Filipino Americas - Filipino Americans      America is considered a melting pot of different ethnic groups. By today’s standard, “American culture” is the result of a variety of races integrating their own cultural beliefs into American society. Throughout the years, the United States has seen a massive increase of people migrating from Asian countries; “they make up 3.6 percent of the U.S. population, a 199 percent increase from 1980 when they constituted only 1.5 percent of the population” (Ng).

Filipino Magic And Blood - When I was five, I watched as a Filipino man split his thumb in half lengthwise and move the tip back and fourth. This was my first experience with Magic.

Filipino Cinema’s Hope for Change - Sometimes you really have to ask yourself; is the change worth the price. Contemporary Filipino cinema had been asking that very question for the past few years. Realistic social dramas such as Manila Skies, The Arrival and The Mountain Thief, all portray individuals in varying states of stagnation, longing for a way out. We are told to leave our hometowns and seek our fortunes where is grass is greener. Homegrown innocence is often outmatched by urban competition. Although these films are nowhere near as graphic as the ones by fellow countryman, Brillante Mendoza, the overall effect of how reality hits the characters is startling....   [tags: Film Review] 853 words

The Psychological Effects of Sexual Maltreatment On Filipino Comfort Women - Introduction Any disparity in power makes physical and sexual maltreatment more probable.

Sexual maltreatment, in the form of rape, inflicted on the Filipino comfort women during the war are considered as an offense of crime against humanity. However, it remained unreported and unrecognized years after the war. Rape is identified as criminal sexual intercourse without the consent of the victim.

Subjugation of Filipino-Americans to Hip-Hop/Rap and R&B and Their Role as Performers - In its current state, the perceptions of Asian Americans in mainstream media show little progress over their perceptions of the past. From the derogatory remarks made about the Chinese when they first migrated from China in the 1820s to the offensive, yet subtle, comments made about the Asian minorities in the United States even to this day, there is a blatant correlation to why these thoughts are still present in this society. Although these have been issues that have lasted for as long as the first migrations from these foreigners began, one person cannot deny that there are certain perspectives that invoke the beliefs of certain stereotypes on others who do not share the same background, either socially or ethnically....   [tags: Music]

Why Should Ilokano Language Courses Be Offered in Hawai‘i Public Schools? - Some of the first Filipinos to come to Hawai‘i were the sakadas or contract laborers who arrived in 1906 to work on the sugar plantations. Since then, Filipinos became the state’s fastest growing ethnic minority. The primary reasons for the Filipinos’ rapid growth are “continuous immigration from the Philippines and high birth rates in the Filipino community.” Annually, about 3,500 immigrants come to Hawai‘i from the Philippines, most of whom are children (“A Brief History”).

There was very little in a way of immediate economic interest to make our country of special concern to Americans by the time the Spanish-American War brought Commodore George Dewey's fleet to Manila Harbor to do battle with the Spanish flotilla on the night of April 30 and the morning of May 1, 1898.2 The Spanish-American War of 1898 provided the opportunity for Filipinos to get rid themselves of Spanish rule....   [tags: Papers] 837 words
