Rise Of The Ethnoburbs
Instead of diluting the ethnic presence, the rise of the ethnoburb has actually made ethnic minorities more visible. It's also been accompanied by the appearance of the suburban immigrant ghetto.
"Suburbs are bland, right? Theyre boring, monotonous, devoid of life and culture: homogeneous.
Nope. Not on the last count, at least. Suburbia is becoming increasingly diverse. More and more middle-class immigrants are skipping traditional ethnic enclaves and heading straight for the boonies, where strip malls are now filled with ethnic businesses, bubble-tea parlours dot the landscape and schools fill up with kids from any number of different backgrounds. Forget suburbia; this is ethnoburbia."
