Yes, there is. Does that make you feel better? But they might be too "assimilated" for your taste.

There doesn't seem to be much of an in-between. If so, where is it?

The Majority of the County? Like, I grew up in Central LA Every district has a large hispanic population around Los Angeles. Some are poor, some are not. It depends, Hispanics are the basically the majority of LA. They make LA, LA.

Anyways, here are some middle-upper middle class "Hispanic" areas of just one area of LA (meaning above 50%).

Mission Hills Profile - Mapping L.A. - Los Angeles Times
Mission Hills: 53% Hispanic, $75k median household income

Lake View Terrace Profile - Mapping L.A. - Los Angeles Times
Lake View Terrance: 53% Hispanic, $67k household income

Sylmar Profile - Mapping L.A. - Los Angeles Times
Sylmar: 69% Hispanic, $65k household income

No, but they're all sellouts or whatever. Keep changing the goalposts, my friend!

We already know L.A. County has a large Hispanic population. But only 10-11% have a college degree or higher. That's lower than the educational attainment rate among non-Hispanic Blacks in the city of Detroit.

I would say Miami and DC are the only cities I've been to where I've really met a lot of college-educated Hispanics (though the Hispanic % in DC is not that high). NYC is third. I thought the Bay Area would be higher but it's actually quite a bit lower than DC and Miami as far as educational attainment goes.

I don't believe DC is a gateway city for Hispanics which probably helps explain it's high % of educated Hispanics. Miami is but their relatively high level of education might have something to do with the demographics that came over from Cuba after the revolution there.

Why are people getting upset about this? Just curious and I think it is interesting to find out about such communities in order to destroy stereotypes, as well as to diversify the narrative.

I think it has to do with the notion that the lack of these communities b/c many middle and upper class Hispanics have assimilated into typical American middle/upper middle class communities is somehow "sad". I personally don't think it's "sad" at all that middle/upper middle class Hispanics choose not to segregate themselves in Hispanic enclaves. Segregating yourself into ethnic/racial middle/upper middle class communities doesn't seem the best way to "destroy stereotypes" imo either.

It's not "diversifying the narrative" if the only places you can diversify the narrative are places of "your own" ethnicity.

It's like we as minorities are supposed to feel bad for not living among our "own kind"

And to be frank, I think its insulting that the only true culture that exists is the culture of the poor. If you are somehow not in destitute poverty, it's "sad" because you have "assimilated" into mainstream American society.
