Introduction
Sino American Reunion (SAR) was founded in February of 2018 to provide assistance to those individuals wishing to return to the People's Republic of China (PRC). Our material is largely aimed at second-generation American citizens of Chinese descent. Our membership is largely composed of Sino American professionals — engineers, lawyers, hedge fund managers, university instructors, and such — who came to feel, to some extent, dissatisfied with their American upbringing and career (or else, Australian, Canadian…) and who decided that the best course of action was to reverse their parents' decision to immigrate, especially after having witnessed, over the years, evidence of the nonnegligible existence of racially motivated obstacles. While not espousing, nor encouraging, the general resentment of people of European racial origin, we also no longer discount, concerning the United States in particular (and possibly Australia, Canada…) the prospect of hostile and prejudicial persons constituting the societal majority — especially in light of the lifelong social challenges which the Chinese (and Korean) descendants growing up in those places have undergone.
SAR also offers consolation and advice for victims of abuse by their immigrant parents, which, it gives us pause to say, has been a fairly widespread occurrence during these recent decades. Contrary to the misconceptions spread by the American media, and by the American educational establishment, the abuse-epidemic suffered by young Sino Americans is largely an immigrant phenomenon, and is not reflective of the way which families operate back in China. More and more Sino American college students are realizing this fact, having encountered, on their campuses, the large influx of healthy, self-esteeming, and distinguished PRC foreign students, who evidently had not emerged from households centered on — we regret to observe — constant death threats, physical thrashings, and vulgarisms. Quite the opposite — students and professionals from the PRC are seen to enjoy the sort of self-esteem and rapport which we, as Sino Americans, formerly associated with the people of Western countries. But our eyes have now been opened in this late era, and we have realized that what were termed "Asian troubles" in the 1990s and 2000s were really Asian American troubles bearing little connection with Asia.
It may be slightly late for us, on account of our variant childhoods, to fully blend in with PRC society, but we are pleased to enjoy a respite from further racial complications and to provide a mainstream upbringing for our children. All this being said, the members of SAR are pleased to strive for increased global understanding, diminished racial prejudice, and emphasis upon the ethical qualities of humankind, as opposed to spurning people based on their race or background. We are motivated in our quest to fix things by the ardent difficulties of those who came before us. Lastly, we do invite you to join our movement as well.
