Multicultural Matrix and Analysis SOC/315 Version 4 2 Part I: Matrix What is the group’s history in the United States? What is the group’s population in the United States? What are some attitudes and customs people of this group may practice? What is something you admire about this group’s people, lifestyle, or society? 1. Chinese and Japanese Americans Chinese Americans immigrated to the United States to find themselves mostly part of tourism. The Japanese Americans dealt with discrimination and involuntary imprisonment during the end of the World War II. Both the Chinese and Japanese are strong learners and contribute a great deal to the economy of the United States. Chinese Americans make up about 1% of the United States population. On the United States census the question asked is Asian, so I could not find how many Japanese are in the US. The total Asian population is just under 8% and that is made up from Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese and other Asian. Both the Chinese and Japanese Americans are very respectful of their ancestry and heritage. Modern culture has so many inter marriages had the youth and the elders of these two cultures at odds. A majority of Japanese and Chinese are Buddhist and very peaceful people. Chinese celebrate the Chinese New Year, but only figuratively. For the Japanese one of the largest celebrates in the United States is the Obon festival in July or August, to celebrate their ancestors and families with folk dance and food. I admire how accepting the Chinese and Japanese Americans are. I have found this is the most accepting group of others that I have studied. I also find their respect of others and the importance of education very admirable.
