OK, I admit it, I once had an OKCupid account, when I was living in a southern town and knew next to no one. I went out on a few dates. By the profiles of these women, they were all “liberal” to one degree or another (Southern liberals are far more vocal about it than northerners.) As it was a Southern town, there was plenty of diversity, and lots of black people.
So I go out on a date with this young woman, about 25. She had a nose ring and everything. Apparently, this black woman was a friend of a friend and as we were hanging out at playing pool after drinks, the black woman is there so she hangs out with us for a while.
The uninterrupted stream of “hipster racist” jokes that came out of this girl’s mouth – spoken directly at this black girl while looking in her eyes – made even yours truly a bit uncomfortable.
The idea that this Republican-hating, Occupy Wall Street-going, ultra-liberal, probably gay bestie having, white woman would ever date a non-white man is laughable. Oh sure, if you asked her, she may say she “doesn’t see race” but actions speak louder than words.
I’m fairly convinced that most of the hysteria over “mudsharking” is some sort of cuckold fantasy coming from certain white men.
In 1980, nearly half of U.S. counties — 1,412 of them — had populations that were almost exclusively (98 percent or more) white. Thirty years later, only 149 counties — fewer than five percent — fit that same description. The maps below chart this transformation, decade by decade.
Oh no! The sky is falling! We are doomed!
LMAO. The hell we are!
That “rapidly declining map of White America” has a very arbitrary cut-off of 98% White. Have the number of 98% White counties drastically declined? Well, yes.
Now, after the reactionaries quit untwisting their collective underwear, you should all take your mouse and roll it over the areas that are no longer 98% White and you will find that many of them are in still in the 95% or greater range.
You see? It’s not as bad as all that. Where the decline of White America is worst is…
