Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
A poll was conducted of 354 Chinese Americans who were chosen at random nationwide by from a surname list.
They were asked a series of questions about their attitudes toward China and their views on China and US-China Relations.
Do you agree that movies, fashion, and culture from China and Hong Kong improve the image of Chinese-Americans?
An overwhelming amount (70%) think that movies, fashion and culture from China have a positive impact on how they are perceived.
It is a sad state of affairs when we, anyone, has to rely on Hollywood or the fashion designers to improve our image.
China has a deep and rich culture. There is no argument there. There is much this 2-year-old country can learn from that 50-year-old one…and vice versa.
I just wish the movies weren’t the textbooks that everyone is studying.
What do you think?
These survey results were taken from a poll conducted by the Committee of 100.
The Committee of 100 is a national, nonpartisan organization composed of prominent American citizens of Chinese descent. The members of this group pool their resources to address important issues that concern the Chinese/American community but, imho, more importantly foster better US-Greater China relations.
Recently, this group tasked the polling firm ZOGBY to conduct an extensive survey of American Attitudes Toward China.
They polled the General Population (General Public) as well as Chinese Americans. Business leaders, Opinion leaders and Congressional staffers, subsets of the general public were also polled.
In keeping with the Committee of 100 ideals I hope it will create discussion and be used to better understand U.S.-China relations and help those concerned to formulate recommendations on how to improve relationships between these two great countries.
