The American ships shown in this drawing (kept in Peabody Essex Museum), takes up nearly the entire frame. This is just the beginning of the differences of the Japanese and Americans in terms of technology. The Japanese were unable to invent new and improved technology nearly as quickly as other countries because of the lack of resources, the freedom to explore new options, and the ability to share ideas was limited. The struggle for resources may have been one of the biggest difference between the Western world and Japan. Since Japan was an island, much of their food sources came from the sea, and a substantial amount of the ground is unstable because of the surrounding water.
The bullying would continue to occur throughout my life in Japan before moving to China. While I was still inexperienced and innocent at that time, and probably didn’t understand the effects nor the definition of bullying; looking back, I feel like it was unfortunate for me to have experienced this social phenomenon at such a young age, yet, still feel somewhat fortunate to have had the experience of fighting against what is morally wrong and standing up for yourself. In a more recent context, I unfortunately encountered a similar social situation: racial and ethnic
She said that you knew which families were racist/prejudice, but not a lot of people were just out and bold about having negative feelings towards other racial group. I then asked her did she ever experience any racial/prejudice comments growing up. She stated that she never had any serious altercations or anything like that, but people always cracked Mexican jokes and borderline jokes towards her because of her Hispanic roots. She said the jokes did not occur until she was in 7th grade and that they were mostly made by the boys. The next question I asked was when did she realize that she was different from the majority of the people in her town who were fully white.
But now, she came back to Japan and heard the other language which made her perplexed her identity. “I was wondering if you could spare a week to come here. I know you are busy with school, but maybe you could make the time if it is not too inconvenient.” Her brother said. When she talked to her brother, she was unfamiliar to him
How different between Buddhism and Shintoism? Almost all Japanese think that Japan has no religion. In fact, it basically has two religions: Buddhism and Shintoism. However, Buddhism and Shintoism really adjust Japanese culture and life style, so Japanese usually are not conscious of these religions in their everyday life. Moreover, Japan intermingled Buddhism and Shintoism in the past, so many Japanese may do not know the differences exactly.
Migrant women in Japan can teach their children their own languages and raise them as bilinguals. Yet, ML transmission is hindered by the overwhelming dominance of the Japanese language, which is the only language that enjoys official status in Japan (Coulmas & Watanabe, 2002). The ethnolinguistic homogeneity that is prevalent in Japan arguably puts pressure on migrants to speak Japanese. The many migrants from Asia or with Japanese descent, such as third-generation Koreans, do not stand out in society due to their Japanese-like appearances and use of Japanese, (Tsuneyoshi, 2011). Their low visibility coupled with the apparent lack of linguistic diversity in society arguably discourages migrant parents from openly using their ML.
The social work theories that will be used in relations to the Yishun community are strengths perspectives, systems theory and social capital theory. Strengths Perspective Instead of focusing on the issue, the strengths perspectives centres on the community’s abilities, talents and resources. A focus on strengths does not represent that the community’s concerns and problems are ignored but they are not the focus of the intervention (Stuart, 2012). In Yishun’s case, the focus would not be on the unfortunate events that the community has been facing in recent years. By only looking at the deficits in Yishun, the Community Practitioner (CP) might overlook Yishun’s potential helping resources.
I was also one of them. Palestinians have tried to resist Israel nonviolently, but many people don’t know about that now. At the end of the class, I had an opportunity to talk to a Palestinian, whose name is Iyas Salim. His family was injured in Gaza in 2014. He said “Japanese can move freely from Osaka to Kyoto.
As a child ranging from age six through twelve, when someone would ask me where my family comes from, I would reply with “Mexico”. I did this not because I was ashamed of where my family comes from, but because I thought nobody knew about El Salvador or Honduras in that area. I never bothered with explaining and went with what everybody in that area was familiar with, so I thought. I was an insecure child that did not know any better. However, there were times where I was not asked about my descent from a non-Hispanic individual and the
However, most Japanese-Americans weren 't sent to Tule Lake. Most Japanese-Americans answered affirmatively to Questions 27 and 28 on the loyalty questionnaire. Why would they do this despite the clear violation of their civil rights? They did it for a few different reasons. One of them was the spread of patriotism.
Reflection Hays and Erford (2014) define the factors affecting our counselor identity as our culture, lifespan period, gender, sexual orientation, and the last but not the least our prejudicial beliefs. In the country that I have grown up, we did not have too many Asian descents living among us and the insight that we have about both Native Americans and Asian Americans were just a paragraph length of information in sociology books. I would just add a couple American movies have had some people included in the film as side characters or neighbor members. Preparing for this week’s assignment gave me a lot different perception about Asian Americans, Native Americans and multiculturally component counselors. As a multicultural counselor myself,
Perhaps it’s partly because of misinformation that has been believed for many years or that Asian-Americans “make few political demands and keep their heads down” (Bronner, 2012). Some Asian-Americans believe their parents taught them they must honor their family name and find ways to make the grades instead of causing trouble (Bronner, 2012). I do believe that Asian-Americans usually have higher values because in 18 years as a police officer I have only arrested one Asian-American and that was for DUI. It is true that many Asian-Americans are in the technical fields, but hardly any are in top management jobs and many more occupy service jobs (Williams, 2015). This model minority image of Asian-Americans has caused some problems with other minorities, but the problem is that experimental research has been done to look at the ramifications (Chao et al, 2013).
With this being said, an informed individual may be less driven to help another person due to the fact that they want to avoid a run in with the law themselves. When it comes to morality, it is not contingent upon ones religious background or the laws that govern the state or province in which they live, rather ones morality is contingent upon the guiding principles that govern said individuals life. For example, when it comes to the scenario described above, ones morals may tell them that intervening and placing themselves in harms way is not justifiable and surpasses practicability. Whereas another individuals morals may tell them to adhere to the ideal of universalizability, which means that they a lot the same action to another that they would want done onto them and thusly they would get involved. With all of these things in mind, ones morality is not strictly limited to their religion or laws but rather what they find to be permissible and
However, the resistance to follow orders was only the beginning of a new era for the Japanese’s American citizen. As it drew close to the ending of World War II, members of the Supreme Court were ruling against holding Americans citizens without having criminal charges. After the decision was made Japanese Americans made their way back into society as free citizen. However, that would come at a price because they were walking back into a society that was racist and prejudiced. Not only that but there were limited resources for the Japanese to reenter what they once called home.
