all the issues Asian store owners and black people have? its a very shaky thing to try run a business in poor neighborhood.... you are looked at like a parasite... mostly pawn shops and liquor type stores more than super markets and or anything positive...

I can't speak for anywhere else, but a lot of the places around here are owned by our people. They might not still live right there, but there's a lot of business owners that came up in the area where their shop is now, and eventually moved, but they're still alumni. I really can't think of many Asian owned stores around here besides the obvious Chinese restaurants. And I remember a laundromat on the eastside having the most Asians I've ever seen in Detroit. Chaldeans own alotta places too, but they're generally real cool with the population.
