not to the same extent. and even when it did it didn't have very many. its not as ghettoised in that way.
another factor might be that America -- particularly NYC -- encourages ethnic pride and celebrations.
one of the craziest days here used to be the Puerto Rican Day Parade, which starts way uptown in Spanish Harlem and comes down Fifth Ave by all the swankiest old-money apartment buildings on Central Park East. Some rich white folks would freak out, hire security and stores would board up street-level windows. there were a few years where the scene in the park (where in parade ends) was kind of out of hand with disorderly conduct, sexual assaults, etc. Not sure what it's like now, I don't think they held it during the pandemic.
I thought of buying a mini chainsaw to get it down to size,
Unless you've got experience doing that sort of thing and all the gear, I wouldn't go anywhere near it. My brother's been hit in the face with a chainsaw at work and he's been doing it for years and was only saved by the visor on his helmet. They can kick back and catch you by surprise even if you know what you're doing.
