The JusticeForAsianAmerican.org has good faith belief that the recent Islands dispute in East China Sea has arisen from repeated errors by the United States since 1945 in the end of WW2. Historical records suggest that the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands were the property of imperial China until the Japanese annexed them after their defeat of China in 1895. Later administered by the United States after 1945, the islands were handed back to Japan in early 1972.
On September 11, 2012, the Japanese Government purchased the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands from the private owner that has owned the island since 1972. Japan has now nationalized the ownership of the islands and unilaterally claiming ownership of the islands. September 15, 2012, Asian Americans, especially Chinese Americans have staged the peaceful demonstration in many cities throughout United States and Canada. This has spread into other cities in Asia and Europe. The majority of 30 million overseas Chinese (outside of Mainland China) having Chinese Ancestry are in opposition to the purchase.
United States is a multi ethnic country, all were either immigrants or the descendants of the early immigrant to the U.S. over the past three hundred years, Asian Pacific Americans, began immigrating to the U.S. in the past fifty years, only Native Americans were local. AAPIs consisted of eighteen (18.2) million people constituting 6% of the total population, 14% of which lived in California. AAPIs are the nation’s fastest growing racial group, growing by as much as 46 percent during the first decade of this century, points out JusticeForAsianAmerican.org.
U.S. foreign policy and action, as well as, other Asian countrys policies and actions could directly impact the Asian Pacific Americans in U.S., such as, the Japanese Surprise Attack in Pearl Harbor. This strike prompted the U.S.s internment of 124,000 Japanese Americans in the West Coast of U.S. in WWII. The Chinese Americans and Korean Americans in the U.S. were being questioned about their loyalty during the Korean War. The Vietnamese American were blamed for the Vietnam War. In California, Asian Pacific Americans were living side by side in the same neighborhoods, working side by side in working place, with more than 50% of Japanese Restaurants owned by either Chinese or Korean Americans. Any tension arising from Asia or escalations, even some impractical suggestions from Internet of “Boycotting” could cause a significant inconvenience and financial loss to AAPIs, recent tension already causing lower stock prices of Automobile and the Airline Travel Industries.
