RENE CIRIA CRUZ
An Exile's Tale Part 2
Rene Ciria Cruz talks about his battle with cancer and how he struggled with the question: With the fight against dictatorship over, is it time for him to go home?

He also talks about his new role as an advocate for a rapidly-growing and increasingly important pillar of American journalism, the ethnic media. He cites the Hurricane Katrina disaster in which Korean and Vietnamese newspapers and radio stations played critical roles in helping immigrant communities.

Hello Boying,

Just a short comment...it is not only the "white Americans" who resist "cultural change" but also some immigrants themselves. We, Filipinos seem to "join in" and accept the so-called "American way. But others...not only resist but refuse to do so eventhough they immigrated here by choice. They have even set-up little communities such as "Little Havana", "Chinatown" and Vietnamese communities. Most people in these communities (though they have lived here for years) do not speak or speak very little English. Some never even wander off their "little world" if they can help it.....Chrissa V.
