Confirming the War on Whites

In the case you were wondering if there's actually war on Whites, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank is here to reassure there is, in fact, one waging right now. Except you should celebrate it as it will mean America will grow as the world's penultimate consumerist superpower:

It was the battle cry of the white man, particularly the Southern white man, who is feeling besieged. I don’t share the fear, but I understand it. The United States is experiencing a rapid decoupling of race and nationality: Whiteness has less and less to do with being American.

The Census Bureau forecasts that non-Hispanic whites, now slightly more than 60 percent of the population, will fall below 50 percent in 2043. Within 30 years, there will cease to be a racial majority in the United States. In a narrow political sense, this is bad news for the GOP, which is dominated by older white men such as Brooks. But for the country, the disassociation of whiteness and American-ness is to be celebrated. Indeed, it is the key to our survival.

This is not merely about a fresh labor supply but about the fresh blood needed to cure what ails us. To benefit from such a transfusion, we not only need to welcome more immigrants but also to adopt pieces of their culture lacking in our own — just as we have done with other (mostly European) cultures for centuries.

And by cultural transfusion, Milbank means all those clever Chinese coming to the states and giving us their unique gifts:

Liu argues that the United States needn’t fear China’s rise, because the Chinese have already given us the tools to beat them economically: their sons and daughters.

“America has an enduring competitive advantage over China: America makes Chinese Americans; China does not make American Chinese,” Liu says. “China does not want to or know how to take people from around the world, welcome them, and empower them to change the very fabric of their nation’s culture.”

The son of Chinese immigrants, Liu observes that American culture now has an excess of individualism, short-term thinking and prioritizing of rights over duties. He calls for “a corrective dose” of Chinese values: mutual responsibility, long-term thinking, humility, moral character and contribution to society.

Note the focus on the Chinese rather than the swarm of mestizos streaming across the border at the moment. The WaPo columnist likely focused on them to appeal to his fellow urban elves on why immigration is better. It's harder to make a well-argued case for how low IQ and low-skilled Hispanics are making America competitive in the world, so let's talk about the high IQ Asians instead.

Either way, Milbank's column proves that our managerial elite is actually waging a war on Whites--but it's for our own good. But at least urban elves are becoming more honest in their desire to eliminate White identity.
