(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 would like to see a crime rate map superimposed over this population map.
I like a mix. All races can be cute.
Most aren't. Especially after age 5.
All this means is that in 50 years or so, this 'race' stuff won't matter and our kids will be better for it.
You mean the "kids" not involved in crime?
I mean kids who will be raised without hate-filled parents and who will become better people than their hate-filled parents are. If the shoe fits...
Ya I'm sure racism will just suddenly disappear, do these l1btards really believe this? Does it look like it's fading away now?
Does this make me a wigger?
That is the silliest headline I have ever seen CNN.com publish. There are more white babies born in this country than any other ethnicity. It is simply that their numbers no longer total more than 50%.
legalize gay marriage. no more babies. problem solved.
There is no need to publish such a data because it just creats unnecessary discussion about races.
But... that's what CNN does. That's practically all that they do.
Racism and racists in general will continue to discriminate right up until the point where the discriminated will feel highly justified to discriminate right back as they assume the majority. But racists are too stupid to realize this, and they will be crying the loudest when it happens.
Naw, we'll probably just have a race war.
I THINK THEY SHOULD MAKE THE MINORITIES PAY CASH FOR HAVING BABIES.
NO MORE WELLFARE FOR NON WHITE MOMS AND CHILDREN.
THAT WOULD STOP THIS MADNESS IN HURRY!!!!!!!!!!
Hahahahahahahaha!! Man...Scared much? Human Nature is RAW..
...here comes the welfare thing again...
You do mean YOUR madness, right?
Just a hunch but now would probably be a good time to start some new prison construction. Sorry.
Now whites are technically a minority can they start pulling the race card with no fear of retribution like the other races in the U.S?
TOO MANY NON WHITE BABIES ARE BEING BORN IN AMERICA.,
WE WHITE DUDE NEED TO GET ON THIS WELLFARE BABY MAKING FACTORY GAME SOON OR WE WONT HAVE ANY WHITE WOMEN TO MAKE BABIES WITH!!!!!!!!!
MAKE THOSE BABIES AND MAKE THE TAXPAYER SHELL OUT FOR THEIR UPKEEP LIKE TH E MINORITIES DO!!!!!!!
THIS IS WHITE CRISIS..
SAVE YOURSELVES AND HAVE ANOTHER BABY.,
GET ON MEDICADE WELLFARE FOOD STAMPS WHATEVER YOU GOT TO DO BUT START HAVING WHITE BABIES!!!!!!!!!
maybe you should take your medication.
you have a good idea , unfortunatly it's not possible , see i have a job and pay taxes, and for some silly reason that disqualifies me from recieving government support
What makes you think "white women" want to be with white men after seeing an explosion of minority guys? LOL. White men are plain and simple boring. There are more attractive minority guys than white men.
Besides, most educated white men are going after minority women anyway. So you are basically left with dumb white dudes mating with dumb blondes.
It's very aparent by your post that you fall deeply into the last catagory on your moronic list there Lois.
I heard Big Macs make you sterile and fat. White people unite against McDonald's!!!
Don't worry white people, soon there will be an explosion of white / mexican babies. Ya see first they penetrated your borders, now they are gonna penetrate your wife and daughters. If you next child looks mexican, check out the gardener for he has been mowing your wifes lawn.
How come countries like EUROPE, RUSSIA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA can grow more and more WHITE PEOPLE?
Census say Grow more WHITE PEOPLE. How come you can't have TEN OR MORE WHITE KIDS in AMERICA?
You usually see OCTOMOM.
GROW MORE WHITE PEOPLE. WE NEED MORE WHITE PEOPLE. Census say it's federal emergency. Grow more white people.
Are you high? You aren't making any sense.
Europe is not a country. Besides Canada and Russia are generally cold in the winter and most white people are originally from and still live in colder climates.
The reason this is all happening is because al the smart people (whites) are using birth control to have the number of kids they know they can afford. The dumb people (everyone else) are breeding like rabbits and the tax payers are paying for their lack of concern for everyone else. Smart people are a dying breed because of this.
Totally agree. These types of people will drag this country down into another Mexico. Then all will be poor and over-taxed. Just the way the liberals like it.
We penetrated your borders, now we are gonna penetrate your wife and daughters. If you next child looks mexican, check out the gardener for he has been mowing your wifes lawn.
Whites are smarter because everyone started in africa and to become smarter you have to take risk to learn new things. so we moved north with not as much sun so we changed white and smarter but the people who didn't migrate and take a risk didn't learn anything new so they stayed black.
Your just plain old stupid and your post proves it.
Tell your wife I will be home by 9am and she better have my balony and cheese sandwich ready.
People who call others stupid, in writing, should at least be able to spell correctly. it's Bologna
And that is why the Native Americans proved superior to the European invaders, and were eventually able to push them back. Because they had farther to migrate from Africa.
Or crazy thoguht ... maybe its because there is more interacial dating going one and anything that isn't 100 percent white is always called the other race even tho the baby is both races ... its the ignorance and superiority complex of white people that decide, well if u aint 100 percent white, the blood line has been tainted and u are whatever else u are mixed with. All this means is there are more hybrids and possibly that people are more open minded.
The word 'minority' is misleading. In sociology the word denotes one's status and has nothing to do with the sheer number of people demographically. Whites will never be a minority in the socio-political sense; they still retain the highest level of status and income in this country. So no matter how many babies of color are born, to the extent that their social,, political and economic status remains behind, they will always be the "minority".
As per google search results of "Income patterns in United states" show some figures that the highest personal income group is the 'Asians'.
For social class -these seem to be divided in to 'Capitalists', etc and is not race based.
Reading all of these posts, it looks like the only people worried about this are the redneck bigots spewing their hatred.
I'm white and I couldn't care less about this
Would you care if you could get some free money?
No. There is no free money. I pay for it so it ain't free.
True, wish I could get a few more points on my applications or kicked to the top of the resume pile just becuase of my skin color.
So do we a) allow whites to file for minority status and get perks like SBA loan priority or b) remove the perks given to minorities?
Whites are generally the most successful and prosperous ethnic group in America.
Prosperity is the most powerful contraceptive in my opinion. Have they analyzed data where, irrespective of races and ethnicities, birth rates are instead broken down by income levels?
when the results are published that would be considered racist!
It's ironic that people who could support more children have fewer children. Not saying it's a bad thing. But it will lead to whites being out-bred.
as long as there is such a strict standard by whites as to who qualifies as white, this was inevitable. the one-drop rule gives all the advantage to non-whites. Loosen the standards and perhaps the demographic situation would not be so dire for you all.
If I have to hear African-American, Asian, Mexican etc. I want to be refered to as European or Caucasian. If I were to say that Yellow person needs to get an education I'd be wrong. But the White people are getting overrun.
I embrace all ethnicities and believe diversity makes us stronger – and I agree with you. It's akin to "reverse racism". We will all never truly be equal until everyone attempts to view and treat all people equally. Racism is racism regardless of the perpetrator.
go back to dunellen
I knew the end was in sight when the greatest rapper in the world was white and the greatest golfer in the world was black.
Glad to see someone else agrees with me on Violent J!
Eminem sucks, though, so that might cancel it out.
that is exactly what i was thinking.
This is because white people have to pay for their babies and support them as they grow up.
I believe welfare is also available to white people.
Just that white folks have more pride and have been taught to support yourself.
obama conned everyone in 08....
Not really when your other option was McCain/Palin.
Perfect reply. ;-)
I hate that people say white is not a color. HELLO!!!! Google 'are black and white colors and see what comes up. Chemists confirm that black IS a color and white is NOT a color. You cannot mix other colors to get white. These stupid 'people of color' statements need to disappear.
Uh...let me rephrase that answer I gave: 1. Black is not a color; a black object absorbs all the colors of the visible spectrum and reflects none of them to the eyes. 2. White is a color. White reflects all the colors of the visible light spectrum to the eyes.
Oh god, let the vitriolic comments start flying.
Can there be a White Entertainment Television (WET) network now or would that be considered racist?
Hah, I'm sure that would be considered 'racist' which is in and of itself racist.:P
What TV shows will you put on it.
I would say most channels are currently White Entertainment Television.
Trainwreck, I get that channel. Several, actually. I suggest you call your local cable company and request ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, Oxygen, Lifetime, VH-1....
i know you wanna be white so quit posting.
There are already plenty of "White" entertainment chanels:
Sure...you have MTV, LIFETIME, CMT, SHOPPING NETWORK, JUDGE JUDY :) Oh yeah, dont forget OPRAH.
They do, it's called the Histiry Channel...not a black person on it.
I thnk that keeping track of these numbers is in itself racist. Why are these manipulated figures so important to some people?
What makes you think these stats are manipulated?
Maybe the stats are not manipulated but the definitions certaily are; white people are pure white and all other races only need 1 eighth of that race to be called black, hispanic, etc. Consider that if to be "white" you only needed 1 eighth white blood how that would change things.
don't aks, don't tell
Please show me one single city, town, neighborhood, or street that is BETTER without whites. You can't.
The U.S. was great because of its people. It will fail in the future because of its "new" people.
i just wish we could have a good mix of all people in every city to preserve them
In America you usually see "WHITE WOMAN and BLACK" Couple....
Soon, We will see more Blake Griffin & kris humphries Culture.
Hey don't puke. But they play BASKETBALL very good. They can jump high. Plus, they are tall. It does matter if they look ugly.
The most common interracial couple by far are white men + asian women.
I'm all for it... Asian, Latino, and Asian Indian women are waaaaaaay too hot, and most are more intelligent than men. I say fill up the country with hot, smart women! I'd follow their rule... just sayin.
Very misleading link off of the front page "white babies now the minority". Being less than 50% of the total does not make a group a minority. By this defintiion, everybody is now a minority since no group consists of 50% or more of the births. White babies are only less than all other groups COMBINED.
A minority is any subgroup that does not form a numerical majority.
A numerical majority is more than half (50%) of some group.
Since white babies are not more than half (50%) of the current baby population (under 1 year of age) of the United States, white babies are not the numerical majority of babies.
White babies are a subgroup of current American as a whole. Since white babies are not a numerical majority, they are by definition a minority, a subgroup that does not form a numerical majority.
So all ethnic subgroups of the current population of American babies are minorities. No ethnic subgroup of babies forms a majority.
The crux of this is that if this trend continues, along with immigration by non-whites, white people will no longer be the ethnic majority in the United States. There will be no ethnic majority in the United States. Every ethnic subgroup in the United States will be a minority. White people will be a minority. Black people will still be a minority. Hispanics will still be a minority, Asians will still be a minority.
The current usage of the word "minority" as a reference to "non-whites" will become archaic and meaningless. When whites become a minority among many minorities, with not ethnic majority, the term minority could just as easily refer to whites as any other ethnicity.
Just so you know, this article's percentages are combining all the minorities ( African- American, Latino- American, Asia- American, etc.) into one group vs. the white majority. This still makes white a majority skin color in the United States. Nevertheless, the whole minority majority mumbo jumbo needs to go if we are ever going be able to progress further as a nation. WE ARE ALL AMERICAN no matter the color of our skin. God Bless. USA USA USA
Plurality, not majority.
White people are still the majority in the United States. Non-hispanic whites form 63.7% of the United States population.
I bet you know the blacks and Hispanics and every other race will be yelling no special treatment for the minority whites. Wait and see. The Liberals will insist that whites can not be a minority.
I'm sure you're exactly right Wade. We can thank both the Democrates AND the Republicans for just giving lip-service about securing our southern border for the past 100 years. That is why I'm unafiliated now. They both have failed us and caused this situation. We need to clean out Washinton DC and start over like Libia. That is our ONLY hope. Greed has destroyed America.
Awe, you guys are cute! You should form a militia together.
the Cowboys Suck!!! But the U is alright in my book.
What about the Celtic American's? Don't we count :-)?
Then Whst id the color of Tan Mom Is she white or Black or Wi-Bk ?? It is the colour of skin that counts so what category she goes in?
If we are the minority then I'm marching straight to college, family care, & the food stamp department for my benefits.
Before you qualify I have to make sure you make little to no money first. Being minority doesn't automatically qualify you for public assistance being poor does AND WHITES collect more welfare than any other race. Don't believe me google it smart a$$
you so silly.
Don't count on getting any, my husband has been out of regular work for over 4 years, we live in Calif. have lost our house, medical ins. pretty much everything. We are living on my 14,000/year and help from his mom because we were told we are white and married so do not qualify for anything. Oh, my kids do get a free lunch at school, although most days they prefer what they can scrape together at home to what the school offers.
Just think what you would qualify for if the state didnt give half the cash flow to illegal immigrants.
Contrary to popular beliefs, more whites are on welfare than any other race or ethnic groups:
Here are the statistics on welfare recipients:
Traits of families on AFDC (1)
Who told you that you could not get aid because your white? Which agency and the person's name. I have plenty of clients (families) who are "white" who are getting aid. As for the lunch food, sounds like a personal problem.
Nick I call your BS. Quoted from the AFDC website right now....
Race: About 1 in 4 Black mothers of childbearing ages (1.5 million) were AFDC recipients, higher than the 7 percent of corresponding White mothers (2.1 million). Despite these differences in recipiency rates, Black AFDC mothers did not have significantly more children than their White counterparts.
Humorous considering there are more white people on welfare than black people http://www.huppi.com/kangaroo/L-welfareblack.htm. Go ahead keep lying to yourself.
Since there are more white people than anyone else i agree, but blacks are only 12% of the people but 38% on welfare:
This breaks down to:
39% white 11,661,000 of 29,900,000 recipients
38% black 11,362,000 of 29,900,000
17% Hispanic 5,083,000 of 29,900,000

your link has kangaroo in the thread....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
Might want to get your info from someplace reputable.
Like maybe the division of Social services.
Population numbers aside, the author above implies only minorities get welfare.
Please read the article before commenting. Whites are still the majority, they are just no longer the majority if you lump every other minority together.
The term "ethnic minority" will become meaningless, as every ethnicity and race will be just another minority. To put it another way, there will be no ethnic or racial majority in the United States.
As for immigration, so long as Hispanics learn English, adjust culturally (not saying they have to completely assimilate, just that they should realize American society is very different and more advanced than Mexico or Colombia, ie. women are supposed to be treated as equal to men, you can't try to force Catholic or any other religious values on others, communism ain't happening), get educated at a relatively good rate, and work for a living, I have no problem with them whatsoever.
I do have a problem with illegal immigration though. The United States has a sovereign right to regulate immigration, and those who invade our country by entering it without or leave should be deported back to their home countries by law enforcement. Anchor baby or no.
YOU PEOPLE DON'T GET IT..ARE YOU ALL BLIND ?? TOO MUCH POT SMOKING ???
WE MUST STOP–SHUT DOWN ALL LEGAL IMMIGRATION . WE DO NOT HAVE JOBS FOR THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THAT WE HAVE NOW....
NO MORE IMMIGRANTS PLEASE. OUR JOBS ARE BEING OUTSOURCE TO CHINA, WE KEEP ALLOWING MORE AND MORE IMMIGRANTS–ILLEGALS IN ....WE GOT TO STOP IT, BEFORE IS TOO LATE....
I'M PREDICTING A BLOODY REVOLUTION IN THIS COUNTRY SOON........
WE HAVE 50 TO 75 MILLION AMERICANS UNEMPLOYED-UNDER EMPLOYED THAT SPELLS TROUBLE FOR OUR COUNTRY.....TOO MANY PEOPLE AND NO JOBS ====TROUBLE...
From a physical stand point I am half Asian / half non-hispanic white. My children are a quarter Asian, three-quarters non-hispanic white. The only language my children know is American English. We do not eat rice at every meal. We do everything any other US Family does: we work, we pay taxes, we send our kids to school. Nothing exceptional in my family from any other "white American" famity. Do I consider myself Asian? No. Do I consider myself White? No. I consider myself an American whose has a family that can trace its history on this Continent to the American Revolution and possibly beyond.
The census may consider me and my kids as a minority, but I certainly do not feel like one.
And I think I can speak for some of the NM "minorities" that they feel the same way I do. Many "hispanic" families here can trace their presence on this Continent back to Spanish Conquistadors. Do they consider themselves Spanish or Mexican? No. They consider themselves citizens of the US of A.
This whole article is sensational and polarizing.
Being descended from Spanish Conquistadores on this continent is fine. But not all of this continent is the United States of America. Most of the descendants of Spanish Conquistadores have not been citizens of the United States. Except for Florida, Louisiana, and the Southwestern states conquered from Mexico, the United States has very little Spanish colonial history.
The vast majority of American hispanics either came here from another part of the Americas, or are descended from people who came here from other parts of the Americas.
Other than in the southwestern states and a small percentage in Florida, I doubt there are very many hispanics at all in the United States whose ancestors were in the United States before the Mexican-American War.
Then again, the same is true of many European-descended Americans, as Italians, European Jews from various countries, Polish, Eastern Europeans, etc. immigrated here long after the United States achieved nationhood. I don't know what percentage of them came here legally, but I suspect it is higher than the percentage of Hispanic Americans.
Is Tan Mom white or Black?? It is the colour of skin that counts so what is she??
How is this news? I am a white man, and I've been in the minority for a long time, when you compare the number of white men to the number of white women, non-white men, and non-white women.
Ca-ching, you just hit the jackpot of intellect!
Why do we continue to label these groups as minorities if they outnumber their white counterparts? Time for a change in terminology?
See butch's comment.
Until a single ethnic group overtakes whites, they are still the majority. That won't happen for several decades.
Being a racist isn't helping your case any. All the racist and stereotyping comments on here about people of color just go to show the fear you have from being the oppressor so centuries.
What are they gonna do?
Toss us into the cotton fields?
TODAY'S BLACKS, WOULD NOT SURVIVE 6 HOURS WORKING ON A FARM...HARD WORK. THE BLACKS FROM THE 18–19 CENTURY THEY WERE HARD WORKERS, BUT NOT TODAY'S BLACKS...I'M NOT BEING RACISTS , I'M STATING A FACT.
nope..tobacco fields...or maybe the cannibus fields!
I got one better than the cotton fields try prison. You'll be disenfranchised, stopped and frisked constantly, drugs pipelined into your neighborhoods by the government (Nicaguara)...etc..etc...etc.
Wait, so if all the other minorities combined = 51% and whites = 49%... how does that make whites a minority?
49% are white
16% are black
9% are non-black Latino
7% are Asian
7% are Asian Indian
6% are middle eastern
1% are American Indian / mix
and 5% are mutts
Again I ask, how are whites not the majority?
Exactly. Get tired with minority talk. Whites are still the majority group by far.
I'M A HISPANIC GUY AND I'M HAPPY WITH WHITES IN CONTROL AND IN THE MAJORITY..
You are not alone thinking this....Whites are in majority this report is incorrect and did you observe they mentioned "English as Second Langauge" in future..... So what will be the first langauge then? Spanish?? Mandrin?? What?? This report is not correct.
I'M HAPPY WITH ENGLISH ONLY....THE GROUP THAT WANT TO CHANGE EVERYTHING FROM ENGLISH TO SPANISH IS ??? MEXICANS.. I THINK THAT MEXICANS ARE THE MOST RACIST GROUP OF ALL HISPANIC GROUP.....THEY ARE LUCKY THAT THEY DON'T GET DEPORTED..AMERICANS ARE GETTING TIRED OF THEM, STEALING THE JOBS-STEALING OUR SERVICES THAT WERE MEANT FOR CITIZENS ONLY...MEXICANS ARE PUSHING THEIR LUCK..THEY ARE DEMANDING WAY TOO MUCH....THEY ACT LIKE AMERICA OWE THEM SOMETHING.....THEY ACT LIKE THEY OWN THE COUNTRY...
We gave the power of the highest office in the country to a black man and he screwed us royally.
Imagine what the nation will look like when they run the whole thing.
A Marion Berry for every city!
Who knew the movie Idiocrocy was really a premonition.
Yeah, white guys have done the job WONDERFULLY....
BTW, Obama is white, too.
The white half got elected.
The black half screwed it up.
And we did pretty good for 200+ years under white guys.
Not according to the blacks that voted for him. I guess color is just a perception of the mind.
Funny, if you racist spent as much time trying to fight racism then perhaps this country would be a better place.
Why don't we all simply ignore skin color and judge people for who they are and how they act? Why give anyone anything simply because of their skin color? Why should anyone have any advantage because of their heritage? That includes ALL affirmative action.
So after reading the posts on here, who wants to insist the United States is not racist?
Your whole society is in tatters because you just can't get past your hatred for each other.
We're just playing around with this article you danged fool... let an outsider mess with us and they'll end up like Osama Bin Laden. You just been smacked towel head!
No, most of the comments are seriously racist. And the towel comment – wow. Just wow.
I'm a Canadian white guy. There is no neighbourhood in any Canadian city where I'd be scared to walk alone at night. And yes, we have big cities – Toronto is 5 million+. Why do i think it's better? Because although there is racism here, it isn't anything like in the States. And most people are actively trying to overcome racism. When we visit the U.S., we're always shocked by the way people behave there. And when we're nice to black people, they are pleasantly surprised, while white people get angry at us and shoot us dirty looks for treating black people like ...people. Seriously, your society is messed up.
halting racism had come a long way until Obama was elected.
As soon as every person in the nation was labeled a racist if they disagreed with any policy he made it really set the clock back about 60 years.
Democrats are solely responsible for the massive outbreak of racism by their actions towards the rest of the nation.
White Guilt can be a bad thing and the Democrats are full of it.
Dems were labeled racists for not supporting Herman Cain. Then the GOP stopped supporting Herman Cain.
So as this "melting pot" continues, how will people be classified? When does "black" get diluted enough to be "non-black"? How far removed do you have to be from Hispanic origins to be non- Hispanic? Eventually, everyone will be either picking their own race (I identify as "black"), or they will just select "other" and then "other" will become the new majority. Imagine a day when we hold up the "Historically Other College" as an example to follow!
Its not a melting pot until all people "melt" into society.
That means drop the hyphenated names (African-American) and learn English.
Keep your heritage but be Americans first.
Until then we are just a mess.
Define American? Assimilate or die? Act and talk like us or we will destroy you?
assimilate or die works for me too.
When do I get ma welfare check?
It be in the mail as soon as you and your live-in girlfriend have some babies and you quit your job!
Then you quit your job, take the check, and leave the ho and the brat behind. Go find another ho and repeat.
so... why are they called minorities if they are the majority?
Because whites are still the majority. If you have 5 red M&Ms, 3 brown, 3 green, and 3 blue, the reds are hardly "the minority".
That won't happen until they are overall the largest ethnic group, which won't happen for several decades.
I'M A HISPANIC GUY, AMERICA HAVE WAY TOO MANY HISPANICS , WE DO NOT NEED ANY MORE...TIME TO SHUT DOWN ALL LEGAL IMMIGRATION....TOO MANY PEOPLE AND NO JOBS FOR THEM AND WE KEEP ALLOWING MORE PEOPLE IN..THAT IS INSANE-CRAZY, BEYOND ME....AMERICA IS GOING TO END UP LIKE CHINA.. CHINA WOULD BE IS A HUGE MESS IF WE DIDN'T OUTSOURCE OUR JOBS TO THEM.....THEY WOULD NOT HAVE THE JOBS TO SUPPORT THEIR HUGE POPULATION.....THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THE U.S. WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE AND NO JOBS FOR THEM, THAT SPELLS , TROUBLE..
Nope. What you really are is a guy who doesn't understand how economies work or why jobs are created.
Closing our borders won't create more jobs. Quite the contrary. That's because you need people not to just earn money but to spend money. And, without more people spending money, more jobs won't be created.
I like to live mixed white and asian country. Why? Because they have pretty face, and beauty genetics.
I've seen it a lot. Lot of them. around the world. For example. melanie iglesias, kate beckinsale, etc.
I agree.. whites should mix with asian and become the new super-race!
never happen go to any fashion magazine or any popular periodical out there and white women take up 99% of the pictures there are always a few token but facts are facts!
Amy Chua's daughter is soo hot.
If we whites wanted to 'keep America (majority) white, we only have ourselves to blame. Open immigration policies, especially for cultures that still like large families, porous borders – and our desire for small families. We'd rather be DINKs than have the babies to keep our population up. This isn't a complaint – but we can't complain about it.
My mother was a nurse in the L60's. A lady was complaining about 'all her kids'. My mother asked why she had so many. The lady gave her a dirty look, 'that's black power, baby!'
My mother shot back – 'black power' is smaller families, with educated children.
They both had a point. Guess which one is better for the nation?
We have to have smaller families because our taxes keep going up to pay for all the welfare babies!
7 Billion people on the planet and the blacks still think popping out welfare babies is a good idea.
I'M A HISPANIC GUY....AMERICA NEEDS TO SHUT DOWN ALL LEGAL IMMIGRATION AND PUT 200,000 U.S. TROOPS ON THE MEXICAN BORDER.. IF WE DON'T ? THE WORLDS POOR PEOPLE WILL BE IN THE U.S. ON OUR WELFARE SYSTEM.
So do they still want to get rid of Affirmative Action?
My Long-term Girlfriend recently gave birth to a Black Baby...unfortunately I am White ;(
I hope you are also without a girlfriend... she can't deny she was cheating.
Or that she's biracial. Didn't think of that one, did you? Just assumed she "must" be cheating.
WELL WE HAVE BLACKS THAT WANT TO BE WHITE-WE HAVE HISPANICS THAT WANT TO BE WHITE..A HUGE MESS...
WHY THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE WHAT THEY ARE ? IS BEYOND ME..
If you want to label trends as "being white" or "being black", perhaps you should do a Google search on "white rap fans".
lol at all the white guys small man syndrome. Who cares if your race is now the minority?!?!
Does this mean White folk can now play in the NBA?
Nope. We still can't jump.
as a minority cant we use affirmative action to help?
Maybe tie 50 pound weights to the legs of the black guys so they cant jump so high?
I can git meself into colege now fer free.
Yo, come out dumber than you was to start with and get a job anyway! Dat be the new white thang.
@Dan..George Zimmerman is not a Hispanic name. He "claim" to be Hispanic, but that is after he profiled and murdered a black kid. But I know of zero Hispanics with the last name of Zimmerman. Just saying.
ZIMMERMAN IS A PERUVIAN HISPANIC....HE GOT HIS DAD NAME WHICH HE IS WHITE-HIS MOM IS A PERUVIAN HISPANIC........ZIMMERMAN DOESN'T LOOK WHITE TO ME..
you can look at the man and tell he is hispanic, quit trying to stir the racial pot
He be hispanic yo.
Good! Now I can get Affirmative Action and be cool, because only minorities are cool, ya know.
Yeah, one of my greatest regrets as a white man is not being oppressed. Why should non-whites be the only ones allowed to face discrimination?
It's great to be white - that's all I can say.
Are whites the new "largest" minority or do latinos outnumber us too?
BLACKS–HISPANICS CAN HAVE AS MANY KIDS AS THEY WANT..WE HAVE WELFARE-FREE HOSPITAL-SECTION 8 HOUSING-ALL FOR THEM TO HAVE AS MANY KIDS AS THEY WANT..WHITE PEOPLE TAKE CARE OF THEM ..
I tell ya, I've learned more on this forum in 5 minutes that I did in 17 years of primary, secondary, and college education. Who knew that whites could not be on welfare?
so after 17 years of education you never learned what averages are ? you should request a refund
He would have learned more but the classes have been dumbed down so black folk can pass the tests.
Tests are somehow not fair to black folk.
you got taken for that education i see
go ask for a huge refund
glad to see you are finally opening your eyes nilla
The data proofs that most of the recipients of welfare are white. it might seem that most blacks and Hispanics are on welfare due to the way the media portraits them.
i'm sorry but according to the department of human services you sir are incorrect minorities make over 60% of welfare cases nation wide might wana do some research before you post again ...just sayin
The other 40% are fat white women who have little black kids running around with the daddy out of the picture
You wish... I make more money than most the "white" people I know.
Seems unfair that white men gets all the pretty colored women.. while the colored men get fat ugly white women..
Gay can’t have kids as Straight do,
Many White Men and Women are becoming Gay
Therefore, Many white Men and Women becoming voluntarily (not biologically) Childless
As they will have fewer babies, they will acquire the status of "Minority"
Not for very much longer. I'll be dead soon and I'm the end of the line of hosts in our family.
The term "minority" is a ridiculous term. Globally, European whites have always been a "minority" who just achieved much more than the rest of mankind combined.
I never use the term "minority" to refer to non-whites. That is all this is about anyway. As soon as non-whites outnumber whites, then "non-white" culture will reign, just like it does in other "non-white" countries. America's future is bleak indeed.
I'm feeling oppressed today. Who wants to go riot?
I'll need a couple of hours to learn how to hold my 9mm sideways while drinking a 40 and walking with my pants around my knees.
Dude, you are sop righteous! We can pop a cap on dem fools and say we didn't see nut'n, don't know nut'n and they can't do nut'n... cause we be white!
As a middle class white male, I have to say that America is a pretty crappy place for people like me. When I walk through a neighborhood other than my own, no one has the basic concern to stop me and learn my intentions. Everyone just assumes I'm hard working and educated. Heck, in the 1800s, employers insisted on giving my ancestors PAYCHECKS! No opportunity to work for free like those privileged minorities.
It really is tough to be white in America. Maybe, if the trends continue, I can feel the welcoming benefits of being in the minority.
We can only hope.
The 1800s! Whoa ... that was only like 200 YEARS AGO! Your pain must be so fresh ...
I didn't know that a bunch of white males like you were causing a ton of trouble? What white people did a riot lately? Hmmm.. can't remember... have white people rioted since the tea party? (serious question) What white gang is there? Is there a white cartel selling drugs somewhere?
DAN, THEY WAY THINGS ARE GOING IN OUR COUNTRY , WE MAY HAVE TO RIOT TO GET OUR POLITICIANS TO WAKE UP..
Just wondering if it's really that safe when you continue to drink the same thing that you clean your engine with. Maybe, you should ask the penguin you're sleeping with.
But according to CNN – hispanics are white, so their whole long winded statistical explanation is bogus.
Not all Hispanics. Google "U.S. Census" + "Latino". Hispanic/Latino is a yes/no question.
No, they are all white hispanic males.
They are only white to look at, once they open their mouth to speak then you know they are colored
The downfall continues,
Hispanics are not white unless they kill a black kid.
You beat me to it!
BUT WE ARE SUPPOSE TO BE THE MAJORITY RACE!!!!
....after we killed all the indians of course. but they don't count, right???????
They dont count.
except come time to distribute the welfare checks. then they count.
t-bone, I was unaware that the government widely uses Native Americans to distribute checks to people on welfare. You learn something new every day!
Dude Whites collect more welfare than any other race.
That is correct. As the majority, they take the majority of "welfare" checks. Seeing as most people are poor & most Americans are white, whites obviously get the most according to anyone who can actually do basic math, and that's not even including all the subsidies/welfare checks for "white" American farmers & such who, yes, did kill to claim land so not buying the whole well I am just successful argument... why because your "ancestors" killed for you?! Seem like the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree! You type are just awful human beings regardless of your skin color!
White people got educated to the fact each baby will cost 225,000.00 from birth to age at . Thats a cool 1,000,000 for four kids so we said Wo ! The poverty rate of children is high in the U.S. and it takes 50,000.00 per year for a family of four just to get buy . Kids are fun but not if you work all the time just to keep them fed and are never able to be able to spend any time with them .
Thats why black men take off as soon as the woman is pregnant.
Just because it happened to you doesn't mean it happened to everyone else, you know.
Fortunately I'm the end of the line of welfare payers as well as other whites. The minorities will have to leech off each other.
perhaps this is merely evidence that white guys are really bad at picking up women – particularly women interested in 'doing it'? Sort of an unexpected balancer for income disparity: white guys make more so women who are only interested in money (somehow these are typically also white women) gravitate towards white guys, quickly preventing them from having other mates and resulting in fewer children, which are expensive and require work – whereas the rest of the women out there have only the less-rich people to choose from, who turn out to be minorities.
also, i'm white and my wife is half-white, half-black. Which category does our kid fall into? It seems arbitrary, and anything arbitrary is of no significance – this article is of no significance.
hard to pick up chicks when your working to pay taxes so the govt can give your money to the little monkeys across the country.
No problem with the ladies here. But I'm white, and I like the chocolate ones!
you bring up an interesting point, I guess they check the box that most people look and them and think what they are.. or maybe you go with %? I'm 75% caucasion so.... who cares about color, I'm only concerned for the overall health of the country, that is how we all benefit, the only color I care about is green, prosperity, quality of life of our residents. I wish we could get it together, I wish we all would embrace education and family. If you have 5 kids and are working your butt off, and you don't spend time with the kids, what benefit is that?
I'm one of those whities, I make good money with my wife, we have a quality of life we like, we travel, save money, we don't want the burden of raising kids. Look at what they are raised in these days.. it seems as time goes on things are getting more and more racist, I don't get it. The dems like to divide and conquer to get votes, they want to paint the rich against everyone and trying to rip everyone off. Politicians just want to get paid, they don't care about the country, and here we are, falling into the traps
White guys and white women are tired of being taxed into slavery and don't want our children to be slaves, so we quit. We're done, let the other fight over the scraps and pay 70% of their income to taxes. .
I like people with white and asian mixed babes. They look soo beautiful. Kate Beckinsale. olivia munn, meggie Q, etc...
They look pretty rare and so beautiful. Soo sooo beautiful. I want to married people with mixed white and asian.
I can finally use the race card every time i dont get my way!!!!
A lot of whites do already.
Hey everyone let's not forget 100 years ago Italians and Irishmen weren't "white" either. That makes me believe in 80 years this will all have changed again.
Why do people insist on making hispanics their own race? Hello, Spanish Empire anyone? European colonies? Most hispanics have ancestry from Europe too. Their families just took a several generation layover in the Caribbean, Central America or South America first.
white folk in the past have done a lot of bad stuff.you are right to be scared of the others.
But our aim is a lot better and we're far more clever.
Yes, keep trying to force all Hispanics and blacks into the same category. That is very strange.
I am a White Hispanic yet I get counted as a "person of color." F. YOU, CNN.
I can finally start the NAAWP.
The NAACP is racist too.
where do i sign up and start getting welfare...food stamps....and free medical...??
Whatchit...you'll be a racist!
whenever you say anything that could mean the truth and isn't sugar coated, you are a racist!
Couldn't agree more! God forbid we hurt someone's feelings. If we took personal everything that other races do, it would be a crime. I mean, minorities openly talk about white people and we don't get our drores in a bunch!
'sugar-coated' can also mean respectful (like how you'd want me to speakto your mother) and not like some of your shameful comments here...and Tina, wow, girl, you got something in a bunch here.
Really? Its all just a big conspiracy to destroy the black man right? You are such a ignorant racist. Nobody cares about controlling you, we just want you to get off your lazy ass and contribute to society instead of being a lousy parasite who thinks we owe you a living. And we don't want you and or your people robbing and killing us because your too damned lazy to go out an earn your own living.
This paragraph bugs me. It seems like they are saying all minorities can't speak English.
Yes, why would the babies not learn English if they are living in the United States and attending American public schools? Lord knows white people aren't going to learn Spanish, so Hispanics living here legally had better learn both. Illegal immigrants can not learn English for all I care, will make it easier to identify them for deportation when our federal and state governments finally begin to treat illegal immigration as the massive, unacceptable problem it is.
haha – I though the same thing. ESL children are children from other counties where their first/native language is that of their home country. In this case, those of us born of immigrants (at least in part), have our first language as English – regardless of whether or not we speak a different language at home.
Look at it this way. Half of these monkey babies will kill the other half off by the age of 18! It's nature's way of thining the herd.
One thing should be done to stem the flow of monkey babies. There should be strict enforcement of in-breeding laws. Incest is an epidemic amongst the monkey population. It's a known fact...blackies' dirty little secret.
You mean to tell me that 50% of All babies under 1 are white and the other 50% is made up of "several" other ethnic groups? So what your saying is that white babys make up half the population of babies...Way to go CNN on making white people feel extinct by using basic math and reverse psychology.
The article is inconsistent. In the beginning it defines minorities as not White and not Hispanic. Then it talks about Hispanics as if they are a minority?!?!?!?!? Very Confusing.
Well... if the white folks are fading out. Are we going to, at least, get some Asians moving into the USA?
We'll need someone to keep the lights on and productivity going.
No...the Arabs are moving in and buying up our property with the gasoline profits we give them, the mexicans are breaking the borders with breakneck speeds and the white blue collar man can't afford to breed anymore because he isn't allowed to receive the free welfare given to the former. Can't wait to see the end result of this mess.
I'm Irish and my wife is Puerto Rican. Our daughters are obviously mixed race but look white. I always mark them as Caucasian on everything, whereas my M-i-L thinks I should classify them as Hispanic. Why? They don't look hispanic, they don't speak Spanish and they have my last name. How are they minority? How does that benefit them?
It's alright, I don't listen to my m-i-l either
I don't listen to your m-i-l either
More b.s. double standard from the media who relishes the destruction of the world's inventor, civilized, sustaining white race. Last time I checked, hispanics are "white" racially. So by that account, blacks' share of the population is shrinking. On the other hand, the media keeps emphasizing that zimmerman is a "white hispanic." Ridiculous bias.
Actually, by the rules of the US census, Hispanic/Latinos can be Black, White, Asian, Pacific Islander, or Native American.
You're right. But the ones who classify themselves as "Caucasian," should be counted as "White." Why aren't they?
A LOT of people seem to forget that whites are not native to this country.
That's briilliant. Who said they are? Whites have just been the majority.
White people built this country. Some people seem to have a hard time remembering that. Or maybe the "politically correct" textbooks of today don't teach it that way.
Great news! So when I get pulled over by a black cop (I'm white) I can claim racial profiling even though I just made an illegal left turn? (Mr. Perry)
Yeah, we whites really have it tough in this country.
You miss the point. Racial profiling as a excuse to break the law is my point. Whites can't use that excuse now, but when we are the minority race we can! I will.
ha,ha.you are already scared.how about you being killed for having a cell phone,and all minority jury letting minority cop walk free?
I am amazed at your stupidity! Great the future looks bright!
you won't catch me walking around with a hoodie or a thug.. though I do think that zimm is guilty for not listening to the operator.. that shows intent in my eyes
Most bourgeois white people polled today think that the biggest racial problem we face in America is reverse racism (I.E anti white sentiment.) It is w/in this framework that I understand your point.
Ooooooo, da Ghost Panthers be a com'n!
All these damn sorry white girls messing around with black boys in school. It has become a status symbol to have a "mixed race" baby. They show them off like a trophy.
Yeah. A friend of mine refers to them as "tar babies."
Yes, tar babies. That is what they are called. However, it is a term of endearment, not an insult. My kids are mixed; they are my tar babies and they are very much loved. Mixed babies grow up to be the best looking men and women. My sons are so handsome....yes they are my shining stars and I love to brag about them.
some do some don't, lets be honest, just like all babies..
My chil'n grow up to be mobsta's (white gangsta's), talking dat honkeebonics and not riding in da back of the bus no mo'. Come on affirmative action I need a job because I'm white, not because I have any skills. This sho nuff gonna pi** off the colored race Ber rabbit! We gett'n dem benefits da was a gett'n.
It's so sad that we let this happen but you can't blame the minorities. If you lived in a 3rd world country and you could go to the (for the time being) the best country in the world and be able to live well, reproduce and let everyone else pay for it, you'd be crazy not to go.
White Americans need to wake up to the reality your enemies want you to kill your own babies. If you do have a baby, they want them to be gay or breed non-Whites. They steal tax dollars from your family to provide for others'.
Whites have been sold out by those elected to represent them. White bureaucrats who attack White Citizens with malignant policies need to be permanently shunned from the community.
go back to your klan meeting, psycho.
Typical nonsensical reply, probably from a self-hating White person.
And when these white babies get older, their tax dollars will support the minority ones on public aid.
So who pays for the white people on government aid?
There just not that many proportionally.
Don't you mean as white people retire, they will be supported by the Social Security contributions of predominantly non-white workers?
Who's going to keep the lights on?
Once whites are a minority, then we can ask to have our own separate schools. That will be nice. When you're the majority, you can't tell the minority to have separate schools. But when you are a minority, then you can.
like minorities asked for that back then or asked to be enslaved 500+ yrs ago!!! Only reason Righties want a white president(they know Mitt is a idiot) to TRY to get an establishment back. Things have evolved since the 40's + 50's
We whites don't want a "white" president. We want a president who will stay out of our personal lives. Like Obama who wants to control MY healthcare decisions and change my religious beliefs. WRONG! If we continue voting in Democrats, why have the Consitution?
We do need to change Health Care though. It was getting crazy, and it's about to get crazy again. It's not Obamacare, it's that the cost of health care is increasing with the cost of new technology. Something has to be done. Republicans would rather just let the cost increase and let people who can't afford health care die.
As for Obama's religious views, how does he make you change your religious views? This makes no sense.
Sure you can ask for your own schools, but by the time the population shift happens, it will be our grandkids (my son is 1 right now) who are the ones making decisions. And hopefully the ignorance that exist now will finally fade away.
I am white and love this. Bring the diversity. Bring me those brown ladies, Mexican, Middle Eastern, Asian or any other race. Nothing prettier IMO. Don't be afraid, they are just like you. Might speak a little different, serve a different dish at dinner [love the different foods, give it all to me] and worship a little differently but we all just want to see our loved ones flourish and enjoy our down time. I like football, they like soccer. We both drink beers while we enjoy them.
Well said. The more differences the better. I live in Queens County, NYC (the most diverse county in the nation) so I see this everyday, and there's nothing like it.
Your spending to much time on that Asian Teen Site again, aren't you?
Like you think the white race really cares? Success does not depend on race, it depends on determination.
Dont you mean position instead of determination??? As a minority, I agree to a certain extent WE need to continue to better ourselves what the point of being a majority If the white man still has all the postions w/ any authority. What you are preaching supposrt what we are telling our yourth today. Looks like we all have on common goal then :-) Trust me it takes a lot more determination when you don't have a daddy, cousin, neighbor, or church member giving you a 'one up' pn everyone..
Terrible generalization, retard. You are stupid.
It's no coincidence articles like this appear; it plays to Obama's agenda of class warfare, creating division among us, etc.
Weird. I felt the opposite way. I'm white but I welcome a more diverse America. This is not an issue to incite class warfare. Rather, it's an opportunity to have a more diverse and vibrant society with the inclusion of many groups around the world. I'm glad to see that America is moving more-and-more toward a multiethnic nation.
Don't quite agree with this one. I have a major problem with my family doing without while we give to others who are minorities. My family has fought for this nation. We are Americans with family history here since the 1700's. What right does anyone have to ask for more than my children can get? What a country!!
@Rita. I'm not sure what you mean. I can't think of any social program that gives minorities a preferential treatment (other than certain forms of affirmative action at universities, which I don't support myself). Usually what one receives (from the government as tax credits) depends on your income, not your race. My ancestors have been here since the 1700s as well, but I can't see how minorities are depriving my children of anything. If anything, they are filling the population gap that will help support the baby boomer generation (via social security, tax revenue, etc) as it grows significantly older.
Class warfare? That doesn't even make sense here.
The number of non white immigrants has reduced under Obama. Your theory fails, and falls flat. Sorry.
