Here in Brussels, the two most "visible" minorities are Moroccans and Poles. The city can be roughly described as Moroccan in the north and Polish in the south, although members of these communities can of course be found all over the city. Both nations maintain numerous schools, churches/mosques, shops, libraries, restaurants, cultural centers, and of course, airlines. Although the French are in fact the largest minority in the city, they blend in perfectly, much like Canadians in the US, and hardly anyone considers them a minority.
In San José, it's the Nicaraguans. Costa Rica in general has the biggest Nicaraguan ex-pat community in all of Central America, I presume most of them came down here because of the high poverty rate back home and possibly also because of the communist dictatorship in the 80's. In fact, what for the United States is the problem of illegal immigration of Latin Americans, especially Cubans and Mexicans, is for Costa Rica the problem with illegal immigration from Nicaraguans, which is why the country imposed a visa requirement for all Nicaraguans (which the Nicaraguans responded with visa requirements for Costa Ricans, a move that was considered as retaliation against Costa Rica, especially in light of the San Juan river patrol dispute).
In Hamburg, the biggest ethnic minorities are Turks and Iranians. Hamburg has in fact one of the biggest Iranian ex-pat communities in all of Germany.

Well here are also a lot of Portuguese, Italians, (still from first and second generation)
Also there is a decent Argentinian, Chilean, Dominican, Haitian and Chinese Comunity.

White Caucasians... in Britain! I live in North Birmingham, around here about 75% of the resident population are either directly immigrants or are descended from family who moved over here from far flung parts of the former British empire. The population comes from central African countries, the Caribbean and the majority from Iran/Pakistan/Afghanistan/India/Bangladesh. Ironically, that figure is slowly going down because of an increase in economic migrants from Eastern European countries such as Poland.
It's certainly a very diverse area to live in, you get to experience cultures not normally associated with living in England. It does feel a little odd though sometimes, being in the ethnic minority.

Quoting LAXspotter (Reply 1): Quoting Toast (Thread starter):foreign invaders in your city?
Mexican-Americans, and very few African-Americans, thats about it.
Considered minority races in some parts, but "african-americans" aka black americans, are not foreign invaders in the US, they are just as american as white americans, unless of course you are talking about Africans who recently moved to the US.
Anyhow, I live in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The most notable minority groups are the Japanese due to the large Nissan factory here.

they're in the minority, theyre not Invaders, lol. I'm just saying that in this city, they're just in smaller numbers. However you might want to check this guy's comments
Hard to say exactly in Prince William County, VA, since the county doesn't post that information on its website. What they do say is that the county is 63% white, 19% black, 7% Asian, and 1% native American, and 82% non-hispanic, and 18% hispanic.
My guess is that the majority of our immigrants are from El Salvador and Mexico.

Since this area is about 95% Japanese (no-brainer), the largest ethnic minorities are Chinese and Koreans by default. Given all the factories in Aichi prefecture, the next largest groups would be Brazilian and Peruvian laborers who are here by virtue of past Japanese bloodlines. Following them would be all of us whiteys, including all the leggy Russian girls working in the hostess clubs

Quoting A380US (Reply 21): wow NY um.....
about every other possibility
New York is certainly extraordinarily diverse, although nationalities tend to stick together to some extent, as they do elsewhere. When I went to school in Elmhurst, I and an Irish guy were the only Caucasians in our class. There was a black kid, and the rest were Koreans. Our landlord was Korean, the shops were Korean. My aunt reports the area has become more diverse in recent years, though.

same thing could be said about Los Angeles. There were virtually no caucasians in my school, probably 25-30 out of the entire student body of 3,000. 60% of the kids were Hispanic, 20% of the kids were African American, and 20% were Asian primarily Korean and Filipino. I was amongst the 15 South Asian kids in the school, surprisingly you can call that diversity in LA, there are some schools like Jefferson High School in South LA where its about 95% Hispanic and 5% Black, also happens to be one of the most racially heated schools amongst the LA schools.

Quoting AirTran737 (Reply 5):there are only four other white people that live here.
Since, ATL has a large percentage of African Americans, im guessing he considers them to be the invaders
You know I didn't realize that ATL had that many black people.
There is something special about planes....
25 Frontiercpt: San Diego- Mexicans. Oh wait, you asked for minorities, so in that case it would be Americans
26 LTU932: The accent. In Latin America, countries have their own accent, that's how people make out e.g. a Cuban from an Argentinian.
27 Toast: Amazing. Nicaragua and Costa Rica are neighbors, and they're small countries. I sure can't tell the difference between their accents (to my defense,
28 LAXspotter: sorry to be so damn PC, but that statement would imply the vast majority of Hispanics of Mexican descent in San Diego are not Americans, yet San Dieg
29 ShyFlyer: Where I live, Caucasians are the minority.
30 FlyMIA: Well the Minority for Miami would be White American! Its great living in the United States but really its nothing like the rest of the country. I gues
31 LAXspotter: yep, and then followed by Asian Americans. However some states are going to have a higher Hispanic Population in the future.
32 Ha763: Well, everyone in Hawaii is a minority. There is no majority ethnicity.
33 Oldeuropean: In Cologne: The Turks and Italians couldn't already called a minority here. The real minorities here are: people from all over ex Yugoslavia (Croatian
34 AirTran737: Demographics of Hawaii (csv) By race White Black AIAN Asian NHPI 2005 (total population) WHITE 41.26% BLACK 3.33% AIAN 2.03% AIAN is American Indian
35 LAXspotter: Mostly Filipino-American, and Japanese American, and to a lesser extent Chinese Americans.
36 N1120A: Ventura County: Very white, the largest minority being Mexicans. Century City: The most visible minority are the Iranians, with European Jews followin
37 LTU932: Try to make out the differences between the Uruguayan accent and the Argentinian accent. Both accents are almost the same, but have some differences.
