Hong Kong Americans

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hong Kong Americans or American Hong Kongers, are Americans of Hong Kong ancestry. Since 1997, Hong Kong has been a special administrative region of China; from 1841 to 1997, it was a British crown colony.

Many of the Hong Kong Americans hold both United States citizenship and right of abode in Hong Kong. Other than the US passport, many of them also hold a HKSAR Passport or the British National (Overseas) passport.

Transcription

The government of Hong Kong is too busy guessing their next leader who is best at shoeshining Peking. Dear Mr President, welcome to this introduction video about Hong Kong. Not King Kong, and we're not China. This is China. This is not China China. Not China. And this is gonna be a great video. It’s gonna be tremendous. Believe me. We love America so much our currency is pegged to the US Dollar Our girls love imitating American accents. “I’m in Hudson Jeans party in Hong Kong” Lots of Hong Kong youngsters grew up with America TV shows, Simpsons, Friends, Prison Break, 24, may be House of Cards too. Underwood is great. He’s smart. Not Kevin Spacey though. We love American fast food shops too. You know, the one that starts with M, not K. We do everything there, selling insurance, private tutoring, dating, collecting Woodys & Snoopys from Happy Meals and even weddings. It’s cool, it’s fantastic. We speak Cantonese, the most beautiful language in the world. most colourful/ colorful! Mandarin? Total disaster. We have so many tones. It's amazing, believe me. We have 6 tones Mandarin has 4 and French only has 1. Sad! Absolutely pathetic. [F*** in Cantonese] Yeah, they're so different, only smart guys like you notice it. Repeat again: [C**t in Cantonese] We have the toughest people in the world. We’re so tough. Cowards of the world run for their lives in accidents and disasters, Belgians, Spanish, English, they all run away, we are so tough, and so determined to stay … and take photos and videos to share them online. Everybody knows Kung Fu. It’s tough. It is smart. It is fierce. You should know Bruce Lee. He’s so tough, he even beat Chuck Norris’ ass. [Clip from Way of the Dragon (1972)] Never heard of him? He was actually born in California. He’s featured in your National Museum of American History. It's literally on your lawn. Just a few blocks away from your White House. If you don't like Muslims, you can send them here. They already work in our homes, taking care of our children, teaching them English, doing housekeeping, very safe. On weekends, we like filling up parks with Muslims. They just sing and picnic. It is very peaceful. No problem, I guarantee. They are so nice. We have lots of Muslims here, thanks to the British, but we have few Mexicans here. We have no feelings to them. But our top politician once brought Mexico to their knees with a single gun boat a hundred years ago. By the way, we don’t any good Mexican food here, but the burgers are tremendous. You’re gonna love it. We love walls so much that we have had walled villages and a walled city for centuries. People here were fierce, fighting with Brits a hundred years ago. Just like you Americans some 200 years ago. We had a tradition of treating women so horribly, especially in those walled villages, we allowed men to take as many wives, or concubines as they like, until the 1970s. You can grab as many pussies as you want, with your "yuge" hands. But you know we have very low taxes in Hong Kong. almost none, great for businesses. It's tremendous. It's true. Believe me. & you know a lot of businessmen and business wives here, your friends or former friends, many of them. They would love to rush to your White House now, no matter what happened before. You like your Trump Tower, we have towers everywhere. Almost everyone here lives in a tower, even slums are towers. We called it a public estate. Even Queen Elizabeth & Richard Nixon visited one. And these towers are famous for getting destroyed by robot and aliens in your Hollywood movies. You’ll recognize them instantly when you come here. I guarantee it. So welcome to Hong Kong, Mr President. We totally understand it is going to be America First, but can we just say Hong Kong second? Or 8th? (HKers adore number 8) We’ll take anything, just not China First or Singapore First. By the way, Mr President, this is the biggest fake news in Hong Kong. It’s like the New York Times, but controlled by China. So fake, totally don't understand your wisdom. That's China, not Hong Kong.

History

After the passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, an influx of Cantonese-speaking Hong Kong immigrants settled in Chinatown, San Francisco, California, and Chinatown, Manhattan, New York. In Chinatown neighborhoods, many Hong Kong immigrants opened businesses such as Chinese restaurants and supermarkets.[4][5][6]

During the 1980s and the 1990s, a large number of high-skilled Hong Kong immigrants settled in the San Francisco Bay Area, where many were employed by high-technology companies in Silicon Valley. Many of the Hong Kong immigrants in the Bay Area resided in suburban communities, such as Burlingame, South San Francisco, San Mateo, Fremont, and in the Richmond District and Sunset District in San Francisco. [7][8] Many also settled in the New York Metropolitan area.

Population

As of 2012, there are 219,231 people in the United States who are born in Hong Kong. 96,281 of people born in Hong Kong live in the state of California.[9] 39,523 of the people born in Hong Kong live in New York.[10] New Jersey, Texas and Washington have 9,487, 8,671, and 8,191 Hong Kong-born residents, respectively. There is also a sizable community of Hong Kongers in the Greater Boston Area, especially in Quincy, Massachusetts. Massachusetts has 7,464 residents who were born in Hong Kong.[11]
