I agree. I moved here on my own to escape LA. I'm not from there but I wanted to start over and someone asked if I ever thought of New York. I found a place that I could "afford" which of course is a joke but I didn't look for little California or anything.

Just watch, when Baidu announces it'll serve the American markets, that's when you know the future is here.

Absolutely, a practicing Hindu or a Hassidic Jew would have more religious needs than an atheist or barely observant Christian.

Ethnic needs would be grocery stores that serve a given immigrant group, such as an Indian grocery store.

I feel like you know this but are trying to be oppositional for fun.

Of course. I don't think US born people who are into urban cities are that different regardless of what part of the country they were born in

And the Midwest is far from homogenous anyway, Chicago is very diverse for instance.

Everything I said made perfect sense
You made perfect sense.

I think the talk about racial/ethnic issues is more hurtful to Seventh than he wants to acknowledge, and as the moderator he has to read this stuff when the rest of us if we are annoyed can just not post on City Data.

Also it's clear than the whole "transplant" thing is really that first or second generation Americans are jealous of white Americans who are much more mobile than they are, have higher levels of education, have more opportunities, etc.

But discussing those root problems seems to be difficult for people who would rather speak in code.

Observant Jews have to eat Kosher food, will need access to a synagogue, will want to make sure there are Jewish schools nearby, etc. Hindus may also want to be close to a Hindu temple, may want to eat Indian foods, etc.

Thank you. I find it hard to believe that he doesn't understand that a Hindu or Sikh Indian would have more specific ethnic related needs than an atheist or barely religious intra-US transplant.

Exactly!

Observant Jews most likely need to be walking distance from a synogogue, while a US born hipster transplant will likely have no needs other than having a convenient commute to work.

Quality of life is better than China and getting away from overbearing parents/studying abroad was the cool thing to do. Many of the chinese who arrive don't have much barriers in terms of getting a high paying job and immigrating via EB-2 process. America really likes to stick it to poor immigrants, but rolls out the carpet if you have money.
