Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Oct 4, 2021

Welcome to Episode 52 of the Asian American History 101 podcast! There is a long history of Ethnic Enclaves across America. However, even though European immigrants formed their own Ethnic Enclaves, they often moved out faster or were accepted more quickly into the mainstream U.S. society. But Asian Ethnic Enclaves are notable because they stand out as more “exotic” or different, and because they have been centers of support to more recent Asian immigrants. We also take time to reminisce on our memories of visiting different Ethnic Enclaves. We close the episode with another episode of Giving the Karate Chop to Stereotypes where we dispute the idea that Asian men are asexual wimps.
