Again, he always speak ill of Armenians. Why do you think someone else asked why he has a problem with Armenians? It's because he's brought up issues multiple times. Visit here more often and you'll see.
Yes, I rarely post but I do often read others' posts which is kinda why I don't post often.

He stated he lived in where there was a large Armenian population so he naturally was exposed to them frequently and/or he might be biased because of that. Then again, you might be Armenian and that was why you were being so defensive?


On a separate discussion:
Wth does "non-Latino/Hispanic White" mean exactly?

I thought, if you are White, that'd automatically mean you are not Latino/Black/Asian!

Latino is not a race, but rather a cultural grouping, so therefore a Latino could ve white (like that boxer Canelo). However, most Latinos in LA are mestizo.

Why does a lot of people not get this? The problem is that a lot of immigrants don't assimilate. It's because they have more pride in their own country than America! Why not have both flags? And for you multicultural lovers why is for the most part everyone sticks with "their own". Of course there are exceptions to this but most people stay with their own people and culture so what's the benefit? Or does it just look good to see a bunch of diffrent ethnicities walking around?

This is my point. We have a generation of immigrants who want to come here to reap the benefits that generations of Americans have died for but they don't want to assimilate. They don't want to be a part of our culture and they are basically using us. The Armenians are just one example that is right in my face every day.

What is this "culture"? The only singular "American Culture" that I've seen is money and corporations. Other than that, I've mainly noticed different cultures, different enclaves representing different people. All holding their flags.

All people that died for this country weren't originating of one country. You know what happens when a neighborhood gets Americanized? Starbucks, Walmart and Bloomingdales.

They need SOMETHING to be proud of ever since the kardashians became popular

I don't know if Armenians would even claim the Kardashians since they aren't full Armenian

Yes, he lives in Glendale. Here's the thing he was renting a house in Glendale and the owner sold it, so what does he do? He rents an apartment in Glendale and continues to live there for a few more years.

Wouldn't the logical thing be to move out of Glendale? You have Montrose, Eagle Rock both close by. Burbank, on the other side. You rent, it gives you the freedom to move to another area not so heavily populated with people you don't like being around.

It's kind of like saying Italian food gives me indigestion, yet you go to an Italian restaurant once a week.

OP did buy a condo in Santa Clarita, so he will be out of Glendale soon enough. Which IMO should make one happy, and not even let behavior of people who I won't be seeing as much bother me. I would be smiling thinking soon enough all of this will be behind me.

Kind of like whining about your current boss when you just got a new job and gave your two weeks notice.

The reason it's OK for them to display those flags is because we have the First Amendment.
