White America is quietly self-segregating

And more than half of white Americans believe the country's "way of life" needs to be protected against foreign influences. About 84 percent of Trump supporters feel that way.

Labor struggles were not the only conflicts Italian immigrants faced. During the years of the great Italian immigration, they also had to confront a wave of virulent prejudice and nativist hostility.

As immigration from Europe and Asia neared its crest in the late 19th century, anti-immigrant sentiment soared along with it. The U.S. was in the grips of an economic depression, and immigrants were blamed for taking American jobs. At the same time, racialist theories circulated in the press, advancing pseudo scientific theories that alleged that “Mediterranean” types were inherently inferior to people of northern European heritage. Drawings and songs caricaturing the new immigrants as childlike, criminal, or subhuman became sadly commonplace. One 1891 cartoon claimed that “If immigration was properly restricted, you would never be troubled with anarchism, socialism, the Mafia and such kindred evils!”


Attacks on Italians were not limited to the printed page, however. From the late 1880s, anti-immigrant societies sprang up around the country, and the Ku Klux Klan saw a spike in membership. Catholic churches and charities were vandalized and burned, and Italians attacked by mobs. In the 1890s alone, more than 20 Italians were lynched.

One of the bloodiest episodes took place in New Orleans in 1891. When the chief of police was found shot to death on the street one night, the mayor blamed “Sicilian gangsters” and rounded up more than 100 Sicilian Americans. Eventually, 19 were put on trial and, as the nation’s Italian Americans watched nervously, were found not guilty for lack of evidence. Before they could be freed, however, a mob of 10,000 people, including many of New Orleans’ most prominent citizens, broke into the jail. They dragged 11 Sicilians from their cells and lynched them, including two men jailed on other offenses. Italians worldwide were outraged, but the U.S. press generally approved of the action. It was the largest single mass lynching in U.S. history.


The concept of what is "white" is fluid.

People are self segregating.  In America some is by race and some of what we think is by race is really about cultures and subcultures or a combination of race and cultures.

In 1900 American cities had their German town, Greek town, China town districts.  You had Irish, Italian, Polish, Black neighborhoods.  In a city near me the Serbs and Croats lived in different ends of town.  They all worked together in the mills and got on just fine, but they didn't live next to each other.  The Poles were the buffer between them.

Cuban Americans, Mexican Americans, other Hispanic Americans don't  live together unless there are so few of them that they have to.   Because it has to be scary whether you were a German in 1850 or a Cuban  in 1959 coming to a huge place with different culture and language.  You tend to seek out your own people.

The culture stuff all breaks down in a few generations.  Race takes longer but we see that finally breaking down too.

I was listening to an interesting interview by the author of a book on immigration history. He made the point that these great anti-immigrant paroxysms typically come when the number of foreign-born people living in the US reaches a given percentage. If I recall, it was around 20-22%. Then there's a crackdown, borders tighten, it drops 5% over the course of a generation, and then people get more comfortable with the idea.

And in the meantime, while everyone settled in, Italians, Irish and Jews became "white" because...
