Jesus farking Christ, when did we start letting the Klan greenlight articles on Fark?

We get it, we're not as white of a country as we once were. But neither is every other country this dumbass mentioned in his article.

According to Walter Ellis in The Daily Telegraph, "sentiment stems from blood". It is because of a common ethno-cultural heritage among their settlor-descended majorities, cemented by a common language and legal system, which helped the Anglophone countries remain such strong allies for the last half century. Why else were politicians in Wellington and Canberra deemed closer to Washington than those in The Hague and Brussels?

What level of that shared sentiment is developed from common interest?

Or to put it another way, I call bullshiat. Japan, Korea, and Israel have been major allies for longer than New Zealand, and furthermore we've never been strong allies with plenty of "white" countries. Russia, for example, which is about as white as it gets.

And anyway, since when is what Walter Ellis types up in a Daily Telegraph opinion piece in any way considered a source? According to Rapmaster2000 in Fark, chicks really dig it when you tell them about your collection of Star Wars figures.

I'm sure at some point we'll just start counting Mexicans as white people of Mexican ancestry and go back to the white majority.

The vast majority of white Americans descend from the British Isles, Germany, Italy and Eastern Europe.

Um, you're discussing where white American bloodlines come from and you mention Italy and Eastern Europe but not France? Are you on farking LSD or something?

Also, 50 years ago we were a racial minority country. Germans and Scots/Irish families were distinct from new Irish families were different from Louisiana branch families, etc, and major religious divisions were so bad that Kennedy's election was considered a major step forward in tolerance because he was Catholic. The only reason we became "white majority" in the '70s was because we changed the way race was typically determined to a more dualistic bit to reflect the growing importance of the black rights movement.

Swinging into plurality territory and then back into majority v opposition politics isn't exactly gonna be new ground, is what I'm saying here.

//Maybe when we become a racial plurality nation we'll start pressuring Europe to stop disenfranchising their own immigrants, that'd be nice.

This reads like a thought exercise for someone who's never had a meaningful interaction with a non-white American. A lot of "what if's". As for the "sentiment stems from blood" idea, IMO on a practical level, language trumps blood. As someone born in another country but who grew up in the US and primarily speaks English, I have much more empathy with an average American guy (or even an AverageAmericanGuy) than an average person from the home country. Plus, our legislature overrepresents rural / low population density areas, which skew white, so I don't think our English brethren have much to worry about.

I thought the other Anglo European countries were also being invaded by hordes of immigrants that will fundamentally alter their values. So our relationship with them should be fine. We're America. We'll assimilate those f*ckers and make them American. It'll be a slightly different, browner America and your kids might find it prudent to learn Spanish but it'll still kick ass and have delicious food.

That said, reform and overhaul resulting in a rational and comprehensive immigration policy is long overdue. We can even certainly discuss border security and preventing and discouraging the unrestricted inflow of immigrants into this country. No literal fence though, that's stupid.

America is changing...many in the burgeoning Asian communities have "begun to look down on European-Americans as lazy and decadent."

Ha. They have?! Those bastards. I think someone just volunteered to build our transcontinental and coastal high-speed rail systems...and by build I of course mean do all the hard math and engineering stuff.

I refuse to click, but let me guess..."Wah! When we're not the majority them ethniks will treat us as badly as we treated them!" with a side of, "and the other whites will think we're tainted by association and refuse to talk to us!"

Race is really just a stopgap to keep the plebs fighting amoung themselves while the super wealthy set up a class system. Once the super wealthy have a rigid class system in place they can control the population far more effectively than playing people of different races against each other would ever enable them to.

European countries immigration is primarily from middle eastern and north African countries and is not to the same percentage as the US.

This is an interesting topic to examine on how the shift in the racial component of the country will affect the cultural values of the country. For example, in Harris country (Houston) the racial make up is 40% Hispanic, 30% white, 20% black and 10% Asian.

Since Hispanics tend to be heavily skewed toward Catholicism does this trend to an eventual overturning of abortion rights. I've read that currently there are more pro life people than pro choice people, does this continue. What will be the effect on the black population when Hispanics take their majority to the political arena in terms of congressional maps. For example Sheila Jackson Lee's congressional district has had a significant Hispanic growth. Will she be voted out to a Hispanic candidate this year or 2014. If you have any interest in sociological trends this is very interesting times.

Of course you could just call it racist and close your mind off from the subject. But this will impact you.

I'm more concerned with American English. If you speak it, you're OK by me. I'll also accept Spanglish, British English, Candien, The English they speak in India, German, Brogue, Hawai'ian, Australian, South African English, any of the Pidgin English varieties you get down in the Islands.

I think that the immigrants are great people, but their grandchildren will have really acclimated and they will share our values. Come one, come all.

I just don't care. Does it really matter?

Lets say that all white people are slowly phased out over the next 100 years. Nothing changes. It's not like our skin color gives us special powers, more muscle or powerful brains.

I'd honestly bet Asians first myself. Given the choice between the highly educated technical workers who routinely beat the white kids at school and the high school dropouts who don't speak English and have 5 kids by 3 women at 20, I know which one I'd prefer to lump myself with.

I don't know though. One of the two hispanic kids at my high school was on the football team, ended up going to the Air Force Academy, and was effectively culturally and socially white. Of course the other was 15 and pregnant, so make of that what you will.

/And so long as 90% of the black kids are gang members from Detroit who are responsible for 95% of the visible school crime, bullying, and outright asshattery, while being under 10% of the population, that's not happening. Which is actually sad because the other 10% were the absolute best kids in the school.
