Post some pics of different ethnic neighborhoods in your community. Little Italy, Little Odessa, Chinatown... you get the point.





I'll go first with pics my recent trip to Omaha. These pics were all taken 2 weeks ago on S. 24th St aka "SoMa". It's a latino neighborhood, YES in Nebraska, so get over it haters. I only walked about 2 blocks otherwise I would of took more.

What does "ethnic" neighborhood mean? Non-white? Many Latinos are white.

So then by that definition, anything would be "ethnic" because everyone has some ethnicity.
BTW, ethnicity can mean race as well.

Alright...here's a black neighborhood in Pittsburgh. Used to be one the densest neighborhoods in the country. It used to be a Jewish neighborhood, but became a black center of Jazz, and was once called the "Crossroads" and "The Last Stop Between NYC and Chicago."

So then why be redundant? Why add the term "ethnic" if all you meant to say was "display pictures of any neighborhood"?

It's not that difficult a concept. For me, and for most of us I assume, ethnic neighborhood means a neighborhood that is dominated by a people of a certain ethnicity. Most neighborhoods in US metro areas are not dominated by a single thnic group, thus, are not ethnic. You just gave us a good example of one: used to be Jewish, is now black. When the area gentrifies, blacks no longer dominate, and neither do the ethnicities of the in-migrant group, it ceases to become ethnic.
