Modern afternoon Chinatown is a vibrant and bustling community full of bright colors and Chinese characters adorning buildings so far as the eye can see. Chinese elders roam round the narrow and unkempt roads while children frolic around from store to shop with broad smiles, riffling through toy stores as shop owners look on. Mothers decide from store to store searching for the most tender meats to purchase for the night's dinner or to get your next day's dinner. Tourists from neighboring downtown ramble to the heart of Chinatown with big and costly cameras, posing for photos using Lion head statues and continue on, purchasing cheap Chinatown goods along the way. Everywhere there are signs of the Chinese Army's sweat, labor, and collective efforts over a matter of decades poured into creating a safe harbor for Asian endorsement and mutual cooperation. Fae Myenne Ng's Bone is a account of a Chinese immigrant family's struggle with the Asian American experience in San Francisco's Chinatown from the 1960's to 1990's. Bone portrays the struggle for Chinatown families to locate acceptance within their community and within the family itself, depicting the anxieties arising from both poor economic conditions and internal family struggles. Contrary to Euro-American immigrants, Chinese immigrants were pressured into, dense concentrations of their own nationality, isolating them in American societal culture. Neighborhoods out of Chinatown were unwelcoming in order that their only salvation could be found in Chinatown. Initial production Chinese in Chinatown worked among themselves and preserved strongly traditional attitudes and practices, learning little English since their homeland dialects of Cantonese or Mandarin were more than adequate from the program.
