Choose one specific variant of anti-Asian racism that groups experienced (for example, political, social, or economic discrimination) and examine how such forms of discrimination were implemented against different Asian groups and the impact that those had on the communities. What personally strikes you as interesting or surprising about that form of racism, and why?
Analyze the underlying roots of anti-Asian racism. What were the major social, economic, or political factors that contributed to those sentiments in that period of history? Moreover, can you draw parallels with some of the experiences of immigrants then and those today?
How was each group eventually excluded from American society? How did measures to end Asian immigration compare and contrast with each group? It is important to note that because groups arrived at different times, not all experienced the exact same legislative barriers. What bigger conclusions do you think you can draw about those experiences?
