The Gold Rush ushered Asians into the U.S • Asians taking over business/jobs • Disputes between Korean shopkeepers in run0 down community’s w/ poor black clientele • Blacks argue Asians treat them with disrespect and siphon money from community • Asians accuse blacks of being rude and shoplifters Believed that the nations best University’s hold down # of Asian students being admitted -Title IV of the Civil Rights act of 1964 must not discriminate on basis of color, race, or national origin Interment Camps= Asians rounded up into work camps Vincent chin= Lived in Detroit of Chinese Ancestry.. died by beaten to death Hawaii= Asian American Majority Kehs= cooperative capital (Asian Americans viewed as poor credit risks) Churchill Since 1990s there has been increasing wave of controversy regarding the names of professional sports teams (Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Chiefs) -à Players and managers of team explain that it is not a virulently racist practice or insult but to honor native peoples Indians (falsely) perceived as being too few, too weak, to defend themselves effectively against racist and otherwise offensive behavior Stanford University opted to drop the name ‘Indians’ The redskins now referred as “the Washington team” Julius Steicher= “crimes against humanity” -ordered to death for having served as a publisher/editor of a barbarian tabloid “Der Stumer” (anti- sematic editorials and news stories) 1900= Native Americans (NA) cleared from their land while their population was reduced by 98% - They were scattered onto reservations under self-assigned full power of the government. 1880s-1980s nearly ½ of all NA children transferred from their own families, communities, and cultures to the conquering society. à “decultured” Pervasive foster homes and adoption programs “blind adoptions”= children would be permanently denied information as to whit het were/are and where they’d come from. The purpose of this?: “assimilation” of indigenous societies -genocide convention -Indians served as props
