Reading the lastest offering by the Economist I can’t help but notice the fear-mongering discourse carefully weaved into the pithy writing. A White America has apparently been taken over by a “much browner” cohort. This article is steeped in lingustic manoueverings which leaves the impression that we are literally being swamped by ethnic minorities (gasp, majorities!), particularly poginant is the reference to the kids and the lack of white friends to play with. I blame Brad and Angelina.
