Viewpoint: The Power of the Asian and Latino Vote

Asians and Latinos made key differences in battleground states, driven by a common desire for immigration reform.

Las Estellitas, a Mexican restaurant in Chicago, is turned into a polling station on Nov. 6, 2012

The Nov. 6 election signaled a demographic tipping point: a record number of Latino and Asian voters, the country’s fastest-growing voting blocs, formed a coalition with black and white Democratic voters to re-elect the country’s first African-American President. A new American majority — a multiethnic majority — has not only arrived but is in fact reordering the political landscape.

The election’s results also represent a turning point — a defining moment — for immigration, an issue that was barely discussed in the final months of the campaign yet surely played an outsize role in turning out voters, particularly Asians and Latinos.

In a close contest in which every vote counted, Asians and Latinos made the difference in key states. An influx of Asian voters in Virginia helped Obama carry that swing state. Exit polls show that in the battleground states of Nevada, Colorado and Florida, Latino voters clinched the win for the President. Though the economy and the budget deficit were key issues of concern for Latinos and Asians — as they are with all voting blocs — immigration was near the top of the list.

That’s because immigration is a personal issue. According to Latino Vote 2012, which analyzed turnout in states with sizable Hispanic electorates, a majority of Latino voters say they personally know someone who is undocumented. That’s not a surprise, given that millions of undocumented people live in what’s called a mixed-status family. At least 17 million people who are legally living in the U.S. have at least one undocumented immigrant in their family, as reported by the Pew Hispanic Center. Furthermore, about 4.5 million U.S.-citizen children and young adults have at least one undocumented parent.

So when Mitt Romney consistently called undocumented people “illegals” — a dehumanizing and pejorative term, considered a slur in immigrant communities — during the primary and general campaigns, he was referring to someone’s mother, someone’s brother, someone’s friend or classmate. And that someone may have voted.

(MORE: Vargas: Immigration Debate: The Problem with the Word Illegal)

I, for one, belong in a mixed-status family; I am the only undocumented person in my large, extended Filipino family. All day on Nov. 6, my grandmother (who raised me), in addition to my aunts, uncles and cousins, called or texted to say that they voted on my behalf. The calls and texts did not come just from my Filipino family. My network of educators, friends and classmates — the people who supported and protected me as an undocumented student and later as an undocumented worker — also reached out and said they too voted on my behalf.

And I and others like me, in turn, encouraged others to vote. Led by undocumented youth known as Dreamers — named after the Dream Act, the more than decade-old legislation that would grant a path to citizenship for children who were schooled and grew up in the U.S. — there was a concerted effort to urge voters to turn out, especially in Nevada, Florida and Colorado. This was part of the winning strategy in Maryland, which became the first state to pass a version of the Dream Act at the ballot box. Across the country, in the months leading up to the election, Dreamers made phone calls and knocked on doors to make sure American citizens did not take their privilege of voting for granted.

(MORE: Not Legal, Not Leaving)

Together, undocumented people like me and our relatives, friends and allies wait for broader immigration reform, not just for Dreamers but also for undocumented workers of all ages and backgrounds who contribute to our economic security and prosperity. Now is the time to come up with a fair, bipartisan and sensible solution to our immigration problem. When Obama spoke of “reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges” facing the country in his victory speech, “fixing our immigration system” was among four issues he listed. For the sake of our country, reform must happen, sooner rather than later. I hope President Obama will make sure of it.

Time for all this mass immigration to end (I make an exception for certain highly skilled professionals). The country is becoming overpopulated with tremendous strains on our living space and environment. Large swaths of California's farming Central Valley are becoming paved over with housing developments and shopping malls. The Soutbwest will probably run out of enough water this century. Overfishing and logging is rampant. Mass immigration is driving a lot of this. Save America for Americans. To be for immigration and for the environment is a contradictory hypocrisy of many liberals.

One would think reading this that Latino voters have more power than traditional white voters. Driving across this country I still see quite a few of the latter though I admit they are shrinking.

Look people, mexicans, filipinos and so on,  have their own country where they are the majority. The policies we see today are intentionally designed by an anti-white Democratic party, which has decided it hates white america and wants to destroy it,  and immigration invasion groups to destroy white America and effectively destroy the United States itself, what it has been for all of its history, forever destroying its traditional qualities and character as a white majority country. This is nothing less than a genocidal war to destroy white america. What is going on here is an attack on every white majority country in north america, and a genocidal war on the white race itself.  This war is one way, while filipinos or mexicans are in no danger of becoming minorities in their own country, Whites are being threatened to be turned into a minority by these invaders in the country white people founded and build, fought and died for. Millions of white americans did not fight and die for the united states so that we would allow the country to be invaded by foreign rapacious invaders and for white america to be destroyed.

It has long been the goal of Mexican and other invasion groups, such as Reconquista and Aztlan Rising, who see the USA as rightfully theirs and a prize to be stolen from white americans, to carry out an immigration invasion of the USA to effectively turn the USA into Mexico. No one in the immigration invasion movement can explain why Mexico is allowed to enforce immigration laws on its own southern border. In fact, the Mexican government each year deports large numbers of persons who cross the southern border of Mexico and has zero tolerance policies for illegal immigration into Mexico. So why. while Mexico is strictly enforcing its own immigration laws, is the United States told we need to have an open border with endless immigration invasions into the US of Mexicans who quite frankly hate white americans and want to steal the country from them?

The fact that mexicans come to the US and have tons of children exposes the true intentions of these people, they are primarily interested in out populating whites and taking over the country by having massive numbers of children. The fact that hispanics and other hispanics, who are allegedly legal voters, would vote for politicians who promise to allow US immigration laws to be wontonly violated in an immigration invasion that is not in the best interests of the United States and that is destroying the countries traditional ethnic demographics and character, shows that hispanics and these other immigrants loyalties and solidarity is not with the United States but it lies with Mexico. If the hispanics were not entirely loyal to Mexico they would not vote for politicians that want an immigration flood into the United States adn want to reward people for breaking US laws.

While mexico would never allow a mass immigration invasion that would make mexicans a minority in their own country, Americans are being told we have to allow our country to be invaded by mexicans, who then produce huge numbers iof children in the US, steal our jobs, are destroying our middle class and defraud our welfare.  The immigration invasions are one way, clearly destroying white America and the white majority in the US while there is no danger of mexicans losing their majority in Mexico, or Filipinos losing their majority in the Phillipines,  due to the double standard which clearly is designed to allow the US to be invaded by Mexicans and other invasion groups.

Connected to these immigration invasion groups are extremist, anti american, anti white, self hating communist and socialist radicals in the USA which have since the 1960s taken over the Democratic party. These radicals are hell bent on destroying white america and feel that the United States was a flawed creation and that White america should be destroyed and replaced with a flood of third world races. These sorts of people see the United States as a flawed creation and hate the existance of this country. They have decided that they want to destroy the United States, and especially destroy white america. They have decided that they hate white americans and have been carrying out what can only be described as genocidal policies to destroy white america by causing whites to become a small shrinking, minority in the US through immigration invasions.

No one can honestly say that the United States is a country of immigrants from everywhere and anywhere. The white majority founded thjis country and was the majority throughout its entire history and this is inseparable from the countries identity, character and nature. It was recognized that the country was best run by a white majority , that whites had the skills, intelligence and capabilities to make the country into a success. They were right, as a white majority country, the US has been the most successful country in the world primarily due to the intelligence and abilities of its white majority. IQ testing has shown that whites have an average IQ that is 20% higher than that of Africans, Mexicans and other groups. The average white IQ is 105 compared to the average Mexican and African IQs which are at 85. The white majority is the main cause of the historical success of the country. The fact is traditional minorities such as Blacks have a much higher standard of living and quality of life living in a white majority US, than if they had been living in virtually any other black majority country. Our vision is a white majority country that takes on an economic stewardship role to economically and technologically develop the country, improving living conditions for all including the ethnic minorities in the country who should equally benefit from the success and intellectual capabilities of the white majority.

Our vision of Americas future should be in keeping with the traditional demographic structure of the country and maintaining the strong white majority in the country. This included prohibiting immigration of Mexicans and other groups into the US which causes a disruption of the traditional character and demographic structure of the country.  It includes full rights and equal opportunity for the traditional minority groups in the country, and whites as the majority taking an altruistic economic stewardship role to improve the living conditions of the minorities in the country.

Blacks, native americans and other traditional minorities have fully equal rigths in a white majority country and much better quality of life than would be had in  a black majority or a mexican majority country. We have gone to lengths to make sure that all of these minorities enjoy equal rights. Unfortunately, for many people, thats not enough. The war to destroy white america goes too far and should be stopped.

Unless we stop this war on white america and this violent immigration invasion to destroy white america, the US as it has been for 300 years and that we all know will no longer exist in 30 years.

I am Asian and I voted democrat but NOT because of immigration issues (though I support President Obama's immigration stand) but because of what, in my opinion, the Republicans represent - Corporate Greed. I am a Christian and I go to a very conservative church.  I do not support abortion (I support contraception) and I do not support gay marriage (I support civil union) -- 2 key issues Republican sympathizers use as no-brainer decision points in choosing Republican over ANY Democratic opponent, period. I voted YES to the amendment on eminent domain - which democrats recommend we vote NO on. My point is -- please STOP STEREOTYPING. President Obama won a re-election to a second term because of the confluence of several issues and factors -- and it cannot be boiled down to Asians and Hispanics voting Dem because of Immigration - though they probably helped. On the other side of the coin, in my opinion, something can be said of voting Republican based on race and religion and military sympathies. Though of course, I wouldn't want to be accused of the same "crime".

I am not completely sure that the Republican party understand what happened Tuesday. And the magnitude of their responsibility in this fiasco.Wednesday, 320 million American woke up in another Social Democracy. It was not a battle that was lost, but the war.There is nothing wrong with Social Democracy, as long as it is implemented in countries educated, culturally homogenous and small enough to allow a tight control on social programs. It might even have been workable in the US, if implemented at the state level.To understand why I think I have a lead on you to appreciate the magnitude of what happened after these last elections, You need to know that I have been through this revolution once in my life.Until I was 35, I lived in France. France was, until 1981 a center right country. A country of hard working people, where social program fraud was minimal, and where the entitlement mentality was foreign to a law abiding, optimistic population. With the first socialist president, who ruled for 14 years, France took the irremediable path to social democracy. Nobody at this time, me included, understood how irremediable this move was, even where the battle against capitalism was held, and when it was won.Since Lenin, socialist have an overwhelming advantage on bourgeois societies. Because when you have been brought in the set of values that define a democratic society, it is hard to believe that a country can so rapidly be changed in its quintessential paradigm. We want to believe that virtue is resilient, and that political alternance can restore or undo what the previous administration did wrong. Moreover, in the USA, we strongly believe in the constitution and the balance of power, as an additional guarantee against any attempt to overthrow the fundamental rules.Socialists know that there is no country that cannot be taken by storm, when the situation is ripe, and the right strategy is implemented.I did believe that there was nothing irremediable when president Obama was elected for a first term. I don’t believe that anymore, because more than his reelection, the real outcome of Tuesday night, is that America has been forever installed into an entrenched class war.The federal government, particularly through the health care mandate, as it is in Europe, will use more and more the business owners as tax and social charges collectors. This already is the case, but what will change is that, because the social programs will require always more money to be run, we will become constantly suspected of evading our obligations, and pointed out as the responsible for their financial demise. The social programs, being exclusively dispensed through the government, will be always running huge deficit, because they will be inevitably looted by their beneficiaries.Why is it that social democracies are gangrened by mass corruption? It is because one of the most important dynamic in Social Democracy is that, the very idea that the government “protects” the middle class implies and conveys that until the social democrat governmental protection was “at last” in place, the businesses owners, “the rich” had been stealing the money from them. This explain the “revenge” vote Obama was talking about.We saw that in France with the 35 worked hours per week implementation.In one night, and I know that you will not believe me, but I repeat, in one night, I have seen a radical transformation into my 65 employees rapport to work. People who would not leave their desk until dusk, or show up Saturday morning, to finish a task, knowing they were not paid for it, became greedy of their time. They would stop working, gather their coat ½ an hour early, just to make sure they would not give us one extra minute of their time.

Plan:  Immediate legality through registration, documenting  length of stay here. Application for legitimate SSN's for those now using a bogus one. Processing for citizenship over the next fifteen years: first-here, first served. Citizenship only for those who (1) learn English, (2) have no criminal record (other than offenses springing from illegal status itself), (3)  have a job, go to school or be legitimately dependent on someone with a job (like legal immigrants), (4) wait five years before being sworn as citizens (to provide equivalence for the delay legal immigrants must experience) and (5) payment of a substantial fine - pegged at an amount that pays for all or nearly all of the government's actual expense in processing all this paperwork. 

This is not amnesty.  This is fairness.  This could be bi-partisan.

This makes everyone legal - getting workers out of the black market economy and into tax-paying status. This removes the necessity of these workers having to take low wages because of their illegal status.  That removes much of their negative impact on over-all wage rates.

This takes care of legality as an issue.  Those who would oppose it are left to admit that they just do not want "these people" here.

It is a pity that the GOP cannot see that the majority of the United States was turned off by their mean spirited and rude behavior toward others that they perceive to be different.  That is what turned off the country.  I want congratulate my Asian brothers and sisters for supporting Obama because they see him working to help everyone, and they can see his heart.  That is the key to our future as a society. Everyone would be better off if they stopped passing judgement based on appearance, and just took the time to know who a person is. White immigrants can "pass" as soon as they lose their accent.  People of color are judged "at a glance" no matter how many generations have been born here, and we deserve acceptance. We came and we stay because we love this country and want to make it even better.  If we  believe God is in control, then this is the leader He wants for our collective good.  President Obama is someone we can all be proud of and I know he will continue to lead us with great distinction, honor and wisdom.  Viva Obama and god bless the United States!

@zaglossus Do you think low skilled immigrant workers pay to waste tremendous amounts of water and other resources? Do you think they are the ones who move into those new housing developments or go to those shopping malls? Of course not. Now, who pays for social security? Who is funding medicare? Who is building those houses and malls? The immigrant workers. As America's white population gets older and retires, we need immigrants to come in and help keep afloat our (worthy) social programs.

@AmberMiller Firstly, I know I will never be able to change your mind. By I still may try. I also know that, maybe someone else will read your post, fell like agreeing with it, only to find truth in my statements. 

It seems like you are under the impression that other ethic groups have not fought for America as it is. To begin with, the vast majority of white America come from immigrants who displaced, murdered, and tortured the existing indigenous populations. You said that there is a country for all those immigrants now to stay in? Well, there certainly was a place for the English, Germans, French, Italians, Irish etc. Those people came for the exact same reason that people come now. Economic opportunities. A chance to start over and build something for oneself. The chance to escape poverty. They come here for freedom, freedom to practice whatever one believes, freedom to say what you want with no worry about who may disagree, and freedom to actually have say in their government. What is the difference between immigrants now and back then? 

You brought up the idea that only whites fought for this country. That is simply not true. There were blacks who fought for freedom (and even fought knowing they wouldn't get it) back in the Revolution. May I remind you, those were the only people who came here against their will. It was, literally, forced immigration BY WHITES. And yet, these people fought for America. And as did Spain (read, Mexico). In world war II, what did we do to the Japanese? We destroyed their homes and their businesses and dragged them to internment camps. And yet, there were several whole Japanese divisions in the war. When immigrants, many of whom are discriminated against, chose to fight for us, can you say that they are not Americans? Can you say they don't deserve to be here? 

Mexico has it's own problems with illegal immigration. They complain about the Central Americans coming into their country through their southern border and taking jobs that belong to Mexicans. Sound familiar? 

I flatly reject your idea that America should be "white". I embrace a race-blind America. An America based on the values of freedom of religion and speech, freedom to choose how you live your life, freedom to live where you want, freedom to have whatever job you want, freedom to reach as high as you want as long as you work hard to get there. My idea of America is not white and Christian. It is of a magical place where everyone has a fair shot. Anyone can go anywhere. Anyone can dream big and get there.

Look, Mexicans have far more children because they are trying to outpopulate whites adn they want to destroy whtie america and steal the country. Look, we need to stop the Mexican invasion ASAP. 

Abortion is wrong as it is killing of a human being that simply is still in the womb. The idea that babies materialize out of nothing when passing the birth canal is absurd, that human life begins at conception  is a scientific fact. I would like to mention that the fertility rate of white americans due to Democrats baby killing ideas is far too low, leading to a catastrophic shrinkage of the white population. At the same time the democrats want to bring in tons of illegal immigrants who have far more children above the replacement level and in fact whose population numbers are exploding. The democratic party has been taken over extreme communist radicals that hate white america and love the fact that 36% of white babies are killed. Their goal is to destroy white america with baby killing and a flood of rapidly reproducing third world races , and use the too low white birth rate that THEY caused as an excuse to allow the country to be invaded.

If we were smart we would keep out the mexicans, stop the immigration invasions of all kinds, and ban abortion to keep the reproductive levels of americans who have been here for generations at sufficient levels to to regenerate the population . As I have mentioned elsewhere the agenda of the Democrats is to destroy white america in what can only be called a genocidal destruction of the white majority of this country and then flood the country with third world illegals as the Democratic party is filled with communist antiamerican radicals that hate white america and think that the founding of the United States was a mistake. 

We need to stop the genocidal attack on the USAs traditional demographics and instead implement policies that will maintain the traditional demographic structure, including continuation as a white majority country and continueing to assure equal economic opportunity and co-existence to the countries traditional minorities including blacks and native american groups. The white majority has already given full equal opportunity, whites should remain a majority and continue at the same time to improve the welfare of the countries traditional minorities. We should not allow white america to be destroyed and whites turned into a shrinking minority with immigration invasions.

However these are all European groups. Most of the immigration into the throughout its history has been from Europe and the country has been a European majority country throughout its history.  US immigration policies favored immigration exclusively from European countries and there was broad consensus throughout its existance that the US should be a European majority country. As well these Euriopeans were well known to be intelligent, inventors, scientists and so on. It was well known that Europeans are far more intelligent than other groups and IQ testing has shown that Europeans have an average IQ 20% higher than Mexicans and other third world groups, the average European IQ is 105 while the average black and mexican IQ is 85. 

No one can honestly claim that the US is a country of immigrants from everywhere and anywhere. It is a country from mostly one place: Europe with minor levels of immigration from other places. There is no precedent whatsoever for allowing Europeans to become a minority in the US that Europeans built and fought for, and died for and founded. In fact, allowing Europeans to become a minority in the US destroys the traditional character, culture and nature of the country and goes against everything that the US has been for 300 years. The white majority in the US is inseperable part of the country and its identity and you cannot wage a war on our white majority without waging a war on the true, original concept of america itself as a European majority country. @mantisdragon91 @zaglossus

So, you think immigrants are purposefully having kids to take the country? Why? What good does it do them? If whites are so scared of being outnumbered, why don't you flat out have more kids? Fact of the matter is, without immigration, we can't support social programs like social security and medicare. Do you know the biggest benefactors of social security and medicare? Elderly whites. We need the youthful population to support our elderly. If immigrants are the only ones who are having kids, than good, let them in. Even illegals pay taxes.

As Adnan pointed out, FYI, Middle Easterns, Hispanics and even some Asian Indians are classifed Caucasian - i.e. WHITE. I forgive your bigotry because you are so ignorant.

@AmberMiller 'In fact, allowing Europeans to become a minority in the US destroys the traditional character, culture and nature of the country and goes against everything that the US has been for 300 years.'

And what of the first nation peoples who were happily living on that continent for way longer than 300 years before the white settlers came and slaughtered millions of them? The way you mention a 'genocidal war against whites' in one of your other comments is disgusting, considering that the land you live on is more likely than not the site of native graves.Furthermore, many Mexicans are of Spanish heritage. European heritage.

@AmberMiller @adnan7631 

The US used to be a traditionally English Country. Then it became a traditionally Western European Country with slaves. Then it became a traditionally Western and Middle European country, with black people. Then it became a Traditionally European with Chinese and Middle Eastern people's country. The America that you are thinking of came next, a white America, except with black people and Asians. The definition of "traditional America" has and always will be, in a state of flux, at least in the form of ethnicity. There is no agenda to clear out the Whites (and what would be the motive, anyway?). And frankly, you have your idea of "traditional American" wrong. It should never be about ethnicity or religion. Rather, it should be about values. Americans are hard working, honest, generally courageous, inventive, and individualistic. If incoming immigrants want to be a part of that, why can't they? As I said earlier, this country is significantly larger than China but much less populated. Obviously, there is room. What is the difference between the immigrant who sailed over the sea for economic opportunity and the immigrant who came over through a check point for the same reason (illegally is a different argument)? If you say race, that is racism. 

AmberMiller

Andan you are wrong. The US has traditionally been a country that has been a a white majority country and has intentionally preferred that. It does have traditional minorities as well which have equal rights however, we oppose any further immigration. The US is now a mature country adn does not need immigration. I am all for preserving the worlds races, all of them, and would never want to do anything that would place any of them in jeopardy. Immigration does place races in jeopardy and threatens their existance. Whatever the US has done other countries can do too. Countries such as Nigeria need to work on improving their country. I am for giving them foreign aid to help them develop their economy where we can. However, I am not for immigration and immigration eventually will destroy white America. I am for improving conditions in every country of the world rather than immigration invasions which is just attacks of one race on another race by trying to crowd them out.  @adnan7631 @AmberMiller

@AmberMiller So, you are saying that Mexico is better than the US? I disagree. The US is unique because of it's social openness and it's willingness to allow anybody to have the chance to succeed.

I am not against any race however each should have their own countries and work on making their own  countries better rather than trying to invade the lands of others. Simple enough.  So, Mexicans have mexico, they need to fix mexicos problems and stop invading us. Simple. Stopping the Mexican invasion of the US is really the only thing that will cause Mexicans to realize they need to make their own countries better since invading the US is not possible adn will not be allowed. I am just opposed to immigration, it solves nothing and is bad. @AmberMiller 

adnan7631

@AmberMiller @adnan7631 

That simply is not consistent with history. Are there still Irish people in Ireland? Yes. Are there still English? Yes. It also does not make sense. The US is larger than China, yet China has over 3 times the population of the US. Clearly, there is space for people to live here. 

3rd world countries are not overpopulated. Actually, the densest collection of people in a large area would be Western Europe. Look at how many huge cities there are. Look at how close they are. London and Paris are extremely close to each other. Same with Amsterdam and Berlin. Barcelona and Madrid are not far, neither are Rome and Milan. 

Why would people want to replace the white race. You still have not answered that. 

AmberMiller
AmberMiller

Adnan the problem is even if immigrants here became wealthier there is still an enormous pool of them back in their countries trying to get here. Eventually they will crowd out and completely destroy the white race because of that. If the immigration was a one time event, then your theory might be true. It is not one time however as the third world countries are always overpopulated and generating endless supplies of, far more of their low IQ, low intelligence kind.In fact allowingf them to come here in fact allows them to reproduce even more quickly, the only way to stop them from so rapidly reproducing is to stop letting them come here and they will realize that they must stop overpopulating themselves. As long as we let them come here we are an emabler for their far more rapid reproductive rate and YES THEY WILL eventually destroy the white race by crowding us out. Also the only way those third world countries can fix their problems is to stop letting them come here, so that they are forced to solve their own problems rather than try to invade the US and as well to stop the brain drain from the third world. @adnan7631 @AmberMiller

I'm an Asian. My dad grew up in Nigeria. I can easily tell you that it simply is not true that Africa is a totally impoverished continent. IQ has a hereditary nature, however, studies have shown that it doesn't matter if the student goes through elementary school. People come to this country to become prosperous. If that means that they get a higher IQ and wealthier, good. Let them come. By the way, your numbers are changing and appear to be inconsistent. 

AmberMiller

Adnan, thats a lie. All African countries have an extremely low GDP and are highly impoverished. The only thing there that grows is their population. As well, Wealth and prosperity are linked to IQ and IQ is heriditary and is aligned with race. Different races have very different IQ levels. The average IQ in most African Countries is 70 compared to the 105 average European IQ. Peer reviewed studies have shown that IQ is mostly heriditary. Africans and Mexicans have a brain size that is 10% smaller than Europeans according to peer reviewed studoes. There are only three races that break the 105 average level, Europeans, Northern orientals and European Jews.  @adnan7631 @AmberMiller

Why would anyone want a war on white America? How does that make sense? By the way, SAT/ACT is significantly tied with wealth. If you make a black man wealthy, his kids will do just as well as white kids. The exception are asians who test above whites on average, and thus have tremendous social mobility. However, how can you say that there is a conspiracy with whites dying out when whites have an identical birth rate as every other ethnic group out there with similar economic status.

Actually, African countries have the highest growing economies in the world. And that is not merely because they are very poor. It's because they are run by smart people who happen to not be white. Wealth and prosperity and intelligence have nothing to do with race.

Adnan, i know  a college professsor and has seen both asians and whites and has seen that whites are actually as good as Asians at math and science, and possibly slightly better due to being more independant and creative. IQ and SAT score average data bear that out, that Europeans and Orientals are about the same in performance and IQ and all other races are 10-20% below the Oriental adn European levels. Blacks and mexicans score 20% lower on IQ tests. peer reviewed studies have shown IQ is heriditary and a race based trait.

I would like to mention as well that there is a genocidal war on white people who are being crowded off the face of the earth by rapacious third world immigration invasions. Third world immigrants are reproducing far more quickly than Europeans and there seems to be a conspiracy to exterminate Europeans through crowding out and immigration invasions. There is no threat of Indians becoming a minority in India or Mexicans becoming a minority in Mexico and both of these countries immediately deport illegals and have  low immigration level. We should not allow Europeans to become a minority in the country we founded, other countries such as Mexico or India would not allow this to happen to themselves and neither should we. Why is it that every other country has a right to enforce its immgiration laws but us? 

There is clearly a war to destroy white america and render Whites a small minority. if you ask me, that is hateful, obscene, violent and we should not tolerate it. Mexicans, Filipinos, Indians etc etc etc all have their own countries. Let them stay there, lets keep them out of here.

So, if your logic would hold, if you make these people wealthier, they will be smarter and over-all, better off. Well, why don't we let them in!

Besides, birth rates have been shown to also decrease as populations become wealthier. In other words, you don't really need to worry about the "extinction of the white race" because birth rates will, of course, slow down.

did you read whatn I said? Europeans have an average IQ of 105, compared to africans and mexicans at 85. IQ has been statistically tied to country wealth. The wealth of a country is due to the IQ level of its population. Every high GDP country has an average IQ of over 105 and there are only two racial groups that meet that IQ threshold, Europeans and Orientals. All low GDP countries have a low IQ of 85, and IQ is mostly due to genetic factors. Also you miss the big picture in that globally whites are being crowded out and in fact the white race is going extinct and being pushed out of existance by more rapidly reproducing third world groups. We should have a world where all races co-exist but each of these races needs to have its own majority realms. This is not the case as whites are being crowded off the face of the earth, becoming a minority in the US is only a representation of what is a genocidal war on the white race. Mexicans and so on have countries where they are the majority. The USA is a our majority country. @adnan7631 @AmberMiller

@AmberMiller That garbage that you talk about on science and math is bull. Who dominates the top colleges in the US? Asians. What jobs are the most diverse in ethnicity? The most high skilled.

@AmberMiller What difference does it make if someone is European or no not? Are we not all people?
