Where is the evidence of cultural change?

Reader comment on item: 50 Years of Dangerous Immigration Legislation

Submitted by EBA (Canada), Oct 4, 2015 at 09:53

The short article appear to equate culture to race. They are loosely related, however, different identifiers. To seek for a causational tie, leads one down to a racist world view. In addition, the article appears to entirely discount the positive impact of immigration on the American culture (and possibly associated values.) Since there appears to be no evientual impact of 65 legislation on the American culture, the natural conclusion one can reach is that it is unlikely that there will be an erosion of American values.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I regret this impression. I do not see race and culture as equivalent.

I use the racial figures not because they indicate a person's culture but because it is the number that the U.S. government collects that statistically most clearly makes the point about the impact of immigration.
