First, Chinese people come to American from Guangdong and Hong Kong. Guangdong and Hong Kong have different way go to American. Also in Guangdong have different parts. Guangdong people go to American have to sign contract and work hard, but they don’t get paid because they got trick from contract (they have to pay ticket go to American by ship and the ticket so they got stuck in America). They work like salve in America. Most of them die from work in Hawaii because America tries to punish them. Hong Kong has orientation to worker want to go America. They have good system like health test, ticket credit (borrow money to paid ticket go to America). Guangdong wants to come America because they want to find gold in LA. After that, both Hong Kong and Guangdong worked in sugar plantations in Hawaii for cheap labor. in Hawaii and on the mainland, the Chinese had started as unskilled laborers and many had worked their way up to become small businessmen and were resented and rejected for their advancement and competition. Later on they open grocery store and Laundromat in Hawaii and LA. Chinese communication builds their church, hospitals and school. Also they have good society system (family society, society worker).

That system is help and work together. They don’t have no social system, no wife same Chinese people. The different between Chinese and Filipino are spend money. Both of them work hard, but Filipino play hard than Chinese. They spend all money in club and have fun with their buddy.

Filipino got isolated from American group and Asian group. Another word, no body want to help Filipino , but they word hard and enjoy their live.
