I don’t understand why every major city has a “Chinatown”, while no other ethnicities are awarded “towns” consistently. Just to be clear, I have nothing against Chinatowns. I love Chinatowns. I’ll visit and slurp a bubble tea like a Chinese gentleman. But what about other ethnicities? Don’t they feel underrepresented? I would love to walk around several square blocks of Little India in the middle of Chicago. Or perhaps a neighborhood in downtown Miami simply referred to as the “Pakistan Sector”. But nope. Just Chinatowns everywhere I go. With all the love we give to China, they better have a network of America Districts in all of their major cities. You know, a place where an expat would feel at home with the likes of Abercrombie and Fitch and Shake Weights and spicy tuna rolls.
The Chinese Have A Home, No Matter Where They Go
