The ongoing genocide (as defined under international law) through demographic displacement of Southern people and culture continues in North Carolina. A flood of Northerners and foreigners has radically altered not only the ethnic and cultural make-up of the State but has also predictably transformed the Old North State politically. Bill Barrow and Susanne Schafter have an article on this for the Associated Press:
North Carolina’s population has nearly doubled since 1970, fueled by an economic expansion that brought an influx of Midwesterners, Northeasterners and nonwhites and turning the state from a Republican presidential stronghold into a battleground.
Among the new residents: Carol Fentiman, 66, a Chicago native who retired with her husband to the western Carolina mountains seven years ago from California and is a Democratic Party volunteer. And Piper Phillips, 18, a college student who moved here a year ago from Ohio and who will cast her first presidential ballot this year for Barack Obama.
To explain their upcoming votes, both cited women’s health care and abortion rights, civil rights for gay Americans and equal pay for women.
Notice that these outsiders are not content with enjoying the better weather and friendlier people in the South. They immediately set to work trying to change things to make the South politically and socially like where they originate. Essentially, Southerners are being colonised by a very different people (those such as Fentiman and Phillips) with a completely different worldview.
