Anglo: 41.9 Black: 11.3 Latino: 35.0 Asian and Other: 11.8 The use of the term "minority" to designate people of color has become increasingly erroneous. Anglos are the largest racial group in the county, accounting for 41.9% of the population. But when "minority" figures are combined, these groups account for 58.1% of the overall population.

Another family of Kosovar refugees arrived in the San Fernando Valley on Wednesday, bringing to six the number of families in Los Angeles. Four members of the Rexha family stepped off the plane at Los Angeles International Airport at around 2:30 p.m. after an exhausting daylong trip from Macedonia, where they had been staying with relatives. The Rexhas are part of the extended Vlashi clan, all of them related to Renee and Hajrush Vlashi, who live in West Hills.

Seven-year-old Fitore Vlashi stood in a pink dress before the third-grade class, caught between cultures. The young Kosovo refugee had arrived in the United States with little more than the clothes on her back. To help out, the children brought their own toys as gifts, offering them to Fitore one by one. As each student approached, Fitore's mother would whisper fiercely in Albanian, "Stand up, stand up!"--since in Kosovo, it is tradition to receive a gift standing up.

Four young men without a country got an early Christmas present Saturday--a new home in America, at least temporarily. The Vietnamese had stowed away on the Greek cargo ship Silver Ibex and spent the last four months at sea while a succession of nations refused them entry.

For several weeks, Chen Teh Liu and many of the friends who gather daily in the activity room of his Downtown Los Angeles senior center have been absorbed by the dizzying political discourse taking place in Washington. Like Liu, most are immigrants who came to this country to escape political persecution in their homelands, to flee economic deprivation or to embrace the romantic idea of America.

Ell Sean had no idea what he was starting nearly 20 years ago when he bought a four-unit apartment on 10th Street in what was a run-down section of Long Beach. Sean, one of about 125 Cambodians on U.S.-sponsored programs at local California State University campuses in the 1960s, bought the building after deciding to stay in the United States. Later, he bought the house next door and began helping some of his Cambodian colleagues from the universities to find places nearby.
