Beyond Japanese American Experiences in Hawai‘i
This concluding chapter summarizes the book's principal arguments regarding the historical and contemporary experiences of Japanese Americans in Hawaiʻi. It first emphasizes the importance of race and ethnicity in interpreting Japanese American experiences before discussing Hawaiʻi's multiculturalism in the broader context of the United States as a multiracial nation. It then considers the socioeconomic and political status of Japanese Americans compared with that of other racial and ethnic minorities in Hawaiʻi, including Asian Indians and Chinese Americans. It also compares local Japanese to Asian Americans in general, particularly in relation to the model minority stereotype and to the more recent representation of Asian Americans as “becoming white” and the “new Jews”.
