Moving "West Asian" out of Asian American[edit]

West Asians do not identify as Asian. They identify as Middle Eastern in the USA. They are not officially part of the Asian race with the US Census Bureau. They are only included as part of Asia in some maps because Asia has been defined as the non-European part of Eurasia. -- Dark Tichondrias

This is partially false. Americans of Middle Eastern extraction do not identify as "white", but rather are identified as such by the U.S government. There is a fundamental difference. Technajunky 19:25, 8 June 2006 (UTC)


Regards[edit]

Thanks for moderating the discussion.

Until about two weeks ago, all I knew about the issue was what I had casually heard, mostly in relation to the current issue of homeland security, profiling, etc. I got into a discussion with my wonderful, smart daughter, and did a quick google, finding contrarian arguments, some of which appear to have substantial validity, at least on first glance. Unfortunately, the WP page was confusing and self-contradictory, therefore uninformative and unreliable. I bought a copy of Malkin's book, but also used many other googled sources. It seems there are more every day, and one definitive conclusion is that this topic engenders strong feelings.

As I said to our other discussant, a difference of opinion, or a difference of perception does not inevitably equate to bigotry, racism, or prejudice. Each of us constructs a model of the world and the universe, to guide our operations. If our model is sound, our operations succeed. When our models differ, it does not imply anything about our intrinsic character — it is only about our perceptions, which can be distorted by our conceptions – our ideology. Ideology is the antithesis of objectivity, analysis and logic, and it can really screw up your model.

I’m just trying to work on my model. Regards - Topnife 20:51, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

I appreciate your invitation to me, and your confidence in me, to help with editing the internment topic. As I stated above, I have a relatively superficial understanding of the issue, based upon a brief research into the area in order to inform myself enough to have a friendly dispute with my daughter. My lifetime strategy has always been to immediately distrust "conventional wisdom", which was especially easy to do, when I saw the factual inaccuracies and internal contradictions of the topic on Wikipedia.
I've kept the topic on my watchlist, and have been interested to see the turmoil which has erupted lately. I have been ignorant of the internal politics which you describe, however. I'd like to believe that I have approached the question with intellectual objectivity. My libertarian concerns for the issue of constitutionality and individual liberty are counterbalanced by my abhorrence for historical revisionism and of racism (and reverse racism). Our liberties must be protected from external efforts to destroy them, while internally preserving them from corruption. (I am led to recall the quote from Vietnam: "We had to destroy the village, in order to save it.") Ad hominem attacks, and irrational name-calling demonstrate only that the originator lacks factual information to support his ideological position, and that he believes that thinking consists of rearranging his prejudices.
I must humbly decline (due to my perception of my own ignorance) the role of active editor, but I would participate in a dialogue on the comments section, aimed at orienting the topic around facts rather than emotions.
Humble regards, again.
Topnife 20:00, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

I just found your new re-write of the internment topic. This is a MAJOR improvement on the prior version, and certainly argues the topic much more objectively than the previous writeup. I complement you on oganizing and developing an objective and balanced revision of a tendentious report. You've taken on an arduous task.

A couple issues come to my mind:

  • I have seen it stated that aliens of German and Italian origin were interned by DOJ, regardless of their site of residence (i.e., not relocated, but essentially imprisoned). The article implies otherwise.
  • The numbers of 112 - 120K persons relocated always state that 2/3 were American citizens. Granting that most adults were not allowed to become citizens, it appears that this fraction includes many minor children, who were relocated with their "alien" parents. It would obviously be impossible to relocate their parents and leave them behind. Therefore the statistic may have misleading implications.
  • Were significant numbers of adult American citizens (of Japanese ethnic origin), either naturalized or native-born, subjected to the exclusion orders? (I understand this statistic may be difficult to discover).
  • It's necesssary to somehow maintain a perspective on the state-of-mind which pervaded the decision process, and daily life, at the time. It's easy to look back now, and see that urgent decisions made at the time, sometimes with a background of racial bias (I think "racial hatred" may be too strong a term), were inappropriate by our current standards:
  • Our cultural attitude toward racial bias has undergone a revolutionary change during the last 50 years. Flagrantly racist practices were ingrained, and were engaged in without even being conscious of them. As a teenager, I had furious arguments with my bigoted father, about his attitudes, and I hated his intransigence. I did not hate my father.
  • Racially loaded news reports, cartoons, posters and daily conversations, with derogatory references to "japs" were the norm during the war. To judge 1940s expressions by 2006 standards is historical revisionism.
  • The relocation decision was supported from the very top, by FDR, who has been documented to have had racial attitudes which we would today judge to be totally unacceptable.
  • On the other hand, DeWitt is stated to have initially opposed relocation. The bigoted statements he later made may have been colored by several years of war with Japan, many thousands of American casualties, and also by a desire to agree with those who would be responsible for his career advancement. In other words, his statements have to be kept in context, just as should be the decision by many Japanese-Americans not to serve in the U.S. armed forces.
  • I think it's unwise to explicitly support the analogy that has been made between the internment/relocation issue, and the present-day question of ethnic profiling with respect to terrorism. The analogy is imperfect, the present-day safeguards are far more stringent, and the consequences are very different. Making or re-iterating this connection is not a good argument.
  • "Snow Falling on Cedars", while an emotionally moving book, was a work of fiction. I think it is not an appropriate historical reference.

JAI Restructuring[edit]

I see you noticed my absence from the page. It's not that I've lost interest in the topic; honestly my attention has been elsewhere the last week or two. I really only got involved in the page in the first place in response to HS' actions, which worried me enough to respond. Since then I've gotten interested in the editing side of the process.

Overall your proposed reorganization looks good to me. As for whether restructuring is necessary to begin with, I think the idea does have some merit. The JAI article, as is, is clearly very crufty, with various users having added their input over the course of years. I don't think anyone has ever gone through and pulled out the incorrect, uncited, POV, poorly written, or self-contradictory stuff that has accumulated, and an article restructuring is the perfect way to do that. You seem up to the task (especially considering your long-standing interest in the article), and I therefore support your efforts in this regard.

This topic is clearly controversial, and any article on the topic will be controversial by extension. Putting the maximum possible citation into the article helps, but there will always be users who will argue POV based on omission or comission - HS seemed to be of the former type, as one of his earlier "retorts" implied that he recognized POV slant within the article, and decided the correct response was to add POV slant in the other direction. Although his strategy was clearly not appropriate, his actions seem to have been a catalyst for a process of deep revision which this article desperately needs.Ogthor 11:12, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Would you kindly explain the reason you oppose Los Angeles from being named consistently with other world famous cities like Paris, London, New York City, Chicago and Philadelphia, and support it being disambiguated with a state like lesser-known cities that need disambiguation (like Hollywood, Florida)?

Naming Conventions poll[edit]

I'm confused. I've seen references to "Tariq's proposal" but when I scanned, I found JohnK's proposal that you supported (move 27 AP cities). Can you point me to the most recent statement of your proposal? If your proposal is inactive, I intend to oppose the current proposal in favor of reopening the discussion around a proposal I can support.

In the name of antidisruption, I am willing to support some such proposal, even though I otherwise support the comma convention. These debates are just a PITA, and the AP list provides a sufficient backstop and rationale as to which cities to include. Thanks for your contributions to this discussion. --ishu 04:12, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

The proposal they are referring to is this one. Serge closed john k's proposal and my proposal because people were complaining there were too many proposals open concurrently, not because there was anything wrong with the other two. -- tariqabjotu 04:29, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Cities and styles[edit]

Newspapers and most print media have what are called style sheets, it's been a while so I may have the name wrong, that cover all issues that relate to presentation. This includes things like the number of columns used, fonts and sizes. It also defines how items will appear. One of the best examples of this in in USA Today where any reference to the United States is inclued as USA. My contention is that we are simply defining what style we will use to present the titles for any US city article. People throw around 'common name' which does not help to provide a consistant look and feel for US city articles. The MoS tries to do this at a very high level. My contention is that a well crafted style would meet the NC guideline of Generally, article naming should give priority to what the majority of English speakers would most easily recognize, with a reasonable minimum of ambiguity, while at the same time making linking to those articles easy and second nature. For me, since many places require the use of a state, that all should have the state since it makes this second nature. It is better for all of these place names to follow a consistant format. We already do this with counties, so why not cities. We also have decided to aviod using the correct name for many places.
So if I have to define this as a style, ignoring exceptions for now, it be would something like. "US location articles are named as 'location, state'. Extra qualifiers like town, city or township are generally not used".
I know I did not do a good job explaining this, but I hope you better understand what I'm trying to get across. Vegaswikian 20:59, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

I think your points are valid. My only concern is that if you take that another step forward, it begs the question. should that standard become the general convention. It will be interesting to see what happens. Vegaswikian 22:22, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

help me[edit]

I have noticed a number of wikilinked dates in in-universe synopses such as Khan Noonien Singh. It seems to me that these links should be removed, as they refer to fictional events in the fictional universe, while the dates are linked to the real-life universe. I cannot find guidance readily available. --Ishu 21:36, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

I think you are right, I would suggest you to be bold and remove the fictional dates links and see if someone disagrees. I leave the helpme notice so you can have broader input. Happy Editing! -- lucasbfr talk 21:46, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
And so I have. I appreciate additional input. Thanks! --Ishu 21:49, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
I concur. I do think that broader ideas such as "20th cenutry" should remain linked, but individual years probably shouldn't be linked. However, you might want to check with Wikiproject Star Trek to see if they have dating conventions, or leave a note on the relevant article talk pages asking about it. -- Merope 21:55, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Naming conventions (settlements)[edit]

Thankyou for your comments on Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (settlements). I'm sorry to read your frustration in your last couple of posts, but I understand it completely. I intended my tag-teaming of answers with you as an indication that I believe we have similar views, and to encourage you. Sorry I didn't do it more explicitly.

I'm not good at detecting when it becomes time to just shut up and walk away. I think we've finally reached there, but any future comments by certain people will require a reply just so they don't end up succeeding by wearing the rest of us out. I wish they'd just stop and go back to expanding and improving the article contents. Thanks for assuring me that I'm not out on my own in believing the current US convention is close to right. The Australian form has been stable for almost 2 years without any complaints. If I find misnamed Australian town/city/suburb/village articles, I fix them, and I think I've had one followup/inquiry in that time. We've had bigger arguments about which state/territory some places are in than the form of the article name. Even that was really just a single misguided individual. --Scott Davis Talk 13:03, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Using English[edit]

Hello - I'm contacting you because of your involvement with using English instead of foreign terms in articles.

Ethnic-group lists deletion discussions[edit]

Hi, I noticed you participated in one of these three deletion discussions:

All three discussions have similar issues but are leaning in different directions, so you may want to participate in the others, if only for the sake of consistencey and to avoid accusations that Wikipedians are being unfair to some group or groups (which is something that concerns me). I'm asking everyone who participated in one discussion to participate in the others. I apologize for bothering you if you already have participated in the others. Best wishes, Noroton 04:23, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

thanks[edit]

Thanks for your comments. I have no problem if the article says something like "in the strictest sense, it refers only to citizens", "in official parlance, it refers only to citizens" or "in colloquial usage, it may also refer to non-citizens", etc. Actually, I think the version at present (which lists the dictionary definitions as the primary meaning and the "Encarta" definition as a secondary meaning) is not bad, although I would of course restrict the colloquial usage to "possessors of a lawful permanent residency", etc. as obviously it doesn't apply to illegal immigrants. But I think the lead-off section is basically fine as-is.

The section that is troubling to me is the "terminology" section. Some of the statements, i.e., "The most commonly-used definition of Asian American is the Census Bureau definition of Asian" are almost sure to be false, as the C.B.'s definition of Asian is all-inclusive, and as I understand it, if I were from Japan, studying at a university in America during a census year, I would be required to fill out a census, and would register as an "Asian". Clearly a Japanese person studying at an university for a couple of years is not an "Asian American".

The following sentence seems nonsensical, at least to me: "For example, restricting American to include only U.S. citizens conflicts with discussions of Asian American businesses, which generally refer both to citizens and non-citizens", and I fail to see how the analogy is at all factual, relevant or logical.

The last sentence of that section: "The census is a notable--if implicit--example of this definition of American, since the census counts all people regardless of citizenship or immigration status." appears to be a complete falsehood, because, as I've said, the census seems to either avoid use of the term "Asian American" altogether, or separate them, as in the example I posted on the talk page.

The rest of the article may need to be cleaned up. For example, the section on demographics uses the word "Asian American" to refer to census data, although "Asian" seems to be the official census terminology.

I get the feeling that this article may have been infected with some POV from America's Asian immigrant community. Bueller 007 18:53, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

You can copy any parts of this that you think would be relevant/useful over to the Asian-American article's talk page. Bueller 007 10:33, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello, Ishu. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Asian Americans in science and technology, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.
