The liquor stores have detrimental effect and they blame ethnic groups from the Asian communities opening these businesses in their communities. 

The types of Sikhs that get hit by the black communities tend to be recent migrants who open these businesses and live in these communities. 

Eventually when these migrants become more established they move out of these areas.

100% true. Instead of learning the value of the hard work they feel jealous and those shop owners who ignore and focus on the hard work with risking their lives, they move to the next level and vast majority of their kids end up getting good education. However, this is the same attitude comes from both black/whites. 

I also believe that the system is making them unable to stand on their feet.

There are a lot of African Americans that have resentment towards other ethnic groups if they have certain types of businesses in the neighbourhoods like liquor stores.

I have friends that lived in Flushing in Queens. Flushing is mainly a Chinese area, my friend would rather pay several hundred bucks on rent to live here than somewhere like Jamaica Heights.

What people also need to realise New York is effectively a minority - majority city. There are not many WASP (White Anglo Saxon Protestant) living in New York.

The major white communities tend to be Jews, Italians and Irish.

Sikhs are predominantly in Queens and they are surrounded by mainly Hispanic, other Asians and blacks.

This reminds of this famous scene in Menace II Society 

Having visited America a couple of times, I would say the Hispanics are the most racist and rude. The blacks were the most friendly followed by the whites.

What's strange is that I've met a few really black loathing people from the UK who do business in the US (around NY and Miami) and whatever experiences they have had seems to have changed them. Now they say they can't stand black people but African-Americans are okay. lol! 

Might watch that film again btw. Haven't seen it in many years.

The Hispanics are a diverse group.

In Florida  (particularly South Florida), they are mainly Cuban.

In New York, they are mainly Puerto Ricans, Dominicans and Columbians and this varies depending in which borough you are in.

California and Texas, they are mainly Mexicans.

When I speak to my East Coast relatives, in their opinion the Hispanics are not bad bunch, quite family orientated but when they live with blacks, they pick up a lot of their mannerisms. 

I think it depends where in the US you go to.

When you mix with Americans and from different parts of the US, you come to realise the country is more like a continent. 

Even African Americans from different parts of the US are very different from each other. 

I went to both Los Angeles and New York.

I found the Mexicans in LA and Puerto Ricans equally as rude. My wife has been to Miami and said the Cubans were similar.

They just seem to have a really bad attitude. Even a Malaysian Indian I worked with who frequently flew to New York said you don't want a Hispanic guard at Immigration when you land, they will give you a hard time.

It would be like southall.........

My wife's from there. It's full of lunatic drivers and generally impatient people who have no regards to following laws.

There's no country with a South Asian majority that can be considered a first world country.

New Yorkers generally are quite a rude bunch. And that is New Yorkers of all ethnic groups.

Californians I find a lot more relaxed and laid back (generalisation here) compared to New Yorkers.

But your experience could because you were in the big cities. In the smaller cities and towns people tend to be friendlier. 

I myself had a bad experience at JFK airport, one with an African American and one with an Italian American.

    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway. 
    • Because Naamdharis are absolute masters at kirtan. Simple. On the topic of Akal Takht, it doesn't really hold the same authority as it did in the past. Just look at the people running it and you'll get what I mean. Most the panth, outside of stuff like Tankhaya, don't care about anything they have to say.
