Describe two contrasting attitudes/perceptions of Chinese people and culture commonly held among Americans at some time between the late 19th and mid-20th centuries. You may choose two attitudes that were simultaneously held by different groups or contrasting perceptions that prevailed before and after a major shift in attitude (or a shift between the negative and positive content of the image of the Chinese). Pay particular attention to (a) what these attitudes were based upon, (b) how these attitudes manifested themselves in daily life, news. Mass media, fashion, intellectual life, etc., etc., whether attitudes toward other groups (Japanese, Native Americans, African Americans, etc.) mirrored attitudes toward the Chinese or were distinct from them, and (d) whether these attitudes are still present in original or evolved form today.
