“The U.S. Bureau of the Census has projected that America will have a ‘non-white’ majority by 2044.” (H/T: National Review)
I don’t know any real white people. We are all shades of color, thus, “non-white.” White means Caucasian. That makes Hispanics “white” because they are Caucasian since their ancestors came from Spain. Jaime Gonzalez writes the following in “I’m White in Barcelona but in Los Angeles I’m Hispanic?”
“I was born and raised in Barcelona, in northeast Spain, and although I had never given much thought to this matter, I always thought I was white. With dark Mediterranean features, but white.
“Genetically speaking, we Spaniards are a mix of the different civilizations that have settled in the Iberian Peninsula throughout the centuries: the Visigoths from northern Europe, the Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans from the Mediterranean region and the Moors from northern Africa.
That’s why in the same family you can have someone with blond hair and blue eyes and someone with darker features.
“[M]any in the US mistakenly believe that Latino it is also a racial category.”
Contrary to Jorge Ramos, “Hispanic” is not a race but an ethnic category like Italian, German, or Irish. Ramos would not get the traction he needs if he could not play the race card. The race card makes a Royal Flush in political terms while the ethnic card only gives him a pair of twos.
“Italians and Jews were once viewed as ‘non-white,’ and are now part of the ‘white majority.’” Skin color is not always an accurate designation of a person’s race. Consider Indians from India who have very dark skin. If we “look at their genes . . . it is clear that most Indians have genes that line up fairly well with the rest of the Caucasian or Caucasoid group.”
Did you know that “the Census Bureau counts all children of mixed parentage as minority, regardless of how they identify themselves”? Our nation’s Census Bureau and party politics are to blame for the confusion because they need “minorities” to victimize for political and economic gain:
“The way the Census Bureau reports, the children of Ted and Heidi Cruz are now and forever ‘minorities’ because they have one Latino grandparent, Ted Cruz’s Cuban-born father. Same for the children of Jeb Bush: now and forever ‘minorities.’ Of such nonsense are these Census statistics composed.”
Race is a political construct based on evolutionary presuppositions. R. J. Rushdoony writes:
“The theory of evolution fueled . . . scientific racism and added still another important factor. Many theories began to hold to a multiple origin for the human race. Whereas in Scripture all men are descendants of Adam, in evolutionary thought, all men are possibly descendants of very differing evolutionary sources. Common descent in Adam meant a common creation, nature, and responsibility under God. The idea of multiple origins proved divisive. The human race was no longer the human race! It was a collection of possibly human races, a very different doctrine.”
The Bible knows nothing about separating or uniting people based on race:
“He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children’” (Acts 17:26-28).
But abiding by this truth does not create any political advantage or leverage. Rushdoony continues:
“The words of Paul are a sharp rebuke to all who want men to glory in their blood, race, or history: ‘For who regards you as superior? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?'” (1 Cor. 4:7).
