Comments on: A comeback for the American melting pot? http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2010/06/18/a-comeback-for-the-american-melting-pot/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Andymc7 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2010/06/18/a-comeback-for-the-american-melting-pot/#comment-31113 Tue, 20 Jul 2010 17:47:16 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=7330#comment-31113 I believe the stark differences is races and classes facing us today is proof that there is not a melting pot. The melting pot existed when all people that formed this nation came together. They were from all over the world and immigrated before things were established and they bonded because of it.

Now its us versus them. The NAACP calls tea parties racist because they disagree with a black president – not because he leans so far left he’s about to fall over. Legal immigrants protest enforcing laws against ILLEGAL immigration. There is so much division in this nation I don’t think anything can bring it back together.

As evidence to my point about classes being against each other. 46% of the country paid no taxes in 2009. google it @ emint.com. Major problem. The wealthy pay the taxes and the lower incomes collect it leading to anger between groups. The wealthy are tired of supporting ‘lazy’ people and those who receive entitlements want more and have become dependent upon this redistribution.

thoughts?

Most immigrants were not educated, at any point in history, because the educated rarely have a need to travel great distances as their resources provide multiple regional options. For the most part immigrants have been labourer, from the irish to the asians, and over time acquired new skill and built there educational foundation. Now 50% of all asians in the US have college degrees or higher…..who wouldve thought wed come so far from teh ppl who worked for dollars a month on a suicide construction project for those who claimed superiority…..31% degrees? Have fun in the future…

White people in America have been coddled for a long time and we have some definite rude awakenings to reality coming for us. One of them is the reality of racial differences.

If we will not accept the facts by simply learning them as they are, then we will accept them when they are chasing us down with machetes. Take a good look at what’s happening to the Whites in S. Africa. It’s on its way here too.

Persons in a work environment, using traditional American ethics, try to improve their efficiency through quite conversations involving manners and pride. Lower class african-Americans (tendency to be cool, talk loud about their gossip), immigrant mestizos (tendency to giggle & retain their machosim) and do not forget the new tolerance of cell phones at work, simply disrupt and fill the workplace with feelings of futility for production. So yes assimilation is what made America what it was. Now the cultures of other, not so prosperous economies, are being recreated here. This will in effect bring the same maladies that helped their native economies, not prosper. However, forgive what I have said, as America is now for taking advantage of the people who want to have fun, rather than be informed.

They let the ultraliberals give us Vietnam and a change in the Immigration laws. This combined with TV, drugs and pollution helped guarantee America’s inevitable decline.

There is no arguing with it – it is fact.

You don’t exactly seem appropriately verbose to look down your nose at the rest of the population. And I have no idea what the marriage comment is even talking about.

@Rexter: Do everyone a favor and just go move to Palestine. Your comment is silly. It sounds like a 9 year old trying to be argumentative, except its being ridiculous about complex political issues rather than watching TV shows for older kids. …Wow. Your second comment actually leaves me having no idea where you stand. I thought you were being facetious at first. Okay you obviously won’t like it in Palestine. Go to Canada.

Whites are the only group where genocide is openly discussed, albeit in code-terms like “diversity” and “multiculturalism.” Yet “diversity” is never discussed in Israel, Mexico, Africa, Japan, or ANYWHERE other than the US or White nations.

Hey, if Israel can do it, why can’t we? We can’t support it in Israel with our tax dollars and not have it here. This is a White homeland. You just have to declare it like the Jews have done for Israel, right? Which is it – make a decision.

Even the salad analogy fails: the first black Americans were slaves and Native Americans were nearly exterminated. For all the pundits heralding the arrival of a post-racial society, you got another thing coming. As the research shows, interracial marriage amongst whites is decreasing while amongst all other minority groups it is increasing. As the immigration reform bill controversy in Arizona has proven, race is still a hot issue in America.
