How do you bridge the divide when you don’t speak the same language? or hold the same truths to be self evident…
Note how the female Black honor student makes the threat that when Whites are the minority we will require affirmative action? What’s interesting and instructive to me about that is what it reveals about her world view and what we can expect from our Black and Hispanic overlords when they assume power.
Because to her Whites are taking these positions, not by merit, but by force. So she is telegraphing the presumption that when the tables are turned that they will do thing they accuse us of, which we aren’t doing, because they believe we are.
Exit question: why was importing thousands of Blacks to pick cotton a good idea which can only end well?
Follow up: and why would we assume that importing millions of Hispanic helots would turn out any better?
“Are you a white man? If you’re a white man, then shut the f**k up about race, because you don’t know sh*t other than how to rape and kill.”
Try to imagine having an actual conversation with this turd…
Lots more here.
Well, except for Whites of course…
Racial Identity Tied to Happiness, Study Finds
ScienceDaily (Mar. 7, 2011)–African American people who identify more strongly with their racial identity are generally happier, according to a study led by psychology researchers at Michigan State University.
The study, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, appears in the current issue of Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology, a research journal published by the American Psychological Association.
“This is the first empirical study we know of that shows a relationship between racial identity and happiness,” said Stevie C.Y. Yap, doctoral candidate in psychology at MSU and lead researcher on the project.
Previous research has found a relationship between racial identity and favorable outcomes such as self-esteem, Yap said, but none has made the link with happiness.
For the study, the researchers surveyed black adults in Michigan. The results suggest the more the participants identified with being black–or the more being black was an important part of who they are–the more happy they were with life as a whole, Yap said.
The study also explored the reasons behind the connection. Yap said it may be fueled by a sense of belongingness–that is, blacks with a strong sense of racial identity may feel more connected to their racial group, which in turn makes them happy.
Can a fact be racist?
Either the Republican Party puts an end to mass immigration, or mass immigration will put an end to the Republican Party
Steve Sailer reviews Pat Buchanan’s new book Suicide of a Superpower: Buchanan wants a moratorium on new immigration until unemployment falls to 6%. He points out that to bring in foreign workers when 23 million Americans are still underemployed or out of work is to put corporate profits ahead of country. In addition, he wants to reform legal immigration in the long run to bring in those who are most easily assimilated. An interesting point that he makes is that in 2008, John McCain won only 45% of the Catholic vote, which comprised 27% of the electorate. If Republicans can raise their 2012 nominee’s share of the Catholic vote from 45% to 52% that seven-point gain would add more votes than going from 20% of the Jewish vote to 100%. Another interesting fact that Buchanan points out is that polls show that young people, a demographic that Republicans lost badly in 2008, are more highly averse to affirmative action than are older voters. Therefore, coming out against racial quotas may be a good way for the GOP to win over young white voters.
Like many swaths of Detroit, Keith Wicks’ historic Indian Village neighborhood has remained largely dark at night after vandals destroyed transformers in nearly every streetlight pole that powers them. On a recent rainy day, Wicks, 64, a retired GM engineer who has lived in Detroit for decades, watched as city Public Lighting workers put new transformers at the top of the aging wooden poles. Just days later, those streetlights were out — again. The growing lack of public lighting has become a troubling problem for cash-starved Detroit, where entire stretches of neighborhoods and thoroughfares — such as portions of the Southfield Freeway — are feeling the effects. The war to keep the lights on in Detroit is a serious one. Thieves, antiquated equipment and a lack of funding have made it impossible for city officials to catch up to the problem. City officials estimate that 15% – 20% of the 88,000 lights in the Motor City are not working, and they acknowledge the figure could be as high as 50% in some neighborhoods. Providing lighting to the city costs $10.7 million annually. And often when they are fixed, they break down weeks and months later — or thieves steal the high-grade cable for its copper materials.
The Census Bureau has now fixed at 2041 the year when whites become a minority in a country where the Founding Fathers had restricted citizenship to free white persons of good moral character
In every presidential election since 1992, Hispanics have given 60% – 70% of their votes to the Democratic candidate. Hispanics, largely poor and working class, are beneficiaries of a cornucopia of government goods — from free education to food stamps to free health care. Few Latinos pay federal income taxes. Most immigrants now come from Third World countries and do not bring the academic or professional skills of European-Americans. The decline in academic test scores here at home and in international competition is likely to continue, as more and more of the children taking those tests will be African-American and Hispanic. For though we have spent trillions over four decades, we have not closed the racial gap in education. White and Asian children continue to outscore black and Hispanic children. In addition, the Hispanic illegitimacy rate is 51% while the black rate is 71%. Sociologist Robert Putnam found that the greater the racial and ethnic diversity in a community, the less social capital there is — i.e., people in diverse settings are far less disposed to cooperate for social goals. They retreat into enclaves of their own kind. Putnam found social capital at the lowest level he ever measured in Los Angeles, the most diverse community on earth. Yet, by 2042, the demography of every American city will approximate that of Los Angeles. In short, a non-white America is a Third World America.
In addition, 80% of U.S. population growthbetween now and mid-century will be from new immigrants and their U.S.-born children. Also, over the course of their lifetimes, most immigrants will receive more Social Security benefits than they pay in Social Security taxes. Many legal immigrants enter the country at fairly advanced ages. These folks do very well by Social Security. Some work for as little as ten years and yet receive 70% – 80% of the benefit received by comparable native-born workers who have contributed to the system over their entire working lifetime. George Borjas, the Harvard economist, finds that Social Security is an important factor in the decision to come to this country. Older immigrants know that if they do not work long enough to qualify for Social Security, a safety net of welfare programs is there for them.

Mexican cartels are recruiting Texas high school students to support their drug, human, currency and weapon smuggling operations on both sides of the Texas/Mexico border, the Texas Department of Public Safety has said
The departmentissued a news release warning parents that their children are at risk to Mexican cartels and have been since 2009. Several incidents involving U.S. teens and Mexican drug cartels recently prompted the statement, Steven McCraw, the department’s director, said. “In ’09 we started seeing that happening with the bridge cases, when the cartels started getting our teenage students to move drugs across the bridge,” McCraw said. “Texas teenagers provide unique compatibility to the cartels. They’re U.S. citizens, they speak Spanish, they’re able to operate on both sides of the border and they’re expendable labor.” Because they’re juveniles, it’s not likely that they’ll be charged by the federal prosecutors, he said. Recently, Texas officers caught a 12-year-old boy in a border county driving a stolen pickup truck containing more than 800 pounds of marijuana. Also, two other juveniles from the Rio Grande Valley were lured into Mexico and kidnapped, eventually being released after a ransom was paid by the families, according to McCraw. “There’s some indication that they were subjected to the temptations to working with the gangs and cartels,” he said. Teens are sometimes offered as little as $50 to act as drivers for the cartels or the local gangs who support them, McCraw said. The Texas border region represents 9.7% of the state’s population, yet has 19.2% of the state’s juvenile felony drug referrals and 21.8% of the state’s juvenile felony gang referrals, according to the release.
A study of the ethnically diverse country of Switzerland, shows that political and geographical boundaries have served to keep the peace between the different groups
Switzerland, the very modern symbol of a peaceful country, might have gone another direction, were it not for the way the differing groups (French, German and Italian) and religions (Catholic and Protestant) have been physical grouped within the borders of the small country. Those of German descent make up the largest group, taking up most of the north, central and eastern parts of the country while those with Italian backgrounds live predominately in the south; those of French descent have settled mainly in the west. Not surprisingly, those of the Catholic faith live predominately in the southern and middle parts of the country, due to the influx of those of Italian descent, while those of the Protestant faith live mainly in the rest of the country. In Switzerland, areas of the country are partitioned into what are known as cantons, which are similar to states in other countries except that each has much more autonomy than is usual. Researchers found that the main reason the groups all manage to get along, is because they are separated from one another. Each canton is comprised of almost all the same types of people, essentially ruling themselves, thus, there is very little overlap. The research does shed a rather bright light on the idea that simple separation can lead to peace. Maybe we should try this here in the United States as a way of dealing with our nation’s racial problems?
