Chinese in America

Newcomers Have the Numbers to Upend City Politics from the NY Times, about how immigration in NY is changing the politics.

Interesting quote:

while some of those who immigrated from China tend not to understand multiparty politics, the project found.

The Chinese community in the US is a sleeping giant politically, the challenge is they are so diverse. The only thing I see they have in common is respect for education and food. Politics, language, income, etc. have a huge amount of difference. What does a fifth generation person who's ancestors came over in the Gold Rush have in common with a person who arrived from China on a 747 a couple of months ago?
