Please explain the theory of segmented assimilation, as this appears in Professor Min Zhou's article about Asian and other immigrants to the United States after 1965. - Segmented Assimilation is a way of explaining how immigrants adapt to the U.S. right after they come by living in areas of similar ethnicity which in turn allows them to practice their same culture and beliefs - Immigrants tended to live in ethnic Chinatowns in order to retain their culture and help them gradually become accepted into the host society. They choose to retain their culture while also seeking a higher education and resources that are not normally available to them in their home countries. - Is to better adapt to their new surroundings, with a base of comfort ability.
