The article The Sexual Bonds of Racial Stardom explains how Asian American women in Hollywood have been portrayed as scandalous women. From being thought of as prostitutes to being dark and evil people with an ulterior motive, these stereotypes don't really hold true outside of the silver screen. In our society today, Asian American women are very respectful, kind people that are intertwined into our everyday culture here in Orange County.
The article states, "You know, because Suzie Wong was a prostitute a lot of Americans got the wrong idea and they thought that all Asian women were prostitutes" (58). This clearly is implying that Americans think that Asian American women are a sex object. However, I see it as the complete opposite around the Fullerton Campus. Sure, some are more outgoing and social than others, but the vast majority of Asian American woman that I have observed are generally more quiet and reserved. On top of that, they do not really seem to wear any revealing clothing or do anything that seems provocative. That being the case, this specific stereotype does not seem to hold any water.
The article also mentions the 'dragon lady' and how she asserts herself to get back at white men. "The dragon lady uses her "Oriental" femininity, associated with seduction and danger, to trap white men" (59). While this is used far too often in Hollywood films, this stereotype also does not exist in our society. No women are looking to 'trap' another man with the thrills of sex and danger, let alone Asian American women specifically. Especially around the Fullerton campus, that is most likely the last thing on anyone's mind. They are there to study, go to classes, and once those end, maybe go out to a party on the weekend or mess around with friends just doing stupid stuff in general.
All in all, these stereotypes about Asian American women just simply do not…...

But i can’t get it, why there is a huge universe, even though we are not using a small portion it, if there is no one else except us, and then who made those, for whom, why? Also, if someone made it, then where s he, is he the god, or it’s the spirit, or its nothing a natural rule blinded by secret power.

Asian American

...Why Asian Americans are facing unfair treatment from U.S society? Xuchen Cheng The Ohio State University Why Asian Americans are facing unfair treatment from U.S society? The term, hyphenated American, is initially used to disparage people who came from a foreign region but were born in America. Asian Americans, which occupy about 4.8% of US population (Wikipedia), are often defined as those Americans who emigrated from Far East, such as China, India. In recent years, it has become common to see Asian American typically as technicians in U.S advertisements and this trend leads to a controversy of Asian American’s stereotype and portray among U.S society. It is not fair to Asian American of being portrayed as a limited and singular cliché for such highly diverse group. In this case, Asian Americans face an unfair judgment from their “hyphen” that should certainly be removed. The more appearance of Asian Americans in visual culture can be a double-edged sword, indicating the consumption and repercussions among U.S society. On the one hand, it’s encouraging to see Asian American faces in the mainstream media being associated with positive traits — intellectual, well-educated, knowledgeable, etc. (P.Farhi, 2011, p14). For example, in Verizon’s 2011 commercial, Belt of Technology, a kid walked in a Verizon store and showed off his amazing hardware, such as PSP, E-reader, and his smirk vanished after the salesman pulled out a smartphone with more than 200,000 apps......

Asian Crisis

...Asian Crisis • What happened and when did it happen? Asian Crisis that hit pacific Asian in middle 1997, it liked a big earthquake suddenly hit Southern Asia. In Thailand, the July 2, 1997 when it currency had to devalue, the baht, about 20% against the US dollar, as a result of intense pressure in the foreign exchange market. Not only currency speculators but also many Thai residents were trying to sell the baht and buy the US dollar, causing and worsening capital flight out of the country, as the Thai government was running out of its foreign reserves and losing market confidence in maintaining the currency value and financial stability. The interest rates were shot up, as the outflow of short-term capital intensified. Then, the previously inflated stock and real estate markets collapsed and that has led to Thailand's worst recession in the postwar period with sharply rising unemployment and business failures, and the exports cheaper, pressuring other currencies to follow suit. Once the crisis hit Thailand, it has quickly spread to Indonesia. it's rupiah came under vicious attack and had to be devalued by about 90% over the period of just a few months. Interest rates were rising sharply, as capital flight from Indonesia was accelerating a complete collapse in the financial as well as the political system in that country. The Asian Crisis also has brought down South Korea, just like Indonesia and Thailand, has gone almost bankrupt as a nation and is......

Asian Tigers

...The “Asian Tigers” arrival into the world economy has been extraordinary. Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand have experienced dramatic changes over the past 20 years. Their economies have fundamentally changed from traditional agriculturally based societies to rapidly growing newly industrialized nations. Their incredible rates of growth were accompanied by significant structural changes. While most of the change has been positive, from time to time these nations have been rocked by economic “growing pains.” The high-growth economies of Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. The four Asian tigers consistently maintained high levels of economic growth since the 1960s, fueled by exports and rapid industrialization, which enabled these economies to join the ranks of the world's richest nations. Hong Kong and Singapore are among the biggest financial centers worldwide, while South Korea and Taiwan are important hubs of global manufacturing in automobile/electronic components and information technology, respectively. The tigers experienced decades of supercharged growth based largely on industrial policies supporting exports to rich, industrialized nations. Common characteristics of the tigers included heavy government investment in education, non-democratic and relatively authoritarian political systems during the early years of development, high levels of U.S. bond holdings, and high public and private savings rates.

Asian Culture

...one thing that many people can agree with, is the food. As for me, that's one of my favorite things about being Haitian-Dominican decent as I get to eat the amazing food. But another culture who's food is a big part of their being, are Asians and their style of cooking and what they eat and what they make, and etc. So I thought, why not visit or get in depth with another culture whose food is a huge part of their being. And for this paper, I've decided to get into Asian food and how it differs from my culture as well as the importance it plays in their culture. To continue, as I began to think of where I can go to try real Asian food to really speak on for this essay, I remembered about my neighbor. My neighbor whom is of Chinese descent owns restaurant called 'Asia Town'. When I approached him about wanting to learn about different Asian foods and taste them, he invited me for a free meal at his restaurant to try some of his popular dishes. He even explained to me that a lot of his food is cooked by himself and though he gets help from his mother, he makes sure to keep the 'Asian style' in his food. A lot of popular buffets make their food 'mainstream' according to him and he mentioned to me, his restaurant was the best place to try real Asian food. Furthermore, as I entered his restaurant on September 12th and there wasn’t too many people in the restaurant and therefore he wanted to give me a ‘taste’ of his culture’s cuisine. He explained to me that there are......

Asian Americans

...Jose Cruz Asian-Americans Soc/262-Contemporary American Society Nantrece Carraby August 10, 2015 Asian Americans According to the United States Census Bureau the definition of Asians refers to those people of origins of any original peoples of Southeast Asia, Far East, and or the Indian subcontinent. Asian Americans cover four point eight percent of the United States population. Asian Americans tend to have the highest educational accomplishments and income compared to other races. Along with other races and ethnicities Asian Americans have a remarkable thorough history. Analysis Cultural value of Asians towards education Educational goals from Asian American parents play a vast role in their children’s occupational outcomes. Many Asian American parents share common interest in educational goals for their children due to similar cultural backgrounds in Confucian ideology. Confucius taught that everyone that is human possessed the same potentials, and that education was the corrective means to restrain from any tendencies that will stray from ethical behaviors. Asian parents tend to spend much more time with their children to drive them harder, sometimes even at the cost of their personal time and ambitions of the parents themselves. Their parents view their children as trees that need trimming as they get older. Many people believe that Asian parents are dominating but, parents according to Confucius ideology are to give their children all the......

The Asian History

...end commerce was conducted by sea with Southeast Asia and by land routes crossing Central Asia. The Central Asian Connection Central Asia, a vast expanse to China's north and west where the climate was too dry for farming (Map 2), was home mainly to pastoral nomads who grazed herds on its plateaus and plains. Skilled on horseback, the nomads occasionally attacked Chinese settlements to carry off goods and supplies, but they also spread commerce and useful knowledge. Some nomads, for example, exchanged their Central Asian nomads connect China with other cultures Nomads and Chinese adopt horse riding and crossbows from each other Iron tools and weapons spread to China, enhancing farming and warfare hides, wool, and horses for Chinese silk, pottery, metalware, and wood products and then traded these items with other societies across Central Asia. Over time, connections with the nomads, and through them with other Eurasian societies, had major impacts on China. Nomadic connections, for example, transformed Chinese warfare in the Eastern Zhou era. From the nomads Chinese armies adopted horseback riding, replacing chario- teers with mounted riders who moved and maneuvered more quickly. The nomads in turn began using the crossbow, a Chinese invention that could kill with precision from a distance. Even more momentous was ironworking, a West Asian innovation that spread through Central Asia to China in this era. Since iron was far more abundant than......

Asian Philosophy

...Bertina Markindi 639301 Dr. J oyigo PHL 4220A Asian Philosophy Why would I encourage a fellow student to take Asian philosophy course 2/11/2016 Introduction The quest for truth is elusive in modern society because we are accustomed to using science to show us that something is true. Not everything can be proven by science, since it requires significant material evidence to be a matter of fact. Therefore many issues are left out. Philosophy comes in to take the challenging topics, like the meaning of life and existence. It explores them in ways science is incapable of doing, since they yield no material evidence, and gives us knowledge that is even more important than that of gravity. After all if we don't know why we are here, then why are we here? Therefore, I would encourage a fellow student to take this course. Reasons why I would encourage a fellow student to take this course: * Primarily, to avoid the mistake of thinking that “If i don’t know it, it must not be important.” The study of human thought is incomplete and incoherent without the valuable contributions from the East * Philosophy seeks not simply knowledge, but deep understanding and wisdom. Philosophy is an activity people undertake when they seek to understand themselves, the world they lie in, and the relations to the world and each other.  Those who study philosophy are engaged in asking, answering, evaluating, and reasoning about some of life’s most......

Asian Business

...about Asian business culture. The United States is now considering how business leaders view the role of the firm in their economy. Foreign firms need to contemplate carefully when partnering or buying a private Asian firm whether highly valued products are being created or not. Japanese firms normally assume a more family like strive and focus first and foremost to make sure their employees are taken care of, unlike in China. Japanese firms provide benefits to employees like stable employment and good livelihood. The similarity between the two is that the purpose of Japanese and Chinese firms is not solely to maximize shareholder value. Businesses in southern Korea resemble European ones more than the companies in China and Japan. I have learned that the United States is more ignorant than I thought they were when it comes to cracking Asian business culture. I also learned that there are maxims about how to succeed in Asia everywhere. There also was a high failure rate of the United States companies in Asia that I was not aware about as well. I thought that U.S. businesses were doing successfully in Asia but that is not the case. I learned that General Motors is doing well in China. I finally learned that most of China’s new class of millionaires comes from profitable family owned businesses. If you are going to do business in Asia, then I recommend that you research on education about Asian business culture. I also recommend that a person try to make sense of Asian......
