Re: “Saving Chinatown

Congratulations Luke Tsai for an extremely thorough and thought-provoking look at Chinatowns---many of which have already disappeared in the United States. The saving of San Francisco's Chinatown, before and after 1906 when politicians/ business interests tried to relocate all Chinese to the Bay View, was both an economic and civil rights battle. Unlike later displacements, by Redevelopment, of Japanese-Americans from Nihonmachi and African-Americans from the Western Addition/ Lower Fillmore, an intact Chinatown incubated an evolution of a strong Chinese-American culture. San Francisco's Chinatown deserves public investments and legal protections---to strengthen its economic ripple benefits, to preserve its unique architecture/ character and to honor it as the birthplace of Chinese culture in America.
Thanks again for this great article.
