Do business with a Hindi small business owner from time to time. We chat about various things. I once asked why the Hindi community, (significant in my area), did not get together to start a Diwali (festival of lights), he responded, "Why? We are here."

Think he was thinking along the melting pot line. At least that is how I took it. Why not enjoy our communities as they are? No need to 'create' something as another poster commented.

As for me, "Chinatowns" are where tourists go for inauthentic, authenticity.

The Jonesboro Road corridor coming out of Southeast Atlanta at 285 DOES have a lot of Vietnamese influence as it heads south through the northeast Clayton County towns of Forest Park, Lake City, and Morrow. The second largest ethnic group in Morrow is Asian, I think; they have both a Vietnamese American city council woman and Vietnamese police officers. The northern tier of this corridor in Forest Park closer to Atlanta City limits is also beginning to get a Hispanic vibe more so in the last few years; Hispanics make up a large portion of the City of Forest Park and adjacent Conley. Hispanics are the plurality ethnic group, or close to a plurality at Forest Park High, which pulls from Forest Park, Conley, and large parts of Lake City and Morrow.

Just think it will add more to the city to see something like this come into works.
No, We dont really need one.
