Why do so many cities have a "Chinatown", but none have a AfghanTown ,JapanTown,ArabTown,AfricaTown,IrakTown,and so on ?
Like many other communities, the older Chinatowns have their share of social problems. Although Chinatowns are now generally viewed and valued as tourist attractions, their earlier reputation was that of dangerous or dilapidated ghettos and slums, sites of brothels, opium dens, and gambling halls ruled by the Triads .
We all know that the chinese have a very closed community and they dont interact with natives of the countries where they have their precious ChinaTown.
Also in the prisions of al mayor countries you rarely see a chinese.
So i was wondering now with all that is going on in the world.
How dangerous are they ?
We talk about integration of muslims in europe for example ,but nobody talks about the ChinaTowns that are present in every mayor city around the world.
I know for a fact that the buildings in the China Towns are owned by the Triads and this criminal organization has all sorts layers that go all the way to governments ,big ( legal )corporations and so fort..
here is a piece of the wiki about :
Triads are also active in other regions with significant overseas Chinese populations, apart from the Chinese mainland, Macau, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Triads are known to be operating in countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Argentina. They are often involved in helping immigrants enter countries illegally. Shanty & Mishra (2007) estimate that annual profits from narcotics is $200 billion; revenues from human trafficking into Europe and the United States are believed to amount to $3.5 billion per year.
Triad (underground society)
Chinese mafia’s “state within a state”
So how Power Full are They ?
And should we not put a stop to this?
