I was born and raised here in Los Angeles, and have never seen either flag being waved. Where I live, one either sees the American or Mexican flag waving. As 2Pac said in "To Live and Die in L.A.," it wouldn't be L.A. without Mexicans.

The line just would of sounded different if he said
"Wouldn't be L.A, without Armenians"

I think it depends on where you go. I was in Glendale, known for it's large Armenian population. Alot of the hotel staff was Armenian. The Armenian consulate wasn't far away. However, no people flying the Armenian flag from their cars.

Mexican flags, I didn't see much of either. It depends on where you are. However, LA was once part of Mexico, so Tupac's song has some validity.

You were in Glendale when? In late April it was the Armenian Genocide Remembrance day , but generally you don't see flags year round.
This is similar to how might see the U.S flag around a holiday like 4th of July.
It seemed much more common to see them this year for some reason, not sure if this year had more significance or maybe organizations gave out a bunch of free flags,etc.

I'm not really thrilled by seeing any flag other than the US flag. I think you should assimilate to whatever country you're in. If Mexico or Armenia is so great then by all means show yourself the door then. I'm really not offended by them, I guess I'm just curious as to why they are here in the first place???

I've always wondered why I used to see Confederate Flags on the 20 or 75/85 in ATL but I never see them in NO. When I was in college we used to go to parties at Georgia Tech and we were warned to stay away from certain frats. Some of them had confederate flags draped from their windows. I never seen it in New Orleans though even though there is a big fuss right to to remove confederate monuments throughout the city.

My bad to hijack this thread. I honestly don't care if Armenians are proud to be Armenian.

What years did you grow up in the Atlanta area? I have never heard of GA Tech having Confederate-related frats. There was one at Kennesaw State in 2011.

Places I've seen the Confederate flag flown: Paulding County, and Douglas County.

As for New Orleans, that is a different city. Far different from Atlanta.
