At the parks I play ball at the overwhelming majority of people under 18 are Oriental. Almost everyone older than 25 is some other ethnicity usually Hispanic or some minority European ethnicity. The two groups seem to get along well enough. All things considered American culture is Oriental in nature with it's fixation on materialism, acceptance of all sorts of vice and exploitation as freedom. To the credit of the Asians their culture includes a devotion to family which is a positive among the selfish and individualistic Americans. I'm not sure if their presence is a bad thing or good thing; what is sure is that change will happen. There are billions of these people in Asia so they have the potential of inundating and converting most of Queens into an outpost of Oriental culture. With their number back home they have the potential to inundate and demographically dominate any area.

It seems that all things Oriental have the potential to move in, reproduce, out number and then take over the native species. The common thread is "Crowds out native species". You can find similar stories with fish, beetles and now working class neighborhoods. Now you know how the native Catfish feel.

It is quite disturbing to see that we are getting inundated with a WAVE of Chinese migration that has not been seen ANYWHERE in the world. The neighborhoods are being literally invaded by those newcomers. I keep seeing entire building being settled by them and to compliment it all, new construction "popping-up" with flimsy workmanship being errected with 100% Chinese ownership. Single and double family homes are also sold to them - you can see the ugly metal door cages they install for protection. Forest Hills Gardens is also effected with natives running for "cover" by selling asap. Some of the streets in the morning are 100% Chinatown-like. Believe it or not, its amazing to see Queens degenerating into this Asian hell. Overcrowding, lack of aesthetics, lack of culture and just plain degradation of quality of life is threatening to make Queens into a social experiment that is out of control. Schools no longer cater to teach social values or arts but are overcrowded with ambitious Asian children that promote mindless competition with Confuscian obedience and test-taking preparation. Chinese values are not about being smart but to get ahead at any cost. At the same time there is lack of zoning enforcement with Queens being eaten by Mall-building and lack of space. With all the construction there is a threatening lack of space for recreation or greenery.

I am not so sure about Americans being overly materialistic or selfish. I tend to disagree strongly with this statement. Have you ever been outside of NYC where there Americans are still a majority ? I have traveled all over the world and have never seen any population that is so caring for others than your average American. Yes, there are bad "apples" but nowhere near as bad as I have seen in other countries where nationalism, xenophobia and lawlessness knows no bounds. If you have been to anywhere outside ghetto or an overpopulated immigrant communities of large cities, you would see a lot of caring and unselfish people. Go to any small New England town, even in upstate NY. Americans traditionally care about the community they live-in and have created more charitable organizations than anyone can imagine. If you ever been is some other places of the world, some even will not pave a road if its outside of their domain.Perhaps you are confusing capitalist economic system with personal behavior ? Asians tend NOT to care about anyone outside their family due to historical lack of democratic government and stable society which provided communal employment or safety - perhaps only in Japan. Asians and most other newcomers have no respect for anything but a short-term vision of personal enrichment. They tend to disregard or break any laws if opportunity is there. They will dump garbage, create unnecessary business zones, corrupt officials for permits, buy entrance school exams,etc.

It never ceases to amaze me when I see white people from the outer boroughs (of which I am one) leave the old neighborhood--and then complain that the old neighborhood is no longer white. Huh? I also don't think the (mostly) hard-working immigrants who replace the whites who fled the area deserve the be maligned: they populated the neighborhoods others fled, and keep them from becoming abandoned wastelands.....

"Americans traditionally care about the community they live-in and have created more charitable organizations than anyone can imagine."

More large international charities were started in Europe, specifically Britain, than in America.
