But no one's making an argument. No one's saying how it's wrong. And they can't, because it's not.

There's never anything wrong with wanting your home to stay the same. It's scary to think that some people think otherwise. No, you do not have a right to transform people's worlds, and those who object to such transformation are the good guys.

Later, she's interviewed by a news reporter:

So, we don't have any ALL black communities?

Is gentrification wrong? What about social segregation/population replacement by means of adjusting property taxes? Those are staples of Americana.

Would you be fine if a Mayor had said "We should keep this city clean from Whites"?
Would you?

Government officials have a duty to protect their constituents from diversity. People thrive in homogeneity, and people need their own territory.
The government should not be involved at all in deciding where people live.

Well the government shouldn't be deciding that masses of people from all over the world get to come and live in the US. And definitely shouldn't decide illegal, uninvited and unauthorized people get to stay and live here.

If one believes in freedom of association, freedom of conscious and majority rule, or really believes in diversity then one has to believe in the right of communities even nations deciding to be homogenous.

That mayor would be canonized by the white haters and SJW!

Anti-white is right; criticizing black is whack!!
Eliminate those glacier monkeys and make America Wakanda
Black Panther was the Greatest Motion Picture EVER!! You disagree? You deserve shame, doxxing and ridicule, you KKK-level racist!!
Being proud of your race is great- unless you're white- then it's white supremacy!!
Separation of church and state is great!! - unless it's Islam.
^^^^^
kinda exclusionary and biased isn;t it? in 2091 it's WOKE!!
Flip the script and it's hate speech!
Is THIS what society has become??? All the hateful anti-white or anti-male rhetoric-if you replace "white" or "male" with "black" "female", "Muslim", "Illegal Immigrant" and it goes from Cool and woke, to racist hate speech!! REALLY?

2+2= 4 It isn't racist to tell a non-white that 2+2 isn't 5!!!! Yet disagreeing with an non-white, Non-Xtian is called exactly that!!
Retroactive social Justice is just plain old bigotry and discrimination-no matter what the self loathing Caucs or racist non-whites say
Saying it's ok cause slavery-um well, in THAT case, I must compliment millions of POC for being SO young looking for being over 180 years old!!! I MUST know your secret. I doubt being hateful is crucial for that youthful look
Innocent people paying for "the sins of their fathers" is hateful no matter how you slice it. YT deserves it for their "white privilege"??? hmm I thought grouping an ENTIRE race of peopel for the actions of a perceived majority is, well, racist isn;t it?
Or is it only when whites do it?
My cousin was murdered for being white- his killers laughingly admitted it. I was told to "get over it" and "don't judge ALL blacks by the hateful actions of three" and they were 10000% right!!

Yet the reverse is ok? Those perceived as Self hating whites are "woke" while the reverse are scorned as "Uncle Tom's"

I admit it's too easy to get caught up in all this-I did. But truth is, is the whole world treated others the way they themselves would want to be treated, this stuff would cease.
If you have to use hate and double standards to make your points-you don't have a good one. That goes for ALL races/genders/faiths

I do think something is wrong with what she said, and I'm not ashamed to feel that way. Nothing you say will make me feel ashamed. Jean Cramer is a bigot, period.

I don't have any respect for Nagin and Reconquista either.
