In the end, if we devolve into a multicultural society, we will have the same political instability as other multicultural societies.


American culture is being replaced by tribalism (multiculturalism) as long as it advances the causes of the liberal elites.
Right...and wrong. I don't think that tribalism and divisiveness is a goal of American liberals. It is simply a way to pit Americans against each other and work to destroy this nation....which is the real goal. Tribalism via multiculturalism is simply one tool at their disposal.

Mixed Race is also the 2nd fastest growing racial group in the U.S after Asians seems like Multiculturalism is working perfectly fine. Mixed Race is the fastest growing population in the U.K as well.

I still wouldn't feel safe going into Compton. On paper it might be safer than back then, but if you are Black, it was never really safe. Blacks were always being killed. Now, I don't blame this on multiculturalism. I blame it on gangs, criminality, and individuals having a bigoted, racist mindset. I'm cool with hanging out with Hispanic individuals. For this reason, I don't want to have to worry about any tensions between Blacks and Hispanics, as a Black person.

Oh here we go. The monolithic satanic “Liberal” is responsible for everything wrong in America. No one else is involved. Here we see how authoritarian leaders and their followers create a scapegoat to blame everything on. Suggested reading the European holocaust and or the Rwadan genocide.

Think Tower of Babel.
Boy, you can't seem to get anything right.

https://www12.statcan.gc.ca/nhs-enm/...011001-eng.cfm

Takeaways: over 19% - 1 in every 6 of Canada's population identifies as a recognizable minority. 30.9% of those were Canadian born and 65.1% are immigrants.

Fully 26% of Canada's population is foreign born as compared to 13.4% in U.S.

Hardly "lily white".

Petty partisan politics divide, not unite people... think stunted mental developement!

The "Bowling Alone" book by liberal author Robert Putnam provided a similar conclusion as well.

According to the OP, they should not have imported those illiterate folks from the Isles who were indentured servants and then settled in the Appalachians. They were not in any way related to the type of people who founded this country.

Basically, the OP doesn't believe in the USA. He also doesn't really believe in even Russia, since they themselves have cast off anyone who doesn't fit their mold.

He might only be happy in some Eskimo tribe or with a deep wood Amazon original people.

Division/differences does not make for a united country. It has nothing to do with being weak minded it's a fact. As long as a country can retain its identifying culture and language without minority ones seeking to change it to theirs by their sheer numbers then it can work under that concept but otherwise, no!
