The paper compares and contrasts two short stories that depict the anxiety of multicultural ethnic immigrant communities in America. The paper looks at how Jen reveals the anxiety of a Chinese girl named Mona that has to constantly struggle with her identity, as she falls in love with a Japanese boy. The paper shows how the racism that inherently is part of divided ethnic groups in these stories is very similar, as Candelaria's young narrator is often thrust between the world of a racist white hegemonic culture and that of his own native Spanish culture.
