    Prove that the second generation doesn't speak English and doesn't participate in American culture and politics.

    When groups of people convert to agriculture from being nomadic hunter gatherers their quality of life, population levels, nutrition and health get significantly worse for quite a while (a few generations) until they develop their agriculture techniques to an adequate level of effectiveness.

    It is so ironic that in my short lifetime, 60+ years, we have gone from a nation that discriminates to a nation that realized that discrimination on the basis of race is morally reprehensible to a nation that seems to be saying, Hey Whitey, you are about to become a minority and you better watch out".

    Personally, I always supported the middle concept. Racism is wrong. Yet apparently we have divided the nation into their racial groups and know that the groups with the power and numbers can do what they want.

    We have lost our idealism. MLK, Jr. is dead and his dream is dead. All that remains is a majority that wants to control things for their benefit.

    I would have no problem being a minority in a country that lives up to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and MLK, Jr.'s dreams.

    I'm not sure that is exactly true. I believe that they benefit quickly, but only because their hunter-gathering lifestyle is no longer suitable due to environmental (not necessarily climactic in nature) changes.

    After all, why would they go to all the effort that agriculture requires (plowing, weeding, irrigating, planting, etc) when they could simply spend a few hours a day gathering stuff as they wandered around *unless* gathering and hunting was no longer providing them sufficiently?

    Yes, I was there yesterday and saw plenty of English signage and plenty of people speaking English. And I'm in La Puente, talk about Latino community, and still 2nd generation are fluent in English, go to pubic school, have iphones and other American culture items,... there is one small grocery that is predominately Spanish language products, but the people working there speak English and have no problem helping an ignorantly uni-lingual 'merican like me. There are also two other grocers same within a block or so that are just your normal Vons or Food4Less or Walmart Marketplace so it's not like I can't go somewhere else just as easily. My printer about three blocks away is Iranian, and there are dozens of Asian owned restaurants throughout.

    I think you just try to focus on things that offend you and are way too easily offended.

    Most of the Hispanics where I live speak fluent English. Never had a problem communicating with any of them.

    I do admit though that I like when hot Hispanic girls speak Spanish

    No, of course not. Are you familiar at all with their history? Communism? Pearl Harbor? The remaking of modern Japan by the Americans?

    Yes, such as the Obama family's children.

    Believe whatever you want to believe.

    Me, I believe that in about 30-years massive demographic change is going to hit the GOP like a tidal wave and the GOP, if it survives at all, will be reduced to a minor, regional party.

    Wait and see.
    if you don't lump all considered minorities into one group, my statement is factual correct.
    Go Vols
