Abstract:The experiences of Vietnamese American youth gang members need to be considered in order to theorize racialization and clans formation in a changing world. There are material and ideological consequences for Vietnamese and Asian American youth gang formation in Southern California, including local, state, and national policy implications. A major concern is around the politics of deportation and question of citizenship. By understanding the political economy of racism, migration, and schooling---historically, contextually, and comparatively---this project, fundamentally, attempts to restore and recover our collective humanity.
