  • The over used "Melting Pot" analogy for Immigration is Freeking Broken

    The over used "Melting Pot" analogy for Immigration is Freeking Broken Here is why: - The heat is too low on the stove ( Reduced Pressure to assimilate ) - The Pot is smaller than you think ( Number of people that we can culturally absorb without permanently altering our base culture ) - The Pot is overstuffed & ingredients are spilling out on the counter ( We have way to many people trying to come in, Illegals are the "spillover" ). - The Pot is not being Mixed ( Self-Segregated Ethnic communities are not dispersing faster than they are...

  • After Decades Of Dividing America On Race, Left Insists The Right Is Really To Blame

    Demographics aren't destiny, culture is. The sooner Americans return to affirming "E pluribus unum," the faster we can mend our national wounds. A new book, “Let Them Eat Tweets,” by political scientists Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson, is the latest attempt to shift the blame for identity politics, maintaining that conservatives are exploiting ethnic anxiety sparked by “changing demographics.”Yes, after creating a caste order dividing society into identity silos based on race, ethnicity, sex —anything that conveys feelings of victimhood — the left is now shocked that some whites could, too, fall prey to identity politics. Nothing could better illustrate...

    Full Title: Steve Hilton: I didn't get the true genius of America's founders until I moved here. Here's what worries me now. July Fourth is a moment for all of us to reflect on America and what it means – and that’s particularly true this year, as the holiday comes right after a week in politics that revealed the great challenges America’s system of government is facing. The retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy – and the left’s reaction to it – should give us all pause this Independence Day. I studied America’s system of government years ago when...

    The American Dream is still alive and well, a beacon of freedom, and will always attract new immigrants to be future productive citizens. I am proud to be an American, and proud of this nation’s history, culture, and accomplishments! America is a melting pot of immigrants who brought rich heritages to our shores, became immersed in American culture, and worked hard to achieve the American Dream. My first ancestor came to this continent ten generations ago, and the arrival of my most recent ancestor was four generations ago, so I consider myself an American-American! As far as I am concerned,...

    One-fifth of people in the U.S. speak a foreign language at home, according to a report being released Monday by the Center for Immigration Studies, which found Arabic and Urdu — the national language of Pakistan — among the fastest-growing. The report found that nearly half of all California school-age children speak a language other than English at home, as do a third of Texans and Nevadans, according to the report, which is based on Census Bureau numbers.

    The revelation of the relationship between President Barack Obama and the late Critical Race Theory professor Derrick Bell sheds light not only on Obama’s past beliefs, but his present governing philosophy, particularly at the Department of Justice. It is interesting, for example, to reconsider Attorney General Eric Holder’s incendiary statement in 2009 that America is a “nation of cowards” with a view towards the influence of Bell’s ideas on Obama's cohort of left-wing legal minds. In his speech, Holder expressed a brazen skepticism of the concept of America as a “melting pot,” seeing that as a form of self-deception. Despite...

    The only chapter missing from Pradipkumar Vora’s “American Dream” is the one with the happy ending. In just four years, Vora has gone from providing room service to pay for his rent at the Wildflower Inn to owning the same Cuero motel. Vora is now capitalizing on the oil and gas boom by constructing an RV park behind the Wildflower Inn and has plans to build a Taco Bell restaurant nearby on Esplanade. But despite being one of the most successful buesinessmen in Cuero, Vora, along with his wife, Kokila, are far from content. Overcoming tragedy Vora was raised in Mumbai,...

    When Mayor Julián Castro visits Mexico next month, it will come as no surprise to see his chief of staff, Robbie Greenblum, close at hand. Greenblum has earned the mayor's trust, but there might be another reason to have him nearby: He speaks fluent Spanish; Castro does not. The mayor, who has taken informal Spanish lessons while in office and understands most of what he hears, represents a generation of Latino elected officials whose parents were discouraged from speaking Spanish in school. Many didn't master it themselves. In Mexican diplomatic circles, Castro's limitations shouldn't hinder him. Many of those he'll...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Several members of Congress called Thursday for a presidential commission to study the formation of a "melting pot museum" in Washington to tell the history of immigration and migration that formed the nation. Democratic Virginia Rep. Jim Moran introduced legislation Thursday that calls for studying the creation of a National Museum of the American People without any federal taxpayer funds. The bill had 11 other co-sponsors. "The people of the United States do not have a comprehensive and accurate picture of all the peoples who created and continue to build the nation," the bill says.

    For those of you who watched IDOL this evening,were you shocked on who the final ten were?,and then even more shocked on who were picked for the three wild card spots? It was bad enough that two of the best female singers didn't make the top then,and then to add insult to injury,Randy,Jenifer&Steve chose the two black female singers of whom were the least impressive of the six wild card contestants. It was so obvious that the judges were more concerned that they would of been declared racists if they didn't have at least one black female singer amongst the...

    How the mainstreaming of multiracialism is forcing a more fluid definition of Asian American identity Like many immigrants, my parents see identity as a bucket. My mother and father had come to America carefully bearing a pail of old-world traditions, cherished customs, shining morals and rock-ribbed ethics; they'd worked hard and sacrificed greatly to give me and my sister the things they never had. And then, they handed us the bucket -- knowing that in the transfer, a little bit of culture would inevitably slosh out over the side. They look at my kids now, downloading apps, watching "Spongebob," singing...

    PARODY-- Thousands of disenchanted terrorists stand silent as they watch an Al Jazeera live broadcast of the small Florida church congregation burning crayons. The whole world takes a big sigh of relief as a big misunderstanding is clarified. It seems that after all, the pastor of the Dove Church in Florida actually said they were going to burn "Crayons". (wishful thinking) A positive symbolic gesture of diversity is demonstrated as the colors all melt together like the peaceful way Americans live together, reminiscent of the original 'melting pot' of mainly European immigrants that formed the early United States of America....

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Melting pot or racial divide? The growth of interracial marriages is slowing among U.S.-born Hispanics and Asians. Still, blacks are substantially more likely than before to marry whites. The number of interracial marriages in the U.S. has risen 20 percent since 2000 to about 4.5 million, according to the latest census figures. While still growing, that number is a marked drop-off from the 65 percent increase between 1990 and 2000. About 8 percent of U.S. marriages are mixed-race, up from 7 percent in 2000.

    So many black women are single, she says, because they are stuck in the groove of a one-track song: sitting alone, waiting for that one "good" black man to come along and sweep them off their feet. Waiting. Talking to girlfriends. Waiting. Going out alone. Waiting. Going to work. Waiting. Waiting for a "good" black man, with the same education level to marry them. Waiting. Even when they know the odds are stacked against them. Single black women with college degrees outnumber single black men with college degrees almost 3 to 1 in major urban areas such as Washington, according...

    Of all this week's news, this is the only life-changing thing I've seen: "Somali Muslims Changing Small Town" (direct) From the (mainly sympathetic) article: Immigrants are chosen from UN refugee camps. The selected refugees then undergo a few days of cultural orientation and are soon on their way to America. Like me, you probably assumed that the one redeeming feature of such "refugees" was that at least they possessed the industriousness to try and make it to America; that at least they had enough of a personal desire to come to America, to try and get to America by themselves....

    "Greater numbers of Swedes are expressing hostility towards ethnic diversity, according to a new study. According to the annual diversity barometer carried out by researchers at Uppsala University, the percentage of the Swedish population with extremely negative attitudes toward ethnic diversity has increased by 50 percent since 2005. “The extremely negative attitudes are increasing, and we believe it’s in line with what’s happening in Europe. It’s not only older, but also younger who are negative,” said Orlando Mella, a sociology professor from Uppsala University, to the Dagens Nyheter (DN) newspaper."

    “Dr. Q” has a theory about how to cure cancer that he can’t wait to tell me. I look around at his lab assistants, their faces a rainbow of colors — intense, smart, listening. Their parents come from many parts of the world. Dr. Q has chosen them to test his theory: that a team of scientists from a diversity of backgrounds might find a cure for cancer more quickly, because each would see the problem differently. The lab at Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore we’re all gathered in belongs to Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa — “Dr. Q.” He is...
