RE: Why do the minorty thinks the majority is wrong
Houston is international in a way. An Hispanic way. The two major languages are Texan and Spanish. My cousin, dual citizen of Uruguay and USA, is an ESL teacher in Houston. being very fair and having a Scottish mother, her non-hispanic appearance belies her thoroughly South American culture. She loves the look on the faces of Tex-Mex parents when she speaks o them in her native version of tehir common language.
Miami-Dade is awesome. NOLA has a polyglot of languages and cultures. In addition to Mexicans, French, Germans, and Czechs (like E TX, but fishermen), NOLA east has an area called "Little Saigon" where you can get Chinese medicines, some of which are useful for people on the martial arts fringe (I mean herbal self-medication, nothing sinister). The languages spoken there are some Vietnames dialects and Laotian, which is also commonly spoken around here. We even have a Buddhist temple run by the Laotian community here. And a very large nrotehrn India community, mostly from one state and they have a common dialect, too. If you look anywhere in America, I believe you will find a large array of cultural enclaves slowly integrating--we own their kids and grandkids. You just have to look.
