It probably won't. 

Yes, it will, well before 2043 (more like 2035) the majority of the US population will be Latino.

 I have a slight worry that there could be some white racism from those who feel white meant extra privilege growing up, or came to distrust whites. 

Oh man, I'd love to hear what you think white racism is.

I grew up in Tennessee below the Mason Dixon line and spent a fair amount of time in Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, North and South Carolina as a kid.  I'm old enough to have experienced the desegregation of schools while I was in school and the experiences that came with that. 

 

No you aren't!  I am going to play my bullshit card on this one.  You were still breast feeding in the 60's.

The flag is simply about Southern pride to 99% of those who fly it.  What gets me is idiots have the right to burn or stomp on an American flag but we shouldn't have the right to fly a flag that means "the South" to us.  I don't discriminate because of color.  I don't disparage because of color.  I don't befriend based on color.  This argument is so stupid.  The flag represents the south.  Not slavery.  You people really need to get some real problems in your life so you have real things to worry about.

The US Census Bureau  projects that the "White Majority" will cease to exist in 2043.

Out of curiosity, to anyone who wants to answer, how do you foresee this event impacting your quality of life?

I think it will mean there will be a lot more color in the old folks home with me.

Is my reply that "it wont" read as that the white majority won't cease to exist? I was trying to say that it probably won't affect me - I believe it will happen though. And by white racism I meant some prejudice or discrimination against white people from other races. But I think it'll be relatively insignificant, and be a bit of a phase as racial issues slowly stabilize. Does that answer your question?

He meant that he was old enough to see the PBS documentary on desegregation when it originally aired in the early 70s - not the lame re-runs that they show now during the pledge-a-thons

 

That counts... doesn't it?

Can you give an example as to how there is racial prejudice against white people, or a white person being racially discriminated against in the US?

Maybe we can take down the Stars and Stripes too. Slaves were owned in the original 13. Or burn all the paintings of Washington and Jefferson. Or better yet let's blow up the Jefferson memorial or topple the Washington monument. Let's just wipe out our white history before 1868.  Let's burn all the history books, the facts are not being taught anyway. You Marxists are rewriting the history books and teaching gender coolness instead. What's the point?

Bunch if fucking idiots behaving like ISIS destroying Christian historical artifacts. Do you idiots even hear what you're saying? Obama and his  sycophants are getting their fundamental change. 

Bernie Sanders makes sense to you? Lol WTF.

51% are in govt handout, and the middle class is footing the bill, but unemployment is under 7%? Lol public education math at it's finest.

You're all a bunch of useful idiots, just like the prols in during the Bolshevik Revolution. And they all ended up dead or in a gulag after they set up the new order.

i work my balls off so you idealistic utopian commies can fuck up this country. I fear for my life in retirement when I get denied medical care. I won't see my social security Ponzi scheme check. No borders no currency no language no history = no country.

fuck all of you.

see you in six months to view who else has been empaled on Obamas cock.    

Good point. On the Murica' flag. Native Americans probably do find it offensive. So that should go as well. 
How does the UK feel about our flag? It looks a lot like the one we had when the deceleration of Independence was signed. You know considering this country was founded by treasonist and all.

Your phrasing implies present time. I'm talking about ~2035-2043, or whenever the white population ceases to be the racial majority - just to be clear. To give a hypothetical example, perhaps a predominently non-white parent school board has members who discount a white person's opinion on education tactics because they feel their being white meant privilege and wealth, and they simply don't understand the issue being discussed. Or a non-white manager is afraid to hire a white person, fearing entitlement and an upbringing that did not foster hard work. Again, I don't think it's going to be some widespread problem. There will always be ignorant people of all races. I'm arguing that I could see an unintentional 'tables have turned' period.

Are you asking because you're not sure you're understanding, interested in different point of view, or because you think there's something ludicrous and/or wrong with what I said?

While the American flag may have been behind some oppressive or tragic moments in history, it ultimately stands for something more meaningful. That's what separates it from the confederate flag. Many people seem to believe it only stands for the confederate army and their fighting to retain slavery. Similar to the way the swastika strictly symbolizes hate and bigotry.

Me thinks that Pops Racer is already displeased at the rate Independence is decelerating which is why he posted his post

In 40 years he may be insane from anger

Funny, if you think desegregation was completed in the 60's then you clearly don't understand how it rolled out across the public school systems in the South and in the North. The de facto segregation that was in place in the North was overcome through mandatory busing in many cities. Go look up the Delaware decisions to desegregate the Wilmington school district that happened in 1976.  We moved from Tennessee when I was in third grade and just in time for my older siblings to experience the race riots in the middle and high schools and for me to climb on a bus to ride it down to the inner city schools.  In second grade I had 12 kids I walked to school with from my immediate neighborhood.  After the ruling of Evans v. Buchanan there were three of us walking to school when they started busing city (i.e. black) kids to our school in the suburbs because the other parents put their kids in private schools.  My parents asked me if I wanted to attend with my friends and I told them it didn't seem to make sense for them to pay additional money for me to attend a different school when our tax dollars already provided a good public education.  From 4th-6th we rode the bus into the city. Middle School and High School we moved back into the suburbs.

And it wasn't just in Delaware, it happened in Nashville, TN, Boston, MA, Pasadena, CA and other cities across the country.
