I don't mean to derail the conversation, but that's a whole topic onto itself.  It seems almost schizophrenic to me the way we are represented in the media vs. what is the reality on the street.

A few months ago, my Dad said something interesting:

"If you want someone to do the job, get a Mexican."

My sister replied,"DAD!"

Dad replied,"What?  They're the only ones who actually ~want~ to work."

He is frustrated at the younger generation who doesn't want to get their hands dirty.

Very few manual labor jobs pay enough to sustain a family and that number is going to keep going down.

Re the Vox article:  Much of this fear of the unknown.  I think it would be telling to see how white people vote (and what they believe) in areas with ethnic diversity vs. places where there isn't.  Exposure makes a difference, the example that pops up in my head is Bobby Jindal, he's brown, of Indian descent, but reflects local values and that was enough to get him elected  governor in a very conservative state.

"Much of this change was apparent a few years ago, but opinions continue to shift in a slightly more left-leaning direction," Gallup's Jeffrey M. Jones wrote. "It would appear that US opinions will continue on this path, as younger, more liberal generations replace older, more conservative ones in the US population."

Pew Research:
Quote
Millennials are more than 40% nonwhite, the highest share of any adult generation; by contrast, Silents (and older adults) are 79% white.

 I guess Gen Xers are too small to pay attention to.

>Fox

There has been a shift in values from Boomers to Millennials and it isn't going to morph back to the Right as that generation ages.

The article also argues that people tend to be more liberal in their youth and then conservative as they get older. Honestly, I think that's a Boomer thing mostly.

100-150 years ago Americans were worried about the non-Protestant immigrants destroying America's identity.

Today we're celebrating things like Saint Patrick's day and America's favorite meals are pizza, spaghetti, bagels and hot dogs.  All courtesy of those who believe in the Catholic and the Jewish faiths.

YET, we still speak English and the first wave of immigrants identify as Americans- while still clinging to cultural touchstones to varying degrees. The traditions and food and language are absorbed.

I'm an American, born and raised. Today I purchased British & Eastern European sausages, cooked Italian food for lunch and cooked a Chinese meal for dinner the night before. That's America.

That whole thing about the Melting Pot was right. The ingredients remain in one form or another but it comes to define what America is at any given century.

The same will happen to the current immigrants as what was formerly THEIR culture becomes American culture.

Change. Can we get used to it already?

What MB said.  It's all part of the assimilation process.

Early America Conversation.

Immigrants to Anglos :  So what do you do for food here?
Anglos: Well mostly we boil it. A lot.
Italians, Poles, East Indians, Mexicans etc, all look at each other, say: Right, you Anglos go set at the table and leave the cooking to us.

"And a new study from Dowell Myers and Morris Levy, a demographer and a political scientist at USC, respectively, suggests that the media’s choices about how to characterize it make a real difference to people’s political response to these demographic trends."
