  7. #TBT: This is just one of several signs seen in California in the late 1920s and 1930s. Another such sign read, "No Dogs or Filipinos Allowed." And yet another sign threatened towns that did not get rid of Filipinos. It was a tense time when Filipinos were made to feel unwelcome and were victims of racial violence. Anti-Filipino riots broke out in Exeter in the San Joaquin Valley, and in Watsonville, and even spilled over into other communities in California, such as Stockton. There were more anti-Filipino incidents outside of California around the same time, such as in Yakima, Washington. #fahm #fahm2014 #PAHM #filipino #filam #pilipino #pinoy #pinay #stockton #california #racism #racist #socialjustice #history #community #remember #watsonville #throwbackthursday #past #throwback #hate #washington #unitedstates #culture

  8. #TBT #KnowYourHSTRY by @maharlikanyc "When Filipinos came to the United States in the early 1900's, they had to compete against other ethnic groups to earn a living. Tensions grew between white Americans and Filipinos. White Americans blamed Filipinos for taking their women and their jobs. For this reason, many hotels, restaurants, and even swimming pools had signs that read "POSITIVELY NO FILIPINOS ALLOWED!" Sometimes they read, "NO DOGS ALLOWED!" This eventually lead to the passing of the Tydings-Mcduffie Act of 1934, which limited Filipino immigration to the U.S. to 50 per year.

  16. #fahm2014 #FilipinoAmericanHistoryMonth Let's honor all teachers - like @fanhs_national trustee #RayObispo of #virginiabeach. While teaching high school full-time, he has advised generations of youth in the #FilipinoAmerican #Cultural Society (#FACS ) of Salem High School for 20 years. Cheers to Ray and FACS!! Is there another high school organization in the US that has performed spoken word and dramatized oral history throughout the USA with the same adviser who hasn't  missed a beat in 20 years?They've also contributed to two oral history publications and at least two academic articles.  Inspiring example of building on cultural strengths and working with live for communities... Gratitude for all! Thanks to @vbplibrary for co-sponsoring the #FANHS Hampton Roads Chapter celebration organized by founder @allanlbergano @arncus and friends. Sharing happy news with @_keptabsorbed_ @kusinera @pinayism @kevinnadal @thatduderj @latinforthames @rpmuriera @robbonta
