Apartments with Indian community and social scene in South Bay.Jan 7
I am looking to rent a new apartment. Wife would be on H4 and would be stay at home initially. Can you guys recommend some apartment communities where there is a sizeable Indian population and has a good social scene among them?
- Deloitte / ConsultantweirdflexmoreWhy would you want to immediately segregate yourself in a homogenous immigrant community and exclude yourself from the general population as one of your first acts in what you’re likely hoping to make your home country? Doesn’t make any sense at all
- You’re bringing up largely irrelevant details when my point was general. My general point is that history shows that across the world, including the US, races like to segregate with each other. Of course history played a role in black-white segregation, but this doesn’t mean that voluntary segregation doesn’t exist. In newly formed communities in cities like SF when Asian immigrants came in where there was less historical segregation ultimately ended up resulting in largely white and largely Asian communities. This is by and large voluntary. Not everything is the cause of racism.
- Amazon lolwhatImagine if someone asked the same question but instead of Indian, said White or Heterosexual or Christian or something like that.
Or perhaps this is really appropriate to ask. And I'm the one who's just going crazy from old age.
- VMware / EngBrett_KmoreIf you want to stay among Indians that bad why not just stay in India??? 🤷♀️
- Sunnyvale in South Bay and Fremont in East bay. Also, there is no harm in looking to stay where there are more Indians especially if you are new. Life is already hard don't make it harder by trying to be introduce diversity in social interaction at the same time when you move to a whole new country with a totally different culture.

- Although I personally wouldn’t base my place of living solely on race, he still has every right to live wherever he wants. Let’s not pretend as if white and black communities don’t do this as well. They love to segregate within their communities and the disparity of segregation of white and black communities is no coincidence.

You need to study U.S. history if you believe black people segregate themselves voluntarily: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racial_segregation_in_the_United_States
He does have the right to live anywhere he wants but choosing to live in an Indian community is a poor choice. That will make it very hard to assimilate to U.S. society especially if his wife doesn’t speak English well.
The best way to assimilate is to be immersed in a foreign culture and learn to deal with culture shock.

It does explain black-white segregation today.
Have you actually been in a black neighborhood? Do you actually know a black person personally? If you actually have, you will know the reason why there are still black neighborhoods today. It is not because they segregate themselves.
Honestly, you are talking like you never grew up in America. Look up some news articles involving blacks between 2015 and 2018. Then let me know what you find.
Hint: What happens if a young black man is found walking in a white neighborhood in the Florida panhandle at night in 2019?
- Now you bring up Australia? You really don’t know what you are talking about. Have you actually lived there? I spent my gap year in Perth. The minorities there would love to integrate with the white communites but for safety’s sake, they have to segregate themselves.
Stop posting things you know nothing about.
- Did you miss this little sentence:
“The minorities there would love to integrate with the white communites but for safety’s sake, they have to segregate themselves.”
It is one-way segregation perpetrated by the majority class. Does that sound familiar? The word starts with ‘A’...
