    I'm not afraid at all. The United States has always been a melting pot for all races.

      Well the question wasn't why are you afraid but about those who are or seem to be afraid

    I think the fear comes from a loud group that fears that the "White, Anglo Saxon, Christian Male" is going to die out. And they have taken it upon themselves to speak for all Whites, Anglo Saxons and Christians. You have these of type people in all countries. They fear losing their identity as a people and don't seem realize the racial and cultural make up of a country and even a family often changes, unless it has been isolated in some way. It's not a bad thing it's a human thing.

    The only reason it continues is because of fear of the unknown perpetrated by those who see change as the enemy. But in all honesty it is not only this group that is guilty of xenophobia it is ingrained in most of us, and minorities are just as guilty of this type of thinking.

    I think the media and the internet feeds their fears also and strengthens them because they can connect with like thinkers who share their fears. Many of these people got out of the election coverage that Obama won only because minorities voted for him and they ignore the fact he had a 39 percent showing among white voters which matched the percentage that Bill Clinton received in 1992 and without this white vote he would not have won is a mute point to them.

      Very insightful honest analysis

    Your question is what is racist.  You just classifed an entire race of people as being majority racist.  Are Blacks racist because they voted more than 95% for the President ???  Whites didn't vote in that high a % for Gov Romney. 

    I for one am not concerned about what the color of the country is.  I am however concerned about legal and illegal immigration.  Not because most are not white.  But rather because politicians are using this type of immigration and demographic changes to increase the entitlement state.  We don't have policies that recruit the brightest engineers, scientists, and other professionals.  We instead import people and immediately place large masses on of them on entitlement programs that generations before them paid for.  Furthermore we have legal immigration policies that make it easier for people from South America, Africa and Asia to come to the US.  While Europeans must in some nations have to win a lottery system to come here.  It as though we intentionally import non-whites.  Why not instead focus on quality workers with skill sets that can benefit our country instead of looking at where in the world they come from ???  It's the policy itself that is now reverse discrimination.

    I have a very good friend of the family who came to the US from Germany after having been a very successful small business owner their.  He came to the US for more economic freedom.  And he has done quite well since he got here.  He had built to successful companies and employs many people.  Exactly what we should be looking for.  Yet because he was German he had to first win the lottery system they had at the time.  INS made it almost impossible for him to get here.  It was ridiculous.  But if you sneak across the border and give birth in a US hospital, the taxpayer gets stuck with the tab along with all the other social services that we have to pay for when it's unskilled labor.   For most people I know, this is an ECONOMIC concern, not a racial one.

      The First world makes it hard for every other first world citizen to relocate to their countries. You would have the same hard time moving to Germany your friend had moving here. It is silly but not just a US Government issue.

      Not Really..Us citizens can move to the more developed parts of europe and earn legal citizenship alot easier than they can come here. Late time I checked, US immigration policy mandated only 15% of legal immigration can come from Europe.

      Well I am speaking about the Old EU, like Germany, Austria, France the UK not the new less developed members who are looking US dollars to invest there.

      That's the point. The Old EU citizens have to jump threw more hoops to get here.  We make it harder on them then other regions.  We should be looking at the inidividal and what they offer the country. The last thing the US needs is more dependents.

      A lot of the people come from other parts of the world are refugees or have some sort of hardship status, you know those yearning to be free, many running for their lives.

      Underwstood, but we're ar not in a fiscal postion to take in everyone anymore.  This is not the early 1900's.  This country is fully developed and needs to weed people out that will help us fiscally, not drain us. There just aren't enough reources.

      You can't assume all non Europeans entering are a drain on the resources, in fact  the help they receive is limited to a short time period and most of them find jobs. I know we have a problem but we can lay  it all on the back of immigrants.

      I don't assume that.  I jsut want us to be more strict about who we take in and what they offer before they get here no matter were there from.  INS policy should target the economic needs of the nation.  Not who you can pander to for votes.

      I agree! their do need to be changes unfortunately the whole first world is facing ever increasing refugee numbers... so maybe we should become part of the solution to decrease those numbers.

      I just don't see why the US, which borrows 40 cents on every dollar should be the ones responsible for everyone else's problems.  There just isn't enough money in existence to pay for all the things we promise our own citizens as it is.

      You say " You just classifed an entire race of people as being majority racist" I think you're over reacting. I said "so many" white people. If you think  "so many" means an entire race of people. You have a problem my friend

      Our foreign policy has contributed to the refugee problem as has Europe. Most of these places are rich in oil, precious minerals and other goods but how many own them? That is why we have to think globally, what one country does effects others.

      I'd disagree.  They've done quite well from selling these natural resources to us.  The US taxpayer spends billions of dollars annually to foreign nations that deplete our wealth, not the other way around.

    It's in the scriptures actually.  Luke 21:24 "24 and they will fall by the edge of the sword, and will be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled under foot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled."  This scripture was fulfilled in 2009 when Barack Obama was sworn in.  It was the first time that a non-gentile has ruled the world since Alexander killed King Darius of Medo-Persia.  When Tea Partiers say they want their country back, what they are actually saying is that they want rulership back.  The 2012 election illustrates that the reign of the white protestant male is over.  That's why this is such a painful transition for our white brothers and sisters.  If you keep reading in Luke, you'll see that we have come to the end of the age and Judgement.

    Some Caucasian Americans see the increasing of the non-Caucasian population in the United States as a threat to their hegemony.  They contend that the United States is a Caucasian nation, THEIR nation.  It is this percentage of Caucasians who fear racial diversification of America is antithethical to the old American paradigm.   However, many Caucasians do not view the increasing racial diversification of America as a threat.  In fact, they see this racial diversification as an advancement and enrichening of American society.
