Racism Underlies Mass Immigration

by Lewis Loflin

The real racists are Liberals in alliance with business. Liberals were supposed to champion working class issues such as better wages and full employment. Instead they promote mass immigration to achieve their dream of a "multicultural" society.

"Multiculturalism is defined as all cultures are equal, and that the U.S. must accept its destiny as a universal nation, a world nation, in which no one culture - especially European culture - will be dominant. The ideal of multiculturalism is a nation which has no core culture, no ethnic core, no center other than a powerful state apparatus."

It's more important to leftist liberals to undermine and destroy traditional American culture than helping those on the bottom pull themselves up.

A study in 2004 claims white families's wealth advantage has grown after the last recession (2001) and blames it on racism. I disagree, the real cause is mass immigration. To quote the article,

net worth increased 17% for white households from 1996 to 2002 and 14 percent for Hispanic homes, to about $7,900. It fell for black households by 16 percent, to roughly $6,000. The median net worth for all American households, representing all races and ethnicities, was $59,700 in 2002, a 12 percent gain from 1996.

Only white homes recouped all their losses from 2001 to 2002. Both Hispanics and blacks lost nearly 27 percent of net worth from 1999 to 2001; the next year Hispanics gained it almost all back (26 percent), while blacks were up only about 5 percent.

As the article continues, it reveals what really happened,

Hispanics were more insulated from the downturn than blacks, so they suffered less. For example, Hispanics made employment gains in lower-paid, lower-skilled areas like service and construction.

Blacks were hit hard by job losses in the manufacturing industry and in professional fields, where they were victims of "last hired, first fired" policies..

This hit many poor whites hard as well, but as a percentage of the white population, it shows little impact. Hispanics were so far down to begin with, they did go up even as millions of them flooded the low-wage service and construction industries.

This depressed wages across the board and those losing jobs in manufacturing for example faced even more depressed wages in services and construction. Here in Appalachia the only growth industries is services and even here the damage done by illegal aliens hurts.

Blacks, who finally started to move into the middle class in sizable numbers, saw that very middle class shrink and as the last in, they got hit the hardest. It wasn't planned racism, it's cheap labor economic policies built on mass immigration. The results none the less end up racist.

We don't want an overblown socialist welfare state but at the same time we can't follow policies designed to lock millions into poverty.

One more thing to note is the report doesn't separate legal Hispanics from illegal aliens.
