As for the Black population, that too is a mixed bag. Yes, there are Black Americans, but you also have a thriving number of Belizeans, Ethiopians/Eritreans, Nigerians, and a sprinkle of Jamaicans (mostly found in the Leimert Park/Little Ethiopia areas).
The thread is "the iconic ethnic groups tied to your city," not "list every ethnic group that lives in your city, and don't forget to mention which groups are sprinkled in"

ok? Either way neither are iconic ethnic groups in SF anymore or have been for a very long time. Plus the Chinese have been in SF since the Gold Rush so I'm not sure that is even true.

who are those standouts in your city.

I'll give you my list for my home town, Chicago (in no particular order), as an example.

Chicago has always been associated with Germans, irish, Italians, Jews, Poles, Greeks, Blacks....much of those communities have melted down into the main stream, of course, but today i would definitely put Mexicans on the list.
As of recently I'd also put Asian-Indians on the list as well. Yeah there are a ton of people with German, Irish, and or Italian heritage, but these groups are pretty much in every city in large numbers. Poles and Greeks really stand out in the Chicago metro area for European heritages.

Yeah but the thing is that ALL of the ethnic groups they listed have a huge impact on the culture of LA (aside from the Nigerians and Jamaicans). Although I'm shocked they didn't mention Armenians. Overall Mexicans have the largest impact on LA .
