Are Visited Upon the Children
An interesting email popped into my account this morning. It was meant to be thought-provoking, and in a way it was. It was a series of statements essentially asking why affirmative actions by minorities are encouraged, but similar (and equally valid) actions by the white community are frowned upon.
In fact the word used most regularly in the email was “Racist”.
To the Third and the Fourth Generation
The politically correct (PC) way, that this present generation is trying to live by, is the result of European expansionism in the last 500 years. (It has been going on longer than that if you include Viking travels.) Europe ran out of room and resources, so they thought it best to conquer the rest of the world.
But the irony of that is the conquering action of the Moors before them, which was probably a result of the Crusades to the Middle East. (Do you get a picture of what was going on? Each time someone – say Genghis Khan – decided to conquer neighbouring lands, someone else returned the favour.)
If you want to blame the Romans for starting the whole conquering thing, the Greeks got there first.
Even the Old Testament Hebrews claimed someone else’s land as their own.
And that says nothing about Asians travelling over the land bridge from Russia to America, and becoming Native Indians in a new found land.
The Silent Majority
It is obvious that each country’s largest population is going to be in control of what everyone who lives there is allowed to do. That’s called democracy, in the West.
And diversity is encouraged, at least in some countries.
But other countries want everyone to blend in…
In Britain, for example, the immigration doors were open to Commonwealth members, as compensation for the impact of the English Empire on their homelands. But it seemed to get out of control when more Europeans started moving there, too, especially Baltic State citizens. Brexit was the result of the British people wanting to regain control of who could live within the UK borders. In some parts of Britain, you would be surprised at the mix of races there.
The United States has always had an open-door policy about immigration, as long as the people coming in became Americans. Recently, this has changed.
White people no longer feel any sense of superiority in their heritage. They are not allowed to feel pride for their past accomplishments. They are not encouraged to march in parades to support their preferences. Why?
Because when they do, they are racist.
Something has gone terribly wrong. The pendulum has swung too far.
