How hard is it to look up facts:
The racial/ethnic/cultural composition of Los Angeles as of the 2005-2009 American Community Survey was as follows:
White: 41.3% (Non-Hispanic Whites: 29.4%)
Hispanic or Latino (of any race): 47.5%
Black or African American: 9.8%
Native American: 0.5%
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander: 0.2%
Two or more races: 2.8%
Wow that's nuts.
Here in NYC you have a mass influx of other cultures also, namely Chinese and Korean. You have one particular neighborhood that has so many Koreans that many of the store front signs are written in only Korean. I am with you bud.. once you go so far where you do not even make the sign in English.. well it's not right and shouldn't be allowed.
I am sure some of the older white folk in these neighborhoods (who lived here a long time) feel alienated in their own neighborhood, as you have more Asians here than any other race, upwards of 75% in this particular neighborhood.

Los Angeles hasn't gotten to the point where NOBODY is even on the same page anymore.
Asian Illegals have their own culture and they're insulated. Armenians have their insulated culture and don't go outside of it. The fresh over the border Hispanics do the same...but they're the most aggressive, entitled, and they're taking over by sheer numbers as the majority.
And I'm seeing it's just getting more and more until I feel Los Angeles may be majority Illegal Aliens soon. I dunno how much of this place is an underground economy, where these people get their papers to work, or what's going on. I'm starting to think L.A. is one big scam, one big fraud with no real economic model to even look at.
I don't see how this place is surviving. And I have a feeling the Governments are lying because they don't want us to know just HOW bad it is. But I had a real glimpse last week and it was shocking.

You know - in Canada a lot of the citizens speak two languages; in Switzerland, most speak four. Most of the rest of the world is bilingual.
I'm ashamed that I don't speak Spanish better (espcially since my Mom spoke 4 languages fluently and my daughter three).

It would be damn near impossible to stop the jobs. It's called capitalism and maximizing profits by exploiting low wage workers. How do you stop that?
the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group.

sad to say, that's how it works. not to long ago i could walk onto any job site and run heavy equipment for minimum 20 bucks an hour, even up to 30+.
now i'm offered 9 or so, i gave up even trying, i've had employers literally say things like, 'but that' s what we pay the migrants/illegals.'
now one needs to go to alaska or north dakota for those kinds of wages.

As human beings, every single one of us is a "native."
The earth belongs to no man, each is "indigenous" and responsible for acting as a caretaker.
There are only two paths that separate us, the path of to take and serve one's self or the path of to give and serve one's fellow man.
Americans have very generous souls who donate to poor Countries, who are there for their own poor and needy. But they aren't a doormat for people to take advantage of through breaking laws and being rewarded. If we had open borders everywhere, there would be no health checks, no background checks. By not enforcing laws, we have had murderers, pedophiles, thieves, gang members etc. come across the border. There is just so much we can give. People now can barely afford to care for themselves.

How do we begin to define "foreign language" in a country with no official language? Serious question.

There is a concerted conspiracy to destroy our nation. You saw it in action.

Where in Los Angeles are you speaking of?
Many of the streets in Los Angeles are Spanish names. Ever heard of Olvera Street?
Los Angeles had ethnic neighborhoods (just like New York). Mexicans had their area, Blacks had their area, Asians had their area, Whites had their area, Jews had their area etc.
And for the most part they all stayed in their own areas. But, not today.
The only difference I see today is ---- they live where ever they want.
