Voting Behavior And Political Participation, James Lai Dec 2009

Voting Behavior And Political Participation, James Lai

Ethnic Studies

Asian Americans have been labeled as the "next sleeping giant" in American politics in key geopolitical states such as California, Texas, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and Washington. 1 Much of this perception is fueled by the dramatic growth of Asian American communities in these and other states as a result of federal immigration reforms beginning in 1965.

These include voter behavior and turnout in local, state, and federal elections as recently as ...

What’S Going On In The Macomb, Wayne, And Oakland Counties; Is There A Link Between Arab American Acculturation And Perceived Prejudice?, Justin Du Mouchel

Undergraduate Honors Capstone Projects

Arab Americans are a growing segment of the U.S. population. Issues like anti-Arab prejudice are becoming more visible, but few studies have considered how the problem might be viewed by an Arab American community member. This study asks the question: does acculturation within the Arab American community have an effect on the amount of perceived prejudice the group senses? Secondary data from the Detroit Arab American Study was used to test for a relationship between perceived prejudice as measured by “American Media Bias”, and acculturation within the Arab American community as measured by “Arab Acts” and “Arab News”. Findings ...

"The Extraordinary Movement Of The Jews Of Great Britain": 1827-1831, C. S. Monaco Nov 2009

"The Extraordinary Movement Of The Jews Of Great Britain": 1827-1831, C. S. Monaco

C. S. Monaco

This article identifies a previously ignored social movement that existed in London during 1827–1831. The Jewish rights movement, as it will be called here, actually involved a coalition of Jews and Christians. During the movement’s initial phase, London Jews, led by Moses E. Levy (an activist from the United States), joined in solidarity with their oppressed brethren in Russia: their public protests against tsarist policies drew a broad response from the national and international press. This unparalleled movement influenced national political agendas and major legislative reforms, and resulted in striking changes within the Anglo-Jewish community. By utilising the ...

Between The Local And The Global: Characteristics Of The Chinese-Language Press In America, Xiao-Huang Yin

Xiao-huang Yin

The one event of the day that made him get up out of his easy chair was the [Chinese] newspaper. He looked forward to it. He opened the front door and looked for it hours before the mailman was due. The Gold Mountain News … came from San Francisco in a paper sleeve on which his name and address were neatly typed. He put on his gold-rimmed glasses and readied his smoking equipment. … He killed several hours reading the paper, scrupulously reading everything, the date on each page, the page numbers, the want ads.… —Maxine Hong Kingston, China Men (1981)
