Apparently you don’t realize that even if we stopped *all* immigration today, America will still be majority-minority within a few decades. It’s not the immigration that’s changing it, but the declining birth rates of whites as compared to the birth rates of nonwhites.

What’s more, you should read up on what’s happening to Japan, since they (like America’s white population) have a declining birth rate (and in 2024, white deaths will outpace white births for that very reason). In Japan, many elderly have no one to take care of them, and it’s increasingly common for no one to know that they’ve passed away until their neighbors begin to notice a certain smell. If you had your way and all the nonwhites went away, that’s the kind of future most whites would have staring us in the face — no one to take care of us when we’re old.

I know the kind of mindset you have all too well. One of our family acquaintances was US Sen. James O. Eastland, who was twice president pro tem and was for a generation the most powerful racist in America. He lived just down the road from us, my grandmother worked for him in his plantation commissary, and I attended one of the schools of the “segregation academy system” he started in response to Brown v. Board of Education.

So your claim is nothing new to me, nothing I haven’t heard before, and nothing that I didn’t say myself a long time ago when I thought the same way you did.

But then I joined the Navy, saw the world, and realized that people really are the same, all over the world. I saw how wrong, how evil racism is. That’s why Mark Twain said:

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”

One last thing. I’ve got a nephew I helped to come here from the Philippines. He grew up in what most Americans would consider grinding poverty. This summer he’s graduating from an Ivy League university with a degree in immunology, has interned at Harvard, and will be going straight to med school. I’ve got another nephew from the same place who’s an gas-turbine engineer on a destroyer right now. My oldest son (also full-blood Filipino) has an MBA and owns his own business.

Such are what you apparently consider “shithole people”. In my opinion, y’all just don’t want to have to compete. Third-world immigrants (legal or not) work harder and smarter than most native-born Americans of any race. It’s time you learned that fact.
