Why Don’t White Voters Elect Minority Reps to Congress?

Janie Boschma, National Journal, January 30, 2015

It’s an enduring contrast in Congress: Minority legislators are much less likely to represent districts where whites constitute a majority of the population than whites are to hold districts where racial minorities comprise the majority.

In the new Congress, white representatives hold 44 of the 117 House seats where minorities equal a majority of the population, a Next America analysis has found. That’s 38 percent.

By contrast, minority lawmakers represent only 15 of the 318 districts where whites represent a majority of the population. That’s just 5 percent.

That vast difference underscores the continued limits on the progress of minorities in the House, even as their overall numbers increase within the United States. All 11 of the incoming minority freshmen represent districts with a high proportion of minorities, often including sizable Latino populations.

Experts say many factors contribute to this imbalance. One is that minority politicians themselves often feel most comfortable seeking congressional seats in districts with sizable minority populations. The power of incumbency reinforces that inclination. As long as incumbents, most of whom today are white, can prove they are responsive to their constituents and win the trust and support of their minority communities, minority politicians often see little opening to launch a challenge. As more white incumbents eventually retire, Arturo Vargas, executive director of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, says he expects nonwhite politicians to take advantage of those opportunities, especially in majority-minority districts.

The evidence suggests it may be easier for minority Republicans to attract support from white voters than it is for minority Democrats. Only 14 of the 88 minority members in the House are Republicans. But they are eight of the 15 minority House members holding majority white seats. They especially have an edge in districts that are at least 70 percent white. Of those eight seats held by minority Republicans, six are in districts that are 70 percent or more white.

Vargas said the Republican Party has done a considerably better job than Democrats at recruiting and supporting minority candidates in mostly white districts, using a strategy that emphasizes what Vargas calls “crossover appeal”–their ability to appeal to voters outside their demographic. Republicans also tend to fare better in majority-white districts in general, securing 199 of 263 such districts in the new House, as a recent Next America analysis shows.

    “Why Don’t White Voters Elect Minority Reps to Congress?”

    Is this a trick question?

    Whites make decisions based on evidence and minorities make decisions based on race.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      This is the sort of question only white people are asked. That is, no one cares that the exact same phenomenon exists within black communities, and the media will applaud when such phenomenon expands there. Hardly anyone will mention the black lawmakers’ ethnocentrism (e.g., the Congressional Black Caucus’ discriminatory policy toward non-black members); nor will hardly anyone

      • Lion’s Mane

        It’s an anti-white loaded question. It’s “racism” against white people. It’s malicious. It’s meant to foster White Guilt. And it reveals that our putative leaders in the press are hostile to us.

        • Anglokraut

          Yes, it’s SOP for the media to use loaded questions–for example “Have you stopped beating your wife yet? Yes or No.”

          • Raymond Kidwell

            I notice entry level jobs doing this now. You have to answer questions like “how lazy are you 1) very 2) slightly” or some similar insult.

      • candide

        Blacks are truly to be pitied. Of what other people could it be said that they were better off, happier, etc. as slaves?

        • Charles Martel

          Please! No black person ever said that.

          • Anglokraut

            Eh, chances are that at least one did–Law of Large Numbers, and all.

          • candide

            True. But I say it and know it is true. Which is worse: a slave Plantation with food and shelter, or a crack house in Camden, NJ, and four bastard children all on heroin; no husband, no job, no nuttin’?

          • Charles Martel

            Gotta agree with you there.

          • bilderbuster

            Camden, NJ doesn’t involve any work or responsibility so the answer should be obvious.

          • ShermanTMcCoy

            Please, “black” and “person” constitutes an oxymoron.

    • candide

      I get your point, but please don’t assume that more than a small number of Americans of any race is intelligent enough to make rational decisions.

    Question: *Why Don’t White Voters Elect Minority Reps to Congress?”

    Answer: White Voters tend to have higher IQ’s

  • Bryce Armstrong

    “Why don’t white voters elect minorities”

    Why do minorities only elect corrupt representatives?

    • MikeofAges

      They’re lousy at covering their tracks. That’s all. Does anyone really believe that minority officeholders are that much more corrupt that white politicians? Then there’s that by now age old question: Why don’t older women who hold office have so many scandals? My answer is, apart from the likelihood that no one wants to mention their same-sex affairs and paid hookups with buff young men, that there is no law against owning a thousand pairs of shoes or 500 high priced purses. These people are all politicians. Get it? Politicians.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      Because most minorities are corrupt. It’s like the old adage about never getting into a fight with a small person- they don’t fight fair (because no fight is fair to them).

      • DAWNOFNEWDAY

        You’re getting a growing number of ‘white conservatives’ that are spouting the ‘race doesn’t exist, it’s about character’ nonsense. They say “why I like Herman Cain!” or “why I like Ben carson” despite the fact many of these nonwhite candidates get voted in or make money ONLY by saying things whites are too afraid to. We’ve had six years of anti-white Marxist rule and these conservatives STILL don’t get it.

        • bilderbuster

          Romney has a Black grandson, his running mate Paul Ryan dated Black women and his brother married one, Mitch McConnell has a Korean wife, and Boehner has a Black son in law.
          Their families are like DeBlasio Light.

  • Seniorsquadldr

    Easy, they are haters of white people. They are dedicated to the destruction of America. The only white who votes for a minority candidate is a self-loathing, guilty, white, fool.

  • Anglokraut

    I’m sure this is part of a two-part investigation. Look for: “Why don’t Non-White Voters Elect White Reps to Congress?” next week.

  • cherrie greenbaum123

    You mean we aren’t allowed to want people in office who look like us?

    • Bryce Armstrong

      Were also not supposed to want people who’ll look after our best interests.

      • Anglokraut

        If members of Congress looked after the interest of White People, I highly doubt we would be in this post-1965 mess.

        • bilderbuster

          They must be looking after someone’s best interest or else why would Jewish people be the largest donors to both parties?

  • dd121

    Why exactly is it that you’re surprised?

    • TruthBeTold

      It’s meant to be another dig at ‘racist white folk’ who refused to vote for non-whites.

      The hope is by making them question why they vote white they might then vote non-white.

      • HJ11

        Never vote non-White. Always vote for White genes.

        • DAWNOFNEWDAY

          I won’t for a nonwhite even if you forced me to

  • dd121

    Or…. people who vote for blacks are enlightened but people who vote for whites are racist? I think fewer people all the time are buying this.

  • TomIron361

    By contrast, minority lawmakers represent only 15 of the 318 districts where whites represent a majority of the population. That’s just 5 percent.
    ________________________________________________________________
    Bunch of lousy liberal electing that 5%.

  • TruthBeTold

    Another attempt to guilt-trip whites into voting for people who don’t share their views or support their interests.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    We don’t elect “minority” reps because we instinctively know most of them are basically mentally retarded, like my Rep. Hank Johnson, of Georgia’s 4th district. The GOP-controlled legislature, when redrawing the lines, stopped only 500 feet short of including my neighborhood in Tom Price’s district, Georgia’s 6th district, which is a very white Republican district. If I need to contact a congressman, I contact Tom Price. with the district line only 500 feet from the front door, there’s no reason not to consider him my congressman.

    • IstvanIN

      Not to mention anti-White in their hearts.

    • Dave West

      From Wikipedia:
      In 2009, Johnson demanded censure of Rep. Joe Wilson following Wilson’s “you lie” exclamation during President Obama’s speech, delivered to a joint session of the 111th United States Congress on September 9, 2009, concerning his plan for health care reform; Congressman Johnson argued that the comment had an unseen racial undertone and that, if Wilson was not formally rebuked, “we will have people with white hoods running through the countryside again.”

      At least my black representative was Allen West!

      • Samuel Hathaway

        On the other end of the district for Hank Johnson, we have googly-eyed, neandrathals with their knuckles dragging the ground stealing watermelons and joy riding in their jacked up 1975 cadillacs with reverse-rotating shiney rims.

        • Dave West

          Sounds like a fitting group of people for a lawn-jockey like good old Hank to represent!

    • It is pretty well understood among the ranks of people who are or were in Congress that if you represent a district next to one of these short bus black gerrymanders, then you and your staff are going to be doing a lot of work for the people of that district, because those people will elect a total slug.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        YEAH, we got a slug alright in Hank boy. All our local officials are Republicans though… the 6th district boundary that is just a short walk down the sidewalk, but it was disappointing to see that we didnt get the good fortune of being included in that district. Tom Price is the congressman from the 6th, and was an orthopaedic surgeon, so we know he’s a really good guy.

  • newscomments70

    I would have voted for Allen West over some effete white liberal male. I don’t live in Florida though.

    • HJ11

      Then, you are not truly for White interests if you would have voted for Allen West.

      West does not have White genes. Helping him in any way harms White genes in the long run.

      • newscomments70

        Allen West, from what I know about him in his interviews, is a race realist. He is more conservative than Jeb Bush and the other neo-cons. I would not only vote for him against a white liberal, I would vote for him against a white neo-con. I understand your feelings, but I would vote for a black true conservative, if offered no other choice.

        • HJ11

          In the long view of history–it is genes that matter–not political positions. Allen West is Black. He will never be White. He can never be White. Jeb Bush is non-White inside. There are more than two possible candidates. Vote for the Whitest ones.

          • newscomments70

            “Jeb Bush is non-White inside.” Isn’t that the truth. I will give that a thought, thanks.

          • TCA

            How does one calculate relative amounts of Whiteness, Oreos verses Whiggers? I agree that West is better than Bush, and I dont see how it advances my Race to vote for a White man who will almost certainly betray it, instead of a Negro who promises not to. I dont think it’s fair to state categorically that a vote for West is a vote against White interests, when it may be the lesser of two evils.

          • HJ11

            We are in eternal gene wars. This is nature’s way. Non-Whites with their non-White genes are a danger to our White genes simply because they can pollute our White gene pool and destroy White genes. No evil or bad intent is required on their part, anymore than an evil intent of germs is required for them to hurt us.

            In the eternal gene wars, we are at most danger from those who can breed with us.

            Anything we Whites do to help non-Whites survive or advance over us or get a leg up on us will,in the long run, harm us.

            Again, there will be many choices during the election. Vote for the Whitest candidate (“Whitest” here means genetically the Whitest first and then the one who seems to be the most awakened and who is not a self-hater such as Bush.)

          • Irish

            Well all of Ted Kennedy’s people we’re from the same Northern European Isle mine were. And he ‘s the snake that brought the 1965 “Family reunification act” (or as I call it the scene of the crime) to the floor, promising it wouldn’t change the ethic balance in this country. .Not to mention every wealth transfer from Whites to Non-Whites program you can think of..Yeah no, the guy that beat Allen West is big time liberal named Patrick Murphy. I live just south of that district..I would not have thought twice about voting for West, regret very much I couldn’t. ..

          • HJ11

            The Knnedy’s produce White children. West can not do that. In the long view of existence, it is those who produce White children who will help save us from extinction.

          • Irish

            If you think any of the Kennedy’s offspring are going to make common cause with WN’s at some point, you don’t know the Kennedy’s. ..

          • HJ11

            If you think non-White genes are good for Whites, you don’t know genes.

          • meanqueen

            Here’s how genes matter: don’t have sex and breed with your black conservative politicians. Otherwise, I’d vote for them over bad white leftists any day.

          • HJ11

            Huh?

  • Chip Carver

    Think of the evil behind even asking such ridiculous questions. Then think of the true evil that would have to be behind working in a subversive, secretive manner, behind the scenes, to create immigration laws to replace whites. Think about that, that’s why we’re seeing these types of articles and questions, most of them put forth tongue in cheek (which they will never admit).

  • Lion’s Mane

    Why don’t the Japanese appoint a Caucasian citizen Prime Minister of Japan?

    • Ultimate187

      Japan is 98% homogenous. They don’t have any white people.

  • Lion’s Mane

    Why don’t we just separate the races so that we can live more natural and unencumbered lives?

    • MooTieFighter

      It would be better for us, but blacks would quickly sink into oblivion. They realize this, as they deny it with the same breath. Thus your dilemma.

  • Who Me?

    “Why don’t white voters elect minority reps to Congress?”
    ————————
    Simple. Look up Hank Johnson. “Guam will tip over.”

    • Samuel Hathaway

      What an embarrassment….. he’s my congressman, but only by 500 feet from the next district over… the GOP legislature just about swept my neighborhood into a very white GOP district, the 6th, but it seems that famous gaffe about Guam made Johnson and household name. As they say, a rep. is a reflection of the people they represent, and trust me, Hank Johnson, dumb as a stump, truly reflects those who elected him.

      Last November, I noticed that H. Johnson had no GOP opposition on the ballot. I voted for my cat, Mittens as a write in…. Mittens, the congressman… no scandal, no corruption.

      • Who Me?

        If I were living in that district, Mittens would have gotten my vote, too.

      • throttler

        Your cat would have made a much better president than Obamanation, too.

        • Samuel Hathaway

          The cat, being a cat, would be far superior in morals, honesty, temperament and good style and taste than the First Mulatto In Chief.

  • Lion’s Mane

    This simple and straightforward answer is that it is unnatural and unwise to place someone not of your own kind as leader over you.

    • HJ11

      Yup. Vote for Whites because we share White genes with them and genes are thicker than political positions.

  • Because Planet of the Apes doesn’t need to become reality.

  • JustJeff

    Because black congresscritters are world class jackasses?

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    Only stupid white vote minorities to office and that shows that they are brainwashed and betraying their race.

    • HJ11

      Right. Too many Whites vote against their own best interests. And, ultimately, best interests for Whites means voting for those with White genes.

    “Why Don’t Minority Voters Elect White Reps to Congress?”

    • Atheist Realist

      Steve Cohen represents a black district, although that’s the exception that proves the rule

      • IstvanIN

        Was he the guy who used photos of blacks in his campaign materials but no photos of himself?

        • WoodyBBad

          With a name like Cohen, I doubt he’s fooling anyone about his ethnicity.

          • IstvanIN

            I know a black Cohen family, and they aren’t Jewish.

          • Sick of it

            Then Cohen would be their “slave name” so to speak.

        • meanqueen

          If he’s who I’m thinking of, then he was extremely clever to do that. Hey, he won based on those campaign material photos.

  • phillyguy

    I would rather have a white politician lie and steal our hard earned tax money than a black politician.

  • Dave West

    I might be the only Amren reader to vote for a black politician.

    I voted for Allen West in the 2010 election, he might be about the only black politician I have any respect for. However I would have preferred a white candidate, but at least Allen West can say things that would force a white congressmen to resign or issue the typical “I didn’t mean to offend anyone, I’m not a racist,” apology

    • Samuel Hathaway

      You see, this is what I don;t like about Allen West. Sure, he’s got some good votes in /congress, but even he plays on the black/white doublestandard and he knows that because he’s black, he can get away with it. Maybe we need to hear what he has to say because whites won’t say it, but still, he’s not calling out the doublestandard so that whites can feel free to say the same thing.

    • I don’t have much of a problem with him. After all, he did give AR a little publicity lately.

      My big problem is with all the white cons who made him out as some sort of great black red team hope.

      That and he really ought to quit moaping about his district being redrawn. From what I understand, the Florida legislature had no personal grind against him; they just had to divide Florida up into 27 equal parts to yield as many Republicans as possible, and doing so necessarily left him out.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    “In the new Congress, white representatives hold 44 of the 117 House seats where minorities equal a majority of the population, a Next America analysis has found. That’s 38 percent.”

    The article’s analysis pits all non-whites vs. whites. But if you were to break down the figures above there’s a good chance that in the districts where whites are a minority in comparison to all non-whites, whites are still the majority race. For example, the district is 40% white and 60% non-white. But if you break the district down by group it’s 40% white, 30% black, 20% Hispanic, 5% Asian, 5% other/mixed. Minorities outnumber whites, but since whites are the majority race and most race’s vote for their own — whites win. No reason to feel guilty about that.

    The other more obvious explanation for why whites win Congressional seats in majority-minority districts at a higher rate than minorities winning seats in white-majority districts is that all voting statistics show that whites turn out to vote in far greater numbers than non-whites for non-Presidential elections. That’s why Obama won both Presidential elections, but white Republicans dominated the two midterm elections. It’s also why 70% black Ferguson has a white mayor and majority white city council. Voting statistics show that less than 6% of Ferguson’s black residents voted in their elections. Whites should not feel guilty about taking elections more seriously than non-whites.

  • DonReynolds

    That’s easy.
    One of the serious disconnects in this country.
    White people endeavor to be “fair”, whereas blacks and hispanics try to “win”.
    It is easier for you to win, when no one else knows it is a race.
    Whites refuse to admit there is a conflict, no matter how loudly they are told that fact by angry blacks and hispanics……and they certainly do not admit it is a matter of survival.

    • Lion’s Mane

      Exactly. Whites refuse to diagnose the disease because they insist that there is no disease. It’s been this way since Thomas Jefferson’s time. Jefferson mentions this in this Autobiography. Speaking of the necessity of deporting the slaves, Jefferson wrote:

      “The principles of the amendment however were agreed on, that is to say, the freedom of all born after a certain day, and deportation at a proper age. But it was found that the public mind would not yet bear the proposition, nor will it bear it even at this day.”

      Has anything really changed?

        I wish I could travel back in time to the 1860’s and the 1790’s and present Abe Lincoln and the founding fathers with a picture of the Kenyan, a copy of Jared Taylor’s recent article on Eric Holder, and a video of the gentile giant riots.

            There’s a theory that Thomas Paine wrote portions of the Declaration.

        • Rhialto

          That gives me an idea for an SF story:
          A Black from 2150, time travels to the present, and tries to convince Blacks that destroying normal White men will cause the destruction of all Blacks. He explains that Oriental, Muslim, Indian, and other non-White group will then take over the World, and will proceed to painfully exterminate or enslave (after neutering) all people with African ancestry. The Blacks will ignore him, and neo-Nazis will kill him.

  • Ringo Lennon

    Man, I’m seeing a lot of blacks.

  • Atheist Realist

    i don’t think whites are inherently going to vote against a black or latino politician because of there race but because a lot of them are demagogues. Someone like Sanford Bishop of GA or Henry Cuellar of TX are people I would vote for but for every one of them, there are a bunch of Maxine Waters and Raul Grijalvas.

  • Lion’s Mane

    America’s leadership is not neutral, nor is it ‘colorblind.’ We’ve been lied to. It is clearly anti-white, and articles like this demonstrate that fact. They have no intention of letting the people govern themselves. It’s time to move beyond the outdated semantic games of “liberal” vs. “conservative” and create a new paradigm.

  • TooOldAndToughToEat

    One issue is simply ethnic turnover and differing age distribution among ethnic groups. If a district used to be 85% white and is now only 45% white, the previous white incumbents and political machine will hold on for a while. The average representative is pushing 60, but minority populations are much younger, which affects both the candidate pool and the number of voters. A substantial majority of the voters might still be white in a minority white district.

  • John Smith

    Why don’t most white voters want to live near blacks?

    • Samuel Hathaway

      Because they’re obnoxious, and when they obviously don’t live in your neighborhood like they don’t in mine, the wander in walking like they have till Christmas to get out, watching what you’re doing in your own yard, standing out at the street looking at you for a few seconds before moving on, cruising in playing that loud rap beat from their cars… need any more reasons?

      • John Smith

        You overthought this.

  • MBlanc46

    Okay, I’ll pick the low-hanging fruit here. People of color tend to be lazier, less intelligent, and less well organized than whites. Hence, even when they’re a majority in a district, they often can’t get a majority to the polls.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      I’ll take the other easy pitch.
      Many minority politicians have at least an element of ‘Get whitey’. I’m whitey.

    • Ringo Lennon

      Also have a bigger sexual appetite. One black man can really spread his baby makin’ material around.

  • disqus_irCdmAu8It

    To answer the question, go to YouTube and look up Rep Hank Johnson, D-GA. He represents Lithonia and Dekalb CO, GA. He is absolutely the stupidest man in DC. That is the answer.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      yeah, he represents that area all right… in the 1970s it was a rural country area, now virtually all black and part of Atlanta’s suburban sprawl. I’m actually in Gwinnett, County, not Dekalb, but the lines were extended out of Dekalb and into Gwinnett to include those of us who were kicking and screaming not be pulled into Hank boys distriict.

  • IstvanIN

    Another point: we are always being told that blacks and browns need representatives, teachers, cops, doctors and what have you that look like them. Well, so do we.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      Badly do we.

  • Cathy Madera

    its simply because democracy is a “white” thing, Whites vote. Minorities, who come culturally from third world feudal systems, largely, don’t bother.

    • Ultimate187

      Then Whites elected Obama, twice.

      • Cathy Madera

        didnt say they were smart just that they vote

  • Stogumber

    Interestingly, the question implies that Jews are not a minority, but part of the White majority – which may be good for the Jews, but perhaps bad, too.

  • Rusty Shackelford

    Having white elected officials and living in majority white communities is only permitted for the enlightened liberal elite, whose location and voting preferences are never questioned.

  • candide

    Why would whites, most of whom reject any but forced association with blacks, elect blacks to represent them?

  • HJ11

    Always vote for the White candidate over a non-White candidate.

    • meanqueen

      So, if the choice is between Hillary and Alan West, you’ll vote Hillary? I can’t agree.

      • HJ11

        That won’t be the choice and there will always be other candidates.

        I vote for the ones who have my White genes. Even if they are weak seed Whites their White genes will still exert a subtle influence and there is always the possibility that they will awaken late in life and realize they are White. A Black, on the other hand, will never be a White.

    • willbest

      I am taking Ted Cruz or Bobby Jindal over whatever the Dems are offering up. Now if its Marco Rubio… well then let the country burn.

      • HJ11

        You take too short a view of existence. You are for non-Whites if they share your present political views, which are short term, over Whites who share your genes, which are long term. That’s not my way.

        I don’t know what political positions my ancestors had, and I don’t care. I care only that they bred White and that’s why I’m here. I also breed White and my descendants won’t know what political positions I hold and they also won’t care. What is important is genes. That is what goes forward. That’s what gives us immortality.

        • willbest

          You have that backwards. Its you who is taking the short term view. Because that white candidate represents the interests of non-whites, monied elites who fear the whites, and the single white females they can buy off with shinny trinkets.

          I on the other hand am not concerned with the short term color of the figure head so long as the interests they represent aren’t engaged in the full scale destruction of my country.

          • HJ11

            You care for your “country”? I care for my people. My people are White people no matter what country they live in. It is genes that matter, not artificial countries.

            Yeah no. This is my country. Every member of my bloodline arrived before the Civil War, and most before the Revolution. This is my ancestral home.

            I take a very dim view of people thinking it is expendable. I am not about to move my family back to Europe so that I can be ostracized as being the wrong sort of white, or worse killed for it in the grandest European tradition.

            You might want to go back 30,000 years in your inclusiveness, but if genes make the culture its clear that 1000 years of separation is enough to create a shift.

          • HJ11

            Your ancestral line is just a couple of hundred years old? That is no time at all. We need to think in longer terms that such an eyeblink of existence.

  • HJ11

    Why do I only vote for White candidates? It is because I am White. I always those who look like me. Ideologies and political views are artificial and transitory. What matters in the long run are genes. I vote for White candidates becaue they have White genes.

  • HJ11

    Sowell is Black. He would never get a vote from me.

  • david dorian

    Whites are a minority in the world. Why would you ever suggest they elect non-white to represent them. This is akin to genocide.

    Unless that;s the goal…..

    • Ella

      Many whites don’t trust anyone anymore: white, black or whatever for political representation.

  • HJ11

    Yup.

  • HJ11

    It’s really simple what we awakened Whites must do: Put Whiteness above all else, all the time and in every way. This is in our own best interests and is not altruistic.

  • The story SHOULD read: Why don’t more Whites vote their racial interests?

  • ghettovalley

    Why did virtually all black voters cast their votes in favor of Barack “Bathhouse Barry” Obama in the last two presidential election? Why do so many grasp at straws to accuse whites of racism while ignoring the massive and widespread racism of the black community?

  • rommel10

    why don’t white voters just shoot themselves in the head? It’s faster if its your look’in for death? this is just nonsense

    Why don’t Asian-Americans buy cars from GM or Ford?

    • LHathaway

      Asian American’s don’t buy from American car companies often. But they sure buy American cars more often that White leftists . . .

      • newscomments70

        China buys almost one million Fords and Chevy’s, combined, every year. That’s not a large number, but that’s not bad.

        • IstvanIN

          Buick would be out of business if it weren’t for China.

        • LHathaway

          Made in Europe ‘fords’?

          • newscomments70

            I believe that Fords sold in China are built in China and India. Here is the list of Ford factories: http://en.wikipedia(dot)org/wiki/List_of_Ford_factories

            Ford is introducing Lincoln to China. The Lincolns will be made in the US. That is worrisome to Ford because of high production costs, taxes and shipping costs. These extra costs may make Lincolns unappealing compared to the locally made German luxury cars.

            That list on wikipedia is interesting. So many plants have been shut down in the US and Europe….mainly due to socialism. The plant in socialist Australia is scheduled to be shutdown in 2016. The historical line of Australian Fords will cease to exist. Asia is thriving though for Ford. Western liberalism destroys industry and creativity.

          • LHathaway

            I thought they phased out Lincoln, same as GM did with pontiac, gmc, saturn? Hey, Chevy had it’s best year ever . . . Perhaps at Ford only Mercury bit the dust? If American car companies had their best year every . . . it wasn’t selling to American customers . . . How long before only 10 % of the cars sold in the US are American brands?

          • newscomments70

            Lincoln still exists, Mercury is gone though. My favorite Fords are basically gone or soon to be axed. Ford has about 5% of the market share in China, and Chevy has about 12% of the market share. I could be off, but that’s what I read in Forbes and wikipedia. Both do well in Asia. Like Ford, Chevy of Australia is shutting down. Operations will cease in 2017. Welfare and liberalism don’t produce anything.

          • LHathaway

            Ford does, or did, relatively well in Europe, possibly in African too (I bet most cars in African are Japanese, though, or have been). I have a hard time imagining these Ford’s, completely of another design, as being American cars. How do American’s benefit from the Ford cars being sold outside the US? I’m guessing we don’t.

          • newscomments70

            Smaller Fords, like the Kuga, are aimed toward European markets who pay up to $9.00 USD per gallon for gasoline. Some of these cars are made in Texas actually. Plants in Western countries are being phased out though, due to high taxes and costs. There have been overseas operations since the 1920s. I especially like Australian Ford and Holden (GM). They used to have reasonable priced muscle cars. Now the Falcon SS V8 costs about $75,000 AUD ….such a rip-off.

            Chevrolet is 33% owned by the US treasury, because of the bailout; 70% of the cars are made in China. I would have to research how this benefits or hurts the US. I heard it was owned mostly by Chinese interests, but most of the major shareholders appear to be US financial institutions (who are financed by China). https://finance.yahoo(dot)com/q/mh?s=GM+Major+Holders

          • LHathaway

            “Chevrolet is 33% owned by the US treasury”,

            And yet, leftists Still will not buy one.

      • willbest

        Ford/GM are about as American and Honda/Toyota are Japanese. We have a Honda Odyssey, it was assembled in Alabama.

        Corolla is assembled in MS, Camry, Avalon in Kentucky, Tundra/Tacoma in Texas, Sienna & Highlander in Indiana. Toyota manufactures engines in Alabama and WV.

        Honda assembles the Civic and Acura in Indiana, Odyssey, Pilot in Alabama, Accord and Acura in Ohio.

        Plus you know all the dealers and distributors are local as well. I guess you could quibble over R&D and some of the corporate overhead leaving the country. And it isn’t like the US doesn’t tax the profits on US income.

        • LHathaway

          Honda is not alone in building their cars (for American customers) in America. I don’t have to like any of it. I wonder if that makes it even worse.

  • Maaku

    Because White voters aren’t idiots…?

  • kikz2

    we saw a huge surge of them here n. of Dallas following Katrina… now I guess many are coming in from up north, more around than ever seen before, especially in my White/expensive zipcode….. my grocery, hell, i go in there now and i might as well be what I remember when I lived in New Orleans…. a very pale minority.

  • kikz2

    even if some idiot Whites did have the inclination.. most that have been elected in/around Dallas have now been either convicted of corruption or are actively being investigated by the fed for it….. so…..

  • Non-white politicians have divided loyalties; they’re “African-American” or “Hispanic-American.” White politicians, though about as dishonest as the rest, at least consider themselves just “Americans.”

  • Speedy Steve

    Don’t worry. The GOP will continue to pander to minorities despite Sen Jesse Helms proving that pandering to the White vote works every time.

  • Speedy Steve

    Because they have misplaced their faith, their heritage, their morals, and their common sense.

  • Speedy Steve

    Well, they can get sports scholarships.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    Why don’t majority black neighborhoods elect whites? Why don’t majority Hispanic areas not elect non-Spanish speaking Hispanics?

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    Those were called liberals, progressives.

    • Speedy Steve

      They are also called race-traitors. Make sure they go to the gibbet first.

    “Why Don’t White Voters Elect Minority Reps to Congress?”

    Why should they?

    • 1G25

      Look what happens when white voters elect a minority to the presidency.

    • libertarian1234

      “Why should they?”

      Right on.

      But the better question is why don’t non-white voters elect whites to Congress in majority non-white districts?

      And the answer to both is “Because multiculturalism is an absolute failure, because people prefer their own kind.”

  • Hy Alldredge

    It’s nice to see that after 50+ years of relentless propaganda, white people still have some common sense, repressed as it may be.

  • Ella

    So, whites should just gladly give away more jobs? I mean what are we supposed to do for work?

  • Lygeia

    Why don’t white voters elect minority representative to Congress?

    Because people vote for politicians who are supposed to support their interests (if the politicians act against public policy, the people can vote them out of office).

    I am, of course, speaking of the ideal world.

  • LHathaway

    I guess BET is not enough. Not in BRA.

  • JBUB

    “Why Don’t White Voters Elect Minority Reps to Congress?”

    Seems like the answer is in the question.

  • libertarian1234

    “Why Don’t White Voters Elect Minority Reps to Congress?,”

    Because the sole concerns of non-whites….most ESPECIALLY blacks……..involves concentration on anything and everything that involves their race. They care nothing about the country as a whole, because they don’t see it as their homeland, and they’re bitterly resentful and jealous of whites.

    And if anybody wants to know why whites are not elected in majority non-white districts the answer to that is that the electorate is afraid they won’t value their race above all other things as they do. Besides non-whites….especially blacks….dislike and resent white people, due to jealousy.

    Because this situation has existed in ALL multicultural societies throughout history, it has caused them to fail, with most of them erupting into internecine warfare. We’re in the beginning stages of that right now.

    People want to live and work among their own kind and no amount of Orwellian propaganda will change that.

  • Rhialto

    Why don’t White Liberals let Blacks do their own complaining?

    If there is one area where Blacks are, at minimum, equal to all other races, it is complaining, bitching, moaning, grieving, and griping. Blacks need no help from their Liberal allies. If an issue, like White voting bothered Blacks, Blacks can and would let the world know about it.

  • mikefromwichita

    Why would any White person waste their Franchise on a non-white?

  • MooTieFighter

    I’ll give you one good reason: congresswoman sheila jackson lee

  • WR_the_realist

    White politicians never act in the interests of whites. But black and Hispanic politicians always act in the interest of their race, and against whites. So a white person who votes for a black or Hispanic politician is voting for someone who will work against him, but a black or Hispanic person who votes for a white person does not.

  • bilderbuster

    Tell him that if anymore Haitians come here that Haiti might drift away.

  • Drago Lord

  • HJ11

    I am asserting the importance of White genes over all other considerations.

    • willbest

      This is where your logic breaks down. Because politicians are tools, not ends to themselves. Electing a white person that hates whites is going to be more harmful to whites (short and long term) than electing a non-white that doesn’t.

      • HJ11

        Nonsense. You are still too short sighted. GENES are what is important. A bad or stupid White today, so long as that White breeds White, will created more Whites and some may be great for us. A non-Whie can never breed a White.

        • willbest

          Perhaps you are confused on this whole voting thing. We don’t vote for people as champion breeders. We vote for them to enact policy. If that policy is detrimental to whites they will breed less.

          • HJ11

            Perhaps you are confused on this whole gene thing. We are our genes and our genes are us. Giving non-Whites a leg up over Whites in any regard is not good in the long run for Whites.

            Why?

            Because we are in gene wars. The genes of closely related types automaticaly try to repalce the genes of other types. Doing anything that helps non-White genes win elected office or do anything in place of White genes will harm us.

  • Fr. John+

    “Why Don’t White Voters Elect Minority Reps to Congress?”

    Why should we? The over 95% black voting record (twice) for Obummer shows us how ‘racial block voting’ has destroyed this nation. If Whites ever voted en mass for a truly White (and not merely an AIPAC proxy, a la Rand Paul) candidate, the illegal Levantine Nation wouldn’t know what to do with itself.. and we can’t have that, now can we? Oy….
