My problem is the way of life is changing. Whether people will admit the painful truth or not, minorities lag behind in many aspects of life (higher crime rates, lower income, lower education levels, etc etc), and it isnt due to institutionalized racism.


My mistake...you are just a plain old racist.


Given the rates of "minorities" on social assistance programs, the question posed by a previous poster must be answered: Who will be the one funding the ever increasing costs associated with a growing minority population?


Got a source for that...because I'm pretty sure you are wrong on this.


Are you white? If so, please answer this question honestly:


LOL...yes...I bet you don't even realize why I am laughing.


You and your family are driving down the road and your car breaks down. Where would you feel more comfortable at? breaking down in a white part of town, or a minority part of town?


Oh no...the scary dark skinners are going to rape me and steal my tires.

You do realize that there are high crime areas that are all white...don't you???

Why are you so scared of people that have darker skin then you??? You seem to have a lot of fear of people with dark skin....why is that?

I have two problems with this report:
  • The 2010 Census is not completed yet. I know; I worked for the Census until last week. The phase I was in was completed well ahead of schedule for my area, ahead of most of the US, and that is not even the last phase! I was told to expect a call back within 2-4 weeks for the next phase.

  • The racial question itself allows as many choices as a person wishes to make... if you want to claim you are a white/black/Asian/Native American/Persian/Ethiopian mix, all of those boxes get checked. And since it is now much more politically correct (and in some cases financially advisable) to be a minority, I believe a of of people who would have once said "white" are now adding in their minority heritage. As another poster pointed out, few of us are actually purebred anything... personally I am Dutch-German/French/English/Scottish/Irish/Black Dutch/Cherokee/Creek, and I probably missed a few in there.

    Which probably explains why I argue with myself so much...

Textbook? Why? I simply expounded on a statement from a recognized leader in the black community.

I dont believe one race is superior to another. That is textbook racism.


Oh come on...why is it so hard to admit that you are racist???


Admit it...embrace it...it is who you are...why lie to yourself??? Well you probably aren't lying to yourself...I'm sure you know...but why lie to everyone else?

Tell me this...if you aren't racist...would you mind your daughter (if you have or would have one) getting married to a black man or a hispanic man???

Like we needed a census to tell us this. I take a visual census daily; and that has been telling me this for a long time. However, I could care less. What? Is the USA suppose to be a white country?

It is textbook common sense, and with all respect you evaded the question, friend.

I work or have worked in every inner city 'hood in the SE and can assure you of that.

And(if you are white,black, blue or purple--but ESPECIALLY white) your car breaks down in 100 percent black west birmingham, al. on a summers night, you would be much more inclined to agree with the poster or Jesse Jackson than you are from the security of your armchair and desk.

And the counter that 'all races have criminal elements' is almost always made from those who don't have the inclination to test their theories in reality, but rather make pandering, apologists statements from the safety of living rooms in white suburbs.

As a black man, white apologists make me gag simply because they are so disconnected with reality.

This is stupid. Makes no difference how many of whatever race lives here.

What does make a difference is the financial well being of these families.

Are the economic numbers rising for these minorities in line with their numbers? Where are all the minority owned homes and businesses.

This is what's important. I don't care what the race is as long as there is more home ownership and business ownership. And not by means o trickery like Clinton and Freddie and Fannie and lawyer Obama all set up. I mean real homeownership.

It would be simple and stupid to conclude a rising minority population automatically means a rising welfare population but if the two should happen to overlap we cannot ignore the rising welfare population just because some idiot would call us racist for bringing it up.

Rising minority populations won't hurt the country. Rising welfare populations will.

That is if there is even a country to hurt. All the balance sheets seem to say we've been a failed state for a long time now. Just running on fumes and bad loans.

Okay, so when whites are the minority, does that mean that whites will be the beneficiaries of affirmative action? Does that mean whites will be able to yell "racism" every time something doesn't go their way and shift opinion to their favor?

I'd like to see how that goes.

Oh by the way, does anyone find this surprising?

So I am reading a story in the local paper about illegal immigration in New Mexico, and it said that there are 60,000 illegal immigrants here.

Okay, you know how many illegals are here but you still need to do a head count on U.S citizens?

Nope. The census is unneccessary nowadays. We know who lives where, their race, gender, income, where they shop, how many cars they have, yadda yadda.

It's merely a tool to commit fraud yet again on the American people.

Watch how fast Obama redistricts everything after the census wraps.

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

p.s.

But only if they are white people!

Ouch, wrong again, libbie. Only if they come here LEGALLY, through proper channels, and become taxpaying citizens. Do you think Ellis Island was an amusement park?

Exactly what part of that whole concept do you liberals not understand?

Violence and IQ are the real issues with immigration but they are
the elephant in the room no one wants to see. Edit:Also the huge numbers of immigrants.

Violence levels in different places may differ by a factor of 120.
120 murder per year per 100,000 people in one place versus
1 murder per year per 100,000 people in another.

IQ may vary from 70 to 87 for some groups to 106 for the Chinese and Japanese.

Racialism: The idea that different groups have different characteristics.
Black people look black,white people look white,brown people look brown.

Racism: The idea that you prefer certain characteristics in people which you believe are related to race:Looks,Color,IQ,Levels of Violence.
Most people would probably be racists by this definition.

Whites have lost 14% in 9 years.

That is way too fast, and soon we will be the minority.

The plan of TPTB is almost complete.

This is why immigration has destroyed this nation.



WOW.

JUST WOW.

Emphasis mine.


Seriously, Brainwrek, I am assuming based on your post and its content that you are white. Would I be correct in that assumption?

If so, then guess what buddy, your ancestors immigrated to this country.

America is a Nation of Immigrants. It always has been and always will be. To say that "immigration has destroyed this nation" shows a complete and total ignorance for how this nation was founded. Every single one of the founding fathers was an immigrant or a descendant of immigrants. Every single non-American Indian currently living in this country is a descendant of immigrants. Yourself included, pal.






Now, I am about to blow your mind with my perspective on this news. As a 100% blonde-haired green-eyed white male, I can say that I can't wait until I am a minority.

As it stands right now, persecution of white males is completely legal, and oftentimes encouraged by our social structure. Soon, we will be a minority, and we will be able to seek all of the benefits that current minorities receive, such as subsidized education, affirmative action benefits, and of course the ability to show ethnic pride again without being labeled a racist. Lopsided legislation such as hate crime laws will go out the window. No longer will I be able to be persecuted simply because I had the misfortune of being born to European ancestry.



The USA is a melting pot, and I for one cannot wait until our demographics accurately reflect that. If you hate non-whites so much, you should move to Europe. That is our natural homeland, after all. And besides, they are doing much better off over there anyway.

How did this thread turn into a racism thread?

I don't see where the OP confirmed any type of racism.

I am not racist by any means.
This country was founded on multitudes of races.
I am a mixture of plenty. Therefore, I would defeat myself if I became racist.

U.S. Census shows an increase in minorities.
We all knew this was coming.
You can't have a booming population (with open borders) without it.

Unless, you have a tight border, (I.E., N.Korea, China)
You don't see a mixture of too many races in those countries.

I agree with the OP's statement, to get away from minorities increasing...
You would HAVE to shut down the borders.

Or just enforce the laws that are already in effect...(Arizona???)
Oh wait, we already been through this.
We have the laws.
The gov't just doesn't enforce them to the maximum allowable degree.

Hmm....maybe there is a reason?
North American Union?


Everything happens for a reason. (or is manipulated to produce the desired effects)

The U.S. is NOT a nation of immigrations.

It once was, when the country was populating itself in its early days. However, with a majority of people in this country still being born on U.S. soil, it is no longer a nation of immigrants.

I am nowhere near a racist. My social circle basically resembles the UN in terms of diversity.

As for the source pertaining to greater reliance on social assistance programs by minorities, here is a link.

Do I need to explain the term per capita to you?
Health and Human Services Link


Need another?



As a result of these differing patterns of caseload increase and decline, there has been a significant change in the composition of the welfare caseload. As shown in Table 2, between 1985 and 1996, the major trend in the racial composition of the caseload was the increase in the proportion of the caseload that is Hispanic, which rose from 13.6 percent in 1985 to 20.7 percent in 1996. The proportion of the caseload that is Non-Hispanic White gradually declined from 40.8 percent in 1985 to 35.6 percent in 1995. The proportion of the caseload that is African-American declined from a high of 41.6 percent in 1985 to a low of 36.4 percent in 1994. This general trend has continued since implementation of welfare reform. In the most recent data, for FY 1999, Non-Hispanic White families made up 30.5 percent of the caseload, African-American families 38.3 percent, and Hispanic families, 24.5 percent.

The entire concept of land ownership didnt exist with the indians.

Modernized culture in every 1st world nation recognizes the idea of ownership and property rights.


so, because we defined land ownership on paper means that we are entitles to whatever land isnt posessed by a "deed". Again, that is so sensless and destructive you have no idea.

Because the natives didnt say they "owned" the land means that we can come in, claim it for our own and rape it repeatedly. thats sick stuff

Again, you show complete ignorance for how this country works.



As of 2006, the United States accepts more legal immigrants as permanent residents than all other countries in the world combined.[1] Since the liberalization of immigration policy in 1965,[2] the number of first- generation immigrants living in the United States has quadrupled,[3] from 9.6 million in 1970 to about 38 million in 2007.[4]

A record 1,046,539 persons were naturalized as U.S. citizens in 2008. The leading countries of birth of the new citizens were Mexico, India and the Philippines.[5]



Wiki


America is an immigrant nation. It always will be, as the majority of the population is descended from immigrants. That is what it means to be a nation of immigrants.

Why did your great-grandparents have more of a right to move here than current immigrants? Because they were white?

Again, we have no natural claim over this land. If you hate seeing non-white people, move to Europe. That is where our people evolved the light pigmentation you associate with our identity. Then you can claim that the land naturally belongs to white people, though you will be an immigrant yourself. Ironic, no?

No, its not. If your car broke down in an all white neighborhood at night, but it was low-class and all the whites were teenagers and young adults dressed like gangbangers, would you feel secure? your thinking of black people as in gangsters from the hood. Those can be any color, and always dangerous.

Now, if you were stopped in an all black neighborhood that was high-class, in the middle of the day and everyone was dressed with a certain amount of decency, would you still be scared?

Your not scared of black people, your scared of intimidating people. The fact that you think black = intimidating means you have your own racism issue.

I am aware theres a certain level of latent racism in most people, but this has nothing to do with the blatant outspoken racism demonstrated by the OP
