I’ve long said that in any given nation, the race/ethnicity/religion that is socioeconomically dominant will be the demographic group that commits the most — and the most egregious — prejudice.

This goes for all of humanity. We are all human.

As I showed in the article, American Whites are in decline. European Whites will also decline, if more slowly. Asians as a whole — and Chinese in particular — are in ascendance. This doesn’t give any comfort to the world’s Blacks, but it does mean that we Whites will get our comeuppance as the generations pass.

Voltaire once pointed out that nations climb stairs wearing wooden clogs, and walk downstairs wearing silk slippers. The metaphor is obvious — when nations are forced to strive and compete, they progress…but once they’re on top, they stop striving and competing as they once had, and so begin to decline.

The same may apply to races, but I’m not sure of that yet.
