Japanese International Female Students' Experience of Discrimination, Prejudice, and Stereotypes
Bonazzo, Claude; Wong, Y. Joel
College Student Journal, v41 n3 p631-639 Sep 2007
This qualitative study examined four Japanese international female college students' experience of discrimination, prejudice, and stereotypes in a predominately white university. Four themes emerged from the analysis of data: (1) overt forms of prejudice and discrimination; (2) stereotypes common to Asians; (3) stereotypes unique to the Japanese; and (4) coping with discrimination through avoidance. Participants' experiences were diverse and ranged from more blatant forms of discrimination to more subtle assaults such as one-dimensional stereotypes about Japanese culture. Most participants used avoidance strategies when they encountered discrimination. The limitations and implications of this study are discussed.
