Their women grow up to be chain smoking, lager drinking slags, and the men usually become violent, unpredictable drug-using criminals. Not only that, but they are breeding uncontrollably, often race-mixing in the process. I view them as unfit for life in the 21st century, these people are on the same level as the 'thug-life' blacks in America's ghettos.
    Well, these feral youths are the product of 20-25 years of uninterrupted Americanisation from the likes of MTV etc. They have become 'ghettoised', meaning they copy behaviour associated with the poorest black Americans. The Americans have a word for these types of whites: Wiggers. The only lasting solution would be to impose harsh military discipline and corporal punishment when necessary, but no government would ever dare.

    My Mother was a nurse in a ward in London. A Cockney man in the British Military was a patient. He had lost his legs while in service. She said when he awoke after surgery and learned of his fate he looked down to where his feet used to be and said "Well I guess that takes care of my corns".
    These are the men Britain has been shitting on.
    And now they invite some Paki in to shit on them as well.
    I don't care how bad their behavior gets.
    It is not the working class whose behavior needs defending.

    Why the White Working Class is Alienated, Pessimistic

    Why the white working class is alienated, pessimistic
    By Ronald Brownstein
    National Journal

    Almost no one noticed, but around George W. Bush's reelection in 2004, the nation crossed a demographic milestone.

    From Revolutionary days through 2004, a majority of Americans fit two criteria. They were white. And they concluded their education before obtaining a four-year college degree. In the American mosaic, that vast white working class was the largest piece, from the yeoman farmer to the welder on the assembly line. Even as late as the 1990 census, whites without a college degree represented more than three-fifths of adults.

    But as the country grew more diverse and better educated, the white working-class share of the adult population slipped to just under 50 percent in the Census Bureau's 2005 American Community Survey. That number has since fallen below 48 percent.

    The demographic eclipse of the white working class is likely an irreversible trend as the United States reconfigures itself yet again as a "world nation" reinvigorated by rising education levels and kaleidoscopic diversity. That emerging America will create opportunities (such as the links that our new immigrants will provide to emerging markets around the globe) and face challenges (including improving high school and college graduation rates for the minority young people who will provide tomorrow's workforce).


    Still, amid all of this change, whites without a four-year college degree remain the largest demographic bloc in the workforce. College-educated whites make up about one-fifth of the adult population, while minorities account for a little under one-third. The picture is changing, but whites who have not completed college remain the backbone of many, if not most, communities and workplaces across the country.

    They are also, polls consistently tell us, the most pessimistic and alienated group in American society.


    The latest measure of this discontent came in a thoughtful national survey on economic opportunity released last week by the Pew Charitable Trusts' Economic Mobility Project. If numbers could scream, they would probably sound like the poll's results among working-class whites.

    One question asked respondents whether they expected to be better off economically in 10 years than they are today. Two-thirds of blacks and Hispanics said yes, as did 55 percent of college-educated whites; just 44 percent of noncollege whites agreed. Asked if they were better off than their parents were at the same age, about three-fifths of college-educated whites, African-Americans, and Hispanics said they were. But blue-collar whites divided narrowly, with 52 percent saying yes and a head-turning 43 percent saying no. (The survey, conducted from March 24 through 29, surveyed 2,000 adults and has a margin of error of ±3.4 percent.)

    What makes these results especially striking is that minorities were as likely as blue-collar whites to report that they have been hurt by the recession. The actual unemployment rate is considerably higher among blacks and Hispanics than among blue-collar whites, much less college-educated whites.


    Yet, minorities were more optimistic about the next generation than either group of whites, the survey found. In the most telling result, 63 percent of African-Americans and 54 percent of Hispanics said they expected their children to exceed their standard of living. Even college-educated whites are less optimistic (only about two-fifths agree). But the noncollege whites are the gloomiest: Just one-third of them think their kids will live better than they do; an equal number think their children won't even match their living standard. No other group is nearly that negative.

    This worry is hardly irrational. As Massachusetts Institute of Technology economists Frank Levy and Tom Kochan report in a new paper, the average high-school-educated, middle-aged man earns almost 10 percent less than his counterpart did in 1980. Minorities haven't been exempt from that trend: In fact, high-school-educated minority men have experienced even slower wage growth than their white counterparts over the past two decades, calculates Larry Mishel, president of the liberal Economic Policy Institute.

    But for minorities, that squeeze has been partially offset by the sense that possibilities closed to their parents are becoming available to them as discrimination wanes. "The distinction is, these blue-collar whites see opportunities for people like them shrinking, whereas the African-Americans [and Hispanics] feel there are a set of long-term opportunities that are opening to them that were previously closed on the basis of race or ethnicity," said Mark Mellman, a Democratic pollster who helped conduct the Pew survey.


    By contrast, although it is difficult to precisely quantify, the sense of being eclipsed demographically is almost certainly compounding the white working class's fear of losing ground economically. That huge bloc of Americans increasingly feels itself left behind—and lacks faith that either government or business cares much about its plight. Under these pressures, noncollege whites are now experiencing rates of out-of-wedlock birth and single parenthood approaching the levels that triggered worries about the black family a generation ago. Alarm bells should be ringing now about the social and economic trends in the battered white working class and the piercing cry of distress rising from this latest survey.

    I think this recession could turn out to be a real blessing. The hardship facing working class white people, will hopefully alert them to the fact that America has changed and the system is now against them.

    In England they have been bought of by successive Labour governments to the point they vote for them no matter how many non whites they bring in just as long as they sign the social security checks and no one makes them work. Its a sad state and keep are country in Bondage. I wish we would go broke and had to stop paying people to sit around then they would start to use their eyes and their votes.
