Posted on 08/31/2018 7:44:38 AM PDT by yesthatjallen
The battle over how to project the future population of the United States has profound political implications.
The question of whether America will become a majority-minority nation and when that might happen is intensely disputed, of enormous political import and extraordinarily complex.
Two articles that appeared in the opinion section of The Times over the past few years made the case that misleading statistical artifacts used by the Census Bureau have increased the fear of a majority-minority America, a fear that played a crucial role in the 2016 election.
Both Richard Alba, of CUNY, in The Myth of the White Minority, and Herbert Gans, of Columbia, in The Census and Right Wing Hysteria, argued that questionable census classifications led to an undercount of Americas white majority. This anxiety over the decline of white hegemony, in turn, helped propel a segment of conservative voters to cast ballots for Donald Trump.

Im not sure...better ask South African farmers, Egypt and a few other countries.
Whites are in the minority in the largest state, CA, and that trend will overtake the entire USA. It’s just a matter of time. The Demonrats are likely to achieve their permanent majority.
“This anxiety over the decline of white hegemony, in turn, helped propel a segment of conservative voters to cast ballots for Donald Trump. “
I’m about sick of the msm race baiting. If it had been Allen West instead of Trump, I would have voted for him.
South African farmers, for one................
BOTH parties have been engaging in a decades long bipartisan policy of non-enforcement of laws and borders with the explicit aim of changing the demographics of the nation.
The 1965 immigration act was not working fast enough so they decided to import more than was legally possible.
Bush League Republicans MUST become extinct before the Republic does.
The Demonrats are likely to achieve their permanent majority.
With the assistance of Rubio, Graham, Alexander, and the rest of the Bush League Republicans.
When you try to obliterate the future of a guy who is, say, Irish..? It’s hard:
IRELAND is a narrow thing, a concrete concept. If plants were people, think of that one nation identity as being a TAPROOT of the plant —hard to yank out.
If instead you condition him (and all other whites) to instead identify as WHITE..?
That’s a muuuuuuch more nebulous concept. Instead of a taproot, that’s a fine fibrous mesh, close to the ground surface —easy to yank out.
Being white is GREAT, but all this “whiteness studies” talk follows a shrewd lefty strategy:
Flip all whites away from their own various narrow European identities (Denmark, German, British, whatever), push them onto “WHITE” and THEN blast THAT to all hell.
I know very many people who at Christmas have a few tweaks on the holiday, “Oh, this is what our relatives did in Denmark, see...”. Lots of families have that.
How many times do you come into a home with a WHITE tweak on Christmas, huh..? DOESN’T HAPPEN.
Notice also the way the term “European-American” isn’t really popular. That’s also somewhat specific and grounding.
When lefties incessantly throw WHITENESS terms around, they’re trying to conventionalize a concept in your mind so you can be first mentally un-anchored from your roots.
And then be eliminated.
I am. Dont want to live in a minority US. Why should we?
This "right wing hysteria" is born of empirical evidence. We've all seen what happens to a white minority when a non-white majority comes to power. Zimbabwe and South Africa are laboratories for what will happen in the US and Europe if our current demographic trends continue (and there's no reason to believe that Arabs or Mesoamerican Indians will treat a once-prosperous white minority any better than Africans have done).
I am not afraid of a white minority, I am afraid of having a majority that does not understand the Constitution or who does not want a Republic. Only the left cares about skin color or race - I care about having people in this country who care about freedom and natural rights.
"The U.S. is projected to become a majority-minority nation for the first time in 2043. While the non-Hispanic white population will remain the largest single group, no group will make up a majority."
Intermarriage is common among U.S.-born Hispanics. Thirty-five percent marry someone who isnt Hispanic. About 12 percent of Hispanic men and 15 percent of Hispanic women born in the U.S. married a Hispanic person who was born outside the U.S.
Unfortunately, even most conservatives who want immigration laws enforced aren't willing to discuss this. They frame the debate in terms of enforcing existing immigration laws, or perhaps in terms of the economic costs of immigrants who receive social services. However, there is a wider issue here that applies even to many immigrants who come here legally and who are not necessarily economic parasites. That wider issue is whether mass immigration, particularly from the Third World will fundamentally transform the demographics and culture of the US in a desirable way.
The question of whether immigrants can and will assimilate, as opposed to remaking the US or Europe in their own image, is rarely brought up even by immigration "hawks" in fear of being called racist xenophobes by liberals or the politically correct pseudo-conservatives. There are very good reasons for having immigration quotas based both on the number of people and their nations of origin that go beyond economic and legal issues alone. Because of this, the elites have decided that you have no say in our country's ethnic or cultural makeup.
As Asian American I have no problem with white being majority. In fact I think its good thing that whites are majority. Generally speaking among all racial group whites are the most fair minded. They are ingenious, hard working and open minded
That said, they dont seem to be worthy of majority in my opinion. American whites dont unite around soverighty of the country. That bothers me a lot. On border security, American whites seem to be split. That is a big problem with them, beyond who is majority. You have to have a country before having anything else. In other words they dont seem to have the concept of what we new citizens call as country
Maybe the color of their skin is not enough to qualify them as race or ethnic group.
Outside America, you get shot crossing border of a country. Thats way human civilization has been.
Personally I don’t give a crap what anybody’s skin color is.
I worry about culture. If we could have a majority-minority country that does not turn into a third-world crapfest I’d be totally happy.
Mexico Cuba Venezuela India anywhere in the subcontinent of Africa
Pretty much I dont want my country to be like those hell holes
Two ways to handle this: Babies and voting. Goes hand in hand as to the end result.
And all the Jews who work at NYT, they’ll be the first Caucasians targeted
Whose afraid of the big bad wolf ?
