The Census Bureau says whites will no longer be in the majority in America by the year 2042. That is mainly because of three factors – a low birth rate among whites, high numbers of immigrants and a large birth rate among immigrants, legal and illegal.
All people are made in the image of God and this is less about race than what the multiculturalists want to do to transform our nation. Already they are teaching in schools that dead white Europeans are the past and we need to learn from other countries, including their values, law and history. A current and former member of the Supreme Court have said America could learn much from the laws of other nations.
Again, this is not about race. It is about what kind of nation we want to pass down to our children and grandchildren. If we continue with open borders and a failure to deal with illegals, it won’t be the kind of country we inherited from our parents and grandparents. Politicians could fix this, but they are after votes, not preserving the unique character of America which has made us the greatest nation on earth.
