I'm linking to the original WSJ article, because Gawker's write-up just incited feelings of rage.

What an interesting reversal. Now the non-Asians are complaining that the others are taking over and so they feel vulnerable and confused that they can't even get their food and read the signs...
can you imagine how it was when the first Chinese and Koreans got to the US and couldn't read the signs and couldn't find their food in the stores?

Actually, as I go to Flushing pretty often, there are some stores where you can find the Entenmann's and the deli meats. The Asian groceries do carry them; there's an American food aisle, because hey, just 'cause we're Asian, we still eat our sandwich meat and generic pastries. The encouraging part of this article is how one of the managers of the groceries hears what the non-Asians are complaining about and sees this as an opportunity to grow the business. And that's why this was in the WSJ.
