Re: A Reader Wonders About Disney`s Latina Princess: How Realistic Is She?A Young Illinois Reader [Email him]
That`s a lovely castle Disney`s new princess has. I wonder how much plundered gold and silver
from the Americas it took to fund it?
I`m joking, of course, but there`s an argument to be made here that turns the tables on the PC crowd
The conquistadors didn`t seem to have a problem ruling over large numbers of indigenous peoples when it meant lots of labor for their haciendas
, silver mines,
etc. But now that the proverbially restless natives have become inconvenient for Latin elites
, they`re happy to export their surplus peasantry
Immigration restrictionists should cast mass immigration as a kind of demographic bailout for Latin America`s white ruling class.
It`s not the most direct or forceful argument, but it has the advantage of being palatable to the sensibilities of mainstream conservatism.See a previous letter from the same reader.
