Buddhists., Hindus, and Sikhs in America a kids’ book.

I’m reading a book I found in the children’s section of the library, Buddhists, Hindus, and Sikhs in America. I had read in Spiritual Awakening by Darshan Singh that Sikhs eat meat. They are not the spiritual Sikhs he said. It was in a chapter on Vegetarianism.

Oh, there has been so much discrimination, the book says, against Buddhists. They were denied citizenship as they were non-white. Isn’t that a killer? It happened in California where they were excited to emigrating because gold, of course had been discovered there. The Chinese called California “Gam Saan, ‘Gold Mountain’ referring especially to the dicovery of gold at Sutter’s mil in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas that year.” That was 1848. Between 1840 and 1900 2.5 million people left China. In 1849 just 55 Chinesse lived in Califronia, only 5 years later there were 40,000.

This is a good book by Gurinder Singh Mann, Paul David Numrich & Ramond B. Williams.
