Example text

1. The “Ethnicity–Nation” Continuum. There are important differences between ethnic groups, which are characterized by distinct cultural traditions and histories, and nations, which are political entities tied to a more or less stable territory. However, there is no impassable gulf between “an ethnic group” and “a nation”. With changes in the internal and external conditions, an “ethnic group” and a “nation” are transferable. Between the “pure” cultural group (a minority group) and the “pure” political entity (state) that can be considered as two “idea types” in ethnic relations, there is a continuum with numerous points or steps of transitions (see Fig.

G. interracial adaptation). S. has emphasized “pluralism” in dealing with racial and ethnic relations. “Pluralism”, of course, does not indicate any form of division by ethnic groups, either politically or geographically. Instead, American “pluralism” is overseen by a strong unified political entity at both the federal and state levels. Although the government sanctions the establishment of ethnically based, inclusive informal cultural organizations, the setting up of racial/ethnic-exclusive organizations with tendencies towards political and economic “self-determination” is prohibited.

Also, in cases where the government was mistaken in a previous status allocation in the 1950s, then the relevant person might like to apply for “correction” of his/her status, in order to obtain some benefits assigned to minorities. 15 The institutionalization of ethnic groups systematically creates institutional barriers for the interaction and integration between the members of different ethnic groups. This official system always reminds them that they belong to “a specific group”. Clarifying the boundaries between ethnic groups and fixing the “membership” of each ethnic group makes the ethnic boundaries become a social issue, and when the ethnic status is related to some favorable or discriminatory policies, ethnic boundaries will become a political issue.
