Who Marginalization of European Mercantilism in China The members of the first Portuguese embassy to arrive in China in the early 16th century were arrested and beaten to death by the imperial authorities of Canton. The mouths of their corpses were stuffed with their own genitals, and their heads were then sawn from their bodies and strung up in the city square. Being an imperial power themselves, the Chinese understood colonial expansion and recognized that the Portuguese were clumsily and brutally carrying out just such a venture in the Indian Ocean.
What Brown Asians are complaining about is their continued marginalization even within the Asian American community, which the New York Times video painfully showed us is still happening.
Brown Asians are just tired of being unseen, unheard, and unappreciated — even by other Asians. We are tired of the fact that when people think of Asian Americans, they seem to always think of East Asians — Chinese, Koreans, or Japanese. We are tired of being forgotten and being treated as if we are invisible!
But, you know that nagging feeling that tends to come around whenever you complain about something? That question mark in the back of your mind asking if maybe you are just being overly sensitive?
I got that feeling. The media outlets I checked out were: Here are the results of my search: David As you can see in the graph, the content for all four media outlets extend higher than the red line for East Asians Chinese, Koreans, and Japanese. This indicates that for all four media outlets, stories about East Asians are disproportionately overrepresented given their population size marked by the red line.
In contrast, only 3. The Asian American content of the major newspaper is We also see that In contrast, although Vietnamese also compose 10 percent of the Asian American population, only 0.
Brown Asians are disproportionately underrepresented, consistently and across the board.
The graph shows the content for all four media outlets do not even reach the red line for Brown Asians, indicating that Brown Asian stories are not covered enough by the media. So based on this data, our hunch — the feeling that we are often treated as if we are second-class, perhaps even third-class, Asian Americans — seems to be correct.
This disregard and invisibility is widespread, and is clearly seen in which Asian Americans are covered by the media — whose stories are deemed as important, whose realities are validated, whose truths are shared, whose complexities are explored and whose humanities are displayed. In this case, we understand how media shapes who society thinks as Asian American and how society sees Asian Americans.
We want to be represented in media so that our realities and experiences, struggles and victories, pains and joys — a more complete and nuanced portrait of us — can be shared with society.
