How is that being done?

Anyway race/ethnicity is always the scapegoat to change the underlining issue.

Yes, it makes the headlines with the liberal, pro-multi-culterism, pro-massive immigration crowd that are licking their chops at the prospect of a white minority in this country. Thanks for pointing that out.

Race IS part of the underlying issue...sorry to inform you.

If 12 million non English speaking Swedes were invading the border, this conversation would still exist, but the tone would be different.

But by the same token, if The Congo was our border neighbor instead of Mexico, that border fence would've been built a century ago and high enough that an airplane couldn't get over it...let alone a human.

I mean, lets keep it real and at least be truthful about where we stand. Geez.

It is so sad that folk believe...have beed sold a myth... that they are the owners of country they barely know. How sad for these people to believe they are losing something they never had and never was thiers.

You're flattering yourself...no one is spending their precious hours thinking about the fate of white people. Please. It ain't that serious. Hate to burst that narcissist bubble you're in.

White majority, white minority...who gives a damn.

Hardly true. Refusing to reward criminal behavior, and knowing that in rewarding it, it will not only continue, but increase, is what is behind anti-amnesty.

I support 100% legal immigration, and hate amnesty because it is punishing those immigrants that are playing by the rules. And they are hardly "white", I'm thinking.

The truth is that the left supports criminal behavior. This issue makes that abundantly clear.

So one should conform to "this country?" What does that even mean? And why should anyone conform to others "out of respect of the country?" That is just a slap in the face to personal freedom.

Every other race would feel the same way...threatened. Whites have traditionally been able to ignore blacks, Asians, and other minorities, but now they're up against a group they CAN'T ignore.

To be real with you, I understand the fear at first glance, but if you look at it deeper, the fears are dumb. Senseless. Hispanics after a few generations will morph into regular old white people through intermarriage, upward mobility, social mobility, education, etc...unlike blacks (with some exceptions), they greatly admire white people even if they don't come right out and say it. Whiteness is prized in Latin America...it's something to aspire to.

So really, the fears are kinda silly, but whatever. I'm not in it...I'll just remain a neutral bystander in that argument.
How dare you. You're the first one to scream "racism" and abhor the fact that all people of color are lumped together. Yet here you are, doing just that, in a disgusting and false way.

Neutral bystander? You owe me a computer monitor. That laughable comment just made me spit my coffee everywhere.

This is exactly how they think. They think they are more American than anyone else. They believe that they are the "real Americans". The rest of us are just messing up their country.

We ARE more American than criminals that sneek into our country and have not gone through the process to become a US citizen. THEY ARE NOT AMERICANS.
