Forever Foreigners or Honorary Whites? The Asian Ethnic Experience Today

by Mia Tuan

Tuan examines the salience and meaning of ethnicity for later generation Chinese and Japanese Americans, and asks how the racialized ethnic experience differs from the white ethnic experience. She interviewed 95 middle-class Chinese and Japanese Californians and analyzed the importance of ethnic and racial identities, and the concept of becoming a "real" American for both Asian and white ethnics. She asked her subjects about their early memories and experiences with Chinese/Japanese culture, their current lifestyles and emerging cultural practices, their experiences with racism and discrimination, and their attitudes toward current Asian immigration.
