As the pro-Obama media pushes harder and harder to make race the issue as to every policy dispute, race actually is becoming less and less an issue in society, Intermarriage rates soar as stereotypes fall:

According to the Pew study, about 15 percent of new marriages in 2010 crossed racial or ethnic lines, double the rate from three decades ago. Intermarriages comprise 8 percent of all marriages now, up from just 3 percent in 1980. And most Americans tell pollsters they are untroubled at the prospect of intermarriage in their own family.

“In the past half century, intermarriage has evolved from being illegal, to being taboo, to being merely unusual,” said Paul Taylor, director of the Pew Research Center. “With each passing year, it becomes less unusual. . . . The face of the country is changing, and behaviors are changing with it.” …

As intermarriage rates have grown, attitudes have changed dramatically. In a 1986 Roper Poll, two-thirds of the people said they could never imagine themselves marrying someone from a different race. In a 2009 Pew poll,  just 6 percent of whites and 3 percent of blacks said they would not accept an interracial marriage in their family.

We keep hearing about a demographic time bomb, usually from Democrats who hope it will work to their advantage.

But the reality is that the demographic time bomb is that race matters less and less, and that is bad news for Democrats who feed on racial division as a political strategy.

But…

Samuel L. Jackson. Why is racism OK?

DINORightMarie | February 16, 2012 at 9:49 am

So just why does the race card still work? Is it “white guilt” as the racial/social justice libs keep saying? Or is it just that we are so anti-racist that we viscerally react when the race issue is brought into the discussion?

When that race card – and the “Teflon” of hiding behind it – is no longer effective, then I believe we will have finally gotten beyond race politics.

Question is: will we make it that long, with all the Alinsky-ites pounding raaaaacism 24/7/365?

    I don’t think the race card works very well any longer. Blacks have cried “Wolf” too many times over nothing and have generated a broad opinion of them as “dining out” on their skin color. Organizations such as the NAACP have become caricatures of the civil rights movement of 50 years ago. It’s time to speak out about it instead of cowering in fear of lawsuits, penalties, Eric “My people” Holder, Jesse “Shakedown” Jackson and Al “Tawana” Dumbton.

    As to the entire race issue, what we are really left with are intimidated whites, not so much white guilt, although public schools, the entertainment industry and the media are doing the best and most they can to continue to inculcate “white guilt” among the young.

That news has gotta be a real bummer for the race baiters.

There has to be a way to spin this as evidence of increased racism. MSNBC, don’t fail me now.

Nothing will stop many of these “race baiters” who permanently live in the past. The present (and future) are unimportant.

1. The way some leftists talk about race reminds me of how Marxists talk about class. Just a coincidence, I’m sure. /

2. But the reality is that the demographic time bomb is that race matters less and less, and that is bad news for Democrats who feed on racial division as a political strategy.

No worries. The Left will come up with new pretexts for playing the victim.

3. By no means has systemic injustice disappeared from our society. My point that the Left is less interested in eradicating systemic injustice than it is growing the State via a victim/entitlement mentality.

    Remember, liberal leftists talk in ‘Opposites’ (the reverse of truth) and Projection (projecting their own POV onto others).

    They call Tea Party who want to balance the budget and pay off the debt: terrorists, treasonous and unAmerican. This certainly applies to our current regime.

    Liberals prove the truth of that old childhood saying, “What you say is what you are,”

      In reality, by birth, upbringing association, actions/record and speech, Obama is a Marxist Muslim Black Supremacist. This is racism and classism on steroids.

      Down to their core texts and doctrines, by all the evidence, Islam is a group of (and always will be unless they repent and reform) bigots, racial haters, misogynists, supremacists, aggressors.

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to gs. | February 16, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    I see no race of people being systematically discriminated against in this country except whites. Or is that the group you were speaking of as being the subject of “systemic injustice”?

By making “race” an issue.

Insisting that people identify themselves in accordance with various arbitrarily-defined races or creeds. Perpetuating ostensible need for affirmative actions. Carrying on if artificial demographic divisions of society (as defined from time to time) are not adequately “represented” in this or that college, workplace, industry, neighborhood, or Congressional district. Continuing emphasis on programs based on differential treatment, e.g. minority businesses, e.g. school busing, even if no longer needed or unproductive. Telling little kids in school that they are thisses or thats.

The problem with the Pew study is how they break it down. It says racial and “ethnic” lines. Is Pew considering Hispanic a race? If so, which race since Pew’s own research found that most Hispanics consider themselves caucasian (white). If that is part of the “ethnic” line, then that line should have also included Italians marrying Irish, Germans marrying English, Jews marrying other “ethnic” groups. And whites marrying Hispanics in great numbers has been going on for over six decades.

Racial/ethnic lines are being reduced but that is to be expected. It doesn’t mean that there is less racial/ethnic strife because there isn’t. The Democrats continue to promote that strife with “protected class” government dictates.

DINORightMarie, I suggest you read Shelby Steele’s book, if you want an answer to the “white guilt” issue.

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to retire05. | February 16, 2012 at 3:21 pm

    If you think about it, they have to be treating Hispanic as a separate race, even though it’s a white ethnicity. They could not reach the conclusions they have withoout separating Hispanics from whites because blacks don’t marry and there aren’t enough Asians in the population to reach the numbers indicated.

I married a heterosexual female.

“But the reality is that the demographic time bomb is that race matters less and less, and that is bad news for Democrats who feed on racial division as a political strategy.”

I may or may not make a more intelligent comment on this issue later on but right now my visceral reaction to all of this race-baiting is to shout….

Hey Leftists! There’s a BLACK man in the White House.
DOES THIS TELL YOU ANYTHING?

How is the Democratic kettle going to call the E pluribus unum melting pot, “racist”?

My dad was Chinese. My mother was American of German ancestry. When they were married, their marriage was illegal in a number of states. My first wife was of German, French, and Hunkpapa Lakota ancestry. My oldest daughter is the resulting mix of heritages.

My second wife is a mixture of Northern Europe with strong Dutch,Highland Scot, and Irish components. When we were married, I was informed in no uncertain terms by the St. Andrews Society that I was now a member in good standing of her Highland Clan. Being fond of bagpipes, single malt, and finding that the Clan fought alongside the Great Montrose; I have no problem with that, and I have been known to carry the Clan’s tartan banner in the Parade of the Clans at Highland Games. And, of course, our 3 children reflect that ethnic mix.

My wife’s family is huge. I do not yet have grandchildren, I have a horde of nieces and nephews. The inter-marriage rate for her family [based in the middle of Kansas, mind you] has been huge. I have nieces and nephews who are part Black, Hispanic, Filipino, Central American Indian, Korean, Chinese, and Chamorro; just from her side. It does not matter; family is family.

When I was working, the PC bean-counters in my Department were insistent that we all had to take annual courses in Cultural Diversity, lest we become white racists. Mind you, the Officers who worked for me in my crew were themselves a racial and gender rainbow; albeit not a PC one because cop-culture is not PC.

Reality is overturning their paradigm.

    Subotai Bahadur, great comment!

    How far we’ve come. One of my best friends growing up, from the fourth grade until he passed away the summer before our senior year in high school, was the son of a British merchant marine and a Korean mother.

    It was much less common then to be mixed. With my own mixed kids, nobody bats an eye.

    My childhood friend knew instinctively, just as my children know, that the meaning of race itself doesn’t amount to a hill of beans … except to the bean counters–liberal whites and minority racial shakedown artists.

    What matters is culture … and, of course, most of all, the character of the individual.

    I was talking one time to our oldest daughter about my nephew, her cousin. He dropped out of college after becoming sick of the oppressive PC atmosphere. My daughter and I were talking about it and how, especially white male undergrads, can become quite uncomfortable being told endlessly they are the root of all evil in the world.

    My daughter, who adores her (white male) cousin and is equally anti-PC, said (as best as I can remember),

    “It’s so unfair. Jim is the sweetest person in the world. But with my brown skin tone I’m bulletproof against anybody calling me a racist and I can get away with murder a lot of the time, too!”

    We’ve come so far … and the left is trying desperately to push us way, way back.

    I call BS on this study, at least as it pertains to actual RACE, but better the public think it anyway. Let a misleading study benefit the good guys for a change.

    *shrug*

The liberal left is many cards short of a full deck.

They only have these few cards:
Race
Hate
Bigot
Phobe
Hypocrite
Crazy
Corrupt
Mean

And they play them over and over…thinking they trump everything else.

When someone brings evidence of their rotten records and results, out come their cards.

When their candidate or initiative is about to be defeated, out come their cards.

When someone disagrees with their ideas, out come their cards.

    They may only have a few cards, but they still manage to stack the deck.

    Is the purpose of playing the race/bigot/hate/etc card to humiliate the Repub/Conservative/Right-Winger or is it to get their base frothing at the mouth?

      Their purpose is to keep us divided and unfocused on their agenda.

      It’s easy to stack the deck when the other cards have allowed themselves to be scattered on the floor…..ergo the rise of the Tea Party.

      JackRussellTerrierist in reply to SoCA Conservative Mom. | February 16, 2012 at 3:10 pm

      Keep your eye on the Money Card, folks, not the race card. We are being robbed to fund the “progressive” agenda. Blacks, being the largest minority by identifiable skin color and having the lowest IQs by identifiable skin color, have long been the most coveted and protected plantation sheeple voters by the left. The cornerstones of black culture guarantee member loyalty to the leftist regime. Blacks have fulfilled their stereotype, and are handsomely paid as foot soldiers for it with your money, but the lion’s share of it goes to the larger, leftist elitist machine. Blacks can only “compete” superficially through the force of law, much of which is generated by leftwing activist judges and “policy”. Blacks simply do not have the innate intelligence or cultural drive to compete with any other race, and the left has turned those deficiencies into a revenue-generating scheme. A major building block of the scheme is the welfare system and the horrendous out-of-wedlock birth rate among blacks (about 72%). Therefore, the black population, which comprises 13% of the total population, could not numerically be a prominent feature in this study’s conclusion.

      The race issue is the largest, or at least the longest running, of numerous cover stories for the left’s highway robbery. The “race” card is the left’s hole card, but there are other “cards”, such as the global warming hoax and various other environmental scams, the deliberately created failures in public education, the “woman’s right to choose” and “women’s health” public-funding scams, the “too big to fail” scams to protect unions, etc..

JackRussellTerrierist | February 16, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Marriage rates among black men and women, to each other or to a member of another race, is a very small number compared to marriage rates of other races. Blacks just don’t marry in anything near the numbers of other races. They mate and run. So, this study seems to extrapolate a conclusion that doesn’t reflect reality, and probably does it by substituting ethnicity for race.

This would explain their effort to accelerate establishment of a hegemony. The old divisions are reconciling, despite their efforts to perpetuate them.

They will always have promises of instant gratification.
