its because they are overpoweringly strong. China during that time that i believe is the early 1900s because it was either during the gold rush or the after-effects of the gold rush , was not as powerful as it is today because of its government, climate and labor. The Americans had everything and had their own government to support them. Not only that, but they would abuse foreigners like Chinese as an example of discrimination. This is paralleled to the first appearance of the KKK (Ku Klux Klan), where the African Americans had no legal rights and wanted to show white supremacy. Even after the first appearance, the KKK attacked other races and religions in their rebirth in the 1900s. Thinking outside of the box this time, I don't think its mention in the book that would support my answer, but in my opinion the American's way of supremacy would influence the Chinese to make them turn into 'demons.' Look at us now in a Chinese perspective..... Does a Chinese family still run to be known as a disciplinary family, strict as it ever was, but still relaxed? Has our culture since we've gotten to America died down within our family without the help of other devoted Chinese families? Let's all take a small moment to remember this and reflect on this before we make our own families ok?
