After studying Asian Americans as one of the minorities in the United States, I find it fascinating to know that they are considered and become the “model minorities” of this country. I admit that I have little knowledge of what they have been through since they came here more than a hundred years ago. The Chinese were pulled to the West Coast of the United States because of the Gold Rush in 1849, but this country also banned the Chinese immigration after WWII. The Japanese Americans on the other hand were put in the relocation camps during WWII after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941. The Japanese Americans lost everything they had worked for. It is just unbelievable to know that after all of these experiences, these people as well as other groups in Asia become the model minority of this country. Although the issue of racial discrimination will always continue, this country also acknowledges the values of all races outside the dominant race. Asian Americans may continue to be a minority race, but they will also continue to enjoy what this country offers to everybody.
