Race, Diversity...... and the RACE
We all heard the news the other day that the birthrate has tipped in favor of non-whites. This, of course has the Right discombobulated. Now I'm SURE they'll be dead set against ALL birth control, reproductive choices and family planning services for those conservative-values voters. Those of OTHER mindsets (or ethnicities)...not so much. This should be interesting if not vitriolic at times.
This is from ABC News yesterday:
The data released this week revealed a tipping point in the country's demographic shift. For the first time in the country's history, more minority children were born than white children, setting the stage for an eventual non-white majority in America's population.
"I think that what we're seeing is that hate groups, particularly white supremacist groups, are talking a lot about the fact that whites will soon be a minority in this country, that their goal at all costs is to preserve the white race in civilization, which spurs them to recruit more, and have more incendiary rhetoric," Mayo said.
The main reason for all of this, of course is: "It is not a good thing. The immigrants do not share American values, so it is a good bet that they will not be voting Republican when they start voting in large numbers."............the Eagle Forum
Now in the South, custom and tradition are something to be revered.....right or wrong. NASCAR is a world unto it's self. (Hey, I've got MY favorite drivers, too.) They've already had conniption fits that they have to race in California and Las Vegas....
So when a young driver of African-American persuasion is making his way up the ranks:"Given Darrell Wallace Jr.'s advanced learning curve in stock car racing, it might seem like his NASCAR national series debut has been a long time coming."
Let the comments begin..........From the Nascar site today:
He has every right to race and nascar has every right to give money to the poor just wish they would stop making the tickets so hi to support him
What is wrong with having something that is not "diverse" ? White people are what made NASCAR big and now Brian France does this. I hear that attendance is down at the races, maybe because Obamas hog came to a race!
