Census: Fewer white babies being born

By Stephanie Siek and Joe Sterling, CNN

(CNN)– U.S. minorities now represent more than half of America's population under the age of 1, the Census Bureau said, a historic demographic milestone with profound political, economic and social implications.

The bureau - defining a minority as anyone who is not "single race white" and "not Hispanic" - released estimates on Thursday showing that 50.4% of children younger than 1 were minorities as of July 1, 2011, up from 49.5% from the 2010 Census taken in April 2010.

"2011 is the first time the population of infants under age 1 is majority minority," said Robert Bernstein, a Census Bureau spokesman.

The latest statistics - which also count the national population younger than 5 as 49.7% minority in 2011, an increase from 49% in 2010 - portend a future of a more racially diverse America, with new and growing populations playing more important roles politically and economically in years to come, analysts say.

Like other analysts, Kenneth M. Johnson, senior demographer at the Carsey Institute and professor of sociology at the University of New Hampshire, isn't surprised at the trend.

"We've known it was going to come, but the question was what year the "crossover point" would happen, he said.

"Little children are in the vanguard of all this change coming to America." he said.

Johnson sees the trend as an opportunity for more Americans to embrace diversity. More children are going to be exposed to a more diverse group of classmates, and that will affect attitudes and outlook.

The changes are going to be felt first in hospitals, as well as schools, where an increasingly diverse child population has to be absorbed. Hospitals would need interpreters and translators, for example, Johnson said. English as a second language would be an educational priority.

While many regions such as Atlanta have a diverse population, other regions lack racial and ethnic variety and will have to deal with a new kind of population, he said. In declining rural counties, he said, an influx of groups like Hispanics would serve to renew communities and changes would ensue.

"For a country that's aging, we need young workers, and the growth of the minority population will contribute to the size of the young adult workforce," he said. "This is breathing new life into the United States."

Jeff Passell, senior demographer at the Pew Hispanic Center, called the Census numbers "a cumulative effect of 35 to 40 years of immigration" bringing large numbers of Latinos, Asians and other immigrants into the United States.

He said the Hispanic population in particular is very young, much more concentrated in child-bearing years, and has a higher fertility rate than the white, non-Hispanic population. Lately, he says, there are a lot more births among native Hispanics in the United States than new Hispanic immigrants, a "cumulative effect" of immigration.

If the trend continues, Passell says several decades from now, possibly in the late 2030s or early 2040s, the U.S. population will become less than 50% non-Hispanic white.

"This is a trend that we can reasonably expect to continue. The factors that determine this have been set into motion, and in demography things tend to change gradually," he said.

There were 114 million minorities in 2011, or 36.6% of the U.S. population, a bump of half a percentage point from 2010. The latest figures count Hispanics as the most populous and fastest growing minority group.

They numbered 52 million in 2011, and their population grew by 3.1% since 2010. The U.S. Hispanic population grew from 16.3% in 2010 to 16.7% in 2011.

"California had the largest Hispanic population of any state on July 1, 2011 (14.4 million), as well as the largest numeric increase within the Hispanic population since April 1, 2010, (346,000)," the Census said.

"New Mexico had the highest percentage of Hispanics at 46.7%. Los Angeles had the largest Hispanic population of any county (4.8 million) in 2011 and the largest numeric increase since 2010 (73,000). Starr County - on the Mexican border in Texas - had the highest share of Hispanics (95.6 percent)."

Asians numbered 18.2 million nationally in 2011, making them the second fastest-growing minority group - up by 3% since 2010. Figures show that California had the largest Asian population of any state at 5.8 million and the largest increase since 2010 at 131,000.

"Hawaii is our nation's only majority-Asian state, with people of this group comprising 57.1% of the total population. Los Angeles had the largest Asian population of any county (1.6 million) in 2011, and also the largest numeric increase (16,000) since 2010. At 61.2%, Honolulu had the highest percentage of Asians in the nation," the Census said.

African-Americans are the second largest minority group in the United States at 43.9 million in 2011, an increase of 1.6% from 2010. New York has the largest black population of any state with 3.7 million and Texas has the largest increase from 2010 of 84,000. Cook County, Illinois, which includes Chicago, has the largest black population of any county at 1.3 million. Fulton County, Georgia, which includes Atlanta, has the largest increase since 2010 at 13,000.

The District of Columbia has the highest percentage of blacks at 52.2%. Mississippi has the second-largest at 38%.

America's native population - labeled "American Indian and Alaska Native population" by the Census - was about 6.3 million in 2011, up 2.1% from 2010. California had the largest such population at 1,050,000 and the largest increase at 23,000. Alaska had the highest share at 19%. Los Angeles had the largest such population of any county, with 231,000, and the largest increase, 9,000 since 2010.

The population classified as "Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander" was 1.4 million in 2011, up 2.9% since 2010. Hawaii had the largest such population of any state at 359,000 and the highest percentage at 26.1. California had the largest increase since 2010 at 9,000. Honolulu has the largest population of any county at 235,000. Los Angeles County had the largest increase since 2011 at 2,700.

Of single race non-Hispanic whites, California had the largest population at 15 million. Texas had the largest increase since 2010 at 80,000. Maine had the highest percentage of the non-Hispanic white alone population, 94.3 percent.

Four states and the District of Columbia have predominantly minority populations, Hawaii, at 77%, the District of Columbia at 64.7%, California, at 60.3%, New Mexico, at 59.8%, and Texas, at 55.2%. Minorities comprised the majority population in 11% of the nation's 3,143 counties.

Michael White, professor of sociology at Brown University, said the rise of minorities fits into a longer-term evolution of the U.S. population, a mosaic that has been adapting to ethnic change since the first Census was recorded in 1790. There have been many groups represented over time, from enslaved and indigenous peoples, those of European stock, and now to a population reflecting the wider world - truly a "melting pot," he said.

White says it's hard to say how the changes will affect politics and that one can't assume that ethnic patterns will determine voting patterns. Local economic issues, for example, will evolve differently in different states and cities, and there are economic benefits of having a younger population, he said.

"The political dimensions will play out differently," he said. And by the time the babies are old enough to cast ballots, "the United States will be a different place when they are walking into a voting booth."

William Frey, Brookings Institution demographer, sees political challenges for new immigrants and an economy benefiting from their presence. Many Hispanics and Asians are too young to vote or can't cast ballots because they haven't become citizens.

"It's going to take perhaps awhile before the younger people get more engaged in politics. They do have an impact in some places, like swing states, such as Nevada, Colorado and Florida. They can make a difference," he said.

He, too, says that newcomers to the United States bring an energy that invigorates the economic system and an older society.

"I think we're going to just see that the younger part of the population will have a different vibe," he said. "They are sort of needed to help our youthful image and to add to that vitality. They will bring a dimension and element we sorely need."

    I am Asian but I need to tell ya ll this fact. Whites, although not all, are self disciplined. If they see a trash on the ground they pick it up and throw it on the garbage. If its Asians, Mexicans, Africans, or any other races, they will just add more trash to the ground. So I m concerned being in America that the whites that made this country great are dwindling and becoming minorities...therefore i m concerned about the state of this country.

        The whole southern economy was based on slavery for hundreds of years. Its a big part of the reason America was able to grow in to the world power it is today despite the fact that it is significantly younger than other world powers. This country has thrived because of its early economic success and has continued to thrive because of contributions of all of its citizens. To try to minimize the contributions of minorities by taking a myopic view of American history is just plain dumb. You might want to pick up a history book.

    I don't know how people can afford babies anymore with a price tag of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars to raise a baby to age 18 . But recently I saw several 18 near olds trying to do the ROTC thing . A kid is a very expensive play toy and if they end up in jail or you get a divorce its a total nightmare if you get your paycheck tapped for child support .

    Why can't we all be U.S. Citizens, instead of classifying ourselves by white, black, or hispanic. Only in the U.S. do they attach such labels. Other countries name there citizens from the land where they are formed. China-Chinese, Mexico-Mexicans. The writer of this article, the U.S. Census, and whatever government official that thinks this way is the reason for the creation of racism in this country. As someone mentioned before this country did not start off as pure white and in case you don't know there is no such thing as white. I am German and I am not white I am a German.

In fact they are the original caucasians being that these people are actually descended from the original tribes who resided in the Caucus mountains and it is from them that White Europeans (also caucasians) are descended. So are all Caucasians white? Not in skin color.

    Whites can not afford to have children. White middle class citizens are too busy working so they can pay the state and local taxes for food stamps, Medicaid, SNAP, WIC, housing assistance, special education and other costs spend on the children of illegal aliens and blacks who think they have the right to be supported by the government.

      In the Appalachian belt, over 90% of the inhabitants are on welfare and over 85% of those are white. Did you forget them? They are also having more babies than avg for white people. White people are becoming sterile–it is not that they work so hard they can't have kids (many try to adopt and end up adopting other nationality babies including black ones) it is that many cannot physically reproduce. Which why there is a baby shortage for white couples –even a shortage from other countries.

    Uh so funny story. They actually predicted this to happen in 2010, not 2011. Meaning minority birthrates are growing more slowly than we thought. Also minorities are going to be having children at the same rate as whites by 2020 if current abortion and childlessness rates are to be believed, so the next couple of years we're going to hit a "high water" of minority births and then see non-hispanic whites become a majority of births again.

    Also there's the funny fact that five of my cousins are minorities because they are "hispanic and white" on the census. I don't know if something's wrong with my eyes, but they don't really look like mexicans to me. They look pretty.... well European is what I'd call it. 10% of births are to hispanic whites. Meaning that about 60% of births are white.

    This whole "spaniards are minorities" thing is kind of stupid, since germans and english and irish are also all minorities if we're taking white people out and singling them out by ethnicity.

    I would say that by 2050 America will be whiter than it is now not "more diverse" and "darker".

      Interesting point. I am Caucasian and my wife is from Mexico, and my kids both look Caucasian. Many Mexicans have Caucasian genes from the Spanish and French and apparently the gene for skin color is dominant for lighter skin in many cases. Immigration from Mexico has stalled out due to the economy. You may well be right!

      Eh, who even knows what's going to be culturally "white" in 2050. I'm "white". But not all of my ancestors were European, there's 5%-ish this and that blended in from 17th century colonial mixing. There are plenty of other "white" people out there who could say the same. And a lot of the kids that the census is counting as minorities are majority "white", sometimes it's hard to dig the truth out of the statistics. The one-droppers can worry about a future as an oppressed minority if they want to but it seems more likely that we're headed toward something like a Brazilian definition of white rather than a marginalization of light skinned people.

    I made some changes on my previous post on this subject. Regarding the possible explanations and reasons for the situation/subject of the article. The way I see them, there are about 10 Top Possibilities or reasons. The first and the second are based on facts. One thru eight are based on personal experience and a lot of people I know and have met over the years. Nine thru eleven are intended as a sarcastic satire, an exageration. Nine is something we see in the News almost weekly. Of course the Top Possibility is number twelve. No pun intended!

    1- White women abort.
    2- White wome use contraceptives.
    3- White people are or have become sterile.
    4- White people prefer to have pets specially dogs rather than children.
    5- White people call their pets, specially dogs; baby.
    6- White people prefer luxurys (Ferraris, Mansions, Pools) over children.
    7- White people don't love children.
    8- White people don't like children.
    9- White people are killing their children
    10- White people are eating their children due to eating disorders.
    11- White people are feeding their children to their dogs.
    12- Because all of the above, God's judgement is that white people don't deserve children.

    Wow, the ignorant comments on here amaze me...

    does no one realize that Euro/Whites, in building this country (on the backs of slaves after having wiped out the Native population), justified dehumanizing blacks for 400 years? and even after slavery, continued with the jim crow era and consistently disenfranchised people of color from being full citizens of the US..when those people of color helped to build it??? Whites brought slaves over while at the same time colonized and forced themselves into other nations leaving native peoples of those lands (e.g. mexico, Philippines, Asia, pacific Islands, etc) no choice but to leave, not because they all wanted to leave their home, but because America forced itself in, stole lands and raped them of their resources while at the same time claiming itself to be a nation of "justice" and "opportunity"??

    so considering the history of the injustices of whites in building this nation...you honestly think that those people of color today who are in poverty, on welfare, etc..just happen to be that way because of their race or what have you??? it's ridiculous. the reality is, whites got a head start by oppressing all people who weren't a "pure, white race"..to be white is a social construction based on the racist fews towards anyone who wasn't "white".

    some of your arguments of whites being a naturally "better" race makes me laugh hysterically.

        You apparently don't have much experience with kids. Otherwise you'd know that lots and lots of little kids don't want to share with their siblings! Lots of little kids also hit their siblings! You wanna tell us how much closer to the "same as us" those little kids could possibly get than their brother or sister?

        But what about babies showing awareness of and preference for their own race? Guess what? You're not even close.

        Yes. Studies have shown that...yes...when 3- 6 month olds were shown pictures of people of their same race and a different one, the babies 'preferred' the same race.

        But!!! Later studies actually show that babies don't really show a preference of their *own* race...but, rather, the race of the people they're used to seeing!!

        Yup. Nothing to do with genetics. Everything to do with who they see all the time!

        Newborns? Well, they don't care one way or another.

        3 month olds? They prefer the race of their primary caretaker...unless they are regularly exposed to people of different races, and then they show *no* preference!

        Turns out this "genetic default setting" you erroneously want to believe exists is actually based on nothing more than the ethnicity of faces viewed within these little ones' visual environment! Oh gee, darn. Turns out they simply respond more positively to what they're used to seeing. And when they're used to seeing multiple ethnicities...they have zero preference.

      Goodness,
      No wonder there is so much racism if so many think that minorities all receive free things at the great expense of others. It's not true, though. Majority and disproportionate are not the same thing. The majority work very hard for what they have and do not receive assistance.

        Your statement is probably true for life in general, but it is certainly not true for college and graduate school admissions. Affirmative action policies result in more scholarship money and easier admissions for students of color than they do for white students of the same academic achievement and ability levels and the same socioeconomic status. Why should a black student growing up poor in the inner city, raised by a single parent who has only a high school (or less than high school) education get a scholarship to attend college, whereas a white student growing up poor in rural America, raised by a single parent who has only a high school (or less than high school) education can't go to college because they are ineligible for these scholarships, thanks to their skin color? Affirmative action is racial discrimination, plain and simple, and it has done a good deal to harm race relations in our country.

        What would this country have been like if the federal government did not force states to allow black children to attend public schools or use public restrooms, water foutains, etc? Today, young people only see a small piece of a nasty puzzle and feel as thoughy something is being taken away from them and "given" to people of color. Acts of rectification may indeed seem unfair, but allow for a level playing field.

        @John: No, affirmative action **allowed** (past tense) for a level playing field. Race-based affirmative action was highly necessary in the 1960's, but by now, things have had time to balance out. I should also say that I am all for affirmative action based on socioeconomic status; however, economically disadvantaged white kids need a leg up every bit as much as economically disadvantaged black kids do. Both groups experience the same struggles and challenges to their education, and to discriminate between them based on skin color is racism.

        @John: As far as "rectification" is concerned, I don't think that taking an eye for an eye "rectifies" anything, especially if you don't take the second eye from the first offender, but rather from another offender of their same race who was born after the crime was committed!

I am not speaking about GI bills; I am speaking of education, and in the educational field, poor whites currently have far MORE disadvantages than poor blacks do because of racist affirmative action policies.

        No, Kate.

        Affirmative action policies DO NOT result in more scholarship money for students of color than they do for white students of the same academic achievement and ability levels and the same socioeconomic status.

        And...no...affirmative action policies DO NOT screw over your poor rural white student in regards to getting scholarship money to go to college...and it's totally inappropriate that you should make that claim. Passing on old wives' tales as "fact" can cause harm. Often cause a great deal of harm...particularly when they foster racism.

        The fact is, Kate, that white students currently make up less than 66% of the college population, they get over 76% of the scholarship money. Not only that, but white students are 40% more likely to get a scholarship than minority students!

        So...would you please explain to us how these facts work with your claim that "students of color" get more scholarship money?? Or explain how your poor rural white student "can't go to college because they are ineligible for these scholarships, thanks to their skin color"?

In other words, if you were a white with your heart set on a scholarship to Baylor Law, and a magical genie offered you the choice of increasing your LSAT score by 4 points or changing your skin color, you'd be better off financially with the latter option."

        "Although organs are not matched according to race/ethnicity, and people of different races frequently match one another, all individuals waiting for an organ transplant will have a better chance of receiving one if there are large numbers of donors from their racial/ethnic background. This is because compatible blood types and tissue markers—critical qualities for donor/recipient matching—are more likely to be found among members of the same ethnicity."

Could it be they got to keep their GI Benefits after world war II, could it be they received subsidized home loan, unlike people of color and women? White people weren't redlined out of the suburbs. The ascension of the middle class after the war, a college educated new middle class can thank it's creation to affirmative action programs like the GI Bill. This isn't a distortion, it's a reality.

      I agree 100%. How can white be the minority when the other 50+% is made up of multiple different races. Unless one of those races has more than 49.5% then white is still the majority. Some people need to learn math.

    when one culture is taxed to pay for another culture, guess which culture can't afford to have more than one or two children and is taxed out of existance. It's a cycle that feeds itself.

    The anger and depravity of this commentary is proof that white supremacy is a failed system. Hating people based on small physical traits robs the haters of the ability to reason based on objective reality, show basic human empathy toward other humans, and make rational observations of other people. race does not even exist biologically so why would ethnic diversity be something to fear. The pallpable anger and fear in this commentary from the jim crow loving remnant of the white population is a sad but inevitable consequence of the embrace of white supremacy.

I'm not convinced Europe, which is quite small compared to the entire world, is the only place on the planet with cooler temperatures "conducive to developement", whatever that means. Did you know that Europe has something called a winter? Where going outside becomes all but impossible to deal with? Whereas in temperate climates, you could still go outside.

      The financial bankers and elites couldn't care less if the U.S. was 99% green martians with purple polka-dots, ate skinned cats and spoke Martian. Al they care about is "ECONOMIC INTEGRATION" of immigrants - legal or illegal.

      From the moment a newcomer steps off a plane (or crosses the dessert), they need to buy or rent a home/condo, which makes land developers and banks rich. They consume and indebt themselves buying food and clothes. Credit card companies cheer.
      They instantly become surplus labor which drives down wages - corporations and business cheer and roll in profits and grin at their cheap disposable workforce.

      It's a cycle that's been repeating itself for sometime. Capitalism needs a constant growing population in order to survive, or it collapses. It's like a giant monster that needs to be fed. Don't expect the government to turn off immigration any time soon - to legals or illegals.

      White people stopped having kids in the 1970's shortly after the pill was discovered. Maybe they realized they didn't want to bring kids up into this fixed game?

    Where as minorities have the grunt jobs and have no or little education and can breed like rabbits and receive the smart white peoples money in the form of food stamps and free housing and education and medial care for their growing brood of minority children.

        this is the problem. Ignorance of history and science and the most racist vehicle of all, TV, allows whites to believe that they alone have contributed to the advancement of the world. The next time you stop at a traffic light, hear about heart surgery in a newborn, use prednisone(one of the most beneficial and widely used drugs that have changed the practice of medicine in all diseases from asthma to arthritis to lupus and on and on), use an abacus, wash yourself with soap(clean yourself on a regular basis or take a bath), read about the economics of a fledgling nation, earliest successful attempts at neurosurgery and the germ theory of disease long before europeans and American doctors thought about washing their hands-think color. The reason TV only produces and directs programs that show white heroes, scientists, mathematicians, engineers, historians; and shows only black people using drugs and committing crime(even though the facts are now being shown as to who is using and dealing drugs and how communities are preferentially policed and statistics skewed) is to generate ignorance such as yours and your kind. This allows wealthy whites to steal millions, billions, and control everything you eat, see, think, believe, how you shop, what you watch on TV, what you fear, value, and eventually your most personal behavior will be controlled by the powers that be due to your ignorance and the stupidity you pass on to your offspring. Every day you make their job easier.

    You might want to care. This isnt a racial issue its a statistical fact. Now combine these facts with illegal immigration, jobless and crime rates and see what totals you come up with. Then see who is footing the bill.

    I believe its far past time for birth licenses and criminal charges for the irresponsible. Its clear that the problems of our society are generally based on these figures combined and caused by the former minorities themselves. With no natural checks and balances due to vote grabs by the Dems, these numbers will inflate drastically over the next 20yrs, creating a far greater burden on all of our resources, personal, national and global.

      Footing the bill implies one has the money. Pundits like to point out that the top ten percent pay 90 percent of the taxes, but fail to mention they have 90 percent of the wealth. the top one percent has 40% of the wealth by themselves. That being said, they will require you to pay for any shortcomings they're privileged not to pay.

    The real problem is not that fewer "white" children are being born; the problem is that the groups having the most children are the poor, the ignorant and the religious (the last two are a little redundant though I guess it is possible to be ignorant without being religious). Too few intelligent, self-sufficient people are having children leaving those few to carry the burden of future progress. I guess we need mindless consumers, but not for long. Greater effort should be made to educate the masses. An educated child is the best investment the world can make.

      Without birth control, planned parenthood (for family planning) or abortion the poor and minorities will continue to have more and more babies, they have no choice.. No one understands that these restrictive policies only effect the poor and minorities. People with money can afford contraception and will always have access to birth control and abortions – if abortion is illegal they will fly wherever it's legal to have it, the poor are forced to have the baby – they arent given any options and our society has to support the kid and pay the medical bills for the birth. I think government funded contraception would be far cheaper. Even providing free condoms is a start – the $1 we would spend is nothing compared to the $100,000's of thousands each birth costs us, for the medical costs for the birth and support for 18 years!!! But this argument is far too logical for our country to adopt.

In fact, the number of black men who live long enough to collect social security is so low, that it would appear discriminatory or intentionally predisposed. Now, based on your comments, you seem to think blacks, indians (native and national) asians and orientals, as well as hispanics are only here in america to collect these services. Whites still have the vast majority of the power/politico and militarily, own more guns, and insure that poor housing districts fund schools which, by virtue, remain also poor.

        You are already getting it. Whites have been getting the most welfare benefits since the beginning, this is not news. Now Medicaid benefits are being handed out to 17 million white suburbanites who own homes. When the facts come out, what you believe is very different from what is. Most drug use is among white teens vs "black " teens and richer teens use the most in this group. There was a time when Jews, Italians, and Spanish were not considered white. The designation was changed to allow them benefits that were once available to whites only-GI benefits, subsidized housing, government jobs, preferential treatment in all sectors and more lenient treatment in the courts. So if you give up your "white" status, you will be sacrificing a lot-better schools, fiirst calll to jobs, higher pay, safer neighborhoods when NIMBY policies are considered, police turning a blind eye to crime, better medical care by a system that has been called discriminatory by the AMA itself, and others too numerous to mention. The grass is not greener on the other side. And to the woman who called ignorant and their own victims- history shows who was getting the hand up and the hand out.based on skin color. these policies are still in effect today. You are not where you are because of the virtue of your white skin, but because of it, in a country that began out of racist policies and thrives on it with fear being used as the vehicle.

        Across a large swath of Africa, the percentage of the adult population infected with HIV has reached 25%. That certainly is up there with other "plagues", antibiotics and modern medicine notwithstanding. We just haven't quite reached the population threshold that corresponds to our level of technology this time around. If you think the present rates of fertility and the rates at which we are consuming energy are sustainable, you're living in a fool's paradise.

        We've already reached the point in the USA where the price of food tracks very closely to the price of energy. We won't run out of energy all at once; it will just become increasingly expensive, and therefore, so will food. Sooner or later, the population will have bred itself out of resources.

Her mother, my aunt, has 9 kids by 6 different men ranging for over 30 to her youngest who is 8, some of her kids are white, some are mixed. She has also never worked a single job in her life either. Her two oldest sons are in jail for a long time (both black), her youngest son (white) is the only adult child who has stayed out of trouble and works (so far he's the only white one to be of age). She has a few more underage kids at home, white ones, so hopefully they will follow their white brother's footsteps and not their black siblings.

      I use to get so mad at whites who made racist remarks. Then I moved to the city and got out of my small all white town and see how blacks act. A majority of them act worse than animals. I've only ran across a few civilized ones, and I see them all the time. Now I understand why they are looked down upon.

Do this so we can try to be somewhat preemptive on the fact that in all likelyhood that is the case with many of these children regardless of race and that we will have to support them and their immature teenage parents with our tax dollars for the next 18 years.....and likely longer as I see a trend amongst the children of teenage parents to make the same mistakes themselves when they reach that age.

  89. Hidden Truth

    Before everone old and racist starts inciting a race war, or all the young minorities climax too much, something you all need to realize that this forshadows not only the eventual end of the white race in the us, but the eventual end of race period.

    The fact is the vast majority of whites mixing are doing it with blacks and vice versa. With their being 4 times as many full whites as full blacks in the us, by the time the full white race is decimated so will the full black race too. The black numbers are deceiving as the number of full blacks has dropped significantly but mixed race children have jumped. It is fact that most mixed race people don't pick that on the census, they mark black most of the time.
    What they are covering up is that this is the slow genocide of the black race too.
    By the time the white are all mixed so will all the black be, and then we will have just all people with brown hair and brown eyes, and bye bye diversity.

    Are we seriously, seriously, still counting a "half" minority child as the minority? Are they not, also, still, half "white"?

    The insanity is in the categorization.

      Have you ever seen mixed race people who are half White?

      Their Whiteness is almost always unrecognizable.

        My son is half black... but no on will ever look at him as a half white kid. They will always see him as a black kid plain and simple. I could care less either way. To me he's a kid. Plain and simple.

        Well, if you classify "white" as a collection of recessive genes, when you mix recessive and dominant genes together, then the dominant genes are going to be more noticeable. If populations are able to migrate and mix, the dominant genes are going to end up being more prevalent, by definition. What labels you chose to attach to this is up to you, and to society.

      Whenever a child is of mixed races very rarely does the child look white. That is why they are considered a minority. What is white features do you see in Obama? I don't see any and he is half white.

      I'm mixed with Northern looking Europeans and Amerindians, I am light complected with black hair and dark brown eyes. The racial classifications are confusing as a maze. However I always check "White" (have almost no Amerindian culture left in our family) and "Hispanic."

    Obama is thrilled, I'm sure. His voter base is growing. Whites stand no chance of being treated decently in Obama's America, except if they happen to be on welfare . . .

    Why do whites always say blacks and Latinos get more benefits than they do? The facts speak for themselves. As a percentage blacks and Latinos get more. In raw numbers whites get more. Mean what you say by saying what you mean.

      The difference is, whites grow up seeing their parents working and they expect to do the same themselves. Blacks and hispanics, a good number of them anyway, grow up seeing their parents getting welfare and expect to do the same themselves. More blacks and hispanics try for benifits. With whites, its an embarrasment to live off the government and is a last resort, not for all, but for alot. Its every day norm for blacks and hispanics. I was at Wal Greens the other day behind two black girls who were talking in their loud ghetto voice about getting some ice cream and dr pepper with their food stamp card. If it was me, I would be horrified if I had to use one and someone saw. They had no shame. That is the difference.

        It's all Jewish brainwashing by the media. Whites are not the enemy of blacks and blacks are not the enemy of whites. We are all being destroyed by the Jewish elite and their background handlers in the Roman Catholic Church. Do some research instead of calling me a conspiracy nutjob like lazy people in denial do and you will see that's where the money trail goes all the way back to the Vatican.

    I'd be interested to know how many of the "minorities" are mixed race.

    I'm suprised so many people are flipping out over this. This is a good thing, all the colors and ethnicities in the world will mix together in America to create a distinct future Super Race of Americans. Hundreds, maybe thousands of years from now as the other country's have rampant medical problems from inbreeding and their pointless ethnic wars, our Super Race of Americans will be genetically superior being comprised of all the other races to ever exist. Who knows, maybe they will develop super powers too, lol.

    The American Government's classification of "Race" propagates Racism.

    Ethnicity would be a better demographic than skin colour or historical nationalities. (are those words too big for you?)
