Millennials in Adulthood

Pew Social Trends, March 7, 2014

Overview

The Millennial generation is forging a distinctive path into adulthood. Now ranging in age from 18 to 33, they are relatively unattached to organized politics and religion, linked by social media, burdened by debt, distrustful of people, in no rush to marry—and optimistic about the future.

They are also America’s most racially diverse generation. In all of these dimensions, they are different from today’s older generations. And in many, they are also different from older adults back when they were the age Millennials are now.

Pew Research Center surveys show that half of Millennials (50%) now describe themselves as political independents and about three-in-ten (29%) say they are not affiliated with any religion. These are at or near the highest levels of political and religious disaffiliation recorded for any generation in the quarter-century that the Pew Research Center has been polling on these topics.

At the same time, however, Millennials stand out for voting heavily Democratic and for liberal views on many political and social issues, ranging from a belief in an activist government to support for same-sex marriage and marijuana legalization. {snip}

{snip}

Millennials have also been keeping their distance from another core institution of society—marriage. Just 26% of this generation is married. When they were the age that Millennials are now, 36% of Generation X, 48% of Baby Boomers and 65% of the members of the Silent Generation were married. {snip}

Racial diversity

Millennials are the most racially diverse generation in American history, a trend driven by the large wave of Hispanic and Asian immigrants who have been coming to the U.S. for the past half century, and whose U.S.-born children are now aging into adulthood. In this realm, Millennials are a transitional generation. Some 43% of Millennial adults are non-white, the highest share of any generation. About half of newborns in America today are non-white, and the Census Bureau projects that the full U.S. population will be majority non-white sometime around 2043.

The racial makeup of today’s young adults is one of the key factors in explaining their political liberalism. But it is not the only factor. Across a range of political and ideological measures, white Millennials, while less liberal than the non-whites of their generation, are more liberal than the whites in older generations.

Low on social trust; upbeat about the nation’s future

Millennials have emerged into adulthood with low levels of social trust. In response to a long-standing social science survey question, “Generally speaking, would you say that most people can be trusted or that you can’t be too careful in dealing with people,” just 19% of Millennials say most people can be trusted, compared with 31% of Gen Xers, 37% of Silents and 40% of Boomers.

Their racial diversity may partly explain Millennials’ low levels of social trust. A 2007 Pew Research Center analysis found that minorities and low-income adults had lower levels of social trust than other groups. Based on similar findings over many years from other surveys, sociologists have theorized that people who feel vulnerable or disadvantaged for whatever reason find it riskier to trust because they’re less well-fortified to deal with the consequences of misplaced trust.

{snip}

They are also somewhat more upbeat than older adults about America’s future, with 49% of Millennials saying the country’s best years are ahead, a view held by 42% of Gen Xers, 44% of Boomers and 39% of Silents.

The relative optimism of today’s young adults stands in contrast to the views of Boomers when they were about the same age as Millennials are now. In a 1974 Gallup survey, only about half of adults under the age of 30 said they had “quite a lot” of confidence in America’s future, compared with seven-in-ten of those ages 30 and older.

{snip}

Economic hardships

Millennials are also the first in the modern era to have higher levels of student loan debt, poverty and unemployment, and lower levels of wealth and personal income than their two immediate predecessor generations (Gen Xers and Boomers) had at the same stage of their life cycles.

{snip}

At the same time, fully a third of older Millennials (ages 26 to 33) have a four-year college degree or more—making them the best-educated cohort of young adults in American history. Educational attainment is highly correlated with economic success, even more so for this generation than previous ones. In an increasingly knowledge-based economy, young adults today who do not advance beyond high school have been paying a much stiffer penalty—in terms of low wages and high unemployment—than their counterparts did one and two generations ago.

{snip}

Not only do half of all Millennials choose not to identify with either political party, just 31% say there is a great deal of difference between the Republican and Democratic parties. More people in older generations, including 58% of Silents, say there are big differences between the parties.

Even so, this generation stood out in the past two presidential elections as strikingly Democratic. According to national exit polls, the young-old partisan voting gaps in 2008 and 2012 were among the largest in the modern era, with Millennials far more supportive than older generations of Barack Obama. As Obama’s approval ratings have declined in recent years, however, Millennials have joined older adults in lowering their assessments of the president.

Yet Millennials continue to view the Democratic Party more favorably than the Republican Party. And Millennials today are still the only generation in which liberals are not significantly outnumbered by conservatives.

Social and religious views

Millennials’ liberalism is apparent in their views on a range of social issues such as same-sex marriage, interracial marriage and marijuana legalization. In all of these realms, they are more liberal than their elders. However, on some other social issues—including abortion and gun control—the views of Millennials are not much different from those of older adults.

{snip}

Millennials by age and race

{snip}

The political views of Millennials differ significantly across racial and ethnic lines. About half of white Millennials (51%) say they are political independents. The remainder divide between the Republican (24%) and Democratic (19%) parties. Among non-white Millennials, about as many (47%) say they are independent. But nearly twice as many (37%) identify as Democrats while just 9% identify as Republicans.

{snip}

White and non-white Millennials have different views on the role of government as well. On balance, white Millennials say they would prefer a smaller government that provides fewer services (52%), rather than a bigger government that provides more services (39%). Non-white Millennials lean heavily toward a bigger government: 71% say they would prefer a bigger government that provides more services, while only 21% say they would prefer a smaller government. The racial gaps are about as wide among Gen Xers and Boomers.

    I will enjoy watching you under 30 types squirm during your job hunt. YOU wanted Obama, diversity, and gay marriage, while calling guys like me every vile name you can think of.

    • Truthseeker

      I’m just past 30, so I probably get lumped in with this “Millennial” generation. Other than perhaps having a similar pop-culture frame of reference, my views on political and cultural issues have very little in common with them. Anyone who claims to be the voice of my generation likely doesn’t speak for me.

    • r j p

      I feel the same way. 1977 was the year something in this country changed and nearly everyone born after that is worthless. They don’t go to work to be as productive as possible, yet they expect rewards.

      • NM156

        Elvis died in ’77.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          I remember exactly where I was when I heard. I could bring you to the exact location of the street where I was driving at the time. Not sure why. I’m not even an Elvis fan, really. I like the Blues Rock genre, maybe that’s why. Have you been following Joe Bonamassa at all? Man, that dude rocks? YT him.

      • HamletsGhost

        Their parents, the Baby Boomers, started having kids about that time. I remember seeing TV news reports in the 1980s about the babies the Boomers were having. They supposedly were going to do a better job of raising their kids than their own parents did with them, so they enrolled their precious Caitlin and Madison in courses in Chinese at the age of 3 and hired professional clowns to come to their play-date birthday parties. The result? A generation of entitled waifs with nary a care of the real world till just now in recent years. Now they realize, alas, too late, that Obama is not a Messiah, that their degree in fluff studies is worthless, and that their debt doesn’t just go away by complaining to Mom about it.
        It’s kind of the same phenomenon you see with child stars in Hollywood. Fame and fortune at an early age, followed by drugs and despair after their marketability has waned.

        • Truth Teller

          Life for the millennial wasn’t taking Chinese courses at 3 or having play dates. I was paid a lot of attention to but what was more typical was using the TV and video games as a baby sitter. Although I was paid a lot of attention to, I spent a lot of time in my room playing the Super Nintendo and watching shows. The other time I was outside. I never had play dates. That was more of a thing for people with yuppie parents.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Unfortunately, the under 30 white boy wanna-bees make very compliant diversity poodles. I was stunned at what spineless sell-outs they were at the federal contractor where I worked.

      • ncpride

        Years of propaganda, White guilt and brainwashing. Hopefully, there are more White mothers like me out there who give our children a real sense of pride in who they are and where they come from.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          It’s funny you should say, but I almost resent my parents for not telling me how the world really was. They taught the wishful thinking form. I wished I had gotten the bare knuckles version, but that requires discipline, which kids don’t really have. I guess my parents really had no choice. The were PC hostages, too.

          • ncpride

            We have been hostages for decades. Some of us just see through the nonsense earlier than others, or actually have to deal with ‘diversity’ one on one before we see the light. At least now you know what to teach your own children when you have them…right? : )

          • AndrewInterrupted

            That train has left the station. Past 50.

          • ncpride

            Ah, I must have confused you with another regular poster. Sorry ’bout that, Andrew.

          • I feel like that sometimes, too.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            I had ultra conservative Iowa parents who were as racist as can be. They would not allow me to buy my favorite brand of PJs at the local department store because it was a “J-w Joint.” Nor was I allowed to buy anything at a certain grocery store, because it was owned by “Chi-ks.”
            K-12 school was almost one hundred percent White, with a few Chinese, three or four blacks who lived in a separate area of town called unabashedly, “n-word town.” Both these minorities were well behaved; the Chinese excelled scholastically, the blacks were dirt poor, but did not make any noise, as they do now.
            Parents reluctantly sent me off to Berkeley fearing I would become not only a Communist, but a girl of loose morals. My morals did not slip, but the racism evaporated. I became a full-on disgusting, liberal dingbat.
            Gratefully, the scales fell from my eyes upon entering clinical training in urban medicine, observing close up what blacks, when not restrained by their small numbers, really were.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Great post….!!! I dated an MD who made the same conclusions. There are distinct racial differences. But, she only spoke of it in private. No such expressions of race realism are allowed in public.

            Many posters here also have (independently) made the observation that there is a % tipping point with all non-Europeans. It seems to be a frontal lobe thing. The western Europeans got a few thousand more years of natural/artificial selection done in that region. The frontal lobe is key to western style civilization, IMHO. Probably Brodmann area 10?

            Once people without the gift of western European genes reach that fateful population % tipping point it all turns to cah-cah–and the white flight begins. It has been repeating like that for hundreds of years now.

            We had a small number of Blacks and Asians at my high school as well. We helped them as best we could. As I was one of the better athletes, I would go out of my way to pick the lone black kid first when I was picking up a team during PE. That kept the isolation off of him. He appreciated it, and was no trouble. I think he joined the military after high school.

            Today, after being persecuted regularly by the Cultural Marxist coup members in the workplace and in society, I won’t lift a finger for anyone other than a western European American. If it’s every man for himself, so be it.

            If I have my way, the Marxists will wish that they had been more careful about what they had wished for…..<;-)

          • LHathaway

            Nice sentiments, but I still think the differences are mostly culture. Don’t worry, to them, that makes me a racist too! maybe even a bigger one than you are! Probably a bigger one, if this is an outlook is new to them. Fear the new. Even if the difference are so great, they are nothing more than a little social fine tuning can fix (oh, I’m pretty sure whites are going to their own seperate country in North America, something about irreperable disrepair of an engine tuned in exactly the wrong direction for too long a time?). Perhaps the differences are as real as you think them. I think a true racist would actually be afraid these differences would disadvantage whites (as many racists before mid-century felt, or at least, that was how they tried to warn us, about the rising tide of color and the peril we faced).

          • LHathaway

            The way the world really is often sucks. We gotta try and make the best of things anyway and not let it get to us too much.

            You know, I get along, sometimes, with lefties better than I do my own kind. When I see how we are behaving and acting, I sometimes honestly say, “look what they’ve made us become”. I believe it. I do blame them. Sometimes it’s quite sad what we’ve become.

      • LHathaway

        “Not an ounce of self respect or self esteem. No national pride. No conception of history. Nothing”.

        ‘No national pride’ could be a blessing. I remember reading relatively recently that the elder president Bush claimed, “I will never apologize for American”. Even though I’m ‘conservative’ that statement almost stunned me. For my entire life (and I’m around 50, It seems I’ve been apologizing for America). I’m a relative youngster compared to Bush senior.

        Rallying around the flag for a young white man would be like conquered people in old SAmerica going on about how great their colonial masters were. Ignoring increased technology, by what measurable standard have we improved in this nation in the last 50 years? Not one that I know of – other than the diversity numbers, the most important measurement these days it seems. And we even have to apologize for not having enough diversity.

        ‘Americans’ apologized for ‘colonialism’, even That was put at the foot of white americans, even though we were a colony busting power, providing both military support and intellectual inspiration for those seeking independence. You loan money to the third world, you’re exploiting them. You don’t loan them money and you’re exploiting them.

        I remember there was a song by the rock group ‘Iron Maiden’ that was about the vietnam war. It was about the firebombing of women and children. There was a line something like “the broken bodies of those who remain, to put the finger right on you!”

        I was going to go on and on. . . about this popular view for all of our lives that America was morally backwards compared to the rest of the world, in need of apologizing, if not reprehensible. We either felt this way, or ignorantly reacted against it, by apologizing. Some of that idea may have changed, possibly after the 9/11 event. Perhaps the young see things differently.

        Who knows, maybe girls are just supposed to see Arab and other ‘third world’ men as virile. . . . without guilt, though, of course. Just as aggrieved as they should be? Girls used to be angry and indignent, anyway. Now I think the ‘dialog’ is in the same direction but quieter, and mostly supposed to keep them free from any guilt feelings? Or just flowing along as before mostly on momentum?

        At least we are improving as a nation in some sense. Maybe we do need more immigration.

    • I did not want any of it. Unfortunately, I have to grow old in an increasingly sick, stupid, and dysfunctional society.

    • Nathanwartooth

      No I didn’t.

      Also, only the smartest and most distrustful of the “millennials” can see the truth. We were given brainwashing treatments since birth. The only reason I’m here right now is some sort of miracle. If it hadn’t been for me challenging my racist uncle, I would have never made it here.

      • Martel

        I like your uncle.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          Thumbs up for righteous uncles….<;-D
          I'm one of those uncles who lobs in a truth
          grenade from time to time. Uncles can.
          Parents can't. They're being monitored
          by state minders.

      • Andross

        If it means anything, it was my Great Uncle that planted the “race realist” seeds in my consciousness. I understand where you’re coming from. I always was very resistant to my Uncle while he was alive, dismissing his views as those of an out-of-touch old man. Every day that passes I realize how right he was about the world.

    • BillMillerTime

      According to exit polls by Associated Press, only 54% of young white Americans voted for Obama in 2008. Be careful with that broad brush, my friend.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        I think that proves his diagnosis.

        • Anti

          Women vote more liberal than men. White men under 30 voted towards McCain/Romney.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            I have to believe the trend will accelerate, now that the mask has been pulled off. O’Bummer and the Chicago gangsters had a racist agenda all along.

    • Garrett Brown

      What about the under thirty men who didn’t want those things?

      • AndrewInterrupted

        I was reading that link Jared posted of that community college that excluded the white staff and it became a news story. The video clip shows the white kids talking about it at the lunch table. They had the right response, they were righteously indignant, but they didn’t turn it into a principled stand like they should have. They should have escalated.

        Those 20 something guys like yourself should have made an alliance 20 or 30 strong and demanded back their tuition, made banners, did all the things that the Left does. They should have made a dramatic spectacle, but they took their discrimination like European American men.

        Gotta stop doing that. You have to beat the Left with their own tactics. A well organized, in-your-face-protest is what I would have done. When you’re in your 20’s that’s when you go all-in, take political risks. You have plenty of time to bounce back.

    • dmxinc

      Who raised them?

      • AndrewInterrupted

        Card carrying feminist single mothers.

        • dmxinc

          So which generation is really at fault?

          I would say it is the one that was given everything in the way of a great country from birth and didn’t value it.

          That would be the generation just prior to the Baby Boomers. The ones that were teenagers in the 1950’s.

          They were of voting age in the 1960’s, but didn’t defend the ideals of our country.

          Might have been tough to do though without something like the Internet to really know what was going on.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Yes, the mid 1960s proved to be a very pivotal time–for the worse. I think it snuck up on every generation. I saw it coming earlier than most, but it’s difficult being the lone voice of reason. So my type tended to withdraw.

            Now it’s a movement—MGTOW. I was an early founder and didn’t realize it.

          • Jesse James

            Go back and look at the photos of the Civil Rights era in the South. There were tens of thousands of young whites who were out in the streets protesting integration and later busing. I remember when my Aunt Kay came home early from High School the week it integrated because of all the fighting that kept breaking out in the halls and classrooms between whites and blacks. Look at the photos of people in Boston in the streets screaming that they didn’t want blacks in their neighborhoods and schools. It is wrong to say that whites didn’t protest they did but they were just working and lower middle class whites so nobody much gave a damn what they wanted or thought. The majority of kids in the 60s and early 70s weren’t dirty hippies look at some old High School yearbooks. The boys mostly had military looking crew cuts and the girls wore nice dresses to school. The history that you think you know is a lie told by our enemies. Our enemies won and everything that you think you know is just the story they tell you to make you believe their victory was moral and inevitable.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Yes, the Boston forced busing era was quite intense. I remember that.

          • John R

            Good points. When I went to an all White Catholic high school in the 1970’s, the kids nearly always referred to blacks as “n%$ers” it was just what everyone said. And it was only natural that you avoided them. Remember that the institutions of the society were still dominated by the World War Two Generation. The Baby Boomers really didn’t start taking over until the late eighties and early nineties. And that is when our society really started to go downhill. What did the radical hippies say in the late 60’s? “We must change the system from within.” Well, that is exactly what they ended up doing.

          • dmxinc

            The fact still remains that they did not organize sufficiently or generate enough support, especially in the form of votes, to stop the dismembering of our country.

          • Jesse James

            That may or may not be true for the rest of the country but it is absolutely wrong about the South. We fought hard and we lost. The Federal government brought in troops and the FBI. We lost the right to change our own voting laws or alter voting districts without review and approval from the Federal government. We were put under a regime of what must be understood as the Second Radical Reconstruction of the South. You think this was about lost votes? The South was ground down under the military and police power of a hostile Federal government. Major multi-national corporations led by the likes of Coca-Cola threatened to destroy our economy – the same tactic they later used to destroy white Rhodesia and S. Africa. Whites in the rest of the country treated us like dirt and when they weren’t laughing at our supposed ignorance they were spitting on us for our defiance of their “benevolent” progressive utopia.

            Anyway why pick out and blame previous generations. Didn’t the current generation just re-elect a radical negro social agitator as President? What possible excuse could any white person on the planet have for not seeing the anti-white hatred that animates the Obama’s? What possible good could anyone expect to come from giving over the control of our country to communists and negroes?

          • dmxinc

            Your average White guy has no idea what is going on anywhere else in the country.

            As far as the election, immigration is the factor that has now tipped the scales.

            Whites are voting overwhelmingly against the big government, multicultural libs, but it is no longer enough.

            The same percentages in votes by Whites decades ago would have resulted in half a century of Republican rule from top to bottom.

            People seem to wake up just a hair too slowly.

          • Jesse James

            “It’s all good” as they say, I hate quarreling with fellow travelers, we almost all have more in common than we have dividing us. I am a proud Southerner though so I try and defend my section. The 2012 election concerned me seeing Virginia and Florida go for Obama. Although whites in the South vote overwhelmingly for Republicans we hold only a very narrow margin of victory and I dread the day when we lose control of our state governments. Amnesty with voting rights alone will tip Georgia over to the Democrats. We have a whole city within a city of Mexicans and other hispanic immigrants in nearby Athens GA. Not to mention the thousands of Asians being brought in by the University of Georgia. It is harder and harder for native Georgians to get into our premiere state school but they seem to always be able to make more room for foreigners, especially Asians. More and more just walking down the street reminds me of the old movie “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” – the 70s version with Donald Sutherland.

          • NC will go blue, too, with just a few more Mexicans or Damn Yankees. We were blue for a while, thanks to UNC, Duke, NC State, etc supporting dense liberal enclaves in our cities and the large percentage of minorities along the I 95 corridor. Its only a matter of time befoer these harsh winters drive more blue voters down.

            Of course, voting GOP isn’t a whole lot better. Screwed fast or slow, you’re still screwed.

          • Jesse James

            No it matters more in the South, being slowly screwed in Maine is a hell of a lot different than Memphis or Atlanta where we are surrounded by hostile non-whites both black and brown. If we can’t maintain state and local political control we may not be able to continue living here.

          • Garrett Brown

            Well stated.

          • LHathaway

            we agree that they won, but then am i just playing the victim, playing the game like it’s played now? Well, I really am pretty sure they won.

            The generational blame-game is fraught with peril. After all, who raised the worthless Boomers? The so-called “silent generation” that’s supposed to be so solid.

            Solid people would not have raised the Boomers.

        Sesame Street was the beginning of their indoctrination to the wonders of diversity.

        • itdoesnotmatter

          Sesame Street did not begin that way. The Muppets were nonracial. No one suggested that Bert and Ernie were homosexual lovers. The guest celebrities were almost all White. Bill Cosby was on once in a while.
          The narrative agenda did not push the joys of multiculturalism. It was just cute puppet action for kids with a bit of clever ironic wit thrown in to amuse parents watching, i.e., Cookie Monster hosting “Monsterpiece Theater’s” with a crazy accented version of Alistair Cook[i]e.
          Now that being Euro-White means less than nothing, it is [unwatchably] all about the Ethnic Tolerance Industry.™

          • Alexandra1973

            That Gordon dude was black, though. But yeah, Sesame Street is just more indoctrination.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            You are right. I must have zoned out when he was on screen.

    • Nathanwartooth

      If you are a guy and get married, you had better hope and pray you found a decent woman.

      The entire structure of marriage is completely anti man. Before I was 18 I was told “never marry” and told many stories about they got completely screwed over. My uncle had his wife cheat on him and she still gets half of his pension. He didn’t spend enough money on a lawyer because he thought that he couldn’t lose.

      Unless you really want to have kids, there is no reason to marry.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        That anti-male culture is spelled out pretty well by Dr. Helen Smith in her book Men On Strike. Buy a copy and pass it amongst your friends. The Cultural Marxists have targeted you and your demo. Protect yourselves. The social engineers won’t stop until there is a square peg in every round hole.

  • Truthseeker

    White and non-white Millennials have different views on the role of government as well. On balance, white Millennials say they would prefer a smaller government that provides fewer services (52%), rather than a bigger government that provides more services (39%). Non-white Millennials lean heavily toward a bigger government: 71% say they would prefer a bigger government that provides more services, while only 21% say they would prefer a smaller government.

    Meanwhile, Republican leaders still think that recruiting non-whites is the key to preserving American conservatism.

    • American conservatism? That’s a myth.

    If there is a single most damning indictment of liberalism, it is the vapidity and self-centeredness of the millennial generation. Or Generation Y, or whatever my generation is called (I’m 24).

      Yeah, that would be Y. Alexandra’s 12 year old is Z.
      But, she calls it the iGeneration which is a good term for it.

      (Vaguely) what line of work are you in?
      You could offer some good insight here.

      • DaveMed

        Medical student.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          I know Obamacare is wrecking havoc with the medical profession now.

          • DaveMed

            It’s pretty bad, and even most liberal doctors I’ve spoken to grumble about it.

            But it’ll definitely be good to be “in the system.”

          • AndrewInterrupted

            It sounds like the ones with fluffy specialties like Bariatrics were hit especially hard. Low hanging fruit.

          • DaveMed

            Bariatrics or Geriatrics?

            Yeah, I’m taking these projections strongly into consideration before deciding upon which specialty to pursue.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Bariatrics. Geriatrics is definately the way to go–all the aging boomers. Insurance companies see the obesity problem as something that could be solved at lower levels.

          • DaveMed

            Kinda thinking of another specialty (which happens to involve mostly older patients), but I don’t want to give too many details (anonymity and so on).

          • jambi19

            Think EM. Lots of third worlders are finally going to be subsidized by Obamacare. Private hospitals will be paying big salary money for EM.

          • DaveMed

            EM’s a good gig, but there’s a fairly high burnout rate for a reason – 12 (or more)-hour shifts 3 times a week, plus whatever else you’re expected to do on top of that. (That’s the official maximum, but there are often expectations that you’ll put in more time.)

            Nevertheless, the skills are invaluable, and I’m keeping it on my list.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Not just the 3 day shift, it’s also a high hazard environment–combative patients, needle sticks and such.

          • DaveMed

            Also true. I prefer to be in a more calm and controlled environment, but we’ll see…

          • itdoesnotmatter

            If you are an adrenaline junkie, EM/Trauma is the place to be. Just remember to wear protective armor and a crash helmet. It also helps to be fluent in vernacular Mexican.

          • DaveMed

            No habla Espanol, and I have no interest in learning.

            Sure does sound like an exciting area, though. I guess it depends on how my EM rotation goes.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            Dave, if the E.D. serves a rough urban area, you will feel a little bit as Colonel Moore did in the Battle of Ia Drang, early Vietnam war. It never stops.

          • jambi19

            Ya I hear you. I am kind of a work-aholic. I plan on working 5 16s a week in EM when I get out and still young. If I burnout I will prob do the hospitalist gig.

          • DaveMed

            What stage are you at in your education/training?

            Five 16s is absolutely brutal.

          • jambi19

            3rd year. Apps just got sent out. Most work weeks as an intern are 80 per week. So I keep telling myself after board certification I will just keep the schedule going actually getting paid. It’s wishful thinking I know.

          • DaveMed

            Well, if I thought I had to work residency hours for the rest of my life, I’d quit medicine right now. 🙂

            Which is why I have no interest in Ortho or General Surgery.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            I think the risk you face in medicine is the risk I faced in high technology—>foreign, cheap, drone labor. The Chinese grind out MD widgets like hula hoops.

          • DaveMed

            That risk does apply in fields like Radiology – although, a far more significant risk is the rapidly-improving ability of computers to interpret imaging tests unassisted.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            They’ve also come up with cheap, non invasive scanning technology to replace traditional colonoscopies.

          • DaveMed

            Indeed. Bear in mind, of course, that my, ahem, sociopolitical positions are motivating me to direct my training and learning in a direction that allows me to work as independently as possible.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            What is your fall-back position? Lab work?

          • DaveMed

            Not really. I think that no matter what happens, my training will be sufficient to scrape out at least a reasonable living.

            (Not that I’m particularly averse to lab work.)

          • AndrewInterrupted

            The other threat I failed to mention, which an MD friend grumbles about, is the advent of the dreaded Nurse Practitioner.

          • DaveMed

            Huge problem (on the MD end). There’s nothing I can do about it, and if I were coaching someone younger than me on career paths, I’d tell them to strongly consider NP (if they wanted to do primary care).

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Yeah, it’s not worth doing the extra years and paying the extra cash. My friend talked his daughter out of MD.

          • DaveMed

            On the other hand, it’s terribly depressing to see the demographic makeup of most medical school classes. More Whites need to be willing to push through the training. Honestly, it’s embarrassing.

            We can’t hope to build our own societies if we don’t have people willing to gain the requisite skills.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            And, of that browning all around you, how many are truly paying their own way?

          • DaveMed

            Well, everyone qualifies for loans for at least 60,000/year.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            You’re not surrounded by diversity darlings with grants & scholarships?

          • DaveMed

            I don’t think that happens as much in medical schools (especially state schools) as it does in undergraduate or other graduate programs. Mostly because the lenders know they’ll get their money back regardless of the student’s race.

            Obviously, the stats for admission (e.g., MCAT scores) are influenced by race – with basically the expected breakdown (Asians need higher scores than Whites, who need higher scores than everyone else, etc.).

          • Katherine McChesney

            There is a huge market for Geriatricians. I’m possibly changing my Primary Care Physician for a Geriatrician who comes highly recommended to me. The problem is that she is black. I plan to call to see if there other Geriatrician at that medical facility before I change.

          • DaveMed

            To be honest, the Blacks who go through medical training are generally competent. This is not to say that I wouldn’t prefer a WN society, but sometimes you need to deal with reality as it is.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            K., my PMD, recently diagnosed with stage four cancer, gave up her practice, sold it to a black woman from Kenya who trained at UCLA Medical.
            Saw her yesterday for the first time. She seems competent, but time will tell.

        • DieWulfe

          How many foreigners in your college? Percent Indian?

          • DaveMed

            I think it’s about 46%. Of those, I’d guess there are slightly fewer Indians than Oriental Asians.

          • DieWulfe

            Medical school nearby typically 50% foreigners, mostly Indians, then Chinese, and South Koreans. Rarely a black. If so, from Nigeria. Appears to be nationwide.

            As for Medical Residents in the affiliated hospital, Indian enrollment declined somewhat the past few years due to constant complaints from patients. This is a 94% White community and patients do not want to be treated by anyone but a White. Should I say trust anyone but a White, Jews included.

      • Alexandra1973

        Wikipedia indicated Generation Z was also the “iGeneration” because these kids were born with Internet and everything already being in existence.

        Back in my day, we had 8-tracks, records, and pay phones!

        They just took out the last pay phone in town several months ago….

    • slash345

      Narcissism runs rampant in people under 25 I find.

      It’s a very noticable difference between people who are around my age (31-35.)

  • r j p

    About half of white Millennials (51%) say they are political independents.

    Which means 51% of Millenials are liars.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      pot smoking “…Libertarians…” Geez what ever happened to the real Libertarians?

    • Martel

      It means implicit white identity.

      • Svigor

        Hunter Wallace over at Occidental Dissent has blogged about the data on millennials and implicit white identity. IIRC, his take-home point was that millennials don’t go in for the white guilt of the idiot moron retard Boomers and in an increasingly adverse economy, don’t want to hear non-whites’ bull.

  • Alexandra1973

    Generation X here, I guess my son would be iGeneration since he was born in 2001.

    I plan on actually educating him in how things are, not how liberals think things should be.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Is that what they settled on for Generation Z, iGeneration? I guess that makes sense.

      Who woulda thunk it that they would have to pad lamp posts down main street to accommodate the iPhone generation. They had to do that in London when texting first became the rage. Texters were walking into lamp posts.

      The big medical issue in 20 years will be texting neck.

      • Generations Z: The Last Generation sounds a bit morbid. iGeneration has that happy, “every little thing’s gonna be okay” Apple vibe.

  • Generation gap + racial demographics = White extinction

    We have our work cut out to utterly and totally destroy white youth approval of interracial mating. Start with porn, much of which promotes interracial sex. Work to get porn disapproved of as much as cigarettes. Simultaneously emphasize the point, “You want your children to look like you, don’t you?” Also, encourage white girls to get busy having white babies. Lots to do, so little time to do it.

    • Svigor

      Porn is largely segregated – you have to go looking for “interracial” (pornspeak for black males with non-black females), and indications are that black (and Jewish) males are the ones doing so.

  • The Final Solution

    Too bad WW3 doesn’t break out with Russia. I would love to see these worthless millenials thrown into the front line and see the grin wiped off their faces permanently. Except they would probably all join the Russian communists anyway. I’ve had the displeasure of working with some of these gen Y idiots – they are the laziest, stupidest, rudest group of liberal scumbags. America’s weakest generation ever. They just can’t see the connection between their leftist, democrat open-borders big govt. ideals and their hopeless employment situation. Who knows, maybe they’ll become extremely conservative after about 10 years when they see how illegals and blacks and gays have destroyed their future.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Yeah, we’ll have to dust off some middle-age Marines if that happens.

    • exlib93

      This will probably be the first generation that will never be able to retire. Without the white and Asians paying into the system, it will collapse.

    • Homo_Occidentalis

      As a disgruntled 20-something year old “Millennial” myself, I have to say that I too would enjoy seeing my narcissistic, lefty Twitter-type confrères hurled into a conventional-arms conflagration with Russia.

      I disagree, however, with your view of the Russian “communists,” as you call them. I have zero doubt that Putin’s arch-conservative Russia would be the nobler of the two combatants in any potential conflict with the decadent West.

      Think of me what you what you will for this, but I would rather face jail time as a conscientious objector than fight in a multi-culti Western military against my fellow Russian whites. All the more so when considering the fact that my country, in cowardly leftist fashion, puts its own women right on the front lines and allows them in combat roles. Such a nation has fully delegitimized itself in my view, and deserves to whither and die

      I think the best case scenario for the West is a good nuking back to the Stone Age.

      • The Final Solution

        A significant amount of Russian women fought on the Eastern front in WW2. But it was a different kind of war. Obama is determined to weaken our military with women, gays, and minorities. I agree that Russia is one of the only pro-white countries and they are looking more and more favorable every day compared to America. Thanks to Obama America is now more communist than Russia.

  • JSS

    Having just turned 31 myself I can say I really wish I had been borne in an earlier era before the world wars and political correctness. I hate the western worlds new idols and dogmas. I hate everything my country stands for in particular. I hate watching I everything I love go out with a whimper.

    • jambi19

      Would you ever fight for modern USA? To defend sodomy, live MLK’s dream, to stop global warming? God knows I wouldn’t.

      • baldowl

        Precisely. Considering what modern America is, you may consider me anti-American. It breaks my heart a little.

      • Nathanwartooth

        Both the liberals and conservatives wont fight for this country anymore and I think it was engineered that way.

        If you are apathetic about America, then you wont care when corrupt politicians destroy it.

        At the same time, I agree. America has completely changed and is now in the process of destroying its white population to replace it with third worlders. What a waste.

      • JSS

        I was actually a paratrooper for eight years. I wouldn’t trade the training and experience for anything and ironically the people I met in the army pointed me in the direction of White Nationalism. But I would never again serve this country now that I see what it truly is. It honestly seems like “Murrika” is somehow literally against everything that is right and decent in the world.

      • I’d go do it. My sergeant said I’d always go do anything, and I always would. My reason was that honest people in Zagreb deserved to feel safe in their beds at nights. If I wouldn’t do it, who would?

        That’s why God made militias….<;-)

    • Martel

      Dreaming about waking up in a different world is something the babyboomers came up with, it belongs in a John Lennon song not in the heart of a white nationalist.Such wishes are futile and a sign of apathy, a 30 year old representative of true European masculinity in the 19th century would frown upon your comment. Its of little use complaining about how the world is now, you simply have to understand your value in comparison with those who are too frightened to violate societies norms. You have detected the decay when others could not, you spoke up when others did not dare. You clearly worry to much instead of thinking about the possibilities. Read more about your ancestors, they took massive risks for fame and fortune. What would you do if America was not falling right before your eyes, drink beer in the weekend and go to work the rest of the week?

      • JSS

        You mean our ancestors got things done and the countries they built didnt just fall from the sky for them? I never knew they took risk, I thought this country colonized itself and the oceans parted for us. Anyway you don’t know anything about me so keep your advice.

        • Martel

          Fine, continue on moaning in despair. Feisty, you definitely do not need any advise, the display of sarcasm and the way you stand up for yourself is quite masculine.

            Your criticizing my sarcasm with sarcasm. Funny.

          • Martel

            Do you assume I did not notice?
            Either way, your reaction disappointed me, I will not spend time mocking someone who is supposedly a white nationalist. Have a good night.

    “The racial makeup of today’s young adults is one of the key factors in explaining their political liberalism. But it is not the only factor. Across a range of political and ideological measures, white Millennials, while less liberal than the non-whites of their generation….”

    ———————————————————
    Yet Republicans keep convincing themselves that minorities will vote Republican. It’s simple — non-white almost always equals Liberal. Minorities like the freebies that Liberals give them, and certain minorities like the lies that Liberals tell on their behalf.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Yup, the Left is clearly our mortal enemy.

      The only reason why white men show up in Democratic head counts is because they are in unions.

  • Daniel Schmuhl

    I”m going to bring uo something different from then usual here. I think one bad thing is that young people have far too much entertainment these days and lack any external social controls. Most people have self discipline issues and so if you allow them to sit around at the computer and play games during their spare time, they will.

    I enjoy playing videogames sometimes, but I see many people my age completely addicted to them and other forms of entertainment. They’re like overgrown children who have withdrawn from the adult world.

    • jambi19

      I’m in my late twenties. Whenever I go to a party all the men my age surround the TV playing video games while all the girls are dancing together. Now I just hit the bars with a wing man and dance. I am sorry I stopped playing video games the minute I turned thirteen because it’s a lot like watching saturday morning cartoons.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        I remember when Galaxian was new and exciting…Doh!!!

      • Martel

        Good, video games are useless, they do not increase your social skills, or any other relevant skill for that matter. There are better ways to get a rush then staring at a screen.

        • Truth Teller

          How is it worse than TV? At least video games improve motor skills and the ability to think fast.

          • Martel

            Its worse because its more addictive, it doesn’t continue to improve fast thinking indefinitely and its easy to waste a lot of time. It also supports a short attention span, which inhibits you from undertaking activities which support a political cause if they are time consuming and dull. Movies and certain series are more popular amongst different crowds which helps to socialize, anything else on tv is garbage.

          • Truth Teller

            Studies have shown that surgeons that play at least 3 hours of video games per week make 37% fewer errors. A virtual surgery video game would be good practice as well in addition to working with the real bodies for medical students. It’s very good for motor skills. As for fast thinking, you need that and strategizing in order to beat levels. You need to jump, duck, and perform moves very quickly. It can also make people less depressed and mentally ill. It’s a good way to relieve stress.

          • Martel

            Three hours a week is not too bad. Surgeons have a good reason to do so, but I’m no surgeon. They are usually on call or on standby with little to do as well. A surgeon also makes tons of money, something those with lower income have to compensate by doing something interesting. Playing WOW or COD 8 hours a week is a different ballgame.

          • Truth Teller

            Although for people without a social life to begin with, playing WOW or COD 8 hours a week isn’t really harming them but just a way to pass the time.

          • Martel

            I advise against it for white nationalists and associates. Building social skills requires social interaction. As a white nationalist social skills are of greater necessity due to the controversy surrounding this political movement. Studying genetics or hanging out at a bar or a finer establishment is the way to pass time.

    • Garrett Brown

      It makes people very socially awkward and out of touch with reality. I myself have found my social skills slipping if I play games too much.

      I was fighting this stuff in the halls of Congress probably when I was your age.

      Two decades have passed and look where we are.

      The average White American guy just doesn’t care enough to do anything. They didn’t care enough in the ’50s, 60’s, 70’s and they don’t care enough now.

      I’m not certain why, but this mass immigration plan foisted on America is unique in history.

      Perhaps your average person is not equipped with enough of a defense mechanism to combat it.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      This isn’t fair. You’re blaming the wrong people. The average white American never wanted massive 3rd world immigration and was always opposed to it. It was imposed on them, against their wishes, by white race traitors and Jewish liberals. Massive 3rd world immigration is a policy without democratic mandate, passed by a totalitarian government that harbors an ideologically motivated ethnic hatred of the American founding population.

    Makes sense for the non whites of my generation, they are socialist to the bone. I would break this up even more tho 18 to 24 and 25 to 33. I fall in the latter age range and i can tell you there is a huge difference in how we think compared to the younger ones. The pew anything is the biggest load ever, they skew things more then any other poll group. Back to my point the 18 to 24 are just lost, schools started the lib bs prob late 90s by that time most of the 25 to 33 were either in hs or had parents who didnt buy the liberal game. What the big change was schools started to tell the parents this is what were gonna do, and to fit in they bought it. I went back to my hs for to see the only conservative teacher i had, me being from texas and moving to ny he was one of the few cool ppl that never made jokes or bought into the liberal bs. I had lunch with him and he told me about the new diversity program they had in place, this is a private school no less. I finished eating walked into the presidents office and said i wont give you a dime until you get rid of this crap. he did not like what i said, but thats why my generation is so screwed. Schools went from teaching hard work and values to everyone is equal. Also i dont think the hispanic number is correct because of the amount of castizos in our society

        • DieWulfe

          “5th grade i have a texas accent so the libs made me go to speech class.”

          It’s OK for liberals to discriminate against a White Southerner’s accent, but a New York accent is OK by them.

            It is what it is man im over it, i wasn’t happy with it at the time, but i learned from it. Liberals are something else in the long run.

            I traveled heavily throughout the south doing field service. Because I’m a native New Englander, I had the accent. I was jabbed for it–the standard “Yankee” shots, but it was different for me. The “Yankee” jabs were standard knee-jerks. Then I was judged solely on my character and my expertise. Almost put on a pedestal. I have mostly found memories of southerners and the South.

            A very candid black man told me once that he’d rather live in the South. He said: “At least there they stab you in the front”.

    Sounds like the millennials are just a brainwashed generation of dumb White kids, and racist minorities. I don’t find anything surprising about this study at all. So, they are optimistic about the future, huh? Well, of course they are: The “magic negroes” among them are living in “N-Word Heaven” after all, and have society kissing their you know what, and they have all those millennial White chicks to screw after all. Has any other generation of Africans had it so good? Ditto for the mestizo millennials. Must be nice getting to sneak into someone else’s country and have the natives support your useless brown azz, huh? As to the White millenials, I guess living with your White liberal baby boomer parents, sleeping all day, partying all night, and lecturing mom and dad on the wonders of America’s growing diversity, while you don’t have to support yourself, or anyone else, isn’t so bad, either, huh? OK. I’m done. Sorry to get long winded, people, but this was just too much BS for me to take!

      European Millennials are a major force behind the political changes in Europe. The Freedom party by Geert Wilders dominates highschool polls nearly every year I have seen them discussed. It is similar in other European countries where the growth is largely due to young Europeans understanding what diversity means. Another statistic from the Netherlands showed that the more programs teachers force upon Dutch students with a ‘diversity is great’ message, the greater the resentment against diversity.America will follow.

        That’s good news. Thanks.

        • Martel

          The good news is called evolution. Our brains are hardwired towards favoring our own kind and distrusting others, a notion defended by this article,the reaction against this multicultural madness cannot be stopped.

          • MBlanc46

            That it’s happening in what is considered to be one of the most “liberal” countries and one of my favorite places in the world is especially gratifying.

          • Martel

            It is gratifying. As I’m familiar with American leftists who point to Europe to remind fellow Americans of how wonderful their utopia could be, I am looking forward to their coming depression when they no longer have anything to point too.

        If Europe removes it’s non-white immigrants and rejects western liberalism then I’m getting on the first flight out of this american hell hole and I’m coming back home!

        I’ll live a life of poverty if I have to. I’d be happier poor and homogenous than wealthy and diverse.

        I’d take that in a heart beat.

      Its starting to change, the whites in my generation are seeing how bad the pro minority programs are

      • slash345

        The libs just have to turn around and start enacting polices and programs that cater to whites and it’ll change their feelings.

        Emotions are easy to control it seems.

        • TXCriollo

          Ya but think about it, thats gonna cause a hell storm. They start pulling from the non whites and give it to the whites riots will happen

      • John R

        God, I hope so! And, I must admit, that this problem was after all started by my generation, and the one before. So I can’t trash talk the millennials too bad. And, for all my anger at the young people today, I feel sorry that they will have to pick up the tab for problems that they did not create.

  • Martel

    ” About half of white Millennials (51%) say they are political independents. The remainder divide between the Republican (24%)”

    Over 75% supports implicit white causes. Over 75% feels uncomfortable in a movement which caters to negroes and Hispanics. And this is under a propaganda campaign more advanced and costly then humankind has ever seen.

    if you want to hear a phony hype a book and take staged calls hyping same, listen to rush limpballs. if you want to hear an actual radio talk show listen to michael savage. user onlythebest on youtube hosts michael’s shows. limbaugh used to be real (20 years ago). sad that he went so down hill.

    They’re broke, scared of other people, and are aware of corrupt politics. Yet they somehow think things will get better… this is why we are screwed.

    • Truth Teller

      As we have seen in history, bad times often pass. The Great Depression passed, as did World War 1 and World War 2. Why should it be so different this time? It’s better to have hope for the future. If you have no hope, what’s the point of trying?

      • Garrett Brown

        Anti whites like you think the world will be ok without whites. I however have a brain.

        • Truth Teller

          I never said that. It’s just that we are so used to exaggerated threats and doom and gloom propaganda that it doesn’t have an effect on us I will just continue to roll my eyes at the way people are acting now knowing one day things will get better in a lot of ways. It’s just a matter of waiting for irrationalism to fade after a bunch of trial and error.

  • Garrett Brown

    I didn’t even know we were referred as “millennials”.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      I think “…millennials…” are Gen Y, who reached adulthood at the turn of the millennium. And Gen Z, what Alexandra is coining the iGeneration, were born after the millennium change. I think.

    They could pick up a newspaper, but almost all newspapers said the same thing. They could turn on the TV, but all three networks said the same thing: Blacks are held down by evil bigoted whites, and the only decent position for any right-thinking person is to support Civil Rights as the all-American, Christian thing to do.

  • HamletsGhost

    Nothing really funny about it at all. It’s just like a weapon like a knife: It has a dangerous end and a safe end. It’s the reason weapons are used.
