People live, work, and feel comfortable among their own kind. Goes for any race. Call it whatever you want, but it is what it is

That's fine as long as they are here legally and don't segregate themselves by colonizing rather than assimilating into mainstream America.

No Im talking about countries with both multiethnic culture and races. Everyone is afraid to say it, but history has shown its a failed concept......it doesnt work. It leads to racism more than there already is...strife...wars....etc. The problem isnt going away by having a large "melting pot"....the melting pot makes it worse, whether its the United States or any country.

I'm not just talking about Mexicans coming across the border...I can go all the way to whites conquering the Indians, and assimilating into their land.......and even in parts of America that were once Mexico

If races were seperate, would the world be having the problems it has now? Would it be worse than being multiethnic? I think the answer is obviously no. If you think different to be politically correct than you are mistaken. This goes for any culture or race. I really think we were never meant to intermingle.

Wow! So the hood and robe are unveiled. Pardon me, but I would not exist if not for the “intermingling” of races.

Well, of course there has always been some racism and clashing of cultures when the different races/ethnic groups live side by side that is just human nature I guess but I think it works for the most part just as long as there is one identifying culture and language that unifies, a goal for the common good in a society and being bound together by nationalistic pride.

It is when you have two or more cultures of people competing for dominance that I think problems arise. Massive illegal immigraton is one of the ways that this occurs. Having a common culture and language that unifies while the different ethnic groups still practice some of the cultures of their ancestors is not a problem to me.
