Steve o, i really dont want to get into a statstic battle, but LA on a whole is way more diverse. I think you were just confused because outside of LA's massive barrios, and the few remaining black ghettos that havent pushed inland, LA doesnt have the block by block ethnic enclaves that chicago has.

The problem with LA, is most people get a hotel on hollywood boulivard, walk the strip, and declare LA cesspool. Its such a stereotypical trendy east of the mississippi toursit thing todo.

You obviously werent in bev. hills, where there is a massive persian population, or china town, infact i believe the LA metro area is home to a few cities that have a majority of asian americans, as well as hispanics.

You just dont see that AT ALL in chicagoland. You have to look past the european aspect of culture when you go to the west coast. Hispanics and asians have been immigrating to san fran and LA for almost aslong as euros have been going to new york and polish and italians to chicago.

And for the record most people dont see diversity as different european ethnic enclaves with in a city, thats usally called not assimilating. Whats same for the barrios goes the same for the euros.

Chicago and its suburbs have a sizeable Asian population, including a big Chinatown. The towns of Glendale Heights, Hoffman Estates, Elgin and Bloomingdale have alot of Asians (Laotians, Chinese, some Japanese, etc). Just curious why you think that?
