It’s a social history of NYC specifically the LES that tracks the ordinary person and the lower classes. And immigrants.
Anyway, this claim is wholly born out there: the most recent immigrants are always the ones most hated, and they are always MOST hated by the class that WAS the most recent immigrant before them— because that’s the class that is now losing jobs to them, and (cynically)— they’re the class that didn’t have anyone to beat on before the new group arrived.

I just finished watching New York: A Documentary (again) and it makes that exact point too. Here in Britain, it is the Poles who have been getting all the ‘bad press’ recently. And they are of course, the most recent large scale migration here.
