We have others who are advocating confiscating the hard-earned money of middle-income whites to fund reparations and downpayments to black people, give rent subsidies to the lower-middle class so that their lifestyle can equal or exceed the professional middle-class, give illegal immigrants in-tuition discounts ahead of Americans, and condemn anyone who criticizes someone who happens to be a POC for behavior as being driven by racism.

We still have a chance - a good chance - as normal voters see what's happening and push back. We can narrow the margin in the House (keep talking, Squad members!), keep the Senate, hold on to the presidency - and stop this dangerous and destructive path the liberals have set us on.
Why do you act like all middle-income people are “white”?

Quote the post where I even implied the "encouraging of illegals to enter", or is your strawman wearing no clothes a deliberate repetitive tactic?

And to respond to your irrelevant reference of my living in Canada: is it your contention Canada sees no ill effects from your self induced and Republican encouraged illegal entry?

Do you think anybody WANT'S illegals to enter their country other than the people from the one country which for eons and multiple generations benefitted exponentially from their cheap labour offering?

I don't. I know you're eager to find some racism, but I was specifically saying that WHITES will be paying reparations for BLACKS, if the libs have their way. In the other examples, I did not mention whites.

No. You are the one doing that by insinuating that nonwhite middle class people don’t exist. You just did it again. Middle class is not limited to only one race of American. Form 1040 doesn’t ask which race you are. ALL must pay if you have the income.

How do you know that reparations would be limited to whites? The point is moot- reps won’t happen.

America was historically a white country, and it isn't racist of me to say it should remain a white country. That doesn't mean we can't welcome immigrants, provide global aid, and strive for equality. It simply means we focus on an American first agenda that doesn't include throwing the government coffers open to take in the entirety of the third world.
This has NEVER historically been a white country at no point in our history. Whites came here and found a continent with millions of non white people. At no point was this ever a white country. And it will never be a white country. Then, whites brought over Africans and welcomed Asians to come over and help with expansion.

You just gotta deal with it. This is not a white country. Our government traditions may be rooted in European precepts, but that’s about it.

You're "straight up black"? There's no mention in your family stories about "a white man or woman"? And you believe everything you've heard---bless your heart. So, why are you so terrified of taking a DNA test? If you are so confident that you have no white blood, then the test will confirm that for you. I can assure you that family stories aren't always accurate. Over time, the stories get changed or someone forgets something or was never told the whole story. Unless your family has, for several generations, kept a written copy with many details, you won't get the full picture.

My 'immigrant ancestors" LOL! Not just my "immigrant ancestors", yours, too.

You see the population chart in the OP. Then you know that over 100 years ago we had plenty of room to expand. Also, we were an industrial and agrarian society. Many Americans as well as immigrants were illiterate. In such a society, it was much easier to find unskilled work. Plus, back then, there was no welfare so Americans and immigrants alike knew that for them, it was either sink or swim.
I don’t need s DNA test. I’m black. That’s not important anyway. I’m not a descendant of immigrants. Deal with it.

This country still has plenty of room for millions of immigrants. And we’re gonna keep taking them in. It can’t be stopped. I know you’re scared like many conservative whites, but maybe you should just get help for that.

NO I didn't. You read that into my post because you're accusing everyone of racism.

And of course it would be whites paying reparations to blacks. You think blacks would have to pay reparations to each other?

Jeez, but liberals are so eager to paint everyone who disagrees with socialist policies as a racist that they don't even make sense.

Hmmm...Anyone who is afraid to take a DNA test for fear that s/he most likely will find out that s/he has some white blood in them is a racist. The reverse also holds true for a white person who is terrified to find out that s/he has some black blood in them.

You have no idea if any of your ancestors were "immigrants" and are terrified to find out. Deal with it

Did you even bother to read the link from "The Root" that I posted for you? If not, why not? Are you unable to keep an open mind when it comes to this issue? SMH Whatever :shrug: with these posts of yours, you've shown your true colors (no pun intended).

It's been explained to you that we don't have "plenty of room for millions [more] immigrants", yet you keep saying otherwise despite the evidence being stacked against you. Keep it up. It only makes you look more foolish.

Yet everyday illegals either sneak across the border or overstay visas, which leads some to believe that there could be up to 30 million of them here.
I was being facetious. My point was, Americans are having a ton of kids.

A lot of "space" is in uninhabitable and would require more natural resources to sustain it. I don't wish us to be like India where we are stacked in like sardines and no natural environment for wildlife, forestry, etc. It's also takes a lot of social resources to sustain a nation such as medical practicioners, jobs, etc. We already have too many low paying burger joints on every corner that won't support a family.

No one is scared of demographic change when it is diversified, in controlled numbers and done legally. What country in the world would want demographic change due to illegal immigration. Are you kidding me????
^^^^I couldn't rep you again, Oldglory, but well said

It's amazing to me that there are those who don't get it when it comes to this issue. They refuse to believe that we don't have unlimited potable water nor do we have unlimited buildable land.

I wasn't sure if you were being facetious. Besides, it isn't Americans who, overall, that are having "a ton of kids". The exception being poor Americans who deliberately choose to bring children into this world all the while knowing that they can't properly feed, clothe or shelter them. Otherwise, it's the illegal aliens and third world immigrants who are having "a ton of kids" that they can't support.

The pro-illegal alien/invasion cheerleaders/open borders crowd claim we need to bring in more "immigrants" because Americans aren't having enough kids.

Or, are you being "facetious" again?
