As politicians argue for walls and look for ways to return to the days of greatness, I am here to argue that we are witnessing a slow death of White America. This death is foreseen in the cultural epidemic associated with a pharmaceutical drug crisis and a notable decline in birth rates in White America. This essay is sincere, because I see people in my community crying for the days of old. But the truth is those days have passed. Gone are the days of the young being hard workers, and diligent go getters. Instead, we have generations on psychological drugs and opioids. These are signs of a thriving sickness, and this sickness is killing in droves. The sickness is so prevalent that is it is associated with not only a rise in suicides, but murder suicides as well while simultaneously causing future generations to be born addicted to drugs and unhealthy. This psychological and physiological sickness that plagues the generations is coupled with healthy young white couples declining to have children. For those that do, they are finding it difficult to conceive and are resorting to IVF. Finally, there is now the freedom for whites to date other races, and those of the same sex. All these factors come together to paint a grim picture: the forced reign of the gene pool by Caucasian men has come to end in America.
The slow pharmaceutical drug driven death started with a noticeable decline in the life expectancy of White Americans. Then came the rise of overdoses, in conjunction with the commonalty of suicides. “Economists Anne Case and Angus Deaton report that the life expectancy of US White persons has declined, largely as a result of drug overdose in the context of increased opioid analgesic use.” Hansen, H., & Netherland, J. (2016). Is the Prescription Opioid Epidemic a White Problem? American journal of public health, 106(12), 2127-2129. This decline was marked in 1998, two years after the Food and Drug Administration approved Oxycontin as a pain reliever. In 1999, 5669 overdose deaths by White Americans were recorded.
In 2017, 37,113 deaths were recorded. ("Opioid Overdose Deaths by Race/Ethnicity", 2019). This is an increase of 650%. Along with the rise in overdoses, by 2016 “the average white person was more likely to die by suicide than in a car accident.” ("Suicides Outnumber Murders 6 to 1 for Whites; Murders Outnumber Suicides 3.5 to 1 for Blacks", 2019). The “epidemic” driven by pharmaceuticals, and the inability to cope with reality illustrate a prevailing sickness within White America and this sickness is deadly.
This argument of a slow death of White America, and ultimately a loss of a people, is marked by choices. Though controversial, it can be said that drug abuse and suicide are personal choices, albeit by a “sick” mind. Another choice perpetuating the decline is the decision not to have children, which became a popular in 2008 due to the housing crisis and resulted in a drop in the birth rates unseen “since record keeping began in the 1940’s.” (MIKE STOBBE. (n.d.). CDC report: Birth rates plummet for young US women amid economy worries. Canadian Press, The) This drop in birth rates continued through 2016, at which time the number of births fell below the death rate. “Deaths now outnumber births among white people in more than half the states in the country, demographers have found, signaling what could be a faster-than-expected transition to a future in which whites are no longer a majority of the American population.” ("Fewer Births Than Deaths Among Whites in Majority of U.S. States", 2019)
If the cultural sickness of bad choices were the only battle White America had to win for its continued existence, there would be a fighting chance. However, statistics show that in 2016 white women were more likely to seek medical assistance in conception. 14% of white women are reported to have sought medical assistance for conception as compared to 7.5% of Hispanics, and 8% of African Americans. "Infertility, Endured Through a Prism of Race", 2019) Essentially, this means there are signs of a physiological sickness that directly affect the procreation of Caucasian DNA. This disruption of the gene pool brings into question the evolutionary superiority proclaimed under the laws of Darwinism. If the gene pool is defective, or unhealthy to the point that it inhibits the production of healthy young, Darwinism would define this as a dying species.
As there is clamor to build a wall, and cries for days of old, I am convinced we are witnessing a loss of a people. Building walls to block out immigrants and boasts of a robust economy does not change the fact that there is a prevailing sickness within White America. This illness has taken hold of multiple generations, with its fingertips reaching the fetus while still in the womb. While this sickness effects the overall population, it is combined in its effectiveness by the social decision not to procreate, as well as the biological issues that are preventing young white couples from successfully reproducing without the help of medical intervention.
Walls will not protect us from the choices that are now being made within the white community. Whether the choice is to use pharmaceutical assistance to fight sickness of the mind or body; to find solace in recreational drugs; to take ones own life, or even the lives of others; whether or not to procreate; or to seek medical assistance to successfully conceive, the combined effect has been to usher in this loss of a people. These choices have led the way for a decline in life expectancy; a drastic rise in addictions, overdoses, and suicides; and a decline in birth rates. Men lie, women lie, but the numbers do not lie and the numbers show that we are witnessing the loss of a people.
