Ever since it’s Westernization a few hundred years ago the image that comes to mind of your stereotypical American has been a white somebody. Fact
is (and this really isn’t racist) nearly half of all U.S children under five are non-white.
Right, so whites are still the overwhelming majority and will be for the long term future. And long before whites are a minority, they'll be a very
A minority is a group that is smaller than the largest group. "Whites" are the largest group now, and by that statistical demographic data, will be
the largest group for a heck of a long time. And then, after than, they will only be a "minority" if we could all non-europeans as a class called

that black people are on average more likely to vote Democrat than whites.
But whites are more likely to vote. And hispanics tend to vote republican in large numbers, not to mention that middle easterners and indians also
tend to vote repulibcan. Immigrants in general tend to vote republican on a lot of issues.
I do believe that when you’re talking about millions of people becoming part of a nation their race is bound to make some difference to the
character of that nation.
Doubtful. Look at Sierra Leon. After the anglos left, there were blacks from outside of the country and native blacks. The blacks from inside the
country were pracitcally indistinguishable, culturally, from teh anglos. They looked to england for their culture, they were overwhelmingly in
support of freemasonry, they even condescended how england was 'radicalizing and liberalizing' in the 60s. The native blacks were entirely
Race is meaningless, culture is everything.
On a Separate Note: I'm not aware in recent history of any non-white superpowers (apart from the regional one of South Africa).
There have only been two superpowers, America, which is a diverse multi-ethinic nation, and the SOviet Union, which had slavs, rus, tartars, mongols,
arabs, etc, within it.
History shows that the most diverse nations are the most powerful. Compare the British Empire with its natives in the colonies to the ''german
empire' of the Kaiser. Or the british in south africa to the rabidly zenophobic boers. Or compare the arabs during their expansion to the
europeans, who were less able to incorporate native influences and ethnicities, and went into a dark age because of it.
If true would it mean things like their society-culture where what held them back in the past in the past
Held them back from what? Global Domination?
