ActiveAndFit saidThis could be a good thing. I hope the new generation seeks out higher education though .. I think that is going to be necessary to compete with the rest of the world.
Also with the growing minority populations, things could become a little more balanced. Today's conservatism will die a slow death .. the sooner the better as far as I am concerned.
If you're referring to social conservatism, I think immigrants actually work for social conservatism - especially first generation immigrants. Visible minorities who are first generation tend to come from countries that are far more conservative. Blacks also tend to vote with social conservative values (e.g. Prop . The subsequent generations however...
The notion that visible minorities are more socially conservative (by large numbers) is a myth I believe. In regard to prop 8, if only minorities under 30 had voted, it would have been defeated soundly at nearly 60% or more.
But "socially conservative" is not only restricted to gay issues.
In regard to first generation .. I have a feeling that they are way out-numbered by second generation and above.
non-minority conservatives and the republican party (which is VERY non-diverse) tends to set themselves against minorities.
