The Asian American Community is one of the largest growing communities among that of the diverse groups coming to America. There have been so many groups of Asian Americans flocking to the United States. One the Asian American Community was build up large enough, they started congregating talking about the issues that most affected their everyday lives.
Although Asian Americans only make up 5% of the United States population, the fact that that number has doubled over the last decade means that it is one of the most rapidly growing racial/ethnic groups.
Although the Asian American community has received a lot of attention in the past decade, it still remains one of the most understood racial/ethnic groups.
The Asian American community is comprised of a population living in the United States who self-identify as having Asian ancestry, but currently reside (legally or illegally) in the United States.
It is important to not generalize the Asian American Community as all having one identity. Asian Americans are comprised of all different cultures coming from more than one region of Asia.
With being an Asian American comes a lot of stereotypes that won't go away. One of these stereotypes that persist is that all Asian Americans are the same. There is an overall ignorance of generalizing the entire Asian American community to be of one Asian country, which is very not true. In fact each region of Asia is completely distinct from one another. More often you will see all Asian Americans being generalized as the same.
Another of the stereotypes that are pinned to being Asian American Community is that all Asian Americans are foreigners.
True, more than half of the Asians in the United States were born outside the United States, but instead of making an effort to find out the true, they just assume. And although more than half of Asian Americans are born outside the United States, many are actually fourth or fifth generation Asian Americans who have been here longer than you may think.
Asian Americans continue to struggle to become more accepted in the United States. They have made headway in creating all of the same organizations that are available to other United States citizens. The Asian American Community as a whole is responsible for creating an alliance of different groups to represent themselves as well as correct any injustice or stereotypes that persist within their culture.
They have many different venues in which they can put themselves out there to be more readily accessible to correct any wrongs or set the record straight.
The Asian American Community is a rapidly changing way in which Americans can become more knowledgeable and more concerned with the needs and wants of your fellow American. The Asian American Community is now grouping together to become a more prominent group of people, and they are a strong enough community to do so.
The Asian American community is just as diverse as America is. There are so many different cultures that make up the Asian American community, just like America is made up of a lot of different cultures.
Asian Americans have long been stereotyped, but now is the time to correct the wrong and make amends, we are all Americans and we all want the same thing. We all want to be born free and have the opportunity to move your way up the social ladder, and the United States is just the venue that will provide the Asian American Community with this opportunity.
