The Chinese immigrants, however, were not the only ones to receive such hate and discrimination. This eventually spread towards Japanese and many other groups of Asian immigrants. However, instead of banning them altogether, the government just segregated them under the San Francisco Segregation order in the year of 1906. However, the Japanese government got involved and spoke out against this treatment. As a result, this would lead to the compromise of the Gentlemen’s agreement.
In the United States, anti-Japanese sentiment had its beginnings well before the Second World War. As early as the late 19th century, Asian immigrants were subject to racial prejudice in the US. Laws were passed that openly discriminated against Asians, and sometimes Japanese in particular. Many of these laws stated that Asians could not become citizens of the United States and could not hold basic rights, such as owning land. These laws were greatly detrimental to the newly arrived immigrants, since many of them were farmers and had little choice but to become migrant workers.
The Chinese Exclusion Act was placed restricting immigration of all Chinese laborers on the presumption that it endangered good order. This act placed requirements on Chinese stating they must carry identification cards now as well. In addition to this, those who were already living in the country were mandated to get an approval on coming back into the country if they left for any reason. With intentions on only lasting ten years, the act was passed again in 1992, extending it an addition ten years following that. Following the loss of so many Chinese workers and cheap labor, the Mexican Revolution brought an abundance of immigrants into the United States looking of work.
Exploration shaped Australia because if sea explorers did not come to Australia. It would not be known today as it is. 3. What was life like for Aboriginal people before the arrival of the white faced people? Everything was peaceful and calm and they would not have any wars or man-made guns to fight, and that is why when the Europeans came to Australia there was big war fights between them and they claimed the land as their own because the small spears were no match for the guns.

Australia had come under attack from Japan during the war. Britain had promised to help Australia but had failed to do so and it was only from the help of the United States that Australia was able to keep the Japanese out. This incident made the Australian government realise that only 7 million people could not defend Australia and that they needed more people so that Australia would not be overwhelmed by any future conflicts. It was said that Australia had to ‘populate or perish’. At the end of the war in 1945, countries with devastated communities and economies started rebuilding.
Some Australians felt threatened by the amount of non – Europeans in Australia even though Europeans made up about 98% of the population. There was also a huge surge of nationalism at the time which made people want Australia for what they considered the Australians. The nationalism caused them value a ‘pure’ race of Australians in which there was no room for the migrants who had been living in Australia happily until that point. Many countries were greatly offended after Australia enacted the Immigration Act of 1901 but particularly Japan. They felt that they were a greater power than Australia and so the discrimination shown by Australia by passing the Immigration Act was a huge insult to them.
Very few people know that Oregon is a very racist state, and has created multiple laws in order to keep the state as white as it possibly can. One way of doing that was when Oregon first became a state and immigrants were coming to lie here for new opportunities, Oregon only allowed those who could assimilate to American ways and considered more desirable races over the undesirable races. Such as anyone from Germany or Scandinavia because anyone from those areas was viewed as the “self-image of Americans and Oregonians.” In Oregon, there have been similar views on immigrants of that are Asian and Latino, such as both are considered economical threats for different reasons. Latinos are considered to be lowering the state’s morals and civic values
According to Alfred Deaken, who actively campaigned for a “White Australia” in 1901, “We are guarding the last part of the world where higher races can live and increase freely for the higher civilisation.” The belief that these ‘degenerate’ populations would overtake and destroy the Anglo-Australian hegemony formed a large part of this exclusion. Similarly, refugees and ‘unauthorised’ immigrants represent an integral part of the contemporary immigration concerns. In a remarkable parallel with historical Australian thought, many potential immigrants have embodied a similar ‘risk’ to Australian racialized thought and have been portrayed as ‘deviant’ or ‘regressive’ (Goldberg 2002). What this demonstrates is that the exclusion of certain persons based on race forms a large part of Australia’s history and more damagingly is evident in contemporary government policy and
We have been taught and brainwashed by society to care about others and not for ourselves for instance look at the Chinese Immigrants. They were the only ethnic group in the history of the united states to be specifically denied entrance into the country. When allowed entrance into the united states they were denied civil liberties . They were prohibited by law to testify in court, to own property, vote, work and they were denied to marry outside of their race. Chinese immigrants prevailed and overcome this oppression
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.
