Different Types of Cultures Author Examines the Asian-American Culture in the United States
New article focuses on studying the Asian-American culture in the United States and the stereotypes that have developed as a result of people not understanding the differences in cultures.
Gardnerville, Nevada, December 17, 2011 - The senior writer on the Different Types of Cultures website yesterday announced the publication of a new article that’s entitled: “A View on Asian-American Culture”. The article focuses on studying the Asian-American culture in the United States and the stereotypes that have developed as a result of people not understanding the differences in cultures.
There are many different types of cultures around the world which have a great history behind them and unique styles of dressing and behaving that sets them apart from the American culture. The Asian-American culture in the United States is incredibly broad and encompasses the Philippines, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. About 4.8 percent of the United States’ population identify themselves as being a part of the Asian-American culture.
One of the biggest obstacles that Asian-Americans face on a daily basis is being stereotyped and classified into one large group when in reality the culture is comprised of a very diverse group of people. Filipino-Americans and Chinese-Americans are not the same kind of people because they don’t behave and think alike nor is their food the same regardless of where they live.
Asia is the world’s largest continent. It covers 8.7 percent of the earth’s total surface area and with approximately 3.9 billion people it hosts more than half of the world’s human population. Asia is known to have vast cultures and traditions every one of which has many differences between each other so it is almost impossible to stereotype Asian-Americans.
Many Asian-Americans live abroad by choice. After being born in the United States they move to Asia for employment opportunities or to explore their ancestry. Asian-Americans that live abroad and then move back to the United States bring with them the differences of the culture from which they came which makes the Asian culture even more diverse.
