Maybe that is the point where people start noticing the change. It's not about the minority that is the problem, it's the majority who becomes fearful that is the problem. Part of the reason that some people are demanding a return to the America as it used to be is because our population is becoming much more diverse, and it scares white people.

My neighborhood where I lived in the city was heavily populated with the Latino population, and it was enjoyable to live in such a diverse community.

good point..

If you take world wide populations like the pie chart does, that does seem to be the case. If you put that theory to work in a community, school, club...., it might hold.  My home town / county had two Jewish families and no one  cared. In fact, when I left there, there  was one Jewish person in the town/county and he was the elected mayor. 
I noticed that in  my area...  Mexican was not an issue for local complaints until the population soared past ten percent.

I was going by the chart below. That is still a very small part of the population. You can probably break it down even smaller, that 90% of all Jews live in large cities.
 
Oh yeah, not trying to be contrary, I imagine the 1% refers to world population.

{#Arrowd} That is interesting. 
I remember reading once where a ''group'' has to be over ten per cent to become '''a problem'' for the rest of the population.

The words of Jesus, if he really existed at all, have been twisted and rewritten so many times, that no one really knows what he may have believed in anyway. I just heard that it has been determined that the words of Paul have been untruthfully represented.

I guess it all depends on your definition of Jesus, cross, saved, heaven, and follow.
 
Jesus - The little dude on Crenshaw with that tricked out bike with the playing cards between the spokes.

Cross - To get pissed off! He was really cross with me today.

Saved - Your friend has a kidney stone pass and calls you in the middle of that boooooorrrrriiiiiing banquet.

Heaven - -Cannot display here, forum guidelines-

Follow - What our dog does to everyone inevitably sniffing their buts.
