Chinese Immigration When Chinese people started immigrating from a vast number of small cities in China to the United States, it was for a better life and better job opportunities. Chinese immigrated mostly for the same reason, to find freedom. Immigration not only changed the lives of those moving away from China, but the American citizens themselves who already had their lives put together. Hard working Chinamen move to the US to work for a small amount of money to provide for their families. Companies in the US were in need for cheap laborers, this made Chinese immigrants a prime group of people as they had the values, and desire to work hard for their families no matter the risks they took, or the extra hours they had to work.
These reasons include historical problems, Chinese-American cultural differences and competitive level (include education level and English level also the specialize skills). For Chinese immigrants, they contribute a lot of America society both in the technology and economy according to the public affairs television; however, many Chinese-Americans think they are “living in the jail” with no civil rights.(Public Affairs Television, Between Two Worlds) signal phrase The conflicts is caused by the competitive. In one way, Chinese are trained to get good grade in the exam.
At the same time, they also had to repay loans to the Chinese merchants who paid their passage to America. These financial pressures left them little choice but to work for whatever wages they could. They would spend their opportunity cost on extra jobs. Non-Chinese laborers often required much higher wages to support their wives and children in the United States, which was unfair to the Chinese immigrant as they work more than the non-Chinese, and also generally had a stronger political standing to bargain for higher wages. Therefore many of the non-Chinese workers in the United States came to resent the Chinese laborers, who might squeeze them out of their jobs.
The Chinese luminary. The People of China during the Qing dynasty suffered from corruption, dictatorship and chiefly the shortage of sustenance. Moreover, people of china suffered from weakness and dwindling morale because of the sickly state of china back then. Huo Yuan Jia the Chinese master of Wushu and a legendary martial artist. Carol S. Pearson in her research “The Twelve Archetypes”, said “When everything seems lost the Warrior rides over the hill and saves the day”, inspiring and escalating the Chinese people’s morale.
Parliament voted in April 1840 that a British ship be sent to China stating their demands. Compensation for seized opium, end to Cohong monopoly, and the right to occupy and island of the coast to use as a base. This was the first of the unfair treaties. By June, a British expeditionary force had arrived on the Chinese
Back in the past, Japaneses believed China were the weakest countries in the world and they had the largest land in the world,that was the main reason why Japanese only killed Chinese and because they were afraid of other countries. Therefore, they entered China and wanted to take over all the Chinese territories. Japanese started believing that since the end of World War I, ultranationalism made them had a very strong feeling that they must enter and control
To this day, Chinese settlers outnumber Tibetans 7 to 1 in their own country. The hate was spread by way of leaders such as Mao Zedong and by the countless rumors of torture, murder, rape and mistreatment throughout Tibet. Though the more immoral treatment has lessened, China still controls and dictates Tibet, preventing them
Then let me talk out the wars that happened in China. One of the most famous wars is the Opium war, and not only the war, but the Opium also caused the homeless of the public. People at that time paid a considerable amount of money for the tax and the Opium. The reduction of the economy is the main reason why people become homeless. From another perspective, the civil war also possessed a negative impact on Chinese.
Cultural Interactions China has always complained about the invasion of western culture since late 1970s. They believed that the American and European countries have targeted the Chinese people and even some Chinese scholars said that the society has come through a “westification” process. After the cold war Beijing kicked off a program of cultural awareness in and outside the country to restore Chinese culture. Outside China the move was represented by introducing the Confucius Institute in 2004. The first was inaugurated in Seoul, South Korea and today hundreds of them are active across the globe.
Now in China thanks to judicial guidance in the divorce the properties don’t just split, but they are all given to the name that is on the deeds. Men look for the homes and look for the family, but women's help is crucial for this, because men need a family to get the home. “Leftover Women: The Resurgence of Gender Inequality in China” Is a book which explains perfectly the situation of women in China and how, by unknown circumstances the gender inequalities in China have reborn, which makes women feel inferior and low. Gender inequalities in Japan: For women job hunting are much more difficult than men, because companies think that when they get pregnant or marry, they will hire, I understand that opinion, but that is not an excuse, because lots of women don’t marry or have kids, so just because they are women they don’t have the opportunity to have the same job that a man will get, and that is not correct, why should men have better jobs than men, they are all equal, aren’t
The number one country that immigrates the most people to the United States is China, not surprisingly. China has roughly 19 million adults looking to move to America, “the land of opportunity”, and escape the communist leadership in their country (Gallup). In America, 1775, war had just begun to fight for the rights that the colonists knew they deserved. In some countries, people are currently paying “the price of chains and slavery” (Henry 8). Immigrants come to the country with the horrible experiences of lack of rights and are gifted with “peace so sweet” and freedoms that they never could have imagined.
Asians immigrating to North America have done so since the colonists, but their immigration has not prospered until the late 1870s. Specific groups, like the Chinese and Japanese, were targeted for discrimination and other atrocious acts. White Americans had a stereotypical way of thinking about immigrants from Asia, and how they were going to impose menace and the outsourcing of jobs. They also became physical and labor threats for the nativists, and subsequently these nativists did everything in their power to enforce regulations that could potentially weaken Asian groups. Therefore laws such as the Chinese Exclusion Act were created solely based on race and color.
As the foreigners, the Chinese first avoided the interaction with the Americans, while suffering various ways of discrimination. The Chinese that worked in gold fields brought their own method for mining of gold to the United States, which improved their efficiency a lot . This caught the local Americans’ attention. Some landowners and merchants preferred Chinese coolie, which means ‘kidnapped, enslaved, or indentured servants’, and they started to employ more Chinese than the Americans. The immediate loss of job and financial support pissed the American citizens off.
