Sarah: I know that sometimes happens, the white-Asian couples you refer to. But, how common is that? I admit, I don’t live in an area with a lot of Asian people. Most inter-racial relationships I see are white women with black men, which seems common all over US. I have seen mixed Asian-white children, and they mostly look Asian . . just as black-white children tend to look some shade of black-brown. It seems that white biology makes for a good base for other racial traits to come through.

Inception: I had read about the “conversion” of this young man. I think it merely represents the turning away from elders’ ways and beliefs that young Americans have done in recent generations. “Baby Boomers” disagreed with their parents’ faith in government and the military. Then, later generations say that they are less likely than their parents to hold religious beliefs or to live close to other relatives. The story noted that Derek’s parents raised him in an ethnically mixed neighborhood, and they paid his tuition to attend a liberal arts college . . so, the parents don’t seem to be close-minded or averse to differences. I wonder if Derek’s opinions will change as he reaches middle age and older. As a young person, I disagreed with my parents on many things, but once I had my own children and worked and owned a home, etc. my opinions changed to become much like those my parents espoused. I wonder too if seeing the white population become first a minority, and then likely to continue to shrink ever smaller, if Derek might again become concerned about the survival of his white race. I believe he will come to regret the changes that these decades ahead will bring and he will miss “the good ole days”. (Of course, by then, it will be too late and I doubt anyone will take comfort in saying “I told you so.” We usually learn too late).
Kurumbi: I can only speak for myself, but if I feel lost, it is because the greater America I grew up in has withered away. We used to sleep secure with our doors unlocked, we used to leave the keys in the ignitions of our cars parked on the street and KNOW that no one would steal them. We used to walk the streets of our community late at night, never fearing that others might attack or rob us. Couples mostly married and mostly stayed that way. Families were intact, with children taught to strive hard at school and with homework, to respect their elders and to pitch in with household chores. We attended church regularly. As kids, we walked and biked all over town and were never concerned that we might be abducted. Our parents and extended family and teachers and scout leaders did not molest us, and we never even thought they might. Everyone sought to work hard to support themselves and their families. I miss those days. I feel lost in this America today where things are the opposite of the way they used to be. And, I have spoken to older Black Americans who hold similar memories and miss the days of their youth, even given the overt segregation and discrimination they faced. Unfortunately, we Americans threw everything if the past away instead of simply correcting a few injustices. We lost more than we gained.
Macro: There is the dictionary of racism, and then there are culturally relevent definitions. In modern day US, racism is only deemed valid if practiced by whites. Bias against whites that is exhibited by non-whites is deemed “justice” or “good, for a change!”. And, when you talk about whites as a ruling class, please do not think that elite whites carry anything about the average white person — all they really care about is their own personal wealth and power. They will, and have, throw the rest of us under the bus in an instant.

White Genocide Posters World Wide
Aesop: A very good reason why people clandestinely post such messages is the serious blow-back that occurs when one openly declares those messages. If the poster owns a business, there can be orchestrated boycotts to try to shut that business down. If the poster is someone’s employee, that employer can be barraged with complaints threatening boycotts until the “offending” employee is fired. If the poster has a sponsor, the sponsor can be barraged with threats until they cease that sponsorship. If the poster is invulnerable to most intimidations, they can still be subject to public demonstrations outside their property, jeers directed at them and their family on the streets, barrages of harassing phone calls and e-mails and Facebook texts seeking to make one’s life hell. One’s kids can be jeered and beaten up over thing THEY never said. Certainly you know all this — we have seen in news reports that people have lost jobs or otherwise been financially ruined for daring to speak openly. Only a fool would volunteer for such mistreatment. Generally, the only safe place to make such public declarations is amongst like-minded individuals . . and then hope no one records it. Go ahead and challenge publicly — you maybe be immune or don’t care, but the rest of us have families to provide for and take care of. Americans like to brag about “freedom of speech”, but that is an illusion. Fear of economic ruin and social ostracizing can shut down free speech just as surely as governmental action.

Doc, I think everyone has a different idea of what is white and non-white. I note that some people in Mexico show strong resemblence to the Spanish explorers who entered that land, and thus look more white. There are also those who resemble the brown peoples/Indians who occupied the land prior to the arrival of the Spanish, and those persons do not look like Caucasians-of-European-descent (which is what I mean when I say “white”). Otherwise, people can split hairs when arguing over who qualifies as white. I just know what I mean when, in US, someone tells me that they saw a white person vs. a black person, or Hispanic or Asian. Yes, I might accept more the idea of diversity and race-mixing, if there remained a land where white people and their cultures endured. But, it sure looks like the press is on to inter-breed whites out of existence in North America and Europe. Can we count on Russia and Australia to keep whites around in future generations, or will they eventually die out too?

Steve, I too have noted (who hasn’t? — it’s everywhere) the frequency of black male-white female couples, and my thoughts are this: Young white Americans (I don’t know about Europeans) have been bombarded with messages that whites are responsible for most evils in the world. So, I think this is part of the reason why the birth rate for white Americans has been so low — they don’t want to bring more evil whites into the world. But, if white women get with black men and have mixed babies . . Then the babies would not be white and thus not so bad. And, the white women may hope to gain favor as non-whites become the majority in US and whites increasing become pariahs. As for the black men, having white women on their arms as trophy wives, and having babies that will have lighter skin that is desirable (so long as not white), are the motivations.
White Genocide: racist conspiracy theory or inconvenient truth?
Bonjour: Speaking for myself, I have nothing against non-white people and, like you, I feel they add in a positive way to society. What I object to is the planned and encouraged decline in white birth rates and the massive entry of illegal immigrants into white-majority countries, with the aim being to reduce the percentage of whites within the society. You don’t see the decline of whites near you, but the numbers clearly show it is occurring. If you support the dwindling of white populations and their replacement by non-white populations, I guess you would be happy. Others of us are alarmed at the prospect that whites will continue to decline in numbers and could face extinction.
Hillary’s Vice President says Whites MUST become a minority
I believe Mr. Kaine meant that we should try to put ourselves through in the place of non-whites, that we might better understand their hopes and concerns. I don’t think it is a bad idea for anyone to try to put themself in another’s position. We are, after all, human.
