    What are the most significant similarities between the Chinese American and Japanese American [cultural] experiences? What are the differences? (Schaefer, 2006, p. 352)

            Choose from any of the following topics when considering similarities and differences:

            o Level of assimilation

            o Relative lifestyle success in the United States

            o Political involvement

            o Experience with racism, prejudice, and discrimination

            o Pursuit of education

            o Role in the economy

            o Continuance of family and religious traditions

One difference between Chinese Americans and Japanese Americans is the level of assimilations among them.  Over the years the Chinese Americans were able to preserve the cultural and ethnic traditions without too much influence from other groups. Japanese Americans on the other hand, have gradually adopted the customs and attitudes of the American culture over the years.
A similarity between both Chinese Americans and Japanese Americans is their experience with prejudice and discrimination.  Despite all efforts, both of these groups face discrimination from their fellow Americans just like any other minority groups.
