Here’s an interesting one you might have missed: a 2008 study by the US census predicts that native whites (good one) will be a demographic minority by 2042. The study refers particularly to white people of Western European descent – what you would call Native Americans if you don’t count any actual Native Americans. So if you’re fresh off the potato-boat from Krakow, you’re not quite white enough to make the team. Don’t be misled though: Caucasians will still make up the largest individual ethnic group in the country when compared to Black, Asian or Hispanic population. Whites only actually become a minority when you count all other groups together in one big murky mass of non-white people who are somehow different from that uniquely unique race of Western European Caucasoids. Like it’s them against us in some weird politically correct but sort of latently racist way.

“Put simply, Obama’s more Coming to America than he is Trading Places.”

So America is turning all shades of brown and The Man knows it: considering that, it’s not a big leap to view the 2008 Obama nomination for the Democrats as a preliminary strategic move based primarily on demographic projections. Since the passing of the Voting Right Act in 1965, the Democratic Party has been the primary stockholder in the voting capital that is non-white America. Their vote represents a huge demographic group that – up until ’65 – had largely been sitting idle on the sideline of the political game like an all-star forward ready to win it for the team – if only the coach would let him play. All it took was for the big wigs to realize the potential they had been ignoring and the game could begin. So the fact that Hawaiian-born Barack Obama II – raised mostly by good ol’ white folks – is currently the first black(-ish) president of the US has more to do with strategic political planning than any alleged ideals about multiculturalism or racial emancipation. Regardless of whether or not he is a good politician, as the son of a Kenyan chief and a white woman from a middle-class family he does not represent the typical domestic black community or its political emancipation. Put simply, Obama’s more Coming to America than he is Trading Places.

So what does that mean for the near future? Well, for starters, the Republican party will hand next year’s election to Obama by the tried and tested tactic of exclusively provid- ing candidates who are either void of charisma or riddled with scandal and blunders. Obama will get four more years of economic recession for the GOP to complain about while they whip an ethnic opponent into shape to step into the ring come the next round. Who will that be, you say? I got 5-to-1 on Marco Rubio as Republican candidate in 2016. This young whippersnapper/ senator is just the ticket for a Republican party in need of change and diversity. Not to mention he has an anti-communist back-story that has ’TV drama’ written all over it: he was born to Cuban refugees (politically speaking the best kind of illegal immigrant in the kingdom of Capital).

“As white people become an increasingly rare breed in the US, it will also become increasingly clear that the entire country is owned by a 10 percent minority.”

Rubio, also dubbed the ’prince of the Tea Party,’ made senator before the age 40 thanks to what looks like a surprisingly atypical case of affirmative action. Well, maybe not that surprising considering that Hispanics are the fastest growing group in the country. Whatever the case, as white people become an increasingly rare breed in the US, it will also become increasingly clear that the entire country is owned by a 10 percent minority. Because even as Mexicans take your seat in the Senate, there’s no denying that the core of the American power structure remains the same pasty white as the house on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue – even if it has a black janitor.
