History of Japanese immigration, occupations, economics, quotas, gender issues, social contributions. Tables.
The history of the Japanese American in the United States has taught the majority culture a great deal about perseverance through adversity. The level of discrimination and assumed values that led to stereotyping was endured until the American people were able to see the inherent value of the addition of this particular culture into the melting pot that is the American social objective. Many of the Japanese Americans have taken the social value of education and translated that into a career in teaching, which has strengthened that particular value for all students and added to the American concept of education.
