Why the Big White PanIc from Fox Fantasy These Days?
Well, in addition to watching Black voters vote overwhelmingly Democratic in 2020, there’s a wave of nonwhite immigrants who are also leaning Democratic. That has set off tremendous negative energy—not only by white supremacists in the general population, but also by Republican office holders—to attack immigrants of third world countries, curtail all non-white immigration, disenfranchise Black and Brown voters, and for God’s sake pretend that isn’t what you’re doing at all.
First, what is the third world? It’s a label used to describe poor countries, or developing countries, and by extension, mostly nonwhite majority countries.
When White Supremacists worry about immigrants from the third world, they are talking about Hispanic, Asian and Black people who will outnumber “current” voters. Current voters are the white voters who actually do not make up the majority of American voters at all anymore. The American complexion has dramatically changed—pardon the pun. And that’s why Trump-GOPers want to go backwards (“Make America Great/White Again). Sadly, the big question is why don’t Republicans want to regain their political power by appealing to new immigrants coming to the United States today, instead of locking them in cages?
They’re too distracted and scared. Unfortunately, for the moment the GOP is held captive by a racist, anti-Semitic, patriarchal and conspiratorial “white replacement theory” spun by the dinosaurs of their party hell-bent on freaking out all those not in lock step with them. Known as the “great replacement theory,” it teeters on the premise that nonwhite immigrants are being imported (“often by the Jewish community!”) to replace white people and white voters. The theory is also an inherent put down of white women, by the way, for having a lower birthrate than nonwhite women.
It stinks from every rotten angle.
The architects of “White America” have carved out a definition so deadly and narrow that it actually rendered itself unsustainable and in danger of collapse right after the Civil War. And yet the rage against racial equality continues as if it makes some kind of invisible good sense that only sharp-eyed bigoted White Supremacists can see.
SNAP OUT OF IT! Replacement of the white majority in this country by a more multiracial, multi-sexual, multicultural majority is an unstoppable speeding train that has already arrived. All aboard, period.
