If current rates of immigration continue White countries like Canada and the United States will become authoritarian, low IQ, non-environmentalist, non-artistic, non-sporting, etc. High status culture tends to have a powerful pull, everyone ends up following t...

Re: Race versus culture

BTW did you know that in bay or chestnut horses white legs are a sign of weakness in the legs? :lol: No, I didn't know that. I wish I knew more about horses. I suppose the race of horse I would most like would be the Arabian? It was a joke, silly! About a superstition. As for Arabian horses, those ...
