Immigration from China• Introduction: (1) they are the first group we will pass an immigration law against. (2)They are the only group that we actually pass a law only against them- chinese exclusion law. (3) Unassimilatable but rise up in hierarchy. In cartoon they show them just as they get off the boat.• Views of Chinese Americans• Chinao Advanced Nation Economically- they can support their people  Technologically- still known as this today. They have things way before other Eurpoeans. We know this because of their population. Up until 1800 they never had any problems with their populationo Cosmopolitan China opened the doors to western expansion. Started with Marco Polo and the west road. Have always been part of the worldo Divisions within China- different culturals religions etc Naturally divided- Historically they have always been divided by Natural divisions like rivers mountains etc. They are different because of these divisions Cultural Divisions- they have divided themselves into provinces. Politically made these divisions• Regions- provinces. Very diverseo The Chinese Family- they hold two things very differently then we do in America: (1) Age- American loves young. China says older you are the better, closer to a higher power. (2) Individualism- in America we revolve around what “I” want. In China there is no such thing as “me” there is family. Institutions in china- family is #1 government is #2 Patriarchy- male dominated. Clans- very large families. You live in a compound with all of your family. They are all linked to one another. Eldest Male- runs the family. The eldest male chooses who you marry, chooses what job you have, whether you immigrate or not• Chinese in China- o “Guadong” or Canton Province- came in first wave. They hold the city of hongkong today They are merchants, fisherman, businessmen, urban workers, fireworks(explosivses) They are NOT argricultural workerso City- Toishan/Taishan- most come from this city• Immigration to the United States- Push factorso Government- first thing that goes wrong. At this time is controlled by an emperor Qing Dynasty• Pronounced Ching• Been around for 100s of years• The people start not liking what the emperors are doing. Since China is so divided people stop paying attention and live their own way. Emperors do not like this. He starts raising taxes to pay for an army to kill them(chinese) Taipei and Boxer rebellions- these are the heads of the clan going against the emperor. o Overpopulation- up until the 1800s China has not had an overpopulation problem Meaning- the government cannot support its people; not enough jobs, food.o Imperialism- Europeans decide they want to come and take over China(economy-because it makes a lot of money) Opium Wars- people want opium(main import)- very expensive drug• Opium is making so much money so they come in to take it. They also fight with everyone for the best parts.• Europeans take over most of the jobs. (this can be linked back to the irish, when the british took their land)o This creates an unemployment problem.• Europeans also bring over their culture. This makes the eldest male not as important. Traditional chinese culture starts to disappear.o The chinese who immigrated to America actually kept their culture better in America than they would if they stayed in china Did better in US than in Chinao Weather- there are a serious of flooding or drought. This ruins their money making crops like silk and tea Tsunami- a shipping area called Toishan is destroyed• This becomes a huge deal because of loss for people• They cant grow rice so they start starving. They are also pooro War and Rebellion Interior war- eldest male vs emperor There is also a war against Russian and Japanese• 20 million die from wars- this helps overpopulationo **Most of chinese do not go to US- bc british are mean. They go to places like Austrailia• Pull Factors for the Chineseo 1st- Gold Gum Saan-• “gold mountain”- this is what Chinese called USo They believed that when they went to US it would be land filled with gold.o Also gold is in the interior of California- which is not where they immediately will arrive• Chinese thought this would be an easy way to make moneyo Later- Work There’s no other group that will be competing with Chinese for jobs• First Impressions:o Stereotypes of the Californian WASPs and Chinese- Yosemite Sam and Chang-with Queue There are hardly any women in California at this time. They are all white Yosemite Sam- typical California- he is in California for gold to be a rancher/cowboy; he is single and white• When he hunts he hunts with knife; he eats with that same knife• He is protestant, an upbringing of Christianity• Average height- 5’8; he is hefty and muscular Chand- with Queue• He is wearing traditional clothing- made of silk; capri with white silk stockings with colorful silk slippers• There is no facial hair; Average height- 4’8• He looks like a girl• Religion- he does not practice Christian religion; he walks into a temple practices Buddhism. • He eats tofu/ soy beans/ little meat/fish.- they use chopstickso They do not eat cow- which whites eat Chinese are un-assimilatable• Chinese Immigration to the USo Money?- they have a little bit of money- enough to get buy which is goodo Return migration- the Chinese will not stay in US They come over because eldest male comes over to make money; once all push factors go away, they will return to US- they choose the best candidate:male, single• Another reason why they do not assimilate You will stay for thirty years. But you cannot be controlled in America- so they will return about every 5 years• When you return you will find your wife; get married, have kids; return back to US; repeat- every 5 years you are being reintroduced to your culture Return migration- takes 3-5 months on boat- so they are not in US long- this creates a bad reputation in America Bachelor Society• Most of immigration is male. They are bachelors because they either are single or do not bring their family/wife.• Whites fear that Chinese will try to marry white womeno Numbers- bad 300,000 by 1882- low number but they all settle together 1/10 of CA population• CA is not a very populated area and when the Chinese all settle in CA they make up a lot of CA
