Posted on 02/10/2011 9:34:25 AM PST by triumphant values
WASHINGTON Whites continued to decline as a share of the American population in 2009, and they now represent less than half of all 3-year-olds, according to a Brookings Institution analysis of census data released Monday.
The countrys young population is more diverse than ever, with whites now in the minority in nursery schools, preschools and kindergartens in eight states Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas and the District of Columbia, according to William H. Frey, a demographer at Brookings. That was up from six states in 2000.
We are on our way to having a majority of minority students in U.S. schools, Mr. Frey said.
Nationally, whites accounted for 58.8 percent of all school enrollment in 2009, Mr. Frey said, citing the new data, which measured enrollment from preschool to graduate school as of October 2009. That was down from 64.6 percent in 2000, a decline that came with falling birthrates as the white population aged.
Population growth has come instead from Hispanics, blacks and Asians, whose children represent ever larger shares of the school population. Twenty-three percent of children in kindergarten were Hispanic in 2009, up from 18 percent in 2000 and 10 percent in 1989. Hispanics now account for nearly a fifth of all enrollment from nursery school through college, Mr. Frey said.

It’s because “Minorities” tend to breed like rabbits and/or other rodents.
You hit that nail on it’s head!!!
I live in a suburb, most of the kids are “hispanic”, I wonder how many of their parents are legal?
Rodent-style? Who holds the tail?
Round up and REMOVE as many ILLEGALS as we can find and that number will change!
After a generation or two here their fertility rates fall precipitously. Not quite to native white rates, but down quite a bit.
No, this mind-blowing demographic shift since the 1970s is due almost entirely to our immigration policies both legal and illegal, with the Immigration Act of 1965 the top culprit.
Not that much. We're still bringing in well over a million legal immigrants from third-world countries a year.
Mixed marriages for demographic purposes uses the minority partner as the race of the child. The part that is half white is never counted. Or so I’m told.
ANd just WHO was reponsible for BOTH Immigration Act of 1965 AND 1986? TED KENNEDY!
You forgot to add that The tax payer pays for their children. Cut off welfare and other subsides, PLUS END CHAIN EMIGRATION AND THIS MAY REVERSE.
Also how come no one points out that Hispanics are growing due to ILLEGAL emigration?
Breeding early and often provides more of Uncle Sugar’s generous bennies.
Whites are waiting to start families in their 30’s instead of their early twenties because of desire for financial stability during the “years of the children”
If all your needs come from Uncle Sugar then breed away is the mind set of these loafers.
This doesn't make sense. Instead, it should read that whites ARE a minority, and we should start discussing affirmative action and other ways to help protect this delicate community who is so helpless.
How do they define “White”.
Typical NYT crap. Written to depress or instigate.
Wiki-In the 2009 American Community Survey, 48.4 million Americans (15.8% of the total population) listed themselves as ethnically Hispanic or Latino American. Of those, 63% (30.4 million) self-identified as racially white.
Here in the Southwest, interracial couples are everywhere. Go to a mall, or a walmart.
There is no longer shame in mixed ethnicity, so fewer children are passed off as racially pure.
Don't forget co-sponsor Emmanuel Celler of Brookly who championed getting the National Origins criteria dismantle since his tirades against the Immigration Act of 1924 way back in 1923.
And Reagan signed the amnesty freely in 1986. Nobody made him. Both parties have been sellouts on immigration.
Sen. Ted Kennedy’s Immigration Act of 1965 prohibited immigration from European countries in favor of third world country immigrants which tended to vote for Democrats.
White women are too busy to have children. We need third worlders now to help keep us at the bare minimum replacement rate otherwise if they weren’t here we’d have a fertility rate similar to Euro-peon countries.
We are on our way to having a majority of minority students in U.S. schools, Mr. Frey said.
Thus said the educated idiot.
White people have split into two groups:
Elite childless liberals
Christian family types
Sure, some people fall in between, but overall, the family types don’t breed enough to make up for the childless urban yuppie types.
If we stay where we are, our son will be one of the only white kids in his school (assuming we go public school which is up for debate). Not that it matters per se, but I wouldn’t want to be the only white kid in a school any more than I’d want to be the only Hispanic kid or only Black kid or whatever.
It’s all been planned since Wilson.
FDR, Kennedy, LBJ, Carter, Bush, Clinton, Bush II, Obama.
If you make the Tower of 3rd World Babel, the whites will be weakened.
OK idiot! Reagan signed the act in 1986 believing Tip O’Neill and the MAJORITY Dems that “immigration(invasion) would be addressed in 1987. They LIED (imagine THAT). Reagan WAS a 100% Honerable Man.
So, when are we ending Affirmative Action?
Yeah, they have to work to attain the same things as a single income household could 45 years ago.
We need third worlders keep us at the bare minimum replacement rate otherwise if they werent here wed have a fertility rate similar to Euro-peon countries.
Below level replacement fertility is certainly desirable to what we're about to get with replacing the founding stock.
There is some truth to that.
Think about this - Freddie Prinze Jr. is labeled as a “Hispanic” due to his Puerto Rican dad. Now I realize many Hispanics are technically white (as in Spaniard), but his dad Freddie Sr. was definitely Mestizo-looking. However, for Freddie Jr, if nodoby knew otherwise, he could easily just pass as a non-Hispanic white guy.
The movie Idiocracy explains it perfectly.
This is because white men have become sissies with low sperm counts.
White women have become extremely strident.
and blacks abort babies at the highest rate there is..imagine if they didn’t
goofball freepers will continue to say that America going non white means nothing
they don’t get our much
Also consider that White Hispanics are counted as “Minority” where if it werne’t for their Spanish last name, they’d just be white people (which they are).
Several actors and actresses come to mind - Cameron Diaz, Joanna Garcia, even Alexis Bledel (who has a non-Spaniard name, but being from Argentine descent is labeled Hispanic even though she has little Spaniard blood). All of them are considered “Hispanic” but if we didn’t know otherwise, they’d just be “white people.”
Oh, so he was just a gullible dummy. Well that makes it so much better. That was his excuse for the Therapeutic Abortion Act that he signed in California as governor: "The doctors tricked me."
Christina Aguilera also fits the description in my last post.
But that movie had a redneck ("Clevon") as the one who was the head of the family tree that degraded into Idiocracy.
don’t forget kumbaya Christian types...they are as progressive as a secular urban Jew might be
What a difference Anchor Babies can make eh?
Don Francisco, of Sabado Gigante, is the son of German Jews who fled to Chile to escape the Holocaust.
That’s my point.
I just consider her “white” but the Census Bureau classifies her as the invented minority, the Hispanic.
Hispanic is a very loosely defined term, and in my opinion was invented as a way to create a new protected class. In general useage, what most of us refer to as Hispanic is really mestizo (mixed white/Amerindian).
Not really. 45 years ago families did not expect to have more than one car, or a TV in every room. Two car garages were a novelty when I was a kid.
Eating out at resturaunts? Well whose birthday is it?
You’re correct. The difficulty with this is that the average legal immigrant costs this nation money, as well, and consumes more than is contributed.
Other than the obvious balkanization and liberalization that is occurring in this nation (which shouldn’t be mitigated), the other difficulty is that there is a very marked performance difference between whites and Asians as one subgroup and Hispanics and blacks in another that is immune to analysis by socioeconomic status or what have you. Even poor, rural schools (which are assuredly white-dominant) located in areas with no community libraries or additional learning facilities per se outperform urban (predominantly minoriy) schools by leaps and bounds on every measureable test cateogory with perhaps the exception of Spanish language proficiency in some districts.
Our nation went from first in the world in educational test taking in the 1960s to 24th today. The biggest shift in our society has unquestionably come via this demographic boom which was enabled by the 1965 immigration act and the hordes of illegal immigrants swarming our borders. I’m sure some liberal professor in some little tower will come up with a million and one little reasons to explain this away, but Occam’s razor will no doubt be sheathed and banned on this discussion—or rebranded as the sword of “racism” and used without abandon. (rolls eyes)
I think it’s become a political reality that this shift is unstoppable, and any attempt to do such will come with massive political penalties. It would literally take the economic meltdown of the entire nation to end it.
Party Time in Moocherville and Obamaland tonight!!
(until they figure out there will be less people to support them)
The breeders would be Husband and Wife and staied married. Not babydaddy and ho, who just happens to be his bitch at the time.
But you also have to adjust for debt levels. What was paid for in cash back then which has a payment plan now.
Now I can only speak from my Chicago knowledge, but most of the garages here are over 45 years old and they're all two cars, enter from the alley.
I know guys who worked for Inland Steel or drove for Yellow Freight who made nearly $30,000 a year in 1969. A new Buick for the wife, and a new Chevy pickup for them every four years, paid for with cash.
My family had a small, neighborhood bar that was cashing $200,000 in paychecks on a Friday afternoon out of the safe in the 1970s, and we were far from the only ones doing it.
House paid off in 8 to 9 years tops.
I imagine it was the same way in Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh back then.
It may have been different where you were.
