I think that although the word nigger was used frequently in this book it showed the ...

  • Can Multiculturalism Reduce Prejudice
    1,100 words
    In the past several years there has been a growing trend towards multiculturalism in many areas of our society, most significantly on college and university campuses. This is likely due to a belief that the traditional Christian American values and perspective are unable to deal with the growing numbers of various ethnic minorities in our society. Although this trend would seem to have a potential to change society for the better, I believe that it has been and will be largely ineffectual. It do...

I believe that Asian Americans should include politics in their writing as they so choose, but should not feel obligated to do so, as Frank Chin suggests. For those Asian Americans who make known their discontent with the injus...
