    Tyler Durden Jun 29, 2016 New research out by the Pew Research Center shows an interesting development in the United States. Using Census Bureau information released with 2014 population estimates, Pew found that the US is becoming ever more diverse, at the local level as well as nationally. In 2014, 364 counties, independent cities and other county-level equivalents did not have non-Hispanic white majorities, the most in modern history, and more than twice the level in 1980.(snip)(snip)

    The Washington Post is reporting that U.S. might not be able to follow in the U.K.s footsteps in reclaiming its economic independence because of the nations demographic makeup, which is the result of four decades of record high green card issuances to foreign nationals. In a piece entitled, No, Brexit Isnt A Good Sign For Trump, Washington Posts Kim Soffen writes.

REUTERS/Randall Hill Although a few political analysts have been focusing on the white working class for years, it is only in response to the rise of Donald Trump that this large group of Americans has begun to receive the attention it deserves. Now, thanks to a comprehensive survey that the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) undertook in collaboration with the Brookings Institution, we can speak with some precision about the...

    How much more likely is unclear, but still. Read this smart, well-researched piece by Nate Cohn challenging the conventional wisdom that there are no more white votes to be had by the GOP and therefore Trump is stuck somehow picking off minority support from Hillary if hes going to win. Not true, says Cohn. Long-term its true that a candidate who appeals almost exclusively to whites is a sure loser in a national election, but theres good reason to think that the national exit polls in 2012 understated how many white working-class voters showed up to vote that year ...

    Americans today say they are generally optimistic about their futures, according to Gallup polling. But one group in particular -- poor white Americans -- has a shockingly dismal view of what the future holds for them. And this pessimism among poor whites goes a long way toward explaining the strange political moment we find ourselves in, one in which Donald Trump surged to the top of the Republican primary ticket by tapping into a deep vein of racial anxiety among the nation's working class. Carol Graham, a happiness researcher at the Brookings Institution, recently analyzed Gallup's data on life satisfaction...

    If you had a decent history teacher in high school, you were taught that European democracies are slightly different from those in the Americas, both north and south. Democracies in this Western Hemisphere tend to be ethnic stews governed, with varying degrees of faithfulness, by constitutions and compacts. European democracies are built around nationalities tribes of same-language peoples. A President Donald Trump and his great again appeals would push us closer toward the European model than we already are, his critics contend. If theyre right, a heightened season of racial tension could be in our Southern future. Some of...

Speaking at Florida International Universitys commencement, Ms. Rice said a diversified government workforce is more likely to yield better outcomes than a predominantly white one. Referring to criticism that the U.S. national security workforce is white, male, and Yale, Ms. Rice told the graduates, In the halls of power, in the faces of our national security leaders, America is still not fully reflected.

    In a triumph of common sense, historical awareness, and crazed enthusiasm for a Broadway rap musical, the Treasury Department has announced that Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, which will void a previous decision to take Alexander "Hamilton" Hamilton off the $10. (Update, 4:45 p.m.: Treasury says there will still be some sort of image of Jackson on the back of the bill.) This is great news, and it brings up another important question: Which historical figure should our current president, Barack Hussein Obama, replace when we honor his legacy by putting him on an item...

    A 2016 Fusion Issues Poll surveyed 1,045 adults from ages 18 to 35. The survey revealed how young people feel about a number of social justice issues related to race, especially reparations. For example, 62 percent of young people say they are opposed to the government providing reparations to African-Americans for slavery, while 32 percent support the measure. However, the breakdown is much different along racial lines. For example, 62 percent of Blacks and 40 percent of Hispanics say they support reparations, while a paltry 21 percent of whites are in favor. Moreover, even when it comes to a mere...

    White women have been dying prematurely at higher rates since the turn of this century, passing away in their 30s, 40s and 50s in a slow-motion crisis driven by decaying health in small-town America, according to an analysis of national health and mortality statistics by The Washington Post. Among African Americans, Hispanics and even the oldest white Americans, death rates have continued to fall. But for white women in what should be the prime of their lives, death rates have spiked upward. In one of the hardest-hit groups rural white women in their late 40s the death rate...

    The White race has over many centuries unleashed untold mayhem on black people; but these crimes against humanity are glossed over while the world champions the causes of myriad peoples from the Jews to the Armenians. What reason could be advanced for such gross injustice other than the very racism that led to the perpetration of these crimes in the first place. The world and her jaundiced multilateral organisations can try as they might to divert the worlds attention from these ugly historical facts; but like a cork being pushed deep into the water, these truths will continue to float...

    Is the Obama administration, or at least some officials in it, hostile toward whites? This is certainly an awkward, publicly unspeakable question -- and answering it is exceptionally difficult. Not easy to discern the motives of countless Washington bureaucrats. Nevertheless, recent events outside of Baltimore, MD suggest that enmity toward whites does afflict some Obama administrators and our proof, though short of the smoking gun standard, is probably as good as it gets. In a nutshell, thanks to Washingtons money and political pressure, thousands of poor blacks will now be re-located from Baltimores slums to upgraded housing in the surrounding,...

I was talking about the concept of white privilege -- the belief that being white comes with unearned advantages and everyday perks that its recipients are often unaware of. I asked a white retiree if he believed in the existence of white privilege. He said no, but there was another type of privilege he wanted to talk about: "Black privilege."...

While Mrs. Clinton swept the five major primaries on Tuesday, she lost white men in all of them, and by double-digit margins in Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio, exit polls showed a sharp turnabout from 2008, when she won double-digit victories among white male voters in all three states. She also performed poorly on Tuesday with independents, who have never been among her core supporters. But white...

    That's the provocative thesis advanced by David Bernstein in a new piece for Politico Magazine: If Trump wins the GOP nomination, he will be testing the limits of a strategy that has long haunted the Republican Party. Since the civil rights era, the Republicans have relied heavily upon white male voters in order to overcome a disadvantage among minorities and some subsets of women. Mathematically, that was an easier strategy a half-century ago, when white men dominated the electorate. But as the GOP failed to broaden its coalition and the demographics of America have shifted dramatically, an ever-greater percentage of...

What it hasn't inspired is much in the way of self-examination, or a recognition of the way that Obama-era trends in liberal politics have helped feed the Trump phenomenon. Such a recognition wouldn't require letting the Republican Party off the hook. The Trump uprising is first and foremost a Republican and conservative problem: There would be no Trumpism if George W.

    The most interesting question this year for political junkies is who - if anyone - can rebuild Ronald Reagan's electoral coalition. Plenty of candidates would like to do it, and plenty of them want to convince America right now that they're already doing it. But the key group of voters who could make that happen are up for grabs - and they're skeptical. The big cultural story of the year, it's now clear, is how elites and intellectuals now abruptly admit that downwardly mobile middle-class whites, especially men, have become an important constituency and a political problem.

A new and quite stunning article in the Winter 2016 issue of The American Prospect (a left-of-center journal) debunks that claim and undermines the widespread faith that the Census Bureau knows what it is doing.

The rising death rates for those young white adults, ages 25 to 34, make them the first generation since the Vietnam War years of the mid-1960s to experience higher death rates in early adulthood than the generation that preceded it.

    White people are quick to cite personal hardships instead of acknowledging that they are privileged because of their skin color, according to a new study. Stanford University's L. Taylor Phillips and Brian S. Lowery, writing in November's Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, split test subjects into two groups - with one given more evidence of white privilege in American culture.

    Normally they hide their agenda under a layer of nauseating rhetoric about diversity, multiculturalism, etc. But sometimes they are less discreet. A few sample white genocide quotes: “The goal of abolishing the White race is on its face so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed White supremacists.” — Noel Ignatiev “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him” — Jose Angel Gutierrez, Chicano activist and university professor. “If...

    (AUDIO-AT-LINK) AMY GOODMAN: After his talk, Professor Chomsky read and answered questions from the audience. This is one of those questions. NOAM CHOMSKY: "What do you think about the antics of Donald Trump, in tangent to your earlier idea about American exceptionalism?" Well, actually, I think we should recognize that the other candidates are not that different. I mean, if you take a look at—just take a look at their views. You know, they tell you their views, and they’re astonishing. So just to keep to Iran, a couple of weeks ago, the two front-runners—they’re not the front-runners any longer—were...

    The Black Lives Matter movement at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) is officially being challenged by a new rival campus group, the UCSB White Student Union (WSU). In response to a series of “black-out” demonstrations last week at UCSB and college campuses nationwide calling for “solidarity with Mizzou” black students, the UCSB WSU decided to form its own antithetical “White Student Walk Out” calling for “solidarity” with white students. “Join us as we walk out of our classes at 12:30 PM to show solidarity for our brothers and sisters of European descent,” the Walk Out event description reads....

    First there was that incident at the Trump rally in Alabama. You know, the one where a protester with, shall we say, some ideas that are not terribly compatible with those of Trump or many of his supporters, showed up. He wound up on the ground, taking a beating and throwing some punches of his own before security booted him from the gathering. And then this week, much of the country learned of news that what has seriously been described as masked men shot five people protesting what they believe to be a questionable police shooting near a Minneapolis police...

    Looking back at the unrest that followed Freddie Gray's death, Baltimore voters see events differently than do voters statewide, a new poll shows.City voters are less likely to sympathize with police, and they are more likely to see joblessness and racism as a cause of April's unrest, according to a poll of likely voters conducted for The Baltimore Sun and the University of Baltimore.Those living outside the city are more likely to blame "a lack of personal responsibility among residents" for the city's ills.The divided opinions were most pronounced when respondents were asked for their opinions of how Baltimore State's...
  • EXCLUSIVE: The Media Is Wrong, White Student Unions Are not ‘Hoaxes’ Created by Racists

    The chaos that erupted across college campuses earlier this month escalated racial tensions among students to levels not seen since the 1950s and 60s, as radical activists sought to enforce a new orthodoxy of ‘white privilege’ across universities. The inevitable consequence — a newly-racialized American campus — is beginning to emerge. In the space of a few days, Facebook pages for “White Student Unions” have sprung up on dozens of campuses across North America. The pages adopt the language of campus activists, promising a “safe space” for white students and condemning alleged anti-white racism on campus. Mainstream media outlets have...

    More than 30 “White Student Union” pages have recently sprung up over the last several days on Facebook, pages that affiliate themselves with various universities around the nation. The creation of an “Illini White Student Union” Facebook page that surfaced Nov. 18 in response to a “Black Student Solidarity Rally” at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign gained national attention, but apparently it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Over the last week, at least 33 other “White Student Union” pages have appeared on Facebook, according to research conducted Sunday by The College Fix. Notably, “White Student Union” Facebook pages...
  • Obama collecting personal data for a secret race database

    A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.” Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.

    Update: Campus spokeswoman Robin Kaler said the University will continue to work with Facebook to have the Illini White Student Union page removed from the site. “It is disturbing and cowardly that someone would create an anonymous and senseless social media page specifically designed to intimidate others, including and especially our students. When we became aware of the page, we immediately contacted Facebook and requested that it be removed," Kaler said in an email. "Facebook has been responsive to our requests, but the page continues to be reposted. We are continuing to work with Facebook to address this matter. We...

    “They are generally white males, who have shot up people in movie theaters and schools. Those are terrorist attacks, they’re just different kinds of terrorists.” (AUDIO-AT-LINK)Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown says most terrorist attacks in the country since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks have been committed by “generally white males.” “I think most of us recognize, we’re concerned but we also know that we trust the FBI and our security forces to do this right,” the senator from Ohio said on WAKR radio on Thursday morning. “Since the beginning of the Bush administration when we were attacked, September 11th, we’ve not...
