Nannannie: It is a class of cultures. I have a cousin that has recently retired from teaching in the Sac area and found it to be disturbing. Young girls (Elementry to Jr High) girls leaving(or being pulled from school) because they had been promised in marriage from birth. Females with an education are still not considered to be of value. I could go on and on, but I won't.... It just sad....

Tanksmom, its only your cousin's call about Hmong girls....please do some research first before you make such accusation. How many Hmong children you saw or known that have been dragged out of classrooms to be forced to marry huh? None, i bet, right? Its all misjudged or blown out of proportion! I am an educator, that's not true at all. oh...there is nothing promised from birth...so please don't be mislead by that!!!!

Furthermore, if your so-called cousin teacher knew that was true how come he didn't call the police? If it was true, she/he would called the police already, otherwise he might lose his/her teaching credental too. So...if /she/he didn't call, then she/he was lying. IN addition, she/he didn't know anything about Hmong people, so please don't talk about others if you don't know enough about them. oh and one more thing, every group of people has their own culture...that's a fact!!!!!

Finally, I want to remind you that we have laws in this country to protect are youngs. Obviously you don't know us at all.

I don't know how many are in the Sacramento area. It was supposed to be 15,000, but a large number of them left for areas where there is a larger Hmong community, like Fresno.

Most of them originally settled in Lemon Hill. I don't think they have spread out too much in the Sacramento area, but moved away instead., The generation that has grown up here has managed to open a few businesses along Stockton Blvd in that area. I've met a few at Sacramento City College who are as American as any second, third, or fourth generation Japanese-American.

Yes, there were problems in California. Some very backwards problems. Hunting wasn't so much of a problem because they settled in very urban areas in California. When I lived in Fresno I went on a ride-along with the city code enforcement, which was basically the same type of thing people do with the police department. Things like raising chickens, sometimes other livestock, in town was common. I don't have much of an issue with people owning chickens in town as long as they make an attempt to prevent them from eating my garden. However, larger livestock can be a nuisance in city environments. They often allowed the chickens and animals in the houses, which were often poorly maintained by slumlords, and many times the Hmong contributed to the damage in their homes. There was a huge disconnect between the how they did things and how Americans did things, and for some reason it was impossible to get the point across to many of them.

Since they were in an urban environment it led to a problem with some of the kids getting into trouble. For a time there was a section of Valeria St in Central Fresno where they were involved in quite a bit of shootings. That problem isn't nearly as bad today.
