    I just discovered that only 32% of the residents of my city, Federal Way WA, are American Whites. 10% are Ukrainian, which are white, but I'm not sure they count. Either way, whites are now a minority in this city. Can I start crying racism now?

    NO, you are not a protected class, though as a woman you have some protection.

    You know, if I was younger, I'd make a joke out of that...hard to do though when you're already going through the change, dang it...it's such a great set up too. :D

    What a very, very weird statement.

    Welcome to my world. Though I presently reside in a highly populated suburb, Cleveland Ohio is 3 streets away from me. I believe the push for forced racial equality has completely anihilated the city. When there is a mayoral race it is all Dems that run against eachother and often it appears for appointed positions, the color of skin is more important than the quality of the person. Good intentions out weigh ability. The school system is so out of control now that only the poorest of the poor attend it and the superintendant of schools does not call snow days for fear these kids will miss a meal. The city truthfully only has about 20% whites at present. You can point out a street on a map, go ride down that street and see at least 2 houses that have been foreclosed. This is what socialist policies do to strong cities. There is no denying what did this to Cleveland. It was not black people's fault or white people, it was socialism. When you force people to live a way they do not want to live, those with the capability flee toward freedom and those incapable suffer.

    Those Ukrainians aren't bad people, but they will leave when they find their feet.

    Blaming 'socialism' would perhaps make more sense in a country which had - at some point in its entire history - experienced some measure of 'socialism'.

    The US has never experienced socialism. Not now, not at any point in its history.

    Don't believe me?

    Ask an Ukrainian what the Great Famine was.

    I admit, I used socialism in place of racial preference and forced integration but.. When anyone spoke against these policies they were quickly labeled and ostracized. Very common tactics found in communist countries actually.

    Certainly I agree that concepts such as 'affirmative action' are ideologically socialist to some extent, particularly given Stalin himself triumphed the line of 'many peoples, one nation', which is not a million miles away from the concept.

    It's just such a shame that concepts such as 'affirmative action' have been well intentioned and genuinely positive, and have no doubt helped a lot of minority kids into colleges etc, but have also come as a part of policies which have ghettoised perfectly decent neighbourhoods.

    But reducing everything to colour is not particularly useful - there are plenty of white people we wouldn't want as neighbours either, and plenty of black people who we would want at neighbours.

    When I was growing up, I lived one street over from a housing project for mostly welfare recipients. It was good a neighborhood for the most part. We all played sports together, ate lunch at eachother's houses etc... I mean fun times, joking laughing occasional fights and what have ya. Once anything racial came across the tv screen where white people were shitty to blacks white kids in my neighborhood could not walk without looking over their shoulders. Running from the same people who only last week we played a football game with. You're a 15 yr old white kid running from 18-24 yr old black men.

    When black guys beat up white people race was never mentioned on the news. This is the truth, not stretched, not made up. I lived it. Unfortunately race is an issue when it comes down to brass tacks on what happened in Cleveland Ohio. Blacks were pawns in a scheme that went bad imho. They were played.

    Europeans are the minority in a lot of cities and villages across the United States thanks to lax immigration policies. It was inevitable and I don't see the course reversing anytime soon with the current administration. It is really up to us to whether stay the course or change it. I believe one of the founding fathers said that whenever our government becomes destructive to us, it's our duty to put down that government and install a new one that doesn't work against our interests.
