>>143220> I think if they wanted to assimilate, they could
Even for those who want to assimilate and adopt Western culture, it comes down to a question of sheer numbers.
Just as in the U.S. with Mexican migrants, there are so MANY Arabs and Africans flooding into Europe that they transplant their native culture to the host nation whole-cloth.
Entire communities are filled with foreigners essentially overnight and the migrants don’t have to learn the language or adopt the culture, as there are foreign schools, grocery stores, doctors, lawyers, etc. that allow and encourage migrants to retain the culture of the Old Country.
I saw this happen in my own life, as both my parents were post-WWII Polish immigrants to Detroit where so many came after the war, that they literally changed the nature of the city (as well as in places like Chicago, Toledo, etc.) but because the Soviets cut off further immigration, their children like me, naturally assimilated into the greater American society.
As long as you allow a continual influx of foreign migrants, these Arabs and Africans (and Mexicans) will never assimilate even if they want to and most DO NOT want to assimilate in the first place, as it’s easier to keep living the same life as they did in their native lands (especially when they’re getting a whole raft of welfare benefits…)
