Emergence of “Asian American”
  • The term “Asian,” like the term “Black,” means different things in different places around the world.
  • In the United States, “Asian American” is primarily a political term that reflects a panethnic experience.
    • Many Asian Americans identify themselves first with the the nation of ancestry. Some do not identify with the term Asian American.

Murder of Vincent Chin
  • Michigan in the 1980s:
    • High tensions between white and Japanese auto workers.
    • On the eve of his wedding, Vincent Chin, a Chinese American, was brutally beaten and left to die. He was mistaken for a Japanese American.
    • This event resonated with groups of Asian decent around the country and is often viewed as the defining moment in Asian American political engagement.
