I agree. There’s nothing wrong with people wanting to live with others of the same ethnicity, race or color. The threats and the discrimination imposed of them to leave the are is. We could say then, under that assumption that Chinatown, by itself, it’s very discriminatory. “only Chinese live there…if you know what I mean”.
I don’t think White Americans or any other races are that racist.
If you look at the current situation in this country, all things are possible. We are seeing the increase of violence against any minorities or the increase of tensions among the same Americans because there’s nobody in government taking notice. Whoever is in power, is not paying attention but to his own ego.
Oh…wow! Finally, you decided to tell the truth about liberals. You are always saying liberals are being what? Socialists=Communists?
Thanks to those “liberals” you so much disparage whenever you can without knowing why, well, you are here in this country because they believed in “DIVERSITY”. The end!
Remember that discrimination and racism also have their origins on the fact that cheap labor was needed, hence the slave trade, and the coming of all nationalities and races to the US. That provoked the birth of so much discrimination, to the fact that not even the White Irish people escaped the stupid discrimination where it was wide accepted that no Irish were allowed to rent a room, but they would accept dogs in them.
Look at how many Japantowns, Chinatowns, Mexicans this, and whatever that are there in this country. Why? Because when you are an immigrant, you are new to anything and the first thing you salute is the amicable conversation with somebody from your own race or language. That was the reason of Chinatown being born in SF. They were facing lost of discrimination and racism. What better than stay together, and defend and console themselves together?
Not long ago I read you guys calling names or saying names to each other. Well, racism and discrimination exists in every country and nationality or race. Back in Guatemala, calling each other “indio” (Indian=native) was like saying don’t be an idiot. The funny side of that was to hear the same “indios” saying that. And that’s a big LOL. My first English teacher, from whom I learned I am, he is, she is, was a Black guy born in Belize, living since childhood in Guatemala. Any black people were seen as inferior, as if they were stupid, and I confess, I played that game, shame on me.
Except that over here we pay dearly if we discriminate or apply racism over anyone.
So, to those complainers in chief here, be thankful you live in a diverse area or state. You won’t see the same preference or respect in any other states, believe me, people from different races tell me how it goes “over there”, and it’s not that pretty nor funny. It’s not the end of the world, buy you feel “something”.
