America the Beautiful and Strong: A Rethinking and a Repainting of her Landscape for a Minority-Majority era

In approximately 27 years there will be an American majority-minority—a new America.  Some are using the term minority-majority.  Irrespective, no single group will be a majority.  Thus, Blacks combined with Latinos and Asians will be the majority-minority block.  The American landscape has to be redrawn, repainted if you will.  How do we paint America so that it remains beautiful?  Surely, Whites cannot be the only stars as currently depicted on our flag.  For national security and the perpetuation of our Democratic Ideals, there must be Black stars, Latino stars, Asian stars, gay and lesbian stars, and mixed raced stars in the new America.  

 

Some may say America was never beautiful.  Yet, many abandoned properties in their homelands to remain in America as undocumented immigrants.   Others (Vietnamese, Haitians; Cubans) risked their lives on rickety boats to come to America.  In the past, some swapped passport pictures of babies to smuggle young children into America.  Pregnant females (scientists are working on getting males pregnant) came on visits to have ‘American babies”.  Some Asians spent thousands of dollars of borrowed money to come to America.  Such action with the hope of making money to repay loan sharks holding their homeland situated family members as hostages.  South Americans spent $thousands on coyotes to get them into America.  Certainly, America may not be all bad and ugly.  

 

However, will the new America maintain an ugly stripe, where Blacks will still be at the bottom of the totem pole, even lower than the lowest caste in India?  Will it be that even a reformed Middle East terrorist will get more respect--being able to hail a cab in NYC, while Blacks in suit and ties are passed by, even by Middle Eastern cab drivers?  Will ugly political fights be encourage between Blacks and Latinos by agents provocateur who, even as a minority, will want to maintain power?

Perhaps Blacks, Latinos, and other group attaining majority status will not lead to their political empowerment.  The Middle East evidenced how minorities dominate majorities.  However, in a high tech and increasingly dangerous world, America cannot be great or beautiful if the majority of its people are science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) dunces.  Noteworthy, it is the highly qualified STEM workers at the Office of Naval Research (ONR) who are responsible for maintaining our national security, and in our current White majority nation, ONR has difficulty finding enough STEM graduates to replace retirees.  

 

It is understood that America’s greatness was advanced by some malevolent German scientists who were recruited to work for us.  Could America take a chance and recruit “death to America” screaming fanatics, from the banned countries, to work in our defense department?  Surely, the Germans were not screaming death to America, but their intention for such predicament on us and our allies was manifested in various ways.  Still, I doubt any American leader would employ fanatics, even though we have had Russian agents given access to our networks, and the constant breach of our network and release of secrets suggest some unwise actions are being undertaken.  This is a horrible outcome.

 

There is hope that wise American leaders, accustomed to our way of life, and restricted by the other two branches of government, will ensure that irrespective of our future ethnic or racial majority, the people will be in place to maintain America’s beauty and her greatness.  Currently, President Trump has reached out to the presidents of historically Black colleges to ramp up their STEM graduates (mostly Blacks).  Additionally, he has not indicated he will cut the $100 million in STEM grants to help more Blacks, Latinos, and Females become STEM proficient.

Whites won't be.  Somehow people forget about "white trash."  My belief is stop illegal immigration (included half of which arrive her by plane on a tourist visa) and make sure those coming are here to work and contribute to society. We can control who we admit in our borders as far their intentions not their skin color.

I'd imagine the military has had this "problem" for decades. The majority of enlistees tend to be white, rural southerners, is it not (that I admit is a stereotype but I think it's pretty close to truth)?
 
Extremely smart, upper middle class folks in STEMS fields or any other don't choose the military (did they ever? since Vietnam?). 
 
But, educationally speaking, many Asian countries have blasted past European and American countries in the last couple decades. I think Singapore posts the best marks in the world by countries (followed by China). 
 
America is right in there though around 10th, just a bit after Germany and Britain where it's been for decades.

The problem in the Black community is the mindset of victimization.  
 
You are a victim, now stand there and scream about how much a victim you are and demand payment.
 
Other minorities, even illegal immigrants have worked the system and built fairly decent lives but the poor Black has not.  They seem to be in a perpetual state of waiting, waiting on someone to hand deliver prosperity to them on a silver platter.
 
 
 
As George points out,m we have a lot of "White trash" in America but most of those do fairly well too, I know many that do, but the problem is not so much being lazy as the concentration of those being lazy over a small area.  Most of the White trash is spread out, so it is easier for communities to handle them and easier for them to hammer out a better life at the fringes of society (like illegals) than it is for Blacks because most of their numbers are concentrated in extremely dense pockets here and there.
 
But the single biggest problem in the Black community is the destruction of the Black family.  Some areas see as high as 78% fatherlessness rate, something not seen in any other racial group in America.  That is the real core problem in the Black community and until they address this fact, nothing in general will ever change for them.

Dr. Rupert G., the question that you do not answer is simple will the combination of minorities of race. country of origin, religion, etc. be in the majority of being Americans, absorbed into the melting pot as other minorities have been in the past? Whites have never been the only star because there were Quakers Calvinist, Protestants, Catholics, wealth, middle class, terrorist, mercenaries from Germany, and many others. The skin may have been mostly white, but otherwise very different.
I know we disagree with the reason and who has promoted a class society, but we do agree that to have people in the top bracket of class pyramid there also has to be the base class of that pyramid. Due to the nature of American society all classes contain a mixture of races, religions, and country of origins. Not an evenly distributed mixture. We will agree that force of law is used to prevent the mobility of people between classes. And that money and political influence do result in people squeezing through the barriers moving between classes.
The questions that India's Gande and our Dr. Martin Luther King presented need to be answered by this generation. The answers they supported resulted in a majority of people from all races, religions, and countries of origin becoming citizens of A nation. The answers others promoted has resulted in the USSR, Communist China, Cuba, Vietnam, Iran, Argentina, Venezuela, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria.
Dr. Rupert G., the foundation of this Country is the Declaration of Independence that clearly rejects a society of Class. And the Constitution and Bill for Rights the first ten Amendments are written to address every word in that foundational document.  Create a government that rejects a society of Classes. Those that promote a "living" or "flexible" Constitution  promote a society of Classes because they want to change the reason for the document.  To turn the foundation into a government.  They promote the issues you present in your articles.

Yes, Blacks are not monolithic. and foreign Blacks do come here and succeed.  Yes , policies to purposely warehouse Blacks in projects and to keep the fathers away are now seen as a colossal failure. We are reaping the whirlwind. Were the Jewish brother and sisters offered payment? 
 
If White women are still being kept in their place, we could hardly see how Black men would be given a break. Thus, their victimization wolf cries should not be heeded as a White women's cries over Roe should not.

OK. I cannot out rightly reject your reasoning that there might have been Black Quakers protestants, Calvinists and others you named.  Blacks like Whites have been fucking around a long time, so I will accept underlined in your preceding statement to mean there were mulattoes. I do sense a weakness in your argument in equating race to religion .  The use of the term terrorist does call for a question as to its etymology. Indeed I would argue that using the word as presently used, if it was not for the terrorists in Germany, America may not have been created. The Germans  "terrorists" supplied the early Americans with the guns to defeat England.
 
A key point AMERICA HAS NEVER BEEN A MELTING POT. All groups are acculturated to be Americans, but they have their enclaves, their food preference, dressing preferences, religious preferences..etc.. Irish Americans, Caribbean Americans, Black Americans...etc. They distinguish the type of Americans they are.

God started with the class and race separations, making certain people chosen and others goyins (hope slept correctly). Still I dont believe God had anything to do with it. Separation was man's creation.
I can envision early cavemen adorning one who could hunt well or cave women choosing cavemen who had a buffed codpiece.  One can see the beginning of the class structure. Perhaps there were cavemen who had a penchant for cavemen with well developed asses; however, seeing that it is only recently that such individuals gained power from Obama, such argument may be moot.
 
Police/law is not used for the separations as in the pass, education is used. Visit Wall Streets and prisons and you will see. Sure on money and politics. When the Jews were denied access to Miami, they bought Miami (a saying). When the Irish came here as the lowest types of Whites, they controlled the police and fire departments and became powerful, discriminatory, and racist.
 
Yes on the cosmopolitan nature of America. Is it more cosmopolitan than Canada, or has Canada dealt with it differently. They must be choosing the less filthy people who will not shit on their cities.
 
By the way, class  is in the names... Rockefeller, Rothschild, etc. but it appears sex and money can buy privileged class. Arnold  is an example.

Yes indeed they come to America. No one is bigly kicking down the walls to get into the countries named. We ought to be careful, however, many are doing so to get to America. Sure the Constitution has been trying its best to do what it set forth to do.  Still we have the upper, high, and other classes. As we have been seeing with Trump, the Constitution is the great equalizer.  Trump can employ only White people to the White House, he has that right. In our electoral process, to the victor goes the spoils of victory. However, the looses maintain their Civil Rights. 
His two recent defeats show the Constitution at work. Trump and his high class friends cannot hijack America. 
 
In other countries, there would be blood letting in the streets from a Trump like supporting police, military, and goon squad trying to take power, and the people resisting. The Constitution prevents the need for such in America. However, the Bill of Rights were not originally given. It was the protests fled by the Anti-federalists that lead to the compromise.

People are people they have no control over their race, gender (well maybe some control but not at birth) the situation they were born into etc.   To use a current analogy if Donald Trump were not born into the situation he was would he be where he is  I think most would agree probably not from a statistical perspective.  So there is some truth that a lot of people have not gotten it and it works both ways.  So bitching about it an making wild broad assertions is probably not going to fix it, but maybe thinking about the issues and approaching change as necessary might finally get us there.  The joke among while males who have been broadly discriminated against in the job market because of preferences and we won't argue the ethics or do the ends justify the means, just the fact it did an does happen; is that by 2045 we will be in the minority and we are going to apply as a protected species.  Just a joke of course, but many of us got it long ago stop labeling people by race or gender or whatever.  Yes you need to probably do some of it, but first reactions should not be to describe a person by race, for example and that is what I perceive most people do.  So what is the change process??
