AMERICANIZING IMMIGRANTS-"CONTROLLING THROUGH ALLIANCE" BY, ROBERT E. PARK

AMERICANIZING IMMIGRANTS: "CONTROLLING THROUGH ALLIANCE"











BACKROUND INFO: BETWEEN 1890-1920, A LARGE NUMBER OF EASTERN EUROPEAN AND SOUTHERN(TIER) IMMIGRANTS MIGRATED TO AMERICA."BY 1920 OVER HALF THE PEOPLE IN U.S. WERE EITHER IMMIGRANTS OR CHILDREN OF IMMIGRANTS."


WHY AMERICANIZE THE IMMIGRANTS?:

"THERE WAS A SENSE THAT, UNLESS TRANSFORMED THESE NEW-COMERS ---EDUCATED BY UNFAMILIAR AND BANEFUL SOCIAL,POLITICAL AND/OR RELIGIOUS OUTLOOKS--WOULD UNDERMINE TRADITIONAL AMERICAN VALUES.


AMERICA WANTED TO REMAIN AMERICA!


STRATEGY OF AMERICANIZATION:
ESTABLISHING A FOREIGN-LANGUAGE NEWSPAPER IN THE U.S.WHERE GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE INTER-RACIAL COUNCIL AND FOREIGN LANGUAGE BUREAU MODIFIED IT CLOSELY.

  • IMMIGRANTS COULD NOW LEARN AND UNDERSTAND THE "NEW WORLD" THEY LIVED IN.

  • THEY FELT MORE WELCOMED BECAUSE AMERICANS WERE WILLING TO FUND AND SUPPORT FOREIGN-LANGUAGE PRESS.

  • ADVERTISING, USED AS AN ESSENTIAL TOOL FOR OPPOSING RADICAL IDEAS AMONG IMMIGRANT EMPLOYEES AND ENCOURAGED AN AMERICAN SOCIAL AND CULTURAL LIFESTYLE.

"...AMERICA HAS RECIEVED YOU WHEN YOU CAME HERE SHE WANTS YOU NOW TO REMAIN HERE" (-INTER-RACIAL COUNCIL ADVERTISMENT) **THIS IS ONE OF THE WAYS IMMIGRANTS WERE PERSUADED INTO DOING THINGS THE AMERICAN WAY.

  • "BETTER UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN CAPITAL AND LABOR" ** EARLY 20TH-CENTURY AMERICA WAS INDUSTRIALIZING AND THE IMMIGRANTS DID THE HARD LABOR.
  • "USEFUL IN WINNING THE WORLD WAR" **KEPT THE PEACE IN AMERICA

"..FOREIGN- LANGUAGE PAPERS ARE BOUND TO BE MORE PATRIOTIC AND MORE CONSIDERATE OF AMERICAN BUSINESS." -ROBERT E. PARK

** FOREIGN-LANGUAGE NEWSPAPER PUBLISHERS FELT THAT AMERICA CARED, AMERICA WAS ON THEIR SIDE AND AMERICA WANTED THEM TO PROSPER AND BECAUSE OF THAT, THEY FELT OBLIGATED TO "RETURN IT", THE FAVOR THAT IS.THIS WAS THE ALLIANCE IN WHICH THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT GAINED CONTROL OF THE FOREIGN-LANGUAGE PRESS.
ORGANIZATION'S SUCH AS THE INTER-RACIAL COUNCIL PERSUADED IMMIGRANTS THROUGH THEIR USE OF PROPAGANDA-ADVERTISMENTS.
