Dig at my hometown

I was reading a story about Chino Hills and how the old school residents are all freaked out at the Asian invasion. Hey, I’m not being offensive, I’m just telling it like it is. Please don’t get me fired.

Anyway, I was reading it with interest, as a graduate in Asian American studies should, when I stopped and got sidetracked by this graf:

“My worry is that 99 Ranch could be a steppingstone for it to become all Asian,” he said. “I don’t want another Hacienda Heights.”

What the heck is wrong with Hacienda Heights?! I grew up there. Hey man, at least Hacienda Heights doesn’t perpetually smell like manure and isn’t dotted with cookie-cutter houses. Sheesh.

I really don’t see what the big deal is, though. In my experience, 99 Ranch Markets are as clean as any heavily-trafficked market, plus they have great deals on fresh fruit, vegetables, and most importantly, seafood. What’s the problem? Dude, I wish we had an Asian market somewhere nearby – the alternatives in Agoura Hills to Ralphs or Vons is a kosher market. Not that I don’t have use for kosher, but they don’t carry dried mangoes or sinigang mix. *sigh*

One thought on “Dig at my hometown

  1. I wonder why people feel so threatened by a race other than their own? It would be a treat having an Asian market in my neighborhood; I like a little something different now and then.

    I live in the Village at San Dimas, and we are the melting pot of races in San Dimas, the children are colorblind to this fact as they play together in the streets. Our children and grandchildren mirror us, so treat one race differently and your legacy will follow you beyond the grave.

    If you know me your aware I prefer women of color, and this does not always go over well with strangers, judging by the stares my mates and I receive while running the streets in my area.

    But knowing my sense of humor, I generally give the oglers something to stare at with public displays of affection, because they wish they were in my shoes.
