Page 1 Expansion of the truth: Donald Duck and his journey to discover his heritage Frank Chin’s character, Donald Duk is a racially pessimistic Chinese-American that is ashamed of his culture and everything he assumes it stands for. Through surrealistic tactics, Donald Duk tries to justify his anti Chinese- American views and shy away from learning anything about his culture and the way they helped shape America. Donald however, with the help of his curious American friend Arnold does take a journey of discovery about his culture. Frank Chins didactic style of writing referencing characters from different ethnic backgrounds serves to educate Donald as well as others about the Chinese people’s role in the growth of the American society as it relates to Donald in his present day self induced dilemma. This gives Donald an avenue to travel along which eventually leads to him being proud of and openly acknowledging his pride for his heritage, family and community.
Teresa Mastracchio 12/2/12 DBQ Essay Sullivan During 1644-1912 the Quing Dynasty saw European countries such as Great Britain as inferior to them and opposed no threat in their military or products. The Chinese saw European citizens to be spoiled by the government because of all the privileges such as jobs, tax breaks etc given to them. Many Westerns had different views on China. The Taiping Rebellion was caused my social unhappiness and foreign intrusion because of the Treat of Nanking. This led to the worlds bloodiest civil war in China.
In document 4, Han Yu mocks Buddhism by calling it a “cult” and criticizes its absence from Confucian texts by stating “…barbarian peoples spread (it) to China. It did not exist here in ancient times”. In this manner, he makes the teachings of Buddhism appear false while making Confucian teachings appear true. Although Han Yu’s position in the court should render his views standard, it remains obvious that the commoners who march, as well as the Emperor who oversees the march, all feel otherwise. In document 6, Emperor Wu builds on Yu’s criticism of Buddhism as being uncustomary and lowly by saying “Buddhism has …spread like a luxuriant vine until it has poisoned the customs of our nation”.
He preferred a small scale of military. However, since today the position and the possession of a good leader are always desired by many covetous men, I suppose that a smart leader today should concern war and the preparation thereof, as Machiavelli advised. Through war, he can consolidate his power, and protect his people as well as his territory. Last year, Chinese government declared to take back one of two Vietnamese famous islands, called Hoang Sa, which belonged to Vietnam for many centuries. Being afraid of inferior if a fight really happened, the Vietnam Communist Government hopelessly gave its island up to China.
PEOPLE LIKE US David Brooks, in his short essay “People Like Us”, writes about the implications in pursuing diversity. Brooks debunks the myth how Americans believe in diversity.

Bissoondath and Staples provide different examples of racism. Bissoondath provides examples from other people while Staples provides examples of what has happened to him in his life. Bissoondath provides a second hand story of something he witnessed. “I think of the mover, a friendly man, who said, “I’m not racist, but the Chinese are the worst drivers on the road.” He was convinced that this was so because the shape of their eyes, as far as he could surmise, denied them peripheral vision” (Bissoondath 1). People are often judged based on their appearance.
This proves to show that exchanges between two different cultures often prove to be misunderstood even though instructions are provided. As the delegation extended kinship to Fillmore in their gift, the President failed to understand the offering’s true meaning. It seemed a bit rude how Fillmore did not smoke the cigarette or chew the cornmeal as requested in the instructions, because it looked as though he didn’t understand nor appreciate the gift given by the Tesuque delegation. Their offering said “We want to be your brothers,” and the President unknowingly denied their invitation. The fact that the American government did not always protect the interests or lives of Native Americans
These reasons include Buddha did not speak the Chinese language and he wore clothes of a different fashion. Buddha does not follow the laws of dress of the Chinese people, yet he expects people to accept him. Han Yu goes on to say that if the Buddha himself were to ever walk into the courts of China, he would be thrown out and never be allowed back in so that he will not corrupt the masses. Han Yu has the point of view of the law side, meaning that he is looking at the legal side of the Buddha. He does not like Buddha, nor does he support Buddhism, because he believes it is a cult of barbarians (doc
With our ongoing contentions regarding immigration, naturalization and assimilation, it is difficult to imagine how this worked; how the immigrant could become “Real Americans” while retaining their native county ties and identities. The key element was Francis Kellor’s belief that did not equate being a good American with uniformity. [ (Press) ]. Often we think of the United States as having had slow steady development from its inception to the Civil War; then again a stable set of traditions and mores until the sexual and cultural revolution of the 60s. Nothing could be further from the truth.
