What if Northern Chinese first immigrated to the West instead of Southerners

Asia Forum - Relocation, Moving, Local City Discussions - City-Data Forum - www.city-data.com
We all know that the original migrants to US/Canada/Aus in the 19th century were from far southern China in the port city of Guangzhou and built their Chinese culture in the West like the Cantonese Chinatowns in SF and such.

However, what do you guys think would have happened if Northern Chinese (from port cities in Shandong especially) immigrated instead?

Obviously, certain stereotypes would have changed as Northerners are certainly not small and effeminate, nor do they shy from alcohol and lack aggressiveness. Language would also be different. Do you guys think that culturally, Northerners would fit in better in the West too?
