The De-Americanization of Asian Americans

From ImmigrationProf Blog:

Eight U.S. soldiers serving in Afghanistan have been arrested in connection with the apparent suicide of Pvt. Danny Chen, a 19-year-old infantryman who was Chinese American. The arrests came after family members pressured the Pentagon to investigate allegations that Chen had been repeatedly taunted with racial slurs. The alleged anti-Asian bullying and taunting started during basic training when fellow soldiers used a mocking accent while calling him Jackie Chan; others allegedly told him to “go back to China.” The eight soldiers have been charged with dereliction of duty and manslaughter.
