Robert Dunn’s Position
Following the plethora of stereotypical depictions of the Chinese in America, the American born Chinese became interested to define for themselves their identities and what it means to be Chinese. During the contest, Robert Dunn took the position of favoring a future in America but this position seemed less than appealing to his American born Chinese. Dunn’s position was to make a decision that would determine or influence his future happiness and success. Dunn showed his allegiance to America where he was born and where he lived but still had respect for China. Robert Dunn was advocating for a future in America because he was born and brought up in Roxbury and hence he had grown up in a large American community. Due to his position, Dunn was regarded by his American born peers as unpatriotic to China because these peers had allegiance to China rather than America. AAS320-Chinese in America.
