They will be forced, as other minority segments of the population have throughout America's history, to form coalitioins with other groups and moderate or adjust their political stance. It's only seen as a shocking idea because it's happening to white men.

@KarenUhOh I used to get bothered about it, but really, second-tier cool cities to live in like Chicago, Oakland (not San Francisco*), Portland, Austin, and Seattle(?) don't need the rent to be jacked up anymore. So leave them out of it.

Does it really have to be either New York or L.A.? Sometimes I think your High-and-Mighty gets a little Forest-for-Trees.

I can never tell with this "new frontier" shit whether they're being ironic or they ACTUALLY never got past the version of history we got taught in 2nd grade. Pioneers are heroes who discovered UNCHARTED TERRITORIES, and there were a fewwwww people there already but they all became best friends, and they taught them not to be savages! I think the second version is likely-- they genuinely don't think the pioneers displaced anybody and don't think they'll displace anybody, because brown people aren't people.

The Washington Post has long been Fred Hiatt's Halfway House for Wayward Neocons. It's transformation into a conservative forum is now complete. Any future references to it as part of the Liberal Media can be scoffed at.
