Posted on 02/25/2011 4:42:41 PM PST by iowamark
Looking at population projections for Texas, demographer Steve Murdock concludes: "It's basically over for Anglos."
Two of every three Texas children are now non-Anglo and the trend line will become even more pronounced in the future, said Murdock, former U.S. Census Bureau director and now director of the Hobby Center for the Study of Texas at Rice University.
Today's Texas population can be divided into two groups, he said. One is an old and aging Anglo and the other is young and minority. Between 2000 and 2040, the state's public school enrollment will see a 15 percent decline in Anglo children while Hispanic children will make up a 213 percent increase, he said.
The state's largest county - Harris - will shed Anglos throughout the coming decades. By 2040, Harris County will have about 516, 000 fewer Anglos than lived in the Houston area in 2000, while the number of Hispanics will increase by 2.5 million during the same period, Murdock said. The projection assumes a net migration rate equal to one-half of 1990-2000.
Most of the state's population growth is natural, Murdock told the House Mexican American Legislative Caucus today. About 22 percent of the growth comes from people moving to Texas from other states.
About 6 percent of the state's population is not documented, he said.
By 2040, only 20 percent of the state's public school enrollment will be Anglo, he said. Last year, non-Hispanic white children made up 33.3 percent of the state's 4.8 million public school enrollment...
The state's future looks bleak assuming the current trend line does not change because education and income levels for Hispanics lag considerably behind Anglos, he said....

It’s never going to be ‘over for Anglos’ until Anglos decide it’s over for themselves.
Looks like the Houston Chronicle is trying to scare stuff up.
This “news” came out a couple years ago. The local McDonald’s got all down jiggly with it and put up the menu in Spanish. I guess they got too many complaints because it was down within days. OTOH, about 4 years ago we made the mistake of going into Whataburger for lunch and got evil stares of “gringos not allowed” by all the illegals that filled the place. I doubt they’re hurting for many business but I’ve never been back.
Even by Harry Truman's time it was common for an American to have half a dozen ethnicities lurking in the ol'woodpile.
Their Anglo-Chokras are struggling to present themselves AND they will! More than one Mexican momma is going to cry herself to sleep seeing that "the blond girl" has her little boy!
The US will be a much smaller country without California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada.
All the more reason for Texas to pass the anchor baby legislation A.S.A.P.!
Sadly the Texas GOP are all RINOs and did nothing to protect the border. Rick PErry, Kay Bailey, Cornyn, Bush et al. Yeah it is the Feds job but Texas should have stepped in.
White flight. And flight of middle class or upwardly hopeful/mobile blacks and hispanics. Such people are fleeing to somewhere. Arizona? Idaho? Colorado? Kansas?
Those who are not able to flee...
Why have children when the government and even entire cities or counties or states are increasingly anti-anglo, anti-home, anti-family?
Anglos kids are persecuted in the schools and anglo families are under the invasive thumb of local and state government. At the slightest invented reason the government "social services" takes away our kids.
The Anglos, along with citizens of “Hispanic” ancestry that do not favor the open borders approach to immigration, have not yet mustered the will to put a stop to the alien invasion. I cannot remember a U. S. President that actually intended to secure our borders, with the possible exception of Reagan, who let himself be snookered by Ted Kennedy into accepting an amnesty in return for nothing.
Didn’t Santa Anna say something like that?
White folks need to breed more, the others, less. Also, more important to me is the culture. How many of the non-anglo are old school, hard core Texas hispanics that have been there since the beginning?
Unfortunately, thanks mostly to indoctrinated public skoolz and Liberal Colleges, the 'Anglo's' voted with political correctness for an un-qualified token black in 2008.....and here we are.
Coupled with the insane "Anchor Baby" rule, Mexicans freely come across the border and drop off a new "American Citizen", then we let the whole extended family come in to join, as "we can't break up a family".
THAT is what "Anglo's" are doing.......
Nope, I'll still be vilified as the evil white male that "deserves" everything he gets.
It was over years ago for Texas...
In fact, you're likely seeing the last White Governor of Texas...Eventually, the illegals will turn the Alamo into a medical clinic for illegal aliens.
No, Texas should have seceded a long time ago.
Anglos who worship at an idol of multi-culturalism tend to have smaller families, and those children they do have tend to dislike their parents intensely, from what I’ve seen. That leaves the other Anglos who haven’t taken on guilt for being who they are, living their lives in their own country, and that group includes members of religions that tend to have large Anglo families, and many of those people tend to home-school or send their children to private schools.
The anchor-baby travesty is being sorted out and might be decided in America’s favor. That’s up to us too. The cost of illegal aliens to this country is greater than the cost of removing every single one of them, and that would change some of the demographic projections in the original article. If I were giving a verdict it would be: bleak but not hopeless. Again, it’s not over for Anglos until Anglos decide it’s over for themselves. Faith sustains, however you want to define faith.
That Blond Girl just might be one of my GrandDaughters.
Blond Hair, Yes.
Blue Eyes, Yes.
Last name of Galvez.
Point well taken.
Many of the young people today are not so hungup on the whole Race thing.
People need to look past all the superficial stuff and concentrate on the person Values.
They see it as the success of their invasion and the ultimate takeover of the hated Anglo's land and power.
But there is no history of Mexico or any other Latin country achieving anything significant, other than setting records for human misery.
Just as the current residents of Detroit are finding out, once the creative and productive class leaves, it's back to subsistence farming.
Intelligent parasites at least don't kill the host. But in upper midwestern cities, and the southwest in general, the dumbest parasites ever seen are doing just that.
Their next generations will be progressively smaller as they simply will not have the welfare, the free medical care, or a robust economy that employs unskilled squat laborers at its fringes.
But they actually won't care being Lords of The Flies. It'll be just like Mexico, and in the end, that's as much as they've ever been able to imagine, so that's all it'll be.
Another fear-mongering-race-baiter. “Over for Anglos”. I guess we sit on the porch and drink Colt 45 while frying cow brains on open fires and rocks. Pass me the gasoline, I need to huff away my days.
“I cannot remember a U. S. President that actually intended to secure our borders, with the possible exception of Reagan, who let himself be snookered by Ted Kennedy into accepting an amnesty in return for nothing.”
I agree. But wonders never cease.
If we have the will, and we are in the right, then we can see things happen. Operation Paperclip is within living memory. Operation Paperclip II, 2012 sounds like something to work for.
“When you have an immigrant group build up enough strength to “go forth and multiply” the best looking chicks are going to go for the guys with the best jobs, and there goes the old ethnic purity.
Even by Harry Truman’s time it was common for an American to have half a dozen ethnicities lurking in the ol’woodpile.
Their Anglo-Chokras are struggling to present themselves AND they will! More than one Mexican momma is going to cry herself to sleep seeing that “the blond girl” has her little boy!”
I’m not sure what you’re getting at here. There have been people of Spanish ancestry in Texas since before it became a republic and then become a state. Not everyone called Anglo is of Anglo-Saxon British ancestry - I’m just reading it as English-speaking American who would be listed as ‘white of non-Hispanic origin’ on census forms. Going forth and multiplying isn’t any one ethnic group’s particular intellectual property.
The “Quiverfull” movement is based in the San Antonio area. I know white, Protestant families there with 18 children. However, there just aren’t enough Anglo large families to make up for an average (among Hispanics in my church in NC) of about 4.5 children per family.
However, as someone up the thread observed, ethnicity is less important than culture. Conservatives of any color or language should have more children (and homeschool them or start schools) and leftists of types belong on the Darwinian ash-heap.
They've outmarried to the degree that 'blond" is normal ~
BTW, everybody knows how they use the term "Anglo" West of the Mississippi. Still, if I were you and had any "anglo blood" I'd take my dirk and cut a hole in my arm to let it leach out. You just don't want any of that stuff ya' know. Scotts and Sa'ami are best by test!
Sure they are. If they're ethnically Mexican males, for instance, and they see a Mexican female with a white guy, they go apes**t. Been there done that. The enforcers can and will come after such "vendidas" and make sure she comes back into the fold.
But getting the "blondina gringa" is considered a conquest because it shows the manliness of the Grande Hombre, and the weakness of the gringos ("I got your woman, whitey!"). So there's no stigma attached - on the contrary, showing off the Prize is considered a big deal.
White kids are propagandized, bullied and lectured about the evils of their race mercilessly in modern American schools. Even though their ancestors created the most successful nation in human history, they are made to feel ashamed and deracinated. One of the Acts of Penance which Liberals teach they must do is to outmarry from their group: show that you're inclusive, and make sure there will not be any white children from your marriage.
The official word for such a practice is genocide...because it literally wipes out a genetic line.
But that's all it is. It's not an "enlightened generation", it's a beaten generation.
The Mexican illegals breed like ants, regardless whether that can afford kids or not.. At Dallas Parkland Hospital 1000 anchor babies per month from illegals are being delivered...Every single month at just one Texas hospital..
Texas is done!
Yup, Latinos and Latinas to the core!
lol...CA used to be GOP too, didn't mean much, but that was the case...Texas will be nearly 90 percent Hispanic/illegal alien within 10 years. Bet the rent.
At Dallas Parkland Hospital 1000 anchor babies per month from illegals are being delivered...Every single month at just one Texas hospital..
You don't have to be a senior demographer to figure out where this is going.
BAM! Hammer on the Nail!
Excellent. To the point...
Values, whoda thunk it???
I’m not making this a racial thing, so I’m going to leave it there. Anglos, however defined - and I think Scots would be included in the demographer’s use of the term, probably even Lapps/Sami, have as much right to assert themselves in Texas as anyone else, including Hispanics with American citizenship. Illegal aliens don’t, whether they’re Hispanics in Texas or French Canadians in New England. That’s basically all I was saying.
Things change, and are seldom on a linear progression.
For example, when a nation reaches an economic plateau, a standard of living, unique to that nation, suddenly their birth rate drop to just sustainability. Most recently, this phenomenon has happened in Mexico, where their birth rate has plummeted from 4-8 children per family, to just 1-3. Technically, a birthrate averaging 2.3 children per family.
This means the demographic spigot flowing to the US is being turned off. With a stable population, any economic growth in Mexico will have to result in increased wages, as there will no longer be an abundance of cheap labor. Employers will have to compete for workers.
In turn, this means that Mexican workers living in the US will have some motivation to return home, especially when faced with a much more difficult work environment in the US.
So how will this affect the demographics of Texas, now the US’s second most populous State? (After CA but ahead of NY).
Illegal immigrants account for more than one-third of the foreign-born population in Texas and 5.4% of the total state. With Republican ascendancy in the US, it is likely that a lot of those illegals will be leaving. But otherwise Texas is prosperous, which has an attraction to other Americans to move to Texas.
Add to that the vast majority of Mexican-Americans fully integrate into the US, losing whatever affiliation they had with Mexico, and there is little or no bias against miscegenation between Mexicans and whites. Children of such couples can freely move in either society, where language and culture matter more than appearance.
All told, Texas will likely remain Texas.
I know several mixed Hispanic/Anglo families and I’ve never seen any overt racism except on the part of black government employees against Hispanic females. From what I’ve seen no one gives much thought to white and Hispanic dating and marriage.
White and black mixed couples are treated much differently.
the worse it becomes in Europe, the more WASPS and Catholics will flee to America, thus disrupting the trends that rabblerousers love to predict.
Then it’s basically over for America.
A lot still depends on whether a comprehensive amnesty is passed. It is estimated that 1/3 of the Hispanics in the US are here illegally, and that includes the census figures for Hispanics since no citizenship questions are asked.
All these demographic projections are based upon Hispanic population numbers which include the illegals. Don’t pass amnesty and finally enforce our immigration laws and a great deal changes.
Ahem,,, its usually calf brains, bato...
I do prefer menudo...
You’re getting warm...
Do the numbers...Ya got 1000 babies from illegal aliens being born at just one Dallas hospital....Every single month...
Do the numbers...Mexico is taking back Texas in short order....
Kids can't vote.
Never saw that once, in almost 40 years in CA, NV, and AZ. If fact, what I did see suggested that Hispanic men were mostly happy that some poor white sucker was removing another chronic complainer from their dating pool. :)
What I have seen is virulent anti-Asian racism by many black and white women in the West. But it seems more driven by jealousy over the Asian woman's diminutive physical size than by politics.
Calf, cow, whatever, its offal, OK bato?
It will be a shame watching Texas turn blue.
Picante outsells ketchup...
Take that john F. kerry!!!
“I do prefer menudo...”
Never tried Menudo, as a hangover remedy or otherwise,
But the Pozole and Tamales my Son-in-law’s Sister makes are to Die for.
I am able to make a reasonable facsimile of the Pozole But I’m too lazy to tackle the process of making Tamales.
Please explain to me how ‘it is over for America’...
Demographers are having to bend to the DNA findings.
My implicit point was that as hispanics get enough money their most assertive and well-off young men will be picked off by the shiksas.
That has happened so repeatedly throughout American history that only an idiot would discount it.
Once digging through some history about Herkimer New York where the Dutch, Scandinavians and Germans all attended the same "Old Yellow Church" during the American Revolution, I discovered that after 100 years of living cheek to jowl NONE of the Dutch families had intermarried with the German families. That was roughly 1800.
The issue was slavery ~ the Dutch kept slaves but the Germans didn't.
Now I know for a fact that those people ultimately got over their problems else I wouldn't be here (for just a tiny bit of the old'gene pool), but once slavery was abolished in New York and the trouble makers moved off to Kentucky, the boys and girls got down on the farm!
Culture follows the home!
Like I said...been there, done that. It's not a theory. It's history.
If you don't believe Mexican, or Hispanic males in general are like that, then...you don't know them.
Of course, virtually all cultures on Earth are like that, and even the Anglo American nation used to be that way.
But not no mo. Which means they be gone soon....
