Whither the White People?

White America is under siege! In like 40 years they'll be a minority (though still with the majority of the money probably) but they are already being oppressed!

The latest offense? Jodi Kantor's New York Times story on how multi-culti our new First Family is, what with being Kenyan and Indonesian and Kansan and the first lady is descended from slaves. But how is this an offense against Real American Whiteness? Well Obama invited his aunt to the party for his inauguration, and she is an illegal immigrant! Noted non-white defender of whiteness Michelle Malkin is on the case!

The right-wingers untouched by yesterday's festivities (and to be fair, plenty of them were touched—Pat Buchanan, no racial progressive, was almost glowing after Obama's speech last night) and stories about his non-presidential familial circumstances are, of course, not racist at all, ever, and they have lots of black friends, but they just don't care for all this liberal white crowing about "diversity" as if that was some sort of noteworthy and virtuous thing.

Jay Nordlinger, for example, hated that speech because it was so mean to Bush, and therefore it was insulting to every white person who voted for Bush. BUT: "Speaking quite personally, I have never been an Obama-hater. I have never been much of an Obama disliker!" (This coming on the heels of his complaining about "ethno-racial variety", a bizarre phrase.)

Everyone's dander is up already, because The Atlantic wrote a big story on The End of Whiteness, which is about how it's more worthwhile to market shit to people based on self-selected non-racial group identities than just "to whites" and "to ethnics."

Today, largely because of immigration, there is no majority race in Hawaii or Houston or New York City. Within five years, there will be no majority race in our largest state, California. In a little more than 50 years, there will be no majority race in the United States. No other nation in history has gone through demographic change of this magnitude in so short a time ... [These immigrants] are energizing our culture and broadening our vision of the world. They are renewing our most basic values and reminding us all of what it truly means to be American.

Not everyone was so enthused. Clinton’s remarks caught the attention of another anxious Buchanan—Pat Buchanan, the conservative thinker. Revisiting the president’s speech in his 2001 book, The Death of the West, Buchanan wrote: “Mr. Clinton assured us that it will be a better America when we are all minorities and realize true ‘diversity.’ Well, those students [at Portland State] are going to find out, for they will spend their golden years in a Third World America.”

Hah. Pat was right, but not for the reason he thought he would be right, at all!

As "View From the Right explained, The Atlantic just published the piece because liberals want White People to be in the minority, and not because that is actually a "foregone conclusion" based on all available data. Why is the left consumed with the end of 'White America' asks some other joker, who then plays the always-fun "what if this had been written about BLACK PEOPLE I bet I'd get in trouble!" game.

Sorry, White People! You'll just have to settle for whomever will probably be president after Obama!
