"To make our community safe now, but we also need to educate our Children and create a new narrative about who belongs here. The thing that made me historian was an experience I had with my grandmother where I was asking her about when she moved from Maui to Honolulu during the Depression, and she stopped in mid sentence in explaining it and asked me why did I care about her story? And she said no one cares about what happened to me. And it broke my heart because I cared about her. I think that students shouldn't have to wait until college if they make it to college to find Asian American studies. And so I've been advocating for proposed Senate Bill 678 just a bill to include Asian American and Pacific Islander studies in the Connecticut state curriculum. This is building off of recent successes to include African American and Puerto Rican Latino studies in our schools. When we do that we eliminate the space for those stereotypes to grab hold of people. They make sense of the world based on a deeper historical appreciation. I really want to shift the political stakes from my history, their history to a broader sense of our history in order to create an equitable and just society. We have to do that together, and I think the schools are a way for us to practice that. Jason. Thank you very much. This is really challenging conversation, and I really appreciate the attention to it. Jason Oliver Chang is director of the Asian and Asian American Studies Institute. At the University of Connecticut. So what is happening when we look but cannot see when we see but cannot remember Professor Erika Lee, I cannot tell you how many times When I start lecturing to a class or give a public talk or speak to the media. How many times I've heard the phrase I've never Heard that before. I never knew that this happened and I have been teaching a long time at the beginning. I thought you're right.

"As they immigrated to these shores. This is one of the ways in which American racism works. Asian Americans have been identified as foreigners rather than citizens. Erika Lee is director of the Immigration History Research Center at the University of Minnesota. It's the history of the expulsion of all of Seattle's Chinese and Chinese American residents in 18 86. It's the story of how hundreds of people were intimidated and then forced under armed guard to leave their homes and businesses. Herded together and forced to board a steamship out of town in 18 86. This episode is hardly ever taught in our history books, It's almost impossible. To find any monument or recognition or plaque or any historical marker. Related to this brutal history in Seattle, a city known for its progressiveness, a city that in the early 20th century marketed itself as a gateway to the Orient. This is nothing to bash on Seattle. It's just a reflection of the violence and then a racer that exists and that continues to endure. Relationship to Asian American history. The injustice, she says, particularly marginalized women, the stereotypes in the media images that permeate American popular culture. From the 19th century up through the present either focus on the Asian Dragon Lady, the madam who runs the whorehouse or the degraded Asian female prostitute or the submissive geisha who finds fulfillment in serving typically a white male. Partner or customer, or the well meaning Vietnamese prostitute from the Vietnam War era films. Stereotypes firmly cemented, Lee says. With the expansion of the American Empire, we have had such a long term heavy presence of U. S military and Okinawa in South Korea, the Philippines and the resulting sex, trade and sex work that has exploited Asian women. It's part of that culture of that military experience of the culture of US empire. Not only did American culture fetishize Asian women here and abroad U. S policies meted out collective punishment based on ethnic stereotypes and nothing more. We have not just excluded Asian immigrants, but the very first group that we actually barred from the United States were Asian immigrant women. Because of this idea that they were either prostitutes or potential prostitutes. This is the 18 75 Page Act, which was our first federal immigration law passed in the U. S. But if we're discussing the paradox of both exploiting and punishing Asian Americans for the same supposed sins Wrap your head around this. The same immigrant group excoriated by society was later embraced as a shining example for all ethnic groups of how to successfully integrate into the dominant white economy and culture. Jason Oliver Chang is associate professor of history as well as Asian and Asian American studies at the University of Connecticut. He says that a half century ago, Asian Americans were dubiously characterized as model immigrants. When the 1965 heart seller Act was signed into law, by Lyndon B. Johnson Heart Seller Act established a new system. Governing U. S immigration by establishing a merit based approach that gave preferences to certain categories of people and eliminating the country quota numbers. And this dramatically opened up immigration to new flows of immigrants from Latin America and Asia and then became the preferred mode of immigration for a number of companies from agribusiness to high tech companies. These flows of highly skilled immigrants fueled a dominant image of who Asian Americans were in this period of rapid growth for Asian migration. There's this immigrant cohort that on one hand, is welcomed with open arms. And yet simultaneously subject to discrimination and violence. Violence, which Didn't even register in the national psyche. One of the challenging things among many with the idea of the model minority is that by recognizing discrimination, you're being targeted for violence. It disrupts a national narrative about success about civil rights progress. And it disrupts a convenient story about how Asian Americans fit into a liberal progressive society. And so in some ways, the erasure of their experiences is required to maintain that image of Asian Americans as the diligent worker as the person who won't rock the boat. Is that eraser? Is it more like the failure to connect dots? Erika Lee spoke to us about the expulsion of Seattle's Chinese residents in 18 86. There was another sort of program in the 18 seventies in L A. Can you tell me about that? In 18 71 October 24. There was a conflict between Chinese people that led to the killing of a cop and another white resident. And that led to a majority of the residents threw around 500 people to descend onto the Chinatown where they killed between 17 and 20 people. I was able to read some first person testimony and just the gruesome details behind it just demonstrated a wholesale cleansing of a neighborhood grabbing Anyone at their disposal and lynching them in the streets on the premise that they were clearing out the impurities and making Los Angeles a safe place. Just gets back to that notion of eraser or at least of malignant indifference. This is a country that kind of savers. It's massacres. We all know about the ST Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago. We know about Custer's last stand and the lynchings in the Jim Crow South. The Chinese massacre of 18 71. I'm embarrassed to say it's news to me. How does it come to pass that an entire society if I'm speaking for it? Fails to notice a crime so grave I think part of that comes from a deeply ingrained sense that Asians don't belong and that their history no matter how consequential important or Their contributions. However great they may have been are irrelevant to the understanding of the development of the United States. That master was 150 years ago. In the eighties, however, they were two other ghastly crimes. One the murder of Vincent Chin. In 1982 2 white men be chin to death a few days before his wedding Chin was Chinese, but he was blamed for the rise of Japan's auto industry at a time when America was losing manufacturing jobs. His killers essentially got away with it. They receive probation and the $3000 fine and a school shooting in Stockton, California, where all the victims were Southeast Asian refugees in 1989, a mass shooting at an elementary school in Stockton was the worst the nation had ever seen. Five Children were killed. 30 students and teachers wounded. These two events put together demonstrate that there is a sense of no consequence for practicing violence against Asians. It's really difficult to paint a detailed image of who Asian Americans are in a society which knows very little about why they're here. And so in that absence, atrocities and the attacks on Asian Americans appear random, chaotic and episodic. If part of the problem is invisibility. You have a plan, at least for your home state. What is it? That's right. We need.

In the eighties, however, they were two other ghastly crimes. One the murder of Vincent Chin. In 1982 2. White men beat Chin to death a few days before his wedding Chin was Chinese, but he was blamed for the rise of Japan's auto industry. At a time when America was losing manufacturing jobs. His killers essentially got away with it. They receive probation and a $3000 fine and a school shooting in Stockton, California were all the victims were Southeast Asian refugees. 1989, a mass shooting at an elementary school in Stockton was the worst the nation had ever seen. Five Children were killed 30 students and teachers wounded these two events put together demonstrate that there is a sense of no consequence for practicing violence against Asians. It's really difficult to paint a detailed image of who Asian Americans are in a society which knows very little about why they're here.

"To make our community safe now, but we also need to educate our Children and create a new narrative about who belongs here. The thing that made me a historian was an experience I had with my grandmother where I was asking her about when she moved from Maui to Honolulu during the Depression, and she stopped in mid sentence in explaining it and asked me why did I care about her story? And she said no one cares about what happened to me. And it broke my heart because I cared about her. I think that students shouldn't have to wait until college if they make it to college to find Asian American studies. And so I've been advocating for proposed Senate Bill 678 just a bill to include Asian American and Pacific Islander studies in the Connecticut state curriculum. This is building off of recent successes to include African American and Puerto Rican Latino studies in our schools. When we do that we eliminate the space for those stereotypes to grab hold of people. Um they make sense of the world based on a deeper historical appreciation. But I really want to shift the political stakes from my history, their history to a broader sense of our history in order to create an equitable and just society. We have to do that together, and I think the schools are a way for us to practice that. Jason. Thank you very much. This is really challenging conversation, and I really appreciate the attention to it. Jason Oliver Chang is director of the Asian and Asian American Studies Institute. At the University of Connecticut. So what is happening when we look but cannot see when we see but cannot remember Professor Erika Lee, I cannot tell you how many times When I start lecturing to a class or give a public talk or speak to the media. How many times I've heard the phrase I've never Heard that before? I never knew that this happened. And I have been teaching a long time at the beginning. I thought you're right. You know, I had never heard this until recently, either until I had started studying it, But now I'm angry,.

"Headlines to the past 140 years in American history of committing violence against Asians almost as soon as they immigrated to these shores. This is one of the ways in which American racism works. Asian Americans have been identified as foreigners rather than citizens. Erika Lee is director of the Immigration History Research Center at the University of Minnesota. It's the history of the expulsion of all of Seattle's Chinese and Chinese American residents in 18 86. It's the story of how hundreds of people were intimidated and then forced under armed guard to leave their homes and businesses. Herded together and forced to board a steamship out of town in 18 86. This episode is hardly ever taught. In our history books, it's almost impossible to find any monument or recognition or plaque or any historical marker. Related to this brutal history in Seattle, a city known for its progressiveness, a city that in the early 20th century. Marketed itself as a gateway to the Orient. This is nothing to bash on Seattle. It's just a reflection of the violence and then a racer. That exists then that continues to endure in relationship to Asian American history. The injustice, she says, particularly marginalized women, the stereotypes in the media images that permeate American popular culture. From the 19th century up through the present either focus on the Asian Dragon Lady, The madam who runs the whorehouse or The degraded Asian female prostitute or the submissive geisha who finds fulfillment in serving typically a white male. Partner or customer, or the well meaning Vietnamese prostitute from the Vietnam War era films. The stereotypes firmly cemented, Lee says. With the expansion of the American Empire, we have had such a long term heavy presence of U. S military and Okinawa and South Korea, the Philippines and the resulting sex, trade and sex work that has exploited Asian women. It's part of that culture of that. Military experience of the culture of US empire. Not only did American culture fetishize Asian women here and abroad U. S policies made it out collective punishment based on Ethnic stereotypes and nothing more. We have not just Excluded Asian immigrants. But the very first group that we actually barred from the United States were Asian immigrant women because of this idea that they were either Prostitutes or potential prostitutes. This is the 18 75 Page Act, which was our first federal immigration law passed in the U. S. But if we're discussing the paradox of both exploiting and punishing Asian Americans for the same supposed sins Wrap your head around this. The same immigrant group excoriated by society was later embraced as a shining example for all ethnic groups of how to successfully integrate into the dominant white economy and culture. Jason Oliver Chang is associate professor of history as well as Asian and Asian American studies at the University of Connecticut. He says that a half century ago, Asian Americans were dubiously characterized as model immigrants. When the 1965 heart seller Act was signed into law by Lyndon B. Johnson, the heart seller act established a new system. Governing U. S immigration by establishing a merit based approach that gave preferences to certain categories of people and eliminating the country quota numbers. And this dramatically opened up immigration to new flows of immigrants from Latin America and Asia and then became the preferred mode of immigration for a number of companies from agribusiness to high tech companies. These flows of highly skilled immigrants fueled a dominant image of who Asian Americans were in this period of rapid growth for Asian migration. There's this immigrant cohort that on one hand, is welcomed with open arms. And yet simultaneously subject to discrimination and violence. Violence, which Didn't even register in the national psyche. One of the challenging things among many with the idea of the model minority is that by recognizing discrimination, you're being targeted for violence. It disrupts a national narrative about success about civil rights progress. And it disrupts a convenient story about how Asian Americans fit into a liberal progressive society. And so in some ways, the erasure of their experiences is required to maintain that image of Asian Americans as the diligent worker as the person who won't rock the boat. Is that a racialism or like the failure to connect dots? Erika Lee spoke to us about the expulsion of Seattle's Chinese residents in 18 86. There was another sort of program in the 18 seventies in L A. Can you tell me about that? In 18 71 October 24. There was a conflict between Chinese people that led to the killing of a cop and another white resident. And that led to a majority of the residents around 500 people to descend onto the Chinatown where they killed between 17 and 20 people. I was able to read some first person testimony and just the gruesome details behind it just demonstrated a wholesale cleansing of a neighborhood grabbing Anyone at their disposal and lynching them in the streets on the premise that they were clearing out the impurities and making Los Angeles a safe place. Just gets back to that notion of eraser or at least of malignant indifference. This is a country that kind of savers. It's massacres. We all know about the ST Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago.

Fails to notice a crime so grave I think part of that comes from a deeply ingrained sense that Asians don't belong and that their history no matter how consequential important or Their contributions. However great they may have then are irrelevant to the understanding of the development of the United States. That massacre was 150 years ago. In the eighties, however, they were two other ghastly crimes. One the murder of Vincent Chin. In 1982 2 white men be chin to death a few days before his wedding Chin was Chinese, but he was blamed for the rise of Japan's auto industry. At a time when America was losing manufacturing jobs. His killers essentially got away with it. They receive probation and the $3000 fine, and a school shooting in Stockton, California were all the victims were Southeast Asian refugees. 1989, a mass shooting at an elementary school in Stockton was the worst the nation had ever seen. Five Children were killed 30 students and teachers wounded these two events put together demonstrate that there is a sense of no consequence for practicing violence against Asians.

California we're all victims were southeast asian refugees in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. A mass shooting at an elementary school in stockton was the worst. The nation had ever seen five. Children were killed. Thirty students and teachers wounded these two events together. Demonstrate that there is a sense of no consequence for practicing violence against asians.

We need to make our community safe now but we also need to educate our children and create a new narrative about who belongs here. The thing that made me a historian was an experience.

Chang is director of the asian and asian american studies institute at the university of connecticut. So what is happening when we look but cannot see when we see but cannot remember professor. Eric lee i cannot tell you how many times when i start lecturing to a class or give public. Talk or speak to the media. How many times. I've heard the phrase. I've never heard that before. I never knew that this happened. And i've been teaching a long time at the beginning. I thought you're right. I had never heard this until recently. Either until i had started setting it but now i'm angry frustrated. There are so many books so many documentaries so many scholars and writers who write about and center the history of asian pacific americans including these horrific histories of violence and discrimination. And so i'm left to wonder why this history of violence is not being paid attention to is not being taught and why we have to re educate over and over again time and time again every time something like this happens because it does happen it has happened and it's going to continue to happen. Unfortunately coming up the green lantern theory of the american presidency. This is on the media. I'm alex you'll host of the read back from barons. It's been an extraordinary year for stock markets particularly for companies going public. Ipo sword and they show no sign of slowing down but the boom didn't come out of the blue and there was plenty of pain on the road to ipo success. So how do you put a price on innovation. This season on the reebok. We'll find out we're winding back. The clock on a decade of ipo's from dern and facebook to uber and airbnb. The read back is available. Wherever you get podcasts This is on the media. I'm bob garfield and i'm birth gladstone. Last weekend the biden administration began distributing the fruits of the american rescue plan. Its first major win in congress. Let me tell you what. We're talking about for a typical family of four with two young children. each family member. They're going to get one of those fourteen hundred dollar stimulus checks gonna total do about fifty six hundred dollars then on top of that. They're getting the an additional child tax credit for twenty six hundred dollars for two of those kids and for a total. Listen to this. Eighty two hundred dollars for that family news. The most significant piece of legislation passed four working families in many many decades. It isn't historic bill. Six billion dollars for the restaurant industry airlines get another fifteen billion dollars. They're seven point two five billion to expand the payroll protection program. One point seven billion for amtrak easier rules for the live entertainment venues to access their eight but amidst this c- of stimulus was one glaring absence one of biden's core campaign promises one thing. Progressives are deeply disappointed by the absence of the fifteen dollar minimum wage from the american rescue plan it was taken out by the senate parliamentarian and the white house didn't fight that after a handful of moderate democrats shut down the minimum wage hike some progressive journalists blamed biden for not fighting tooth. And now i mean really really trying to get it in the bill. This belief that a president's legislative shortcomings so the product of a lack of will is what some media critics. Call the green lantern theory of the presidency the green lantern corps for those unfamiliar with the dc comics.

What you have done in kind of uncovering the history of Chinese in Mexico. Is really in many ways. I think earth-shattering. Wow, I really feel that way. So I gotta ask you where does it come? From was it that you as a kid, we're going to Mexico? What is it that made you say I want to study the Chinese in Mexico? Yeah. After my first year at Berkeley's ethnic studies program. I encountered some articles about the Chinese migrating between US and Mexico. And I thought to myself how can I have spent ten years of my life studying the border and not known anything about this? Then I started reflecting as oh, yeah. I saw like Chinese restaurants in Nogales. And I remember meeting chains Mexican doctor who ran a free clinic in Tijuana. And I was like oh there there. I just didn't think to ask why? Or what their experiences were like, it's almost like you too. Yeah. You to body into the notion of what Mexican national culture and identity, absolutely.
