  1. I love the Jewish saying about immigration – What grandfather knows, the son wants to forget, and the grandson wants to remember. No matter how much time passes and generations come and go, this still remains true and relevant. until you have been someplace for at least 4 generations chances are unlikely that you’ve gained enough history, perspective, and context to legitimately evaluate any new culture and community. My family has been legally in America since 1847. The Lees and Wongs are the #1 & @ largest clans of all of China. The Chans are the 5th largest clans. I share this because I am a Wong, Lee, and Chan by blood. I, not unlike many of my relatives and ancestors were the first to hold our titles and positions in the private sector as well as the public sector. However, it is statistically insignificant how many Chinese Americans have ever held top tier corporate level positions unless the company is Chinese or Asian own. The only Asian Americans to break that ceiling are Asian Indians. Evidently Asian-Indians are viewed less a threat to the white world because whites had successfully dominated India and have yet to ever dominate China. Hence, Chinese Americans are the only legal immigrant citizens who have had Federal and state laws that diminished our legal rights and thus full enjoyment of the American way to this day.
