And also, hope everyone has a good Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Asian Americans owe much to Dr. King, since the fact that recent immigrants like the Korean and countless other Asian Americans can have the chance to succeed in America is entirely due to the Civil Rights Movement.

Thank you Dr. King, for making the American Dream possible.

    "How was yellow power, or the Asian-American Civil Rights Movement, born? In watching African Americans expose institutional racism and government hypocrisy, Asian Americans began to identify the ways in which they, too, had faced discrimination in the U.S."

  5. ztraderx, yes, the African American Civil Rights Movement was for the African Americans. But it didn't affect just African Americans.
