The New Ethnically Ambiguous America
The Atlantic says it straight: America is beigeing. Culturally, America is already a third world country. White actors and actresses are rejected by the media, they are discriminating in favor of "ethnically ambiguous" looking employees. Like this Time cover girl. (Give it a second look: Is she a she or a he?)
I am sure this is a passing phenomenon and soon the media will return to lily-white people as is the rule in Latin America. No one is interested in the sexual intrigues of Africans or Chinese or Mulatoes, paid porn is 100% blue-eyed Nordic. Moreover, in a beigue society being White will be the ideal and whiteness will mean higher salaries and other privileges. Lighter skin is rewarded in all Latin America and even in Africa. I enjoyed its privileges while growing up in Argentina.
Being minority in a democracy surely means to lose political power. The consequence will be a change in the political system. If Latin America is any indication, the Army with some conservative politicians will declare that the ongoing corruption and immorality cannot be suffered anymore and will take over to clean the administration. And new elections will be promised. After the military takeover, some political arrangement like Mexico's Permanent Institutional Revolution will govern forever.
Anyway, the current Constitution will suffer amendments to adapt it to the new ethnic composition of the Republic. But an ethnically diverse America surely will punch less than its weight in the international political-military arena. I think the new hegemon will be Germany allied with Russia. It will be no less pro-Israel than the USA. Maybe even more.
