    Well it wasvMe5kel who opened Germany up to welcoming thousands if migrants who are now happily integrated into German society and contributing to its economy.
    Merkel was never à communist and spent her CHILDHOOD in East Germany.
    What garbage sites are you reading??
    I note you block information from those who actually live in places you disseminate misinformation about.
    Perhaps one should take your posts rather lightly.

    Do you actually know anything about European culture that is not some photocopy of something someone else wants you to believe?
    Third world migrants to the UK are today surely missed since Brexit. Crops are dying from want of processing , pigs are being inhumanely slaughtered for want of abattoir workers, the health service is suffering from lack of doctors and nurses.Hôtels and restaurants are closing for lack of staff.
    I suggest before you copycat garbage you check out the facts.

    White people do not work. They just sit around and get privilege checks.

    You've completely misread it, again.

    Regardless of your race or religion or background, cultures other than the one you grew up in can be very enriching. I just happened to grow up in a majority white suburb of Los Angeles. Of course, one has to be open to the experience.

    Just not how the world works. Merit matters, but many advantages are passed by generation including social connections that allow an application to float to the top, but many things before that such as activities and clubs where you need to fit in, and it helps to look like others. People on the top like to pretend it was only merit and ignore the context around them, while people on the bottom pretend only context matters.

    No diversity means composed of substantial numbers of people of different backgrounds. People who promote diversity allege that having various perspectives enriches peoples lives and helps foster creativity/innovation in the workplace. Whether cultures are equal is also controversial, but generally people are expected to assume races/ethnicities are equal.

    Diversity isn't a big part of my beliefs as a liberal. There are pros and cons to it. I mentioned the pros. The cons are indeed a loss of social stability and eventually a change in national identity. This isn't armageddon though. The irish came, were opposed, and America wasn't destroyed by them either.

    If liberalism is a part of your ideology, look around you. Perhaps it’s time to start thinking for yourself instead of someone else’s political ideals? Yes, diversity is a result of different backgrounds (cultures). That can’t occur unless they’re invited in and the reason they’re invited in is because of open borders based on equality.

    pixie is not one of those people, and your unwillingness to listen to pixie is symptomatic of the problems revealed in this thread.

    "western civilization" is, and has always been , multicultural. monocultures are open to spread of disease, such as the hysteria which is now gripping american conservatives (who seem to have a genetic weakness to such hysteria.)

    we are all americans. we all need to work together and, if need be, fight together. there are very real enemies out there in the real world. you don't need to look for internal enemies, or worse, join them. .

    the reason that america's job creators invite immigrants in is because compared to americans they are cheap and dependable. if immigrants complain or threaten to unionize they can be deported or found dead in an abandoned truck on the highway.

    If you are against diversity, then you are agreeing to be ruled. Simple as that. Capitalism requires diversity.

    Wow so Japan is a diseased, poverty stricken hell hole then? Same with Norway.

    Real diversity is fine but forcing it for political power is wrong. Hating one group of people is wrong. Most of the European countries are still about 90% white despite flowery talk about diversity.

    No country tries to completely alter itself due to self hate and politics.

    Mass immigration has nothing to do with capitalism. One is part of an ideology, the other an economic system.

    I didn't say that anywhere.

    read the source.



    And that's discrimination purely on the name when they apply. It says nothing about the discrimination on the work floor ones they arrived.
    That happens too: https://www.forbes.com/sites/ericba...ployment-discrimination-case/?sh=56cbe78a2ea8

    It just terrible hard to prove when everybody gets promotions except some minority, that it's due to racism when it really is racism.
    Hence it's reversed and that all totally white male dominated management is just totally suspicious. And so....
    You claimed "While Your claim of "The prominent positions are dominated by white males because white males do what it takes to get put into those positions"
    Oh really? Can you prove it?



    Where did you read "entry level"?

    It does?

    The study is total bullcrap!

    Fictitious resumes with fictitious names made up by a bunch of libos seeking a particular result. How easy it would be to manipulate such a study. For the so called black names(White academics deciding what is a black name) they just come up with nonsense and for the white names make it simple like Dick or Jane Jones.

    And again they are not real people! You cite a study that does not involve real people to prove how racist America is!

    And by the way the difference in response was not even 10%. According to the activists who did the study out of 1000 resumes sent the so called white names received 250 responses and the so called black names 230 responses. That's 8%, 20/250=8%.

    So in short it is a meaningless study that does not involve real people. Was probably skewed and manipulated as hell and still showed only minor bias.

    You libos are right. Why should brown and black people have to endure such vicious hateful discrimination?

    So let's build a 2000 mile wall to protect them from racist AmeriKKKa!

    I don't agree with most things Democrats have said and done historically.

    Activists? The source says: economists at the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Chicago
    It's an academic study. It seems you don't get it.

    And 1000 resumes? The source says 83,000 resumes. And it's "out of every 1000" the result is bla bla bla... this gap grew to 50 callbacks on average.
    While 230 + 10% = 230 + 23 = 253.

    You should attempt to publish your findings with a peer reviewed write up.

    You know, that study is unethical. It is human experimentation without the knowledge or consent of the test subjects.
