Tenement entertainment is an increasingly popular pastime for the world’s wealthiest and most powerful.
But with millions of Chinese citizens living in the United States and elsewhere, many are worried about their safety.
They fear a resurgence of ghost sightings in their neighborhoods, and that the city’s public spaces are no longer safe.
“I feel like it’s time for us to say we’re not going to allow things to go to the point where it is unsafe,” said Yang Zhang, an art history major at New York University.
“We are a city of people who live in a community, so if something happened, it would be our responsibility.”
The fear is growing in Chinatown, the nation’s most populous Chinatown and a major tourist draw.
In a survey conducted by The Associated Press in February, more than 80 percent of respondents said they were concerned about the safety of their community.
Some say they are seeing an uptick in ghosts.
Zhang said she once heard a young woman describe a “ghost that she had seen on the street.”
The woman was in her 20s, and was described as “very attractive” and “young.”
In Chinatown, a “big, black shadow” would appear and disappear, Zhang said.
“She said she would not leave her home until the ghost had gone.”
Chinese residents are increasingly concerned that ghost stories are a way for outsiders to gain access to their inner city.
Zhang believes the rise in such reports is linked to the country’s “ghost rush,” in which people rush to the city to find a new place to live.
“The ghost rush” is one of many theories to explain a rise in the number of Chinese Americans living in America.
The AP found that people in the U.S. are increasingly using social media to share their experiences of living in Chinatown and other Chinese communities.
The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times found that in a 2014 survey, more Americans than ever described themselves as Chinese-American.
More than 60 percent of Asian-Americans in America said they identified as Chinese.
Zhang, who is part of a group of Chinese students studying in Los Angeles, said she is worried that Chinese-Americans are becoming less secure.
She said she believes she is one.
“It’s not the Chinese who are scared.
I feel like a lot of people are afraid of the Chinese.”
She said some Chinese- Americans are fearful of going to Chinatown because it is a place where they were once “in hiding.”
Chinese- and Latino-Americans, on the other hand, are more likely to live in Chinatown.
Zhang fears that this is changing.
“People are more comfortable being around Chinese- or Latino-American people,” Zhang said, adding that they are also more comfortable with their neighborhoods.
Zhang and others say they do not want their stories to be the norm in Chinatown neighborhoods.
“Everyone wants to be like ‘Hey, I’m here, but I don’t know where to go.'”
But that fear is not unfounded.
Zhang has heard other Chinese- American stories about being caught in the crossfire of ghost stories.
“A lot of times they go to Chinatown, and they don’t want to go home,” Zhang told The Washington Times.
“But they are not scared.
They know that if they go home, they are safe.”
For Zhang, this is important because she said she feels like her safety is at risk.
She believes that, like many Chinese-Canadians, she may have been lured into the community by the promise of better housing and education.
“That’s not what I saw when I was young,” Zhang added.
Zhang worries that Chinese Americans who feel they are being targeted by outsiders are afraid to report their own experiences because of the risk of retribution.
In the case of Zhang, she is certain that she did not report the ghost to authorities.
“When I got home, I went to the police station and told them about it,” Zhang recalled.
“They said, ‘Well, we don’t really know.
She added that she does not know how much longer she will be able to live on her own. “
Zhang said that the police told her that it would take weeks to investigate and would be unlikely to find any evidence.
She added that she does not know how much longer she will be able to live on her own.
The Associated States Department of Justice says it does not keep statistics on the number or types of Chinese-related crimes reported to it by the FBI or local law enforcement.
But in a report in 2017, it noted that the number is increasing: The number of criminal complaints about Chinese-Chinese relationships in the US jumped nearly 30 percent between 2015 and 2017.
“In Chinatown, there”
There is a fear among many Chinese that they will be the next victim of these crimes,” said Mark Weisbrot, director of the Center for Community Justice at UC Berkeley.
