Why are non white immigrants allowed to invade once white neighborhoods?

Mostly the Asians, Why are they allowed to come as they please and take white neighborhoods and turn them into they're own. Little Italy and Flushing just a few examples.

I'd also like to understand what specific demographic change he is alluding to in that specific 60 year period (I assume he meant from 1950 to 2010?)

Some are afraid of change, but NYC is not the place to be if you don't like change. This is the melting pot of the world, I think it's great - especially in Queens. There's lots of really good and interesting people here. Makes us better by far, not worse

He posted from the most unlike-NYC place in the US you could imagine.

Laguna Niguel. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laguna_Niguel)

The connection is corporate, maybe T1, so he either works or lives there, or both. Seems to have a problem with Asians. The mayor's name is Robert Ming, but he doesn't look like the ethnic Asian this guy is complaining about.

I grew up in Flushing. I left in 1975 Not many Asians. I came back in 2007 and was majority Asian. Wasn't expecting to see a China Town. When I left whites were Majority. I here they're doing this all around the city. Taking once white neighborhoods and making them their own. When I visited I went to Littly Italy, I knew itwas a tourist trap but was surpised how little of it is actually left. If your white you don't care that they're taking the city and making it own? NYC. I miss the good old days where you would look down the street and see a sea of white faces. A place where everyone in the neighborhood knew each other. The best of times and the worst of times.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you don't have any Asian friends, lol. There's a lot of loaded statements here -

But the thing you're talking about "taking over and making their own" has been happening in NYC for generations. The Italians, Irish, Germans, Jews, (and yes the Chinese) moved in to neighborhoods in large numbers and displaced the previous populations. Italians used to be a disparaged ethnic group, yet here you are lamenting their disappearance in Little Italy

What you're not seeing, is that "these Asians" are actually assimilating quite well. The older generations may not speak much english but their kids all attend American schools, learn English as an every day language, and mingle with white kids and kids from all races. By the time they're in high school & college, they are just as american as you even if they don't look like the people you grew up with.

"I miss the good old days where you would look down the street and see a sea of white faces" - you need to get over that, what does it matter what people look like? If you just took a little effort to get over your prejudices and maybe talk to some of these people, you'd find out that they're just regular people like everyone else trying to make it through life and you might have a better perspective on things.

Overall, I don't see how anyone can argue that NYC was a better place in 1975.

Doubt anyone posting on this forum is white.Unlike you, no one on this forum is obsessed with race, so we can't make an educated statement on its makeup; it may come up in other issues. But I can understand why you want to believe that we're all non-white; that there are white people who don't think like you wouldn't fit your us-vs-them model.

I guess you would consider me white; my ancestors arrived here from Italy over a century ago. How white would you have considered them? What about my parents - sort of white? Are my children more white than me?

Where are your ancestors from, and when did they arrive here?

Ever look at yourself in a mirror and consider who you are, what sort of person is staring back at you? I am White or I am Asian wouldn't be important to me; I am a thief or I am honest would be. You've chosen to define your individuality as - "I am White."

I can describe to you what it means to say "I am honest." What does it mean when you (as an individual) say "I am White".

Mike don't forget, when the Italians "invaded" Little Italy, the same thing was thought by the previous residents, and the Italians were treated like crap. So were the Jews and the Irish. Bigotry and growing pains. This country's always had them and unfortunately probably always will, but it's not unique to us, you can blame humanity's failings for that.

PS: We can't afford to live in our own separate tribes anymore. If that bothers you to the point of blind rage, this town might be right up your alley.

Don't really understand what your asking. When it comes to whites we don't have a "heritage" as a race alone. Our heritage comes from where we track our ancestry from. White people in this country don't have a heritage together. We have just always been the dominat race in the country. I mean when you think about it whites built this country. We were the the majority and everything was done our way. The WHITE way. Today it just isn't.

Don't really understand what your asking. When it comes to whites we don't have a "heritage" as a race alone. Our heritage comes from where we track our ancestry from. White people in this country don't have a heritage together.It's really simple. If you're talking about a white group banding together against the others [Asians, Hispanics, etc], I want to know what it is about your group that would make me want to join. Don't say it's because we're white.

When my grandparents came here, they wound up in ethnic enclaves like Little Italy because of the commonality of culture and problems - as Italians, not Whites. When they became comfortable with American society, they bought a house in Brooklyn, and became citizens. And they were subject to discrimination by the Whites that were already here.


We have just always been the dominat race in the country. I mean when you think about it whites built this country. We were the the majority and everything was done our way. The WHITE way.So the German-White way was was the same as the Irish-White way, the same as the Dutch-White way? The Catholic-White way, Protestant-White way, Jewish-White way - all the same? Check the history books.

And what do you mean by we? My family had nothing at all to do with this country before the 20th century. Yours nothing before 1959.


You already know im not going to convince you on anything, and i'm not quite sure why you asked.To find out what you're all about, why you are the way you are. So far all you've shown is illogical bigotry.

And if you really think only whites built the USA then you need to do some reading up on history.

And it wouldn't hurt to dig into why the Dutch lost this colony, too.

In Flushing's case, the local politicians saw heavy white-flight out to long island, and the incoming replacement resident group was shaping up to be black & hispanic. Well, they didnt want that, so they decided to make the place inviting to asian groups, who they saw as the lesser of two evils.

I have confidence I can accurately state 3 other views of yours from this post alone

1) The World Trade Center attack had assistance from the Israeli government & Mossad
2) Barack Obama was not actually born in the United States and he an illegitimate president
3) Global Warming is a fabrication invented to scare you into giving up your car
