Dear Terrified White Dudes: Your Strategy Needs an Update

I know it's hard to climb out of that barge on the ol' Egyptian river, but seriously, denial ain't gonna help. Start with this: The demographic Point of No Return was passed many, many years ago.

No matter how hard you try to keep any NEW brown people from entering the country, at some point within the next couple of generations, there will be more brown people than white people here.

One more important thing to note: Trying to hang onto all the power, all the wealth, and all the control when you're a diminishing minority in the greater population hasn't worked out awfully well over the last few centuries. Starting with France in the 18th Century, and most recently in South Africa, one way or another the majority will tip the balance back, and you'll have to cope.

If you're lucky, the model will be much more like South Africa and much less like 18th-Century France.

So here's a suggestion for a new strategy:

When you're about to become a minority, maybe... just maybe... ensuring that the rights of minorities are vigorously protected in law and economic practice would be a hella smart strategy!

Think about it, white dudes.

Instead of trying to deny minorities the right to vote, you might want to ensure strong protections for everyone's access to the ballot, because one day, it might be YOUR neighborhoods that get left off the "where we put polling places" map.

Instead of trying to restrict access to the best educational opportunities, you might want to guarantee that the admissions process can't be gamed by privilege.

Instead of making it easy for economic predators to practice usury, extortion, and confiscation in minority communities, you might want to codify economic justice for all, now while you still can.

Instead of allowing industrial polluters a free pass to make places where minorities live as toxic and unlivable as possible, you might want to give the notion of environmental justice a little support.

You want to ensure a better future for your children and grandchildren when they are a minority in America? Then make America a place where minorities have the fullest possible equity.

I can think of no better, more effective, more powerful strategy to secure the existence of white people and a future for white children, than by securing the existence of ALL minorities and the future of ALL children.

Just sayin'...

futilely,
Bright

7. Our species is doomed

Our 'intelligence," that we believe is the ultimate evolutionary adaptation, is what spells our doom.

There is no such thing as "race." We are one species.

The idea that one race is against another is pure stupidity.

15. I totally agree with everything you say. There's just one issue, though.

The primarily aging and rapidly rising white minority just believe they'll all be dead by the time Americans of Northern European heritage become a minority group. And much like climate change, they won't be around to experience the issues to be faced. They've spawned a group of younger people, many if not most of them, who think like they do, but they don't give a shit about any possible consequences they'll face in the future because they've been raised to believe in the Rapture. How these moronic dipshits actually believe that the Jesus Christ they say they love so much would actually save their miserable, religiously hypocritical asses is a thing of mystery to me.

18. They need to look no further than their Bible and a quote from Lincoln for how to proceed.

From Matthew 25: Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.


Abraham Lincoln: "Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it."

20. Fear is the base of their hatred.

Fear that what they have done to others will be done to them.

24. As I age and watch another generation, my great grandchildren be born into my family,

I am witnessing the infusion of other races into my family tree. Black, Asian, Hispanic, Native Hawaiian, Creole, etc.


It is the most beautiful thing I have ever witnessed and gives me more reason to live than at any other time in my life.

30. Makes me wonder about their plan for brown folks who are born here

like for me, they just straight up deny that I was born here or a US citizen. My documents don't mean anything to them. Much like how a US president's documents were fake. They just knew Obama was born in Kenya.

Some DUers still think I'm an H1b. Some Canadians/Australians/Europeans are assumed to be American for all the white reasons.

They want race-based citizenship. Think about the words "white nationalist". They want a white nation, by any means necessary.
