A study of the Chinese community indicates that the men in the community are better educated than the women. In addition, many senior citizens are Chinese. However, cultural tensions exist between the black and Chinese communities.
Women of Chinese origin make up a substantial majority of seniors
China is facing an imminent demographic crisis. The country’s fertility has declined in recent years. The result is that a growing proportion of Chinese parents will die alone. This situation has serious social and economic implications, and may force the nation to rethink its approach to politics and economics.
Another reason for concern is the ageing of the Chinese labor force. As China’s workforce ages, political power will be weakened. In addition, a growing number of retired Chinese will not have a spouse or children to rely on. Consequently, the party will be challenged to provide for the nation’s needs.
China’s one-child policy has caused a huge ripple in the family structure of hundreds of millions of Chinese families. Currently, two-thirds of all urban Chinese couples have observed the one-child rule. Despite its shortcomings, the one-child rule is not expected to end anytime soon.
China’s aging population will have a profound impact on the country’s economy and the international peace and security that it has enjoyed for decades. However, China’s leaders are unprepared for this reality.
Men of Chinese origin have more education than women of other origins
The Chinese have long been considered a male dominated bunch. Women were generally seen as secondary to men in a household but a recent survey indicates this is a thing of the past. While this is not to say that men are still not men, it is worth a mention that women of all ages are starting to take their place in the workforce as well. There was a time when a woman had to be in the house to cook the family meal, but times have changed. So, it is no surprise that women are more likely to juggle the household budget than their husbands are to cook the dinner.
Although the survey did not reveal the gendered proportions of the Chinese household, it did give us a few interesting insights about the gender distribution in the U.S. One such revelation was the gender-related differences in the number of children, a fact that was largely overlooked in the social studies and statistical analyses that accompanied the findings.
Impacts of Chinese migration abroad on indigenous communities and host countries
Thousands of Chinese migrants live abroad, especially in Southeast Asia. The vast majority of them reside in Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore. Some also reside in Indonesia, Brunei, and Philippines. In addition, some Chinese immigrants have settled in North America, South America, Europe, and Africa.
While the number of Chinese migrants abroad continues to increase, it is difficult to generalize about the migration pattern. Overseas Chinese communities vary greatly in their relationship with China and their interactions with their surrounding societies. However, one thing is clear: most overseas Chinese maintain strong ties with their home country. They are hard-working, thrifty, and have a tradition of saving their income.
China’s economy has grown rapidly over the past three decades. This has created more opportunities for Chinese migrants to move abroad, and has led to a surge in the number of migrants. There are more than 50 million overseas Chinese living in Southeast Asia. These immigrants mainly come from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and mainland China.
Cultural tensions between the black and Chinese communities
Many of the cultural tensions between blacks and Chinese communities in the United States are rooted in discrimination. This has always been the case, but it is becoming more widespread in recent years. The fact that a large number of people of light skin are partial African descent, combined with the racial mix of immigrants from China and other Asian countries, has been causing some to question the nature of American racial boundaries. As the awareness of multiracial ancestry grows, it is likely that the racial boundaries will change over the next few decades.
In many states in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the legality of intermarriage was restricted. Black ghettos were built in every major city during the first half of the twentieth century. By 1930, the mulatto category had been dropped from the census. One-drop rule, a discriminatory ideology that enforced discrimination in the South, also played a major role in the ghettoization of blacks. Throughout the twentieth century, the percentage of whites and blacks decreased, as intermarriage became illegal and the ghettos were constructed.
