Whites afraid of becoming the minority


If there’s one thing I’ve observed in my life that pertains to the current state of racial prejudice in this country, it’s that the prevailing fuel for white people’s racism is their fear of the possibility that they might finally become less than the majority. With two white parents, as kind as they are, little phrases have always popped up that appear to have racist roots. Things like mentioning the statistics on how many children the middle eastern families have, and how fast their numbers are growing as a result. Obviously not felt by all, but the fear of not being the majority seems to be what drives a large amount of today’s racism.
