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.
When thinking about the Chinese people and their culture, what are some of the positive things that come to mind?
6. Respectfulness – 14 respondents
5. History – 17 respondents
4. Culture – 18 respondents
3. Intelligent/value education – 20 respondents
2. Family-oriented – 49 respondents
1. Hard-working/diligent – 130 respondents
More Chinese-Americans think of themselves and the Chinese people as hard working than all the other characteristics together.
I have seen all of these characteristics in my Chinese friends.
How about you?
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 task 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 ideas, 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.
