Demographic Disaster Unfolds

Don
Collin
`s VDARE.com posting is on the mark.

Of course, one major aspect of this
demographic explosion that

Isiah Leggett
or any other Maryland official won`t
tell you is that the Hispanic population is largely
concentrated in key areas (although the boundaries of
these ethnic Latino enclaves are
expanding outward in to adjacent  communities
).
Assimilation is a joke. The WP coverage of this
2000-2010 demographic change is eye-opening.

What readers outside the immediate
area do not realize is that increasingly large stretches
of territory in and around Montgomery County are now
considered off limits by many middle-class native white
families seeking a peace-of-mind suburban existence for
their kids (safe

parks
, good

schools
, clean public areas, areas largely
crime-free, etc.). English is a foreign language

throughout much of Langley Park
(see 2005 WP
article, “Langley
Park Reeling After Slashings of 5 Victims in 5 Days
`Horrifying` Attacks Not Connected, Police Say

By Allison Klein and Nick Anderson,
Washington Post,
August 16, 2005)

I lived in the Oakview neighborhood
(10 minutes directly north of Langley Park) in the late
1980s and in 1994/1995 and the neighborhood has been
severely transformed in less than 20 years—from a
tolerable aging neighborhood in need of
“gentrification”
to an undesirable alien threshold.
But the negative experiences of local, life-long
residents (the stuff

Terry Anderson
would
talk about
) will never be publicly attributed to
this influx of foreigners. Leggett`s quote in the
Gazette
article is typical of the mindset.

Consequently, many residents have
moved out of Oakview. A map of
"Crime
rates for Silver Spring, MD
"
highlights Oakview
as less safe than other Silver Spring communities.

This migration—one population
pushing out another population—takes its toll on the
environment since the need for new
“safe”
and “affordable” neighborhoods spawns more construction, more housing,
and
converting former rural land and farms
into
desirable

exurb
communities.
