    Los Angeles 'is a Third World City'

    Los Angeles is becoming a "Third World city" with immigrants making up half its workforce, says a new study.

    A third of immigrants have not graduated from high school and 60 per cent do not speak English fluently, the Migration Policy Institute found.

    It said this left immigrants ill-equipped to fill California's fastest-growing occupations, such as computer software engineering and nursing. The organisation added that as the so-called baby boomers reach retirement age, a similar pattern will spread across the US.

    Ernesto Cortes Jr, of the Industrial Areas Foundation, a think-tank that specialises on social change, claimed Los Angeles was at a crossroads.

    "The question is are we going to be a 21st century city with shared prosperity, or a Third World city with an elite group on top and most on near poverty wages?" he said.

    I think the question is in the process of being answered.

    Further proof that people would rather be milk the system rather than be productive and assimilate. What's even scarier is by 2050 half the country will be inundated with immigrants. I'm guessing that 'immigrants' refers to the latinos, and if so, according to what I've read we don't need anymore uneducated/unskilled non-English speaking people here.

    I grew up in a Los Angeles suburb. Los Angeles is beyond all hope. It is a cesspool of humanity.

    Well for all cynicism, the Mexicans must truly feel at home since the city's name is already in Spanish, leaving it only to be renamed into "Los Angeles del Muerte" for a more fitting name, since it's become more of a multicultural hell than the "cosmopolitan haven" they have always claimed cities with such diverse demographic patterns would have. eyes:
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    South of the 8 Mile, Detroit is the same. Looked like Soweto. Save for the bizarre General Motors complex which is like a Caucasian oasis surrounded by blacks.

    One of America's problems is sprawl. Be better to have compact suburbs served by fewer, yet larger retail store / car workshops and so on. I don't know if it is too much or too little government intervention which causes this. In England you can typically walk from a shopping mall directly on to the historic high street, then just beyond the high st are the bars, sports stadia, then quickly, the residential dwellings. I now support measures to gently keep sprawl to a minimum, combined with investment in trains, underground metros, affordable bus routes.

    Southern California has always basically been a different country.

    In the US, any place served by public transit quickly becomes a multicultural cesspool, aside from sporadic islands where extremely high housing costs keep out the lower races.

    That is not the case in Portland or Boston. Cities need at least under or over ground trains/trams for the downtown core and a little beyond that. I don't see a problem with whites and blacks using the same public transport, so long as the transport is clean and well-policed then the whites will not feel uneasy or threatened. It's not healthy for people to be using their cars so much, not just for their own physical well-being, but for their connection with their surroundings.
