The American Empire

“There are more Koreans in California than any place outside of Seoul and more people of Mexican ancestry in Los Angeles than in any community other than Mexico City. The Golden State is seen by some as a tremulous new world where everyone is a minority. At Hollywood High School, eighty languages are spoken.”
from this book:
Lasso the Wind

I have come to see America in general as an empire for everyone else. They can send their people here to prospers and be pioneers to this day, and they do. The quote above exemplifies that to me.

Also: There are more Tongans and Somoans in California than in Tonga and Samoa, think about that.
