When left unchecked, all of the above.
The extreme elements of those communities will grab a foothold and will operate using old-world fears that still linger. That will continue until the government or the communities themselves engage in battle with the extreme elements. There are countless examples in history.
And there are countless examples of false racist hysteria that society will collapse because of those demographics taking over america, and yet here we are.
There are examples of both, I agree. But let's not discount how demographic shaped this country, and not always for the better.
Most censorship legislature, for example, stems from religious busybodies who used demographics to force laws or pressure business with threats of laws.
