I live in Los Angeles. The Chinese community is not a well-integrated lot. The recent immigrants do get along with the old-times. There are the Taiwanese who do not call themselves Chinese. Hongkongers stick to their Cantonese folks. Mainlanders have their own. Some rich Mainlanders whose wealth come from dubious sources do not mix with others. The vietnamese whose ancesters are Chinese have their own groupings. Not exactly a melting pot. Chinatown, San Gabriel Valley and Diamond Bar are three separate societies.
