Yes? They have what to do with mass globalized immigration?

I don't know- what about the black people who were in America before the Revolution, perhaps they can stay as well.

I don't know anyone who cares about diluting the white race (which also dilutes other races, by the way) except for racists.

What do you care?
Why would that happen? It hasn't happen in 400 years. It didn't completely happen in Latin America. And to the extent that it did, Latin America isn't something the US would want to emulate.

Is America and the West the only nations that are required to be blended? Wouldn't it be racist for the rest of the world to not be blended? I find your ideas very odd and biologically ignorant.

Ancestry.com and all those DNA testing resources have just about done that. No one is "pure as the driven snow". I am sure A major portion of people living in the US today have at least some Black "blood".

Except not.

With respect to European Americans, the percentages are much more different than African Americans or Latinos, with European American genomes being 98.6*percent*European, 0.19 percent*African and 0.18*percent*Native American.
Just so you understand that doesn't mean white Americans all have a tiny sliver of non-European ancestry. It means most of them have none.

Besides which no one said anything about being pure race to begin with. That is a complete strawman argument. Black Americans are less "pure" black than whites are pure white, but they self identify as black and even Barrack Obama identified as a black man.

Why is that even important, a hundred years down the road not one race will be pure, is that the concern here, to maintain European purity.

Just inserting a little fact and science. That America is going to be a multi-minority country and will have distinct racial groups. I don't know why pure race is brought up, but evidence says they will remain in America.

Lets talk about all the Irish slaves, how Africans forced slavery upon white nations, and how ant colonies can enslave conquered ant colonies or how the bible doesn't explicitly condemn slavery so it's not morally wrong.
Not a "gotcha topic" at all, more of a "there's many sides of an issue" topic. In other words (if you'll forgive the pun) it's not as black and white nor simple as it's made out to be.

It hasn't happened in 400 years because during 360 of those years this was unacceptable. Even in Italy it was frowned upon when peasants in the south wanted to marry richer northerners.

It's a brand new day. Groups mingle, people are exposed to those in other races and those who care about interracial dating or marriage are in the minority.

White isn't likely to be all white for too much longer.

That's probably true.

I don't know why I find it so funny that the thought of a 100% white race becoming extinct bothers some people, but I do.
