The everyday experiences of Dr. Ronald Takaki(which reveal he is viewed by many as not American) versus those of my spouse’s Italian family members expose that in the twenty-first century USA. being seen as white continues to impact whether or not one is viewed and treated as American.



Dr. Takaki and others of Japanese descent remain outside of the current construct of white, while Italians in the USA have been folded into it. Because immigration and naturalization law and policy have worked to create a “white equals American” equation, those who are viewed as white are likely to be likewise viewed as American. This history reveals that being seen as American has had little to do with how long one’s family has been in the USA or how much one’s family has contributed to the educational, business, military or any other success the USA can claim.

Portrait of a Lady (c.1895). Thomas Wilmer Dewing (American, 1851-1938). Oil on canvas. Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Mollie Chatfield came to be known as a classic ​“Dewing girl,” a type described in a Boston paper as ​“intellectual enough to be worthy of Boston, aristocratic enough to be worthy of Philadelphia, well dressed enough to be a New Yorker but seldom pretty enough to evoke the thought of Baltimore.” Dewing showed her with a flirtatious sideward glance, lips slightly parted, and one hand resting self-consciously over her breast. This provocative pose hints at the romantic relationship between artist and model. Dewing’s patron Charles Lang Freer helped the artist keep his affair with Chatfield hidden from his wife, Maria Oakey Dewing.
