Today, I have found a really interesting article The Terrible Chinese which posted on New York Times in March, 12, 1882. Basically, it described Americans' point of view about how Chinese immigrants affect their "jobs". "They are the best imitators in the world" is what New York Times descibe all Chinese workers in 1882. We can see that Americans have racism on Chinese immigrants deeply, especially Chinese. They were the first Asian immigrant in American history and were hired by low-wage. Although this is not fair to all of the Chinese immigrants, it can't change anything since no one were stand on their side. Also, I have found an other useful article The Sino-American Alliance During World War II and the Lifting of the Chinese Exclusion Acts which indicated that how Chinese immigrants band into America's society to earn money after WWII.
