Brilliant!. Thats why Gov. Swartsanagger needs to cut the prison population in California by 27,000 inmates. One White, one Black, one legal hispanic and 26,997 illegals who Mexico doesn't want back.

Yes, the 90's were the problem and note that this was when the mass immigration also took off.

I have high hopes for Hispanics carrying the torch of western civ forward -- after they bankrupt the American welfare state, which needs bankrupting.

1) Hispanic women are better mothers, on average. (The men are another story.)

2) Hispanics don't fall for the kumbaya con. They especially don't take any crap from the negro.

3) Evolution happens faster at higher latitudes.

No, the Hispanic pattern is violent chaos followed by despotism in one form or another - either super-rich oligarchs, Aztec god-emperors, dictators like Chavez...the best hope is a Hispanamerica of brown, hobbit-like helots ruled by an Aryan masterclass (much like Brazil).

Why is everyone glorifying Brazil's so-called economic social strata. Fact is having non-white third worlders living amongst you breeds hatred and resentiment in those lower classes. Just like Sao Paolo, California is a violent place and having such a ridiculous set-up always makes violent societes with no go areas for white i ntheir own country.

We can avoid this problem immediatly by shutting borders in the first place. That is the tradegdy.

anon 22.38 is correct. Brazil is fine for the white elite up to a point, but, like California, you have a mass (much greater in Br) of violent lawless resentful black and mixed race underclass.

The whites can avoid this scene to an extent but not totally. Gated communites and private security will protect you only so far. Step off the main road, so to speak, and you're in big trouble, no matter who you are.

Most whites are working to lower middle class so the situation like that of Brazil or California would be a nightmare for the majority.

This is what the left wants.

The Aryan masterclass must be strong and vigorous enough to enforce a righteous, invulnerable rule...avoid the mistakes of the decadent, cocaine-addled elites of South America.
