The Future of the White Minority, III

Dizzy (comments, again) is in fits because I attribute group norms to, um, groups.

But maybe she could phrase it in a way that doesn't sound so dumb. In her own words:

And Latin America's runaway crime problem and rampant corruption has nothing to do with the fact that it is filled with Latin Americans. You just did it again!

Here is what I wrote:

You ask what the end game [of America's immigrant invasion] will look like, and I don't honestly know. At the optimistic end, I would say that a country full of Latin Americans will probably look a lot like . . . Latin America. Whatever its charm, Latin America is different in ways both large (rampant corruption, grinding poverty, runaway crime, coup d' etat) and small (cars parked on the lawns) that will not be to our liking.

Dizzy's alternative hypothesis, as I understand it, is that the Latino horde will easily assimilate to Anglo-Protestant norms of law and order once they come north. Let's see how that's working out. From the LA Weekly:

The Town the Law Forgot

An L.A. ’burb is mired in gangs, cartels and south-of-the-border-style politics

By Jeffrey Anderson

Cudahy resembles a Mexican border town more than it does a Los Angeles suburb. Entrenched gangs and Mexican drug trafficking have trapped working-class legal and illegal immigrants in a cycle of violence and fear, in a city where less than a quarter of the 28,000 residents are eligible to vote. An uneducated city council, a deeply troubled police force imported from Maywood two towns over, and the raw power of the 18th Street Gang — a complex criminal organization with a knack for setting up business fronts and obscuring underground drug activity — make Cudahy residents seem like hostages in their own city...

With its narrow, deep lots — the result of an agricultural past that is long gone — its glut of rundown apartment buildings and its lack of economic growth, Cudahy offers a good example of how Mexican drug cartels, the prison-based Mexican mafia and gangs like 18th Street are attracted to the Los Angeles–adjacent industrial sprawl populated by poor immigrants.

(Hat tip: Steve Sailer.)

Reality bites again.

Update: Age of Treason has the goods.

Apropos your jousts with liberals here is a definition of racist to keep in mind.

More on the unaccounted costs of a burgeoning Latino horde. It includes a special message at the end for moralizers like Spungen.
