      Don’t worry America will become like Brazil/southern Europe eventually.They’re mono racial numbers keep dropping as the days go by,might as well just accept multiracial already.They always be white people whether you choose to see them and call them white is your own problem.Goodluxk getting extinct.

        What the hell does it mean…that southerm Europe is multiracial as Brazil?? There are barely little to no interracial marriages/unions between non European-immigrants and Southern Europeans. Birth rate is dramatically low anyway. Ah, I forgot, you believe Mike Tirico is fully Italian and Italians are 10-40% “Arab/African” LMFAO.

    Actually he has to be part english too, I remember reading his mom had italian blood, which means his dad might actually had english blood.

  4. jjy says:
