There is no such thing as an Asian-American. To suppose that there is requires that you lump together Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Cambodian, Thai, Taiwanese, Philippine, and a dozen other ethnicities, and pretend that they are one homogeneous group.

Further, to most "Americans," they ARE one homogeneous group. When I point out to my wife that a Korean is portraying a Chinese person, or a Japanese person is portraying a Vietnamese, she looks at me like I'm crazy. "What's the difference?"

But the ethnicities are all different, as are the cultures and in most cases, the main modes of immigration, acculturation, and assimilation. Thus, there is no "typical" story for an Asian family or sub-community.

Every family story is different. Chinese railroad workers. Korean Grocers. Indian motel owners. Indian academics and professionals. Chinese laundry owners and restauranteurs. Vietnamese fishermen. Philippine nurses. Chinese academics and doctors.

Which one is "typical Asian"?
