If you didn’t see this one coming, you just weren’t looking. For most of our country’s history, we’ve celebrated diversity in our population as if it were a good thing, but one look at world history will show you that no country with a diverse population of different races, languages, and religion has long survived.
Countries don’t naturally form with a diverse population, and when in the past they’ve occurred, it has usually been as the result of armed conquest. These unnaturally formed countries have either melded together into a population made up of one mixed race with one language and one religion or they’ve come apart, and they’ve usually come apart with extreme violence. The longer these diverse populations are forced to coexist with one another without mixing and becoming one, the more the hatred grows among them and the more violently they break apart, but break apart they will.
So, with this history lesson in mind, what future do you see for our country? Will we someday soon become one people made up of olive skinned, dark haired, Spanish speaking Muslims, or will we break up into three or four small (Balkanized) third-world countries that hate their neighboring country’s guts?

If you didnâ€™t peep dis one coming, you just werenâ€™t looking. For most of our ghettoâ€™s history, weâ€™ve celebrated diversitizzle up in our population as if it was a phat muthafuckin thang yo, but one peep ghetto history will sheezy you dat no ghetto wit a thugged-out diverse population of different races, languages, n' religion has long survived.
Hoodz donâ€™t naturally form wit a thugged-out diverse population, n' when up in tha past theyâ€™ve occurred, it has probably been as tha result of armed conquest. These unnaturally formed ghettos have either melded together tha fuck into a population done cooked up up of one mixed race wit one language n' one religion and theyâ€™ve come apart, n' theyâ€™ve probably come apart wit off tha hook violence. Da longer these diverse populations is forced ta coexist wit one another without mixin n' becomin one, tha mo' tha hatred grows among em n' tha mo' violently they break apart yo, but break apart they will.
So, wit dis history lesson up in mind, what tha fuck future do you peep fo' our ghetto, biatch? Will our crazy-ass asses somedizzle soon become one gangstas done cooked up up of olive skinned, dark haired, Spanish bustin lyrics Muslims, and will our crazy-ass asses break up tha fuck into three and four lil' small-ass (Balkanized) third-ghetto ghettos dat don't give a fuck bout they neighborin ghettoâ€™s guts?

"These unnaturally formed countries have either melded together into a population made up of one mixed race with one language and one religion or they’ve come apart, and they’ve usually come apart with extreme violence."

"but one look at world history will show you that no country with a diverse population of different races, languages, and religion has long survived."
Yeah, because Egypt, North Africa, India, China, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia didn't survive very long and none of them were ever advanced or prominent civilizations....
"Countries don’t naturally form with a diverse population"
Yeah, because humans stay the same as they move about and populate away from their paternal population clade. Yep, that's totally how Evolution works....
"The longer these diverse populations are forced to coexist with one another without mixing and becoming one, the more the hatred grows among them and the more violently they break apart"
Tell that to Central Asia.
"Will we someday soon become one people made up of olive skinned, dark haired, Spanish speaking Muslims"
The US will probably look like the average elementary school today: Half or a little less than half of the kids are white, the rest are kids of different "races" and about 1/5 to 1/4 of the kids are different mixes. BTW, people who are mixed don't automatically come out olive-skinned. Sometimes the mixture may not be very apparent or may show up as different facial features but they still have the skin color of one parent; or they have a different skin color altogether from either parent.

Because France is soooo uniform...
Tell a Marseillais he is like a Ch'ti, and you will be rewarded with either a deafening roar of laughter or an ear-ringing bitch slap.

Broadly speaking the theoretical historic background is correct, the thing is, only in most cases. There are always exceptions to these rules because the people of a region have decided to be together. Do different races, religions and cultures make it harder to be together? Of course, but if people want something, they can be very patient.
Look at Europe right now, and let's say - as it really is - that the dozen of racially or religiously motivated cases of violence on a continent of more than 500 million isn't exactly the beginning of a race war. What you see in the EU is sovereign object made of 23+unrecognized language areas, 27 nations, 3 branches of Christianity + 2 branches of Islam + Judaism + a hell full of atheists plus we have different political systems. But the shit we fight about is financials and how much power what branch of the EU should have and not to forget the speed at which we unite. The times in which we called each other hereditary enemies are over, now we call each other brothers.
Why? Because we want to. I think the USA can get there too.

Your name suggest that you are an anglo-saxon. Racial purity fail.

Oh yes, Switzerland is a hellhole where everyone hates each others guts and is about to break up into a few nations, considering that it has four official languages and all.
Wait a minute...
