Midst of a vast social experiment

NY Times columnist and Trump-hater David Brooks writes:
The short answer is: immigration. Trump, like global populists everywhere, understands that we’re in the middle of a vast social experiment. Waves of migration are transforming societies across the globe. The U.S. will have no majority group in three decades. Sweden could be between 20 and 30 percent Muslim by 2050, according to Pew Research projections.

As the saying goes, everybody is now everywhere. ...

91.3 percent of white Hillary Clinton voters with graduate degrees said it’s racist to want less immigration for ethnic and cultural reasons.
Yes, we are in the midst of a vast social experiment to replace Whites with non-whites. And if you object, then you are a racist, according to those who are in on the plan.

Okay, all immigration opinions are racist. The various sides of the issue are looking to preserve or destroy various ethnic and cultural groups. There is no way around that fact. The natural reaction of most people is to stick up for their own group, when it runs into conflict with others. Whites are the least racist people in the world, but there are limits to what they will tolerate.

Brooks is Jewish, so of course he spends the rest of the column arguing that Trump is wrong to want to limit immigration, and that non-Jewish Whites should just "enjoy the adventure of pluralism" and accept that "God’s truth is radically dispersed." As for Jews, he is very pro-Israel.
