    America’s white millennial problem: Why the next great generation might not be a liberal one

    "Additionally, while white millenials say they want to live in a racially equitable society, they are no more likely than their parents to support policies to make that society come about. ”At the same time, whites primed with the reality of growing diversity become are less likely to say they support diversity and more likely to support the Republican party.”

    Yup, I can see this happening. We've had a 1000 generations to fix this this, and in theory it should work, but the reality is that we're segregated due to white flight.

    Now, I think white flight is turning into white panic.

    Watch out Canada.

    Of course, the solution would be to support civil rights and equality for all, but it's been hard to get people on here to support civil rights, and I think it's even more of a battle outside of this site.icon_confused.gif

    Perhaps if you looked behind the very real reasons for "white flight" you'd understand that it wasn't based on prejudice, but bitter experience, and stop parroting your cliches. Here's a hint on where to start looking: Ferguson, what's left of it.

    I was at a party not too long ago when a gay couple were talking about how they got some govt. backed low interest loan for people willing to buy property in blighted areas. The place they bought was in a predominantly black neighborhood. The reception they received from the neighborhood was let's say less than welcoming. White people moving into their neighborhood! How dare they! Of course the liberal bleeding hearts of the group at the party sided with the neighbors and bemoaned the "gentrification" of the otherwise blighted shit hole of a neighborhood. LOL They'd rather live in a blighted, filthy, crime ridden neighborhood riddled with abandoned houses than have someone with the means to improve the neighborhood move in! But of course they have no problem with moving into predominantly middle class neighborhoods and bringing crime, drugs, declining property values, etc. I've witnessed it all too often in the city where I live. Neighborhoods that were thriving safe places to raise a family in the 40s, 50s, and 60s are now crime ridden war zones. Whites AND others fled for VERY good reasons.

    But then again, I'm a racist, what do I know.

    P.S. The couple who got the loan was told that the agency had difficulty finding people to qualify for the program.

    This implies that things will be viewed by white standards in the future. Once white power has eroded sufficiently, Europe and the US will function just like any other third world country. There won't be a dominate white culture to promote social and technical progress and civilization. The evidence that this is happening now is overwhelming. Look to Africa as what the future will
    look like.

    See my above post about panic.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Also, study world history. It's pretty clear that the whole future of world is not on any one culture's back. What's more likely is that there will be a fusion of cultures and progress...

    If I could, I would stick my finger into the all the world's cultures and swirl them all together...

    It wasn't based on prejudice?

    Not sure whether to laugh or cry at such a ridiculously false statement.

    Absolutely. He's been extremely divisive. The whole Ferguson incident was used to anger African-Americans to increase their voter turn-out. Obama has allied himself with Sharpton, a race hustler who profits on stoking racial division.

    Came in expecting to hear about authoritarianism, libertarianism, and Rand-worship.

    Got race-bait, again.

    Disappointed.

    How could it not be about race when race is in the title?

    Well, while white millennials are white, the problem with them for Democrats as I see it is not racial. It is their tendency to respond positively to father-figures, or "alphas", and to take Ayn Rand much too seriously, in particular the notion that "selfishness is a virtue".

    Progress is neither permanent nor inevitable. We failed to instil that lesson in our civic education.

    you might be surprised that alot of that damage in Ferguson was done by white protesters in the crowd.

    hottjoe there is white panic and it is definitely stronger in some areas rather than others. I think Canada need not fear a crisis at its borders with thousands of US children peering north thru the chain link.


    No. White panic is manifesting itself in a far more dubious form of circling the wagons, segregating themselves and not least arming themselves.

    Plus their shenanigans in statehouses to thwart the minority vote.

    I am so glad that it is going to be like that.

    For a bunch of thugs and welfare leeches on RJ, it must be disappointing.

    You are so full of shit. There is no "white panic". Now you have really gone off your rocker. You just cannot stand the true fact that many millennials are not as ultra liberal as you had hoped them to be. It just burns your bubbly little ass that many millennials both white and minority, gay, bi, and straight are not going to be blind sycophants of the democratic party.

    Not necessarily. The GOP is going to be infiltrated with more progressive minded, younger people who share its original philosophies but despise the current GOP leadership of corporate plutocrats and NARROW MINDED BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLS.
