    What?

    Look. Love has an emotional element to it, and maybe someone just doesn't feel attracted to people who look different or come from a different background.

    Put simply, having an emotional racial preference does not make someone a racist, nor are people obligated to justify their racial feelings to others anymore than why they like strawberry ice cream.



    OK, the article is clearly trying to spur fearmongering. MSNBC loves to do this with its Rockefeller Republican/civic nationalist persona.

    300million/6 = 50 million Hispanics.

    In 2008, We had about 11 million illegal immigrants of which 81% (8.91m) are Hispanic.

    That means 17.8% of Hispanics are illegal.

    Look. I won't deny that illegal immigration is a problem, but the goal of this article is to obviously make people panic and fall for being called racists.

    Upholding due process would fix all of this. This is especially important for the working class which doesn't need "liberals" hiding behind multiculturalism to break down the labor market.

    Obviously, marriage and the labor market are connected in how children with stable parents can compete better and have a better shot at social mobility.

    It's no surprise, then, that "liberals" have been suggesting a breakdown of the traditional family unit is OK as well. They DON'T WANT social mobility. They're elitists who want to preserve their social status while others envy, and scrounge to become, them.
    Nobody said having a racial preference was racist. Jesus H. Christ. Nobody even TANGENTIALLY touched on immigration issues either.

    And please substantiate your claim that liberals support a breakdown of the family unit.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It's not about the marriages (for me)....it's about the children. It's time to shove over and allow black and white mixed kids to acknowledge BOTH sides of their heritage, and stop with the "one drop" horse****.

    WASHINGTON Interracial marriages in the U.S. have climbed to 4.8 million a record 1 in 12 as a steady flow of new Asian and Hispanic immigrants expands the pool of prospective spouses. Blacks are now substantially more likely than before to marry whites.

    A Pew Research Center study, released Thursday, details a diversifying America where interracial unions and the mixed-race children they produce are challenging typical notions of race.

    "The rise in interracial marriage indicates that race relations have improved over the past quarter century," said Daniel Lichter, a sociology professor at Cornell University. "Mixed-race children have blurred America's color line. They often interact with others on either side of the racial divide and frequently serve as brokers between friends and family members of different racial backgrounds," he said. "But America still has a long way to go."

    The figures come from previous censuses as well as the 2008-2010 American Community Survey, which surveys 3 million households annually. The figures for "white" refer to those whites who are not of Hispanic ethnicity. For purposes of defining interracial marriages, Hispanic is counted as a race by many in the demographic field.

    New milestone: 1 in 6 US residents is Hispanic


    continued.
