The above link seemed relevant to Junaid Rana’s paper. It doesn’t present any surprising ideas, and doesn’t even necessarily focus on Asians, but I chose this article because it seemed relevant to the paper by giving accounts of the sort of hate crimes and discrimination that American muslims were subjected to post 9-11. By giving a more vivid face to the matter, it became all the more real and I felt I better understood the issue of “moral panic” at a social level.

In relation to “Youth, Culture, Citizenship, and Globalization” the above link Better defines cultural citizenship. It brings up the interesting case of 19th century San Francisco, where many chinese immigrants never became full “citizens” because the did not need to interact outside their own communities. They instead remained in immigrant towns where customs would be accepted and they wouldn’t have to Americanize. I found this interesting because it defied the idea in “Youth, Culture, Citizenship, and Globalization” that cultural citizenship necessarily “becomes an important construct” for immigrants. Even today, we see conclaves of nearly isolated subcultures in America, and so long as those cultures are not already part of American culture or so much as trying to be, they are retaining their own cultural citizenship, even within foreign borders.
