Topic: Ethnic Japanese


  
  Japanese people - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
While most Japanese live on the islands, some emigrated, predominantly to Hawaii, the west coast of the United States and Canada, Latin America (particularly, Brazil), and Russia, (particularly, Sakhalin and Primorsky Krai).
The most accepted theory is that present-day Japanese are descended principally from both the Jomon, a paleo-Asiatic people, and the Yayoi, a neo-Asiatic people, with cultural influences from the Korean kingdoms of Gaya and Baekje, and also from the Sui, and Tang Dynasty of China.
Their comparatively shorter-nosed and hairless Asian counterparts to the south, however, are believed to be due to adaptation to the damper climates, and to their mixing with Austronesian prototypes, when migrating to the Pacific Ocean.

 The Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego
The ethnic Japanese, small in number and with no political voice-the citizen generation was just reaching voting age in 1940-had become a convenient target for political demagogues, and over the years all the major parties indulged in anti-Japanese rhetoric and programs.
This agitation attacked a number of ethnic Japanese cultural traits or patterns which were woven into a bogus theory that the ethnic Japanese could not or would not assimilate or become "American." Dual citizenship, Shinto, Japanese language schools, and the education of many ethnic Japanese children in Japan were all used as evidence.
To conclude otherwise is to expect that children born of white parents on Japanese soil sever all racial affinity and become loyal Japanese subjects, ready to fight and, if necessary, to die for Japan in a war against the nation of their parents.

 CHAPTER VIII
Each ethnic group has its own cultural features, but it is indeed rare in the world that the Japanese not only “bring in” foreign cultures as they please, but also possess a clear-cut stand for tenaciously defending their own traditional culture.
As the Japanese have long been of a single ethnic group and the emperors of Japan have always come from the same family, their ideology is relatively stable and their “soul” is relatively identical.
With the strengthening Japanese national awareness and a swelling sense of superiority, Japanese traditional culture represented by Japanese spirit was crowned with the name of “spirit of national prestige” and given enormous publicity.

 California Foreign Language Project: Research and Publications
This fact is interesting to note in light of the large number of non ethnic Japanese students learning this language.
We could speculate on one or two possibilities: (a) students who enroll in advanced foreign language classes enter high school with a level of motivation that is already very high; or (b) students enrolled in advanced classes show increased motivation because they are doing well, which reinforces their interest in foreign language study.
Although there is no way to determine which of our explanations is the more plausible or how they might interact with ethnic heritage students learning their ancestral language, they are worth pursuing in future research on less commonly taught languages.

I am a born and bred West Coaster, having lived all my life in a community that was greatly affected by the 1942 evacuation of ethnic Japanese from the military zones of the United States.
Although the ethnic Japanese and ethnic Europeans had resolved this history in my community back in the 1950s, a new breed of activist types have jumped on the bandwagon regarding the evacuation.
The latest is this: In my community the half-truths of the Japanese American reparations movement has done more to damage decades old friendships and acquaintances between ethnic Japanese and Europeans than Pearl Harbor ever did.
