Many Americans overlook the contributions of the Chinese. Without the Chinese, America would not be what it is today (good or bad). The Chinese labor was critical to the building of the transcontinetal railroad. They took the most dangerious jobs and got little recongnition and pay (compared to white workers). They did such a good job, that the owners decided to hire as much Chinese people they could find.
Later America (to show its thanks) enacted laws to limit immigration of Chinese fearing a "yellow threat".

We also gave you Bruce Lee

A simple "thank you" will do

That story is the same as all migrants, irish, germans, and blacks at one point.

And despite hard labour for the railroads, which are irrelevant in the US anyway, amid all the flight traffic,
the chinese were unlike aside from the blacks also irish, germans, etc. never really traded standing under official slave status, were they?

Open the letter from American Express.

Problem solved.
