They're entitled to their preferences.


Do you mean like Cher?

The constitution doesn't really speak to immigration and multiculturalism.
You seem to think you have the right to control who your neighbors are or are not. You don't, your desire to live in a monoculture would impinge upon the rights of other US citizens by denying where they can live. It would also violate the Fair Housing Act.

One thing I will add is that with my father seemingly having racist view it's actually funny but as he got older he mellowed out. We have in our immediate and extended family a lot of non-whites. Black people, Asian people and Latin people. I remember how my dad used to dote on one of his great nieces. She's half black and white and seeing a pic of her she had this great big smile and was cuter than hell. I think that little girl helped my dad, helped him to see the error of his ways.


I had hoped so. He passed away about three years ago now.

If you spend any time on C-D you will most definitely encounter people who think that the white race is better than all others.

But even the Japanese Nationality law recognizes that children born in Japan, to those who are not ethnically Japanese are Japanese by nationality.
Duh I know there's two meanings nationality and ethnicity, and I'll add cultural. I'm saying you can't become ethnically something just by living among thus who are. The Japanese are a distinct ethnicity of the Asian race.

As a westerner who grew up in an Asian country, I can tell you point blank, you are wrong. The children who are born, raised, and grow up in a country their parents immigrated to will have more in common with their fellow citizens than those from the country their parents immigrated from. I get that you FEEL that isn't the case, and you are entitled to your feelings but your feelings are not facts.
That's not my point. On average and in general people in a country of the same ethnicity will have more in common with each other than they will with people of other ethnicities residing in the country.

I used to, but I don't think they are anymore. But one of my best friends stepbrother is a true white supremacist. He is among the "top dogs" for a whole organisation ( or whatever it's called ) in Germany and Sweden. He is a bad person.

I disagree. I think they think they are better than MOST others. They don't think they are inferior to any, however. Its only the "Asians" that they feel are as "Smart" as they are. To me white supremacy is simply believing that the white race is superior to one or more other races. In the context of black/white relationships, white supremacy is the belief that whites are superior to blacks. In regards to Asians....I don't think whites feel superior to Asians.....and because of this many might not feel they are "Supremacist" because such a label would mean they feel superior to all races without exception. It's akin to some people thinking they are not racist against blacks.....because they have one or more black friends. In other words, racism is to have no exceptions to the rule in their minds.

I would tend to agree, I don't think that there's a racist lurking around every corner. I'm sure of that. Mrs. Skeffington's post is probably a bit closer to the truth. Not sure how much of that is class based versus race based. Maybe a bit of both, I don't know.

I think that her post is probably more true than I'd like it to be. I'll be honest in that I don't like living near poverty. I grew up a bit on the poorer side and I've worked hard to get into a nice solid middle classs lifestyle and I don't wanna be around all of that. I have no active dislike for them, It's just depressing to be around poverty and homeless people and seeing all of our societal ills. It's like they are everywhere now. You can't go to a store or mall without running the gauntlet of people hitting you up for money and whatnot.

And you don't seem to think you have the right to essentially pick who our neighbors, classmates, coworkers etc will be by advocating for open borders, mass immigration and multiculturalism lol?

I haven't said anything about where Americans can live within America. But now that you mentioned it, I don't think you are the government should tell people how they can handle their private property.
