(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."
It has to do with 19th century definitions of race and what does "white" mean? Many African Americans and Asians have a high percentage of European ancestors, but they are not considered to be "white" even if they have blonde hair and blue eyes.
It's not the math it's the fact that the Census Bureau, school applications and a lot of other forms instigate racism by suggesting that you choose a side which amounts to choosing a team. Some will argue that it's about distributing more money to certain races but that is another argument.
The census authors may think it's okay because the number comes from how we perceive ourselves. The authors may not be directly responsible for defining the categories of race but no matter how old the terms "minority" and "majority"
are, the terms are meant to compare whites to non-whites. We're supposed to think that is not racist?
More Diverse? I think not. it simply points out that there's less whites and more whoever is the majority these days.
So now here is the question. Does Affirmative Action benefit whites now instead? Because if they eliminate it now that whites are a minority, that would absolutely be racism.
Ive always been against affirmative action because it is racism. It hurts the community by not hiring qualified individuals and yet hiring unqualified individuals, simply by the color of their skin. That is the very definition of racism. Someone should be hired due to their abilities REGARDLESS of color. But now that whites are a minority , it is equally as racist to eliminate the program. (even though it never should've existed)
Diversity is Good! Maybe the more diverse our population gets the more tolerance people will have for one another.
Actually more diversity = less tolerance.
Did you know Manny Pacquiao was banned from a mall in So. Cal because he said he can NOT support gay marriage because his Roman Catholic faith forbids it?
The irony police have been notified that someone was banned for having an opinion... he was banned in the name of diversity. lol
More diversity = less tolerance.
What a ridiculously misleading headline!! White babies would still make up (by far) the largest percentage per group of any race born. When compared to all others combined, they would be less. So, nothing has really changed....
Maybe the minority men and women serving in the military can teach you a thing or two about self sacrifice for this country?
Sounds like no more affirmative action now.
so what"s the big deal if the white babies are minority? i far has i am concern, we will have less racists in america like we have now with the right wing republican and the racists tea party. look at racists romney and bachman, this country and world will be a better place without some more racists.
Looks like you will be in the minority ! A rightwing minority moron !
I live in a community that has a lot of lower income black families and believe me they do live differently!! If they don't have get good parents that motivate and encourage them to get and educated, you won't have ones that are interested in voting much less running for office. So nothing much will change
Wow, using bigotry to fight "racism". Amazing.
Only minorities are on welfare??? Incoherent bigoted posts...quite annoying.
Why do you say it's slipping away? It's the rich white men who run this country. I't the rich white men running it into the ground.
Someday soon, the majority will all be "mutts" , and that will be a great day for the USA.
We will united by our freedoms and rewarded by merit without predjudice to race or skin color.
I just hope we still will be able to get authentic ethnic food.
Nope. Even in Puerto Rico and Brazil (large amounts of racial mixing) you still have racism and colorism.
Even within ethnic groups there is still color based bigotry – I know I was shocked the first time I heard a black person disparage another for being "dark," but I have found over the years that it is commonplace for lightskinned blacks to ridicule those of a darker shade. Silly raciest than I must be, I assumed that they were all the same and treated each other with dignity. I'm glad I grew out of that foolishness.
Uh, CNN, that headline should be "FEWER white babies born".
Thank you, Steve – Dallas! CNN, shame on you. Writing is your job. At the very least, try to get the grammar right. I expect a higher standard from you.
Very well put! Most Americans understand we are ALL Americans regardless of our hue...sad for some people...they may never get there and live a dysfunctional life even though they may not admit or even know it.
At least in about 30 years all the racists will be dead or too old to matter and race will no longer be even a topic for discussion.
FreddieK. White women are the biggest beneficiaries of Aff. Action. Look it up. Sorry.
The U.S. census needs to get out of 19th century colonial thinking mindset. Hispanic is not a color. You can record and report on skin color OR on ethnic origin. But the two are not interchangeable. This kind of information would be thrown out of any peer reviewed scientific journal as just plain wrong. Just as Hispanics can be any skin color, so can an Asian, an African or an European. They could say there are more children being born to recent immigrants who came to the U.S. in the past decades. But then again you could say that about every decade in U.S. census history.
The census does classify if an individual is Hispanic and, if so, of which race. So they do not simply group them all together as a race.
I do not know why anyone puts stock in any of this. I know a bl ack fella who claimed to be white for many years. Even had it on his DL. I also know of some whi te folks that claim to be Hispan ic or bl ack so that they can get free bennies from the State, and GOvernment. If race is not supposed to matter why do we spend so much time and money tracking race. Could it be that it is in the GOvernments best interest to keep the races at each others throat? COuld it be that millions of federal dollars are wasted on paychecks, departments , and lobbying, and without racism those would all go away. For the most part most people do not care what race you are. the color of your skin is far more important to you, than to me.
Worried it will get better?
obama and his media minions blaming the rich for everything is a total disgrace from this president who was supposed to bring people TOGETHER, not push them apart...
fyi; the rich already pay their fare share and they pay for your share too for the bottom 50% who pay NOTHING.
I wonder how much george clooney pays in taxes? you think he has a tax shelter or 2?
It's easy to have lots of children when you know that someone else will pay for them. I guess that's what we get for trying to be responsible.
"Asians remain the fastest-growing minority racial group, with a 3% increase over last year’s population, to 18.2 million."
That trend will continue. With China's one child per family policy, those that can will come to the United States to have their second and third babies.
It is the other way around. The Chinese come here to go to school/work have a baby or two then go back to chine with the children then have their 1 child per family in China. It seems that children born outside of China do not count towards the 1 child per family. I got this from a few Chinese couples. Yes they were planing on having some children while in the US then going back home to have their last child. The children born outside of China will get to choose their citizenship when they turn 18.
Asians of Chinese decent make up less than a quarter of that population. There are almost as many Filipinos and Indians. Unless the population of Chinese descent is having 7 children per woman and the rest is having 1, the One-Child policy is irrelevant or at least not a significant player in in this phenomenon.
AWESOME>>>SO this being the case then my daughters now being the minority can get the help minorities get for college! If not that is a civil rights violation and those people are racists!
The flip side is that on average families with fewer children tend to be more affluent. As a consequence the higher reproduction rate of latinos is not entirely an advantage for them.
Its a known historical fact that every majority group has villianized the one they see coming after them. Scotts, italians, english, french, Jews have all had thier share of hatered while all hating blacks. So when every european ethnic group finally became "whites", its now hispanics that are bad. As a non-white, non-hispanic natualized citizen of this country, all I do is love this place for what it is and for what it has given me. And when you love something, you are loyal to it. You protect it. People who come to this place, given that a few are bad apples, mostly come here for opportunites that this place has to offer and can't thank their stars enough for that. We as Americans, need not be scared of each other but instead extend our hand to our fellow Americans in time of need. Believe me, everything else will fall into place. Fear and hatered on the other hand will only destroy US.
Well said. I admire your thoughts of unity.
Refreshing post. Let's push the unity agenda wherever we are....after all we are all AMERICANS!
by the way, 95 % of blacks voting for obama is not racist? but if whites dont vote for him, they are, right? why has there not been ONE story about this double standard in the mainstream press? where are the real liberals?
I guess 95% of blacks who voted for Clinton was racist too, ha?
Yeah they love to ignore that fact. If Barack was a Repub and blacks voted 95% then maybe they would have an argument. But screaming is easier than researching.
If you are Black and vote for Obama you are not a racist. If you are White and vote for Romney then you are a racist. Strange how that works.
You're not thinking clearly. First of all, you meant to say 95% of the black vote goes to Obama. Obviously it is wrong to say 95% of black vote for Obama, when no where near that % vote at all. So you can easily cut that number in half...maybe more. Im sure he there were better choices than mccain, and mittens, you might not feel that way. I'm black, and I will vote when I actually see someone I like. So far in life I have not.
tell me maff, can you honestly say that the obama you voted for in 08 has lived up to his brand? is he a uniter or a divider? there is ample evidence, empirical fact, to answer this question, but I want to see what you think....
if obama were white and had the same exact rhetoric , do you think 95% of the black vote would go to him? by the way, were it not for white voters, obama would have lost in 08.
BS, most of them are too attached to their lifestyle and having kids would interfere.
kinda like england, where the most popular baby name is now mohammed.
way to go liberals...anything to try to make them like us....
and a president who loves stoking the divide, the anger, the tension...why? because he thinks it gets him votes...the hell with red america, blue america, were all america...what mullarkey from him..and you believed it! hahahahahah
THe comments on here are so depressing. I know lots of different people of different races and some are poor and some are rich. I have lived in the South, Southwest and Northeast. I have seen people of all colors fail to care for their children and abuse the welfare system including some of those who rich. I have seen people of all colors work hard to care for their families and not use or abuse the welfare system, some of them very. very poor. The fact that so many peopl (based on the comments here) believe that whites take care of their own and dont use or abuse the welfare system while minorities are all poor breeders milking the welfare system makes me sick. I am ashamed of you all.
Education does make a difference.
at least people have a chance to stay open-minded
If you were my neighbor, I would protect my children from an angry racist like you and move. People like you are what is wrong with America. YOU don't have/know the facts, dude.
Best post of the day!
I don't know what's the average age of people who commend on this board.
But we younger generation (early 20's) don't care about race. We have friends that play basketball with, go to concert with, study with.
I don't see their color. At all
Very glad to hear this. I was raised in the 70's to not see color and am so glad that is becoming the norm. Long, long overdue.
Then you blind. Cause they are after everything you or your parents own.
Phil you and your parents don't have anything I want. So rest easy.
We deserve everything that's gonna happen to us.
Most sound minded Americans understand that we are all Americans! Those who live in fear are at greatest risk of being bigots!
another self hating apologist...i hate weak people like you..
Pathetic. How many 'whites' who think they are white actually have mixed races in their genetic heritage? Statistics indicate 97% of people who have white skin and NOT genetically pure Scandinavians.
Great this must make the deomocrats mouths just water, fresh meat for the taking as its getting more difficult to get dead people to vote!!! LOL
There goes America. Does this mean we are going to be like Mexico or Central America or South Africa in 25 yrs time?
Poor people, regardless of race, always have a higher rate of children than the rich, this has been true throughout human history. The white Americans of today are the desendents of the poor classes that overflowed the populations of every European country in the 17th, 18th 19th and 20th centuries. They came here because they were poor, had large familes and were stuck at the bottom in the Old Country.
It's funny to watch everyone mouthing off about skin color and how important it is. Wake up people, skin color is an evolutionary adaptation to a lack of sunlight. The genetic diversity in skin is FAR LESS than the genetic diversity between two siblings! Typical lack of education in the US leads to the standard uninformed opinions.
You take a group of black people and leave them to breed in a northern country and in a few thousand years their skin will BECOME WHITE. Take a bunch of white people and drop them off in Africa to breed for a few thousand years and their skin will evolve to BECOME BLACK.
What an unbelievable lack of education. Pathetic.
maybe these people should try watching TED sometimes.
Mostly they might live with a very one-dimensioned mind.
Again, as you said, all we can rely on is education
Great post! Let's celebrate diversity...and the fact that we are one race...HUMAN!
You forgot to mention DNA. As the population mixes so does the DNA. Dominate genes will take over recessive genes. You don't have to wait thousands of years for this transformation.
Way to go all u out of touch liberals trying to help the diadvantaged ignoring the current state of unemployment forb americans born in this country. hell lets just give it al away close our borders NOW. ban immigration.
and I feel fine!
It's changing demograhics and no real surprise. As a white person, I'm not the least bit alarmed because this is simply the historical trend. Some whites, especially conservatives, will go into major panic mode about this and try to use it as a political wedge; that's inevitale as well.
Keep telling us why you guys are mad.
This will only solidify Social Darwinism is correct
The Mayans were only off a few months!!!!
Man , just reading this is laughable some of yall need a hug lol.!!!!
No worries. In the not too distant future there will be only race. Beige. That's probably a good thing because it's the only way to kill racism.
Don't worry, Evelyn. We will then find another way to be bigots – perhaps religious beliefs, or economic class?
The majority of babies born in Calif. are hispanic. Our sacramento's democrats gave it away long ago. Its not safe here anymore. Mexifornia.
Spot on. Because I have seen this happen myself. Yes there is some minorities that do work very hard, but does seem like a vast majority do take advantage when they can get away with it. The only problem with the card bit, there will be no money for you and me, now that is racist...
Please check your statistics, there is just as much fraud in all races. People are people and will attempt to "get over" in almost all cases.
Well, yes there are fewer white births in comparison to other races if you lump ALL other races into one large group. However, if you seperate them by race, there are still more white births and they are not in the minority. Based on that calculation you could say any individual race has less births then ALL its counters combined. – Seriously people, get a grip.
FACT this country is great because of the contributions of many races but especially free labor for centuries...the contributions of all races will go on...the sky is not falling you will see that. On a side note...it was George Bush who almost destroyed this economy...FACT
Its sad to see so many blinded by their own color and ingorance. These people are the weak minded and inferior, and forever damned to be the victim. Just keep blaming others for your lack of motivation and intellect.. Let me break it down for you dimwits. It doesn’t matter what color you are. The dumbest are out breeding the smartest. Do the math idiot. What does that equal? I really hope you have the intellect to understand what that means long term. Do you need pictures? To disregard the stupidly obvious facts is ridiculously blind with no common sense.
but what you don't understand is that the wealth now will be passed down to fewer people and those people will have more power than those who currently have it.
Yeah, that worked great in Zimbabwe.
Obama is noy a liberal. The country is going th s h i ... because of 8 years of undeclared war started be the repubes who have
no solution but MORE WAR
The solution is quit giving away my hard earned money to those that never worked for it. And to stop giving my tax money to people who never paid any taxes. Really simple.
So many people talk about democrat and republican like that matters. The problem is the same problem is has always been. It is about the "haves and have not's". I can easily sit in Congress and give my vote on a tax increase or whatever when I make 200k a year and get to expense everything to the tax payers. Both sides do that. The democrats have been roughly the same for decades. The republicans have actually become more liberal than the days of Regan. If Congress really wanted this country to change the line item veto would of passed. That way none of this super long bills would have totally unrelated earmarks and laws placed into them. If Congress is going to vote on healthcare then vote on healthcare not healthcare with earmarks for corporations or states added in. It has and will be for a while about money. Plan and simple. Both sides are working to get reelected not to help the American people.
it's a free country
you can be whoever you want to be
Whites in population: 223,553,265
Whites on welfare: 11,661,000
Percent of whites on welfare: 5%
Blacks in population: 38,929,319
Blacks on welfare: 11,362,000
Percent of blacks on welfare: 29%
Math: it's so racist!
Correct me if I am wrong, I do believe the arguement that math is racist has been made at one point in time. The tests are scewed or something of that nature.
Yes, tests of math and reading, the most basic of skills in modern society, find that blacks score lower than whites, in fact lower than any other race. Therefore the tests are racist, math is racist, and reading is racist. Everything is racist. Or maybe the races are not really equal, and that's just a myth that people are being brainwashed into believing.
Just like we live in a supposed racist society because there are more blacks in prison than college!!! We have to blame something for this......it couldnt be their own fault could it??
More Blacks in prison then in college? Of my 450 Facebook friends, 200 of whom are Black, more then half has graduate degrees while the others are in college for undergrad. I highly doubt I'm the only young Black woman in America under 35 who speaks a few languages, has several degrees, and knows similar Blacks of the same caliber. Maybe I just happen to know all the smart, middle to upper-class Blacks in America *shrug*. And, the government didn't pay for my education nor did they pay for my children, since I haven't had any yet. They also haven't had to pay for my abortion(s), since I haven't had that either. Stereotypes are fun!
You should factor in the head start we whites had.
One thing I can say in response to that is that there has been no change at all in the difference between white and black scores on the SAT since 1990, so for 20 years. That is after all kinds of program to help blacks, from Head Start to free lunch, to affirmative action to special tutoring, etc. So it doesn't seem like those programs are helping even a little bit.
You think 20 years is la ong time, do yah? You must be very young.
Cite your sources, please!
You forgot to factor the head start we whites had.
At one time welfare was a whites only program. No one but whites could participate. Now everyone is allowed. Welfare should be eliminated in its current form. If you are not putting into the system then you should not be taking from it. That is not racial, that is economics. If I am working two jobs and still can't make it, then I should get some assistance, if and only if I can PROVE where all money is going. Nice cars, cell phones, cable TV are all "extra". Food, water, shelter and in this day and age the Internet are must haves. By the way I am black, so before someone thinks I am some racist jerk, think again. Everyone needs some help sometime, but exhaust all your other options before asking for a handout.
If you require welfare recepients to verify where their income is going, then we really should do the same of the rich. If they say they need tax cuts in order to create jobs, we, as citizens, must verify that the only thing the rich does with any tax cuts is towards jobs. We cannot keep subsidizing the rich by giving them free money when we have a massive foreign debt created by the rich moving jobs overseas. The rich move jobs overseas, then somehow get others to agree that the foreign deficit is all of America's problem. No, it is not!!!! Either move those jobs back on American soil for Americans, or start getting taxed more!!!
Where I'm from I notice a lot of white guys having kids with minority women, so that is one factor right there.
must be a real fine area you live in!
No poor areas of all races??? Really??? Don't let the joke be on you...
I LOVE IT!
Ok, since I ruffled some folks feathers and people wanted facts while calling me racist...here you go:
While blacks comprise roughly 12% of the population they consume over 33% of the social services. So sure you can make claims that by sheer volume whites receive more benefits, but as I stated before, minorities consume a greater percentage when compared to the amount they contribute. There's your "facts"......
these are unedcuated liberals
they will never understand your statement
(Assuming you have a valid source and the information is correct...) Ok, so does that make black people inherently good or bad? No. Does that mean that the people on welfare don't actually need the extra help? No. Does that make people that look different than you any less worthy of respect, because a greater proportion of their "group" gets more help from the government? No!
I think you have centuries confused...pricing of humans actually evolved...got it?
yes I do
but i can clearly see you didn't
Asians are a people with a lot of wisdom
that is why they are so successful and others continue to mire in poverty
Isn't it time that we start requiring parents to be licensed and to be held accountable?
You must have a license to operate a motor vehicle, to go fishing or hunting, or to have a pet—yet a person can bring a human life into this world, with little, if any, accountability.
A majority of poor and uneducated had no choice in the matter of being poor and uneducated.
Been tried. In China. Hasn't work too well for them either.
We're not China.
I am going to go pull my kids out of school right now! You don't need to go anymore little Johnny, you see the gubment going to take care of you now! Here is your new card, it is called a "race card." If anyone says you have to do anything, just pull it out!
I see the truth hurts. You see, I am educated, after watching many years of this go on!
truth hurts huh?
I understand the point you are trying to make but you are wrong. There is a higher number of Whites on welfare, but Blacks are way higher as a percentage of welfare recipients.
Time to unite Scandinavia and make it a superpower. There was a reason for moving up there. Hmm I wonder why. Delve into the ancient past and you'll know why.
Wow. That could be the most petty grammar criticism I've ever heard.
I think it's high time they stop calling whites the majority because we aren't anymore. We are now the minority.
I don't feel like the minority
i still have all the power and my life hasn't changed!
I think you are forgetting how this country was built...centuries of forced labor...centuries of a head start...let's work to make this a more perfect union....
stop with the old whites had centuries of a head start. africa has had plenty of of time to get it together as well as mexico but its their own culture that holds them back. they still act barbaric.
The people who pay all the taxes can have less children because of all the taxes they have to pay. And those that don't work and pay no taxes sit around having children to get more money from the government–money that does not always to to the children. So, does this surprise us White Folk....heck no! I've worked my entire life, so now us white guys will be the minority and get paid back for all the work we've done all our lives. And the slugs??? Well, no more free-bees, there slacker!
I guess you have never been exposed to hard working minorities even those in the military...because if you had...you would have more respect...it's called a bubble....what you live in...
Get over it accept it move on. That's what the natives did. Accept that this country was taken by force. Accept that karmas coming back around. At least it didn't need war or violence.
I think you mean "except".
I think you'd better check your dictionary.
No, I think I'm good. I'm not talking about the first use of accept either... the second and third ones.
No I'm saying u need to accept
He's right, you're wrong. Perhaps you'd better check your dictionary.
I’m curious why you believe except was meant instead of accept? Let’s use a synonym for except – exclude and replace the instances of “accept”
“Get over it exclude it move on. That's what the natives did. Exclude that this country was taken by force. Exclude that karmas coming back around. At least it didn't need war or violence.”
It doesn’t even work as satire or irony. It’s just plain incorrect.
No, sorry, Mary's use of 'accept' is correct.
Craig: Accept that you're wrong.
if all this is true then shouldn't we stop calling them MINORITIES?
Blacks take care of themselves. Then blacks can get what they deserves. whites will get NO more free labor.
No, blacks are the child race that are taken care of the adult white race through welfare and affirmative action.
These statistics are misleading. Its not accounting for mixed race children. They count those who are born from a mixed family as the minority factor. If you are part Caucasian part African american then they lump that person into the African american column and not both. All this could mean is that children are being born more of a mixed race family. Remember as long as you have a minority blood line some where in you, you are automatically a minority in the statistics eye.
clean blood here!
Good, Steve – we'd like to isolate the DNA of bigots.
Some people on here really need to learn if you don't have anything constructive to say, don't say anything at all. ' I would love to believe your parents raised you better than that. Look at the hate within yourselves.
Must have interns on the job.
There is enough stereotyping to go around for all races...this happens to be an overblown stereotype....that is commonly used to attack other male races...it's old n stale...
"non white or Hispanic"??? The media loves to spread bad information. No wonder the public is confused. Hispanic is not a race, there are white Hispanics. The vast majority are mixed and are still mostly white.
Gee, there is a surprise.
Does this mean I get to riot and go on big marches too?
Yep. And feel free to demand reparations for the hardships of your great great great great great great great great grandparents. They had it pretty hard and it's worth millions to you. You deserve it.
DAvid, try again. How about the GRAND-parents who couldn't drink from the same fountain, etc...
If you are oppressed you will have every right to resist...and I think it will be the right thing to do!
I am against anyone hating anyone. I do not believe it was right for the Black Panthers to have started their group in response to the KKK. I believe we should all love each other. I think that your video was sad, as was my video. I get so upset when hatred like this comes out, but not all minorities are like this. I for one am not. I love everyone – even those who hate me because that is what Jesus wants us to do.
Duggar family have 19 kids. Octomom have 8 kids. In America.... you have lots of white people. Super Rich White people!!!
LOL, you really will not do that, you know.
No he would not, because he knows his worth and his role in society is anything but being a leach
I feel sad for you that you were never exposed to hard working minorities e.g those in the military...those in science etc....I wonder why you choose to ignore that...btw there are more minorities who work that are on welfare...
I served 8 years in the military and they still want their protected status....they pull the race card if passed over for promotion....I am getting my card laminated and ready today!
So, now I'm a minority and I'm sick and tired of the black man trying to keep me down.
See how far that gets you.
Then they can fight the hoards of Muslims that are breeding in Europe.
Whites being minority does not make blacks the majority. There are other races in this world, some more focused on contributing something positive than bringing up "us against them".
Welcome to the Third World.
there are more black babies named White- than white babies named Black- if that trend continues according to mathematicians, in the year 2075= The majority of Hispanic babies will be born free
america is done..........
Well, America is STOLEN LAND from people of color. KARMA is something else.
Every land has been stolen many times over from someone else. Why is it more of a crime when people with light skin do it? People of color have stolen each others land and still do. Racist
Craig: I think the difference is whites have stolen land and resources on a massive scale. There literally isn't a continent in the world that whites haven't stolen land and either turned its people into slaves and servants or plunged their country into chaos.
So? That's what happens when you win! You get the spoils!
....only if the ignorant (your name here) remain.
Am sad for you that you have never been exposed to the new America...affluent minorities whose kids are attending college and whose parents work very hard...I think it makes you feel better to bury your head in the sand...am sure you are also not exposed to the strong minority military families whose fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters work hard to keep you safe...this is AMERICA! Beautiful America! It's just not you doing well...you just choose not to see it...
Look at Obama. He is half white/half black and he considers himself BLACK and look BLACK just like Will SMith who BOTH parents are black.
People have been treating him like a black man his entire life, it's only fitting that he think of himself as such.
Interesting point if the offspring between two blacks and one black one white looks the same. That means the black gene is dominant, since his "white" traits are not visible at all.
MinnesotaDemonizer I am just making a point that minorities are not the only ones on welfare. That is all. I am a minority and am not on welfare. It hurts me to read comments that show hatred towards myself. That is all. I got my MAC computer from Apple. I also have a Masters Degree in Opertaional Management from the College of Engineering ( I wont name the state). I graduated with a 3.8. I am one smart minority who is NOT on welfare.
Well, except.... Canada
I hope there not thinking they can come in this country and live the American dream ,have 10 children , drive a $30,000 car, cable tv, cell phone ,because if your not making $100,000 a year hang up forever ,turn it off,take the bus and pull it out.because it just don't fly in this country like it mite have before.
Are you bragging or complaining?
Monah – Let me rephrase. I RECALL AN ARTICLE take the IF out. so again lets post those percentages...White people get welfare too believe it or not.
Wow, i wish they would so you could see that it's not just minorities. SMH I am a married black woman. My husban and i work everyday and we dont receive any assistance. Please stop with the profiling. it doesnt apply to everyone. I cant stand any of em, no matter the race. i work and struggle to get what i have and u pay $80 for a 4 bdroom house and get free food and medical care. something is wrong with that.
Perhaps it’s time to require parents to obtain a license.
After all, you must have a license to operate a motor vehicle, go fishing or hunting, or to have a pet—yet a person can bring a human life into this world, with little, if any, accountability.
Of course I realize this will never happen. Our politicians (both parties) must do the popular thing and must avoid making difficult decisions, and they work for the lobbyists, who pay them handsomely.
Soooo wouldn't whites now be referred to as the minority?
Whites aren't a minority yet, just amongst that demographic. But they will be a minority eventually if patterns continue. I just think it's too sad that we can't all just be people yet.
The "Whites" have been taking advantage of minoritiies for numerous centries and now it is backfiring on them. They operated on a "good ol boy" network and held decent jobs, health, and education opportunities from minorities. Our Government was forced to create federal laws to protect minorities. Now they are complaining about their taxes going to pay for welfare, free healthcare etc... Remember God Don't like UGLY!!!
Our government is made up primarily of White people, so if they are the ones "protecting" minorities, White people must have wanted it to be that way. And I really beleive the whole narrative of the government helping minorities when the condition of Blacks has done nothing but gotten worse over the last few decades.
the article mentions white babies being minority, nothing about whites suddenly ending up on the dole, besides there are more poor whites than all minorities combined, and whites still control 99% of the wealth, until 20 years from now when the new majority?LOL votes wealth away and we truly become a third world nation, " and she answered Jesus and said, true but the dogs eat of the crumbs that fall from the masters table"
This can be attributed to the fact that every other nationality wants a piece of the "American dream", which is rapidly dying due to the numbers of uneducated people sneaking into this country and soaking up the government assistance. Congress needs to address the problem the 14th Amendment and it's misinterpretation has wrought. If we do not repeal or change the idea that anyone born on American soil is an automatic American citizen, it will only get worse and America will die. No other country in the world offers this kind of citizenship, and every other country takes advantage of it. If Congress refuses to change this Amendment, then it's time for the citizens of the U.S. to call for a Continental Congress and get it changed.
agree the liberal picks and chooses which laws are archaic and out of date
Horus – I am a minority, and I am NOT of foodstamps, NOT on public housing, AND I am a single mom. I work my butt of to provide for my family, AND I have two college degrees. Not all minorities are this way, and why does everyone have to say "black people" We are not the only minorities around here. I cannot stand people being so hateful... WHY do people have to be so hateful?
White women running behind men of color and their children are often going to look darker and take on the race of color idenity.
Yes, please let's cite the percentages. Right now all you have said is "If" which means you really don't know. Why not research it first and then you could tell us the actual percentage.
So was this you in the video or your boyfriend. He looks to me like a pu$$y.
Sure lets talk about percentages. Here they are:
Since there still more whites in America than any other race it is safe to say that more white people receive government aid than any other race.
Wow, I can't believe the racist comments on this blog. Is this really what american has come to?? If so, we are not the moral leaders of the world anymore, we are no better than trailer trash. What ever happened to the beauty of the melting pot.
While calling people "trailer trash" isn't racist your are stereotyping a lot of people who live in them.
I so agree with you. I CANNOT believe all the racist things that are being said on this blog. People should be ashamed of themselves. I frankly do not care what color a person's skin is. It is what is inside that matters. I have known some really good white people and I have known some really bad white people. The same goes for black people. I have known some really good ones and I have known some really bad ones. Your race or color is not what makes you a good or bad person. It really saddens me to read all the racist remarks. I thought America was better than that. I only care if a person is legal or not, not what race they are. We have to do something about the illegals, not fight amongst ourselves. That is what is going to ruin our great nation. They are draining our resources and turning this country into a third world country. We are citizens of the United States need to band together and get something done about this massive problem.
