Thanks for clarifying and I'm sorry I misread your post as a racial issue instead of a cultural issue. I thought your post was in response to the OP. Criticizing a culture or nation is fine by me but not blaming all the ills of said culture or nation on a race. Which is what I thought you were doing but thanks for correcting me. I should have known better.


Anyways, although we DEFINITELY have issues of selfishness, over consumption, and corruption, to sum up the whole of American culture with those descriptions is still alarming to me. Or to think we hold the patent on those human faults.

We have people risking their lives to get here and I'm pretty sure it's not for the McDonalds, the mall, and a television set. It's the liberty, human rights, medicine, education, religious freedom, etc. That is also American culture. Along with a good treatment of animals, science exploration, inventions, technological advancements, amnesty for the abused, welfare for the unfortunate, etc.

It's all about how much you OWN and how much you CONSUME. Only by OWNING and CONSUMING more than everyone else can you possibly hope to WIN.


I really hope that isn't what was taken from my post. I'm not here to defend the downside of Western culture like over consumption and greed. No one in their right mind would. But it is true that is not the entirety of our culture and that is what I'm trying to stress. That is only the cynical, unbalanced view of it.

America is about MUCH more than a fancy iPod. I misinterpreted BH's post above and was NOT defending such character flaws. Only trying to state that it's wrong to blame them on a particular race but BH clarified she was talking about the culture as a whole- not a race.

The point that people like you who group Hispanic in as another Race entirely or culture entirely are really, really Racist. Like Aryan Racist like you better look exactly like me Racist or I have a problem Racist

Culture... They are Catholic...

Are you going to get closer to Christian than that, I mean can you not even deal with denominations of the same faith as the bulk of your nation?

Language Second generation Mexicans ALL speak English and assimilate absolutely

Race... They are predominately Spanish SPANISH... EUROPEAN

I mean for the Love of God... They are Spanish

And you compare them To Chinese (who also assimilate really well despite a world apart culturally)

How extreme can you possibly be?

They either adopt our culture mostly and are a problem or not, they aren't a problem in regards to our culture, ethnically they are European...

What should we only allow Norwegians and Brits?

PLUS they are our neighbors too... Should we Genocide a bunch of Catholic Europeans for all intents and purposes...


And SOCIALIST... No different than Europe or Even US at the moment in regards to flirtations with Socialism, what racist nonsense is that?

NO immigrant group works harder than Mexicans, I live in a State loaded with them and Gen 2 I see NO DIFFERENCE, they LOVE to start Capitalist businesses, how many of Us will walk down the street with a cart just to have their own business... they are Totally capitalist, what your saying is ridiculous, if I took 10 Hispanics in my Town and Ten Americans 2 Americans would be starting businesses after HS compared to Six Mexicans...

You have got to be kidding me...

Oh brother you can't even address the most IMPORTANT aspect of what it means to be American. This country wasn't founded on judeochristian beliefs least of all catholicism. The Founding Fathers were DEISTS. In God We Trust and One Nation Under God were all added in the last 60 years to our coin and pledge of allegiance. Sorry I'm not even going to address your other worthless drivel because although you call yourself an American you have no clue about the history of this country.

It has NOTHING to do with racism. And Latin America was socialist LONG before America was even created. And yes you're right Europe was socialist and still is THAT'S WHY AMERICA WAS FOUNDED!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has nothing to do with being white it has to do with being American. Sorry but the majority of Americans who came to this country were white. Blacks helped build this country and Asians built the railroads. But it was WHITES who were responsible for writing the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. It was WHITE EUROPEANS who started the French Revolution. Why is that being racist? EVERY race is proud of who they are and where they come from. Sorry if the greatest, most free society on Earth was created by white caucasian Europeans. My bad!


It's ok for EVERY other culture and group of people to be proud of where they came from and who they are except for Americans???????????? Blacks default back to Africa.........hispanics default back to mexico and spain but if I default back to my european heritage I'm a racist? What a flipping crock of horse crap! Grow up!

Dude if your cultural ideals can't even include Catholics your a Pig

You don't have to address my thoughts, your an embarrassment to me as White Guy and utterly Xenophobic... the kind of person who is the reason people think of us all as Racist and Intolerant.

Your spewing Psuedo Klanish stuff...

They aren't here altering our religion, they aren't here Hating us they aren't a culture in any day to day lifestyle way that conflicts...

That's enough for me... Your not changing or hating me and you like me


That's all I need

Remember... White Euro's invented and exploited the concept of cultural suicide. Must I mention - South Afrikans... China - Hong Kong... and the total "gun point" take over of the "American paradise" called Hawaii...

True, they did not welcome them... but don't hate, because 200 years ago invading Europeans laid the quilt trip groundwork for future integration here in America.

This whole thread has me in tears... LAUGHING!

First, there's this massive commentary on "American Culture", which in itself does not exist. The culture of the north east is vastly different than the culture of the south west. The culture of Boston MA is vastly different than the culture of Bridgewater NH. The culture of South Boston is different than the culture of Cambridge. As we narrow our scope, we might start to see similarities, but the cultures themselves are influenced by religion, economic standing, education, politics and all sorts of different factors. In the end, "culture" winds up sometimes being as specific as a city block.

Second, it seems that there is a fear of white America disappearing. Where is it going to go? This isn't Back to the Future! White people won't simply fade away from the picture, they just might not be the overwhelming majority. This should not be a problem, should it? Shouldn't it be values that we hold in high regard, not skin color?

Third, it looks like some white people in this thread are afraid of becoming the minority because of their past treatments of minorities (ie the "hilarious"
joke about the bartender). If you're so afraid of racism, then don't propagate it! Assuming the worst out of others is usually just a projection of the worst you see in yourself. I hope that's not the case here.

The USA has always been about immigration, and recently about integration. Unless we want closed borders and birthing limitations to keep whites as the majority, then that's something this country will just have to deal with.

(and yes, we do hear a lot about the racist Japanese. We just don't hear a lot about it in our news because, well, American news sucks.)

I agree with Mop. Your posts are why we get stereotyped as 'The man.'

No, I don't think ANYONE should EVER be ashamed of their race. And I have NO PROBLEM with people being 'proud' of their heritage or culture, even if it's whites/European (Although I personally don't understand the concept of being 'proud' or 'ashamed' of things you have not personally done).

However, America, as we culturally have it today, is not solely due to whites. As in, Anglo Saxon. Although the earliest settlers were of British descent and POLITICALLY America was founded by whites, there is more to America than politics. Culturally, we are based in majority European (North and South [Britain, Spain, France, Scandinavia, Italy, etc.) but also African, Asian, and Native Americans (Northern, Central, and Southern).

Our constitution, though immensely important of course, and although the majority of settlers were white does not mean whites alone own the country's history or value.

If capitalism works, then why are we in so much debt? Freedom of speech and capitalism are two completely different things. Capitalism works only if saving money is the motive, as opposed to spending. Otherwise, people can become lazy by their very own inventions(watching too much TV, for example) and expect the government to provide everything, which of course, leads to debt.

White Americans' majority to end by mid-century


my.earthlink.net

WASHINGTON (AP) — The estimated time when whites will no longer make up the majority of Americans has been pushed back eight years — to 2050 — because the recession and stricter immigration policies have slowed the flow of foreigners into the U.S.

Census Bureau projections released Wednesday update last year's prediction that white children would become a minority in 2023 and the overall white population would follow in 2042. The earlier estimate did not take into account a drop in the number of people moving into the U.S. because of the economic crisis and the immigration policies i
(visit the link for the full news article)



I call this and other posters that see a problem with this sour grapes. Where was the issue when blacks and other people in this country are a minority. Nobody is saying the end is near when it was those people as minorities and us whites are the majority. But as we see ourselves becoming a minority, we are complaining and gripping about multicultural this or immigration that etc. etc.. You know what it's all about, it's the fear that we whites won't be in charge pure and simple. It's okay to preach anything you want when your on top of the pile, but when your down on the bottom or lower on the pile you start to get insecure and fear that you'll get left out, you know how other minorities feel in a majority society. The privilege that we get or would have got will be gone and we will be treated the same as the black, hispanic, asian individual.

This thread is pretty telling.

It is also pretty sad. The corporations are taking hold, as the idiot citizens say "Yay Capitalism"
The Illuminati/NWO clutches tightly and the world begins to die. Global warming is now a "myth" in a lot of peoples mind. The planet dies...
The food codex made its way through while idiots protested health care. Generations of the future damned.
Nothing can save us, except for something extraordinary...

First time in my 19 years that I have felt so hopeless...why did all of you (35+) allow this to happen to the world? Why are you so full of hatred? Why did you play into their hands?

How do you know you're not playing into 'their' hands right now? That's the tricky thing about shadow governments and super secret societies. You never know exactly what they want, just what you're afraid of.

I may feel hopeless....I may be saddened. That doesn't mean I won't do everything I can to make sure they won't succeed. Even if I have no hope I will keep on trucking on pure principle alone.

EDIT: However, I feel "ENDGAME" approaching. Something is coming to change the game for both the light and the darkness. I just don't know what

Who wrote the history books you read.

My books tell of White people coming to a land inhabited by RED people that were in the great majority with many different cultures, until they were decimated by disease and technology brought by the white man.

And....




white people are the only people in america called just "americans"


Huh?

What is white? There was a time when Italians and Irish were not considered white by some people. America will still be majority European culture and speaking a European lanugage for many years to come. It even wouldn't surprise me if the majority retained caucasian features. Hysteria about immigrant groups changing a nation is nothing new, not even in Americas short history.
