Window-shop at one commercial strip in south Oxnard and you will find things from a world away: purple yam cakes . . . Tagalog karaoke CDs . . . newspapers from Manila. The economic heart of the local Philippine American community, the strip mall at Yucca Street and Saviers Road, reflects a growth spurt in the 1990s, when more Filipinos moved to Ventura County than any other Asian group. "If there's any place where a lot of Filipinos go, it's there," said Tony V.

For African American Douglas Cotton, his move to Dallas was a no-brainer. He had found a better job. Housing was cheap. And his dad, a Texas native, had taken his children back home for visits as they grew up in Oxnard. "It's weird," said Cotton, 38, a lifelong Oxnard resident until he moved in 1996, and whose sister has now followed him to Texas. "I was back in Oxnard for Thanksgiving, and I didn't see anybody I grew up with."

A decade ago, Santa Ana, El Monte and Oxnard had zero Latino mayors. Now they all do. That's one reflection of a Census Bureau report, released today, that listed the three cities and unincorporated East Los Angeles among America's 10 leading Latino hubs. East L.A.--96.8% Latino, according to Census 2000--had the highest concentration of Latinos of any American community with 100,000 or more people. Santa Ana (76.1%), El Monte (72.4%) and Oxnard (66.2%) ranked seventh through ninth.

Hispanics are being discriminated against in their search for rental housing in Oxnard, according to a report authorized by the city. The report, which comes up for hearing April 20, contends that despite the small sampling of rental units, "clear evidence of substantial discrimination" exists. "I was set back," Oxnard Councilman Bedford Pinkard said. "This is 1993. We went through the same thing in 1963. I'm surprised we have not advanced too far."
