A refugee is a person who has been forced to leave their home country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster. There are many different types of refugees, these include refugees who are escaping war, social discrimination, racial discrimination, religious persecution, those who are seeking aid after a natural disaster, political unrest, and those who fear for their lives and the lives of their family. These people are given refugee status and are placed in designated refugee camps across the country where they are supposed to be cared for and educated, but this is not happening.

In the pieces that we read of refugees fleeing Vietnam, refugees, like Ha, have to overcome the challenge of feeling inside out and back again, facing conflicts like having limited resources and learning a new language. Ha’s family faces many different varieties of challenges, one challenge that she faced is having limited resources. Ha explains, “...rations is now half a clump of rice…” (Lai,88). Traveling over seas and rivers, not only is Ha’s family struggling, but other Vietnamese are struggling as well. Moving across water with little resources cause them to have rations.

1. The central moral or ethical problem explored in Farewell to Manzanar is the isolation the Watatsuki family experiences. The time period the book was written in was difficult because of racial issues and constantly moving around looking for jobs, in other words, living like a migrant worker. “The people who had it hardest during the first months were young couples like these, many of whom had married just before the evacuation.” (21) This quote shows couples were being separated unless they were legally married. It was also hard to keep families with children together.
Racism is apparent throughout Lorraine Hansberry’s “A Raisin in the Sun” in which we follow the life of an African-American family in Chicago in the 1950’s, who are trying to move out of the slums through the insurance money that they got from Mr. Young’s death. But this would be become a challenge for them as they are in the midst of a racial segregation in which they were not allowed to have the same rights as their white counterparts. Such as having the ability to obtain the same jobs, education, and being able to purchase the same houses as their white counterparts. This does put African American’s at a disadvantage, as in many cases they are unable to leave the lower class and are continued to look down upon by those that in a higher class them or a white skin color. Furthermore, white people in the 1950’s discriminated against race according to racial discrimination and Class-based bias.

During the war years, morale was low and Americans were afraid to go to war, however; the Double V campaign encouraged Americans to fight for democracy and victory abroad and at home. Unfortunately, it didn 't include all Americans.

Many immigrants have an extremely difficult time migrating to different parts of the world due to cultural differences, language barriers, and homesickness. Nowadays, there are translators and help available for those that are migrating from different countries. However, what if someone had migrated to the United States and barely had any of that support? The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down is an incredibly touching book speaking of the struggle of the Hmong immigrants and the walls that were built between them and Americans, particularly the American doctors and medical system.
