judgments emerge in interactions between the Hmong American community
After four decades of residence in the U.S., adolescent pregnancy remains prevalent in the Hmong American community. In Minnesota, where Hmong Americans represent the majority of the Asian American population (Pfeifer, Sullivan, Yang, & Yang, 2012), the Asian American adolescent birth rate (40.6 per 1,000) is three times the national average (14.6 per 1,000; Folker, 2012).
Three years later, Law Professor Leonard Kaplan at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, citing Vang's case, charged that ""Hmong men have no talent other than to kill" and "All second-generation Hmong end up in gangs and other criminal activity." Kaplan's remarks prompted outrage and protest from the Hmong American community (Penzenstadler, 2007).
Given that GVP's influence was based on rational (that is, professional), charismatic, and traditional authority, it is reasonable to investigate institutions in the Hmong American community that also provide these forms of authority.
Before that date the articles were still probing the facts of what happened and its meaning for various groups, such as the Hmong American community in St.
Similar to real estate brokerage firms and personal care agencies, law offices, chiropractic clinics, and grocery stores face the challenge of only being able to serve people from the Hmong American community. Along this same line of establishing entities to serve Hmong Americans is the creation of Hmong-focused charter schools.
Through doing empirical research with the Hmong American community, I have learned much about the politics of knowledge production.
Despite these admitted limitations to the present study, it is the author's hope that future researchers will find the data and analysis presented here useful for understanding of the ongoing evolution of Hmong organizations as well as the structure of Hmong American community life more generally.
This section also presents some new and pressing questions on the implications of these constantly remade and shifting forms of Hmong identity for the Hmong American community and America more broadly.

Since the Hmong American community is relatively small and expectations for children are high, Hmong students have multiple pressures to do well culturally and academically.
Infuriating as this has been, there are nonetheless those in the Hmong American community who defend Sue's words and the line-up of dysfunctional male characters on the grounds that they allude to a serious issue in the Hmong diaspora--that is the severe deficit of male "role models" in the migrant population.
