This paper compares and contrasts two stories that relate to the immigrant experience in Canada, and in particular how the authors challenge and then change the readers perspective about racial and ethnic stereotypes. The two stories chosen are an excerpt from "Itsuka", by Joy Kogawa, a Japanese Canadian writer, and "Grappling", by Vinita Srivastava, a Canadian writer of South Asian origin. The writer explains that the passage from "Itsuka" is a fictional story of a group of second generation Canadians experiencing the real historical event when the Government of Canada officially apologized to Japanese Canadians for the way that they were treated during World War II.
