Do you agree that Immigration without assimilation is invasion and a potential source of conflict? submitted by lens163 to AskVoat

honorkell 1 points 67 points (+68|-1) ago

I think comparing the US and the EU regarding immigration is impossible. US culture changes extremely rapidly, and is much better at absorbing foreign cultures, assimilating them into itself. Granted, I live on the East Coast, NJ, which is basically a first destination for many immigrants, so I don't really notice it. But, I have to admit that I really like the diversity I'm exposed to every day. When I travel, I kind of see the more rural areas of the country as a bit bland. Bland in political opinion, religion, food, and culture. But, as a whole, the US is very live and let live.

I think the EU has a MUCH bigger problem with immigration. The EU is already heavily separated into regions with very different, and ancient cultures. When their immigrants come, I can see a big push back from Europeans striving to defend their own culture which I feel serves to reinforce the immigrants clinging more strongly to their own. In America, at least on the coasts, there's a much larger sentiment of "eh, I don't care what you do or what language you speak, just don't get in my way" that Europe can't offer. In a few generations, the "don't care" attitude lets immigrants relax. The first and second generations might cling to culture, but America is very good at weeding that out by the third and further generations. And the best part? The good stuff about your culture (usually food) that we like? Well we'll adopt that thank you.

edit: I should also point out that in America, yes there's still racism, but there is an underlying sense of "everyone is an American." So many of us can name the year our families came here, its kind of hypocritical to single someone out as "not American." The Asian guy's family may have come over in the 1850s to lay tracks for the railroad. My family only came in the 1920s, so how can I say I'm "more American" than him? In Europe, if you're Asian, you could have been in France for 200 years, but your kids still aren't "French." I think that's a problem for EU that can't be solved easily.

That's great - and I agree - but you need to understand SRS in the context of reddit. They initially started to point out stupid, retarded garbage some comments were on reddit: to kind of act as a tool to point out the hypocrisy of reddit. A site that did such wonderful things, but allowed "this?" -------->[insert racist/sexist/ridiculous comment here]

They started on reddit to hate reddit and redditors.

Ok. Fine. Allowed. Like you said, protect free speech, and if someone said something stupid, sure, point it out.

But then... as reddit grew, and as reddit got into internet fights with various other websites, and meanwhile, while reddit's "filth" side grew (not nearly as much as the rest of it did, but still), SRS had more than enough materiel to work with, and plenty of angry users who also hated reddit.

So they grew massively, and they brigade, and they harass, and they threaten, and they produce a chilling effect on speech. They even log where other users post now on reddit to mark them for future brigading and harassment.

This goes beyond free speech. This is a private police force. A private thought police force. Free speech I am all for. Brigading, harassment, and death threats? Not okay.

Well this is just fucking stupid. I'm pretty sure I could make a list of things invented by Muslims and Africans too. Do you like Algebra? The number system you use? Thanks Arabs. Do you like gunpowder? Thanks Asians. Paper is pretty cool, thanks Egypt.

It's fine to be proud of your race. All that other shit you wrote just makes you look like a dumbass.

Expected. Not surprised. I hope voat can cope. Atkos seems to be giving it is all.

Well this time its not hating on fat people or women. It's actually gasp in defense of a woman who was fired by corporate-fueled reddit! Its like we're not all fat women haters and instead we just want a free speech platform! Oh my God how could that be?!
