of Martin Luther) o Immigrants called heathens (no religion) Know how Africans/African-Americans, the Chinese and the Irish compare  to immigrants for the Final Exam  Note: Remember, Irish were the only first wave group to go up the  hierarchy. Germans went down because of WWI, then hyper assimilated to  go back up. Chinese never went up because they are “un-assimilate-able” ∙ Hierarchy, stuff like that, main things, will be used in a question like  comparing groups together.  o EXAMPLES: Mexicans constantly compared to Africans o Irish institutional Catholic Church, Chinese Six companies,  what did the Italians do that is similar?  Created mutual aid  societies Information for the Final Exam Lectures: Lecture: Immigration from China, Part II What were the stereotypes of the Chinese? How do you see them in  political cartoons?  1. Inferior Race o Inherently different, the “yellow-race” yellowness implies sick, diseased, urine, feminine (calling someone yellow is calling them girly) o Seen as an inherently “weak” and “feminine” race because of  their appearance (dress, height) and jobs (took on feminine jobs) 2. Perpetual “Alien” o Means they can never assimilate o Remember un-assimilate-able is based only on physical  characteristics- only thing immigrant groups can’t change (this was a midterm question!)o WASPS portrayed them as women because of long hair and silky  clothes; also had a different language (Problem to WASPS is not  the English they speak but their accent) o Completely different religions (WASPS call them heathens; not  heathens, but Buddhism is SO far from protestant) o Live in ethnic enclaves o No desire to assimilate or even acculturate because of return  migration 3. “Immoral” o Seen as criminals, not because they break laws but because they are associated with being morally wrong o Opium dens- WASPS say Chinese are immoral for bringing  opium to the US o also seem as immoral because they do not go to church (instead  go to temple and worship a statue- very different from WASPS) 4. Invaders o “Yellow Peril”- Chinese taking over all low-paying jobs in US o this stereotype was set by other immigrants, not WASPS  (WASPS okay with this stereotype) o other immigrants hated the Chinese because they work for less o Seen as invasion in Cali because of the super small population  (300,000 really not that many) In political cartoons- One shows Uncle Sam being eaten by the Irish on the  East Coast and Chinese on the West. Another shows Chinese meeting African Americans on Rocky Mountains, saying they are equal What type of discrimination did the Chinese Immigrants face?  (Remember: discrimination is done to immigrants by WASPS)  ∙ People vs. Hall- Chinese cannot testify against whites o “a race that nature as marked as inferior”- basically saying they  are not human and should nit be able to engage in citizenship ∙ Page Act of 1875- our first immigration act passed by Cali limiting  who can come undesirables and prostitutes o Chinese didn’t care because they are already here, but then: ∙ Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 o Passed first by Cali, then the US o Says Chinese cannot immigrate to the US o Problem? The Chinese leave! Return Migration!

(Remember  resistance is what immigrants do to WASPS) ∙ Chae Chan Ping vs. US 1889 this is resistance!  o Six Companies and Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Society  take US to court and say this is against the constitution  (unconstitutional) o Decision US can exclude people, Chae Chan Ping cannot come  back in o Opinion federal government will pass every immigration  restriction from here on out, states are not allowed to do this  US can also pass any immigration law they want to ∙ Chinese did not care about assimilation because they were a return  migration ∙ Chinatown-trying to create China in the US ∙ Set up the Six Companies- Kongsi-6 clans that are import export  individuals that have made a home in both US and China; take on the  role of what the Eldest Male does in China, like tell Chinese what job to  take, where to live etc. o Through the six companies, the Chinese get families and keep  culture ∙ Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Society takes place of Six  Companies for all Chinese outside of San Fran ∙ Refusing to assimilate How did the Chinese Immigrants work up the hierarchy in the United States?  ∙ Other groups usually move up by children, voting blocks, other groups  coming in, assimilation; Chinese do none of this; they DO NOT  MOVE UP THE HIERARCHY Lecture: Immigration from Germany What was the process of German emigration? This was the largest immigration to the US- over 8 million Germans  immigrated to the US Origin: all over; Class: all three; Occupation: all; Politics: very liberal and  active; Religion: Catholic, Protestant, Jews, and Free Thinkers; also different  from other groups because dressed very nice, do not look poor Know the process of emigration for each group know how each group did  this. A lot of comparison on the exam ex: how did Chinese come differently  than Germans, etc.  ∙ The Trip o Most have money (or paid by government), so skip step of  living in port cityo Steamships- faster and better, also cheaper; had 3 classes on  boat in different areas o Bulk of immigration from Germany- family Why did the “Germans” leave their countries? 1.
