Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, grade: 1,0,, language: English, abstract: In 1965, President Lyndon Johnson signed a bill that opened up opportunities for nonwhite immigrants, especially Asians, who have traditionally been hindered from entering America. As a result of the U.S. Immigration Act that has dramatically changed the method by which immigrants are admitted to the United States also David Ho and his family came to this country. Since then, in many ways Asian Americans have done remarkably well in achieving 'the American dream' of getting a good education, a well paid job and living a desirable lifestyle and therefore they have been celebrated as America's 'model minority'. By the 1990s this topic had become so widely accepted that even researchers, searching for an underlying scientific explanation, began treating Asian Americans success as an empirical phenomenon.
