Harris County Public Library As our country becomes more diverse due to a constant influx of immigrants, children must learn to accept and adapt to a variety of values and cultural backgrounds, including languages. Bilingualism gives students the necessary tools to thrive in a multicultural society.
June 19, at 5: Im reposting this from the PUA thread, because I feel as though it is pertinent here as well: On the flip side, the whole reason why we are in this whole mess is, like mentioned above, it is a zero-sum game, that is fought via power and social status.
The whole reason we are dealing with this is because America holds all the power. The truth is that Asian fetish is simply one more manifestation of a product that Western men and thus Western society want and acquire through their inordinate amount of power and standing in a geopolitical scale.
If that power were to shift, then things would be different. Look at China for example.
It is through sheer power and financial standing that China can make these demands. Asian Americans have been criticising media for decades and I see very little difference between characters in the s Joy Luck Club and our current society today.
It is the ultimate root. Again, there are no easy steps, as this whole thing… is way, way bigger than any of us individual Asian Americans. But meaningful steps are clear. It would be helpful to form a new community, a group or type of Asian-Americans who are conscious and CONNECTED with their lands of ethnic origin — who work hard in America and then use their talents to build bridges and bring financial and cultural wealth to Asia.
Eric on June 19, at 5: There, I discovered what life could be like without having to deal with the racial antagonism and experiencing life with the full acceptance into the social fabric of a society. Relationships, I might add, were not a problem either. Being Asian-American is not enough, but being educated, in touch with your ethnic culture, and having the potential to bring wealth into Asian lands can grant you everything.
Using the institutions of the USA, and by hard work we can cultivate ourselves into entrepreneurs and individuals capable of bringing wealth and expertise to our ethnic homelands.
And after facing racial indignation here in the USA, is it not justifiably cathartic to use the USA as a stepping stone?
I wonder sometimes how many Asian-Americans really know that there is a better life out there? Eric on June 19, at 6: The solution is hard to find because the source of the problem is huge, historically massive, and greater than all of us.
Above is the ONLY solution. To train and build oneself to be a conduit between Asia and the USA, in an attempt to enrich Asia and build ourselves a NEW identity, an international identity as a new cosmopolitan elite, training in the USA and then setting up businesses, honing professional skills, and generating wealth in Asia.
It will not come easy. Western hegemony cannot be overturned in a decade, and probably not even in our lifetimes. But for that, there is a wonderful saying in the Jewish Talmud that I would like to borrow: Eric Most AAs know well and clear that living here and living in Asia will give them very different experiences.
There are AAs who would argue that they feel more at home in America, than in their ancestral homeland. There are AAs who would feel more comfortable under a Western hegemony than an Asian one.On Education and Education Technology - eLearning software is a collection of web-based software that allows students to view information related to their coursework and submit assignments to .
